Different players will accomodate different formats. You might have to reformat the WMA files on your PC and then transfer to your unit.

    This program will convert your files from WMA to MP3 format. These should play on your MP3 player after conversion.

When trying to play music the display shows "Unknown Format"


Only MP3 and unprotected WMA files re supported. If you upload copy protected WMA files or any of the iTunes AAC formated songs, they will not play. All purchases from the iTunes store have to be converted to MP3 before they can be played on this player.

Also, some older MP3 players will not be able to play MP3 audio encoded at high bitrates.

This could actually be an easy fix. If you have any files on the player that are not WMA or MP3 files, or that you've stored your music in folders - either way it could simply stop the drive from playing.

Incompatible Music Files: If you have loaded a music file that is not compatible, it simply won't play. The SwiMP3 player works with mp3 or wma files, but not aac (like from iTunes).

Solution: Remove the incompatible files. Convert your other music files to mp3 or wma, and if you are importing your songs direct from itunes, you'll need to convert them to mp3s first.



Incompatible NON-Music Files: An MP3 player is similar to a Thumb Drive or Flash Drive because it can hold any kind of file that will fit in the drive's capacity. However, if you have loaded an incompatible file - including JPEGs, Cover Art, Word Docs, anything that is not an MP3 or WMA file, the player simply can't translate it into music.

Solution: Remove the incompatible files, leaving only your mp3 or wma files in your root directory.



Folders: The mp3 player is not able to open folders and play music files stored inside, to the Swimp3 player the folder is simply an un-playable file.

Solution: Open the folders, move or copy the music files into the root directory (remember, mp3 or wma - not aac), then delete the folders.

I hope you find this helpful.

Nextar MA933A-20P will only play factory installed files.Music files add are present but will not play. Will only shuttle between classical and fast dance files


The following may help:
1) Ensure that your Music files are of the correct format (usually .MP3 or .WMA suffix and usually NOT .WAV which is the standard CD format)
2) Ensure that you upload your music .MP3 or .WMA files to the correct directory and names are not excessively long as some MP3 will limit the max name length. If you know a working song on your MP3, locate the directory it resides in and put your songs there. 3) If you have uploaded your songs with the correct naming convention/suffix and you now see them in your player list but they will not play, then your MP3/WMA file has non-compatible 'property' whcih is usually the encoding 'bit rate' (usually anything under 128mbps fix rate is good but you can see what is acceptable by looking at the 'properties' of your working songs that are on your MP3 player) ps. To reformat your Music files to the player acceptabel format, you need to download and use a 'Audio Media Converter'.

Music downloaded as WMA from PC to MP3tech MP3S4 wont play


Your player should support both MP3 and WMA files. What happens when you try to play an MP3 instead? Have you tried other bit-rates? Those you are trying may be too high or low.

Music files on MP3 player not playing due to license problem


This player was made before the advent of the DRM license system. You will have to use mp3 files or UNPROTECTED WMA's. DRM-license-protected WMA's - which is what most music services use - will not work on this player.

Media player will not recognize my 256 tx fm mp3 player


For your MuVO TX FM, there are a couple of other components you should download and install from the Creative download page for this player.

In addition to the latest firmware, which you've already installed, make sure you have the Creative Mass Storage Driver 1.07.00.250. This should allow your computer to communicate with the player.

Also, install the Creative MediaSource Player/Organizer 5.10.38. This should allow you to sync WMA files to your player with the proper licenses.
