    Can you pull off music on the dell dj? I have one, but ended up loosing it all when I put on my new stuff. I have a mac so I use XNJB but I didn't know you could take music from the dell dj BACK to the comp. I'd like to know this answer too. I bought this dell dj a while back, prefered my ipods. I was digging through my old pile of "****" and found some old toys. Now I'm trying to get them to work a little better since I went from Windows to Mac OS.

Assuming that you don't have windows vista, you can load the Dell DJ Explorer program that came with your DJ. It comes up as a regular looking window that should "see" your DJ when you plug it in. If it doesn't, where it says "not connected", right click and then click refresh. Sometimes it works better to plug in the DJ first, then load dj explorer. When it sees it, "not connected" should change to the name of your DJ. Double click that and it should then 'read' your dj, showing all the files on it. Then its just a tedious amount of copy and paste to another folder on your computer (like your My Music folder), and your music is restored to your computer. Take care, as DJ Explorer can also delete files from your DJ if you tell it to.
If you no longer have the DJ drivers and DJ Explorer and Musicmatch loaded on your computer, you can still download that stuff from the Dell site.
If you Do have Vista, try to find a friend with XP. Load the DJ explorer software on their computer, and pull your music off the dj to your friend's computer, then use a USB drive or something to move it to yours. Or better yet, upgrade your computer from VIsta to Xp (yes, I said upgrade - Vista is ****)

My computer does not recognize that my dell dj is plugged in when using yahoo music jukebox. When I try to transfer music from the computer to the dj, it tells me "no device connected".

FINALLY, after all that, it did in fact connect, and load the firmware successfully."

I can confirm this does work mine is now working perfectly!!

When it the zen is turned on it says firmware


Had the same problem and nearly went nuts trying to fix it. Here's what I did:

1. Uninstall all creative driver & creative software.
2. Uninstalled Windows Media Player 11 (Rolled back to WMP 10) and restarted PC.
3. Uninstalled Windows Media Player 11 Runtime and restarted PC.
4. Downloaded and Installed the latest free version of Winamp from http://www.winamp.com
5. Connected my A/C Power Cord to my Nomad Jukebox then connected my Nomad Jukebox via USB cable to the Computer.

The computer should then recognize the Nomad Jukebox as "Found New Hardware" then "MTP Device" and lastly "Your new hardware is installed and ready to use.

6. If you haven't already, go to the creative website and download the Creative Zen Xtra PlaysForSure Firmware 2.10.03 and save it to your computer.
7. Run the Firmware (Make sure Nomad Jukebox is connected) and at this point the Computer should recognize the Nomad Jukebox and begin the upgrade.

After your upgrade is complete, You can go ahead and re-download Windows Media Player 11 and it will recognize the Nomad Jukebox.Not sure what version of windows you have, but I have two computers, one with windows xp and the other has windows 7 and Im able to transfer music perfectly fine with Windows Media Player and RealPlayer on both computers. I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

How to record music from the computer with a SA2325 MP3 Player. Send me the steps to follow. Thanks


Hello,
Overview of online support for SA2325/02 ( GB ):
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=SA2325/02&slg=en&scy=GB

Link to the user manual:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/s/sa2325_02/sa2325_02_dfu_eng.pdf

Music files MP3 or WMA
Music transfer can be made seeing the player as a USB mass storage device in Windows Explorer, exploring the drives on "my computer": the player should show up as a drive letter with about 2 GB of memory.

The files must have the format and extension as shown on page 17 of the manual:
• Compression format: MP3 / mp3 (8-320 kbps
and VBR; Sample rate: 8, 11.025, 16,
22.050, 24, 32, 44.1, 48kHz),
WMA / wma (64-320kbps)
• ID3-tag support: Song title and artist name

Transferring songs from the computer to the player
After exploring the appropriate music files on the computer, the songs can be dragged and dropped to the memory of the player: read the blue
tips on page 11 of the manual.

Always disconnect the player safely after transfers, see point 3.4.1 of the manual on page 11.

-------------------

Audio CD converting to mp3 / wma format: RIPPING
When wanting to convert audio CD's to files that can be played on the player, you could use Windows Media Player 11 or MusicMatch Jukebox using the RIP utility.

  • For WMP 11: update your Windows operating system.
  • When using XP MusicMatch Jukebox 10 can be downloaded from next site:
http://www.soft32.com/Download/Free/MusicMatch_Jukebox/4-277-1.html
Right click on the download file under Soft32 Mirrors and select "Save target as..." Rember the download location for executing the file later, having the MusicMatch Jukebox installed.

Need more help ? Just post a comment.

Dell jukebox not working, want to transfer music


Mine has also ceased to charge. For awhile it would charge if I manipulated the charging plug in the socket but now doesn't respond to anything. It does make a nice paper weight now. I suspect mine has a bad connection in the charging circuit somewhere, perhaps just the socket has gone bad. Who knows? --- GB

First Gen Dell DJ 20 Gig "File Cannot Be Written" Transfer Issue


Yahoo jukebox was bought out by Rhapsody. I had the same problem and their only solution was for me to buy a Rhapsody subscription. I know this is not the solution you want to hear but that seems to be the only way to keep any music that was stored using the yahoo jukebox.

Dell DJ Gen 2 Won't connect


if your Dell DJ player is no longer recognized by the upgrade firmware even with the correct, original device driver installed, then you will need to install a windows 'MTP' driver by doing the following. Note that this applies to Windows XP only.

1. make sure you have the SP2 XP upgrade.

2. Install Windows Media Player 10 or roll it back to version 10 if you are using a later version. You can roll it back by going to 'Add or Remove programs' and uninstalling any WMP upgrade from the 'Change or Remove Programs' dialog window. Note: don't uninstall WMP enitrely from the 'Add/remove windows components' dialog.

3. Go get this file: fixup.zip Unzip it in a temporary directory and run the fixup.cmd by double-clicking in explorer or using the windows 'Run' command. Follow the instructions it prints in its DOS window about deleting the Dell device in the hardware manager.

4. plug your DJ player into the USB port. XP should now say 'Found MTP device' or something similar.

5. Get the Dell DJ 1.02 firmware from their support site appropriate for your player. Run the firmware upgrade. The software should detect your player this time.

A good reference for the Dell DJ stuff is here: gotzune.com

Note: I can't personally recommend the 'PlayForSure' firmware as I have not been successful upgrading to it. WMP 11 does not seem to work with the Dell DJ but WMP10 does and the device Sync function works just fine.

For almost ALL of the MP3 players out there that seem bricked due to a firmware upgrade failure or some other reason, they can be usually restored in a simlar way by installing a basic 'MTP' driver which allows windows to at least send a file to it, and by putting the player into a recovery mode as defined by the manufacturer.
