Music will not play from mp3

I bought a slicK 1GB mp3 player from the family dollar for my niece and she lost the guide to it. I tried downloading music for her but it wont play it, it shows "no file" on the display of the mp3. When I check it in the computer it shows that the music is in the mp3. . .Can you help me in getting the music to play? Thanks.

I also have the Slick Stick MP3 player and it wont play songs. I have syched it about 6 times and when you turn on the player it says NO FILE. I found somewhere it is because of a MICIN.DIR file. But I delete it and it comes right back. None of the songs are protected either.

    The brand is listed on there :) "Slick Stick" I did finally get it to work. I formated the drive and them did a copy/paste to the mp3 player.

    I just bought a slick mp3 player from Family Dollar and it won't work. It lights up when I plug it into the usb but nothing appears on the screen, the player shows an icon that appears to be transferring files (but it doesn't). After thinking we were transferring music the player still said no file? Please help We are running Windows XP

I had this problem. Plug your Slick Stick player into your computer, then go to MY Computer, right click and then click on Explore. In the left pane, you should see your audio device under a drive letter like J or E or another. Click on it and it should show "Audio Player". Click on that and you should get a blank screen if your MICIN.DIR is gone. If it is, just right click in a clear section of the page, go down to New and click on Folder. Name the folder MICIN.DIR. NOW, you are ready to add music to your player. Just copy and paste your mp3 songs into the same page where your MICIN.DIR is. DO NOT PUT THESE mp3s into the MICIN.DIR folder, but outside of it. The mp3s CANNOT be in a folder of anykind, they should just be loose where you can see them. The player looks for files, mp3 or wma, NOT folders. To check and see how much space you have on your player just right click on "Audio Player", not audio device. Audio player should be under audio device. When you right click and the drop down menu appears, then go all the way to the bottom and left click on "Properties" A pie chart will pop up showing you the amount of used space and free space. Now, on the Emerson mp3 Stick, which is like the Slick Stick, you have to put your songs INSIDE the MICIN.DIR instead of outside the folder. This is the only way they will play. I don't know why it is different. If this does not help, then write me at: We will figure it out. My name is Olen.

Usually mp3 players comes with an installer because it has different software.... there are mp3s that can trasfer music from computers through copy and paste... but in your case, maybe that's not adviceable... try to look for an installer... if you dont mind, what's the brand of your mp3 player? maybe i can help you find software installer....

You dont need special software of cards to download music. you can Rip your own CD and compress them to MP3 using only you media player, however if you just want music you can try to download it using torrents and if you like the cd buy it.

When you try to play it the screen should say locked. Push the bottom button that says hold and the screen should say unlocked. Hope that helps. I just bought the same MP3 player and am liking it so far.

My Zen Nano cuts out when playing tracks.

Go to the Creative Labs website®ion=1&Product_Name=ZEN+Nano+Plus&Product_ID=12720&modelnumber=&driverlang=1033&OS=10&drivertype=0&x=28&y=17 Back up your files on mp3 player Try downloading the latest relevant drivers,firmware, and applications. For example there is a firmware update from Aug 06 that has this fix: * Resolves the issue of your player (battery level full) turning off, while playing a 128 kbps DRM-protected WMA file. Download the file double click for installation and then restart your computer. Try it, this may solve the problem. If not again consult the Creative Labs website for troubleshooting. Slick Rik
