    There is a reason why ipods are so expensive. My kids have them and I got this cheap sandisk. It's been nothing but a headache and a waste. I've tried 2 other mp3 players too and they just arent as user friendly. The Sandisk is loaded with problems. You have to "convert" every file you put into it and some players don't recognise what you've just converted. Also, in comparison to the ipods it's difficult to manage your songs because the screens don't display enough information. I'm throwing mine out.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

How to Play With Bluetooth WMP files


<p>Bluetooth is very common in cell phone headsets and wireless keyboards and mice. It is a low power, moderate, high speed wireless communication protocol that is fast enough to transport high quality audio signal. If you have a computer with Bluetooth, you can order your audio to a Bluetooth headset or a set of speakers, allowing you to listen to music and movies played in Windows Media Player anywhere within 30 meters of the your computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Place the Bluetooth device in pairing mode. Speakers and Bluetooth headsets generally have a "Connect" button somewhere discreet; see the product manual for specific instructions on how to put it in the "discovery" mode. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Click on "Devices and Printers" computer "Start" menu and click the "Add Device" button in the window that opens. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Select the Bluetooth device in the list and enter your password security. Most devices use "0000" as a default password. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Right-click the volume control on the lower right corner of the Windows taskbar and select "Playback Devices". <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Click on the Bluetooth device on the "View" tab and click on "Default". The Bluetooth device is now the primary playback device for computer audio. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Open WMP and play the file you want. The audio must be played through a Bluetooth device. <br />

CREATING AND TRANSFERRING MP3 MUSIC FILES


CREATING MP3 MUSIC FILES

1st - You need to convert your CDs to MP3 music files.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.
There are also Freeware CD RIP programs on the Internet that embed the music title and album title automatically into the mp3 file.
OR
Download MP3 music files from the Internet, some sites will cost money to download these music files.

2nd - connect your MP3 player to your computer using the supplied USB cable. The computer will see this player as an external storage device. Just copy the MP3 music files from the computer's hard disk and paste these music files to the MP3 player.

I suggest you create a album/title folder for each CD so you can place the MP3 music files by that artist into that folder. Then copy these folders to your MP3 player and you will be able to select and play your MP3 music by selecting the album you wish to play.

To convert just about any audio file into your preferred format, download Free Audio Converter 2.3.2
http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/downloads/3249718/free-audio-converter-232/

NOTE - When the USB cable is connected to the computer, it will also charge the MP3 player's battery.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
Google search for free mp3 music files and download them to your computer. Then connect the USB cable that came with your player, connect it to your player and then plug it into the USB port on your computer. The computer will see the player as an external storage device, then copy the mp3 music files to your player.
You can convert your CDs for free and copy them to your MP3 player. Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

No audio file will play on WMP, no dvd or audio disk will play...


Windows Media Player cannot play several files in the playlist. This might be caused by one or more problems.
To find information about the specific problems, click the Now Playing tab, and then click the blue or red icon next to each file in the List pane.
In some cases, you might encounter this error message if there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. For example:
  • Your sound device requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
  • Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see Windows Help and Support or refer to your sound device's documentation.
  • You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again

Hello,

If your adding music to the device and its not playing, its because your audio files are not the correct format. This unit only plays MP3 audio or Uncopyrighted Windows Media Audio files. You can test this by connecting the MP3 player, copy one of the sampe audio files under 'My Music' location on your computer and paste it on your mp3 player. It will play the audio fine.

How to play: Hold in play button until red ligh is steady, then press Play again to start the audio.

Make sure you remove any audio file that is not the correct format.

to check format of song:

right click the song, go to properties, under properties it will say 'Type of File', make sure this says MP3, thats the safest way to go.

Cannot play .HGL files once files have been downloaded to my computer


Unless you have specific software to play the .hgl files (you could do an internet search for "hgl player"+"audio" to try and find a standalone .hgl player if you want to try this route) then you'll need the program Converter 1.4 that comes on the CD shipped with the product. This software is a program that decodes the compressed recording file (the .hgl) and converts it into a .wav file that can be played using most any PC media player; from there, you can listen to it or recode it as an .mp3 or whatever you want to do with it.
Hope that helps.
