MP3 Player only displays ERROR...won't play music.
Just received a new GPX MW248B Digital MP3 Player. I followed the directions for syncing music & got the go ahead to disconnect but when I turn the device on all I get is ERROR. I've tried 3 times to remove all and re-sync but still end up with same result. Anyone with an idea?
Re: MP3 Player only displays ERROR...won't play music.
Actually, all 3 of my kids received one of these MP3 players. I searched the internet for hours trying to find a solution. I not only found no answer but also found zero reviews about this product. After opening all three players and seeing just how poorly the quality was, I am returning them to the store. I'm not sure what I did but I was able to get 1 (out of 60) song to play. However, I couldn't skip, pause, etc.; it just kept locking up and the sometimes the info.on the screen would disappear. The only way to try again was to remove and replace the battery. I've ordered something different for a little more money but think it will be worth it! My kids are young but this was too cheap of a "first time" MP3 player. I DO NOT recommend this product to anyone - no matter what your budget, you'd be better off to wait until you could afford something else.

Place the music files that you want to transfer into the My Music folder of your computer - Windows will re-read them, and then you can synchronize to your device. Also, make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged on the mp3 player - it probably isn't, but just check.
you have to have on your computer windows media player, then download your music into a foulder named music in my documents, that way when you open the media player the music should show in that program, then select sync on the bar and drop the music into the right side colum where said sync list then select sync at the bottom of that list of songs, of course you have to plug your device into the computer for this. good luck, it work if you do the correct thing.
Can you play at least one music from your mp3 player? If yes, the file that you're trying to play when this message appears may be corrupted. Try having another copy of the music that you want to play on your mp3 player. If you can't play any music that you transferred, possible causes could be :
1. Your mp3 player was reformatted to another file system that is unrecognized by the mp3 player.
2. The flash memory of your mp3 player was bad 3. The songs that you're trying to transfer is not known by the player ( file types other than .mp3)
Let it recharge for a few hours - when an mp3 player won't turn off, use the reset button instead of letting the power drain down. Actually, i take it back - this is the worst most godawful manual I have ever seen - this is the first Mp3 player I have ever seen without a reset button.
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard
you have to get music on to your windows media player and plug in your mp3 player and create your sync list for what songs you want on your mp3 player and it downloads itself in about i minute per song
