1. Get on Computer 2. Plug in USB cord in the USB slot on the main computer. 3. Open My Computer and it should say on the side there is a USB device or the type of MP3 players name. 4. Open up another My Computer window. 5. Goto the location your music files are located and make sure both windows are visible on the screen. 6. Drag your music files to your MP3's music file section. Sometimes the music files wont work so first try the WMA (windows media audio) file first. If the WMA files dont work on your MP3, convert them to MP3.
Thats becausethe tunes that you download are probably Itunes, and Itunes has a DRM on all movies/music/music videos.
What that means is the music will only work when they are in Itunes or are on other Apple products,like Ipad,Ipod,etc.
You will need to convert those songs from ACC to MP3 or WMA before they will play on your MP3 player. You can get a free file converter at the following webpage: http://formatoz.com/ Please take time to rate me
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. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format:-
The Philips GoGear's are not compatible with iTunes. You need to download mp3 files or files that are in UNprotected WMA format into the player using Windows Media Player, or else the player will not recognize them.
The songs are in the wrong format - they need to be stripped of their DRM license (illegal) or converted to mp3 format. The best, most legal way to do this is to redownload the songs as an Mp3 file, or re-rip your CD's in Windows Media Player in Mp3 format.
these problems occur because
the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not
is in a certain format.The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC
(iTunes), WAV, RA, etc.In addition,
every file format type is in a certain bitrate, size, etc.By far the most common issue is that the
music file contains a license or copyright (especially with WMA or AAC file
formats).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.If you want to know what file
type you have, then you must find the location of the individual music file on
your computer, right click the title of the song, and select the option
“Properties” from the menu. Mp3 player product
documentation is not straightforward.If
a player supports only non-protected WMA files, it will merely say that it
supports WMA – it will not tell which type of WMA it supports.A player that supports DRM-protected WMA’s
will usually indicate such on the box (usually with a Windows Plays For Sure
logo – which is actually an ironic misnomer).DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and it is a type of licensing
system for WMA files.It is used
extensively by mp3 player music services such as Bearshare, LeapFrog, Napster,
and others.Not all DRM licenses are
created equal – there are licenses with “play rights,” burn rights,” and
“transfer rights.”Play rights mean that
you can only play the song on your PC – it will play fine on your computer, but
it will not play in your mp3 player even though it appears to transfer.Burn rights mean that the song can be burned
to CD.Transfer rights mean that the
song can be transferred onto an mp3 player that supports DRM-protected files.Then, there are unlimited licenses and
limited licenses.Limited licenses only
allow you to play a song for a certain length of time. You would have to pay
extra to continue using the song after that trial period is over – the time
length ranges from a few days to several months or longer.
Are you getting a specific error message when you try to transfer songs? Does it look like they are transferrring, and then do not play? Are you just looking for the program that you would use to transfer songs? I would suggest Windows Media Player. Is iTunes your music service? If so, they will not work with this mp3 player.
You can also drag and drop the Mp3 or WMA files from Windows Explorer: Try this - connect your mp3 player to computer --> double-click on My Computer --> double-click on the icon of the mps player --> double-click on the music folder --> drag and drop the music files to a folder/desktop of your own choosing
Check the format of the song - this player will play mp3 or wma, but if your wma's do not have "transfer rights" then you cannot transfer them to this or any other player.
Apple and Microsoft have not given them permission to use the files on their device yet. Most music services use DRM-encryption now, but not all DRM-encryption methods are equal. Spiralfrog is allowed to operate because they seek the explicit permission of music companies, mp3 player providers, etc.
read licenses carefully before you pay for any downloads
FROM SPIRALFROG FAQ's:
that our music files only play if you continue to renew your monthly
membership at SpiralFrog. If you renew every 30 days, all the music you
download from SpiralFrog is good to go – however, you need to sync your
portable devices every month as well in order to update the licenses on
the songs you’ve transferred so they’ll play as well.
