Question about Sharper Image Blue Hat Toy Company Kids Digital Camera
Where can I obtain more information on how to use this item? I cannot get it to work and the little booklet is no help! I plug it in to the USB port the screen comes up but it will not let me place any songs on it. Can I use my itunes playlist or must I convert it first? help!
If you are using a Mac, move to trash moves the mp3 files to the trash folder on the player. I could not "see" the trash folder on the player until I plugged it into a PC and looked at the MP3 Player in Windows Explorer. On the Mac the folder didn't even show when using ls in the terminal window. If you delete the Trashes folder it will free up memory on the MP3 Player

My daughter got one for xmas and it was easy to add songs. She loves it and her older brother wants one too.
I wish we adults could get a big one(like the old jam boxes).....cause it allows listening without headphones.
Besides being able to only select or listen to the songs sequentially, the only other drawback of the radio, that I see, is that the storage space(memory) for songs is internal 256k. It would be better to have had a slot for SD or mini SD chips.
GUEST and GPAANGEL:
Sounds like you are using the wrong type of files. If you bought the songs from itunes, you'll have to find something that converts those files to standard *.mp3 format or windows media player format.
When buying songs online, I also purchase my songs as *.mp3 format. Itunes will convert the files when added to the itune library.
The blue hat mp3 player acts like a disk only and will allow you to copy the files to it. It will not convert them.
You are probably putting too many songs on it. Did any work for you? Remember they have to be *.mp3 files.
What I did was... after connecting to computer. I located the drive assigned to it and right-clicked on it to see its properties. Then I knew how much free space it had(with the factory songs already on it). I had to select a subset of the songs my daughter likes and forego any that were too big.
I also copied the factory songs to my computer in case the radio goes bad, we'll still have the songs.
NOTE to all: To be able to add more than 125 songs you can probably get away with converting your music to 96 bit rate. Since the unit is so small and not very loud, you don't necessarily need the best quality of music. I noticed the factory songs are at 160 bit rate. I have most of my older music at 128 (which is suppose to be the minimum quality = to CD quality). Anything above 128 is better for higher quality sound systems. I do have my new songs stored at 196 bit rate.
When converting my kids CDs, I will convert them to 196 and store on a hard drive(as a back up to the CD). For this new mp3 player, I plan on putting music at 96 bit rate. This will allow for more music to fit on it.

I've never had a problem with this item. Our toddler daughter loves it and it's her favourite toy. If you don't know how to put songs on, ask someone who knows. I just burnt CDs onto our computer and went to Windows Media Player
