You can get the software from www.usasupport.philips.com - be forewarned: the SA178 is an ancient player by mp3 standards. Make sure the laptop has a USB 2.0 port, or the laptop will not give enough power to keep the GoGear functioning properly.

I cant find my softwear cd rom.


Normally Insignia does not have the CD contents available for download as a whole since it is mainly Rapsody which is available separatly, and the video converter software is commercial software. So normally you would just download Rapsody if you need it. However, Insignia mp3 players can use the generic mass storage driver in almost any computer. When you plug in the USB cord, two extra drive letters will show up in Windows Explorer. Songs go into the Music folder. For neatness: Make new folder for each artist and under each artist, make a new folder for each album.

Also slight chance the USB mode got off of Automatic in the player's options.

My Craig MP4 Player Will Not Download Songs


Hi,

If you are referring to "...the disc for downloading will not fit into my computer drive...", as to mean that the installer CD is physically small, it should normally work with most of todays CD ROM. If for some reason it will not fit, then you can borrow an external CD ROM with USB attachments.

Alternately, you can download and install in your PC. However, to my knowledge, the driver (whether downloaded or CD) is only required if you are using Windows 98.

If what you mean is that your hard drive is so full that no additional programs/software can be installed, then an additional HD (internal or external) should work out.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My laptop cannot find my ypk when i plug in


plug it in and use Windows Media player to try and detect your YP-K. If that fails, you can download the software or drivers from Samsung.

One thing to try would be to copy all the files off your CD ROM onto your C: drive, then run whatever .exe file you're trying to run from the CD itself
