I try to download songs, but AutoPlay keeps popping up.
I plug the USB cable in the computer, and it AutoPlay pops up; which it usually does when you put something in the USB port, or put a CD in. But it keeps popping up and closing like the cable is being plugged in then unplugged...Someone help, PLEASE!!

Re: I try to download songs, but AutoPlay keeps popping...
Test another USB port on your computer, and see if you get the same result. If you get the same result, the USB cable may be faulty.
Here is a test you can do to see if the problem really is the USB cable, or if it is something else: Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear: Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off.Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab.Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions. After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again. -Tha Mp3 Doctor

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.

Well once you put the songs from your cd onto your computer place them in a folder in my documents and name it music. Plug in your mp3 player and go into your my computer folder and open your mp3 player as a folder. Or if you have autoplay on when it loads itself and pops up on the screen click where it says open items as a folder. Once you have it open into a folder just go into your my documents and slide the music folder over into the mp3 folder. That should work because thats how I do mine I dont like using the disc way because the disc is way to confusing.
1. Connect your iPod to the computer. You cannot delete files from the iPod directly, and must use the iTunes interface to add and remove content from the iPod. Connect the device to the computer by plugging the long end of the sync cable (which came bundled with your iPod) into the data port of the iPod and then plugging the USB side into your computer.
2. Launch iTunes. Once you have plugged in your iPod, launch the iTunes program. You may need to wait a few moments while the program locates your iPod. You will know that your iPod has been located because a small icon that looks like your iPod will pop up on the left side of the iTunes program.
3. Click on your iPod to show the Device menu and then scroll over to the center pane where the music is. Find the song(s) you wish to delete. Left-click on the song (or album) you want to delete and then right-click.
4. Select "Remove" from the submenu. A message will pop up asking if you only want to remove it from the iPod or whether you want to remove it from the iPod and iTunes. If you want to keep a copy of the file(s) on your computer, select the option that removes the file only from your iPod. Once the file has been removed, go back to the iPod menu and select "Sync" from the center pane. This will remove the song from your iPod.
these cheaper mp3 players dont usually need software to upload songs. normally all you have to do is plug your player into an ACTIVE USB connection. windows should let you know that there is a removable storage device connected depending on your autoplay settings when you connect your player to your computer. a box MIGHT pop up and prompt you to either play files or open a folder etc. if it doesn't look in the bottom right and corner of your screen you should see a safely remove hardware icon there by the time/clock. if you dont the your mp3 play is not being recognized and you might have to try another USB slot. you can also try to go to my computer and check to see if your device is listed as a drive. you should see it listed as removable disc (Drive letter). you double click of the drive letter to open your device folder then you just simply drag and drop the music you want to hear in that folder. depending on how new your computer is and how fast your USB connection each file could take anywhere from 1 second - 2 minutes so be patient.
Connecting your mp3 player to your computer
Connect one end of the USB cable to your computer’s USB Port. Then connect the smaller end of the USB cable to your MP3 players USB Port. Turn the unit on. In MS Windows a new icon will appear in “My Computer”. “Removable Disk” will appear in my computer. Windows recognizes it as a removable disk.
Transferring Files and Folders
1. Find files or folders you wish to transfer. 2. Select and highlight 3. Use Copy command 4. Go to “My Computer” 5. Locate and open “Removable Disk” 6. Once opened, paste file to “Removable Disk” folder.

Now to download from cds you need to record the cds to the computer. I would use something like itunes to build a song libary.
I do mine through Windows Media Player
1)Plug in Sansa
2)Open up Windows Media Player and wait for the Sansa e250 icon to show up under the library. First time, might say 'What device is this' or 'Autoplay'-for autoplay,you click 'sync media files to Sansa e250 using WIndows Media Player'
3)When library shows, click 'Sync' if it is not already there.
4)Just simply click and drag the songs you want from the computer library to the list pane on the side.
5)Once your done, click 'Sart sync'
2)Wait for the icon under Library in WIndows Media Player
3)Go to Songs under Sansa e250
4)Right click desired songs and choose Delete. You only want to delete from Sansa e250-nothing else
There is quite possibly a problem with the USB cable or the USB port on the computer, but try this shortcut force to force the computer to recognize the Mp3 player: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard
Yeah, Panasonic's software support for this model is awful - no firmware update, no software at all on website.
