Start up the media player, right click on the taskbar, scroll up to toolbars, uncheck windows media player. It will pop up to full screen. Now when you minimize it, it will be clickable like a minimized browser window.

How do i download music on my mp3 player?


How to Put Songs on Disney Mix Max


The Disney Mix Max portable media player is capable of playing audio files in the MP3 format. It can also play videos formatted as WMV and display photos formatted as JPEG. You can convert audio files into MP3 using the Disney Mix Max software -- Mix It Plug-in. The plug-in works with Windows Media Player 10. This software CD came with the player and is not available online. To download music to the device, you can use Windows Media Player 10 or Windows.

Things You'll Need:

* USB cable
* Mix It Plug-In installation CD

Instructions


Convert Non-MP3 Files

Install Mix It Plug-In. Insert the Mix It Plug-in installation CD into the computer's optical drive. Click "Install Mix It Plug-In" when prompted. If no screen opens, double-click on the "My Computer" icon. Double-click on the installation CD icon. Then double-click on the setup or installation file; this file is often formatted as EXE. Select to have the program saved to your desktop. Then double-click on the desktop icon -- "disneymixitplugin" to open the setup wizard. Click "Next" in the setup screen. Follow any additional setup prompts.



Open Windows Media Player 10 and create a playlist. To create a playlist, click "Library" and select "Now Playing." Drag songs from your computer to the "Now Playlist List" pane. Click the "Now Playing List" title to open the menu and select "Save Playlist As." In the "Save As" dialog box, enter a name for the playlist and select "Save."


Open Mix It Plug-In. Select "Yes" when asked to save analysis information for your music files. The software will analyze each track's compatibility with the Disney Mix Max player.


Press "Go!" to start the conversion process. Once the process is complete, an inactive "Go!" will be displayed. All music that has been converted is still listed in your Windows Media Player 10 playlist. You are now ready to download music to the player using Windows Media Player.

Windows Media Player 10

Open Windows Media Player 10 on your computer.


Remove the USB jack cover located on the bottom of the Disney Mix Max. Insert the compatible end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Disney Mix Max. Insert the other end of the cable into the computer's USB port.


Click "Library" and click a playlist name. To create a playlist, click "Library" and select "Now Playing." Drag songs from your computer to the "Now Playlist List" pane. Click the "Now Playing List" title to open the menu and select "Save Playlist As." In the "Save As" dialog box, enter a name for the playlist and select "Save."



Select the "Sync List" tab and choose "Sync List" from the menu.
.
Verify the items to be synced to the Mix Max, or right-click on a song title and select "Delete" to remove it. Click "Start Sync" to download music to the Mix Max.

Windows


Insert the USB cable to the Disney Mix Max USB jack. Connect the player to the computer with the USB cable.



Click on the desktop "Start" menu and choose "My Computer."


Double-click on the "Removable Disk" that corresponds with your connected device.


Drag songs saved on your computer with your mouse into the Removable Disk folder.


Tips & Warnings

If you converted files using the Mix It Plug-In, you will need to use Windows Media Player 10 to sync them to the player.

No sound with my hp pavilion f50 and plk audio speakers


Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.

Ok now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom toolbar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.
If there is still no sound check the control panle for any hardware issues and rectify those with the correct drivers

My hp dvd1170i dvd writer is new it will burn a cd with any program but only reads with the program it came with how can i get it to play with windows media player, media center real player i know the...


Your problem is indeed related to a software setting. When your DVD writer software was installed, it automatically sets itself the default program to play certain files(like music or movies, etc) If you want to "choose" a program to be used for your music, you have to right click the file you want to open, and select the option "Open with..." Then just select the application you want to use. If you want to make it your default application from now on, simply check the box at the bottom that says "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" Problem solved..!

Can not burn cd


Windows Media Player supports burning a music CD from your playlist. Help on using the software is available from the Help menu on the toolbar at the top of the window. The Acer may also have been supplied with another burning program such as Nero or Roxio. Again, these programs have help available. You can also find additional help online by searching for a specific problem.

Personally, I use and recommend InfraRecorder (available at infrarecorder.org). It's a free open-source burning program that's pretty easy to use.

Now, if you're still having problems, please post a follow-up comment with the details (what you're trying to do, the software you're using, errors that are popping up, etc.) and those of us here should be able to get you going.

I tried to make an exact copy of a CD via Sony Vaio but the copy is messed up. Certain cuts sound scratched. The original CD is clean and plays normally. Does my CD drive need fixing? It (software)...


What type of CD did you copy? Different CD types have different methods for copying them (Example: a music CD has multiple tracks to copy; better to rip them then reburn them onto a blank disk; a DVD disk has multiple data, video and audio files protected on the disk, a straight copy wont work). Based on your question, you tried copying a music CD. Use a program like Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, or iTunes to rip the disk, then copy the ripped tracks to a blank disk. All three of these programs are free, and there are tons of other free alternatives out there to do this.

Windows Media Player 10


You can not play WMV or ASF media on a website with Internet Explorer's Media Bar turned on. Internet Explorer has its own player for the Media Bar. To get around the c00d11cd error being generated you need to turn the Media Bar off. To disable Internet Explorer's (version 6) Media Bar click the Media button on the main Toolbar, then click "Media Options" in the new pane that opens. Now select "settings", and then un check "Play web media in the bar".
There is no need to restart your machine as this will take effect immediately.

You have a "playlist" on your PC that you are trying to copy to a CD-R. When you hit the copy button it goes straight to the c00d11cd error!
The most likely cause is DRM. Check the songs on your "playlist" to see if any of the content protected. To do this simply "right click" on each song, then select the "license tab". If any of the songs are protected then you can NOT copy them without the appropriate DRM authority. (DRM = Digital Rights Management) You will need to check with the site you purchased from to see the level of DRM used.

You have a "playlist" on your PC that you are trying to copy to another computer. When you try and play on the new computer it goes straight to the c00d11cd error!
The most likely cause is DRM. (DRM = Digital Rights Management)
It is likely you purchased and downloaded from a site Like Walmart.com Online stores like these set restrictions on what you can do with the .WMA files you download. It is likely that the DRM licence for your download restricts you copying to another PC. You will need to check with the site you purchased from to see the level of DRM used.
-----------------------------------------------
You can not copy songs from a CD in the CD drive to your hard disk. Windows Media Player generates the c00d11cd error.

The most likely cause is that something has gone wrong with the special file responsible for the "encoding". The name of the file is: wmadmoe.dll
The first thing we need to do is re-register this file with Windows XP To do this go to the "Start Menu" and select "Run". Now type in the following: regsvr32 wmadmoe.dll

If this does not work then the file itself may be corrupt. To fix this go to the "Start Menu" again and select "Run". Now type in the following: sfc /scannow
This will now scan your XP machine to see if there are any corrupt system files. If there are any then XP will prompt you for the XP CD so it can get a new copy... This may help you resolve the c00d11cd error.

This will get you up and running again, however due to some underlying problems with your installation you may actually need to re-install Windows Media Player.
