My GeneralPlus MSDC MP3 player shows to have music on the sd card but the player won't play

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :-

When I load some mp3 files onto my FlashTrax, they playback fine. Others don't. It's as if the FlashTrax doesn't recognize that they're there. What might be the problem?


OK, i would firstly advice you to make sure that all the audio files you copy to the unit is actually .mp3 format. If the files is not in .mp3 format, the unit will sometimes give you this error message.

Kind regards

Err Pttrn File issue

Vista shouldn't prevent you from transfering data to a TASCAM Portastudio. The instruction manual shows how to connect the Portastudio to a computer using a cable. The instruction manual can be found on the internet and is called ps5_ref.pdf

If you have a CF card reader you can put the card in that and it will show up in vista as removeable disk. You then use Explorer (windows file Explorer, not the browser Explorer - who knows what fool at Microsoft gave the same name to two different programs) as normal to move the files FXPATCH.PKT, PATTERN.001, and SYSINFO.PKT onto the CF card. You use the same method to transfer your recordings and MP3 files from the Portastudio to the computer if you want to. Just remember to stick to the 8.3 naming convention - that's up to eight letters, a full stop, and three letter extension such as .MP3

Hard Drive to CF Card conversion

Sadly the Micro Drive based newer players/mini external HDD's Etc. use a different kind of Micro Drive to a standard CF Micro Drive. 
This comes as a result of people buying Zen Micro's and striping them as a cheap way to obtain a Micro Drive.
Only Micro Drives and CF cards designed to be installed at point of manufacture will work in a device like this, a standard CF card or off the shelf Micro Drive will not.
