Converting wma's to mp3 costs money unless you are getting the songs from an actual CD. Better to get an mp3-only music service like Limewire, Rhapsody Mp3, etc.

If you are using Windows Vista with Windows Media Player 11, you will need to follow these instructions.
Note: You will be able to download purchased/subscribed songs to the unit.

1. Start Windows Media Player 11 and then connect your unit to your computer. If you have not set up synchronization between your computer and this device, the Device Setup Wizard starts.
2. In Device Setup - Configure Sync, write a name for your mp3 player.
3. Click Finish. The window closes and the Sync feature in the Player is displayed.
4. From the left pane of this Sync feature, you can select from Playlists or Library and you will see the content of these folders in the center pane.
5. Select the songs or entire albums from the center pane.
6. Drag these songs or albums into the Sync List, which is the right pane of the Sync feature.
7. Click the Start Sync button on the Sync List pane.
8. Repeat steps 4-7 for any other items that you want to copy to your unit.

If you are using Windows XP with Windows Media Player 10, you will need to follow these instructions.
Note: You will be able to download purchased/subscribed songs to the unit.

1. Start Windows Media Player 10 and then connect your unit to your computer. If you have not set up synchronization between your computer and this device, the Device Setup Wizard starts.
2. In the Device Setup Wizard, select Manual.
3. Click Finish. The wizard closes and the Sync feature in the Player is displayed.
4. Select the Library option. On the left pane select Sync List.
5. From the left pane you can select All Music or My Playlists and you will see the songs located within these folders in the center pane.
6. Select the songs from the center pane, and drag them to the Sync List.
7. Click the Start Sync button on the Sync List pane.
8. Repeat steps 4-7 for any other items that you want to copy to your unit.

Bought a gpx8gb digital media player for my daughter for christmas. I have downloaded her cd's into itunes library. Now how do I get those songs onto her media player?



Check to see that when you rip a music CD that your music is not copy protected. The RIP function in your Windows Media Player will allow you to convert the music CDs you have purchased into either an MP3 or a WMA format.

To adjust the copy protection setting on your ripped music files,
  1. Open the Tools tab at the top of your Windows Media Player.
  2. Select Options and then select the Rip Music tab.
  3. Choose the type of music file as well as the quality with which you would like to save the music. (Your GPX player has the ability to play music files in both the MP3 and WMA format.)
  4. Make sure to use MTP when transferring copy protected WMA files.

If you are using Windows Vista with Windows Media Player 11, you will need to follow these instructions.
Note: You will be able to download purchased/subscribed songs to the unit.

  1. Start Windows Media Player 11 and then connect your unit to your computer. If you have not set up synchronization between your computer and this device, the Device Setup Wizard starts.
  2. In Device Setup - Configure Sync, write a name for your mp3 player.
  3. Click Finish. The window closes and the Sync feature in the Player is displayed.
  4. From the left pane of this Sync feature, you can select from Playlists or Library and you will see the content of these folders in the center pane.
  5. Select the songs or entire albums from the center pane.
  6. Drag these songs or albums into the Sync List, which is the right pane of the Sync feature.
  7. Click the Start Sync button on the Sync List pane.
  8. Repeat steps 4-7 for any other items that you want to copy to your unit.

Something is wrong with my mp3 player's memory


You will need to format your player.
• Connect your player to your computer suing your USB cable and in the Start menu, select My Computer.
• In the My Computer folder, right-click on the icon representing your GPX player. You will be given a list of options. One of them will be to Format your drive. Click on this to erase everything on your GPX player.
• A warning will pop up to make certain that this is the choice that you want to select.
• Once your player is formatted, reload your music files onto your GPX player.

• Open Windows Media Player. In version 10, open the Sync tab.
• On the right-hand side, there will be a listing for GPX audio player. Just above this and to the right are a set of four icons. The icon furthest to the right represents, “Format storage media.” This icon resembles a pencil.
• After formatting, synchronize music to the player. In version 11, open the Sync tab. On the far left column, there should be a listing for GPX Audio Player.
• Right-clicking on this listing will result in a menu containing Format. Select this to erase everything on your mp3 player.

How to create multiple playslists for M250


Alright, well if you are adding songs to your MP3 player by using Windows Media Player, you can create playlists there, sort the songs into what playlists you want them in, right click the playlist, and click "add to sync list".

If you are manually copying and pasting the music into the mp3 player (that's how I do it) it's a little less obvious... For me there are three main folders: Music, Playlists, and RECORD. So we want to go to the playlists folder. In there, assuming you have at least one playlist already, you can copy and paste it, naming it something else and changing its properties as you see fit (right click -> properties). To add songs to the playlist, you go to it's properties, and under the references tab, drag the music files from wherever you have them stored and drop them in the references tab. This won't move your music, it'll just add them to the playlist. and.... guess that's about it. Hopefully that helped.
