I don't remember to download music on my camnex 602

Plug in your player into a usb. Open windows explorer or my computer and look for the new drive letter. Open the folder If that is the correct folder then go to My music and copy the songs you want to copy then paste them inside the players folder

I have movie, photo and text.dir but NO music.dir on coby 620 MP3 player. WTF? It's brandnew, Xmas gift.

I had the same problem. Plug the player into your usb on your computer. Bring up "my computer" and find the letter drive of your player. All the existing folders (movie.dir, photo.dir, etc) should show. NOW, while your still in this folder, use your toolbar on the top of your screen to click on "file" and then select "new folder". Carefully type in MUSIC.DIR, click enter and you have now created your own. I did this and it seems to work as it should. It is weird that mine didn't have a music.dir folder either! Good luck!

I dont know how to download music from pc to mp3. i copied music from cd to media library but dont knw how to transfer to mp3 player. If you could send me directions that I can read and understand, I would...

You do not need any special software. Just a USB cable that will fit your device.
  1. Connect device to PC
  2. A box should open on PC asking something like "what do you want do do?" Select the option that opens folder to view files. When folder opens, leave it open and move to step 4.
  3. If a box does not appear in step 2: click "My Computer" or "Computer" on Vista systems, then look for a device with a drive letter (usually F: or G: or H:). This represents your mp3 playerconnected to your system and you can access it from here. Click it and it will open a file on your mp3 player for you to put music on.
  4. Open the folder on your computer that contains the music files you want to put on your mp3 player. These files are usually found in you "My Music" folder.
  5. Hold the Ctrl button and highlight all the music files you want on your mp3 player. When all are selected, release the Ctrl button, right click one of the highlighted files, and select "copy"
  6. go back to the folder for your music player and right click an empty area of the folder where the files would be shown, and select "paste."
  7. Look in your tray (the little icon area near your computer's2_bing.gif clock) and see if there is a little icon that says "safely remove hardware" when you hover the cursor over it. If this is present, then click it and select the option to safely remove the device with the drive letter your music player was listed as. If you don't know the drive letter, then follow the first part of step 3 to find out what it is.

How do you down load music to thump pro glasses

Plug the Oakley Thump into the computer to let it charge for 3 hours - a connector cable should have been provided. Double-click on My Computer - your computer should have assigned it a drive letter. Double click on the right drive letter - most computers will actually label it an Oakley. Look for a folder called Music. Now you must find songs in mp3 format only that are already downloaded on your computer. Drag the music files from the folder where your music files are stored into the music folder of the Oakley.

Not the easiest unit for beginners, but a neat concept.

How to upload files from MP3 player to computer

Hi. To upload files from your E260 to your computer, you can do the following: Step 1: Browse the player on your Windows Explorer. Under "Windows Explorer", your player should appear as an icon under "Portable Audio Devices" or as a "Removable Drive" with a corresponding drive letter. This really depends on the mode your player is in -- MTP or MSC mode. Step 2: Set your Windows Explorer to "Show Hidden Files or Folders". The folder containing your music files on the player is a hidden folder, so make sure you go to "Tools" menu on your Explorer window, then select "Folder Options", then select the "View" tab, then enable the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button Step 3: If your player is set to MTP, you would find the sub folder called "PPI NAND". Open this folder and you would see a list of sub-folders, one of which is labeled "Music". Open that and you would see your music files If your player is set to MSC, open the drive letter corresponding to your E260 and you see a list of folders, one of which is labeled "Music". Open that and you would see your music files. Step 4: Select the music files you want and copy them to your local hard drive I hope the info helps.
