Fedora recognized the device, but music files not shown
Under normal circumstances, when you open up the music player, there is another drive that you open, which then shows the folders named playlist, songs, etc. In this case, however, the only thing that is shown are two files named "AUDIBLE" and "CONFIG", and a couple xml documents containing some kind of hash. Is there some sort of driver I need to download in order to view the files?

Install the Windows driver included in the product package
before connecting your Sylvania MP3 player. Insert the included driver
CD into your CD-ROM drive and run the setup file if it does not load
automatically. This driver makes sure your computer can recognize and operate the Sylvania MP3 player.
Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Sylvania MP3 player.
Insert the other end of the same USB cable into the USB port on the computer.
Wait for the computer to recognize the Sylvania MP3 player as
a connected device. Open your file manager or browser to locate the
Sylvania MP3 player as a drive or connected device if your computer does
not prompt you automatically.
Open the file folder containing the MP3 or WMA digital music files you wish to download to your Sylvania MP3 player.
Drag and drop the file or folder icons of your desired
digital music onto the Sylvania MP3 player device icon. Drag and drop
the digital music into open folders within the Sylvania MP3 player
device icon as well.
Most times, people often make the mistake of copying music files direct to the memory of the ipod device. If you do this, you might be able to detect the songs but your ipod will not play the songs as it may not recognize their format. For you to copy music files to your ipod, you would need to download the itunes program and install it to your computer. With this installed, you can connect your ipod to your computer and open itunes. It would be displayed under your itunes program and you can then copy your music files using itunes by dragging them and dropping them on the name of your ipod as it is shown on the left hand side of the itunes program. If after doing this, you still have the same problem, you can use your itunes to format the ipod and put the songs afresh. Hope this helps you? Please comment for more information
If you are trying to find music online to download, so that you can put them on your mp3 player then you can use company's such as Napster. I can not condone the use of Illegal music sites.
If you are wanting to put the music you already have onto the mp3 player sansa does not give out a special program to do so.
You can use windows media player or a program called winamp (google it if youd like) and you can open them, plug in your mp3 player and it will find the device. You can then drag and drop your music files onto the device as shown on the program.
Your second option is simply opening My Computer, plug in your mp3 player and when windows finds it a new drive will show up on your My Computer screen. This is your mp3 device. You can drag and drop your music files to this drive and it will transfer them to your mp3 player.
If you have any further question's or comment's feel free to post them and I will be of further assistance. Have a good day and thank you for choosing Fixya!
You do not need any special software. Just a USB cable that will fit your device.
Connect device to PC
A box should open on PC asking something like "what do you want do do?" Select the option that opens folder to view files. When folder opens, leave it open and move to step 4.
If a box does not appear in step 2: click "My Computer" or "Computer" on Vista systems, then look for a device with a drive letter (usually F: or G: or H:). This represents your mp3 player connected to your system and you can access it from here. Click it and it will open a file on your mp3 player for you to put music on.
Open the folder on your computer that contains the music files you want to put on your mp3 player. These files are usually found in you "My Music" folder.
Hold the Ctrl button and highlight all the music files you want on your mp3 player. When all are selected, release the Ctrl button, right click one of the highlighted files, and select "copy"
go back to the folder for your music player and right click an empty area of the folder where the files would be shown, and select "paste."
Look in your tray (the little icon area near your computer's clock) and see if there is a little icon that says "safely remove hardware" when you hover the cursor over it. If this is present, then click it and select the option to safely remove the device with the drive letter your music player was listed as. If you don't know the drive letter, then follow the first part of step 3 to find out what it is.
First make sure you have the right drivers installed, you're hearing the "new device connected" sound when you plug it in, it's listed as recognized under device manager, and the only problem seems to be that iriver music manager isn't recognizing it.
If everything is working except for the music manager, then try holding down the "fast-forward" button at the same time that you connect the cable to the iriver. You probably want to keep iriver music manager loaded, to see if it's recognizing the player while you test this; try attaching/detaching the device several times, while you're holding down fast-forward and while you aren't, to see if that's enough to fix your problem.
I have no idea why it works when it does, it's an ugly kludge, but it seemed to fix the problem for me, and saved me from having to buy an entirely new flash mp3 player to replace this ancient one.
First - reset the player by using a paperclip, toothpick, etc and pressing it into the pinhole. Try doing this while the GoGear is "On" - but this may be difficult under the circumstances. Try connecting your GoGear to the computer after that, and see if Windows Media recognizes the player.
If that fails, conenct your GoGear to the computer, open Philips Device Manager (Start-->All Programs-->Philips), and click on the repair tab. Now, disconnect your GoGear from computer. Turn the GoGear off if it is not already. Press and hold the volume + key and connect the GoGear to the computer (while still pressing the volume +). A window will pop up saying a repair is being performed. now you can let go of the Volume + button. The repair will get your device workign normally again. WARNING: the repair process will delete any music/other media file from your GoGear.
To upload files from your E260 to your computer, you can do the following:
Browse the player on your Windows Explorer. Under "Windows Explorer", your player should appear as an icon under "Portable Audio Devices" or as a "Removable Drive" with a corresponding drive letter. This really depends on the mode your player is in -- MTP or MSC mode.
Set your Windows Explorer to "Show Hidden Files or Folders". The folder containing your music files on the player is a hidden folder, so make sure you go to "Tools" menu on your Explorer window, then select "Folder Options", then select the "View" tab, then enable the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button
If your player is set to MTP, you would find the sub folder called "PPI NAND". Open this folder and you would see a list of sub-folders, one of which is labeled "Music". Open that and you would see your music files
If your player is set to MSC, open the drive letter corresponding to your E260 and you see a list of folders, one of which is labeled "Music". Open that and you would see your music files.
Select the music files you want and copy them to your local hard drive
I hope the info helps.
For those that still use this mp3 player here are some things you need to know.
the gpx mw6815dt can operate as a media player or a usb storage device.
you need to change which state it is in via the System option.
Enter (Sys) from (Mode) go to (Online Device) enter (Mode) select USB Disk or Media Device. When you connect it as a USB Disk you will see all files not shown when connected as a Media Device using windows explorer. Also I suggest you make sure if you format the GPX you stay with the FAT 16 file system.
Note: DRM only works when the gpx is in Media mode.
If you have an SDcard installed you can access it via windows explorer or media player as a usb device only. With media player 11 you can still sync both the internal and sd drive with your library however you won't have drm options since your in usb device mode.
Note: in order to have both usb drives avaiable you need to use the Multi Drive option under (Online Mode) in the (System) menu, other wise you won't see the sdcard.
