    We bought three of these ... so far I've started uploading songs to two and have run into the same problem. I tried different mixes of songs and it didn't fix any thing, or allow any more songs on. Both players show less than half full (more than 500MB remaining). I scanned one for errors... none found.

    Help!

    If my songs were of a higher bitrate... the drive's memory would show full. This is not the case and why I posted that each player showed more than 500MB remaining. Any other ideas?

Probably because your songs are at a very high bitrate eg. 320 (CD quality) as opposed to 128 (average quality). Songs at a higher bitrate take up more space. So the Zen Stone can hold 250 songs at a bitrate of 128 but only, say, 150 at a bitrate of 320. Your solution would be to use http://www.dors.de/razorlame/index.php to decrease the quality of your mp3 & make the file size smaller.

Hello :

Reset your mp3 player first . If that didn't solve the problem , then I would recommend you to format your player . But before formatting you need to back up everything on it .

good luck .

I downloaded music onto my element gc-820 then go to listen and it says no file what the hell


The following may help:
- Ensure that your Music files are of the correct format (usually .MP3 or .WMA suffix and usually NOT .WAV which is the standard CD format). - Ensure that you upload your music .MP3 or .WMA files to the correct directory and names are not excessively long as some MP3 will limit the max name length. If you know a working song on your MP3, locate the directory it resides in and put your songs there. - Lastly, if you have put your song with the correct naming convention/suffix and you now see them in your player list but they will not play, then your MP3/WMA file has non-compatible 'property' whcih is usually the encoding 'bit rate' (usually anything under 128mbps fix rate is good but you can see what is acceptable by looking at the 'properties' of your working songs that are on your MP3 player)

I downloaded songs of my windows player and my mp4 player will only play the songs for ten seconds then skip to the next song.


That player is not capable of recognizing most song formats. You must download tracks that are only in Mp3 format or NONPROTECTED WMA format. Most WMA's are protected nowadays, and therefore won't work with this particular player.

Won't accept music downloads


The Media Manager is for pictures and video only - use Windows Media Player to transfer songs.

Transferring Audio Filles


The songs are perhaps in the wrong format.  This player will not accept copy-protected iTunes (AAC) files.  Also, the license on your files may not permit transfer to mp3 players. Definitely check the bitrates on your files, b/c this Sony can only accept certain ranges of bit rate.
This is my general spiel about music formats, but note that your Sony does accept DRM-protected files with transfer rights, so not everything in the following blurb applies fully to you: 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 (iTunes), WAV, RA, etc.  In addition, every file format type is in a certain bitrate, size, etc.  By far the most common issue is that the music file contains a license or copyright (especially with WMA or AAC file formats).  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.   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.
Mp3 player product documentation is not straightforward.  If a player supports only non-protected WMA files, it will merely say that it supports WMA – it will not tell which type of WMA it supports.  A player that supports DRM-protected WMA’s will usually indicate such on the box (usually with a Windows Plays For Sure logo – which is actually an ironic misnomer).  DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and it is a type of licensing system for WMA files.  It is used extensively by mp3 player music services such as Bearshare, LeapFrog, Napster, and others.  Not all DRM licenses are created equal – there are licenses with “play rights,” burn rights,” and “transfer rights.”  Play rights mean that you can only play the song on your PC – it will play fine on your computer, but it will not play in your mp3 player even though it appears to transfer.  Burn rights mean that the song can be burned to CD.  Transfer rights mean that the song can be transferred onto an mp3 player that supports DRM-protected files.  Then, there are unlimited licenses and limited licenses.  Limited licenses only allow you to play a song for a certain length of time. You would have to pay extra to continue using the song after that trial period is over – the time length ranges from a few days to several months or longer.
