Re: Oregon MP305 (i think) player.

Hi, where do you get the music files?

It may be that the music has some DRM data inside such as the music sold on itunes. Get some music without any digital locks and try to play it.

Also try a ScanDisk if you had any failures in transferring files from pc to your mp3 player. Can you transfer files from pc to mp3 player withou problems?

I have a Oregon MP305 too. Mine plays music but i formatted it and now i have this problem: all that i transfer from pc is not visible inside the player browser when i disconnect it from pc. And all the files that i record with the mp305 and can listen to them on the player I can't find them when i explore the file system from the pc.

Can you make a copy of your player's file system ( the hidden directories and files ) and mail them to me?

this is my mail : csnww [at]

If you have any other questions mail me.

We are putting songs but its not coming in mp3 but when we are attaching it to pc the files are coming

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable tothe MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting musicfiles to mp3 file format :- b>

Nextarm933a mp3 player cant get to play songs or download

When you download songs, save it first on your My Music folder for you to easily track the song list. Once you have successfully downloaded the songs, insert your MP3 Player. Format your MP3 Player first by right clicking the drive and click format. Once it is formatted, Copy the songs from your My Music folder then Paste it on your MP3 Player drive. 
*Note: Try to play your saved song in your Windows Media Player if the song is working fine before you copy it on your MP3 Player.
Drop a comment if you still have questions. I would be happy assisting you.

Your vote is highly appreciated.

Deleting songs

Hi the best way to remove songs off mp3 player is connect it to your comp then goto my computer and open up the mp3 file might say removable disk ok select this then it will list all the songs on the mp3 player now if you right click on the songs you want to delete it will delete them.
If you cant use bigpond on your mp3 try limewire this site will give you any song you can think of for free just download them as you would normally then transfer to mp3 if the songs dont play on your mp3 then you need to convert the song format to mp3 just use search engine and type convert music file
This will list all the sites that do this and most of them a free.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further help ok

Transfer music to Philips Nike PSA220 MP3

You probably need to update the firmware of the player to version 2.9, which you can get off the philips website. This is the page for the player which has the firmware and updated musicmatch software they want you to use. Not sure if it will work with Yahoo.
