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 www.iwaveaudio.com, 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 dud.........help

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....

Scosche fm transmitter FMTD8 not playing mp3 files on Flash drive


I bought the fmtd8 scosche transmitter. If you're like me ,you tried to play music from you're cell phone first. That worked just fine. Then I made an sd card with a few hundred songs on it. P.S. I left the audio cable plugged in the the transmitter. The sd card with mp3. songs would not play for anything. After 2 days of trying,I finally decided to unplug the audio cable.. Voila!!!!! Instant sound.

I JUST BOUGHT A iwave fm transmitter. UNFORTUNATELY I THREW AWAY THE INSTRUCTIONS, MY CAR STEREO PLAYS MP3 FILES,BUT DONOT HAVE A USB PORT, DO I NEED A STEREO THAT HAS A USB PORT, TO USE THIS TRANSMITTER


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.

Cannot get my mp3 player to operate on the aux input consistently


I have a 2002 Pontiac Montana and I use a 2 pronged RCA plug at one end with a yellow plug and a white plug, and the other end is one plug to use for the MP3 player. Plug your RCA plugs into the bottom 2 plugs. My RCA plugs on my cord are yellow and black the yellow one is in the middle
plug and the black in the bottom one and I use the AUX input for my MP3 player. I have a SANSA
and a Ipod and they both work fine. I hope this helps. Just a FYI so you don't think your radio is
going whacko after you do get the MP3 player to work the AUX will always come on first and you will have to push the AM/FM button on the dash or the steering wheel to get the radio or DVD back on.
And the DVD player will have to be switched on for the AUX to play the MP3 player.
Have fun...

What is polarity? & help with hooking up mp3 player to car?!


POLARITY MEANS +/- AND NOT TO REVERSE. FOR EXAMPLE ON A SERIES WIRING SPEAKER SYSTEM YOU REVERSE POLARITY EVERY OTHER SPEAKER SO THE OHM LOAD DOUBLES. OR ON ELECTRIC CARS SERIES WIRING DOUBLES VOLTAGE OUT PUT AFTER EACH BATTERY IS HOOKED UP.... BASICLY POLARITY IS POSITIVE ONE SIDE NEGATIVE THE OTHER MOST CASES YOU DONT WANT TO GET IT BACKWARDS POSITIVE TO NEGATIVE ONLY CONECT SAME+ TO OTHER + UN LESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING. WHAT POLAITY HAS TO DO WITH AN MP3 ADAPTER I HAVE NO IDEA...WAIT... DOES IT CHARGE THE MP3 PLAYER??? DOES IT HAVE AN ADJUSTABLE VOLTAGE OUTPUT SWITCH?? THATY YOU PLUG IN TO MP3 PLAYER??

Car MP3 player will not play beyond first song


I have one, which is made by a company called Mach Speed. It plays through the FM freq. If yours is like mine I would make sure the songs on either the flash drive or the digital card play like they should in the computer first. I have about 1gb on mine, so I purchased some smaller flash cards in order to make it easier to manage my music because my songs play in groups, and you you have to scroll through each song in order to get to a particular song.

Also if yours is like mine, mine only plays MP3s so make sure that all of the music is MP3s. I had different types of files mixed before I realized why some songs wouldn't play.

Honestly, I am not too impressed with my player, but it works.
