Question about SanDisk Sansa c150 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Audio Problems The mp3 player loads the songs off of my computer no problem, but when I go to play them at least one of the instruments and/or vocals are reduced to the point where they're almost inaudable. The same problem also occurs when I try to listen to the radio on the device as well. I tried reformatting and it didn't fix the problem, neither did messing with the equalizers.

I have a problem that sounds similar to yours. i tried 2 things and it seemed to get better: 1) put the volume on 'loud' mode (under settings menu) 2) try using a higher bitrate for your mp3s. i changed from 128 to 192 and the sounds seemed to get better. let me know if that helps you or if you have anything else to try.

Proline instructions


First try different headphones. If its still bad try the same MP3 files on another player, if its still bad its a problem with the way the files were recorded. If fine on other player, take batteries out of Proline for at least 3 minutes and try again. If still bad you can either replace it or get it repaired, its far cheaper to replace it. A used 2gb player is cheaper than a bus ticket.

Creative zen xtra 60GB mp3 player question...


First thing I'd do is compare the sound coming from your MP3 player to the sound of the same songs playing from your computer speakers, to eliminate any possiblility of the audio files being at fault (I realise you haven't altered them yourself but they could be faulty at source)

Then check the graphic equaliser in your player and see what the current setting is. Most audio devices these days come with a range of presets and these often include a karaoke setting so I'd check thats not been toggled by mistake.

Then have a play with your EQ settings to see if you can bring the vocals back up in the mix, vocals tend to lie in the 1-2kHz range of the audio spectrum so give it a boost in this region. You might also want to try cutting the bass end, too much bass energy in a mix can steal your headroom and lead to parts dropping out unpredictably like this. N.B. if your player only offers EQ presets rather than a proper hands on EQ then look for presets with names like Mid boost or Bass cut, even a general POP preset should be OK, just avoid things like Dance, Hiphop and the like.

Song Formats for Mp3 Players Explained, Part I By Tha Mp3 Doctor I have seen...


Song Formats for Mp3 Players Explained, Part I
By Tha Mp3 Doctor
I have seen quite a few threads around Fixya in which the stated problem is that the Mp3 or Digital Audio Player will not load the songs; will appear to load the songs but will not actually play them in the Mp3 player once disconnected from computer; will skip the songs on the player, or show only “0:00” for file length; songs “disappear” all of a sudden (although this particular problem can be caused for many reasons not covered in this article); your store-bought/burned/ripped CD’s will not load into your Mp3 player; or get the error message “File Format Not Supported.” All of these problems occur because the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not recognize. Every music file is in a certain format. The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC, WAV, RA, etc. Each Mp3 player only recognizes a certain number of these formats. Every Mp3 Player is different. You will have to check your Mp3 player’s product specifications (specs) or user’s manual to find out which formats your particular Mp3 player recognizes. When you try to download or sync the wrong file format, you will get one of the errors that I mentioned above.
First things first. If you want to know what file type you have, then you must find the location of the individual music file on your computer, right click the title of the song, and select the option “Properties” from the menu. If you do not know how to do this, you will need to contact the manufacturer of your computer or go to www.microsoft.com. For all types of file except RA, RAX, and WMA, the “General” Tab under Properties will auto-populate. If your computer recognizes the file format, it will say something like “MPEG-3,” “Windows Media Audio” (Windows Media Player), “Real Audio” (Real Player or Real Network’s Audio), or “Advanced Audio Coding” (iTunes) or some other such designator. If your computer does not recognize the format, then you will just see a generic “Audio File,” and will have to download additional software. With WMA and some RAX files, there will also be a “License,” “Digital Rights Management,” or “Media Usage Rights” tab. I will explain these licensing tabs later, in the discussion on WMA files.
For every type of file other than WMA, the format error is pretty straightforward. You are trying to load a completely incompatible file format that is not recognized by the Mp3 player. To give you an example, there are currently no Philips GoGear Mp3 players that will load songs from the iTunes music service. The reason they will not transfer or play correctly is that the GoGear is that iTunes gives the users their songs in .AAC format. The GoGear cannot recognize .AAC format. To resolve this problem, you will have to convert the AAC song file into Mp3 format, or some other format that the GoGear recognizes (Note to the law-abiding: converting a copyright protected file into another format might be illegal. If you are concerned, I would just re-download the same song in Mp3 or another recognized file format – this will require a separate music service other than iTunes, in this example).

I use Samsung C3010. when playing music player, I don't hear any voice. I only hear the instruments. I've tried many airphones but nothing. can it be solved?


How are you obtaining the music that you play on the Samsung C3010? If you're recording the songs yourself, it sounds like you are recording one channel out of phase with the other. This phasing "effect" is how vocal eliminators work. Try playing back music from another source and see if the vocals return.

How do I download music from iTunes to my mp3 player?


HEYA


First of all open itunes

Link your MP3 player to your computer while the iTunes software is loaded on the computer. By itself, iTunes serves as an audio player for your computer. You can transfer audio files to your MP3 player using a USB cable which comes with most MP3 players. Your computer will prompt you to name your MP3 player, and an icon identifying it will appear down the left margin of iTunes.


Click on the MP3 file (the song), and drag it into the "Library" folder in iTunes. This folder will serve as the general place to store all the MP3s on your computer. From there, you can create new playlists to select specific songs, click on the "shuffle" option to have iTunes randomly select songs to be played through your computer, or play every song in order from the library.


Select the appropriate song or playlist, and click the "Play" button on iTunes to listen. Or drag the songs from iTunes into your MP3 player's icon in iTunes to copy the song into your MP3 player.

Mach Speed Eclipse: No Vocals!!


This is caused by the grounding connection on the earphone socket becoming disconnected, either due to faulty earphones or poor soldering.

If changing the earphones does not work, then the only fix is to dismantle the player and re-solder the headphone socket connections.

I've downloaded songs but they don't show up on my player


Each mp3 player can only play songs in certain formats. A Philips GoGear, for instance, can't read iTunes format. Some players cannot read DRM-encrypted WMA files, which is what most music services use. When you load a song in the wrong format to an mp3 player, the song appears to transfer, but the mp3 player won't actually play it. The best workaround for this problem is to only load songs that are in true mp3 format - they are accepted by 99% of digital audio players. If you give us your manufacvturer/model #, and music service name, we can tell you exactly which formats your player plays.
