On your player, go to Settings, USB Mode, and switch to MSC. After that, plug your player into your Windows Vista and now you can input music on your player manually. To do that, go into your player's storage from "Computer" and you will see a folder "Music". If you do not see it, it is because it is hidden. To unhidden it, simply press ALT key when you're still on the device storage. Tabs will pop up on the top. Click "Tools" and then click "Folder Options...". You will see three tabs. Click the "View" Tab. Look at advanced options and search for the sentence "Show hidden files and folders". You will be able to mark it so that you will be able to see the hidden folders/files in your player/laptop/computer. After you mark it, close the window and go back to your device storage. Now you will see transparent folders. If you see the music folder, you can just right click it, go to properties and look at "attributes" on the bottom and uncheck "Hidden". Now you can go back to tools and switch the hidden files/folders back to hidden so they don't show up hidden files on your laptop/computer (optional). Now you can manually switch/edit songs on your player without syncing. If you'd like to sync songs instead, you can format (reset) your player by plugging your player on your vista and go to "Computer" and right click your device when you see it. Click "Format..." and your device will reset itself. I recommend you manually editing your songs if you don't want your player to lose any files. If it still doesn't work, I think you need to get a new windows media player version if youd didn't get it yet.

How do I delete music off of a coby mp829 player


I don't have this particular device. Although some players will let you delete files from the device alone, some won't. But an mp3 player should show up on your desktop computer as an external memory storage device when connected via USB. You can open it and delete music files by dragging to trash, or by right-clicking and selecting Delete. (Windows, but probably similar on Mac).

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; to which you want set-up codes; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts.

They won't sync with bluetooth iphone 6


Probably you won't be happy with my answer but sometimes happens. If won't sync, you can't do anything.. A question of "conflicts" and compatibility. I never could sync my LG headphones with my cellphone even if it did sync perfectly with a Samsung Galaxy III!

Iwave pod bluetooth speaker


Unless your PC is Bluetooth capable, you'll need to get a Bluetooth device to make it so. This is just one of many such devices to select from. Amazon com Roker Ultra Mini CSR Bluetooth 4 0 Usb Adator for PC and... They vary in size and price. Shop around to find one that best suits your budget. But you want an adaptor/receiver specifically for Bluetooth. (you will need an empty USB port for the adaptor)

Hope this information helps, best of luck!
