After you connect the player to your computer, you should be able to see it by going into "My Computer" (on a windows system) It will show up as a removable drive. Open that drive and you will see the folders containing Music, Photos and Video. Open the Video folder and delete the ones you want to get rid of, that will free up space for music and pictures, but videos a another problem. I think there must be a firmware problem with these players that is preventing them from playing video. I have been searching for an update, but so far have not found one. I sent the manufacturer in China an email, but have yet to get a response. When I get a solution I will post it.

Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is anincompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to aformat that your MP3 player uses.

What is podcast


A podcast (or netcast) is a series of digital media files (either audio or video) that are released episodically and often downloaded through web syndication.
The mode of delivery differentiates podcasting from other means of accessing media files over the Internet, such as direct download, or streamed webcasting. A list of all the audio or video files currently associated with a given series is maintained centrally on the distributor's server as a web feed, and the listener or viewer employs special client application software known as a podcatcher that can access this web feed, check it for updates, and download any new files in the series. This process can be automated so that new files are downloaded automatically. Files are stored locally on the user's computer or other device ready for offline use, giving simple and convenient access to episodic content. Commonly used audio file formats are Ogg Vorbis and MP3.
Academics at the Community, Journalism & Communication Research group at the University of Texas at Austin in the USA are proposing a four-part definition of a podcast: A podcast is a digital audio or video file that is episodic; downloadable; programme-driven, mainly with a host and/or theme; and convenient, usually via an automated feed with computer software.

It may be the type of file you're playing on it. See on my ipod, I was trying to play a episode of family guy. Sadly, the file was bad. I had to remove it off my ipod and find another place to download it from. That's what you may have to do

I can't get any music videos from bearshare onto my rca m4208 mp3


stop using bears.hare. your gunna get viruses or in trouble. Use Utorrent,

Here's a big basic guide:

It's different than Limewire (assuming you're familiar with that), you have to use what is called a tracker. Pirate Bay (http://thepiratebay.org/) and Isohunt (http://isohunt.com/) are very good. When you find a file you like, there'll be a link that says "download this torrent" (http://thepiratebay.org/tor/3876737/The.… or "download .torrent" (http://isohunt.com/torrents/?ihq=aXXo), just click on that and it will ask you what program to use. Utorrent is probably already set as the default program (when you install software a lot of times it sets itself up as the default player or program).

Here's some tips on the whole system. Hopefully these will help you avoid some of the things that slowed me down or caused me to waste serious time in the past, and also help you understand the whole system better:

It's good to read the comments on a tracker like Pirate Bay first as some of the files have weird codecs (A codec is the software used to compress the files without significant picture quality drop off. That's how most movies you'll be downloading go from 4+ gbs to around 7-800 mbs.) You can tell the file and codec type by the three or four letters after the dot. Ones that are .avi, .xvid, and .divx are more universal and can be played by Windows Media Player, some are more complicated and you'll end up having to download some codecs or some other player. It can be a real pain in the ***, because sometimes you'll have spent countless hours downloading something and then when you're finally done you have no idea how to open it (this happened to me a couple of times and I ended up just having to delete the file). If you can't tell what type it is, once you've started downloading the file on Utorrent if you click on the file, it's contents will appear in the scroll box at the bottom of the screen and the .avi or whatever will show up. VLC media player is a decent media player that can play pretty much everything (http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fi… Unfortunately I just found about it recently, because it almost definitely would have played some of those files I downloaded and deleted out of frustration when I couldn't figure out how to play them. Although the picture quality to me isn't as good as Windows Media Player or some other players.

Also Limewire is still useful but one advantage of torrents is that you can download a folder that has several files in it such as an entire album (http://thepiratebay.org/tor/3658311/NIN_… a season of a TV show (http://thepiratebay.org/tor/3875255/The_… or every show a TV series has produced (http://thepiratebay.org/tor/3805079/24_S… Limewire now supports torrents and has some multi file folders you can download but they're still a little behind the ball.

Also, when you are downloading a file on utorrent if you click on the file and then right click on it's contents in the scroll box at the bottom, several options come up. You can one make one file "high priority" and it will download much faster than the others (for instance a certain episode of a TV show), also you can choose "don't download" and you won't download that file (like one particular song off an album that just sucks). For instance, since a YV show season can be huge, particularly in HD, and you might not be able to fit all of it on your hard drive at once, you can download episodes 1-12 of season 1 and then burn them onto a disc and then delete them from your hard drive, then download episodes 13-24 of season 1 burn those onto a disc and delete them, and so on and so forth. Or you could do the same with a show you like and then just watch the episodes and delete them.

When you are downloading multiple files on Utorrent (For instance a movie, a Hendrix album, and a season of a TV show) there is also a column that just has a number symbol (#) that signifies the priority of the file. You can move files up or down in priority. Also if you right click on the file you can set an upload speed limit this is good because if you're allowing too much uploading it can actually slow down your downloading. You can also set what is called the "bandwith allocation" of each file (how much of your internet speed you want to devote to it), by right clicking on it. You can choose either low, medium, or high. Occasionally, something will happen to a file and it will say "error:" followed by a message or after you delete part of a file it will say or "error:files are missing" what you have to do then is right click and choose force start. If that doesn't work, right click and then choose force re-check, it will check the contents and then start over. I didn't know this and when I first got the error message I got frustrated and just deleted the file and all the data I had downloaded. I then started downloading the file again which wasted a lot of time, as I was halfway done at the time.

Hope this helps.

Downloading software


www.apple.com/itunes/download

iTunes is free and is the best software available for use with iPods. Below I have included several intruction (guides) for you just in case you are a new user and need the information. If you have any difficulties past here please do let me know. I have a well of information on iTunes/iPods. :)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Adding content on your computer to iTunes
iTunes lets you add digital audio and video files on your computer directly to your iTunes library. You can add audio files that are in AAC, MP3, WAV, AIFF, Apple Lossless, or Audible.com (.aa) format. If you have unprotected WMA content, iTunes for Windows can convert these files to one of these formats. Video content in QuickTime or MPEG-4 format can also be added to iTunes. To learn how to add these files to iTunes follow the steps below.
Open iTunes From the File menu, choose one of the following choices: Mac Add to Library Windows Add File to Library Add Folder to Library Navigate to and select the file or folder that you want to add If iTunes is set to "Copy files to the iTunes Music folder when adding to library", iTunes will copy all content that is added to the iTunes library to the iTunes Music folder. Then adjust this setting or change the location of this folder, go to the Advanced tab in iTunes preferences.

Can't convert mp4 files to my supposed media player...


As for the episodes you bought on iTunes, I'm not sure how to go about converting those, but your player uses the .mp4 format (according to Samsung) my guess is that iTunes has enabled DRM on those files that is making it impossible to load on another player. (here is a link to some software that supposedly removes DRM http://undrm.info/remove-DRM-protection/)
As far as ripping DVDs to your mobile device the best application I have found is: Xilisoft DVD to iPod Converter don't let the name fool you. I use this to rip dvds so I can load them onto my Playstation 3. It is simply a DVD -> .MP4 converter.

Certain MP3s and videos cut off before the end of file


Thats a tough one, but hopefully its just an issue of reloading or upgrading the firmware. What version do you currently have? I'll bet its not 1.62.02. I recommend you update the firmware to 1.62.02. Go to www.Creative.com to download the firmware, then plug in your device to upload it to your Zen.
