What type of file is it?

You may not have a player that accepts that file extension.

Most players will play mp3, wma, wav, etc. If you don't have that file extension listed under your player it won't recognize what program can run it. Go to your player and look under the options and settings and find where the accepted file extension list is located. From there check mark the box that is required for your file type and then try to play it.

If it still doesn't play make sure the file type is something the player can read. Make sure it's not a compressed file such as a .zip or .rar. In that case you will have to extract the music file from the archive with an extracting program. You can download WINRAR to do this which is free just google it and download. After that is installed right click on the file and click EXTRACT HERE.

However if the file is a genuine music file that is not in an archive you may be missing the proper codec to play the file. Then in that case you will need to download the proper codec. I would suggest download XP Codec Pack from www.freecodecs.com

Windows-based PCs b> Plug your iPod into your computer to open iTunes; if it doesn't automatically open, open it manually. A window will pop up on your computer asking you if you want to sync the contents of your iPod with the contents of your iTunes library. Click cancel. In the iTunes source list, choose the iPod, and make sure that you have selected the Summary tab in iTunes' main window. Open up the My Computer icon from either your desktop or the Start menu, and select your iPod from the window. In the My Computer window, open up the Tool menu and click on Folder Options. This will open up another window. Choose the View tab, and find the heading for Hidden Files and Folders. Click on the button that says "Show Hidden Files and Folders," then click the "Apply" button at the bottom of the Window. Close the Folder Options window. Find the iPod's icon on the desktop and double-click it. This will open more folders in the iPod window. Find the folder called iPod_control and double-click it. Now you will have a number of folders to choose from. Locate the music folder, and drag it to the main desktop so that it's copied to your computer. When the Music folder is on the desktop, right-click on it. From the window that appears, choose "Properties." In the Attributes area of the General tab, uncheck the Hidden option, and then click "Apply." A window will appear that will ask you to confirm the attribute changes. Make sure the box next to the Apply Changes to this Folder, Subfolders, and Files option is checked, and then click OK. Drag the folder and its contents into the iTunes library.

Don'thow to use it


Plug the drive into an available USB port on your computer. Windows should recognize the driver and install the drivers for it automatically. You should be able to access the drive by double clicking on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop. It may also pop up to view contents automatically.

If some of the files came from music services like iTunes or a Windows Media store, they will be in formats other than MP3 and will not be visible on an MP3 playing device.

You probably have a disk-drive with some "bad" sectors.
So, when you try to read the sectors that contain the directory for the 'My Music' folder,
that sector cannot be read, and thus Windows reports an "empty" folder.

It's probable that your disk-drive is about to _completely_ fail, not just _partially_.
Make a backup of what files & folders that _can_ be read.

10 to 20 percent music files-(message)"unable to copy file or directory"


go to your folder with the files you want to share, open the folder select all of the music files copy them. Open up your brothers flash drive then paste them onto it.

If you have made a shortcut to these files on your desktop then copying them it maybe trying to copy the shortcuts and it won't work.

Another thing to check is that the music files are in the right format for the flash drive.
