My Samsung YP-U3JQP 2GB MP3 player skips past most of the tracks.

Many WMA's are DRM-protected - the DRM-protected tracks that you have loaded may not have transfer rights, even though they will play fine on a computer. The best bet is to download only songs that are in mp3 format. Another option, which is illegal, is to buy a DRM-stripper and strip your WMA's of the DRM-protection - but, it is illegal, costly, and time-consuming.

I downloaded songs of my windows player and my mp4 player will only play the songs for ten seconds then skip to the next song.

That player is not capable of recognizing most song formats. You must download tracks that are only in Mp3 format or NONPROTECTED WMA format. Most WMA's are protected nowadays, and therefore won't work with this particular player.

Nano Audio Playback Repeatedly Skips Same Section of Song Track

I get this a lot with MP3s and it is because of the chips that Apple used in these iPods. It's only in the very latest ones they have solved this by using a different manufacturer. The best way I found to solve this was convert all the MP3s to AAC.

To do this, in iTunes
  1. go to the preferences and in the General section where it says 'When I insert a CD' or similar there is an ImportSettings button. Click this and in here there is a selector for 'ImportUsing' and change it to AAC - The native codec for the iPod. Save all this
  2. then in the main music library select the song you want to repair and right-click (ctrl-click on a mac) then choose 'Create AAC Version'. This will convert it.
  3. Now right click it and choose 'Show in Explorer' (Finder on a Mac) and delete the MP3 version.
  4. Back in iTunes if it made duplicate listings for the song try to play it. If it plays that's the AAC version if it doesn't thats the old MP3 version and needs deleting.
  5. Transfer the AAC version into any Playlists you had associated with it for the iPod.
  6. Done.
Kind of a pain if you've got loads of them to do but it does work. I tried repairing the mp3s in other software but the ipod still had issues with them so AAC is the way to go. (You can also convert them back to MP3 from the AACs which also fixes it but if you haven't transfered the AACs to the iPod it wont recognise the change of file for the MP3s)

Hope this helps you out.

All the best

IPod plays about 5 tunes then stops

The tracks that the ipod skips would be of certain formats the ipod does not support ..... when you load the tracks with itunes it normally prompts you with a dialogue box and asks whether you want to convert it to the specific format ..... Try reloading this way and it should work .,... if still a problem restore it and reload

The SA6045 will only play unprotected .MP3 & .WMA audio files. It will also play .WMV video files.

Sounds like the tracks you are trying to play are DRM protected. This usually causes the "File format not supported" error.

If you are downloading these files from the internet, then you'll have to look elsewhere for files.

If you are ripping your own CDs to .MP3 or .WMA with Windows Media Player, then you need to change a setting in Windows Media Player.

Open Windows Media Player. If visible, click on "Tools" then options. If the menus are not visible, right-click at the top of the Media Player Window, then select "Tools" and click options.

Click on the "Rip CD" or "Rip Music" tab (depending on version).

Remove the tick from the box next to "Copy Protect Music" (or similar)

This will stop DRM protection on any further tracks ripped.

You will need to rip any DRM tracks again.

Playing of certain tracks

Some of those tracks are in the right format, the ones that are skipping are in the wrong format - convert them all to mp3 format and you will be fine

Problem with Sandisk e270

All files need to have filenames and titles ("title" field in the summary under file properties on your PC). Otherwise the player will list it as "unknown" and it will NOT play. You have to drag it out of the player, rename, and then drag it back, if you're in MTP mode (which you SHOULD be!). Multiple copies of the same track sounds like you have some tracks listed under different artist names--you gotta keep a clean library!! Go back and check all the summary attributes for your mp3 files... Of course, you're using WMA files so who the heck knows. I would be sticking with mp3 format, if you want my opinion.......
