How do you download music to an mp3 player from a cd?


Hello,

Normal audio CD tracks should be converted to mp3 files onto the computer's hard drive, first.
This is called ripping or RIP function.
There are several programs that can RIP audio CD.
It is important to convert music into the correct bitrate for the player to match for playback. (192 kbps is good quality and often used)
You can use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 for conversion.

When you use WMP 10 or 11 and the player is detected in the program:
1. Tell the player were your music library is: setup your music library.
2. Create a playlist; make playlist name and add mp3 files to the list.
3. Synchronize the playlist with mp3 files to the player.

If the player cannot be detected in WMP 10 or 11, but only can be viewed as a removable disk in "My Computer" : use the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method to put mp3 files from the computer onto the player.

When needing more help, don't hesitate to write a comment in this reply.

Format


There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Connect your player to the USB port on your computer using the USB connector on the Mix Max. A 'MIX-MAX' window will appear in your My Computer folder which is the player's internal memory. To add more files and songs to your player simply drag and drop MP3 or WMA files from anywhere on your computer into the 'MIX-MAX' window.

For Windows XP, you can utilize Windows Media Player 10 software to convert music on an audio CD into MP3 or WMA format as follows:

Open the Windows Media Player 10 Browser, then click on the 'Rip' icon on the top tool bar. Insert a Music CD into the CD-ROM drive of your computer.
Click on the 'Tools' menu option at the top menu bar, then click on 'Options'; the Option setting menu will appear. Click on Rip Music and set the Rip music to the desired location on the newly ripped music (MP3 format or Windows Media Audio format). Adjust the audio quality as desired. When finished, click 'OK' to confirm the settings.
Click on the 'Rip Music' icon to start ripping the music to your computer.
When the music tracks are ripped; connect the player to your computer. Open the 'MIX-MAX' window and open the ripped music location window.
To add the transferred/ripped music file/songs to your player simply drag and drop the MP3 and/or WMA files into the 'MIX-MAX' window.
When the files are finished loading into the player, follow the 'Safely Remove Hardware' procedure as shown below.
Note: For Windows 98SE, Windows ME, and Windows 2000, please use the Windows Media Player 9 to convert music on an audio CD into MP3 or WMA format.

Downloading WMA files with DRM using Windows Media Player 10 (for Windows XP)

To download WMA files with DRM, follow the procedure described below using the previously installed Windows Media Player 10. Before beginning the procedure please turn the unit on and connect the unit to the computer as previously described.

Open the 'Windows Media Player Browser 10' and click on 'Sync'.
Click on the 'Sync List' pull-down menu to locate the music files you wish to download. Then make sure to click the box next to the files.
Select the Portable Device that you want to copy to from the right side drop-down menu. Click 'Start Sync' to start downloading the WMA file(s) with DRM to the Portable Device.
After finished downloading all the desired files to your unit, follow the 'Safely Remove Hardware' procedure as shown below.
Note: For Windows 98SE, Windows ME, and Windows 2000, please use the Windows Media Player 9 to download WMA files with DRM to your player.

Ilo mp3 player


This could be caused by several issues - I will mention two likely possibilities. If you tell me what music service you are using, I can tell you more.

If you are getting a file format not supported error message, then the songs are in a format that the Mp3 player doesn't recognize - you can read my 2-part article in the tips & tricks section to get more info about this.

If Windows Media Player is not recognizing the player, then that would also cause the sync to fail. Unplug and replug, try again. If that fails, uninstall and reinstall the player and all software, then replug the player into the computer.

E260 Won't detect my music


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
-----
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Songs Not Loading On Player


Did you use Windows Media Player to format?

WMP never does a thorough format.

If so, try formatting thru My Computer. Right Click on the Device (e260) and select FORMAT.

Then try transferring your music again.



Best of Luck.
