Emerson 4GB MP3 player EMP513-4 files don't show in Windows
I have an Emerson 4GB MP3/WMA player. EMP513-4 The first time I plugged it into my computer, it showed up as an external drive. So I just did a drag-and-drop of my music directories. So far, so good. I had bought a second one for my wife. I plugged her's into my computer, same thing, no problem. I plugged her Emerson into my computer yesterday to upload some new music files. No problem, showed up as an external drive and drag-and-drop worked fine. Plugged my player in - Huh? Now it only shows as ''Audio Player''. If I open ''Audio Player'', no files are there. I can Sync from Windows Media Player, it will add files. But the existing files don't show from Windows. They are still in the player, I can see and play them from the player itself. The new files are added in a new directory ''MTPMEDIA'' with subdirectories containing the albums I just added. I can navigate there and play them. When I tried plugging it into another computer, again it only shows ''Audio Player'', and doesn't even show the files I just sync'd! And there is nothing that shows up in ''Safely remove hardware''. However, if I plug my wife's player into either computer, opening ''Audio Player'' still shows all the directories by artist and album. But- it does not show up in ''Safely remove hardware'' now, either. Any ideas?
WindowsXP SP3 and Vista SP1

Not a problem. Microsoft Digital Rights Management (required by RIAA and record companies) enforces one copy per song only. Otherwise you are a pirate. Buy another copy of the song. "Arrgh, me matey," says the parrot.

This issue is very easy to dispose of. A free online converter could assist you. Whatever the OS ur running on your computer, this Free WMA to MP3 Converter is available. Ive used it for many times. It is very helpful.
Looks there is a previous version of this same player which reproduces WMA but according to current manual which came with player, it supports audio formats MP3, OGG,APE, FLAC,WAV and AAC. WMA is not included I happen to like WMA format so copied some WMA files to music folder. Player hadn't recognized it. So changed wma extension to mp3, just as simple as that.and now I have no problem to listen my wma audio discography. This trick saved me long hours of the file conversion process.
Warning: Don't TAG these renamed mp3 files. They'll get illegiblel
By the way, Earphones have surprisingly good sound quality but they don't fit in my ears! So I replaced the with Samsung earplugs which came with my cell phone
Your Samsung Hue can only play MP3 encoded files (extension mp3). If you have taken music that has been ripped using the windows media player, the default rip settings put the tracks into windows media audio format (wma) which your phone cannot read. You'll need to find a free wma to mp3 converter and convert your files to load onto your phone. You can also set Windows Media Player to default to MP3 when ripping under the Tools|Options menu item. Look under the RIP tab and change the default format to MP3. If you are already using MP3, it is possible that you are using to high of a Kbs rate on your MP3's in which case you'll need to be sure you rip tracks in a lower Kbs rate (also under the RIP tab in Windows Media Player). Here is a link to a free WMA to MP3 converter... http://download.cnet.com/1770-20_4-0.html?query=wma+to+mp3+converter&tag=srch%3Ba&searchtype=downloads&filterName=platform%3DWindows&filter=platform%3DWindows
the first thing you should do is backup and remove all songs through your usb software interface. be sure to have windows 10 installed. also, be sure that you're loading only .mp3 or .wma files to the machine.
- Connect your MP3 player to your PC/Laptop and use 'Windows Explorer' to locate the drive for your MP3 player.
- Right click on the mouse while pointer is on your seleted MP3 drive and select 'properties'
- This will show your actual 'Used space' and 'Free space' for your MP3 player.
- If you are using more space than you thought, double click on your MP3 drive to display your files in 'details' mode which will show the 'missing' individual file size details that were previously loaded.
Hope it helps!
find out what type of media you can play .if you can play wma then you just use your windows media player to sync to the device and then load your songs and video to the player using windows media player !! Then hit the sync button to load player!! If doesn't use wma then find out which type files it plays then find out which music service it syncs to!!swampratt200!!AAAEEE!!!
"File Format Not Supported" - SA6045/37 The file format not supported message means that the type of file you are trying to load into the GoGear is not compatible with the GoGear. There are no GoGear's that are compatible with iTunes. As far as WMA files are concerned, the GoGear's vary wildly. If the WMA file has a bit rate higher than 192 kbps (which is quite common nowadays), it will not work. If you actually have an SA6045, then make sure the license on the WMA file has "transfer rights," or that the license has not expired. You can check this by right-clicking on the song, selecting Properties, and looking at the tab that says "license" or "digital rights management." If you find that you are using an incompatible format, convert the songs to mp3 format. If the songs came from CD, use Windows Media Player to re-rip the songs in Mp3 format. You can do this in Windows Media Player 11 byhighlighting the "Rip" tab, pulling down the drop down-menu by clicking on the little tiny arrow that appears underneath the word "rip," and selecting "format", and then "mp3". Good luck! -Tha Mp3 Doctor
The songs that you are syncing may not be in the right format for this particular Mp3 player. Where did you get the songs? Q: What type of files can I play?
A: Mp3 and WMA files. DRM protected WMA files, such as those purchased from many online music services, must be copied to the player via Windows Media Player or the music management software compatible with your online music store.
The player does not support AAC file playback. (i.e: iTunes will not work)
Yes, you can, although using Window Media Player to transfer/sync is very slow. It is essential to use Windows Media Player if you want to transfer licenced .wma files but it is quicker to just drag & drop the files in Windows.
(.wma files are like mp3s but use a different encoding method)
If you are happy to take the slow route using WMP, (or you need to use WMP to transfer .wma files) then connect your player to the computer by USB, open WMP & click "Sync". Your player should show & you can add files to it in this window.
For quicker file transfer, just locate your connected mp3 player (Start/MyComputer) then copy & paste, or drag & drop files or folders onto it.
