I have a Disney Mix Max and the movies won't load. Please help me. Thanks


Your problem may be that your movies might not be in the correct format. The Disney Mix Max only accepts files that are MP3 and WMA for audio, JPEG for video, and WMV for video. If the video that you are trying to load is not in WMV format, you will need to format it is so that it is in WMV. Converters can be found at download.com , generally for free or little cost. For the Mix Max user manual, click here. Resources- http://reviews.cnet.com/mp3-players/disney-mix-max-player/4507-6490_7-32133407.html?tag=mncolBtm;rnav

How to Put Songs on Disney Mix Max


The Disney Mix Max portable media player is capable of playing audio files in the MP3 format. It can also play videos formatted as WMV and display photos formatted as JPEG. You can convert audio files into MP3 using the Disney Mix Max software -- Mix It Plug-in. The plug-in works with Windows Media Player 10. This software CD came with the player and is not available online. To download music to the device, you can use Windows Media Player 10 or Windows.

Things You'll Need:

* USB cable
* Mix It Plug-In installation CD

Instructions


Convert Non-MP3 Files

Install Mix It Plug-In. Insert the Mix It Plug-in installation CD into the computer's optical drive. Click "Install Mix It Plug-In" when prompted. If no screen opens, double-click on the "My Computer" icon. Double-click on the installation CD icon. Then double-click on the setup or installation file; this file is often formatted as EXE. Select to have the program saved to your desktop. Then double-click on the desktop icon -- "disneymixitplugin" to open the setup wizard. Click "Next" in the setup screen. Follow any additional setup prompts.



Open Windows Media Player 10 and create a playlist. To create a playlist, click "Library" and select "Now Playing." Drag songs from your computer to the "Now Playlist List" pane. Click the "Now Playing List" title to open the menu and select "Save Playlist As." In the "Save As" dialog box, enter a name for the playlist and select "Save."


Open Mix It Plug-In. Select "Yes" when asked to save analysis information for your music files. The software will analyze each track's compatibility with the Disney Mix Max player.


Press "Go!" to start the conversion process. Once the process is complete, an inactive "Go!" will be displayed. All music that has been converted is still listed in your Windows Media Player 10 playlist. You are now ready to download music to the player using Windows Media Player.

Windows Media Player 10

Open Windows Media Player 10 on your computer.


Remove the USB jack cover located on the bottom of the Disney Mix Max. Insert the compatible end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Disney Mix Max. Insert the other end of the cable into the computer's USB port.

Select the "Sync List" tab and choose "Sync List" from the menu.
.
Verify the items to be synced to the Mix Max, or right-click on a song title and select "Delete" to remove it. Click "Start Sync" to download music to the Mix Max.

Windows


Insert the USB cable to the Disney Mix Max USB jack. Connect the player to the computer with the USB cable.



Click on the desktop "Start" menu and choose "My Computer."

Convert files to WMV so they work with your MixMax you can download the Magic DVDRipper found at www.magicdvdripper.com. You can run the trial 5 times so I suggest before shutting out the program to do all the movies you can. When you do it, under the output folder click on Profile and click more profiles. There will be a Disney MixMax option choose that one, rename your title and pick your destination folder and then click start it will do the rest. When finished just copy and past the movie to either your player or to a SD card. Good Luck, I hope this helped. Please rate me, Thank you.

Disney mix max problem


Connect your player to the USB port on your computer using the USB connector on the Mix Max. A 'MIX-MAX' window will appear in your My Computer folder which is the player's internal memory. To add more files and songs to your player simply drag and drop MP3 or WMA files from anywhere on your computer into the 'MIX-MAX' window.

For Windows XP, you can utilize Windows Media Player 10 software to convert music on an audio CD into MP3 or WMA format as follows:

Open the Windows Media Player 10 Browser, then click on the 'Rip' icon on the top tool bar. Insert a Music CD into the CD-ROM drive of your computer.
Click on the 'Tools' menu option at the top menu bar, then click on 'Options'; the Option setting menu will appear. Click on Rip Music and set the Rip music to the desired location on the newly ripped music (MP3 format or Windows Media Audio format). Adjust the audio quality as desired. When finished, click 'OK' to confirm the settings.
Click on the 'Rip Music' icon to start ripping the music to your computer.
When the music tracks are ripped; connect the player to your computer. Open the 'MIX-MAX' window and open the ripped music location window.
To add the transferred/ripped music file/songs to your player simply drag and drop the MP3 and/or WMA files into the 'MIX-MAX' window.
When the files are finished loading into the player, follow the 'Safely Remove Hardware' procedure as shown below.
Note: For Windows 98SE, Windows ME, and Windows 2000, please use the Windows Media Player 9 to convert music on an audio CD into MP3 or WMA format.

