Question about Virgin Electronics VM-500 MP3 Player

2 Answers

There are music files in the player but they cannot be played

I use Media Monkey to copy files from PC to Player but when I try to play them I get this message: "couldn't find any music to fix plug in to your pc software"

The player doesn't find the music I copied to it with Media Monkey.

Do I need another firmware? How do I know which one I have and how do I install a new one?

    Now I also tried to rollback my Windows Media Player from 11 to 10, just to get it work with Virgin Player 5GB (VM-0500).



    After installation of WMP10 I reinstalled the Virgin software. WMP10 finds the player and it seems that a sync from PC to player works. The player cannot play the mp3 though.



    I also tried to format the player and after a sync new folder were created on the players harddrive. The firmware were missing so I put it in the system-folder too. The player still says that there are no music files to play!



    What shall I do?

Try elfootman's solution, he helped me out with the same problem (i'm wumanz105). If this doesn't work read my post, there's another solution along with a link to the firmware and software on it. Try the steps elfootman has given me,

It did the trick for me anyway.

Thanks Elfootman!

I downloaded music on my mp3 player but when i try to play it it says drm license not available


The Digital Rights Management system is blocking your system. This can be a tricky thing to sort out. We need to know what music downloads are blocked - just some or all? What player are you using - iTunes and MS Media player are very active on DRM - Media Monkey is a bit less fussy - you might try it on your computer. Are the files playable on your other equipment. The more info we have the easier it is for us to try and help.
