I bought a vidao mp3 player & can't download

After Windoze notifies that the device is ready for use, in "My Computer" you should see 2 drive letters. The first is for the internal memory of the device; the second for the MicroSD card. To add MP3s to the internal memory you can use several methods: (1) Right click on the file to be transferred and select "SEND TO a" where "a" is the drive letter from above. (2) Open "My Computer" 2 times; focus one on the source folder, the second on the destination folder then do the drag and drop routine, or (3) use Windoze Explorer to do drag and drop. There is nothing automatic about the transfer process. Note that if you use the right click method, a message may appear that the target folder cannot accept the file. Funny thing it already has before sending the message!

I have a Coby MP620. It says to drag and drop files to the music.dir folder but I have no such folder. I have the movie, photo and text files but no music. I have no idea what to do next.

When your MP3 Player is connected to a computer, you may transfer music files to your MP3 player using your operating system's basic file management commands (i.e., copy-and-paste or drag-and-drop).Connect the Coby MP3 player to your computer through its USB adapter. Select "Open folder to view files" from the new device dialog box that pops up. If the new device dialog does not appear upon the hardware's connection, click "Start," click "My Computer" and right-click the Coby MP3 player's device icon in Windows Explorer .Click "Start," click "My Music" and open the folder containing the music you wish to transfer onto the Coby MP3 player. Drag and drop the music files or folders into the Coby MP3 player's open directory. Alternatively, you can highlight the music files or folders and click the "Copy the selected" link from the Files and Folders Tasks menu in the left column. Select the "Removable Disk" drive from the list of destinations.

Are you using the Sonic Stage to transfer the songs or just coping files like you do on a flash drive?

Mp3 player say no files but i saw it accepting them

Hi, I had the same problem when transferring from Windows Media. I have ended up copying them from Windows Explorer. The best way I found was to open 2 separate explorer tabs and have the MP3 folder open under the internal device folder. The use the other explorer folder to copy it across from (it wouldn't let me drag and drop into the internal device folder unless I did this). good luck! MY new problem is that only half the songs I have saved list the names!

I couldn't get it to work through Windows Media but I was able to drag and drop using My Computer-Explore and finding the device. Basically treating it like a thumb drive.

Hope that helps.

I can't download music from my computer to my InVion 256MB MP3/WMA/REC. Do I need something special? Computer says it recognizes new hardware but I have'nt been able to download music

Are you getting a specific error message when you try to transfer songs? Does it look like they are transferrring, and then do not play? Are you just looking for the program that you would use to transfer songs? I would suggest Windows Media Player. Is iTunes your music service? If so, they will not work with this mp3 player.

You can also drag and drop the Mp3 or WMA files from Windows Explorer:
Try this - connect your mp3 player to computer --> double-click on My Computer --> double-click on the icon of the mps player --> double-click on the music folder --> drag and drop the music files to a folder/desktop of your own choosing

Check the format of the song - this player will play mp3 or wma, but if your wma's do not have "transfer rights" then you cannot transfer them to this or any other player.

When i try to sync my SA3025/37 with the songs that i have downloaded from Napster to my win media player10 as soon as the sync process starts i get an error message (win has encountered unknown problem)...


Download & install the latest synching program.

Set your music files in the desired playback order by naming them in alphanumerical sequence such as 001_Drunken Monkey.mp3 followed by 002_Massachusetts.mp3 etc. prior to your transferring into the Digital Audio Player.

IMPORTANT: The player does not support the playback of copy protected (Digital Rights Management - DRM) music purchased from internet music stores.

You can download non copy protected music to the player via Windows Explorer

Hook up your player with the PC via the supplied USB cable.

Run Windows Explorer, and select the files to download from your music file source directory.

Drag and drop the selected files to the player, which is named as Philips in Windows Explorer.

Once the transfer process is complete, click on the removal icon on the task tray to stop and eject the player. When a message appears saying the USB device can now be safely removed from the system, click OK.

Unplug from the PC and enjoy the music on your player.

Upgrade the firmware

You can find the current Firmware version of your player in the settings menu under "Information".

Regularly check for new Firmware updates. If your firmware version is the same as the latest version posted on the support site then there is NO need to update the firmware.

However, if you do not have the latest version follows the steps below.

Connect the player to your PC.

Launch the Philips Device Manager at Start -> Programs -> Philips Digital Audio Player -> SA30XX -> Philips SA30XX Device Manager on your PC.

If you do not have this program installed yet, install it from the by-packed CD or download it from

Make sure all other applications such as Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer that access the device are closed or else Device Manager will not recognize the device.

Make sure you are connected to the internet.

Click update, then follows on screen instruction to complete the firmware upgrade.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
