Hello desoren,

The receiver may not be set to recognize MP3 files.

Press and hold "sound setup" until the unit enters setup mode. Rotate the volume knob to "play mode" and press "enter". Check that the setting is CD/MP3 (not CD/MA), or rotate the volume knob to change the setting to CD/MP3 and press enter again. Press and hold "sound setup" again until the unit exits sound setup.

If the files are still not recognized, I'd try using a different USB drive, a different computer to write the MP3's, and/or a different application to download or rip the original music content.

Hope this helps.

Make sure that you encode the files as mp3. I think my cde-135bt will only recognize these. I recently had several mp4 that would not work, then I converted them to mp3 and it works.

USB containing MP3's is inserted but deck says "unsupported" and will not display songs. I transferred songs on an IMac to the USB if that matters.


Using an unsupported USB device can result in abnormal playback or display of the audio file. Even if you use the USB device conforming to the above specs, audio files cannot be played normally depending on the type or condition of the USB device.

Undocumented WMA playing mode


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

How to put msic on it


Hi,
Install the Windows driver included in the product package before connecting your Sylvania MP3 player. Insert the included driver CD into your CD-ROM drive and run the setup file if it does not load automatically. This driver makes sure your computer can recognize and operate the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 2 Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 3 Insert the other end of the same USB cable into the USB port on the computer.
  • 4 Wait for the computer to recognize the Sylvania MP3 player as a connected device. Open your file manager or browser to locate the Sylvania MP3 player as a drive or connected device if your computer does not prompt you automatically.
  • 5 Open the file folder containing the MP3 or WMA digital music files you wish to download to your Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 6 Drag and drop the file or folder icons of your desired digital music onto the Sylvania MP3 player device icon. Drag and drop the digital music into open folders within the Sylvania MP3 player device icon as well.

    Is alpine going to upgrade the usb formay from fat32 to ntsf for playing memory sticks in unit or how do you format music to fat32 on a windows xp ntsf format without wiping out hard drive


    The Alpine CDE-103BT requires only USB media that is FAT12/16/32. You can format your USB medium on your PC to FAT32 then copy your media (music) to the the USB drive.
    Insert your USB Drive to the PC On your PC navigate to Start ->MY Computer Then locate your the drive that is your USB Drive. At this time you will want to save any of your data before continuing. All Data on the USB drive will be lost. Next ensure that you have selected the correct drive. Right Click on the drive on go to format... Under File System select FAT32. I would suggest leaving Quick Format unchecked. So you ensure that will information is removed. Then Click start. Next copy your media (music) back to the USB Drive. Insert in to the CDE-103BT Stereo.
    Notes: MP3/WMA/AAC files are prepared, then stored to a USB memory. This unit can recognize at least 100 folders (including root folder) and 100 files per folder stored in USB memory. Do not make a file's playback time more than 1 hour.

    I charged my swimP3 but it won't turn on when disconnected from the computer.


    The Swimp3 Player does need to be charged for at least 3 hours for the best experience. Here are some tips that could help solve your problem:

    Problem: The player doesn't turn on.

    Suggestion: Charge the battery in the player for at least three hours, this will allow it to fully charge. You can charge it by plugging it into the USB port on your computer or by using a USB wall charger (sold separately). If you do choose to use a computer to charge it, be sure your computer is turned on. If there is no power to the computer, then no power is going to the USB port to charge the Swimp3 player.

    Additional Tip: The charging answers are in the Green Indicator Light.

    If the green light is flashing off and on, then your SwiMP3 player is charging

    If the light is solid green, the SwiMP3 player is fully charged

    If you have no green light - then it is not receiving a charge - check the connection, make sure its plugged in properly, or check to see that there is power from the computer or USB wall charger.



    Problem: I have charged my player, the light is solid green, but no music plays.


    Suggestion 1: Have you loaded music onto the player? Try adding a few mp3 or wma files and test it again.

    Suggestion 2: If the power is on, you loaded music, clicked the Play button and no music comes out, press and hold the RESET button for 4 seconds. It's kind of like rebooting your computer when it crashes. Many times a simple reset clears up any challenges.



    If that doesn't work, then it could be the

    * volume

    * incompatible files or

    * folders




    Volume: On some units the factory volume setting is very low.

    Solution: Try turning up the volume by pressing and holding the "+" PLUS button. If you click the "+" button it changes the song, pressing and holding the button will actually control the volume. And if its too loud, press and hold the "-" MINUS button to bring the volume back down.





    Incompatible Music Files: If you have loaded a music file that is not compatible, it simply won't play. The SwiMP3 player works with mp3 or wma files, but not aac (like from iTunes).

    Solution: Remove the incompatible files. Convert your other music files to mp3 or wma, and if you are importing your songs direct from itunes, you'll need to convert them to mp3s first.



    Incompatible NON-Music Files: An MP3 player is similar to a Thumb Drive or Flash Drive because it can hold any kind of file that will fit in the drive's capacity. However, if you have loaded an incompatible file - including JPEGs, Cover Art, Word Docs, anything that is not an MP3 or WMA file, the player simply can't translate it into music.

    Solution: Remove the incompatible files, leaving only your mp3 or wma files in your root directory.



    Folders: The mp3 player is not able to open folders and play music files stored inside, to the Swimp3 player the folder is simply an un-playable file.

    Solution: Open the folders, move or copy the music files into the root directory (remember, mp3 or wma - not aac), then delete the folders.

    This could actually be an easy fix. If you have any files on the player that are not WMA or MP3 files, or that you've stored your music in folders - either way it could simply stop the drive from playing.

    Can i upload some music in my psp from my pc? is that free?


    Yes, you can.
    Yes, it's free.

    You can upload MP3 files with no problem.
    You can upload unprotected WMA files with no problem, but you have to first connect your PSP to wifi and accept the windows media player agreement.
    You cannot play protected WMA files on the PSP. Here's how to transfer music. You will need a memory sick duo for the PSP for storage and a USB cable to connect the PSP to your PC.

    1. Connect your PSP to your PC via the USB cable.
    2. On your PSP's menu, go all the way left into the Settings menu.
    3. Scroll up to the USB Connection menu and click X
    4. Your PC should recognize your PSP. You can then access your PSP's installed memory stick just as you would any other drive. Let's say, for example, your PSP is now drive G:\ on your Computer. On your PC, click into drive G:
    5. Click into the PSP Folder. If this folder does not exist, you can create it by clicking File --> New --> Folder
    6. Click into the MUSIC Folder. If this folder does not exist, you can create it by clicking File --> New --> Folder

    ==> Here you can drap and drop [or copy and paste] all of your MP3 or WMA files and they should appear on the PSP's music menu.

    AUDIO FILES


    your car stereo apparently only recognizes mp3
    your ripped cds are probably in a different format such as wma (windoes media audio).
    when ripping a cd choose mp3 as the encoder instead.
    it should work

    about changing order:
    the order is alphabetical, you can change the order if you change the name. adding numbers in the beggining of all filenames should do it
