Can't get my mp3 player to work iwave

Just bought an iwave mp3 player, put in a working battery, downloaded anmp3 file, and noticed when I plugged it into my computer (Toshiba, running windows 2000) that it had a couple of songs in there already. But I can't get them to play through the earphones, even though I believe I'm following the little manual's instructions. Says it has 1gig capacity, cost 19.95 at Marshall's department store. The instruction manual mentions that one should "Set the HOLD switch to the release position before operating. But I don't find anything called a hold switch on the actual gismo. It has three buttons on the side, with symbols looking like a fast forward, back, and play or stop (may be "hold"?) I notice that the material I wanted to put on the player is in there, because I can play it from there through Microsoft media player on the computer. I am not extremely skillful with this stuff (over 60 years old). Oh, on the last page there is something that says "Questions? Visit, but when I go there it asks me for my password, which I do not have. Any advice? I purchased the Universal Car Holder by iwaveaudio, and even thhough it came with insrtuctions I still can't put this thing together. How do you put the spring on and where do they go also the round ball I can put it on but what about the clip attachment. I need full visual aide it's not spelled out put this here it has a very bad picture of what it looks like from the from

Can solve your holder problem - the little holder with the ball is what pivots your holder and it will fit down in the threaded piece with firm pressure - first put on the little collar so that you can screw the hanger piece on the the holder - we puzzled with this for about half hour before figuring out.

I have the same exact mp3 (except i got mine for $15.00), the button you need to hold is the play button, that turns it on. But you could just put it in a usb slot for your computer and it automatically turns on. The manual has a section telling you what all the buttons do also. I hope this helps....

You don't need a usb port for mp3 playback, simply burn some mp3 files to a cd - not like an audio cd but a data cd (drag and, drop and burn the same way you would burn pitures to a disk) you will find that you can fit 5-10 whole albums on one disk.
Enjoy & good luck.

My iwave digital mp3 player wont turn on but the battery is full it only turns on when i connect it to my USB port at my LapTop

iWave has been scamming everyone with these. They never work for long and they're not very good. Just buy an ipod nano or touch, much more reliable. That's what happened to me when I had mine.

TJ Maxx, which is an affiliate carries the same mp3 and virus!

Norton has been know to have detected legitimate programs as malware before. What was the name of the malware that it detected on the player?

Can't get my mp3 player to work iwave

Just bought one and figured it out. On these mp3 players the default option when you turn them on is to go to the folder of files that are recorded using the microphone. hold the menu button down and you'll see a number of options. use the track skip buttons to navigate left and right and select the music option and press the menu button to select it. once you're in the music folder it will turn on to music. plug it in to usb and drag any .mp3 file to the folder in explorer and it should play. if your songs aren't playing make sure you convert them to .mp3 files before loading them.
