Sylvania SMPK8854B MP3 Player File Format Error

I have the Sylvania SMPK8854B MP3 Player, which I was able to upload music from my computer.  However, it will not play the music.  It states that  there is a file format error.  The music files are uploaded to my computer from music CDs in my personal library.  How can get the player to play the music?

Hey, the way to do it is to install that little cd that came with it and save them to your desktop…now when you see them appear open the AVI converter…this will bring up a screen that asks to add the videos you want to convert and also a destination…just browse that and find your video that you want to convert and then make the destination the mp3 player and click convert…and whallaa! it will be ready to look at in your mp3 player…takes some playing with, but you’ll get it…God bless! <><

You didnt copy the files directly from the cd did you, that will not work, on regular music cd's, the file extensions are cda,
mp3 player music needs to be mp3 or wma extension for the files to play.

Cherylharrel, for your player - smpk4068, you must select 160x128 resolution on the converter program, then click convert.

I am having this problem with videos. When I download them it says file format error and won't play. I tried what
chickap00h said to do, using the program on the cd that came with it & still no go. Mine's a SMPK4068. Going crazy here. Wondering what I am doing wrong. I know I am doing it right so it should work. Sigh...

I did not like the AVI converter that came with the Sylvania SMPK8854B. I downloaded eRightsoft's SUPER © from: http://www.erightsoft.com/Superdc.html

Important: here are the settings you'll need to convert videos to the XviD/AVI files the SMPK8854B needs (copy them into your videos folder on the player...)

Download m4a music to the sylvania smpk4444?


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

Do you know what type of video can be played on the Sylvania SMPK8854B and where can I get a program to convert it to that type?


Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is anincompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to aformat that your MP3 player uses.

if your downloading from a torrent program make sure you turn of you torrent program because if your seeding while trying to format it will do this iv had this happen to me get a fresh copy of the movie and try it again and keep trying it might just be your movie file so redownload it if thats what you are doing then when movie is done just plug the player in go to my computer and look for drives like G: H: and when one opens up and nothing is there just drag n drop the movie file in unplug the player then go to you movies and check it out....thats about it
