I am having major problems even downloading songs from my cd to my mpw and the instructions are useless bc they don't show me what all the buttons are for, I can't access the radio either and when I play...

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
Google search for free mp3 music files and download them to your computer. Then connect the USB cable that came with your player, connect it to your player and then plug it into the USB port on your computer. The computer will see the player as an external storage device, then copy the mp3 music files to your player.
You can convert your CDs for free and copy them to your MP3 player. Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I have a iriver spinn mp3 and i dont know how to to put music on it can you help me

Sure, connect to your computer via proprietary USB cable that comes with the device. Your computer should automatically recognize the new Spinn device. Software is also included in order to manage music, video, & ebooks (text files). Install Iriver Plus 3. Perform media search on your computer. Select files you want to put on your Spinn. Then transfer to your device. Make sure eject your device for safe removal. Thats it.

I put the usb port in the computer and it will say the computer has found new hardware and for me to install it when i do it will say hardware can't install. what do i do?

Selecting or switching automatically MTP < > MSC
Connecting the player before a media software program is installed, the player will connect as a flash drive also called removable disk in MSC mode.
There are 2 settings for connection mode in the player, MTP and MSC.
See page 36 of the manual for more information and how to set the USB mode:

USB mode MTP
Install Windows Media Player 11 for MTP connection to the computer.
When needing a media player update from Microsoft see:

USB mode MSC
When you experience next making connection:
Connecting the device to the computer Wizard found new hardware pops up.
Only this time the Windows update searching for software will not work on automatic routine:
ending up with "Cannot Install this Hardware".

Manual performing the wizard, setting the device to USB connection type:
1. Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software ?
Select "No, not this time".
2. If your hardware came with an installation CD, or floppy disk, insert it now.
Select "Install from a list or specific location(Advanced)."
3. Please use your search and installations options.
Select "Don't search I will choose the driver to install."
4. Select the device driver you want to install for this hardware.
Select "USB Mass Storage Device."

Note: when using MSC mode always safely remove hardware, the players' removable disk. The icon in the right corner of the task bar.

Sansa e250 "refresh database" error

Sounds like your music may have become corrupt.

You can follow these steps to erase and start anew.

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.

Best of Luck.

USB connection cycles on/off

I was able to resolve this exact problem by performing a low level format of the device and reinstalling the firmware.

Please note that this procedure completely erases the contents of the device.

1) Visit the Samsung support site specific to your region, obtain a recent version of the firmware and save it somewhere accessible.
2) Turn the unit off, then hold down the record button ( top-most button on the right hand side ) while pressing the power button. If you are stuck in the USB-reset-cycle as I was, holding the record button down while it thrashed about was sufficient as well.
3) Momentarily you will be on the "Low Level Format USB Mode" screen, a prompt will ask for keycodes. At this point your are about to remove all data and firmware from the device, pressing rec+menu will exit this screen leaving everything intact. Otherwise tap in: LEFT,LEFT,RIGHT,RIGHT,TOP,MIDDLE BUTTON, BOTTOM. An asterisk will appear for each key entered, the device will then completely erase the flash memory.
4) Essentially you now have a USB flash drive, powering the device on will present a "USB Mode..." prompt, connect the cable and plug it into an available USB port on the computer.
5) The device will mount as a standard removable device called "YP-T9". Open the firmware zip file downloaded in step 1 and drag the two files to the device.
6) When copying is complete, safely eject the USB device from the system. Power the unit off ( might be necessary to hold down REC+MENU to force it off ).
7) Hold the power button to start the device back up and a "Upgrading Firmware..." message should appear for a few seconds, after which you'll be back at the familiar interface. You may need to customize menu language to the locale of your choice.

You can now sync the device to your collection and enjoy until the next time it happens.

Hope this helps!

I couldn't find Sansa on my computer when I connect with USB cable!

Go into the device manager by right clicking on my computer, hitting manage, and highlighting device manager. Expand the usb devices section and see if there are any unknown devices listed. Hit view Show hidden devices if you cant find anything. Remove anything that says unknown device. Take out the device from the computer, install the most recent software from their website. Connect the device back.
