Question about Philips PSA250 MP3 Player

2 Answers

PSA250/17 doesn't show the songs that I have put on it!

When I plug my PSA250/17 into my computer through its usb-port it shows up as having songs on it (I use Musicmatch Jukebox), but after I add songs to the mp3 player and unplug it from my computer and turn it on to listen to them, NONE of them show up!!! Its incredibly frustrating... I don't know if I need an update, if the files I add are in the wrong format or WHAT is wrong...

    I am having the same issue. Sometimes, though, when I hook the player up to the computer Music Match will show both a flash drive and the Nike & Philips player; basically showing to portable devices even though I have only connected the PSA 250. I can transfer files to the flash, but not the Nike & Philips player. Any help someone could offer would be greatly appreciated.

I was having the same problem with my PSA250/05 but found out how to resolve it.

As the PSA250 converts the files into it's own naming algorithms simple dragging and dropping mp3's work work as the device doesn't recognise them.

Inside musicmatch Jukebox you will find a portable device options section. In here under one of the options you'll see the mp3 device which is in a drop down box. If you click this box you'll see that you have another option for Nike + Phillips, select this option and now add your tracks.... All should be fine.

Hi Richard
To answer your question of what you need to download and make the songs play:

This player is meant to play mp3 and Windows Media files
To do so, you need the use of a Windows computer with USB port , connection cable (included) and a music management software (MusicMatch Jukebox." Go to the following webpage and download a user manual for your player...it will give you all the information you need.
Note: the 1022 is the same as the RD1076

I have Musicmatch Jukebox 10 but have just changed over to Windows 7.I have a Packard Bell Hard Drive.How do I update from xp please ?


Musicmatch Jukebox 10 is not compatible with windows 7 >>
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/

MusicMatch Jukebox 10 was designed to be used on older 32-bit operating systems like Windows XP.Note that MusicMatch Jukebox 10 is also no longer being developed, so it is unlikely that these problems will be resolved in future.
Before proceeding with installation of Musicmatch Jukebox 10, you need to look on your Windows 7 PC for any previous versions of Musicmatch Jukebox. If you've already tried installing version 8, for example, then you need to run a complete uninstall, not to mention a good clean up of the registry.Use Revo uninstaller to uninstall and clean any registry trash ,revo uninstaller can be downloaded on the link below:

http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html

Once you have done this, or if you had no earlier versions of Musicmatch Jukebox installed, you will need to download and install the only suitable version.Download and Install Musicmatch Jukebox 10 on Windows 7 >>http://musicmatch-jukebox.com/

Once downloaded, right-click the installer file and select Run as Administrator. Next, you will need to OK the first of many warnings that the file is incompatible with this version of Windows.Proceed through the installer, clicking Next at each option.When you come to the registration page, click the option to not register and also claim to be under 13. Click Next to complete more steps of the installation, changing the location required for your Music folder if necessary. Musicmatch Jukebox 10 will add files and playlists to this location.As the installer finishes, you will be prompted to install the Yahoo! toolbar. You will need to deselect this.A successful installation should result in more incompatibility warnings. Ignore these, but agree to reboot your PC. Next right click Musicmatch Jukebox icon and select properties > compatibility >check run this program in compatibility mode for: (Windows XP) click apply ->ok.

I cant use Music Match jukebox on my new PC. Why?


  1. Verify that your music is in the MusicMatch Jukebox Plus folder on your hard drive. Double-click the "My Computer" icon on your desktop, or select "My Computer" from the Start menu. Open the C:\\ drive. Double-click "MusicMatch Jukebox." Review the folder to check that all of your MP3 files are inside the folder. If not, search your computer for the files and drag them to the MusicMatch folder.
  2. Turn on folder sharing to ensure the software can access your music files. Open "My Network Places" in the "My Computer" folder. Click "Properties." In the resulting window, click "File and Print Sharing." Check the box next to, "I want to be able to give others access to my files." Click "OK" and close all open windows before restarting your PC.
  3. Check that you have permission to play the specific MP3 files if you are having playback issues. Occasionally, songs purchased through the Yahoo! Music online store using MusicMatch Jukebox Plus have faulty digital rights management (DRM) protection. Burn the file to a CD and then rip the song from the CD as an MP3, which removes the DRM protection and allows the software to play it without restrictions. This is your only recourse, as the MusicMatch store no longer exists. Previously, you could have contacted MusicMatch's customer service to have the song reissued.
  4. Reinstall the MusicMatch Jukebox Plus software. Click the "Start" menu button in the lower left-hand corner of the screen and select "Settings." Open your "Control Panel" and double-click the icon named "Add/Remove Programs." Locate "MUSICMATCH" in the list of available programs and click "Uninstall."
  5. Insert the MusicMatch Jukebox Plus installation disk into your computer's disk drive and follow the on-screen instructions to install the software again. This may resolve problems involving faulty computer files and corrupt Windows Registry data.
  6. Clean any CDs you are trying to rip or record to using the MusicMatch software. Disks with unclean surfaces involving dust or fingerprints are some of the most common reasons for faulty MP3 ripping or poor audio when recording CDs. Use a specialty disk cleaning cloth or a cloth intended for cleaning similarly sensitive accessories such as prescription eyeglasses. Wipe the disk from the middle toward the edge.please rate and comment on this product just by saying how helpful it is.raise the thumb up

    Problem in loading song in device


    Tracks must be transferred using the Musicmatch Jukebox software supplied with the player. You cannot drag & drop from Windows, even though the player shows up as a removable drive. Musicmatch transfers the tracks, and alkso updates the file list on the player. If the tracks aren't on the file list, the player will ignore them.

    Also, you need to have Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10, as Musicmatch uses drivers from version 10.

    If you have Windows Media Player 11 installed, you will need to uninstall it to roll back to version 10.

    If Musicmatch still doesn't transfer correctly, click on options / tools, and make sure that the device is recognised as "GoGear" , and not "Removable drive"
