Deleting Files,Pictures,etc from MP3 Player

Hook up your mp3 player to your computer Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer" When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there. Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible. Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete" Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want. Good Luck, I hope this helps

I bought a mp3 player but when i rip songs from a cd and transfer to the mp3 player, an error msg comes up saying file format is wrong, what do i do to fix this?


Download a Music File converter. Try X to MP3 in google search. this will convert all your songs to MP3's. As for CD ripping, it might not work because usually CD's are copyrighted and music ripped from it wont work on anything BUT the CD and what plays the CD.

I ripped cds on my laptop to put them on my mp3 player and i goes on there but it says file format can you guide me to be able to listen to the music i out on the mp3 player?


Check to see what format your player will play, then use the same format to rip your cd,s
If using media player, go into the settings and change them.
Most mps players can simply attach with a usb cable and be seen as removable storage, you can simply drag and drop

I have a sansa mp3 , i am unable to down load my bible cd to my mp3 player,cd says it will work with mp3 player


I would need more info to help, but try this. Put your cd in your computer, using windows media player rip your music to a folder you can find, be sure to ck your settings in the Media player, for MP3 output, not wma. right Click on the top menu bar, chose > tools > options > Rip music tab. Set the output folder and output file type here. once done copy from that folder to your mp3 player be sure you have the room to store the files. My set has 62 cd's I rip a cd at a time and listen to one book at the time, save the main files on my computer and swap them on off my mp3 player as I listen.

I have not been able to copy CD's onto the MP3 player. I keep getting a formatting error when trying to convert even though I am using WMA and have tried MP3.


mdcope2 - delete the msuic files that you already ripped from CD off the GoGear. If you Rip a song in WMA, and then re-rip it in Mp3 format, when you go to sync the mp3 file, the GoGear will basically ignore the new file, because it thinks that the file is already on the GoGear since it has almost the same name. Once you have deleted the affected songs, re-Rip the songs in Mp3 format using Windows Media Player. This time, when you go to sync the songs, it will work.

Guest - to load video files onto the GoGear, you have to convert and sync them through the Philips Media Converter - no other method will work.

File Format Not Supported


The songs that you recently tried to add were either from: iTunes, DRM-protected WMA's, or songs with expired licenses - none of which will play on your Philips. Go ahead and delete the non-working songs off of your GoGear. When you re-rip the songs from CD, move the mouse over the Rip tab in Windows Media Player 11, click the black arrow under the word Rip, and go to Rip Options --> Format --> Mp3. Now, re-rip and then reload the songs.

Good luck!

File Error


Rip the songs in Windows Media Player in mp3 format. Run the mouse over the Rip tab, click on the black arrow, select Format, then mp3. The DRM license on the WMA's is going to mess you up every time.

The song format is most likely wrong:
read my "Tips and Tricks" on Song formats for Mp3 players: too long to repost here

Song Formats for Mp3 Players Explained
By Tha Mp3 Doctor
I have seen quite a few threads around Fixya in which the stated problem is that the Mp3 or Digital Audio Player will not load the songs; will appear to load the songs but will not actually play them in the Mp3 player once disconnected from computer; will skip the songs on the player, or show only “0:00” for file length; songs “disappear” all of a sudden (although this particular problem can be caused for many reasons not covered in this article); your store-bought/burned/ripped CD’s will not load into your Mp3 player; or get the error message “File Format Not Supported.” All of these problems occur because the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not recognize. Every music file is in a certain format. The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC, WAV, RA, etc. Each Mp3 player only recognizes a certain number of these formats. Every Mp3 Player is different. You will have to check your Mp3 player’s product specifications (specs) or user’s manual to find out which formats your particular Mp3 player recognizes. When you try to download or sync the wrong file format, you will get one of the errors that I mentioned above.

Or, it could be a "formatting" issue:
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.
