Question about Nextar MA933A MP3 Player

1 Answer

Random only folder to folder.

My random feature only works in single folders and not ALL songs like the manual states. I am wondering if this is just a freak thing with this certain mp3 player or if this is the way the feature actually is the way it is supposed to be set up. Someone sent a solution saying go into play mode and put it on shuffle. The only problem is that there is no shuffle option in play mode. I am almost regretting buying this model for my daughter on her birthday on Christmas. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!

How do I set it to play random songs?

While a file is playing you can enter the Music Submenu by pressing the “M” button briefly. The Music Submenu allows you to adjust your repeat mode, amongst other things.

The Repeat Menu allows you to set your repeat mode. Choose from Normal, Repeat One, Folder, Repeat folder, Repeat all, Random, and Intro.

Choose Random.

Here is an online version of the manual, incase you have any other problems you want to read about.

Can a gpx ML658B play continuously, folder by folder, or do you have to shuffle to hear all songs?

This is determined by the play mode. When playing a song press the MODE button on the side of the player. Then select PLAY MODE. Then choose which option best suits you. Repeat All will play through all of your folders and sub folders and Random will play anything randomly as far as I've been able to tell.

My GPX ML648S 2 gigabite MP3 player won't shuffle.

I had this problem as well. The only real solution I've found is to open up MY COMPUTER and go into the device. From there you can transfer all the music into one folder.
There is a RANDOM setting on the player but it will only randomize the songs within the folder you are listening to.
To put the player on RANDOM play a song, and press the button on the side of the player, select PLAY MODE and choose RANDOM.
Hope this was helpful.

Random play feature

Try going in to your player and creating a playlist.Go into your player through " My computer". When it brings up your main folders, right click on the music folder and click create playlist. All the songs you have will be bunched into one playlist.

Then while your player is paused, hit mode, scroll to the playlist you created and then set it to random play from there. Should work.
