Files in .mp3 format can be encoded in many ways. In most cases, that problem you ran into is the result of the player not being able to play mp3's that have variable bit rate (VBR). Remember one song that plays normally and one that doesn't play. Then check their properties on your PC. The one that plays probably has CBR (constant bit rate) (it would say 128kbps CBR or 320kbps CBR, for example), while the one not playing probably has some version of VBR. If that's not the case, please say so, we'll look further into it. You should also check the manual that came with the player, it usually says what formats and what sorts of formats can the player play.
Check if the song you are trying to play has the file extension .mp3 or .wma, You can check the song's file extension on your computer, if you are using windows, right click on the file and hit properties.
Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,etc from MP3 Player
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Be careful and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player.
I hope this helps
Please rate me,
It sounds like there is a corrupt music file in the Ipod. If you can sync to computer and try and play each one to find which is corrupt, that would be ideal. If this is not possible (because you have thousands of songs), then try and remember the last songs you placed on it that could have caused it.
Deleting this one (may be more) bad song(s) will fix all the issues.
The songs must only be in the mp3 (and m4a, maybe) format to play. Remember, not just the extension ".mp3", but the encoding must be in mp3. There are plenty of free programs that can convert your songs to mp3, like Mediamonkey, Itunes, etc.
to record new music to mp3 from a cd just open up windows media player and insert your cd click on rip and there you go your new music should be added to your library there and after that you can sync it to your mp3 player with no problems
criss - yeah, this player does not play songs without earphones
The 5 Rs: Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore
Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with iPod shuffle. Try
these steps one at a time until the problem is resolved. If one of the following doesn’t
help, read on for solutions to specific problems.
â Reset iPod shuffle by turning it off, waiting five seconds, and then turning it back on
â Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod shuffle in iTunes.
â Restart your computer, and make sure you have the latest software updates
â Reinstall iTunes software from the latest version on the web.
â Restore iPod shuffle. See “Updating and Restoring iPod shuffle Software” on
I would suggest that you have a look at the file format, i.e .mp3 .wma and then make sure that you mp3 player supports that file format because if the mp3 player only supports mp3's then it will not play .wma. Please remember to give me a good rating.
read licenses carefully before you pay for any downloads
FROM SPIRALFROG FAQ's:
that our music files only play if you continue to renew your monthly
membership at SpiralFrog. If you renew every 30 days, all the music you
download from SpiralFrog is good to go – however, you need to sync your
portable devices every month as well in order to update the licenses on
the songs you’ve transferred so they’ll play as well.