Downloading WMA files with DRM using Windows Media Player 10 (for Windows XP)

The Max Clip video cards are already in WMV format but have just have a .smv file extension so it's not necessary to convert them. Besides the Max Clip cards are read only so it's not possible to take the content off of the card to be converted and then placed back on the card. It's more likely that the problem is the firmware version of your player. Try following the directions at the link below for updating the firmware of your player.

http://digiblue.com/customer-service/faqs/disney/mixmax/17.html

If that doesn't work there is probably something wrong with your Max Clip.

How do you put movies dvds and videos on your mix max mp3 player?


Ok these are the directions from start to finish.

You need Prism Video Converter and Windows Media Encoder 9 series. You can google both and download for free. You use Prism Video Converter to convert AVI or whatever file to WMV and then use Windows Media Encoder 9 Series to convert the WMV file to a WMV9 file. I know its stupid but if you follow my directions it will work and it cheaper then buying the individual cartridges. Once you have these installed do the following.

Click and open up Prism Video Convertor.

Click to "ADD FILES" on top toolbar. Find and choose the movie you want to convert and double click on the movie and it will add it to the list. Add all the movies that you want to convert. Each one takes about an hour.

At the bottom choose a different output folder. Then scroll through the OUTPUT FORMAT tab at the bottom and choose. .WMV

Click on ENCODER OPTIONS and change everything to the following:
Video Compressor------ Windows Media Video 9
Video bit rate ------------- 4096
Sound Compressor ----- Windows Media Audio 9.2
Sound Format ------------ 128 kbps,48 kHz Stereo CBR

Press ok and then click on VIDEO OUTPUT OPTIONS and change everything to the following
Make sure that there is a check next to RESIZE VIDEO "Shrink or enlarge video to selected size."
Width---- 220
Height --- 176

Make sure that there is a check next to CHANGE FRAMERATE
30.00

Click on OK and then CONVERT when the movie is finished you can move on to the next step

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

STEP 2

Open Windows Media Encoder 9

click on COVERT A FILE and press OK

Then choose your source file ( the movie you just converted with Prism)

Then Choose a new output file like make a new folder and name it MIX MAX MOVIES and click ok

On the next screen just press ok. Don't worry about the setting at this point because we will change them later.

Name the movie. and click ok and FINISH

Once the converter starts press the STOP button on the top toolbar., its RED, a window will pop up, click CLOSE to close the window. Then at the top of the converter click on the PROPERTIES tab. A window will pop open. Click on the COMPRESSION tab in the middle of several tabs. Click EDIT on the right hand side of the COMPRESSION window.

Now you should see 2 tabs. A GENERAL tab and a 259kbps tab

On the GENERAL TAB change everything to the following:

Make sure Video and Audio are both checked
Audio CBR Windows Media Audio 9.2
Video CBR Windows Media Video 9

Click the 259kbps tab and change to the following. ( If you see something I don't mention here THEN DON'T CHANGE IT )

Audio Format 128 kbps, 48 (NOT 44) kHz Stereo CBR
Video Size 220X176
Frame Rate 30
Key Frame Interval 2 sec
Video Bit Rate 384K (this is a little tricky. MAKE SURE IT SAYS 384K)
Buffer Size 5 sec
Video Smoothness 0
Decoder Complexity Simple

for a total of 521.02


CLICK APPLY and wait a few seconds for it to apply and then START ENCODING on top toolbar. When this movie is finished it will play on your MIX MAX, if it still says that the FILE IS NOT SUPPORTED then you have to go into the setting on the max and change the mass storage setting. There are 2 choices can't remember off hand what they are but choose the opposite one obviously and try again. Also you actually have to go to the movies or video tab on the max player not NOW PLAYING cuz that button is pointless.

any problems email me @ cera1756@gmail.com

I have converted many movies that have worked on both our players so if you follow these directions correctly there shouldn't be a problem.

ENJOY

How do i get videos on my mix max?


here it is, for those who nearly threw out those little things away, im not a techie but after 2 days i finally figured it out. whew! my 2 girls love youtube and music videos so for those who wants to get and play them instead of movies (the batteries on the mix max are not so good anyways) this is step by step, so be patient.

1. download youtube downloader (i usually download at cnet or sites you trust) to get those flv videos you like. (its quite easy to use and its free!!!)
2. download stoik video converter-(its free too) to convert those flv files to WMA, its quite easy to navigate but remember on the OUTPUT FORMAT choose wmv, i used WMV for ISDN 128, but...STILL in the output format click "edit profile" (scroll down to the end and you will see it) another window will pop out and change the frame size to 192x144 (mandymmof2 was right theconverted frame size should be at least the same size or smaller so thanks to him i was able to solve it)
3. go to windows media player or you can just open your converted video. drag it to the sync list, (but make sure your mix max is already connected and it says create a list to sync to mix max storage (internal/external whatever memory you choose to use)

remove and play...

FOR THOSE WHO DONT KNOW HOW TO DELETE SONGS/VIDEOS/FILES FROM MIX MAX .

you can delete it by clicking my computer, click disney mix max drive... the files you uploaded are all there to delete.

hope this helps!!
