MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

After installin mp515 mp3 player I can't transfer music to it i tseems that the device has not the driver for XP

Manual for MP515 on this site:

For proper connection in MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) mode, Windows Media Player 10 or higher should be installed.
Some music cannot be copied having Digital Media Rights ( license expired date ).
When the player is in MTP mode the device should be able to synchronize as a media device.

When the device is not connecting, failing to install the driver automatically it will have switched to MSC (Mass Storage Class) mode .
The computer sees the player as a removable disk but not until the corresponding driver is assigned.
For selecting the correct USB connection matching the driver that the computer uses:
See from page 26 of the guide, performing the hardware wizard.
The most important part is described on page 28 step 5, selecting the
driver manually.

Downloading music onto a mp3player

I think I fugured it out. I think this should set the thing up for you. Turn the unit on. Push the button in and hold for the count of three. Wait as you count to two then push the buton in quickly. The screen should display a different "MUSIC" sign. Now the tiny file type in the upper left of the screen should say "mp3". Now make sure you are loading mp3 files. Be sure the unit is ON when you connect it to the USB port. Drag and drop files onto the mp3 player. I got it to accept 5 songs so far. I am working with Windows xp. Hope it helped!

Mp3 not reconizing media player songs?

Throw it away. I spent hours on the thing before I found out about the firmware upgrade, and hours more after that. The upgrade apparently toasted it beause I disconnected after it ran for 15 minutes in "initializing" without any apparent change.
I will never buy anything with CURTIS on it for the rest of my life.

"Synch problem: Synchronise to continue your music subscription"

I would suggest formatting the unit and trying again, but this time do not sync it with media player. Plug it into your USB and got "My Computer", the player will show up as a removable disc usually drive f:, right click on the drive and hit format, quick format shoudl work. Once formated double click the removable disc drive, and then click and drag or copy and paste your music into this drive and see what happens. That player should support WMA files, but just to let you know, if you convert those files to MP3 it will take about half the space and therefot you can store more music at once.

No files found

Ok I have same player, same problem. Turns out Windows Media player copied the files into the FM subfolder on the device. FIX: connect device to computer. Do not open WIndows media player, instead open windows explorer, in there you should see the ilo as a new drive. Click the drive and go into the FM folder, now select all files and drag them directly to the drive. The secret is the files have to be outside of the FM folder loose in the device (not in any folder) After that I safley removed the device from the system tray icon and powered it on and the songs were all there. It runs an index process that creates the lists, this takes a second.
