No video software came with my Zvue Elvis Presley mp3 player now I can't put any on. What can I do? All the video's I want to put on it are in avi, mov, mp3, mp4, or mpeg form..

Conect the ipod player to the computer where controls are acquired. For example, the computer would provide accessibilty to the mp3 player. media playes like windows media player, real one player, apple media players, juke box media convertors are the audio, video management software programs on the computer. As long as the computer would acquire media as videos, the computer mediaprofram should provide the transfer buttons between external connectable devices like mp3 players. However, the media players have various compartibilities recognisable as media formats. The mp3 player should have dictated the compartible format that is capable of being encoded. Important notes includes that, mp3 playes would only encode medias that have been loaded onto the computer completely. For example, if wanting to acquire music transfer to the mp3 player device, the music CD has to be extracted first into the computers media player like windows media player from where transferability is achievable into the MP3 player. Usually, the computer media player should state that the feature functionality is capable of MP3 IPOD transfers. For example, once login to the windows media player software, copy available media files from the files library into the player list area to be manipulated as transfers/sync. Also, the media player of the computer should recognise connected media devices with popup logos indicating transfereabilities.

My computer does not recognise my Samsung YP-U3 MP3 player. The MP3 works, except that now it has no more battery, but sinc yesterday suddenly, my computer does not recognise it and wont recharge it....

Try another USB port, apart from the one you used before, but before doing that, try this nice trick, put on either your Windows Media Player first, or If you have An Apple RealPlayer Application, put it on,...those two applications helps in the detection of Portable devices.

I pod touch

ipods are only designed for itunes so windows shouldn't recognise media player, any way, the new software for ipod touches is greater, meaning your computer/windows media player wont recognise it, only itunes will.

Pc not recognising my mp3 player

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

I lost my installation cd for my yp k-3 samsung mp3 player

This is a cable for your MP3 player. it costs £12.99, about 26 Dollars. You dont need the installation CD.
Just connect the player to a computer, windows and windows media player recognises the device and allows you to drag and drop tracks on to it.

to put songs from windows media, it may seem like a little much to do but its free and online and every thing. just go to google and google "free online media converter". chose the first one. then on the homepage that it gives you you should scroll down and browse the file (or put the URL) It should all be self explainatory when you see it but just in case... then chose windows media in the second box. in the third box choose the one that says mp3/mp4 then accept the terms and click CONVERT. make sure that the song is playing on windows media while it is converting and it doesn't work every time so dont get mad. when it does work, make sure to save it to your computer first then transfer from your computer to your mp3.!
