Re: my mp3 player
Re-run the installation CD, this will enable you to "repair" the installation by adding the missing files. The first time you connect the player, it may say "connecting" for a while, but 30 minutes, for instance, isn't normal.
Go ahead and do a firmware upgrade as well: Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

You really need to install a program that can "rip" the music from the CD to the MP3 format. I used to use exact audio copy, but there are hundreds of the programs around
You can read about these programs on wikipedia, or go straight to the EAC site to download a program. Check what version you need, MAC or Windows CD ripper Wikipedia the free encyclopedia Exact Audio Copy
Install the Windows driver included in the product package
before connecting your Sylvania MP3 player. Insert the included driver
CD into your CD-ROM drive and run the setup file if it does not load
automatically. This driver makes sure your computer can recognize and operate the Sylvania MP3 player.
Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Sylvania MP3 player.
Insert the other end of the same USB cable into the USB port on the computer.
Wait for the computer to recognize the Sylvania MP3 player as
a connected device. Open your file manager or browser to locate the
Sylvania MP3 player as a drive or connected device if your computer does
not prompt you automatically.
Open the file folder containing the MP3 or WMA digital music files you wish to download to your Sylvania MP3 player.
Drag and drop the file or folder icons of your desired
digital music onto the Sylvania MP3 player device icon. Drag and drop
the digital music into open folders within the Sylvania MP3 player
device icon as well.
Hi, if this is a generic mp3 player - they are more flexible than the apple ipod and MUCH cheaper! I use 3 different types. Firstly commect it to the computer, If you are using win xp on then you won't need a driver. The computer will tell you in the bottem right hand side of the screen that it has found new hardwear. When it says it's ready to use start my computer (double click) ans there will be an extra icon in there called 'removable disk'. Double click on the disk and you will see that it's just like a hard disk. drag and drop mp3's into the folder and voila! you have music on the mp3 player.There may be more than one new icons in my computer - if so, only one will work, leave the other one alone as it holds system files for the mp3 player. NEVER format the mp3 player of use defrag on it - it ,makes them inoperable. just delete the files held in it when not needed. The mp3 player can also be used as a standard memory stick, just drag and drop the files you want to save / transfer etc onto it's window.if you want to turn your cd's into mp3's goto http://www.audiograbber.com-us.net/download.html and download and run the audiograbber FREEWARE and it neasily converts audio cd's into mp3's on your hard disk ready for use in thye mp3 player. If you get stuck using audiograbber then let me know and I'll talk you through it
You can set up the SonicStage software on multiple PC's / Laptops. You can also transfer songs from your MP3 player to your PC and Laptop or vice versa.
Try rebooting your laptop while the USB MP3 Player connected to the USB port. After reboot, try clicking on the installed SonicStage icon. If this goes through then your MP3 player will be detected and you can now transfer music to it.
you have to get music on to your windows media player and plug in your mp3 player and create your sync list for what songs you want on your mp3 player and it downloads itself in about i minute per song
