MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player.For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable tothe MP3 player and the computer. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.Click on this link for instruction on converting musicfiles to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files
You will need to ensure that you have 'linked' your mp3 player to your computer which would have required you to use an install disc so that your computer would recognise the new hardware. However some computer operating systems will automatically recognise what has been plugged into them via the USB port. You may also need to look at the files you are trying to download to your mp3 player. It might not be able to download them as your mp3 and the files that your are trying to download may not be the same format.
Assuming you have connected your mp3 player to your computer correctly, open the folder marked 'My Computer' on your desktop.
You should see your mp3 player listed as a connected device, click on that to open a browser window
keep the browser window open and look to see where music is stored. There is normally a sample track like Bach.mp3 as a test track.
If you see this file then leave that window open.
Then open the folder on your computer that contains your music files
Select one track at random, then click and hold with your mouse and drag it to the open music folder on your mp3 player (as described earlier). Then drop your music file there by releasing your hold on your mouse. One of two things will happen. You will either see the file copying on to the mp3's music folder or a warning may come up and tell you that this file is not recognised to play on your device.
If your file that you want to have on your mp3 player is not an mp3 file, then don't worry, these can be changed on the internet to an mp3 file so it will play on your mp3 player. Look for Zamzar or in your net web browser put in the search box 'Free file conversion' and that will bring you up lists of sites that will convert your files to the required format you will need.
I cannot be any more specific as I would need more information from you in order to help you more fully but hopefully the above will solve your problem, if not get in touch.
Try turning on your mp3 player while plugged into your computer. It should come up on your mp3 and ask if you want to connect to your computer or printer. Choose computer, then your computer should be able to recognise your mp3 device. Hope this helped.
no, I don't think it will delete all your data... I have one like that... and it never deleted any files when I reset it... But hopefully, it will work since this happens to me too... just not in the USB thing. Reset, check the device, ok? then you're ready to go!
try messing with the usb settings on the mp3 player in settings/ system settings/ USB mode/ for a newer PC try MSC for an Older PC or mac try Mtp and if that dosen't work try auto detect just mess around with it fir a while
