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.

My mp3 says file format error when I try to listen to the music.

It's possible that the file type of the music file(s) you are trying to listen to are not a supported format of your mp3 player. Your player only supports MP3 and WMA audio formats. You should check the music files you are tying to play to confirm they are of a compatible format.

I i have a craig 2 gb mp3 and i can download music and i can open my mp3 file and listen to it on my windows media player but when i go to listen to it on my mp3 its says ist empty

Hi there,

Well problem seems in the file format of the mp3 player, please let me know in which file format do you copy the songs into your mp3 player? make sure the file format is supported by your mp3 player. (when you play these files in windows media player it played because window media player played all(maximum) file formats.)
post further comments for more information....

Good Luck!!

Connect the player to your PC.

Click the "synchronize" button, to "push" the licenses from your PC "down" to your player.

Can you play at least one music from your mp3 player? If yes, the file that you're trying to play when this message appears may be corrupted. Try having another copy of the music that you want to play on your mp3 player. If you can't play any music that you transferred, possible causes could be :

1. Your mp3 player was reformatted to another file system that is unrecognized by the mp3 player.

2. The flash memory of your mp3 player was bad
3. The songs that you're trying to transfer is not known by the player ( file types other than .mp3)

File format not supported

Try downloading the songs into another simliar MP3. If it does not work means that the file format is really not supported. What you can do is to Google Free MP3 convertor.
