You cant delete the music files or move them from their original location as media player just provides an easier link to them.

Media player only arranges the music within media player so its easier to find, its kind of short cut. It reads the music from its original location and doesnt actually copy or move any of the files.

So if you have deleted the music then I'm afraid its gone unless its still in your recycle bin.

Downloading to windows media


Make sure you download the music format is supported by windows media player.( windows media player requires formats are supported to play)
If not, you need to get the converter to change the format of music that you download.

Thank you.
Hopefully this can help.

No album art displayed on certain albums.


I have the exact same problem with a 16GB (NWZ-S545) and using Windows Media Player 11. I've tried deleting the songs off the player, manually adding album art for the songs and putting them back on but it still will not display album art for certain albums. There is a folder on the walkman (My Computer\WALKMAN\Storage Media\Albums) that contains all of the album covers even some of the ones that do not display. I'm thinking that something goes wrong when you first transfer the music and then it never can be corrected. Possibly formatting the player and adding everything back in will fix the problem but that is something I want to avoid if at all possible. Let me know if you figure anything out. Thanks.

Ok when you hook it up and it says MTP just push and hold the Play pause key till it says Usb then it should recognize it .....
now mine recognizes it on both usb and mtp i have win xp pro ...  If you do this and it doesnt work 
If you are using Windows XP or Vista, make sure that the player is in the Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) mode. This can be done by pressing the M button. This button is located on the top of your mp3 player. Open Windows Media Player 10 or 11 and follow the directions for transferring (synchronizing) music. If you have Windows Media Player 9 on your XP machine, upgrade to Windows Media Player 10 or 11. This can be done by visiting www.windowsmediaplayer.com.
If you are using Windows 98SE, Windows ME, or Windows 2000, you will only be able to transfer music using the USB transfer mode. Open Windows Media Player 9, and follow the directions for transferring (synchronizing) music.
If you have version 9 on Windows 98SE or Windows ME, you will need to visit the Download Center for updated drivers.

Cant find free download of iriver plus 2


Hi,
Here's the iRiver Plus 3 software:
http://www.iriver.com.au/iriver/uploads/software/iplus3_setup_full.zip

It's compatible with XP and below. I haven't come across a Vista driver for it yet, but you might be able to right click on it and hit Properties and select XP compatibility in Vista, I don't know if it'll work though.

Hope this helps

Creative Zen - can't download music from XP SP2


When you plug the Mp3 player into 2 computers running slightly different versions of XP, a reformatting occurs which will cause it not to work on one PC or the other. You must reformat your player for the home computer. Actually, you might want to check the firmware also: Go to Creative's website and double-check the firmware - it will also give you the best way to reformat your player:

It seems that the album downloads to the computer but when i try to sync to the mp3 player i get an error. i've loades the media manager/windows-still no luck.


The format of the songs are wrong in one way or another. Each Mp3 player has a product spec sheet that lists which type of music file it is compatible with (Mp3, WMA, WAV, AAC, etc). You can't play iTunes songs, which are AAC format, on a player that only accepts Mp3 or WMA format.

The second formatting issue has to do with the DRM license on the songs you have downloaded. Right click a song that gave you an error, click on "Properties," and click on the "License," "Media Usage Rights," or "Digital Rights Mgmt" tab (wording varies by configuration). Not every song allows unlimited or even one-time transfer to a "portable device" (code word for "Mp3 player" in this case). Also, some songs are fixed-term - they expire after a while - sometimes in as little as 24 hours.

To get around this, convert every song to Mp3 format. Either that, or upgrade your music service subscription to the highest pkg they have available and never cancel (Napster's basic music svc, for instance, does not let you transfer to an Mp3 player, but their "Napster To Go" upgrade does allow transfer).

Hi, you can try to upgrade the player's firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (moz-screenshot.jpgmoz-screenshot-1.jpghttp://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=187), the firmware it's the second app listed.
If your computer doesn't recognize the player, you'll have to turn it off and keep "PLAY" pressed for 10 seconds while connecting it to the USB port, then update the firmware.

GPX MW3337 sync problem


1- Check that your MP3 Player's File system is OK, you can do that using the DOS command (chkdsk /f). 2- Re-install your Windows Media Player 11. 3- Don't forget to update your system, too.
