These cheaper mp3 players dont usually need software to upload songs. normally all you have to do is plug your player into an ACTIVE USB connection. windows should let you know that there is a removable storage device connected depending on your autoplay settings when you connect your player to your computer. a box MIGHT pop up and prompt you to either play files or open a folder etc. if it doesn't look in the bottom right and corner of your screen you should see a safely remove hardware icon there by the time/clock. if you dont the your mp3 play is not being recognized and you might have to try another USB slot. you can also try to go to my computer and check to see if your device is listed as a drive. you should see it listed as removable disc (Drive letter). you double click of the drive letter to open your device folder then you just simply drag and drop the music you want to hear in that folder. depending on how new your computer is and how fast your USB connection each file could take anywhere from 1 second - 2 minutes so be patient.

Bought a gpx8gb digital media player for my daughter for christmas. I have downloaded her cd's into itunes library. Now how do I get those songs onto her media player?



Check to see that when you rip a music CD that your music is not copy protected. The RIP function in your Windows Media Player will allow you to convert the music CDs you have purchased into either an MP3 or a WMA format.

To adjust the copy protection setting on your ripped music files,
  1. Open the Tools tab at the top of your Windows Media Player.
  2. Select Options and then select the Rip Music tab.
  3. Choose the type of music file as well as the quality with which you would like to save the music. (Your GPX player has the ability to play music files in both the MP3 and WMA format.)
  4. Make sure to use MTP when transferring copy protected WMA files.

If you are using Windows Vista with Windows Media Player 11, you will need to follow these instructions.
Note: You will be able to download purchased/subscribed songs to the unit.

  1. Start Windows Media Player 11 and then connect your unit to your computer. If you have not set up synchronization between your computer and this device, the Device Setup Wizard starts.
  2. In Device Setup - Configure Sync, write a name for your mp3 player.
  3. Click Finish. The window closes and the Sync feature in the Player is displayed.
  4. From the left pane of this Sync feature, you can select from Playlists or Library and you will see the content of these folders in the center pane.
  5. Select the songs or entire albums from the center pane.
  6. Drag these songs or albums into the Sync List, which is the right pane of the Sync feature.
  7. Click the Start Sync button on the Sync List pane.
  8. Repeat steps 4-7 for any other items that you want to copy to your unit.

SONY BEAN WONT SYNC MUSIC WITH ITS SONIC STAGE SOFTWARE. with what software can i sync music on this mp3 player


--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.

After i plugged it into the computer the only options i get are transfer files from windows media player and no action, what can i do to transfer the songs to the mp3


Select "No Action," to avoid accidentally setting up Auto-Sync (undesirable). Then open up Windows Media Player, and use the Sync tab to transfer the songs to your Sansa. It may sound crazy, but doing it in the way I suggest will allow you to sync songs manually instead of automatically. Auto-sync will add files that you do not want into your mp3 player. Manual sync allows you to choose which songs you add to the mp3 player.

Cannot use mp3


There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
