Someone I know has the above mp3 player and before they download files, it shows error during or before the file transfer. It has occured with all the files they tried to transfer to this mp3 player. Does it need to be reformatted? If so how is it done?
When I try to load songs onto the Shift MP# video player, it loads only a short portion of the song. I get no errors but when I attempt to play the tune, it only plays the first few seconds of the song.
OK you first get..go to my computer and find you Innvage...Ex: Removable disk (k:) it should look something like that...open your itunes and drag and drop the songs(don't try to convert them it wont work...that's when all the idiots get on line and say this thing is a piece of crap....i hoped that worked because that is how i did it on mine..i bought mine from a friend for 4 bucks and that was a little obvious to me because i have a psp and that is how u get music on it to if that does not work E-mail me at Branchsebastian@yahoo.com and i will see if i could give you a more detailed explanation. :)
The shift3 cant use mp4 that you get when you download off of itune. you have to copy the song or video to a cd or try to find a mp4 to mp3 converter on the internet if you use itunes if not i dont know what to tell ya.

Actually, ultimatum, this particular model does play both music and video files, though the latter must be in AMV format. The mp3 player should have come with a CD containing the conversion software you will need. If not, try googling 'WMV (or whatever filetype your videos are) to AMV converter'.
I do not think it is possible to transfer videos directly from YouTube to your player, but there is software out there that will let you "record" videos online and save them to your computer. These files can, in turn, be converted and transferred to the device via the included software.
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer
itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up
erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as
new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override
the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be
reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware
upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites. WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or
FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right
click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to
Windows-based computers. You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself: Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media
Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath
the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking
on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of
Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select
"Format." - this should erase everything. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
