Question about Sony NW-E405 MP3 Player

1 Answer

File Error Can nyone help me as it's driving me mad. I have bought 3 new CD's recently and have ripped to my music library but when I "Start Sync" to my MP3 it appears to be transferring the files and I can play from my MP3 if loaded into my laptop, however when I take my MP3 out of the laptop and try to play normally when I go to the three new albums I supposedly copied to my MP3 I get the message "File Error". I have spent ages looking through all my other CD's I have transferred and some are in MP3 format and others are in WMA format but still play on my MP3 - however the 3 CD's I have recently copied are in WMA format and I have tried loads of suggestions to convert but get the message can't convert for DMR reasons. Please help.

Rip the songs in Windows Media Player in mp3 format. Run the mouse over the Rip tab, click on the black arrow, select Format, then mp3. The DRM license on the WMA's is going to mess you up every time.

The computer will detect your player then click on this device to view thefiles, you can then click on the music file to highlight the file and thenpress the Del key to delete the file off your MP3 player. Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses.Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX.If your player cannot play a video then it is an incompatiblevideo file format, then you need to convert that video file to a format thatyour MP3 player uses.Click on this link for instructions on converting videofiles for MP3 players :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r5874192-play_videos_mp3_playerMP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player.For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable tothe MP3 player and the computer.

How do you download music to an mp3 player from a cd?


Hello,

Normal audio CD tracks should be converted to mp3 files onto the computer's hard drive, first.
This is called ripping or RIP function.
There are several programs that can RIP audio CD.
It is important to convert music into the correct bitrate for the player to match for playback. (192 kbps is good quality and often used)
You can use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 for conversion.

When you use WMP 10 or 11 and the player is detected in the program:
1. Tell the player were your music library is: setup your music library.
2. Create a playlist; make playlist name and add mp3 files to the list.
3. Synchronize the playlist with mp3 files to the player.

If the player cannot be detected in WMP 10 or 11, but only can be viewed as a removable disk in "My Computer" : use the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method to put mp3 files from the computer onto the player.

When needing more help, don't hesitate to write a comment in this reply.

Downloading of CD's to MP3 Player


Are you trying to synch tracks directly from a CD. If you are, you first have to rip the tracks. In windows Media player, you first need to setup the type of file you want to rip to (MP3 in this case). Right click on the top bar of the WMP and select Tools|Options. Select the Rip tab and under the rip settings, change the format to MP3. Select the quality you want (higher quality means less music can be stored on your unit). 192 kbps is a good setting. Now, click OK or apply as appropriate to get out of the menu. Insert your CD and click on the RIP tab of WMP. Your CD's tracks should automatically come up with checks marks beside them. Start the RIP process. Once it is complete, you can then drag the newly ripped files from your library to the Walkman and they should be synched.

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.
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.
  9. Good Luck, I hope this helps

Iriver won't let me upload from CDs and transfer....


Best way to use the H10 20gb is by creating a directory on your hard drive with your desired mp3 format files. Use ripping and encoding software with your existing audio cds.
Connect the h10 to the PC via the UMS trick (see this website).

Using a file directory on your pc, drag and drop the mp3 files from your pc to the MUSIC file folder on the h10. Install and run the EASY10 playlist creator software on your pc to organize the new files on your iRiver player. Disconnect the USB connection and enjoy!
