That player is only capable of playing songs that are in certain formats. iTunes/AAC format is out of the question. The songs that you are trying to load are probably DRM-encrypted WMA's that don't have transfer rights. Either buy the transfer rights, or better yet - only download songs that are in pure mp3 format - they will never give you grief.

On my sansa e260 when i put songs on internal hard drive my song information says unknown (does not change if i change song information using wmps advanced tag editor) but if i put same song on my sd card...


What I would do is find the music file on your computer. Right click on the file and go to properties. After that you should be able to edit the tag manually. Then you should try and drag and drop the music to your player. Try this and see if it works. If there are still problems try adding music through windows media player. If you dont know how to do that here is how:
open up windows media player and connect your mp3 player then once it recognizes it open up the music library and start dragging the songs you want from the list over to the sync list and after your done click on the sync button and wait after its done you should have hours of music to enjoy

Donot know how to work it


-Plug in your mp3 player

-Go to your folder with all your songs 'My Music' and find your music files.

-Either select all your songs, open them with 'Windows Media Player' and transfer them that way.
-Or 'Open My Computer' then open 'iLo' and drag the songs from where your songs are located [My Music] to the 'Music' folder in your iLo folder.

[MyMusic] Song.mp3 >drag to> [MyComputer/iLo] Music.

Problems uploading song


Try using Windows Media Player 10 or 11 to put music on instead of the samsung media studio.

Connect your MP3 player then go into Windows Media Player, if you haven't got the latest Media Player download here - CLICK HERE

Once you've installed it connect your mp3 player then open Windows Media Player up then click on the link called "Sync", now your on there it should show your device in the top right of the screen, now all you need to do is drag and drop music you want on your mp3 play where it says "Drag items here", once you've finished choosing songs to put on just click "Start Sync", that's it.

And for future reference you can format using Windows Media Player as well.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way.

Can't put new music on player


Hi Raxter. As long as you can save files to the player (seems like pictures and video work just fine, right?), then the player is not experiencing any corruption or firmware issues. Perhaps the issue lies with the songs you're synchronizing to the player. There are several reasons why you would encounter errors when synchronizing songs to the player: (1) File type is not supported by the player -- MP3 (with a bit rate of 128 Kbps) and WMA files (with a bit rate of 64 Kbps) are the only supported music file type. MP3 music normally converted via iTunes is not guaranteed to work on this player. (2) Windows Media Player 10 is the only tested Microsoft player version to work on this player (trust me, I've had my bouts with other Windows Media Player versions lol.) Version 11 works, but I have had issues with the player experiencing errors when syncing songs. (3) If the songs are licensed or subscription, it's probably best that you use the subscription provider's media software to "synchronize" the songs into the player (like Rhapsody or Napster player. Music Match often causes the player to "restart" -- I have no idea why, better call them). Some music providers are unable to actually support the player (or recognize it for that matter). It would be best if you contacted the subscription provider to give you instructions on how to synchronize the songs from their website. If your songs are non-licensed songs (like songs from ripped audio CDs, Limewire, etc), then it's best to switch the player's mode to MSC and transfer the songs by simply "Dragging and Dropping" or "Copy/pasting" the songs to your player. To switch your player's mode to MSC, navigate the Menu as follows: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode I hope that would resolve the problem you're encountering with your player. There is another way to reset your player, but I'm hoping these options would actually let you transfer files successfully. Let me know the results.
