Find the MP3 files on your computer. Choose 1 and right-click on the file name. Look at the bottom and see if the Attributes are checked Read Only. If yes, uncheck it. Try copying again and see if that works. If it does, go through the process for all files you want to copy.

It wont play music. it keeps saying no file


: The reason your player says no files is because the files from I-tunes are in an unsupported format called MP4 or MPEG layer 4. The music formats that you MP3 Player supports are MP3, WMA or WAV files.



: Why do some of my MP3 files not play when transferred to the player?
A: First, make sure the Element MP3 player you are operating supports the MP3 file that you are attempting to play. Please reference www.elementelectronics.com to look up your model’s specifications.
Check to make sure there is no copy protection on your MP3 files. You can determine if the file is protected by right clicking on the file and selecting properties. In the properties window you can find whether the file has any copy protection placed on it. This normally happens while importing music files through Windows Media Player. To make sure that Windows Media Player does not copy protect music follow these steps.

1. From the Windows Media Player screen Click “Tools” on the menu bar at the top of your screen and select “Options”. If the menu bar does not appear, right click on the “Rip” button at the top of your screen and select “More Options”
2. Click on the “Rip Music” tab, uncheck “copy protect music”.
3. Click ok to save the new setting.

I try to delete a folder of music from my GPX to put a new one on and it says write protected and wont copy


Try this solution: Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio Books, etc. from MP3 Player
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer" When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there. Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible. Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete" Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want. Be careful and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

Hi,
You are supposed to format the mp3 player with Windows. This wipes ALL files off the player and creates an 'environment' for windows files. You only do this when you first buy the player, or if the player experience functionality problems.
The files that don't appear on the player are probably WMA files and/or mp4 files. These are protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) and will still be 'on' the player but won't appear in the screen or won't play. You should only put mp3 files on the player, so make sure the files you download are in mp3 form, or try to convert them to mp3 files before you put them on the player.
A good file converter is Switch.
Hope this answers your question

Music videos wont play


Most music videos have a copyright protection system on them which will not allow them to be played on your mp3 player, even though they will play fine on your computer. You would have to get a media converter that can bypass or strip the copy protection that will also convert these files to AVI first (by the way, this type of software is illegal). YouTube-type videos are best. You may need a legal FLV to AVI converter (like Riva FLV Encoder) to convert the videos first.

Wont copy songs to mp3 player because of write protection


To adjust the copy protection setting on your ripped music files,
  1. Open the Tools tab at the top of your Windows Media Player.
  2. Select Options and then select the Rip Music tab.
  3. Under this menu, you will be able to choose the type of music file as well as the quality with which you would like to save the music.
  4. Make sure the box next to Copy protect music is left unchecked.
Your GPX player has the ability to play music files in both the MP3 and WMA format. Make sure to use MTP when transferring copy-protected WMA files.

Coby mp3 player problem


Write the songs to a CD (or a CDRW) first, then re-rip them to Windows Media Player/iTunes/whatever as mp3s, or unprotected WMAs.

Honestly it's easier to burn and re-rip than remove the copy protection. When you burn it to a CD, the DRM goes away, and you'll have a new file that actually plays on your player.

My coby mp3 player doesnt let me put songs in it


go to www.oldversion.com and download the old bearshare downloading music program and get files that way. For some reason the newer versions of file sharing programs only let you download copyrighted music.
