Each mp3 player can only play songs in certain formats. A Philips GoGear, for instance, can't read iTunes format. Some players cannot read DRM-encrypted WMA files, which is what most music services use. When you load a song in the wrong format to an mp3 player, the song appears to transfer, but the mp3 player won't actually play it. The best workaround for this problem is to only load songs that are in true mp3 format - they are accepted by 99% of digital audio players. If you give us your manufacvturer/model #, and music service name, we can tell you exactly which formats your player plays.

SOURCE: trouble getting downloaded songs to my mp3 player

I think I had this same problem. Look on your computer for the limewire folder. For instance I saved mine to my documents. open the folder. Ther should be a sub folder marked saved. This is where all my songs go to once they have completed on Limewire. good Luck :)

Songs on the mp3 player won't show up on the computer


In your windows media you will see the device name listed..you have to make sure the device is under MTP mode..then click on the player and you will see all the songs...you can just right click on the songs and delete them..if you dont want the device to sync automatically you can click on sync and then click on the device name and click on sync setting..there you can modify if you want it to sync automatically..
Should you have any questions..let me know..
P.S.Please rate accordingly...

Your songs are in the wrong format - read my "tips and tricks" on song formats, as it is too complicated to explain here. Short answer: convert the songs to Mp3 format.

Only half of my music shows on a computer while the other half shows on another.


install winamp on your friends computer and see if they show up.

Are you saying the songs don't show up on the actual device on when you connect it to the computer?

Music will not show up on player after download


two suggestions:
put player in msc mode by going to the settings menu and choosing USB mode, then change to MSC
then plug in and open the player in My Computer menu
if you do not see songs on the player, back out and format player at the drive letter prompt, then add songs either manually, drag and drop to the player (not the music folder!)
or sync the songs with windows media player 10 or 11
