Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

My Diasonic 5300 should also play MP3. My users manual is useless. I can download and sync the files, but I can't get them to play. The machine reads "no files." What am I doing wrong?

I have a Diasonic DDR 5300 voice recorder. It is of wonderful quality, although the users manual is written so poorly as to be virtually useless in many regards. One of the things besides recording voices that the recorder is supposedly able to do is to download and store MP3 on an SD card, and then play them. I've been able to download the files to the SD card - at least it goes through the motions of recognizing the device and syncing the files to it - but I cannot figure out how to then play those files that supposedly have been downloaded to my device. I know that's not the primary fuction of this voice recorder, but as long as it comes with that ability, I'd like to see if I could make it work. I have followed the users guide as well as I could, but it still doesn't work. It reads "no file." And now I wonder, am I doing something wrong? Jim Fussell in Lenexa, KS

I have a question, how do you get your Diasonic 5300 voice recorder to read your Micro SD card. I could not do it, it shows ERR (error), and I tried a least 9 different Micro SD cards with different capacities.

You probably are trying to use MP3's that are use DRM - Digital Rights Management. You need to use any mp3's that do not contain DRM, such as an mp3 that you created yourself from ripping a CD.

Downloaded books from the library won't play


I was having the same problem when I used Overdrive Media Console to transfer my audiobook files to my Sansa. I updated the license and retransferred and even tried changing the USB settings on the mp2 player. What finally worked? Using Windows Media Player to sync the files instead. When I hooked up my Sansa I chose "use WMP to sync files" and then I dragged/dropped the audiobook files to the mediaplayer window. The audiobook now plays without any problems since WMP made sure the files have the latest subscription update code.

Will not work connected to telephone using adaptor


This recorder is designed to be used on analog phone lines with the included adapter. If you have a digital type phone system it will not work by plugging it into the wall jack. It may even damage the recorder.

To record YOUR calls you need the handset adapter which hooks in between the handset and your phone then patches into the recorder.

You can get one at SpyGadgets.com

MY SANSA WONT SYNC SONGS..


The songs are in the wrong format - they need to be stripped of their DRM license (illegal) or converted to mp3 format.  The best, most legal way to do this is to redownload the songs as an Mp3 file, or re-rip your CD's in Windows Media Player in Mp3 format.
these problems occur because the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not recognize. Every music file is in a certain format. The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC (iTunes), WAV, RA, etc.  In addition, every file format type is in a certain bitrate, size, etc.  By far the most common issue is that the music file contains a license or copyright (especially with WMA or AAC file formats).  Each Mp3 player only recognizes a certain number of these formats. Every Mp3 Player is different. You will have to check your Mp3 player’s product specifications (specs) or user’s manual to find out which formats your particular Mp3 player recognizes. When you try to download or sync the wrong file format, you will get one of the errors that I mentioned above.   If you want to know what file type you have, then you must find the location of the individual music file on your computer, right click the title of the song, and select the option “Properties” from the menu.
Mp3 player product documentation is not straightforward.  If a player supports only non-protected WMA files, it will merely say that it supports WMA – it will not tell which type of WMA it supports.  A player that supports DRM-protected WMA’s will usually indicate such on the box (usually with a Windows Plays For Sure logo – which is actually an ironic misnomer).  DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and it is a type of licensing system for WMA files.  It is used extensively by mp3 player music services such as Bearshare, LeapFrog, Napster, and others.  Not all DRM licenses are created equal – there are licenses with “play rights,” burn rights,” and “transfer rights.”  Play rights mean that you can only play the song on your PC – it will play fine on your computer, but it will not play in your mp3 player even though it appears to transfer.  Burn rights mean that the song can be burned to CD.  Transfer rights mean that the song can be transferred onto an mp3 player that supports DRM-protected files.  Then, there are unlimited licenses and limited licenses.  Limited licenses only allow you to play a song for a certain length of time. You would have to pay extra to continue using the song after that trial period is over – the time length ranges from a few days to several months or longer.

You can use the Media transfer software that comes with the player, or hilight and drag the files from Limewire into Windows Media Player, then open up the sync tab and make a list and hit sync. If you do this, make sure that the file is not being played on Limewire. You can ensure this by hitting the stop button on the Limewire Media Player, or playing a totally different song by double clicking the file in your Limewire Library.

The song format is most likely wrong:
read my "Tips and Tricks" on Song formats for Mp3 players: too long to repost here

Song Formats for Mp3 Players Explained
By Tha Mp3 Doctor
I have seen quite a few threads around Fixya in which the stated problem is that the Mp3 or Digital Audio Player will not load the songs; will appear to load the songs but will not actually play them in the Mp3 player once disconnected from computer; will skip the songs on the player, or show only “0:00” for file length; songs “disappear” all of a sudden (although this particular problem can be caused for many reasons not covered in this article); your store-bought/burned/ripped CD’s will not load into your Mp3 player; or get the error message “File Format Not Supported.” All of these problems occur because the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not recognize. Every music file is in a certain format. The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC, WAV, RA, etc. Each Mp3 player only recognizes a certain number of these formats. Every Mp3 Player is different. You will have to check your Mp3 player’s product specifications (specs) or user’s manual to find out which formats your particular Mp3 player recognizes. When you try to download or sync the wrong file format, you will get one of the errors that I mentioned above.

Or, it could be a "formatting" issue:
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
