    My problem is a little different though, instead of not having the disk, the disk only converts 99% of the videos, and it is very hard to save it after that, because I can't stop the video or cancel it and still be able to keep the video. Plus, it really slowed my computer down, so I removed it. Any help on this problem?

When you put the mini-disk that came with your player into your PC, install the AVIconverter and it will allow you to convert certain video files into the ".avi" format, enabling you to watch videos that would otherwise be unplayable on it. there should be directions for this process in your users manual.

Describe your element gc-822 error Problem I loaded the songs and they wont play. It says "disc error."

check to see if your files are MP4, vs MP3. MP4 files won't play in this player, so you'd have to convert them to mp3.

I got my GC-1020 by itself, i have windows media player and it donloads the music but it wont let me put videos on it.

well...there isent much that you can do about well im going to go threw a couple of things becuase im not exactly sure what your talking about... this issue may depend on how many gigabytes (GB) it has videos are usually alot of memory... if you are trying to rip movies on to windows media player you have to rip them than go to your library to see if it worked than go to sync on the top andclick on it hihg light the thing you want to sync then press sync.. down here i have found a little tip that might help...

(The Player can sync most audio and video files, and pictures in .jpg format that are stored on your computer. Not all devices support all file types, however, so you should refer to the documentation that comes with your device for information about the file types it supports. Note that you can't sync streamed files.)

if none of this has helped you which i hope it has.. go under the button sync at the top click on the options ans press help with sync..

hope that helps. :)

How can I get games on my GC-1020?

The games icon appears to be left over from a feature that was later removed. The downloadable manual from the manufacturer website also shows a game function, but its not in the manual that came with my player from Sears.

Element GC-920/940 MP4 disk won't get read correctly

The GC940 DOES play videos. I have successfully converted movies to AMV format and played them, Sometimes the sound will however be a bit low.

Use this program. Make sure you have the updated codecs on your computer, and convert AVI files to AMV, then move them to anywhere on your player. I use a movie folder, and rename them to the movie I want. A full 1.5 hour movie will take about 200-300 mb of space.

Please keep in mind that the movie does have to have an AMV extension, not MP4 or MPEG.

Codecs can be found here -

Posting solution to mark this as solved (even though poster already found solution):

Go into Settings menu, select Audio, and speaker output settings. The best is Auto, which will use the built in speaker only if headphones are not plugged in.

How Do I set up The MP3 Player?

to solve this issue, load disc player into your drive. when it brings on the files down load english verson and repair version. Once you have done this go to your start menu and hit computer,go to E-drive. You will have to downsize your e-drive to fit on the same page, go back into the start menu to your my music files and downsize that window so both pages are next to one another. Make sure that your player is connected then drag the song you want on the player into the E-drive address bar. BUT YOU CAN ONLY LOAD FILES THAT SAY MP3. WMA FILE WILL NOT PLAY ON THIS PLAYER.


Anyways, I hope this helps. Happy New Year.
