Re: stuck while loading music??

The same thing happened to mine a couple of times.. I let the battery run completely down then plugged it into my computer.. after a couple of attempts it seems to recognised the mp3 player, and works at least for a bit after that. I've now deleted and added quite a few various tracks, and it has been fine for a while now.. so not sure if it might be a corrupt/dodgy file taht I've now deleted or something?

My samsung YPK3 mp3 player is fully charged and when I go to turn it on, it freezes on the loading screen. I tried the reset button, but it didn't do anything except turn it off.

try to remove all the music on your mp3 player, copy it on your computer so you can put it back later,
after removing all the music try to open it, then if your mp3 player loads completely turn it off then put back the music files

hope this thing helps?

My m4304 mp3 player reads building database

I see a lot of people are having this problem. I received mine a few days ago as a gift and had this same problem. First, go to the RCA website and follow the instructions to re-install the player's firmware. Then, disconnect your player and turn it on once the install is complete. When you get to the main screen that allows you to browse through your folders and settings, turn your power save function off in the settings folder. This will save you a lot of frustration in the future.

When you begin loading music, use Windows Media Player instead of the software that comes with the player. Also, upload a few songs at a time. I tried to upload 3GB of music at once and had to start this entire process over. I would load around 50-75 songs, disconnect it, turn it on, let it build the database, then turn it off and do it again.

Hope this helps!!

Here is the link to re-install the firmware:

I just got a coby mp3 player for my wife, but all

I-Tunes is very proprietory, the music player is encoded on an AAC codec. The coby player is going to play Mp3 codec. There is only one way to get your music off of the itunes music engine and on to your Windows Media Player, which the coby will recognize. You need to basically make cd's of your music and then reload them onto your Windows Media Player. Unless you loaded the music from your own cd's it will be an arduos task. If you loaded the music into Itunes from your own cd's then you can re-load them into WMP (Windows Media Player). I would suggest before you load the discs that you change the settings in WMP to Mp3 and not the default of WMA this just makes it more universal ... although I do believe all coby players will play WMA. But with Mp3 codec in the WMP you can encode music at a higher kbs than WMA. That is the one thing that is wrong with apple itunes is that it can only be loaded onto Ipod players..... hope this helps

M4304 mp3 player building database then cuts off

I'm not sure if this is the correct thing to do, but it worked for mine. First, go to the RCA website and follow the instructions to update the firmware on your player. Second, disconnect the player from your computer when the install is complete. Then, turn your player on. Once the screen comes up that allows you to go through your folders and settings, turn it back off and re-connect it to your computer and upload your music. I tried to upload 3 GB of music at once and had to redo this process. So now I just upload a little music at a time.

Also, I found it is better to load your player with music through Windows Media Player than to use the software that comes with the player.

Here is the link to update the firmware:

My walkman is stuck at every moment has it's music

This, to me, says "low battery." Plus it in to your computer for a little while (thirty minutes will do to test it). If not, there is a small reset button on the very bottom of the player, you can push it with the tip of a pin or something. Hold it for about 3 seconds, and release - should do the trick!

Generic chinese mp3 player not recognized by computer

your MP3 player probably shorted. Try to drain the battery and charge it. Hopefully this solves the problem. If it doesn't your mp3 player is probably dead.

I dont have any music to start loading my mp3.How do i get music?

Two options:
1) Sign up for an online music service, or
2) Load songs directly from a CD

When choosing an online music service, find one that only gives you the songs in Mp3 format - all other formats will be either incompatible with your player or will give you headaches down the road. The other value of getting an mp3-only service is that you will be able to use the songs later if you decide to let your music service subscription lapse. Rhapsody has an Mp3 Only service, but be very cautious - Rhapsody has about 6 different subscription levels, and only one of them is an Mp3 Only service. There used to be dozens of other choices besides Rhapsody, but not anymore - most other major music service either folded, went with a DRM-protected WMA format, or went with an AAC format (iTunes).

To load songs directly from a CD, use Windows Media Player. Open Windows Media Player 11 --> run your mouse over the Rip tab --> click on the arrow that appears under the Rip tab --> Select "Format" --> change to mp3. Then put your CD in the computer's CD drive and click on the Rip tab -> it will convert the songs on your CD to mp3 format so that you can load the songs onto your mp3 player.

Good luck!

Mp3 player no instructions

go to click on support, then ultra portable support, then T10. download user manual. You should also be able to download a music manager for loading music onto your player from the website. Windows media player works well. you can also use Rhapsody.
