Cannot seem to figure out how to get my Element MP3 player to play more than 10-20 seconds of each song. Must be in some sort of trial mode ....of course cannot find manual. Help!!

Does have excellent sound though.

Best Solution!!! I called tech support (866-823-1671 - very nice/helpful) because my daughter's was doing the same thing. I was told to let the song start to play, press the M button during the song, choose 'Repeat' which will bring up a list of options and then choose 'Normal'. It worked.

No file is displayed even though songs are in the mp3 player on my computer?

check the formats of the songs on the player if its mp3 format. I think mp3 songs will play expressly.

Songs only play for 10 seconds on my element mp3

The problem is that your MP3 player has selected INTRO. This will play an introduction of every song in your folder. To FIX this simply
1. Play a Song
2. Press MODE (button on the side)
3. Select PLAY MODE
4. Select NORMAL

This should fix the problem.

It only plays have of the song on the mp3 player device

if you rephrase the question we might be able to help more. if your saying it will only play the songs you have on it then go to my computerand click your mp3's name and go to the music folder. drag the songs you want on and try it again. if not then try and tell me more.
