Re: Installed Mp3 but cannot play it in my GO Gear
1) If the songs are in WMA instead of Mp3 format, they may have DRM-encryption on them that prevents them from being played in the new GoGears (the older GoGear's supported DRM, so some of the newer ones are actually a step backwards). Make sure the format is Mp3.
2) Some services, such as Spiral Frog, have a DRM-protection system that only allows transfer to certain types of mp3 players. Other services give you play rights (plays fine on computer), but not transfer rights (ability to transfer to an mp3 player and play correctly). Once again, DRM-protection is the issue.
3) If the format is Mp3, then the sampling rate or bit rate could be wrong. You can use a free program like Media Monkey to downconvert the songs to a lower sampling rate. The technical specs on the acceptable bit rates and samplign rates are printed on the product info sheet and in the user manual.
4) The songs could be on iTunes, which converts songs to protected AAC format - which are incompatible with the GoGear.
The solution to all your problems is to only use songs in mp3 format that are in the correct bitr rate and sampling rate.

Did you transfer MP3 files, i.e files with a .mp3 extension after the name, e.g. StarSpangledBanner.mp3 ? From the error messages you are getting, it looks to me that the files you transferred are not MP3 files. For example, when you press Play, one or more files are highlighted and the player tries to play the first (or the only one) highlighted, but it can't because it is in a format that is not supported, i.e. not MP3. When you click Music, the player starts looking for all the MP3 files that you have on the player or on an external memory card. It cannot find any, hence the 'empty disv/card' error message.
This player cannot play mp4 files only mp3 files. When the files are copied to the MP3 player the computer can play the mp4 files from the MP3 player but when you play these mp4 files straight from the MP3 Go Gear it cannot see or play these files.
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. 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 music files to mp3 file format:- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files
the best way to solve this is by formatting your mp3 player. at first format your mp3 player, then transfer few songs from some other drive in "my computer", not from my documents. then your mp3 player should work.
The songs that you transferred have a DRM license on them that does not have transfer rights (i.e.: the songs you downloaded can be played on a computer, but cannot be transferred to an mp3 player). The GoGear is giving you this message in hopes that you will Sync it with Windows Media Player and acquire the said transfer rights.
If you download songs that are in true mp3 format, you will not have this problem. Also, if you choose a music service that allows mp3 transfer at your subscription levwel, and continue to pay for that subscription every month, it will also clear your problem.
The songs ripped from CD are not in the right format. In Windows Media Player, highlight the Rip tab, click the black arrow under the Rip tab, select Rip Options --> Format --> Mp3. Now, re-rip the songs. Before you transfer these tracks to the player, make sure you delete the tracks that are on the mp3 player now, or else Windows Media Player wil ltell you that the tracks are already there. Now, transfer the newly-ripped Mp3 tracks to your Sansa. Should be good to go.
Try formatting the device again using its built-in formatting features.
(WARNING: There is no way you can retrieve your data. Since it has already been formatted, it's assumed that you have backup.)
In your Sony NW-E405 MP3 Player:
1. Press and hold the SEARCH/ MENU button
2. Go to ADVANCED MENU (press the Play/ Stop button)
3. Select FORMAT (press Play/ Stop button)
4. From the opt "Format OK?" select OK (press the Play/ Stop button)
5. Once finished, you can Cancel out.
After these steps, your device should screen out "No Data." From there, you can re-transfer your files.
if you've used wmp to rip and encode the cd to the wma file standard,
the ipod won't play them. the ipod doesn't support wma or ogg vorbis
(and doesn't support the pro part of mp3 pro) you need to encode your
files to either mp3 or aac (or leave them as wav files, though these
are very large) for the ipod to play them. this may be causing the mmjb
check out the software compendium on info on alternatives to rip, encode and transfer to the ipod.
