Re: FP3 PLAYER- TRANSFERRING MUSIC FROM PLAYLIST TO FP3...
I had the same problem and when I spoke to Fisher Price they had me format the player. Very quick and simple. Go to My computer, Right Click on the Drive the player is on and click on format. I did not have any songs in my computer yet so I don't know if you will have to redownload them after formatting. The player works great now and my daughter loves it.
FYI- Software is not comaptible with 64 bit computers.

You could try upgrading to Win8 Pro and using Hyper-V to install a legal copy of XP 32-bit (if you can find one), then use the virtual copy of XP to connect to the FP3. (Windows 7 Pro and Ultimate offered Virtual PC with XP mode to get a copy of XP 32-bit without the expense of a licensed copy.) Otherwise, you need a computer with an older and 32-bit OS. However, 32-bit OS's are limited to a maximum of 3GB of memory.
make sure your downloading it to the right folder on the mp3 player its usualy the music folder or you can try and use windows media player here are some instructions for that option.
--**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.
Within WMP 10 create a few playlists and drag/drop music files to the appropriate playlist (drag whole albums or individual songs). When you have constructed and filled your playlist(s) connect your player, open the sync tab, and drag the playlist(s) to the sync box. Click sync and smile. ;)
There is another way but that is called Favorites. First go to settings on the player and enable advance then go to one of your songs and press the select button then it will give you an option that says add to favorites? choose the check mark to add that songs to your playlist. Also there is a way to add playlist using windows media player. The steps given would be for windows media player 10. First click on the Library Tab thecn click on the arrow for the Now Playing List choose New List then Playlist, now add songs to your newly created playlist by dragging them to the drag items here window after you have choosen all the songs you like click on Now Playing List and choose Save Playlist As.. After saving the playlist change the settings of the player to Autodetect and connect the player to the computer. Now wait for it to be detected by the computer and click on SYNC tab on the windows media player software. There are two windows the left is where you will choose the playlist the right your mp3 player. Choose the playlist that you have created and click on START SYNC now it will be transferring the playlist to your mp3 player just go to Music then Playlist. Hope this helps :D
When you disconnect be sure to use windows' disconnect device safely thing on the bottom right part of the screen by the clock. Even though the player says it's not writing it probably still is even after a long period of time so if you just unplug it it will mess up whatever mp3 it was transferring at the time.
