    Why would Micro soft make Windows Vista not compatible with past windows versions? There better be a way around it or I'll be really mad! I bought 2 of these for both of my girls for Christmas!

You don't need the software, it's optional. You can still connect the player and sync audio to it with the sync page in Windows Media Player 11.

How do i download music on my mp3 player?

How to Put Songs on Disney Mix Max

The Disney Mix Max portable media player is capable of playing audio files in the MP3 format. It can also play videos formatted as WMV and display photos formatted as JPEG. You can convert audio files into MP3 using the Disney Mix Max software -- Mix It Plug-in. The plug-in works with Windows Media Player 10. This software CD came with the player and is not available online. To download music to the device, you can use Windows Media Player 10 or Windows.

Things You'll Need:

* USB cable
* Mix It Plug-In installation CD


Convert Non-MP3 Files

Install Mix It Plug-In. Insert the Mix It Plug-in installation CD into the computer's optical drive. Click "Install Mix It Plug-In" when prompted. If no screen opens, double-click on the "My Computer" icon. Double-click on the installation CD icon. Then double-click on the setup or installation file; this file is often formatted as EXE. Select to have the program saved to your desktop. Then double-click on the desktop icon -- "disneymixitplugin" to open the setup wizard. Click "Next" in the setup screen. Follow any additional setup prompts.

Open Windows Media Player 10 and create a playlist. To create a playlist, click "Library" and select "Now Playing." Drag songs from your computer to the "Now Playlist List" pane. Click the "Now Playing List" title to open the menu and select "Save Playlist As." In the "Save As" dialog box, enter a name for the playlist and select "Save."

Open Mix It Plug-In. Select "Yes" when asked to save analysis information for your music files. The software will analyze each track's compatibility with the Disney Mix Max player.

Press "Go!" to start the conversion process. Once the process is complete, an inactive "Go!" will be displayed. All music that has been converted is still listed in your Windows Media Player 10 playlist. You are now ready to download music to the player using Windows Media Player.

Windows Media Player 10

Open Windows Media Player 10 on your computer.

Remove the USB jack cover located on the bottom of the Disney Mix Max. Insert the compatible end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Disney Mix Max. Insert the other end of the cable into the computer's USB port.

Click "Library" and click a playlist name. To create a playlist, click "Library" and select "Now Playing." Drag songs from your computer to the "Now Playlist List" pane. Click the "Now Playing List" title to open the menu and select "Save Playlist As." In the "Save As" dialog box, enter a name for the playlist and select "Save."

Select the "Sync List" tab and choose "Sync List" from the menu.
Verify the items to be synced to the Mix Max, or right-click on a song title and select "Delete" to remove it. Click "Start Sync" to download music to the Mix Max.


Insert the USB cable to the Disney Mix Max USB jack. Connect the player to the computer with the USB cable.

Click on the desktop "Start" menu and choose "My Computer."

Double-click on the "Removable Disk" that corresponds with your connected device.

Drag songs saved on your computer with your mouse into the Removable Disk folder.

Tips & Warnings

If you converted files using the Mix It Plug-In, you will need to use Windows Media Player 10 to sync them to the player.

When connected to usb, computer does not recognize unit. Also unit does not turn on.

hi there,

it might be broke
to check if u can access it via pc, make sure>
-u do have an USB 2.0 port
-u have installed the proper drivers
(see CD that came with it-there are drivers for win98, if your winversion is win98 t!)
-if u are using windows vista, this will cause trouble,hard to fix,
try to connect to an winxp or win2000-PC instead!

this device should not need any drivers to function, the manufacturer(disney) does not provide any drivers,
but a firmware(internal driver software)
update can be found...

if you accidentally erased it, check out !
download, install and update your driver...

good luck

I have lost the software to disney mix stick. Please help


Please confirm what operating system your computer runs (like Windows XP or Vista). Also, confirm if you are looking for its drivers or some other special software.

If your system is running Windows XP or Vista, you can simply plug the device in and it will automatically appear in Start > My Computer (or Computer). You can then simply drop your music files (such as MP3s) straight onto the device.

With regards.

Disney Mix max

Yep you sure can. Depending on the version of Windows Media Player that you have it's pretty easy to rip the CD and then sync it to your Mix Max. I recommend using Windows Media Player 11 as it's the easiest so I'd recommend you install that first. Then insert your CD into your computer, open Windows Media Player and click on the "Rip" button at the top. Select the tracks on the CD that you want to add to the player and click "Start Rip." Once the tracks have completed ripping click on the "Sync" button at the top right of Windows Media Player. Then just drag the tracks from the library on the left to the sync list on the right and click "Start Sync."

Unable to download mix max software!

The software will most likely not install on Vista and if it does it will probably fail to run correctly. However the software isn't necessary to be able to put music on the player. Just start Windows Media Player and go to the Sync screen. You'll see the Sync button in the top right. You'll see that it splits WMP into two fields, on the right is the sync list and on the left is the library of songs. All you have to do is drag the songs you want from the library on the left to the sync list on the right where it says "Drag items here to create a list to sync" and then click start sync. It will then begin copying the songs to the player.

I inserted the disk that came with the mix max player and you click the install tab and all that comes up is a bunch of jiberish that makes no sense. we are also still trying to find a place to purchase...

The disk that came with it doesn't seem to work for me with Windows Vista. Instead you can use it as a mass storage device.

The movies are hard to find. Try looking at That is the wedsite for the manufacturer. Also try Disney

How do you put music on a Disney Mix Max (512 MB) Digital Media Player

I have Windows Vista and the first time I plugged in the Mix Max it immediately downloaded the device drivers. I opened my Windows Media Player and it already recognized the player. I just transferred songs over walla they are on the player. Hope that helps.

Disney mixmax for vista

The software won't install but you don't need it in order to use it. It's a plug in that interfaces with Windows Media Player. Since Vista comes with Windows Media Player 11 you can just go to the sync page to add songs to the player.
