Can you keep player plugged into usb charger while playing music files indefinatly or will it over charge and possibly cause damage? im shopping around and am not even shure it will play while pluged in to...

You can keep the Sansa plugged in without fear of overcharging. The Sansa will play while it is connected to a USB port that is supplying only power, such as a USB charger operating off a car cigarette lighter. It will not play while connected to a computer.

I charged my swimP3 but it won't turn on when disconnected from the computer.

The Swimp3 Player does need to be charged for at least 3 hours for the best experience. Here are some tips that could help solve your problem:

Problem: The player doesn't turn on.

Suggestion: Charge the battery in the player for at least three hours, this will allow it to fully charge. You can charge it by plugging it into the USB port on your computer or by using a USB wall charger (sold separately). If you do choose to use a computer to charge it, be sure your computer is turned on. If there is no power to the computer, then no power is going to the USB port to charge the Swimp3 player.

Additional Tip: The charging answers are in the Green Indicator Light.

If the green light is flashing off and on, then your SwiMP3 player is charging

If the light is solid green, the SwiMP3 player is fully charged

If you have no green light - then it is not receiving a charge - check the connection, make sure its plugged in properly, or check to see that there is power from the computer or USB wall charger.

Problem: I have charged my player, the light is solid green, but no music plays.

Suggestion 1: Have you loaded music onto the player? Try adding a few mp3 or wma files and test it again.

Suggestion 2: If the power is on, you loaded music, clicked the Play button and no music comes out, press and hold the RESET button for 4 seconds. It's kind of like rebooting your computer when it crashes. Many times a simple reset clears up any challenges.

If that doesn't work, then it could be the

* volume

* incompatible files or

* folders

Volume: On some units the factory volume setting is very low.

Solution: Try turning up the volume by pressing and holding the "+" PLUS button. If you click the "+" button it changes the song, pressing and holding the button will actually control the volume. And if its too loud, press and hold the "-" MINUS button to bring the volume back down.

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 have a sylvania mp3 player 4gb and it wont let me put music on it. when i plug in the usb cord it doesnt even show up on the!!!

First, try another USB cable. Cheap players often come with broken cords. If it still won't work send it back, it's broken.

I have an Oakley Thump but have been able to access music on it.

Have you tried to drag individual music files to your Thump?  ITumes needs to be set to import in MP3 mode so that the music exports in MP3 mode.  My original Thumps will not play AAC format music files. Also, do your Thumps fully charge using the wall charger?  Hope this helps.

As long as you have the USB 2.0 type cable, and the software loaded, you can charge the ZEN V on your computer. Be sure to load the software first. It will take several hours to charge fully the first time. While it is charging you can add music. When you see the plug icon in the upper right corner, it is fully charged. Be sure you are not adding music while you disconnect. Otherwise, just pull the plug and the ZEN should play for up to 12 hours.

I cannot charge it (USB car charger) and listen to the music at the same time

don't think it's possible. -when you charge and play via your laptop, the player is acting as a USB key and the laptop is doing the playing. -when you charge it via your in-car port you do not have a 2nd device on which to play tunes. it's either charge or play i'm afraid
