Question about Philips HDD1630 MP3 Player

1 Answer

File swapping to pc

I have filled the 6G with songs that I had on another computer. I have since moved and the puter didn't come with me. I want to move my songs from my player and put them on my puter, but when I plug it in it only tries to sync up. I haven't seen where or how I can download to the pc or even how to remove songs to replace with new ones. Also, if you have corrupt files is there a way to run a virus scan on the player?

You can access all the files on the MP3 player from the HDD1630 device folder in My Computer. Just navigate to the music folder and copy all your songs to your computer.

You can remove songs from your MP3 player using Windows Media Player.

It's unlikely that your MP3s contain viruses, but you can always scan them once you've copied them to your computer. 'Corrupt mp3 file' more likely means the file is in the wrong format or was written incorrectly.

Switching between tabs on a browser.. wait 2 mins + slow typing

wow, you have done all a pro will advise you to do except one. just back up your files and format your system. load an antivirus like eset, update it. then transfer your files back but first scan them for viruses and worms.

Where are my songs going?

Please don't throw it out the window! :O Usually, it will seperate them into seperate files to keep it organized by artist or album, so you don't have to go searching through one folder filled with all your music for one specific song.

When only half of your sub files show, that sometimes mean either the song can't fit, or something is just wrong with the song. That happens usuakky with songs from Limewire or Napster. There is nothing wrong with the computer; it's doing what it is build up to do.

Delstar 1036 problem

If the MP3 Player is like I think it is, you need the software installed to transfer the files to the player, because it has to give each song a specific "code" that the player is able to see.   For the disc not installing look for the option to manually install the software (usually [Drive Letter]:setup.exe or something) in the user manual, and it "might" be a little more straightforward.  However, I am not sure if all of the software is compatible with Vista :( Sorry
