Bought micro sd card reader mp3 player from light in the box and the disc and instructions are in chinese? should have known it was shipped straight from china. so needless to say i need help putting music...


If you connect it then it's internal memory and any microSD card installed should show up as drives in My Computer. You can drag and drop music files into them.

Here is a Jwin support page www.jwin.com/support.asp?type=6

If you have the model number you should be able to download instructions.
At the very worst you could download a couple and see if the picture matches yours, or the instructions work on yours.

I had one turn up, no instructions or CD at all and displaying Chinese.
The model number was on the back, and it was a standard unit, presumably tested before shipping by a Chinese user and not reset to default.
An English manual will tell you which counting from the top those incomprehensible characters mean, and it will most certainly have an English setting.
Mine had some languages on the Chinese setting and displayed in roman letters and the second one down in Hungarian was Anglo. Google Translate could help here also.

Think of it as a MP3 player, card reader and logic puzzle.
I wish you success.

The T650n printer is displaying in Chinese? I


Make sure to follow these instructions carefully. Make sure that your printer is on ready. If you're not sure, you can turn it off and on again. Once ready, press Menu button ONCE, UP Button ONCE, Check Button 4 times. That should set it to English.

English instruction manual for chinese nokla fm5800


Well, it is a counterfeit one. Do not use it. This duplicate one does not have a warranty and will not last for more than even a year.

Always buy online from good websites, like Nokia itself, Amazon, Best Buy, eBay etc. Do not trust such Chinese sites. It is a Chinese duplicate phone. It may work in Canada. Well, you won't find any particular English guide or manual. It is not an official Nokia product. The official manuals for the 5800 is available for free on the Nokia site.
