1) The file is not in a format recognized by the player - Philips only recognizes mp3 and wma files, so it will not play iTunesmy mp4 player (phillips) won't - 1.gif files, for instance
2) The file you are transferring has DRM encryption, and your player does not support DRM-encryption (or the reverse - the file does not have encryption, and needs to be encrypted)

BTW, most Philips players were not automatically created for Vista. You may need to download the Vista compatible version of the software at www.usasupport.philips.com, or you may run into problems with this player in the future.

Why do i get format error when i put songs from a cd on the eclipse?


Hi,

1. Why do i get format error when i put songs from a cd on the eclipse?
= This is probably because the format that your songs are currently in is not supported by your device. Supported devices on the Mach Speed Eclipse 180 MP3 player are: mp3, wav, and wma. If your music is for example filename.cda, it won't be able to play because of the file format being .cda.


2. I also see the song on the eclipse but it says drm protected and will not play the song.
= When ripping your music, check your ripping options in whichever ripping software you are using that protecting music files is off, this may be the reason why your music cannot play - it may be protected to only play on the computer that ripped(recorded or duplicated) the song.

I cant charge this mp4 from my computer and also i cant impot songs in this mp4


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

Loaded songs from cds ripped to computer. When itry ro play the songs on the media player, I get a 'format error'


Your getting a format error because the format of the song,video,etc
you are trying to play is not the format needed by your MP3 player to
play the song,video,etc.
Always check in your owners manual to find out what format your player
requires.
Once you have determined what the format you have (MP3,MP4,ACC,WMA,etc.)
you will need to determine what format you need for your player to play
those songs,video,etc.
If the format that you have for your songs,videos,etc is different than
the format that you need for your player to play them, then you will
have to download a format converter and convert each song,video,etc to
the format that is usable in your MP3 player.

Cant figure out how to use mp4 player,no manual.help?


This isn't the best manual I've ever seen, but here it is: http://http.vitalstreamcdn.com/cobyelectronics_vitalstream_com/manuals/MPC848_MN.pdf
You can also use Windows Media Player to transfer your songs onto the player. It is not compatible with iTunes, but you can use the Rip tab in Windows Media Player to rip songs from a CD - you have to go into the Rip Options and change the Rip format to Mp3 first. Coby does have a video on the process at:
http://www.cobyusa.com/?p=tutorial

You can also load mp3 files from a music service such as Limewire into your computer's "My Music" folder - Windows Media Player should automatically detect the songs, but it may take a few minutes.

Good luck!

MP3 formating


Here's what you want to do. Use Windows Media Player to re-Rip the CD's in Mp3 format. Go to Windows Media Player 11 --> Rip --> Rip Options --> Format --> Mp3 (you can get to Rip options by moving the mouse over the Rip tab, and a small black arrow will appear - click on the arrow).

Once the songs are in true mp3 format, you can then use the Sync tab in Windows Media Player to transfer the songs.

Unfortunately, many of the newer Philips players do not recognize DRM-encryption, which is why the songs would have worked in one player and not this one.

Or:

You have to get Rhapsody's Mp3 only service - I repeat, MP3 ONLY. No other level of Rhapsody service will work with the newer Philips' GoGear's - which is funny, b/c Philips co-branded with Rhapsody on the newer players. Rhapsody is not your only choice, but you must ensure that the files you are downloading are in Mp3 format.

CRAIG MP4 plus video player- disk error message appears.


make sure the songs you download are right for your mp4 player because Limewire only plays mp3 songs. so i would go on the internet and find a music site that has mp4 songs

Well just off the cuff, its not that its MP4 as much as the fact that Itunes copyright locks its songs....I believe it's .m4a isn't it. There is absolutely a way to strip that off, but I'm afraid I can't tell you that part(hint google)...once in mp4 it can be played if your player supports it or you can batch rip mp4 to mp3 if that's all your player supports. Good Luck
