    Let's assume you are talking about Windows Media Center. You should have the play do the updates and add or search your system for new music, it first has to be associated with the program to play.

How do I upload music from a CD to my computer and then from the computer to my MP3 player?


It depends upon what system/version you're running and what software. Not sure about Mac, but PC typically has an autorun feature which auto opens your media and provides a selection to play or rip the music to your library, once you have inserted it into the drive. If this does not happen, you'll have to manually open it. In the lower left sector of your monitor, select the windows icon(Start), then select Computer. This will display all available drives to you. Find the CD/DVD drive and right click and run/open it. Your windows media player should then startup and give you an option to rip the music from the CD. It basically just copies it to your library without harming the CD. You then plug your MP3 unit into a port(usually a USB port). It too will have an auto run feature. If it's your first time plugging it into the PC, the system will have to search the web for software drivers for the MP3 unit before it can recognize how to read it. Once it finishes this, unplug the device and plug it back in to allow the drivers to run the autorun feature. If it still fails to autorun, just manually navigate to the drive the same as you did for the CD/DVD. Start>>Computer>>yourMP3 drive.The MP3 drive should display a manufacturers name. Then, find your music in the media library, right click/copy and right click/paste onto the MP3 drive (usually the Music folder). If autorun is working, it may offer you the option of importing the music onto the drive, rather than you manually copy/pasting it. Happy travels.

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 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.

How do you load music on it and where do you get the music?


to load music you need to have Windows Media capabilities, I use my CD's and transfer them to my MP3, u can also use the Ipod card and down load music that way.
open the Windows Media and make a play list of what you want on your MP3 in the order you want cause that is how it will play
Plug in the MP3 click the play list and click Sync tab (the down arrow ) there will be an option to sync " the name you give the playlist" to "HS UB Flashdrive" click this and it should start to down load music to mp3.
another option if you don't have the windows media once you have music(cd's) saved to your computer is to plug in MP3 and open the USB file that is your MP3 there should be a folder called music if not make one then just copy and paste the music into this folder.

Can't download music from computer


What happens when you chose open to see files, this is how I us mine. I go to the folder tree and drag my files from the computer folder to the music folder on the player. If you use windows media player you can convert cd's to mp3 from the menu at the top. if you can not see the menu right click the top bar next to the now playing button, and chose classic menus. Then go to -> tools -> options -> rip music tab and look for the folder it will put mp3's in or change it to a folde you make at the top of the folder tree say ( create a folder named AAA. right click the top c:\ drive and create a new folder and re-name it aaa that will put it at the top). then in the rip music location chose mp3 rip when cd in inserted and close out and your good to go. rip a cd and drag it onto your player.

NWZ-A828 connections problems in PC


Hi there, I can not really make out if youhave tried to locate and open your files through this method; Plug your mp3 into the computer through the usb cord. A window will appera in less then a minute (a fast computer it will be seconds) a window will appear asking you what you want to do with this'device"..Close that window (x). Click the "start" button on the screen (in one of the screens corners), a menu will drop down, click on "my computer". This will open up a window. In this window you will see numerous "discs" listed (for example, the harddrive is usually disc (c)...)I had a mp3 player that was under disc letter (f) and I've had a mp3 player that was under disc (e), I don't know why, but you need to open any "discs" you have. one by one (skipping disc (c) the harddrive usually). Once you open a disc you are looking for a folder (it could have the name of your mp3 on it, or it could be just some wild numbers, sometimes it's actually marked "music"). Just open any folders till you see the music, pictures or video's you are looking for, then you'll have found the folder to your mp3, now you can copy the song you want (or mp4 jpeg etc) and paste it in this folder and it will appear in your mp3...
Let me know how it went, , if you have anymore questions just ask me and I'll do my best...Don't forget to rate, thank you!

DVD OR CD not drive by CD-ROM


Option One:
To fix it, open “My Computer”, or “Windows Explorer”, find the drive icon for your CD/DVD player/burner and right-click on it. When the popup menu opens, choose, “Properties”. Click on the “Auto Play” tab. Click on “Select an Action to Perform”. Click on the “Restore Defaults” button and click on the “Apply” button. Then click on “Prompt me each time to choose an action” and click on the “Apply” button again. (Note: If you want it to open in a particular program each time you put in your music CD, instead of clicking on “Prompt me…” choose the program you want it to open each time you put in your CD. Now click on “Apply” and “OK” and restart your computer. Now put in a music CD and see if it works as it should.

Audiophase kp1000 mp3 player


Hello,
That usually happens when you are using Windows Media Player to download music. WIndows Media downloads music into folders either by artist or the title of the CD. Your best bet will be to start over. Connect your MP3 player to your computer, if Windows Media opens close it. Go to My computer and click on MP3 player or Removable disk. It should say Internal storage. Right click on internal storage and select format. This will erase all your files in the MP3 player so please make sure you have copies of this files. After you are done formatting. Open Internal storage and leave the window open, it should be empty. Go to start, search, picture, music or video, check the music box and click search. All your music files should appear when is done searching, just click and drag one song at a time. into the the internal storage window. Remember do not use folders just click and drag one song at time. This should take care of your problem. If you still have any questions. Please contact Audiophase at 818-767-2843 ext 117
