What kind of flash drive is it? Is there a protection switch on the device so that it will prevent accidentally deletion of files? Like a tiny switch that can move up and down that says "lock" or "unlock"?
Does your computer give an error warning window? Is the drive already full and therefore cannot hold more files?

I charged my swimP3 but it won't turn on when disconnected from the computer.


The Swimp3 Player does need to be charged for at least 3 hours for the best experience. Here are some tips that could help solve your problem:

Problem: The player doesn't turn on.

Suggestion: Charge the battery in the player for at least three hours, this will allow it to fully charge. You can charge it by plugging it into the USB port on your computer or by using a USB wall charger (sold separately). If you do choose to use a computer to charge it, be sure your computer is turned on. If there is no power to the computer, then no power is going to the USB port to charge the Swimp3 player.

Additional Tip: The charging answers are in the Green Indicator Light.

If the green light is flashing off and on, then your SwiMP3 player is charging

If the light is solid green, the SwiMP3 player is fully charged

If you have no green light - then it is not receiving a charge - check the connection, make sure its plugged in properly, or check to see that there is power from the computer or USB wall charger.



Problem: I have charged my player, the light is solid green, but no music plays.


Suggestion 1: Have you loaded music onto the player? Try adding a few mp3 or wma files and test it again.

Suggestion 2: If the power is on, you loaded music, clicked the Play button and no music comes out, press and hold the RESET button for 4 seconds. It's kind of like rebooting your computer when it crashes. Many times a simple reset clears up any challenges.



If that doesn't work, then it could be the

* volume

* incompatible files or

* folders




Volume: On some units the factory volume setting is very low.

Solution: Try turning up the volume by pressing and holding the "+" PLUS button. If you click the "+" button it changes the song, pressing and holding the button will actually control the volume. And if its too loud, press and hold the "-" MINUS button to bring the volume back down.





Incompatible Music Files: If you have loaded a music file that is not compatible, it simply won't play. The SwiMP3 player works with mp3 or wma files, but not aac (like from iTunes).

Solution: Remove the incompatible files. Convert your other music files to mp3 or wma, and if you are importing your songs direct from itunes, you'll need to convert them to mp3s first.



Incompatible NON-Music Files: An MP3 player is similar to a Thumb Drive or Flash Drive because it can hold any kind of file that will fit in the drive's capacity. However, if you have loaded an incompatible file - including JPEGs, Cover Art, Word Docs, anything that is not an MP3 or WMA file, the player simply can't translate it into music.

Solution: Remove the incompatible files, leaving only your mp3 or wma files in your root directory.



Folders: The mp3 player is not able to open folders and play music files stored inside, to the Swimp3 player the folder is simply an un-playable file.

Solution: Open the folders, move or copy the music files into the root directory (remember, mp3 or wma - not aac), then delete the folders.

This could actually be an easy fix. If you have any files on the player that are not WMA or MP3 files, or that you've stored your music in folders - either way it could simply stop the drive from playing.

Solution: Remove the incompatible files. Convert your other music files to mp3 or wma, and if you are importing your songs direct from itunes, you'll need to convert them to mp3s first.

Make sure you don't have to many folders or sub folders, best to keep it simple.

Wipe the card and format it as "FAT" not "FAT32" just right click your usb or SD card in vista or XP and select format.

Drop your MP3 album onto the card, If you use your USB Stick and SD card at the same time then it will default to SD and not play from both.

I found it would not read from one card unless I had a playlist, so I used a free program called Playlist creator 3 - get it here (only relates to MP3's)

http://www.soft32.com/download_66536.html

I dropped and xvid movie onto the SD card and it played fine, just make sure you are in the correct menu 1st! and the movie isn't in some very old format as it may not play all codecs (encoding used to make movie)

Hope this helps

My songs show up in music folder on the drive, but not on the actual player.


Backup the songs on the player, delete them from it and load them back on. This should build the song lists back up.

Hi,

Power ON the frame.

Connect the small end of the USB cable to the USB port on the side panel of the Digital Photo Frame.

Connect the larger end of the USB cable to the USB port on your computer.

You will see some extra "Removable Disc" drives in "My Computer" -- One for each of the memory card slots on the Digital Photo Frame.

And the last one is for the Internal Memory of the frame. Double-click on the last "Removable Disc" icon to access the internal memory of the frame.

From here you can copy images and music files to the frame. You need to transfer the images or music files into this folder (which is the internal memory of the frame).

Copy the files from your computer and paste them in this folder.

The picture files should be in the "standard JPEG" format and the music files should be in the "mp3" format.

To disconnect the Digital Photo Frame from your computer:
In Windows, on the bottom taskbar, right click the icon which appears in a green color, (this icon has an arrow pointing towards the left) and select "Safely Remove Hardware".

The Safely Remove Hardware" dialog box will appear.

Select "USB Mass Storage Device" and click "STOP"
On the next dialog box, click "OK" to remove the storage device.

On the next dialog box, select "CLOSE" and disconnect the USB cable from your computer.

Now you should be able to see the pictures on the digital photo frame.

Now you can play.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Remember when you format memory like a hard drive you erase everything. Move music to your internal mp3 memory and do a profile - folders should appear. If you have flashed your player with the firmware update you can get 520 songs on the player for both internal and external combined but be warned that if you exceed this count your player will start to forget the earlier loaded songs - listed but not addressable (playable). The same is for the folder count eg. add album = artist + ablum title (min 2 folders). Plus always profile your songs after loading new music or deleting as this is an index build process to play song 152 = title x. This includes accidental radio recordings to MP3s. RD2312 , RD2315, RD2317 Lyra™ mp3 flash player Firmware/Application Upgrade Version 3.11 fixes:
  • Supports a total of 520 songs, in up to 50 folders, with up to 8 levels of subfolders.
