How do i download music on my mp3 player?


How to Put Songs on Disney Mix Max


The Disney Mix Max portable media player is capable of playing audio files in the MP3 format. It can also play videos formatted as WMV and display photos formatted as JPEG. You can convert audio files into MP3 using the Disney Mix Max software -- Mix It Plug-in. The plug-in works with Windows Media Player 10. This software CD came with the player and is not available online. To download music to the device, you can use Windows Media Player 10 or Windows.

Things You'll Need:

* USB cable
* Mix It Plug-In installation CD

Instructions


Convert Non-MP3 Files

Install Mix It Plug-In. Insert the Mix It Plug-in installation CD into the computer's optical drive. Click "Install Mix It Plug-In" when prompted. If no screen opens, double-click on the "My Computer" icon. Double-click on the installation CD icon. Then double-click on the setup or installation file; this file is often formatted as EXE. Select to have the program saved to your desktop. Then double-click on the desktop icon -- "disneymixitplugin" to open the setup wizard. Click "Next" in the setup screen. Follow any additional setup prompts.



Open Windows Media Player 10 and create a playlist. To create a playlist, click "Library" and select "Now Playing." Drag songs from your computer to the "Now Playlist List" pane. Click the "Now Playing List" title to open the menu and select "Save Playlist As." In the "Save As" dialog box, enter a name for the playlist and select "Save."


Open Mix It Plug-In. Select "Yes" when asked to save analysis information for your music files. The software will analyze each track's compatibility with the Disney Mix Max player.


Press "Go!" to start the conversion process. Once the process is complete, an inactive "Go!" will be displayed. All music that has been converted is still listed in your Windows Media Player 10 playlist. You are now ready to download music to the player using Windows Media Player.

Windows Media Player 10

Open Windows Media Player 10 on your computer.


Remove the USB jack cover located on the bottom of the Disney Mix Max. Insert the compatible end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Disney Mix Max. Insert the other end of the cable into the computer's USB port.


Click "Library" and click a playlist name. To create a playlist, click "Library" and select "Now Playing." Drag songs from your computer to the "Now Playlist List" pane. Click the "Now Playing List" title to open the menu and select "Save Playlist As." In the "Save As" dialog box, enter a name for the playlist and select "Save."



Select the "Sync List" tab and choose "Sync List" from the menu.
.
Verify the items to be synced to the Mix Max, or right-click on a song title and select "Delete" to remove it. Click "Start Sync" to download music to the Mix Max.

Windows


Insert the USB cable to the Disney Mix Max USB jack. Connect the player to the computer with the USB cable.



Click on the desktop "Start" menu and choose "My Computer."


Double-click on the "Removable Disk" that corresponds with your connected device.


Drag songs saved on your computer with your mouse into the Removable Disk folder.


Tips & Warnings

If you converted files using the Mix It Plug-In, you will need to use Windows Media Player 10 to sync them to the player.

How do you download music to an mp3 player from a cd?


Hello,

Normal audio CD tracks should be converted to mp3 files onto the computer's hard drive, first.
This is called ripping or RIP function.
There are several programs that can RIP audio CD.
It is important to convert music into the correct bitrate for the player to match for playback. (192 kbps is good quality and often used)
You can use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 for conversion.

When you use WMP 10 or 11 and the player is detected in the program:
1. Tell the player were your music library is: setup your music library.
2. Create a playlist; make playlist name and add mp3 files to the list.
3. Synchronize the playlist with mp3 files to the player.

If the player cannot be detected in WMP 10 or 11, but only can be viewed as a removable disk in "My Computer" : use the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method to put mp3 files from the computer onto the player.

When needing more help, don't hesitate to write a comment in this reply.

How to put music on the player, wont connect to computer some reason


first of all, it depends on what mp3 player it is. but there is an obvious first step to ANY of them.
1) do you have it connected to the computer via usb?

Now that we are past the obvious, Here are a couple various solutions based on type of mp3 player it could be:
IPOD:

1) Download Itunes from www.apple.com
2) Install Itunes onto your computer.
3) Once it is installed, connect your Ipod to the computer, and it should register in itunes. Here, you can click on it, and go to your music.
4) Open a separate window with your music folder, and drag files from that window, to the Music area of Itunes. This is easy.
5) when you have all the music you want on your Ipod in the music list, press "synch". It will all go onto your ipod. and

Voila! you have music!!

Sansa:
1) forget rhapsody. its ****, ignore it, ditch it, it will charge you, and you cant even make playlists with it!!!
2) Open Windows Media Player
3) Open your music folder in a separate window
4) Drag and drop songs you want into a windows media player playlist.
5) Synch playlist to sansa.

OR

1) Still forget about rhapsody, it sucks.
2) Go to My Computer
3) Click on Removable Storage device (you should already have it plugged in at this point. the removable storage is said mp3 player)
4) Open a separate window with your music in it.
5) Drag and drop music files from your music folder into the removable storage disk. you wont be able to make playlists this way, but its easier.

Now almost any other mp3 player would work with one of these methods, possibly only with deviance in which program you will use. I hope this was of use to you.

Playlist dont Show


That player is set up for playlist transfer through Windows Media Player 10 only - you can either: 1) rollback your Windows Media Player to ver. 10; 2) attempt the firmware upgrade by running the Update tab in Philips Device Manager (may not work); 3) reinstall the installation CD - select Repair as your choice - it will add a plug-in that it may have skipped during initial installation. Good luck!

These directions only apply to the Philips SA6045/37:
It's not going to be easy, because you will have to do two undesirable things: 1) Set your player up for auto-sync, which will result in the player adding unwanted media files to your player without your consent - and possibly overloading your player; and 2) You will have to roll back to Windows Media Player 10.

If you ask me, it's not worth it, but here's the procedure:
  1. Playlists can only be synchronized to your player via “auto sync”. Autosync will automatically synchronize your Windows Media Player library content and your player content each time you connect your Player to the PC. If you use the “manual” sync option the tracks in the playlist will transfer to your player but the playlist itself will not.
  2. Hook up the Player to the computer, allow a few minutes for the Windows Media player to recognize and detect the connection of the Player.
  3. Click on the Sync tab.

  4. Click on “Sync settings” or “Set up sync”
    070507074142_18945.gif
  5. In the pop-up window, select the playlists that you want to sync
  6. Click “OK”, the sync will start automatically
Note: playlists never show up in the device panel under the sync tab of Windows media Player even if they are on your device. Check on your device whether you can see the playlist.

Sansa m250 playlists


First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:

) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB".
2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".

Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.

However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.


To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:

- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode
- Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list
- Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings"
- Check "Synchronize device automatically"
- Set "View" to "All Playlists"
- Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device
- Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.

Hope this helps

Computer doesn't recognize MP3 player -


I had the same problem, all you have to do is first turn on the Mp3.Then go to settings. Then go down to USB mode. It will probably say, auto detect.But instead scroll down to MSC. If that doesn't work try MTP.

HELP ME PLEASE with my "sony walkman NWZ-B105F MP3 PLAYER."


make sure your downloading it to the right folder on the mp3 player its usualy the music folder or you can try and use windows media player here are some instructions for that option.
--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.
