    I plugged the Nextar MP3 player into my computer (MS WinXP) and when I attempted to copy my music files to the unit, I got an error that said I needed to format the drive. I cancelled that action, fearing that it would overwrite the firmware. When I disconnected the unit (using the stop function) and tried to access the music, the LCD now reads "FILE SYSTEM ERROR" and the drive can no longer be accessed.

    I'm having the same problem as above. I can't get into any files. I get a 'system file error' on my screen. I've had the worst luck with this thing. It was a gift....I'm very upset.

Hi,
A lot of people have been complaining about this particular product. First of all, you have to format the player, but the instruction manual doesn't even mention this..
Plug one into the usb port and wait for it to detect. Then go to My Computer, and right click on the drive and Format. There is no 'firmware' to overwrite. It's just a flash drive attached to a controllable chip. Formatting it just makes it compatible with the system you are using so that files can be allocation the correct amount of space on your mp3 player.
You should now be able to copy songs over, although Protected mp3's WILL NOT PLAY ON THIS PRODUCT!!!
Unbelievable, I know, in this day and age..
Almost makes you want to download and install Soulseek and download 'normal' versions of the mp3's, doesn't it? Because they will always play in your mp3 player?
So first format the thing. The rest is up to you ;)

Hope this helps ;)
Season's Greetings!

Hello I recently bought the phillipsgogear vibe and I don't know how to down load songs to the MP3 player


here are two methods for loading that model i know they're long but they will work either one will do whatever you prefer :)

**Drag and Drop**
Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder, available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player.
--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.

I have a sansa mp3 , i am unable to down load my bible cd to my mp3 player,cd says it will work with mp3 player


I would need more info to help, but try this. Put your cd in your computer, using windows media player rip your music to a folder you can find, be sure to ck your settings in the Media player, for MP3 output, not wma. right Click on the top menu bar, chose > tools > options > Rip music tab. Set the output folder and output file type here. once done copy from that folder to your mp3 player be sure you have the room to store the files. My set has 62 cd's I rip a cd at a time and listen to one book at the time, save the main files on my computer and swap them on off my mp3 player as I listen.

Nextar MA933A MP3 player File System error


download the disc that came with it no matter what windows/mac/lenux version you have.
drag it all out to your desktop.
look through the folders for a program with a rocket ship icon.
open it.
plug your mp3 player into the computer.
select "firmware upgrade" on the computer.
select the newest upgrade.
open it.
then click "upgrade firmware" and it'll be fixed for the system error, but you'll have to re-download the music.
