Make sure the Philips Device Manager has been installed, and run it.
Press and hold the [VOL+] button on the player whilst connecting to the PC. Device Manager will go into repair mode. Follow the on-screen prompts. This will format the player, removing all files, and re-flash the firmware.

When finished you will need to re-start the player once, and a second time when it shuts down.

Open Windows Media Player. Go to the Tools menu and select options. (You may need to right click the top bar to access the Tools menu.)
Click the Rip Music tab. Select the file type you wish to use (SA6025 supports .MP3 and .WMA)
Make sure the "Copy protect music" box is not ticked.
Click apply then ok to return to the main program.

Insert your CD, and select the tracks you wish to transfer and click "Rip".

Your CD will be converted and saved in the My Music folder.

When it has finished transfer the files to your player using the Sync option.

Download a current version of windows media player on your pc and open it. when it opens it will ask if you want to search for music on your pc - choose yes or ok. The media player will locate any music files on your pc and bring them into it so you can see them. use the "sync" function to convert the file formats to mp3, then connect your player to your pc using the cable and transfer the music to it. the sync function should convert the files to mp3 format first and then when they are converted - it should sync or transfer them to a useable version on your mp3 player.. Be patient, the sync feature is sometimes slow.

File Format not supported


You have to be sure that the files are all mp3 files, or wma (windows media audio). Check the rip settings in Windows Media Player. If you rip CD's in a format other than mp3 or wma you will not be able to sync the files to your player. I would suggest sticking with mp3 - as mp3 files are compatible with any player, including ipods.

File transfer Problem


Ok, I figured out a solution on my own.

Remarkably simple - all I did was reformat the player again and then reinstall windows media player.

Mp3 player severe help


There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Not enough room for music database please free 4 mb


The device needs at least 4MB of free space.

You need to keep deleting files until there is 4MB less than the total capacity of the device.

Its not syncing because the device is too full.

If removing the 4MB doesnt work. Try formatting the device thru My Computer>Device Name (m200)>Right Click and select FORMAT.



Best of Luck.

Can't put new music on player


Hi Raxter. As long as you can save files to the player (seems like pictures and video work just fine, right?), then the player is not experiencing any corruption or firmware issues. Perhaps the issue lies with the songs you're synchronizing to the player. There are several reasons why you would encounter errors when synchronizing songs to the player: (1) File type is not supported by the player -- MP3 (with a bit rate of 128 Kbps) and WMA files (with a bit rate of 64 Kbps) are the only supported music file type. MP3 music normally converted via iTunes is not guaranteed to work on this player. (2) Windows Media Player 10 is the only tested Microsoft player version to work on this player (trust me, I've had my bouts with other Windows Media Player versions lol.) Version 11 works, but I have had issues with the player experiencing errors when syncing songs. (3) If the songs are licensed or subscription, it's probably best that you use the subscription provider's media software to "synchronize" the songs into the player (like Rhapsody or Napster player. Music Match often causes the player to "restart" -- I have no idea why, better call them). Some music providers are unable to actually support the player (or recognize it for that matter). It would be best if you contacted the subscription provider to give you instructions on how to synchronize the songs from their website. If your songs are non-licensed songs (like songs from ripped audio CDs, Limewire, etc), then it's best to switch the player's mode to MSC and transfer the songs by simply "Dragging and Dropping" or "Copy/pasting" the songs to your player. To switch your player's mode to MSC, navigate the Menu as follows: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode I hope that would resolve the problem you're encountering with your player. There is another way to reset your player, but I'm hoping these options would actually let you transfer files successfully. Let me know the results.

My mp3 wont let me convert songs, when i sync on wmp it says "error"


When i had this problem, i went to where it said Sansa e250 with the picture right clicked and it said fromat, this let me put my songs on the device but when it formats it everything on the device is deleted and you have to put it all back on, so if you're a patient person this the road to go on.
