Well, try copying them to a folder on your computer. Also, make sure that the files are not proteced with DRM. If these fail, open iTunes. Select all of the MP3 files and drag them into your library. That should fix it.

Marantz PMD671 recorder - download problem

I need to know what model mac you have. This would help. Also what operating system you are using. Older macs may not be compatible unless you update the system. The latest macs with the intel chip work fine with this. Once quick solution is to update your software to the latest versions by going to your apple with your mouse in the upper left corner of your screen and then clicking it. Scroll down to the title software update. click that and then click update now. Check the boxes of all you want to update and then hit enter. *Note: you must be connected to the internet in order to make these updates. I would suggest being connected something faster than dial up.
After you have done your updates, try to reconnect the Marantz. Remeber to connect it first then turn it on.
Another solution is to format the card on your mac first by using a card reader and the program Disk Utilities located in your utilities folder. It is important to choose the Fat 32 format (You will see this in your pull down menu). Note: This will erase everything on your card.
If you have a card reader, you can always take the card out of the recorder and try to read it that way as there may be a communication issue with the mac and the recorder, but if it can be read on the PC and not the mac, I doubt that is the issue.

I have the Samsung SCH-R500 cellphone. Using Windows Media Player on my laptop, I downloaded in MP3 format from a music CD onto an SD microchip portable device (yes, I did format the chip beforehand). ...

The instructions which came with my phone state that the card must be formatted using the phone... done under Tools > Mass Storage. My instructions also state that music transfer is only possible using bluetooth or the USB cable. However, I found this to be untrue. After formatting the card using the phone, I placed the card in my computer and created a folder on the card called my_music. Placing mp3s in this folder seems to add them to my phone's playlist.

Loading mp3 files to garmin nuvi 350

The device is not recognizing the file name. The Garmin GPS will only recognize MP3 files. Ipod (MP4) and other media files will not play. Converting the files to the MP3 format will correct the problem.

Can see music on memory card

A few suggestions (Not in any particular order)

Format the SD card in the PC, Make sure the songs are in MP3 format, (In XP use windows audio converter to change if needed), make sure the MP3 files have a bit rate of 128 kbps or less. Make sure the phone is set to 'data connection' not 'memory
card connection' because the phone cant see the files, connect the SD memory card to the PC, use 'my computer' to view folders, you should have an 'audio folder' if your MP3's are contained in folders try removing each MP3 file from its folder and place directly into audio folder (cut & paste) delete the empty folders, you can organise any playlist's on the phone. If possible download WMP11 & Moto multimedia Plug-in, (makes loading a bit easier). Chris

Transferring MP3 files from PC "C" drive "My Music" folder to SD card

you may want to try downloading only those that didn't download the first time. Sometimes when you try to download a large file (all the songs) it causes the "error message" you talk about. You may want to delete files already downloaded, or save the files downloaded to a different file folder, and try the download again.
