My AMT mp3 doesn't load

I've got a new AMT mp3 yesterday, and i connected it to the PC and downloaded some songs to it.
now when i want to play it, it doesn't play. i tried to connect it to my pc in "off" position for a couple of hours, which i thought would may be load it, but it didn't turn on afterwards.
there is no "loading" indication on it while in "off" position. so i don't know what actually gets it to work.
when in "on" position, it only plays songs when connected to the PC.

    I just got one of those myself. I think you have to let it charge up first, and I'm thinking it's not charged until the red light on the edge turns green. But don't know for sure yet. No directions came with it.

    I got one of these, too. When I first install it, my virus checker reports that it has a "Trojan", then when I go to delete it it it can't. I got two and they also did not come with a manual. Through a few minutes of messing with it I have found that if you turn it "on" and press the "play" button simultaneously, you get what passeth for sound. (I just got better sound by playing with the headset). Heck, if you want quality, get a Neenie nonny Nano. But this thing works surprisingly well for what it is. Hey, it'll even play disco without complaint.

    I have an off brand AMT MP3 player that does NOT have any sound when I plug in the earphone. Not sure if I deleted a file or program for the sound. It will work when attached to the USB

    Have a generic AMT MP3 (looks like a shuffle) player that will not work when it is NOT plugged into the USB port. It has a green light at one end and the green light blinks three times when you press play when unplugged. On sure if I done something wrong at the start-up page, may have deleted the program because it had several items already on it when I opened the file to get started. Can this be corrected or fixed?

    I have one of these too and it looks like an i pod shuffle but then it comes up as an AMT and i have it connected and all, that works fine but how do you get the music onto the AMT MP3? Because everytime I try to drag something in there it says that it doesn't work because it can't copy the files or move them.

    Does any one know what I am talking about?
    I am lost with this.

    I just received the AMT & I am having the same challenge, I am not able to upload music, Does anyone know what system could be use to upload?

  • ldidya Jan 15, 2009

    I posted the original subject and I wish to add a new remark.

    The device plays music ONLY if it is in "on" position when un-plugging it from the PC. which means that actually when unplugging the device from the PC while in "off" position, switching it to "on" doesn't do anything.

    is there something to do that can fix this ?

  • ldidya Feb 03, 2009


    I want to thank FastFranky for the solution to the problem.

    "The key to making it play does seem to be holding down the play button while flipping the power switch to ON".

    it came without a manual (or did my wife throw it away ?) and I'm so thankfull to you for the responsivity.

    My friend just gifted me the MP3 Player . I put some songs into it, the player played them for a while. Put after that it is not turning on.No light is flashing,neither the PC detects it.Is this a normal problem, as I have read above. What is the use of the button next to the ON/OFF button.Also, how much time does it take to get fully charged.

I just got one. Cute little thing at a cheap price. Plug it in and my virus checker wants to delete the program. Tell it that the program is OK and to leave it alone. In XP it put two drives on my system - a AMT CDROM drive and an AMT MP3 drive. Ignore the CDROM drive, at least at first, and copy your music files to the MP3 drive. The key to making it play does seem to be holding down the play button while flipping the power switch to ON. Having it on or off when unplugging from the computer does not seem to matter.Who knows how long to charge it at first?

Posted on Jan 31, 2009

  • FastFranky Feb 10, 2009

    An additional comment. It seems most of the time that you can make it play by holding down the play button for 2 to 3 seconds until the green light flashes. Once in a while this does not seem to work and I have to hold the play button down while turning it on at that point. I have not figured out what makes the difference yet.

I also had such an apple ipod shuffle like amt mp3 player. It works fine. Check if you have switched the hold button into the held position, if you did, switch it back, then follow the instructions on the manual.

I have a burning odor coming from the player, when it overheats. I am afraid that something might happen you see? Any of you have this problem?

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

I downloaded my cds to my cpu then to my mp3 player but when i go to play them my mp3 player says the songs r there but when i hit play it only goes to the songs that came with the player.. do u know why?

I had similar problem
Was due to the fact I loaded straight on to the memory card ( pulling memory card out of mp3 and placing in memory card slot on pc to download the music)
When it will only work if you connect the mp3 player to the pc with memory card still in mp3 player. then should download in correct format and in right place to play on mp3

I have purchased a AMT MP3 player. It did not come with manual or instructions. I am using Windows Media Player and it is telling me there are songs on the player that I put there but I can't get it to...

You may not have set up the AMT Media Manager program that actually comes with the device.
use the USB connection and look at the file list for the AMT player. There should be an ISO file on there called something like "AMT_Media_Manager.iso". Use any good CD buring program and use the "Burn an ISO Image" option and, when it asks for the course file, point to the iso file on the player. It will then burn the CD.
When complete, insert the CD into your PC and it should come up with an install prompt. Follow this and it will install the media manager ontoyour PC. Once installed, use this manager to transfer files to the device. In that way, it will automatically convery them to a usable file for the player.
Hope this helps,

Mp3 player displays "no files"

It is likely that the files loaded are not true MP3, therefore the PC -which can cope with WAV and other formats will play them but the player that read only MP3 cannot. Are you sure the files loaded are truly MP3?
