First you want to make sure your adding the correct file format MP3, perhaps WMA if it supports it.

Plug it in and go to my computer, it should show up as an extra drive open it and drag your music files into it. That should work.

    I'm sorry you think I was treating you like a kid even tho I was not.This is a free service, I do not appreciate giving advice and being talked to in such a way. Some ppl do forget basic things so one should always start with the basics.
    If the device is saying no files found, then obviously you messed up on a small problem because the music seems to not be there. SO again either incorrect format or you need to reread the manual.

Just bought player dont no how to set it up on computer so i can put my msic on it

Hi MsRenee,

What type of music player have you bought? I'm assuming it's an MP3 player of some kind that attaches to the computer using a USB cable.

If it's Apple-based (iTouch/Phone/Pod), files are synchronised using iTunes installed on your PC.

If it's another product, you can simply attach the MP3 player, browse through the folders as if it were a USb drives and copy/paste the music into the appropriate folders. Some other players have their own applications/software to do so.

Was it a second-hand purchase without a manual? More details are needed so we can help you.

How to put msic on it

Install the Windows driver included in the product package before connecting your Sylvania MP3 player. Insert the included driver CD into your CD-ROM drive and run the setup file if it does not load automatically. This driver makes sure your computer can recognize and operate the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 2 Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 3 Insert the other end of the same USB cable into the USB port on the computer.
  • 4 Wait for the computer to recognize the Sylvania MP3 player as a connected device. Open your file manager or browser to locate the Sylvania MP3 player as a drive or connected device if your computer does not prompt you automatically.
  • 5 Open the file folder containing the MP3 or WMA digital music files you wish to download to your Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 6 Drag and drop the file or folder icons of your desired digital music onto the Sylvania MP3 player device icon. Drag and drop the digital music into open folders within the Sylvania MP3 player device icon as well.

    You turn it on and it says no files but there is 195 songs on it and it says no files

    wire it up to pc or laptop, please
    (using usb 2.0 port)
    check if they are all mp3's,
    if yes, copy files to pc-harddrive,
    erase the music from your player.
    recopy, try to play files again : still same prob?

    then: ATTENTION: format! the player, only if there is no other data on it, recopy the mp3's from pc to player
    (this time don't put them in folders, just the 195 of them on the player's memory device, make sure you still have the copies on pc)

    unplug, insert fresh battery and hit the play button!

    hope you're lucky this time

    I have an Ipod Classic ( the newest version). It hasn't given me any problems until I let my friend use my Itunes to put msic on his new Ipod shuffle. Worked fine for him but now my computer wont recognize...

    Try unplugging and plugging it back in, this happens to every ipod user once in a while. Try plugging it in a different USB port. Let me know how it goes.

    Req Help - - Olympus WS 320 M - Won't play some MP3 files

    I found the problem, I believe. Check out page 80 of the user manual. I formatted the unit and ever after it would not play mp3s, even those I had previously used successfully. It no longer plays mp3s after formatting. I have heard that the limitation is on mp3’s at lower bitrates than 128k. Mine are all lectures at 56kbps. My solution is to recode my lectures from 56k mp3 to 64k WMA and it works. I understand that you can also recode to 128k mp3 but in my case this would make the files much larger.
    I hope this helps.
