SOURCE: windows vista os conflict with element gc-920/940

After hours of messing with the dumb thing. the mini disc kept jumping around in my cd rom so placed a very small piece of tape on it (highly not recomended) to help hold it in place while the cd rom read the disk. then i copied the disk into a file and clicked on the install app mp3 player utilities 4.18 and it began to install. then after looking it over. i shut down my computer. while it was shut down i plugged in the mp3 player and started up my computer. after i ;ogged on, windows asked if i wanted to search and install the driver i clicked install. when it couldn't find the driver in updates it asked if i had a diskor do i want to browse my computer. i clicked on browse searched for the mp3 player utilities 4.18 highlted it and clicked ok and it began to install and stopped half way through. and said there was an error and a part was missing. although i noticed a new drive with an asian name and there it was. i right clicked then clicked properties and gave it a new name. it worked! what a stupid process. i don't know for sure but i think it would work with any older version of windows just not vista.
thanks dennis

SOURCE: Element GC-920/940 MP4 disk won't get read correctly

The GC940 DOES play videos. I have successfully converted movies to AMV format and played them, Sometimes the sound will however be a bit low.

www.soft29.com/download/freeware/AMV_Convert_400.zip

Use this program. Make sure you have the updated codecs on your computer, and convert AVI files to AMV, then move them to anywhere on your player. I use a movie folder, and rename them to the movie I want. A full 1.5 hour movie will take about 200-300 mb of space.

Please keep in mind that the movie does have to have an AMV extension, not MP4 or MPEG.

Codecs can be found here - www.free-codecs.com/download/K_lite_codec_pack.htm

Element GC-822 MP3 Player says nothing about batteries, but must require one. What size is required? I'd like to find out without opening the package. Thank you.


I went to the Element Electronics web site and looked up the requirements. They showed the need for a single AAA battery. It did not indicate that the battery was included in the package. Thanks for your help.

Describe your element gc-822 error Problem I loaded the songs and they wont play. It says "disc error."


check to see if your files are MP4, vs MP3. MP4 files won't play in this player, so you'd have to convert them to mp3.

Wont Charge


Yeah, I had this problem too because I was connecting the USB proprietory connector/cable at the front USB drives on the computer. If you have been using front USB connecters, try using the back USB drive connecters.

It worked for me :)

Song starts to play and then stops and says format error


Try reformatting the drive first. If this doesn't work then you will need to reset.

To Reset, put the slider into the locked position and then press a pin into the reset button on the back of the player.

If none of this works, return it to the store you bought it from.

Element stick digital mp3 player won't play songs


take the mp3 player off hold and re-sync your music. i bought 2 of these players for my mom and dad for christmas and loaded them up before giving it to them. i had the same problem where it said it had music on it but it wouldnt play and played around with it for a bit. i fixed it by taking it off hold and re-syncing everything and it worked.... good luck.
