It does for me but maybe you should try downloading a .mp3 converter.

I had a hard time trying to figure out why my mp3 player was reading fornat error! when it got to a certain song. I looked through my device and saw it had 5 folders and i hidden...what was this hidden thing...and where was it? I got the bright idea to open each of my files in this particular folder and I discovered that a song I had downloaded off of limewire had a hidden file on it and it directed me to a **** site when I tried to play it in windows media player. That is why the mp3 player read format error! when it would come to that song. So, try playing them in windows to see if you have any hidden **** attached to a file.

Limewire 5.0 sucks!


There are several things that I can see that might be driving your mp3 player haywire:
A) About 1/3 of Limewire songs contained some type of writing in the "Comments" section of the songs' ID3 Tags before version 5 - it may be up to 100% now, and your player obviously doesn't like it. This is going to be a real bear, but I would take one of the songs you just downloaded, open it in Windows Media Player, and right-click the song title within Windows Media Player. Select "Advanced Tag Editor," and delete any writing that appears in the "Comments" section of the ID3 tag. Then try transferring that song to your player and see if it plays correctly. If it does, repeat with all of the songs you just downloaded. It will take you forever.

B) If you use iTunes to transfer songs to your mp3 player, version 5 will not work with iTunes - it simply pastes a data file into iTunes which is not the actual song, so it may appear to transfer correctly, but in fact you have not transferred the actual song file. Use Windows Media Player to transfer instead.

C) The bitrate on songs in version 5 is higher - most mp3 players have a maximum bit rate that they can handle, and ver. 5 might exceed this upper limit. The solution would be to convert all of your mp3 files to a lower bit rate using free software such as Media Monkey.

Without dragging this explanation out any longer, I think your best solution would be to revert back to Ver. 4.1 or so.

Good luck!

Cant transfer limewire music from my computer to my mp3


You can't use Limewire directly to transfer songs to the Nextar. You will need to transfer the songs to the Nextar using Windows Media Player. Limewire puts the songs in a folder called "Limewire Downloads" usually. You will need to open Windows Media Player, run the mouse over the "Library" tab, and select "Add to Library." Once the window pops up you will need to add the folder called "Limewire Downloads" - it may take several minutes, but Windows Media Player is going to add all of those Limewire downloads to its own library. Then, you can use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs to the Nextar.

I play videos and a lot of my songs say error


Well if like me you use a website like limewire to get your songs, It may be that the files for the song or videos have errors in the files. Try downloading others and if it still doesnt work it may be the place your downloading songs from. If my solution doesnt work please try changing where you get your music from.. Im pretty sure you use something like limewire and if so it may be that its not suitable for your mp3, Try changing it

If it still doesnt work please reply and ill give you a longer description

You need to get ITunes, and then go to your limewire library, select the songs you want and press Enqueue and then press save file, save it to your documents and then go to Itunes, press file, import, then click the file you saved and it will automatically upload all the songs you saved, once your done plug your ipod into the computer and it will open itunes and download the songs to your IPOD

Use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs downloaded from Limewire to your Sansa. The first time you open Windows Media Player, it will search the "My Music" folder for songs - this may take a few minutes. Mkae sure you have Windows Media Player 10 or 11. You can either move or copy the Limewire songs to the folder called "My Music," or go into Windows Media Player and change Windows Media Player's configuration so that it can read the Limewire downloads folder.

If you changed the name of the song then thats the problem just simply change its name back to the original.

If thats not the problem then just delete the song or it will mess your sansa up and download it again for free with limewire

Copying songs from cds


It could be because there in WMA format and the ones you download from limewire are MP3.

Try getting the songs of the cd's again and using this converter to convert them and put them on your mp3 player and see if they work then.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way.

It's just a bit of practice you need really, first install limewire if you haven't already, http://www.limewire.com/download/version.php when yout on that link where it says Choose Your Platform: just choose your operating system, once you've installed limewire run it.

Now limewire should be running and ready to download songs, first on your top left of the screen where it says "Select Search Type", choose "Audio" now you've done that, enter the song you wish to download. when you've typed it hit the enter button on your keyboard then it will start to search for music, a list of songs will come up just simply double click on the song you want to download and it will begin to download.

When it's finished it will be automatically saved, now click on the "Libary" tab just above the "Audio" link you clicked earlier, now your on the libary in the top left of the screen click on "Saved Files" once then click "Explore which is located in the center of the screen next to the "Refresh" link.now your music will come up that's downloaded.

Plug your mp3 player in then go to "My Computer" then look for your mp3 player it's usually named as "Removable Disk", once you've found it double-click on it then it will open up, now simply copy and paste the music from the folder you just opened on limewire into the mp3 player you've just opened.

That's it keep doing that for each song you want on your mp3 player then remove your mp3 player from the computer then done.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way. Further problems just leave a comment on here and i will get back to you a.s.a.p.
