I ripped cd's and put the whole cd in the player as a folder, and it doesn't play the folders when on random.. it only plays the ones placed in there song by song. Also, I try to go into the folder and press play, and it just sends me back to the song it was on before. I don't know how to access the folder.
I have the same problem with mine. I was using MS-Media Player to synch. Have not tried so simply drag and drop the music to teh folder from my laptop. Anyway, from your description it sounds like my technique resulted in the same situation.

What happens when you chose open to see files, this is how I us mine. I go to the folder tree and drag my files from the computer folder to the music folder on the player. If you use windows media player you can convert cd's to mp3 from the menu at the top. if you can not see the menu right click the top bar next to the now playing button, and chose classic menus. Then go to -> tools -> options -> rip music tab and look for the folder it will put mp3's in or change it to a folde you make at the top of the folder tree say ( create a folder named AAA. right click the top c:\ drive and create a new folder and re-name it aaa that will put it at the top). then in the rip music location chose mp3 rip when cd in inserted and close out and your good to go. rip a cd and drag it onto your player.
There are a number of ways to get MP3's. The easiest way is to use W*ndows Media Player. Open Media Player go to the menu at the top, if you do not see -these menu names, (File, View, Play, Tools, Help). Right click on the top border and chose -> View -> classic menu's -- that will show the these menu's. Now go to -> Tool's -> options, look for the Rip Music tab and look for the format option --->chose MP3. Now, up top, of the Rip Music tab is a save folder option and you can chose which folder you want to save your music in. Then at the bottom is a slider bar that lets you chose how good a MP3 you get after it is ripped. The lower the number the smaller the file and lower quality it will be. A good setting is 96 to 120, inbetween in there will be good file size and good sound quality. Now you have the option to rip when a CD is put in the bay or not, that is a personal preference, so that is up to you. Now click ok and close the Media Player. Now put in a music CD that you want to rip and if you choosed to have it rip whan a cd was inserted it will open and start to rip your music. Then hook up your MP3 player and go to, My Computer icon -> right click it ---->and chose explore go to the -> C:\ drive or folder tree and find the folder you put your ripped music into. Right click your music folder and click copy, now go to your player folder tree choose paste putting your MP3's in the players Music folder. Now if you want to download MP3's from the net. It will depend on which Browser you use. Any MP3's you download from the net comes with a license that has to go with the MP3 that you bought. I just by a CD and rip it No worries for a license. You can Use other software to rip music such as itunes, realplayer among others. But W*ndows comes with Media Player and it is a easy upgrade to ver 10 or 11 if you do not have it, and It is free. Hope this helps.
Check the settings in your Windows Media player under RIP for MP3 out put. Start by right clicking out next to Now Playing, this will bring up a context menu, look for -> Tools -> Options -> Rip music tab set up your out put to MP3 and the Folder you want to put it all in. Next put in a cd you want to rip to MP3 and let it do it's thing. Next hook up your MP3 player to your computer, and finding your music folder under windows explorer. Copy the files and drag them on to your player into a music folder. Done, go play.
open the music player by going to "my Computer" and right clicking, then click explore. open the folder that says "music", then just dragg and drop the mp3 files into that folder, wait for them to finish copying and your done.
The Sharper image 2gb player will only allow 131 entries in the root directory. Create a new folder, just like on your computer, and then add music files to that folder. I have not tested if there is a file limit in a new folder.
First off, What format are your music files? any file that it an ".mp3" which you put on there should work. Go into th emusic player feature, make sure on the left the little icon says paused. Hit the trefoil-shaped silver button in the middle. select local folder, and you can choose from there. I have one and it works just fine, you just need to get used it it ;) Good luck.
