When trying to play music the display shows "Unknown Format"

Only MP3 and unprotected WMA files re supported. If you upload copy protected WMA files or any of the iTunes AAC formated songs, they will not play. All purchases from the iTunes store have to be converted to MP3 before they can be played on this player.

Also, some older MP3 players will not be able to play MP3 audio encoded at high bitrates.

I have the slick mp3 player. I have downloaded music and can get to the files and see the data, however I can not get the player to play the music. It say unknown format. Also I can hook the player back to...

convert your files to supported format.... mp3.... use your mp3 player's software to export from pc to player to assure compatibility versus using your mp3 player as thumbdrive and drag-n-dropping files to it.
