Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
It's a basic alba mp3 player, music files on it were loaded from my laptop and were originally from my cd's. Now screen on player says "no mp3 file found" and when i tried to re load from laptop (windows xp and media player which is what i'd used before) the computer could not find the player. tried reformatting and no use - help!!
Not had player that long.
SOURCE: not playing music
No Music Files Problem solved
Plug the MP3 player to PC
In Windows XP open Windows Explorer and navigate to one of the music files
Try to play the file in Windows
If it fails, unplug player and once the player switches off carry out a reset
Reconnect player to PC and repeat the process described above
You may need to repeat this several times until the music file plays in Windows.
After this format the player using Windows XP
Select the removable hard drive, right click and select format
Choose Fat32, enter a volume label (for example GMP33005) and select quick format
If formatting fails try several times
Once format is succesfull reload your music files using the software that came with the player
Be careful not to exceed 2.5 or 2.6 GB (leave some free space as this might be needed for the player to work)
The player should now play the music files correctly

SOURCE: Album art not loading
I not entirely 100% sure, but the album art is only supported with WMA, as the album art image is embedded inside of the wma files themselves and not stored separately on the mp3 player.

I have a gpx mw3847 and I load songs by opening up My Computer, finding my gpx mw3847 and opening it. Then I go to MY Music where I have my MP3 songs and just drag or copy the ones I want over to my Player. I don't use Windows media player to load songs no any of my players

SOURCE: I HAVE AN EMERSON MP3
I have an Emerson 2gb MP3 player model EMP 312-2, not sure if this info is for you or not. Make sure you are in the MUSIC MODE, when you use the menu button to go from music mode, voice mode, settings etc. you must push menu button again when the mode you want is hi-lited. I had a similar problem. Files were loaded (my music is on my harddrive already so I just copy to mp3 player) but when I turned player on it said no files. AHA, I finally realized I had somehow got into the voice mode and I did not have any voice files, so it said no files. I then went to Folder Mode and it only said micin.dir and it was empty, THAT WAS BECAUSE I WAS IN VOICE MODE, when I switched to music mode, they were all there. I know this sounds very rudimentary, but I am pretty computer literate and had no idea how I switched to voice mode. Before I figured this out for myself I called Emerson customer service, they said it was bad firmware and send it back. If someone there had walked me through what I just told you it would have saved me a lot of time. Hope this helps.
