My opal 4208 rd won't play audible files

I have updated the firmware, the device is activated with audible, I am using format 4, I have tried loading the files with easyrip, widows media player ver 10 and audible manager. I have tried both MTP and MSC settings. I spent almost 2 hours on the phone with audible tech support with no progress. When the book is selected to play the error message reads :please update song license at pc". Help!!!!

Some players need license to play. One way if you can use a program such as nero, super sound recorder, media coder to name a few and record the songs again and then just copy and paste the song into the player. There are alot of free programs that do that. you can email and I will send you a list of free programs that do that. mrbruc3l33@yahoo.com

When ever i go into my music playlist some of the songs need synchronize


First off reset the device.
Then make sure your all your music files are in the supported formats. The supported formats are Mp3 WMA and Audible. Once you know that music files are in those formats make sure they are placed in the Music folder.
If that doesn't work make sure you have the license to place the songs on the device. Sometimes the files are DRM protected and you will not be able to sync them.
If that doesn't work check to see if you have the latest firmware for the media player. If not you need to update the firmware on the device. It is located at the following website under the downloads heading:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4303/kw/clip%2B%20clip
Finally if that doesn't work update the windows media player software, or which ever software you are using to sync the device.

I formatted the screenplay director hd drive and just have a screen saying :sleeping waiting for usb keys:


ScreenPlay Director Partitions
There are five partitions on the ScreenPlay Director's hard disk. Three partitions are grayed out and will list as "Healthy-Unknown" in Windows Device Manager. These partitions contain the ScreenPlay TV interface and system settings and are not available to store media files.
The two active partitions both appear as "Untitled". The larger partition is formatted with an NTFS file system. Use this partition to store your media files when you connect to the ScreenPlay Director from a networked computer or transfer files via direct USB connection.
The smaller partition is formatted FAT32 and is used only when updating the ScreenPlay Director firmware. Do not place your media files on this partition! If you accidentally store media files on the FAT32 partition, you can use a computer to move them to the larger NTFS-formatted partition. You will not be able to see media files on the FAT32-formatted partition when using the ScreenPlay TV interface.
Formatting the data partition will erase all existing data! If you have files on the ScreenPlay Director you want to save, move them to another drive or volume before reformatting.

************************************CAUTION!************************************************ Do not change (format or delete) the partitioning on the ScreenPlay Director hard disk as this will remove the firmware that enables the ScreenPlay Director to communicate with your TV set. Only media files stored on the active data partition (the largest partition) can be viewed or played on a TV. The ONLY partition that can be formatted is the data partition (the largest partition).
Conclusion: If you have deleted or formatted any of the first 4 partitions on the unit that is not the data partition. You now own a BRICKED ScreenPlay which HAS to be replaced. No if ands or buts about it. YOUR DEVICE IS DEAD.

My EasyRip program does not pick up my M4303 media player. it says connect player when i put the mouse over the button to load the vidoes. I can load audio through widows explorer, but video has to go...


You can load 'suitable' Video files (MPEG4/WMV/AVI) via Internet Explorer in the same manner as for your Audio files but in the appropriate folder(s) on your Player.
If you cannot use EasyRip, there are other 'Video Converters' that could be used to convert your Video fles to your Player supported format.
You can determine what is a 'suitable' video (or Audio for that matter) format by using Windows Explorer 'Properties' for a known files on your player.

How do i get my videos to show on my RCA ipod?


I am assuming based on the picture that you have some variant of the RCA M42XX, not an iPod (If you have a different version of an RCA mp3 player, the answer below remains the same).

In order to transfer videos to your player, you need to use the easyRip software's Player Loader module. It will convert the compatible videos (if it can play in Windows Media Player, it should be able to be converted and played on your device) and transfer them to your device for you.

Further instruction is provided in the easyRip help module that you can access by clicking on the icon on the easyRip Module Dock with the '?' symbol on it.

An excerpt from the help:
Load Media Player with Selected Files Step 1. Connect the media device you want to add the files to.
Step 2. Select which portion of the PC Library you want to select from using the "Your PC Library:" drop down menu.
Step 3. Select which files to load by adding or removing the "x" control associated with each file. The "x" can be toggled on and off by left-clicking in the box of the media item you want to select (display the "x") or deselect (not display the "x"). Note: An "x" indicates the file will be loaded. (IN YOUR CASE IT WILL BE THE VIDEO OPTION FROM THE DROP DOWN MENU)
Step 4. Select the "Load Player with Selected Files" control.

Easyrip won't acknowledge that my player is connected


you could try using super converter:

Also, try an updated firmware to see if that helps with the easyrip software.

The sansa c140 1gb mp3 device displays a message "no space for DB please delete more than 4.0MB" when I start it. I tried to format using WinXP but it couldnt be formatted. I tried the firmware updater...


If you are trying to format the device thru Windows Media Player, try just thru My Computer. My Computer>Device Name, right click and select format. Otherwise you may need to change the mode on the device. Settings>Mode or USB. Please add to the question, if you need more help. Best of Luck.
