Tranfering songs problem

Well, I tried to put some songs in the mp3 player, but it will only letme fit 11 songs. On the computer, I checked the properties, and it saysthat the disk drive is full. I think that something is in there thattakes up all the space is invisible or something that is taking up somuch space. So how can i reset the mp3 player so that i can put theamount of songs that I want?

    I have a similar problem. 2GB Sansa player. It only lets me put in 0.5GB of songs. I get an error message if I try to put in more. The "properties" window confirms that there is still 1.5GB of unused space, but the player won't let me put in more music.



    I'm about ready to send the thing back to Amazon.

Go to My Computer in your start menu and double click while your mp3 player is connected to your PC. You will see your player listed there, right click on it and select format, you can select quick format. This will get rid of any large files taking up space. Now start adding music again. Also, when ripping music to your computer, your want to make sure you rip as Mp3, not wave, as wave files are much larger. Let me know how that works for you.

How do i tranfer songs from pc to the mp3 player


Put your songs onto windows media player. Attach your mp3 via a usb and use the sync function. DO NOT touch the play button on the mp3 and make sure you use the safe hardware removal mode or you will be in "Doggie Doo Doo".

How to put songs in this mp3 player


Use Windows Media Player (And download your user's manual while you're at it):
The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/windowsmediaplayer/wmp10/harrison_wmp10.mspx

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/faq/sync.mspx

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/mediaadvice/0085.mspx#EDF

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Click on the icon of your Mp3 player on the left-hand side of the Library

4. Click on the Songs, Tracks, or other Music Folder

5. Find a song or songs that you want to delete

6. Left-click the song once to highlight it

7. Press the “Delete” button on your computer’s keyboard

This might be because your not using philips song managing software. For example iPods need iTunes in order to put music on.

Philips should have there own software you use to put songs on.

When you brought your mp3 player it should have come with some GoGear software for putting music on.

You could alway's try http://www.philips.com or .co.uk depending on where your from for software.

If it didn't come with any software try using Windows Media Player 10 or 11 to syncronise your songs and put them on by using that.

If you need help trying to do that just let me know at t.hassall@ntlworld.com

I will provide you will instructions on how to.
