    I have the music on my computer so I just copy and paste it onto my usb.
    Music was originally ripped from CD using windows media player

  • Silverhawk74 Feb 19, 2008

    Documents etc store well, it only seems to be with the music.

  • Silverhawk74 Feb 19, 2008

    I have tried transfering via realplayer and that didn't work either.

    The computer is a IBM ThinkPad and Microsoft Windows XP 2000

  • Silverhawk74 Feb 19, 2008

    Not sure - purchased over ebay

  • Silverhawk74 Feb 19, 2008

    Files are fine played from the hard drive and also when I transfer them to a SanDisk 2GB micro or crossfire

    ahah..well..then, the only reason there are more than one copy, is perhaps due to a multiple placement. Try this with anything else, a document, etc, to see if it's the same thing.

    ok..then there's something about the copy/paste ever considered using wmp or real player to do same thing? Open a song, then save to a library on your usb drive..

    ok..let's look at compatibility of IBM to your usb device...make of usb device?

  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels Feb 19, 2008

    ok..that makes more sense..IBM is particularly nasty about compatibility. This situation has three aspects:

    Mp3 encoding compatibility
    IBM to usb device compatibility
    Media player compatibility to all above

    Can I assume that the files play fine from the hard drive?

    ok..jury is in..verdict? the ebay usb device MUST be incompatible with closed?

    gotta love Big Blue. Hope you have had enough support on this issue.

    got backup for that Thinkpad?

My micro sd card has songs in the my music folder but is not playing on my phone

Check to see if you can see the song files when you put the card (in a card reader), into the computer. If yes, then just copy the songs on your hard drive, then put the card back into your phone and format it. Then, again, copy the songs back from the computer and see whether it works.

Hope that helps,

How do i download music onto my usb 2.0

Assuming that you have a Microsoft operating system, open one window with the folder where the music is located in hard drive, open ANOTHER window where the pendrive is located, and just drag the song, or group of songs, from one folder to the other one. With this method, it will work as a COPY function, and you wont lose the original files on your hard disk.

5.84 GB will not fit on the 8GB Store N Go

Easy Fix.. You need to reformat your USB File System to NTFS rather than FAT32 (Default). FAT32 limits the size of all downloads to 4 GB. NTFS has no upper limit so you could download an 8GB file, if you wanted..... FAT32 is the default on the unit you have. Easy fix.... right click on your drive, click 'format', 'file system' change to NTFS and click 'start'. That's it ! ! ! !

You use it like a floppy disk, you can copy files to and from your computer to the flash drive,then take the flash drive out and the put into another computer to share, ie. to download and copy files to from other computers such as a friend's computer. The files can be anything, music, photos etc.

Cruzer Micro 8GB flash drive - no user manual

Plug it into the USB port. Press Windows-E to bring up the Explorer window, or start My Computer and open the removable drive.

You can then drag&drop files to/from the flash drive just as you do on the hard drive.

Transfer problems

Check if your USB Flash Drive is operating in "read-only mode". See if there's a "write-protect" switch on it and switch that to OFF.

Delete your file. If not, try reformatting it. Make sure to backup your own files first.
