Cant get my music to download from computer to mp3 player
I've purchased an Element (product name) MP3 player from Sears. I can't get my music to download from the computer to my player. The window in player show ZZZZ from the ''picture of player to computer''. I don't know what I keep doing wrong. On the back of the player, it says do not have battery inside. I'm thinking it's the actual product. Remember the product is the Element MP3 and is purchased through Sears Retail.

The following may help:
- Ensure that your Music files are of the correct format (usually .MP3 or .WMA suffix and usually NOT .WAV which is the standard CD format).
- Ensure that you upload your music .MP3 or .WMA files to the correct directory and names are not excessively long as some MP3 will limit the max name length. If you know a working song on your MP3, locate the directory it resides in and put your songs there.
- Lastly, if you have put your song with the correct naming convention/suffix and you now see them in your player list but they will not play, then your MP3/WMA file has non-compatible 'property' whcih is usually the encoding 'bit rate' (usually anything under 128mbps fix rate is good but you can see what is acceptable by looking at the 'properties' of your working songs that are on your MP3 player)
try using windows media player to load you music onto the mp3 player first open windows media player and connect you mp3 player to the pc , it should pop up in windows media player and ask you to name it, after that goto the media player music library and drag the songs you want to put on the device into the sync window on the right hand side of the screen after your done click on sync and just wait for it to finish after thats done you should have music on your mp3 player :)
there are two ways you can download music onto your mp3
you can go to your my computer icon on your desktop and go to the mp3 player file then you can open up a new window and go to where all ur music is and drag and drop the music from one folder to the other so that you will have your music or
you can go to your windows media player and go to sync and choose the music files you want on your device and then press sync when you are all finished finding all of the music you want onto your mp3
hope this helps you and if you have any other questions just ask
You may not need to format your player. Depends on how your songs are named, are you working with mp3's or wma's? Some software to name or tag wma's do not transfer the names to other players if not sync'ed togrther. Same for some mp3 tags. If your computer is a Vista you may have to go into compatibility mode to install - also Xp has some same features of backwards compatibilty. Try to download new software from manufacture. Then try and find freeware mp3 / wma tagging software. re-tag a few songs and see if they come up on screen. Dont format untill there is no other opption.
