Question about GPX ML648B MP3 Player
I cant seem to figure out how to get videos onto my mgx player.
music files download and play. video files don't show up on the player, have converted to avi and to windows media video file. I have the files on the player but if I try to play them it says disk empty.
From what I have gathered in my readings today. You cannot sync video with WMP 10 because the device needs to be in MSC mode, and treated more like a flash drive, the mode that it is in when Windows Media Player recognizes it, uses a different transfer system that is meant to deal with the DMA's. Anyway when you get the software that comes with it, off of the virtual CD drive, and installed. Or you can also download the software from their webpage. The Media manager application, already has a small file tree or folders for the different types of media. Music, Photo,Video. So when you switch modes and it switches folders. The Video folder has no AVI files saved in the codec that it wants to see. If your vids are .avi, I think you would then have to run them through the converter that makes the .avi's compatable the the player in the device. But I think there is an application that once you have converted them it will play them to verify that the device cann see and play them. The biggest problem that I have found so far is that the documentation that comes with the device is Very general at best, and not meant to be and actual guide of how to set up and use this device. My guess is they had someone who was going to write an owners manual, with specific instructions and trouble shooting. Which in many cases is a small book. They however seem to have edited it down to fit on one sheet of paper, to save trees and shipping I guess, So instead of instructions it is more like hints and clues. On the company website the link to the PDA userguide is dead. But there is a FAQ section next to the downloads that addresses and explains alot more of the issues. I goes into detail on how to load and play videos. It refers to the format the AVI's must be in to work, and it is not .avi which is the format many videos are in. I stopped playing with it after I got it loaded with some music so my kid could play with it. But I did notice that when you start the media manager it comes with, and then connect the device, they will sync up for about 15s. until Windows Media Player regognizes it and connects with the device. Then the media Manager closes and locks up until you disconnect the device and close WMP. Then It will let you launch the program again, and it connects and you can see the folders, so you know where the photos and videos go, just for it to close as soon as Windows Media opens again and reconnects. But I'm sure it is something simple like a setting somewhere, not mentioned in the documentation.
