Question about Finis Swi MP3 Player

USB connector problem

The new SwimP3 I bought arrived last evening ago but I had great difficulty opening the housing to its USB connector. I finally opened it and started to charge it. After charging, I discovered the white plastic lid under the exposed USB connector of the SWIMP3 chipped badly as I removed it from the USB port or my pc. I doubt the USB connector will be waterproof because of the damage. The USB connector of this SWIMP3 is probably defective. I have a lot of USB equipment and none of the USB connectors ever get broken this way. Can I replace the USB connector assembly easily? If not shall I contact the seller and ask for an excahnge? or shall I contact the manufacturer instead?

It shouldn't be a problem. Check the SwimP3 V2 FAQ website. It says:

Q: The cap that covers the USB port on my SwiMP3 came off during my swim, will this damage my player? A: No, the SwiMP3's USB port is completely waterproof, the cap is there to keep the USB port generally dry so you wont have to dry it by hand before connecting it to your computer.

My smoker no longer heats up


I just bought a new Masterbuilt Smoker by default, two weeks ago I borrowed a friend’s to smoke about 30lb. of Salmon to then can. Ran the smoker every day for three day. ON my last batch the heating element would not work. Talk about Frustrated! The Smoker was only 2 yrs. old.

Knowing I borrowed I felt I had to replace. So online to Cabelas and I ordered my buddy a new smoker and had it shipped. I then found this website... GOT TO LOVE the internet. I saw many other people had the same problem.

Found an Answer...

The Problem was one of the connector to the heating element was poor quality and if you don't clean your smoker on a regular basis. The heat and moister caused the small copper connector to corrode and the wire to come loose. I took a wood chisel and cut off all the rivets on the back. I was then able to pull the back off with no damage and access the small box in the lower back. I found the connector. Went to the hardware store and bought a replacement for .75 cents. A pair of wire crimpers and the problem was fixed. I also bought ½ inch Sheet metal screws to secure the back it was good as new. So I returned the smoker to my buddy and kept the new one. When it arrived I saw Masterbuilt has since fixed the problem and provided an access panel to the element and connectors.

One earpiece is sounding scratchy


Typically the Swimp3 player sounds great right out of the package. In fact we've had many customers who have used it successfully for years. Like all electronics though, sometimes there is simply a problem.

Your new player is backed by the manufacturer's 90 day warranty. You can contact the store or website for an exchange or contact Finis directly to get a warranty replacement. http://www.finisinc.com/Contact/

Have fun swimming to your favorite music with your Swimp3 mp3 player.

I purchased a masterbuilt smoker in Jan/2010 Model E 20070910. First time I used it had no problem with generating smoke but ever since I can not generate smoke I've tried pellets & even Hickory...

One of side speakers doesn't play anymore


If this is a recent purchase, your new Swimp3 player is backed by the manufacturer's 90 day warranty.

Typically the Swimp3 player sounds great right out of the package. In fact we've had many customers who have used it successfully for years. Like all electronics though, sometimes there is simply a problem.

If it is not new, you may want to check the wires and be sure they haven't come loose. Since it is a sealed device, there is no official over the counter fix for the problem if the wire has shorted.

One problem we have noted is that customer shove the player in the gym bag, instead of putting in a protective bag that is comes with. This can cause undue stress when you stretch the wires. You should always protect your swimp3 from that kind of damage, too.

I hope this is helpful to you. Have fun swimming to your favorite music with your Swimp3.

I used to be able to get my swimp3 to work fine from my itunes, now even with the same songs as before it says there isn't enough space even though on screen the file is reading as empty? Does anyone know...


I haven't seen a similar problem, however, my first suggestion would be to try the RESET function.

Second would be to make sure you didn't load the songs into folders on the device - they will only work in the root directory.

Last, I would look for any NON-music files or folders. If you have accidentally transferred other files that could keep it from playing

Remember though, the Swimp3 Players are compatible with iTunes, however, they can't play any AAC / encrypted songs.

Good Luck

The threads are stripped on my Hayward sand filter drain plug.


I've had the same problem every year since I bought this house 10 years ago with my Hayward filter drain and finally MacGyvered a great solution. Went to Home Depot and bought a 1" PVC shutoff valve. The Hayward drain has an outside 1 1/4" thread. The part I got was an 'Aqua-Dynamic' 1" PVC Schedule 40(I can't find a picture of it on the internet). It is a white PVC valve with an inside thread that mates with the Hayward and a red shutoff winged knob. You need to hacksaw the red wings off the knob in order to be able to screw it onto the drain because the filter's base gets in the way. Leave the valve in the open position(especially if water is still draining with filter off) and put PVC cement on the outside of the drain thhreads and a bit on the inside of the valve and screw it on. When the glue dries(5 minutes), you now have a drain that you can open and close every year with ease(you need a pair of pliers because the wings are off the turn knob but it works great!)

Got to help with computer


  1. Connect the USB cable to the back side of the device
  2. Connection the USB side of the cable into the USB port on your computer
  3. If you are using a Windows PC, you can locate your swimp3 drive in 'My Computer'
  4. If you are using a MAC, you will see a new icon appear on your desktop 'NO NAME'
  5. If you have MP3s on your computer you can drag and drop files onto your swimp3 drive
Once you have all the songs loaded onto your device, eject your device and enjoy listening to music underwater.
