Recently i switched my Mp3 player on to find that all my music had just disappeared. When i plug it into my computer though, all the folders with my music appear as if they exist on the Mp3 player, but when disconnected are not there! The Mp3 player acknowledges that a certain amount of GB have been used, but where is my music then?

Re: Music has disappeared.
One of the pesky features of windows Media Player is that if you delete the song/playlist from the computer's harddrive, and then resync your device to that same computer, then oftentimes the song/playlist disappears. Reacquire the song/playlist, and then try resyncing to the goGear again.

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.

Connect your MP3 player to your computer using your USB cable. Switch your MP3 player to the MTP mode by pressing the power button located on the top of your player. When the USB symbol disappears your MP3 player is in the MTP mode.

Click on 'Start'.
Double Click on the 'GPX MTP Device' icon.
Double Click on 'Removable Storage'. Minimize your 'Removable Storage' window.
Open your 'My Music' folder by again clicking on 'Start' and then click on your 'My Music' folder. Choose an album or individual songs from this folder.

Try switching your mp3 player on whilst plugged into your computer. Many mp3 players need that done. When you switch it on you'll get the option to connect to your computer. Verify that then away you go. Hope this helped
whenever i turn on my sansa m230 mp3 player, it displays the message, "not enough space for music DB, please free 8mb." And so i plug it into my friends computer and when i open the music folder on the device, its empty, even though it says that there is quite a bit of space used up. Do you have any answers?.
Make sure the DRM license on the music files has not recently expired. If the music service subscription from which they came from has expired, the songs will not be usuable until you renew the subscription - this is the cold new reality of the Mp3 world.
