Re: downloading songs from computer to mp3 player

If you songs are downloaded in a folder for example my music,,,after you connect your device (mp3) into the usb port in your computer or laptop you wil get a notification of new device being installed, you follow directions on screen. Once the mp3 is intalled the you can goto my computer and you will see an icon on the screen for it. Click on it open it up, minimize the screen, no go to my music folder , open it up, minimize it too, now you have the two floders open, just drad the music from the my music folder to the mp3 folder icon and there you go,, i have found these to be the easiest way to do it. please advice.

I'm a technically frustrated mum who is trying to download songs from itunes to the E30 MP3 player - i can get the songs to the player but it is coming up as - "this file format is not supported' -...

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. That is why downloading from Itunes do not work, it is the wrong file format.
You can download mp3 music files from the Internet or convert your CDs into mp3 music files onto the computer and then copy them to the IRiver.
For instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Mp3 player downloads

Please do the following to isolate the problem:

1. Connect the MP3 player into different USB port of the computer and make sure that the computer could detect it.
2. If the computer does not detect it, use another computer.
3. Make sure that you have enough memory space in your MP3 player so that you could download songs.
4. Download songs that has .mp3 file format
5. Try different USB cable to isolate the problem.

NOTE: iPod is using different different file format, make sure that your MP3 supports that file format. If not, those songs will notplay in you MP3.

Empty Song Folder - I followed the instructions from the quick start guide to to load music onto my sansa clip 1gb mp3 player and it shows that it copied it to my player but once I disconnect the usb from...

The songs are in the wrong format. They probably have a restrictive DRM license that limits playback on mp3 players (although the songs may play fine on your computer). iTunes format will not work at all. The best way to avoid a problem like this is to only use songs that are in mp3 format.

Before using Frostwire, understand that it is a very virus-prone site - make sure you have anti-virus software on your computer before trying to use. You can't transfer songs directly to your mp3 player through Frostwire, but you can download the songs into the "My Music" folder of your computer - you will have to go into the Frostwire Properties toolbox, and change your download folder from "Frostwire Downloads" to "My Music" in order to make this happen. Once the songs are downloaded onto your computer, open up Windows Media Player - use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs from your "My Music" folder to your Zen. (alternatively, you can change your Library --> Add to Library folders in Windows Media Player to include the "Frostwire Downloads" folder). Good luck - I could probably write an entire page elaborating on each sentence that I have given you here - but Fixya has word limits. :-) Let me know if you need extra help.

Using iTune cards for Sansa Clip MP3 Player

Sansa MP3 players will not play iTunes songs. Only iPods play iTune songs. Visit Limewire to download songs that you can play on your MP3 player.

I subscribed to Yahoo Unlimited Downloads but I cannot put the songs on my Mp3 player I just pruchsed. Why?

Yahoo Unlimited does not download the songs directly to the Mp3 player - you must download the songs to the computer first, and then use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs from the computer to the player. Check your subscription for Yahoo Music - the lower level subscription does not allow you to transfer songs to an Mp3 player - you will have to upgrade the subscription. also, check the individual tracks - I cancelled Yahoo Unlimited because on many songs, you have to pay extra for the song even if you have purchased a subscription.

Downloading music

Oh.. If I know that mp3 player, it's a USB2 type (Where you plug it directly into your computers open USB slot).

I could list alot of sites where you can buy songs, but if you have some on your computer, It's just a drag-and-drop situation.

Running Windows XP? Drivers should automatically enable it to run from your system. Try doing the following.

Open "My Computer" after plugging the player in. If you see it, you can just grab a song from your collection and drop it straight into the player.

Also Media player might be able to sync your music, but I prefer this method... Less of a hassle.

Mp3 says "No Files"

Sounds like you may have tried to put "too many" songs on the device pushing it over its limit. If it connects to the computer and shown up under My Computer, you can right click on it and select "format" this will remove all of the music on it. Thereafter, you can drag files directly onto it under My Computer. There is no real need for any software. Best of Luck.
