Can't get my mp3 player to work iwave

Just bought an iwave mp3 player, put in a working battery, downloaded anmp3 file, and noticed when I plugged it into my computer (Toshiba, running windows 2000) that it had a couple of songs in there already. But I can't get them to play through the earphones, even though I believe I'm following the little manual's instructions. Says it has 1gig capacity, cost 19.95 at Marshall's department store. The instruction manual mentions that one should "Set the HOLD switch to the release position before operating. But I don't find anything called a hold switch on the actual gismo. It has three buttons on the side, with symbols looking like a fast forward, back, and play or stop (may be "hold"?) I notice that the material I wanted to put on the player is in there, because I can play it from there through Microsoft media player on the computer. I am not extremely skillful with this stuff (over 60 years old). Oh, on the last page there is something that says "Questions? Visit www.iwaveaudio.com, but when I go there it asks me for my password, which I do not have. Any advice?

    Just recently purchased an iwave mp3 player and can not load songs to it. I believe there is a parental block that’s causing this problem. Can someone tell me how I can remove the parental block feature? Thanks

Just bought one and figured it out. On these mp3 players the default option when you turn them on is to go to the folder of files that are recorded using the microphone. hold the menu button down and you'll see a number of options. use the track skip buttons to navigate left and right and select the music option and press the menu button to select it. once you're in the music folder it will turn on to music. plug it in to usb and drag any .mp3 file to the folder in explorer and it should play. if your songs aren't playing make sure you convert them to .mp3 files before loading them.
Best,

    Here are some more tips. Be careful when plugging it in they may be infected with a virus. Also all .mp3 files you put on the player need to be in a folder named "music"

I also purchased an iWave 1GB FLASH MP3 PLAYER from Marshalls. www.iWaveAudio.com is a useless site. If you want to see you for yourself, use "iwave" as the user ID and "iwave" for the password (no quotes). There is a support form you can try to fill out, which I did, but I'm not optimiistic that anyone will contact me.

I was able to download music and run the lousy utility software that came with it, but after turning it off, if won't turn on again. Nor does my PC recognize it when plugged in.

Pure garbage. I'm returning mine to Marshalls ASAP.

That's all the information I have. Good luck all!

Just bought the 1 gig mp3 player at marshall's for 9.99 (guess they're trying to get rid of them). Haven't read through the manual completely (not easy to figure out either), but I have figured out that even though it says on the box that it converts WMA files to mp3, it doesn't, and they'll be on the player but it won't read or play them. So I either use the transfer option on Windows Media Player to drag files to the device and then right click on the song and click properties to make sure it is an mp3 and not WMA, or just transfer songs using realplayer, which rips everything into mp3's. Instruction manual says it has fm radio but mine doesn't, and the hold button is reversed. Haven't figured out the A-B button yet. These are definitely cheap little things, but I've successfully loaded about 20 mp3's on it and it sounds surprisingly good. I bought it because I'm backpacking through Guatemala and if I lose it, no biggie, but wouldn'tve paid $20 for it. If you have advice or questions contact me, we'll try to figure it out.

We had the same problem with the one we bought for our younger son. Will take the itunes, but wont play them. We transfered songs from WIndows Media Player through the URGE sync, and they all play. If you still have any of the other songs you want on actual disks, rip them to the Win, Med. Player library then sync them (thats how we got that blasted Crazy Frog song on his player, so now we don't have to listen to it!!!)

Best we can figure, all of the itunes stuff comes up as mp4 something, and says its locked. Thats why we tried a different player.

GOOD LUCK!!!

It add songs to your iwave mp3 player, you need to plug it into your computer,
then then open your Removable Disk witchever ( USB Port ) it's in F, G Or E.
The you will need to open the( Audio ) folder and you will need to Open the ( ALT ) Folder
then you can drag all your music to the ALT File. And there you have it

I got my iwave mp3 player to work. This is a generic USB mass storage device that is recognized by the Linux kernel. I was able to get it to work with Slackware 13 and Ubuntu 9.10. You should be able to transfer WAV and MP3 files to and from any Linux machine.

I JUST BOUGHT A iwave fm transmitter. UNFORTUNATELY I THREW AWAY THE INSTRUCTIONS, MY CAR STEREO PLAYS MP3 FILES,BUT DONOT HAVE A USB PORT, DO I NEED A STEREO THAT HAS A USB PORT, TO USE THIS TRANSMITTER


You don't need a usb port for mp3 playback, simply burn some mp3 files to a cd - not like an audio cd but a data cd (drag and, drop and burn the same way you would burn pitures to a disk) you will find that you can fit 5-10 whole albums on one disk.
Enjoy & good luck.

My iwave digital mp3 player wont turn on but the battery is full it only turns on when i connect it to my USB port at my LapTop


iWave has been scamming everyone with these. They never work for long and they're not very good. Just buy an ipod nano or touch, much more reliable. That's what happened to me when I had mine.

Can solve your holder problem - the little holder with the ball is what pivots your holder and it will fit down in the threaded piece with firm pressure - first put on the little collar so that you can screw the hanger piece on the the holder - we puzzled with this for about half hour before figuring out.
