We do not know how many songs the player holds?


The number of songs will depend on the size of your MP3 player and it will also depend on how big the songs are.

Usually, the sizes of the songs starts at 3.4MB, 4.5MB, 5MB and higher. If you're going to load songs that has 5MB size, and the player is 512MB, it means that you could load up to 100 or 102 songs.

But if the songs are bigger than 5MB, then you could probably load for less than 100 songs.

Thank you and good luck!

Froze up totally


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, 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.

My RCA H106A is driving me nuts


When the person said 1000 songs, that's only if all the songs are about like 4 minutes long and of a certain bit rate, so around 128 to 196 kbps. Really, it all comes down to the size of the music files that you put onto the mp3 player. As for there being another folder with the songs in them, I've looked through all the visible folders to find the older songs but I wasn't able to find them. My problem with my H106A is that the older songs stay in the mp3 player and I can't find a way to delete them. I can tell you that they could have a hidden folder, but that is not very likely it.

Opal mp3 1g


Sorry I don't know where the "Profiling requires 4mg of free space" came from. But one thing I do know is that one GB of space should hold up to approx 600-650 songs unless they are WAV files then they take up 30 megabytes per song.

Hope this helps

How do i delete songs from my mp3 player?


Mp3 Players rarely if ever hold as many songs as they advertise - the numbers on the box, spec sheets are "ideal" numbers based on unrealistic 2-minute long songs all in mp3 ultra-compressed format. Although there are exceptions, I have found that, in general, 6GB = 1000 songs, 2GB = 400 songs, 1 GB = 200 songs. Very long audio files, audio books, etc will throw these numbers WAY off.

MyMusix's PD-6030:
If you are using Windows Media Player 11, go to the sync tab and make sure it is displaying only the files on your Mp3 player, and not every file stored on your Computer's hard drive. Click once on a song you want to delete, and then hit the delete button on your computer's keyboard.
If your not using Windows Media Player 11, then read pp. 17-20 of your user's manual, available at www.mymusix.com

    1.5 mb used with no songs or videos in player


    Some data is reserved for Sansa's own files and/or you might have recordings/leftovers in other folders. Best would be to connect as a USB drive and delete all visible content from folders (but not the actual folders). Number of songs supported depends on the format and quality of the file.
