Question about Sears GC-921 MP3 Player
Been sitting at the computer for hours trying to figure out how to add my iTunes music to the MP3 player..PLease note..I have no previous expereince with mp3s
That happenned to me! What I do to put music on it (I never ran the install disk because my computer has nowhere to play it) is the following:
Plug it in to your computer.
If you're running Windows Vista or XP (I can't help you if you have another operating system) it should open a window asking whether you want to view files with the Windows Media Player or sync it or whatever...if that doesn't happen, go to "My Computer" and click on an option that reads something like "External Drive D" or whatever, as long as it's external. The right option is easier to spot on Vista, at least for me. (or Accessories... Windows Explorer)
Click on the option that says something like "Open folder to view files" (its caption reads something like "using Windows Explorer" if you want to get technical). A new window should open in place of the last one with a bunch of junk-looking icons (intimidating!). If you just opened it it will have the demo songs, LRC files and whatnot... but now is where the REAL fun begins, if you know what I mean, because it actually begins when the music is on the mp3 and YOU are LISTENING to it, because, frankly, the process itself isn't that interesting.
Back to the point, open up your source (I've never used iTunes. Oh, the cheapskate I am) of music and drag the music from that window to the Windows Explorer one. You might have trouble with this step if they're not minimized, and you might also need to mess around with the window sizes and locations for a while until you get it just right. (if I were you, I'd take a snapshot for future reference because I find it hard).
Okay, so your source won't let you drag? I did say I was a cheapskate who's never used iTunes. If that (your source not letting you drag) is the case look in the start menu... Accesories... and, what do you know? Windows Explorer once again! If you're like me, you'll be using a lot of it. Upon messing around, you may encounter the program you use with your music.is there. If so, mess around until you find your music and drag it to the mp3 player's window.
OR, better yet, your program has a "Sync" button! (sometimes disguised as "sync with device" or something of the like) Yay! Plug in the mp3 player, push the button and return to what you were doing (hanging around FixYa, I presume?). Beware, though, sometimes sync buttons erase whatever you have on your mp3 and usually add ALL the music on the program.
If the song ratio is nine parts **** to one part awesome, prepare to delete 90% of what's now in the mp3. You can do this from the Windows Explorer window if it refreshed, or from the mp3 itself. Or, if your song ratio is four parts pure awesomeness to one part coolness, prepare for the music experience of your life... unless you don't like the mp3 itself.
Oh, three last notes (as if the length of the rest of this wasn't enough). One, you can put lyrics on your songs by making *.lrc files. Two, you must never, ever, EVER, EVER (it can't be emphasized enough) forget to look in the taskbar and click the "Safely Remove Hardware" option before unplugging. Sometimes nothing will happen if you don't push that button, which is particularly frustrating if you just clicked and dragged a couple hundred songs onto your mp3... And, last but not least, check your cable. Sometimes the one included will be of the cheap-o, cruddy variety. Proceed to find one of more decent quality.
Hope I helped!
