You need to install the codecs,
visit www.free-codecs.com
and dowload from there, use the codec packs (xp codec pack or vista codec pack) I used both on my 2 laptops and they work fine.

First of all, if you have volume controls on the keyboard, please make sure you turn the volume up from that location.

Next, locate the Speaker icon next to the time in the lower right corner of the screen. Double or single Click on that and make sure the volume slide bar is all the way to the top. If you don't have a speaker icon, roll over these icons slowly and an info bubble will pop up. Look for one that involves audio. If you right click on the icon, you may be able to select volume mixer or something similar, there you will find multiple volume settings, turn all up.

Finally, if you are having this problem when using a media player (Windows Media Player, VLC, Quicktime, etc), there will be a separate volume control within the player itself. They are usually a slide bar underneath the video or graphics display. Turn this up also.

Please note that if you are using a laptop, Laptop speakers are notoriously of poorer quality and lack the wattage of desktop speakers. In turn, it may not be a problem with your laptop2_bing.gif. You may need to look into purchasing an inexpensive set of external speakers.

Widows media player


Try upgrading to Windows Media Player 11. The reason for your issue is this. For everything that Media Player plays, it needs a codec to decrypt the file to allow it to play. Go to Microsoft.com and search downloads for the new 1. Good luck.

ANSWER QUICKLY PLEASE!!!


There could be more than one reason - the most likely is that the HOLD button has been engaged. Your USB port may not be 2.0 - try a different usb port on your computer. You could be running Windows Vista or some other incompatible OS. You may have forgotten to download the install CD. The following information is straight from GPX themselves:
"What if I cannot troubleshoot an error message?" You will need to format your player. Connect the player to your computer using your USB cable. Make sure the HOLD switch is in the unlocked position.
Formatting can be done in two ways:
  1. Within the Start menu, select My Computer. In the My Computer folder, right-click on the icon representing your GPX player. You will be given a list of options. One of them will be to Format your drive. Click on this to erase everything on your GPX player. A warning will pop up to make certain that this is the choice that you want to select. Once your player is formatted, reload your music files onto your GPX player.
  2. Open Windows Media Player. In version 10, open the Sync tab. On the right-hand side, there will be a listing for GPX audio player. Just above this and to the right are a set of four icons. The icon furthest to the right represents, “Format storage media.” This icon resembles a pencil. After formatting, synchronize music to the player. In version 11, open the Sync tab. On the far left column, there should be a listing for GPX Audio Player. Right-clicking on this listing will result in a menu containing Format. Select this to erase everything on your mp3 player.

Unable to see Albums in my music library


When you open Windows Media Player, as long as the computer recognizes your Mp3 player, you should see an icon of the Mp3 player on the lower left hand side of the "Library" tab - click once on the plus sign next to this icon to expand a list of folders - "Songs" and "Albums" should be among the options.
