Question about Philips HDD1630 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Songs not synchronizing

My MP3 wasn't synchronizing all of my songs. So I looked at one of the song's properties to see if something was blocking the sync. It said that the song could be synchronized an unlimited amount of times. I'm not sure why it's not syncing to my MP3 player if it can be synchronized an unlimited amount of times. Please help!

Re: songs not synchronizing

Are the songs in either .MP3 or .WMA format? If not, you will have to convert them before syncing.

Otherwise, are you getting any error messages when you sync? What do they say?
Are you using Windows Media Player to sync?

NOt playing songs says(synchronize to continue your music subscri

If you got your songs from a music service, especially Rhapsody, the songs have a fixed-term DRM license on them. After a certain period of time - sometimes as little as 3 days - you have to resynchronize the songs to the music service from where you got the songs. If you let your music service subscription lapse, then the songs will not be usable until you renew your subscription. This process of resynchronizing the songs to the music service does not always go smoothly. Sometimes synchronizing through Rhapsody or another service does not resolve your issue - in this case, you will have to go through the long, tedious process of deleting the affected songs off of your player and reloading them - either through the music service or through Windows Media Player.

If you never want to deal with this problem again, the solution is to only download songs that are in mp3 format. Mp3 files do not expire once your music service subscription has expired, and they do not give you strange messages to resynchronize the files.

Synchronize or refesh

If you downloaded your music for a service such as Rhapsody, \Napster, etc, and let your subscriptino lapse, it will give you this message.

Also, if you ripped songs from a CD, and selected the option to add media usage rights (it is unchecked by default), it added an unwanted license to the player that will give you problems such as these. If this is the case, right-click the song, select Properties, and look at the Media Usge Rights/License/or other similar tab and deselect the license (if it will let you). If it doesn't allow you to deselect the license, you will have to redownload the songs. Songs in mp3 format are the best, and you will not give you such headaches.

Can't get new songs to synchronize

Get the firmware upgrade for the player, and make sure the songs are in the correct format - mp3 format is best

It's telling me to synchronize music that I own (copied from cds)

Use Windows Media Player to rip the songs into Mp3 format - make sure you select mp3 in the Rip options. Real Player rips songs from CD into the wrong format.

Synchronize to continue your music subscription

it's asking that you verify the DRM status (i.e., that you bought it and it resides on YOUR computer.) It cannot play the file until you synchronize it with windows media player. You can delete them off of the MP3 player just by noting which songs don't play and deleting them through windows explorer when the player is connected.

Synchronize to continue your music subscription

Maybe you should mention that if you format, it will delete all your songs?

What the heck?

I had something similar happen. The solution was to reformat the device. connect the player, open my computer, right click on the device, and select format. This will erase everything on the player. DenverTom
