My Harley MP3 player.

It's new, I downloaded a couple hours of music. But, when I turn the HA90 on...nothing plays, nothing. Do I need to change something on the card?

Re: My Harley MP3 player.

It has already been said that the Harley Road Tech MP3 player will not read song from a folder, I was having no problem with it reading up to a 512 mb disk, however it would not read 1gb or 2gb disk because for some strange reason the songs were put on the disk as a folder, so I figured this out, rip your soundtracks to the mp3 format using the windows media player program, then sychronize them to the disk, no click on start on your computer, then my computer, then with the disk plugged into the usb port you will see that icon, storage device F , dbl click on that and it will open a window and show a folder, dbl click on that anf it will open all the soundtracks, now go to edit in your task bar and then to select all, this will highlight all soundtracks, now go to file and then send to and send those soundtracks to the F storage device, after you do that then delete the folder at the top and your MP3 player will now play the songs

Songs should be in MP3 format and in root directory - no folders change internal switch from B to A for more volume (signal) output search internet for MP3 Gain freeware - it will allow you to increase song db levels to say 98 for "louder" output

The mp3 only plays about 40 songs on a 2 gb card. Plus i drag music files over only some download from ITunes

The reason only some songs are playing is because the other songs aren't in a format that it recognizes. Make sure all the songs are in mp3 format, if they're not you can get programs that will convert any song into mp3. If you need more help let me know =)

I have a road tech ha90 digital music player . inserting a sd card with mp3 and wma format music . i get a erro message.

First, many SD storage music players do not support HCSD. Is the SD card bigger than 2gig? This could be the problem. Try a smaller SD card.

Can't get it to recognize music we added on a new scan disk

All you need is a SD disc usb holder to transfer files from your windows Media player onto it. Use the Windows converter to format your songs to mp3. Just right click on the songs or albums in your library and then select Send to > Windows Audio Converter > A window will pop up that has the songs selected ready to convert, but you need to first use the browse icon to make sure the MP3 SD disc is the output folder you are sending the music to. Just see whether the disc holder is plugged into the g or h drive, then once that has been done you can start the conversion. Once that is done, you should be able to play the music back on your HD Road Tech mp3 palyer. ONe last point, make sure to uncheck 'add my converted files to my library' as that will double up the same music selection in your library. Remember you are just wanting to copy the mp3 files to the external SD disc for your player not make mp3 files for your pc media player. Hope this helps.

I own the player on my 2004 HD Softail Deuce. I have a catalog of various sizes of sd cards from my original 64mb up to 2gb. The problem you are having could be that you have the music in WMI instaed of having converted it to the mp3 format with your windows player. Be sure to use the lowest quality when converting to the mp3 as you will not notice the difference in the playback. Also do not be surprised that you cannot get what you think on a 2 gig sd card. One of my 2 gig cards has the entire Led Zeppelin studio catalog including some various Robert Plant solo songs from his various albums. I buy my sd cards from Microcenter here in Ohio for around $7.00 each. The local wal-marts are making a killing with 512mb for around $15.00 each, so shop around for the cards you need.

The WMA files are probably copyright protected, and this device was not set up to read them. I would try converting them all ot Mp3 format - you will probably have better luck. Here's the official Harley page that I found:
Here's the best bet - there are pdf instructions for upgrading the software and a few other functions, but no user's manual for it per se:!-608879135!hdijunapppr08.ihd.hd!7005!8005&HDCWPSession=43nTLxPTw2cyWmlLHvR8BY0pqGFrtc8n5f6GQL4PvhTDBmHHhWQP!1924091048!-135590298

Road Tech? HA90 MP3/WMA? Digital Music Player

My husband hooked one up with Kuryakyn speakers (amplified). BUT - we CANNOT get the music on the card...Windows seems to not like the idea of synch-ing without folders and the MP3 player cannot read folders... I'm pulling my hair out over this!!!!
