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.
Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Sylvania MP3 player.
Insert the other end of the same USB cable into the USB port on the computer.
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.
Open the file folder containing the MP3 or WMA digital music files you wish to download to your Sylvania MP3 player.
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.
yes...unplug from pc shut mp3 off for a minute...plug it to pc (did it come on turn it on)...please get into the habit of disconnecting any usb connection with the safety disconnect...(green icon in task bar when usb is connected)...since you already deleted all files (format it now) start fresh...now you are able to put your songs on it...but to disconnect do not....do not just unplug the usb
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!
No Music Files Problem solved
Plug the MP3 player to PC In Windows XP open Windows Explorer and navigate to one of the music files Try to play the file in Windows
If it fails, unplug player and once the player switches off carry out a reset
Reconnect player to PC and repeat the process described above You may need to repeat this several times until the music file plays in Windows.
After this format the player using Windows XP Select the removable hard drive, right click and select format Choose Fat32, enter a volume label (for example GMP33005) and select quick format
If formatting fails try several times
Once format is succesfull reload your music files using the software that came with the player Be careful not to exceed 2.5 or 2.6 GB (leave some free space as this might be needed for the player to work)
The player should now play the music files correctly
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.
