Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

Unable to play songs on the Alba 512 mb Mp3 Player

Whilst copying audio files onto the player via the USB it seems like some files from the player have been deleted as a result it does not recognise the players drive. Thus it is not possible to copy any songs across or play anything that exists on it.

Managed to fix it !

Windows XP or any other version had an issue in completely recognising the media player.
Every time I would plug in the MP3 players, Windows would show that a new hardware has been plugged in and try to set-up the drivers. It would also breifly recognise it as being a music player and assign drive E: and F: to it. However every-time I would try and select the E: or the F: drive to inspect its contents Explorer would hang-up and crash.

So I re-did this in MS Dos prompt mode. i.e. for thos who are not familiar do the following :

ClicK Start - Run - and type cmd to bring up the command prompt

then type cd\
and go to the root C:

Plug in the MP3 player and wait for the detection. Once detected on the C:\ prompt

Type Format E:\

Be Very Very Careful that you don't type ***** Format C: ***** otherwise that would be the end of your hard drive and all the data :-)

After the E:/ has finished formatting the control should return back to the C:\ prompt from where you would be able to type E:/ and go the E: drive

Unplug and plug the mp3 player again and now windows should be able to detect the player properly and not hang-up.

You may have just lost all the songs on the mp3 player but now the player is back into life. So start copying your songs and enjoy your player !

Good-Luck.

How do i get music on to my alba 2gb mp3 player


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

I dont know how to upload songs to my mp3


When you connect the MP3 player to yourcomputer with the supplied USB cable then computer detects the player as anexternal storage device or a Removable disk, you can then view the folder onyour MP3 player. Open the music folder and create a new folder on the playerexactly the same way you create a folder on your computer's hard drive. Toorganise your music, make a folder name with the name of the music album andplace the album's MP3 files in this folder, then copy the mp3 files from thecomputer into this folder.
You will then be able to select the music you want to play by the music albumfolder. To delete a filefrom your MP3 player, connect the supplied USB cable to your player and thenplug it into the USB port of your computer.
The computer will detect your player then click on this device to view thefiles, you can then click on the music file to highlight the file and thenpress the Del key to delete the file off your MP3 player.

Not enough knowledge to get songs onto mp3 player.


The songs are usually input on mp3 players via a USB cable, then you wire the cable to your computer and transfer your music files to its local folder, usually drag and drop or copy and paste. Try to find the cable, and then after downloading songs from like rhapsodymp3.com, you can transfer the audio files to its folder with the auto ~ play after you connect it to your pc. This should do the trick. :)

My mp3 player doesn't player


If you are using the Sony Sonic Stage software, then it might be
a good idea to just format the MP3 player and start over downloading music to it. You have to use the Sony Sonic Stage software or else it gives you the NO DATA BASE error, even if
you have music on it.

The songs have to be DRM-free, so you will have to either get them from Cd's, you will have to get DRM removal software (not reccomended), or you must convert them to Mp3 format.

Plug your player into your computer via USB. If Windows recognizes it, a new drive should show up under "My Computer". It may be called "Removeable media". It may be some letter like "G" or "H". If you have an SD card bigger than 512 MB, then find the removeable drive that is bigger than 512 MB that shows up when you plug in your MP3 player and that drive is your SD card.
