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?

Re: file swapping to pc

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.

Hello, the problem that I have with my SanDisk 2 GB MP3 player is that now, whenever I try to put songs on it, I get a message that "the device has stopped responding" or "the device does...

Try and reset the player first, If this does not fix the problem, Click this link to down load the Sandisk updater program to run a firmware update...Updater... Resetting the device: 1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power/Menu button. 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.
Next time you need to delete files heres how. --
There are two ways to delete files on your Sansa player. You can delete them from the player directly or using a PC.
METHOD 1 - Delete files directly on the device 1. In playback mode, press the Submenu button. 2. Select Delete.
METHOD 2 - Delete files using a PC For all other Sansa players: 1. Connect your device to the PC. 2. Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial connection. 3. Locate the folder where your files are stored. 4. Click to select the files you want deleted and delete the files.
NOTE: If songs still exist after deleting, you may need to switch USB modes from MTP to MSC or vice versa. See this tip HERE
Capacity issue This error occurs when a Sansa player is almost filled to capacity. A Sansa player can NOT be filled to full capacity. (i.e. you can't put 2GB worth of songs into a 2GB player)
The player needs the extra capacity to create and maintain a "database", a database holds all the information such as playlists, recordings, song information, etc. The larger the amount of songs, the larger the database gets.
To resolve this capacity issue, you have to delete contents on your Sansa player using a PC.
STEP 1 - Delete files on your player 1. See first note on how to delete files on your Sansa player using a PC.
FAT corruption This error also occurs when there's a file system corruption in your Sansa player.
To resolve this issue, run error-checking to fix errors in your device using a PC
STEP 1 - Connect the Sansa player to the PC in MSC mode
STEP 2 - Run Error-checking to check and fix errors 1. Double-click on My Computer (Computer for Windows Vista). 2. Right-click on the drive letter associated with your Sansa player and select Properties. 3. Click the Tools tab and select Check Now. 4. Click both check boxes under Check disk options. 5. Click Start
If an error occurs while plugging in the player to the PC and some files are missing in the player, the database might be corrupted. To resolve this, you will need to format your player.
NOTE: Formatting will delete all files in the device. Your data (music, photos etc) is NOT recoverable.

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.

Mp3 files edit

Delete the song with the bad info from the player (not from the computer)
Open Windows Media Player
Right click on the song you want to move
Edit the ID3 tag - Advance Id3 Tag Editor
Change the Album info
Re-add the song to the mp3 player
You cannot edit from the mp3 player itself - you must make the changes inside windows media player, and THEN re-add

Somehow i deleted everything!

There are a few different ways to delete songs off your player - see especially the method involving the firmware update.
Preventive Medicine: To prevent Windows Media Player from adding all of your My Documents files to the Sansa player every time you connect the Sansa to the computer - Connect your Sansa 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 "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Set up Sync". When a window pops up, uncheck the box that says "Sync device automatically".
Quick Method 1 - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa 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 "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Quick Method 2 - Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:
Slow Method, allows more control over what gets deleted: In Windows Media Player 11, the files are organized by Music, Pictures, Videos, Etc. First, you will want to plug the Sansa player into the computer. Then click the Library tab in Windows Media Player. You will most likely be in Music view. You will see two sets of folders in the left-hand side of Windows Media Player. The first set are all the files stored in your computer. The second set of folders underneath the line that says Sansa 1GB Mp3 player (I forget the exact wording) has all the files that are stored in your Sansa player. Click on the "All Songs" folder. You can individually delete all the songs that you want by left-clicking once on the song name in the middle of the Windows Media Player window, and then pressing "Delete" on your computer's keyboard. You will have to repeat this process again for images, videos, etc by clicking the little arrow next to the picture of the musical note on the upper left hand corner of Windows Media Player, and expanding the dropdown menu, and selecting "images"...then "Videos" etc.
NOTE: After plugging in your Sansa player, if you see a message that says "Connect a Device" in the Sync tab on Windows Media Player, then the cmputer is not properly recognizing your Sansa player, and you may need additional instructions from me.

Are your Mp3 Drivers Installed? With most removable media including Cellphones Without the Software CD's it is not possible to view the files..

Please help

It might be a good idea to delete all the files by reformatting & starting over.

Connect your mp3 player to your PC & find it in My Computer. Righ-click it & select "format". Again, be advised that all files will be deleted, but you should get all your space back on the player.

Let me know how you get on!
