Why do my songs show up on the SD card on my PC, but not on my MP3 player
My son got an MP3 player for Christmas which didn't appear to work. I downloaded songs onto 2 different cards and even uploaded songs from those cards, via the player, onto a different PC, but the player itself would not play them. I therefore thought it was deffective, so bought another for him - a Grand MP3 Player and, hey ho, exactly the same problem. The MP3 files are definitely on the SD card, a mixture of both purchased and uploaded from CD's, but the player cannot see them. Please help, I really can't see where I have gone wrong ...

Re: Why do my songs show up on the SD card on my PC, but...
I think that the problem is with the songs file formats.
Try checking that they are all mp3. if they aren't then you have to convert them using an "MP3 Converter" software. there all plenty on the web.

-try to move all songs outside the directory using your pc then test. if still not working, -insert your sd card to your phone and reformat it not on pc,then remove it and start again uploading mp3 songs then test.
You will need to format your player. Doing this will completely erase any memory on your player. Follow the steps below:
1. Plug the player up to the computer using the USB cable. 2. Double click the My Computer icon on your desktop. 3. When that opens find your player under Removable Devices or Audio Devices. Some computers will show your player twice but will have the SD MMC card showing behind the player name. That is only for formatting the SD card. 4. Right click once on the player to open the Options menu and then click on Format 5. Click OK to any warnings that come up. There may be one or two depending on your operating system. 6. Any memory will now be erased from your player and you can disconnect from the computer. 7. Reboot your computer and plug your player back in. 8. When you see USB appear on your players screen, press and hold the M button until MTP appears on your screen. 9. Reload your music.
It is easier to get a SD memory card for it. Drag and drop the music onto the window which represents the SD memory card and then just put the SD memory card into the GPX MP3 player. I have the same MP3 player and it works nice... it was a good deal for the money! Take the savings and invest in a cheap SD memory card and you will be happy.... I was!
:-) Good Luck!
you cant expect all mp3 players to play as many songs as u wnt. each mp3 player has a limit of memory card that needs to be attached. see whats the maximum memory your mp3 player can support. and also see if you can locate all the songs when the SD card is connected to your computer
