Hi Faraz,

Are you aware if there was a windows software update before you restarted the system? What i suggest is to restore the settings back to the working time.

You may run the system restore. Just follow the instructions below.

1. click on start then go to All programs, click on accessories then click on system tool and system restore.
2. a pop up window will show up. just look for a specific date to click on to restore the settings back to the working date and time.

note: your files are still intact.

keep me posted!

regards,

JEff

    Hi,

    With regard to your inquiry, you cannot remove windows media player from the system because it is an embedded application that came with Windows Vista. If this is the case then we might need to try updating your media player.

    Restart your system after installing the update.

    Keep me posted.

    Regards,

I need help loading music from I tunes to my mp3


The easiest way to download music and upload it to your MP3 is to use Windows Media player. You can get a copy of the media player on the internet for free. Download it to your pc and install it. The first time you open the media player it will ask you if you want it to search your pc for music files, you choose yes and it brings in any stored music on your pc into one place. Once the music is in the media player all you have to do is connect your mp3 player with the media player open and drag and drop files to be transfered into it. The media player will first change the file format to a version compatible with your MP3 player. Once that is finished you can see if move music to your mp3 player song by song until finished. If you need help you click click on "help" at anytime it type in a question. Good luck!

I got a Riptunes MP3 player, I'm trying to download songs on there from iTunes. The player says there's no file when I try to listen to it.


MP3 players will not play any iTunes music because they are not compatible with the file format. iTunes uses a modified ACC file and the only players that will play them are apple products.

Music wont play......format error.....mp3


Most probably your system does not have the audio codec to play the .mp3 extension.

Install the codec package from http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm

or you can install the MP3 player from free WinAmp Player from http://www.winamp.com/media-player/en

Hope it helps.

What is MP3?


MP3 is the prefered method for music downloads.

MP3 is a file format on which music is created for CD downloads which can be played either, on a computer or an MP3 player (like the one on your cell phone.)

Your computer uses pre-installed software called a media player to play the MP3 songs on the CD download. If you have a Windows based PC for example (Windows XP, Vista etc.) when you click on the download - Windows Media Player will open and automatically start playing the songs.

So, you're safe to download the music in MP3 format. It will be of good sound quality.

How do i download music from itunes just to play in the media player on my pc


You will need the windows version of iTunes available at the apple site.

http://www.apple.com/itunes/overview/?cid=OAS-US-DOMAINS-itunes.com

You will also need an iTunes store account but the software walks you through setting it up.

The iTunes music comes in as I think an mp4 which doesn't play in Windows Media player. But you can click on the music and export as it an MP3 and that will play in the Windows Media Player.
