Question about Cowon System MP3 & Digital Media Players

Open Question

Glitchs in playback

All audio files I have downloaded from my PC have occasional unpleasant sharp sounds like a needle being knocked on a record or a hard disc slip error, they seem to occur at similar places in tracks as one plays them. These sounds are not there when I play the original tracks on my PC.

I downloaded an updated firmware edition, this didn't alter what was happening.

SOURCE: Cannot play file! File is corrupted.

I had that problem with music files. Said corrupt file whenever I played in shuffle/all mode. I fixed it very simply. Here's how.
On your screen (not computer, just your 605), open Menu, then hit Settings. At the bottom is System. Open that. When you do, you'll see your system info. There's a button that says "Update ARC Library." Hit it. It will take a few seconds, but you'll see everything new you've loaded being updated quickly. After I did that, I had no more problems. Hope it helps on your music, and also any other problems. paul4laffs

SOURCE: my opal 4208 rd won't play audible files

Some players need license to play. One way if you can use a program such as nero, super sound recorder, media coder to name a few and record the songs again and then just copy and paste the song into the player. There are alot of free programs that do that. you can email and I will send you a list of free programs that do that.

SOURCE: My GC820 is not working

The firmware does not need to be updated. After a mode is selected by moving the mode slider switch left or right then depress that same mode slider switch like a button. When the mode switch is used to change a mode but one does not press it in to select it, that is when the play button changes colors.

I have a iriver t10 What i recorded is listed but i can not get it to playback what do i do

If the file is accessed but is not heard it is possible that the recording was not done. It is best to confirm this by connecting the player and downloading the file to the PC , now open the files and check the properties. If the content is seen choose the right player to play the data. Now you can transfer this back to the player and see it works. if not clear the memory and copy once again.

I downloaded a .msf file from a Sony audio recorder. Please advice how I could playback this audio .msf file.


It seems like you've downloaded the wrong files...
As mentioned at Sony's FAQ:
MSGLIST.MSF is a file that contains information such as the order of folders, playback order of audio files and recording date and time. If user connects the recorder to the computer, the MSGLIST.MSF files are displayed but do not delete or change these files. If these files are operated, the saved files may be broken or the recorder may not work correctly.

The right way to copy your recordings is explained here...

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with 4 "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Good luck and Best regards,

How can i download songs?

So, you are intending to buy a new MP3 player. You have a wide variety of options to chose from. Creative, Coby, or an RCA MP3 player are just a few of them. It may even be a cell phone that doubles as an MP3 player, or a handheld game console such as Sony PSP (PlayStation Portable). The next important step is knowing, how to store music on my MP3 player, so that you can listen to music while you're commuting to and from work. This article will tell you how to download music onto MP3 device.

How to Download Songs from Internet?

The first step is to download music from the Internet. You can download songs from websites, who allow you to do it for free, or you may have to pay for the downloads. One of the ways is going to the Apple iTunes music store and pay 99 cents for every song you want to download.

Note that these songs are protected by Apple's FairPlay DRM (Digital Rights Management), so you can play the songs only on the Apple iPod, MP3 players. Other online stores encrypt the songs using the Windows Media Digital Rights Management (WMDRM) for security purposes. In order to decrypt and playback these files, you need the license key. If your license has expired, you will not be able to playback the files. Your MP3 player has to support WMDRM, in order to play these audio files.

You can also use a music subscription service such as eMusic. For $11.99 per month, you can download upto 24 songs a month. Other online music stores are Napster, MusicNow, URGE, and Yahoo! Music, which also allow music download, for a certain charge that you have to pay. The other way is to simply search for the song title and artist name on Google, and download the song from some website which allows you to do so for free. You can also download entire albums using BitTorrent.

How Do I Download Music onto an MP3 Player?

Another way to get MP3 files is by ripping your music CDs. In this way, you can convert your music to MP3 or WMA (Windows Media Audio) format. To do this, first insert the music CD into the computer's CD drive. Then you can rip your CD using Windows Media Player, to encode your music to the WMA format. Note that you should deselect the "Copy Protect Music" option so that your music files are compatible with most MP3 players.

The next step is to download music onto MP3 player. This means to copy or sync the songs you want, to your MP3 player. You must be wondering, how do I download songs to an MP3 player? You have to connect the MP3 player to the computer using a USB (Universal Serial Bus) cable. If your MP3 player has USB-MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) support, then even better. The Windows operating system will automatically detect the device, which will be shown as a USB flash drive.

You can find the device by going to "My Computer". Then you can copy and paste the files from your computer to the MP3 player. Otherwise, you can go to "Windows Explorer" and drag and drop the files to your MP3 player. Note that you need to drop the songs into the right directory, or the MP3 player will not be able to play the files.

You can also use the media management functions of Windows Media Player to transfer the files. Most MP3 players have special software available from the manufacturer to sync the files. For example, the Creative Zen MP3 player has the "Creative Media Explorer" to allow you to import the audio. Note that you may also have to install specific drivers for the MP3 player.

Most MP3 players can handle audio files in three formats: MP3, WMA, and WAV. There are also other file formats such as OGG and Apple's AAC (Advanced Audio Coding). MP3 players can also work as FM radio, so you can listen to radio stations that are available in your city. They can also record voice. You have to simply press the Record button, and speak to the device, and then playback what you have just said.

MP3 players also have other functions such as the ability to view photos and playback videos. Hope this article has helped you to learn, how to download music onto an MP3 player. Now, that you know how to copy music to MP3 players, you can enjoy listening to music whenever and wherever you want to.

Lost my manul for archos jukebox recorder 20 mp3 player/recorder & data storage

Go to the RockBox software site. RockBox is provided freely by an end-user created and supported group and is a wonderfully evolved software replacement for quite a few portable music-playing machines. Your Archos Jukebox recorder is long out of warranty, so there's NO downside in updating it by installing the most current version of RockBox. That will greatly extend the capabilities of your machine.

Then download the RockBox user Manual! That will be your new Archos JukeBox Recorder User Manual. You'll be able to select what you hear by one of two control strategies: File names or by Playlists. You'll be able to adjust playback sound in new and more powerful ways than just using the equalizer. Also it will allow you to control playback "pitch" or speed, so you can hear lectures or books at a higher playback speed. Human retention actually improves when playback speed is increased some. You can print out the RockBox pdf. format manual if you'd like or you can study it on line. Lots of choices.

Good luck with your "obsolete" Archos JukeBox. I actually prefer the earlier models which were powered by four rechargeable AA cells rather than those with the replaceable lithium battery. I know someone who ran one of these continually for more than a year to provide background music, plugged into a wall-wart charger and his sound system. Durable!

How do i put video in my Jensen SMPV-2GBUB unit?

Some MP3 players can only play certain types of video files. The type of video files that you are putting on your player may not be readable by the player. The specs show the player can read MP3, WMA, WAV, FLAC, APE. Check the file type of the movie you are putting on it and see if it is any of these types...if not then that is the problem. Here is a link to the download page and it looks like there is software for your player.

  • Playback of MP3, WMA, WAV, FLAC, APE
  • 2GB Built-in Flash Memory (Optional: Up to 8GB)
  • 1.5”” Color CSTN Display
  • Multi-lingual Display
  • USB 2.0 Interface for High Speed Downloads
  • Preset EQ Settings
  • E-book, AVI Movie, Voice Recording & Photo Browse Function
  • FM Tuner
  • Stereo Earbuds
  • Power: Built-in Rechargeable Lithium Battery
  • Size: 1-11/16”(H) x 1-11/16”(W) x 15/32 ” (D)
