  1. Looks like your mp3 player is not installed correctly to your pc
  2. ok reconnect mp3 player to computer via usb lead
  3. If in Vista, click start button, click control panel on right, then click system, on the left of that window click device manager, find your mp3 player in list and click on it, this will bring up how the device is running, does it say its running ok or needs driver update?, follow this windows advice.
  4. The best way I find to transfer songs and the easiest is when you have mp3 plugged into your computer via usb port, click start button(bottom left of screen,windows symbol icon), click computer on the right, then on the right of that windows click on your mp3 drive and find in the directories when it is saving your music files and transfer music files to that directory using it like another hard-drive, take note though not all music types are compatible, I know for certain .mp3 files are, ie. song1.mp3
  5. By going to device manager you can check to make sure your device is functioning correctly and what it needs to be repaired software wise, sometimes you can get certain error codes too, I can help you with these just comment back ok.
  6. If you have another operating system other that Vista or XP get back to me.
Hope this solves your problem otherwise dont hesitate to comment back and I will guide you on what else to try.

Brett, Fixya
Any other queries comment back and I will help you

    quick way

    1/right click on "my computer", click properties
    2/select hardware tab click on device manager



    or........







    If you have the new look it would be as follows:

    Control Panel > Peformance and Maintainance > System

    From there you need to select the "Hardware" Tab and the "Device Manager" button.

    If you are using the old look it would be as follows:

    Control Panel > System

    From there you need to select the "Hardware" Tab and the "Device Manager" button.

How many songs can i store on it and also i can not download my songs,


In a 1GB device you can load about 330 songs of average quality ( 128Kbps ) . Simple equation 1GB = 1000Mb An average 128Kbps song is 3 Mb. 3 x 330 = 990Mb. Please clarify what you mean by download. PC to RCA or RCA to PC ?

What's free 4mb of space mean?


if your device tells you that it is a 512Mb that is the total space on the device, if it is telling you 4mb of space it means there is only 4 more mega bytes available for you to store music, information, etc. some songs take up to 9 or 10 Mb so just do your math. and that is the number of songs you can load to your device.

if it works for you, don't forget to rate me

Reformat - corrupt db

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.

File format error - Transcend T.sonic 610(1gb)


I had the same problem. I had formatted the player's drive using Windows explorer and the got this error: "File Format error" while trying to play any mp3 file.
I went to the command prompt. Deleted all files:
E:\> del *
Then I copied the MP3 files again in the T.sonic MP3 player. All MP3 files played fine after this.

Mp3 wont play downloaded music


The device has 2 modes on it MSC and MTP, if you changed modes and uploaded songs in the other mode, they are only visible on the PC in that mode. But, the PC will show the total amount of free space on the device.

If this is not the issue, I would try formatting your device to remove everything and start over.

You can FORMAT thru My Computer>Device Name (e280)>Right Click and select FORMAT.



Best of Luck.

The Music DB refers to the Music Database, or the Artist, Album, and Song info.

The error means your device is too full. It needs some free space on the device to create this information.

Connect your device to the PC and manually delete some files from it in My Computer>Device Name (m240)>MUSIC Folder.

It needs 6MB of free space, so you may need to delete several songs.

Disconnect the device from the PC, it should restart and you should be ok. If the message continues, keep deleting files until its gone,



Best of Luck.
