Re: want to copy .wma files back to pc

I have the greatest of news for all in this thread
If you download the latest firmware from this website
After you have done so your best move is to open your Iriver music manager and from there click on the button that says firmware upgrade after that it is as simple as clicking the firmware file that you have just downloaded.
Follow the onscreen instructions and you will be able to transfer to from your player no sweat.
Im glad to help

I have an Alba MP2200BUK although I can't listen to songs. The light is coming on, although no sound is produced.

I had the same problem. It has something to do with where the original file is ? In explorer i can see all my music in my music folder but you can't copy them all - it must have been how the music was originally copied on to the hard drive. Not sure what the solution is other than to try copying the original back on to your hard drive and double check how and where it does it. I also found that this really only applied to the WMA files that i had and not the MP3 files but that could be by pure chance ?

SwiMP3 (128 MB) MP3 Player: I have the original first version of the Swimp3 pl...

This could actually be an easy fix. If you have any files on the player that are not WMA or MP3 files, or that you've stored your music in folders - either way it could simply stop the drive from playing.

Incompatible Music Files: If you have loaded a music file that is not compatible, it simply won't play. The SwiMP3 player works with mp3 or wma files, but not aac (like from iTunes).

Solution: Remove the incompatible files. Convert your other music files to mp3 or wma, and if you are importing your songs direct from itunes, you'll need to convert them to mp3s first.

Incompatible NON-Music Files: An MP3 player is similar to a Thumb Drive or Flash Drive because it can hold any kind of file that will fit in the drive's capacity. However, if you have loaded an incompatible file - including JPEGs, Cover Art, Word Docs, anything that is not an MP3 or WMA file, the player simply can't translate it into music.

Solution: Remove the incompatible files, leaving only your mp3 or wma files in your root directory.

Folders: The mp3 player is not able to open folders and play music files stored inside, to the Swimp3 player the folder is simply an un-playable file.

Solution: Open the folders, move or copy the music files into the root directory (remember, mp3 or wma - not aac), then delete the folders.

I hope you find this helpful.

Music downloaded as WMA from PC to MP3tech MP3S4 wont play

Your player should support both MP3 and WMA files. What happens when you try to play an MP3 instead? Have you tried other bit-rates? Those you are trying may be too high or low.

I copy songs into my mp3 audio player

check the type of file format, it will say .wma, mp3, mp4, avi, some players can only play .wma, or .mp3 i pods use mp4, or something, if not an ipod than convert the music to .mp3 or .wma and re load into the mp3 player. are you using a sansa? in the picture above, if so then you can just click the mouse on the the song hold it and drag and drop the song into the player folder. here try this hook your player to your pc, open up my computer, select the drive that idetifies your player, double click, find a file that says audio or music open it that is the directory folder for the music to play from in your player, now keep that open, and open up the folder where you have stored the music in you pc and select whatever song you want, click and hold the mouse button on the song drag the song over to the player folder and let go of the mouse button within seconds it should appear, but like I said before make sure .wma or .mp3 is at the end of the song title, like this
All along the watchtower.wma or Sweet emotion.mp3 , it also helps to adjust the windows smaller to fit them both on the screen that way you can just drag and drop faster. I hope thiis helps.

I have a sylvania mp3 player i wanna put music on it how do i do that have no instructions for it model number is smpk8854b if that helps

Usually when the player is connected to a PC, it will automatically recognize the unit as a generic external storage device (you should get a "hardware connected" message). If your computer does not automatically open a window that will allow you to have access to the units' internal memory, you can access it through "My Computer" (it should be recognized as a drive - e.g. E:, F:, etc.). After that, putting music on the mp3 player is a matter of copy and pasting the files from the computer's hard drive to the players' memory. Just make sure the music is in the mp3 or wma format before copying it.

Won't paly WMA files that I bought online!

I remember reading somewhere that if you upgrade your firmware of your H340 from US to international to get video you lose the ability to play DRM music. I from this I would that the international version can't play the copy protected files. I am not sure of the legalities in your location, but you may be able to work around the copy protection. Maybe a google search would give you some hints.

My mp3 Doesn't play some files

Your Muro is an Mp3 player. do you have reason to think it can play Wma's? you can get several converters here, but i can't tell you if any of them are for free. this one should be for free, but you'll need to check and see if it works for you -
