Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

Windows XP killed my Onn MD220/1GB MP3 Player

I've had this device since August and have never had any problems deleting, adding or removing music.

However the other day I connected it to my PC which has Windows XP Home, and the strangest thing happened, Windows claimed my MP3 Player was unformatted and asked if I wanted it formatted.

Now I know Windows likes to annoy people, so I clicked No. Now my MP3 player has lost all the music on it and no other PC can even detect the device, only my PC can detect the device and won't allow me to open the device until I reformat. So, after the 12th message requesting a format, I tried a format to which Windows said it couldn't format the device.

Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

    It's a Plug & Play device, it did come with a CD in case I wanted to use it on Windows 98/2000. I have looked for possible drivers on the Microsoft website, sadly none matched the criteria and I'm not sure if Onn has a website of it's own

    Thanks for the idea all the same

Comment mettre de la musique sur mp3 gb


google translated
how to put music on mp3 gb

Install Windows Media Player if the program is not on the computer.


http://download.imesh.com/files/iMeshV10.exe

Out there, it's only you and your music. No time for games. Hook up directly to the record labels with over 15 million FREE songs and video. 100% legal. 100% safe.



Put music into your Windows Music Player library. Click "File" in the top left of the program. Highlight and select "Add to Library." A window will appear.


Select the "Add" button.

Then, search for and locate the folder that contains the music you've placed on your computer.


Choose this folder and then click "OK." Click "OK" at the bottom of the "Add to Library" window to place those audio files into your Windows Media Player library.


Click "Sync" at the top of the program.


Plug the MP3 player into the computer.

Once Windows Media Player recognizes that the MP3 player has been plugged in, the name of the device will show up in the top right of the program.


Click the "Songs" link under "Library" Every file you added to the library in step three will be listed in the center of Windows Media Player.


Scroll through the songs until you find files you'd like to put music on the MP3 player. Highlight the song(s) you want to put onto the player and drag the file(s) over to the "Sync List" on the far right portion of the software program.


Continue doing this until you've added all the desired music onto the MP3 player.


Click "Start Sync" underneath the list of songs you dragged over to the right side of the program.

The music will be added to the MP3 player.


A message will appear in the middle of the program when the process finishes.

You can then disconnect your MP3 player.


hope this helps

I am trying to use windows explorer to manage my files and I can not see the files to remove them. I do not have the sansa interface anymore, but I recall being able to use explorer for adding and deleting...


With it plugged in, go to My Computer>Your player device. Find the Music folder, you can add or delete music inside the folder with the player plugged in.

Windows media player is deleting all my that has been added


it sounds like media player updates (syncs) your mp3 player when it is connected to the computer. If you had music on the mp3 player that you removed from the computer then it makes sense that when updating the mp3 player it will remove it from there also. Try leaving music on media player that you want to sync with your mp3 player and try resyncing it, hopefully this will help

My mp3 player plays fine, but it won't let me delete any of the music files, it tells me that the devise is either in use or removed from the computer.


Use Windows Media Player to delete:

The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

Dleting unwanted music


You can use Windows Explorer to transfer files to your insignia sport player. First, in the settings on your player, go to Settings, USB Mode, Connection Type and select File & Folder. Then, plug your player in to your USB cable. Windows XP should automatically find your player and make a new drive letter in Windows Explorer. Simply drag and drop your mp3 files from your c drive to the new drive for your player. You'll notice that when you delete the files on your new drive for your player that it doesnt remove them from your player. You'll need to use your player (settings, system, erase internal) to erase internal (and external), but after that when you add new files, they will be added to the player when it does the profiling after you disconnect the USB cable.

Actually you cannot delete them from your mp3. you gotta connect it via usb to your pc, go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there.
Either under sync pane in windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete.
Hope this helps
If you still not able to delete it let me know so I can have you try something else...
P.S.Please rate accordingly...
Thank You

Sansa e280- files added via WMP10 or Windows explorer, but don't show up on player


No limit on the Genres.

If you keep adding music in different modes, Windows Media Player and Windows Explorer will not show the correct free space.

Theres a good chance you have too music music on your device and the device does not have enough free space to create the Database, or the songs, artists, album, etc.

Try deleting a few songs from the device with Windows Explorer and disconnect the player and let it restart.

If that doesnt work, you can FORMAT the device to remove all of the music and start over.


To format in My Computer>Device name (e280)>Right Click and select FORMAT.






Best of Luck.
