Question about GPX MW3836 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I have a mp3 gpx MW3837

IT IS SHOWING ON MY WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER AND IT SHOWED UP IN THE RIGHT HAND CORNER 953MB. I DRAGGED SONGS OVER TO THE SYNC LIST AND HIT START SYNC. I DID 121 SONGS WHICH WAS ALL I HAD BUT THEN A RED X CAME UP IN FRONT OF EACH SONG. I TRIED FORMATTING THE GPX BUT IT SHOWS 453 MB REMAINING, SO IT IS NOT TOTALLY FORMATTING IT. I WANT TO REMOVE THE GPX DEVICE FROM WINDOWS MEDIA BUT DONT KNOW HOW OR WHERE TO DO IT AT. I WENT TO CONTROL PANEL BUT IT IS NOT SHOWING THERE. HOW CAN I REMOVE IT FROM WINDOWS MEDIA AND ALSO HOW CAN I COMPLETELY FORMAT THE GPX. I ALSO HAD IT ON THE MTP TO TRY THE SYNC BUT THAT DIDNT WORK. I NEED HELP IN FORMATTING EVERYTHING OFF OF IT AND ALSO REMOVING FROM THE COMPUTER. THEN I NEED TO START OVER FROM SCRATCH WITH INSTRUCTIONS ON WHAT AND HOW TO DO IT. THE INSTRUCTIONS WITH THIS PLAYER SUCKS! THANK YOU FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN GIVE!!

This player requires a special process if you are using Windows Media Player 11 - details available from GPX's website

To format the player:

1. Plug the player up to the computer using the USB cable.
2. Double click the My Computer icon on your desktop.
3. When that opens find your player under Removable Devices or Audio Devices. Some computers will show your player twice but will have the SD MMC card showing behind the player name. That is only for formatting the SD card.
4. Right click once on the player to open the Options menu and then click on Format
5. Click OK to any warnings that come up. There may be one or two depending on your operating system.
6. Any memory will now be erased from your player and you can disconnect from the computer.
7. Reboot your computer and plug your player back in.
8. When you see USB appear on your players screen, press and hold the M button until MTP appears on your screen.
9. Reload your music.

Can't see songs on GPX Mp3 player


what operating system is your computer.XP is the operating system recommended but you need windows media player 10.If you have them both you can move/sync files thru Windows Media Player(WMP) but they have to have a drm licence. If you've got Windows® 98SE, ME, or 2000 Professional. 5 just connect it, find My computer and you should see the player listed,double click and the files should be visible. I would check your friend's operating system to see what he/she used and if any problems occurred.
MTP” mode will only work, when your player is connected to Microsoft® Windows® XP and Windows® Media Player 10. The MP3 Player will only work in “USB” mode when it is connected to Windows® 98SE, ME, or 2000 Professional. 5

When I go to sync music from Windows Media Player, it says "It is not possible to change sync settings at this time. Try again later." What can i do to get it to work?


If you normally create a profile for your GPX on your desktop computer. Delete that profile, and then add back your GPX to your computer via the cable and it should work. I presume you are using windows XP?

How do i remove gpx 3837 from my windows media and format


The songs are not in the right format for your player. I would use DRM-free Mp3 files only, which can be obtained from Limewire, Spiral Frog, or some other music service. Since the transfer did not fully complete, you may have to do additional troubleshooting on your device. Reset your mp3 player first to see if that resolves any lingering issues.

I have the MW3837


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.

My GPX won't let me take songs off it?


the easiest way to load and unload songs off of it is to go to my computer and look for it in the drives. It should have it own drive letter. When you open it you will see one folder on the drive. Open the folder and there is your music. Now just cut out what you dont want. Or if you want to add other ones just drag and drop them in there.

Remove songs that have been added to device


When your GPX MW3837 is plugged into your PC, it will show up as a drive [mine shows GPX(E:)] in Windows Explorer. Click on that drive and you will be able to delete anything from the MP3 player.
