    What program are you using? Have you checked the burner manufacturer's site for possible updates to your model?

Why do i get format error when i put songs from a cd on the eclipse?


Hi,

1. Why do i get format error when i put songs from a cd on the eclipse?
= This is probably because the format that your songs are currently in is not supported by your device. Supported devices on the Mach Speed Eclipse 180 MP3 player are: mp3, wav, and wma. If your music is for example filename.cda, it won't be able to play because of the file format being .cda.


2. I also see the song on the eclipse but it says drm protected and will not play the song.
= When ripping your music, check your ripping options in whichever ripping software you are using that protecting music files is off, this may be the reason why your music cannot play - it may be protected to only play on the computer that ripped(recorded or duplicated) the song.

Cd player won't rip certain cds


"Quality" of the CD's has a lot to do with it. The lower the quality, the more likely better CD burners won't acknowledge them.

Cd player won't rip


Try:
1 - update driver, if fail
2 - uninstall driver,restart,if fail
3 - update firmware, if fail
Open WMP-Go into Tools - Options - Rip Music and see if you have a location the music is being ripped to. I didn't when I looked, it was blank,then go to Organise - Manage Libraries - Music, there should be a music folder location here, if there isn't press "add" and add the music folder.Now do the same for the other 3 libraries, Videos, Pictures and Recorded tv, all should have locations, delete the ones without a location.try to rip again.

Rip CD using songbird:
Insert the CD into your computer and launch Songbird.
Once the CD is detected, it will automatically show up on the Philips Songbird screen.
Click the "Rip CD" on the right hand side and the ripping process will begin.
Here is how to transfer files from songbird to your MP3 player:
1. Click "File" in the toolbar and select "Import Media". Choose the folder that stored your media files.
2. Select the media files that you want to transfer and then Right Click to display a drop list (You can press and hold the Ctrl button on the keyboard to select more than one file).

Copying a CD - How do I go from the DVD player to the hard drive and back to a blank CD? It's a Toshiba L300


Hi,

Pop your music CD into the drive and open it with Windows Media Player. In Media Player there is an option to "Rip" or "Copy" the CD.

Choose one of those options and copy the CD to the hard drive. After its been ripped you can then select the burn option and copy it to a blank CD.

It's as easy as that, however you cannot do this with DVD's just music CD's.

Please post back if you require anymore advice.



Regards.
