Doesn't show the contents of the folders/Doesn't play the content
I have an unbranded MP3/MP4 player. It only shows or play some of the contents but rest doesn't read at all. For example, it plays music files but doesn't recorgnize any video which is in MP3 or MP4 format it is compatible of. Any solution?

When your downloading music the mp3 player must completely write the data files completely onto it. Your mp3 player must not. Try downloading the data of the songs over. And do not mess with the process such as playing music on the computer or Doing anything else on the computer as well. I hope this helps.
There are a couple of ways to do this. Sony offers three programs to help you with this, one called Sonic stage, one called Content transfer, and last, Media Manager for Walkman. You can download these programs from the Sony site for free. You will also need to find a program called "Any Video Converter" It Is a free program, and you use it to convert your videos into a MP4 format that the Sony can decode and play. All you need is to pick a video you want to play on your Sony, Convert it to MP4 format, and copy that video on to the Sony player right into the players Video folder. Hook up the player to your computer, go to my computer and right click chose explore look for the Sony player on the tree open the tree in the player look for the video folder and copy your new video into that folder and your good to go. The Sony programs may or may not be useful for you. You do not have to have them. Have Fun with it.
It appears you have selected to play when inserted.
Go to my computer, right click your device, select open as a portable device. (so it can see the folder)
When the window on your desk opens select open folder.
It should open in this format from now on and you should be able to see the contents of your device.
However you failed to mention what operating system you are running so these instructions may not apply.
Also; You may have to pull those files/songs out of the folder and install them directly to your device (just as the new material is installed) because no auto-play can read a folder. This is probably is the best solution if you want the music to start playing when plugged in...
hi there, it may mean that the files that you are trying to download to the sandisk player aren't compatible with the player. For example, trying to play Mp4 content on a player that is only meant for Mp3 content.
The Sansa M200 series devices do not allow deletion of downloaded content directly from the device. You must connect he device to PC/Mac via USB to delete downloaded content. You will also need to use media software such as Windows Media Player, Rhapsody, iTunes, etc.. to see all of the music content on the player to be able to delete the songs you don't want. (i.e. just viewing the device in Windows Explorer might not show everything that is on he player.)
In Itunes, there was a subdirectory of my ipod called "podcasts." I had to move the group of items listed on my ipod into this subdirectory to be able to listen from the ipod. It turned out to be simple, finally.
