Hi,

From what I understand you are charging with the USB cable. Did you leave it in at least for 3 hours (the PC also has to be on and not in standy or hibernation mode)? Do the glasses charge with the wall charger?

Check to make sure you are using the USB cable that came with them. Although other cables plug in they create the problem you have. I have had a similar experience.

Wont charge properly, music only last 5 minutes or so


Hello there :)

Try to chance the battery and see if it helps or read this site :
http://rubensmenswear.com/pages/photographs/oakley/mp3/oakley%20thump%20faqs.htm

The write on the site :
5. I'm sure my THUMP is fully charged, so why doesn't it play music?
  • Make sure the volume is not set too low to hear.
  • Make sure there are song files stored on THUMP. Connect THUMP to your computer and open the folder that shows the contents of the THUMP memory
  • Make sure you have the correct music file formats loaded into the THUMP memory. Currently, THUMP plays MP3, WMA and WAV file formats. No other music file formats are supported at this time.
  • Make sure the WMA music files you are trying to play are not protected by DRM. (See below for more information on DRM.) If the song files are protected by DRM, you need to download the DRM Enabled Utility found at www.oakley.com/thump.
6. Why can't I get a full six hours of song play time out of THUMP?
  • Many things affect play time, including the volume level, file compression and music file format. Also, lithium ion polymer batteries gradually lose their charge while not in use. These batteries are also susceptible to temperature.
  • Even though they represent the best technology available, lithium ion batteries do not perform best in high heat.
7. Is it best to completely drain the THUMP battery before recharging?
  • It makes no difference. Lithium ion batteries have no "memory effect" like older technologies such as nickel cadmium, so you can charge them at any time - even when they are not fully discharged.
Hope thats helps
If not then try to return here

I have a thump 512. Want to add music to the 25-5 MB (on average) songs on it in MP3 format, but when i drag new songs to it, it says it has no space left. I deleted a couple of songs, but that didn't


That's because no offence but it has rubbish memory. 25mb is nothing these days. Most songs are 9-15mb themselves these days, and so no wonder you have no space left.

I have an Oakley Thump but have been able to access music on it.


Have you tried to drag individual music files to your Thump?  ITumes needs to be set to import in MP3 mode so that the music exports in MP3 mode.  My original Thumps will not play AAC format music files. Also, do your Thumps fully charge using the wall charger?  Hope this helps.

How do you down load music to thump pro glasses


Plug the Oakley Thump into the computer to let it charge for 3 hours - a connector cable should have been provided. Double-click on My Computer - your computer should have assigned it a drive letter. Double click on the right drive letter - most computers will actually label it an Oakley. Look for a folder called Music. Now you must find songs in mp3 format only that are already downloaded on your computer. Drag the music files from the folder where your music files are stored into the music folder of the Oakley.

Not the easiest unit for beginners, but a neat concept.
