Cd burning error


If possible, use a second CD player/burner to burn a CD. If can't borrow one, either internal or external (USB), they are fairly cheap second hand. I suspect your CD player has become defective, maybe only in burn mode. Can you burn anything (eg, software) using this item ? ie is it only iTunes that's affected ?

Hi i have copied music from my cd but when it says to transfer to external devise it shows on mp4 but there is nothing there. not sure what i'm doing wrong.


You cannot drag and drop music from an audio cd to your computer. You need to rip it. Use itunes or windows media player. Look for the option to "Rip" music from the CD.

Downloaded the music from my itunes playlist but it does not show the music in the music folder only the music that was prestored on the player. When hooked up to the computer it shows the downloaded music...


Not all devices support the use of itunes when it comes to putting songs on them.
This is one of those devices that does not support itunes. Depending on your type, you are either required to download another specific media player to copy songs to your media player or you may just need to copy and paste in the drive like you would do on any external device.
To know if you need any media player in particular, you can go through your manual and see if it specifies the need for any media player.
Hope this solution was of use to you? Please comment for more information and thank you for using the fixya website.

Pc does not recognise my sansa; I have tried and keeps having me download the itunes and does not even recognise the external memory i added to it.


You will need to download the latest drivers on to your pc, Then turn on player, then plug into pc via usb, then try opening with media player and sync devices
or
go to start menu, my computer and see if the drive file shows up there
Do make sure the latest driver is downloaded.

Can't copy file from computer to MP3 player


In any windows program, you should be able to go to My Computer, double click the icon for the extra drive, it may show up as an external usb device, rather than tight clicking and choosing copy, try dragging the itunes folder to the new destination, i.e. your usb device.

Ipod music is gone, but still says it has stuff on it


If you do this through itunes, it should be okay. The trouble is everytime you want to update your ipod, you will need to connect it with itunes and itunes will need to have your existing library that you created for you ipod to perform a quick and troublefree update.

If you are going to get an external harddrive you will need to re-direct where itunes is saving your music and video files. Because itunes will be using your internal harddrive for the system files (that is where windows is), it will automatically save the music to your internal drive. I suggest reloding an updated version of itunes from http://www.apple.com/itunes/ here and when asked where to install it, redirect it from C:programfiles.......to your external harddrive. This way the itunes music folder will be on your external harddrive.

Hope this helps

Steps to Add/Remove iTunes


Control Panel. Add/Remove programs, Select Itunes. Computer may want to restart.

Reinstall ITunes. Computer may restart.

Go into ITunes. Select add folder. Select your mp3 folder from your H drive. Library will rebuild and for that many songs it will take about 30 minutes to do. Make sure that when you purchase new songs that the folder is mapped to your external hard drive as well. I made that mistake of not doing it and it made a big mess.

Make sure your IPod is set for manual music management.

Click on one of your purchased songs from ITunes and login to your account using your ITunes user id and password. That will enable you to play your purchased musice from ITunes. If you have activated your ITunes account to play on more than 5 computers, you will have to get a hold of tech support to reset your computer count.

That should fix the problem.

How to download on to the fusion mp3/mp4 player from itunes


I have the fusion mp4-mp3 and found that you have to drag and drop from limewire or windows media. I plugged the fusion into my computer and it comes up as an external drive. double click and it opens up the fusion. I then opened limewire and was able to drag and drop the music into it. Hope this helps.
