    I can't listen to the music I downloaded on my RCA MP3 Player because it says in quote,"to continue listening to your subscription tracks, please sync your device". Can you help me?

If the songs are from a music service, you will have to upgrade the subscription to get "transfer rights"

Archos 20d vision mp3 player 4gb can put music from windows media on [cd] to mp3 but it as a question mark and there is no sound have ripped and synced and other music wont play continuess

Give up mate,
This MP3 player is total garbage, many MP3 just wont play and the Archos Service can\'t help.
Archos does not provide an firmware update for this device, even if is poorly working.
So, this product is useless as the Archos service.
Don\'t buy any Archos products or you will regret.

Why wont this sync with my itunes library?

Hi, Is the SanDisk Sansa Fuze compatible with iTunes? In some ways, it is. Unfortunately, the Sansa Fuze and iTunes don't always play nice together. You'll have to get a few workarounds to make these two sync together.

The SanDisk Sansa Fuze and iTunes

The SanDisk Sansa Fuze is natively a Windows product. You should be able to sync it with Windows Media Player automatically. However, not everyone owns a Windows PC and even if they do, they might store more music in their iTunes library.

If this is the case for you, you might find it helpful to be able to sync your Sansa Fuze with your iTunes music library. Bear in mind that you won't be able to sync apps, games or any other iTunes products that are not formatted for use on a Sansa Fuze.
Using iTunes with the Sansa Fuze

So, is the SanDisk Sansa Fuze compatible with iTunes? If you download the right software, it is. Apple offers a free download that works with many other non-iPod MP3 players, Sansa Fuze included.

Unfortunately, this product only runs on a Mac operating system. However, if you own a Mac, this is great news because it means you can still use your Fuze without buying a Windows PC.

If you use a Windows PC and want to transfer your iTunes music to the Fuze, don't lose hope - there's a way to do that, too.
Syncing the Sansa Fuze with iTunes

If you're using a Mac, visit this link for Apple's free software download. It comes directly from Apple, so you can be assured that it's spyware-free.

Install the software on your Mac. You need Mac OS X 10.4 or higher as well as iTunes version 8 or higher.

Plug your Sansa Fuze into the Mac and wait for the software to open. You should see a listing of your iTunes music library pop open in a window. You're then given the option to sync as many songs as possible onto your Fuze.

The syncing process is similar to syncing an iPod. Don't unplug the device until it's finished.
Syncing the iTunes Library in Windows

You can sync your Sansa Fuze with iTunes using a script called the Automator, found here. Once downloaded, open the script under your "Downloads" folder on your "C:" drive and find a string of characters that looks like this: "/Users/richard/Music/*.mp3".

Replace the name "Richard" with your own username. Don't change anything else. Select "File," "Save" from the menu.

Select the Automator icon with the right click button on your mouse and choose "Open with," "Automator Runner." If working properly, this should automatically sync the music from iTunes with your Sansa Fuze.

If that doesn't work, go into your iTunes library and highlight any DRM-protected tracks that you purchased from iTunes. Right-click and select "Make MP3 Version." These should now be compatible with the Automator.

This sounds like more or less of a "hack" than a solution, but this might be the only way to sync music from iTunes to your Fuze using Windows. If all else fails, make MP3 versions of the songs as shown above, then navigate to your iTunes folder where those files are stored. Then drag and drop these into Windows Media Player, where they should sync right onto your Fuze.

Hope that helps..

I have an ipod touch. I can't sync music from iTunes to my Ipod Touch for some reason. I cant figure out why!!! can you help me? There is nothing on my 8.0 version of itunes.

To automatically sync, you have to choose the setting "automatically sync." If you want to sync but not automically, you click the "sync" button after putting a check in the box in front of the content you want to sync. Or, you can manage content manually. Syncing becomes a huge waste of time anyway, once the bulk of content is on the device. With the device recognized by iTunes, on the summary page choose "manually manage music and videos." Drag and drop to add or right click and choose Delete to remove.

Wont sync to windows media player

so, im running into a terrible restarting problem after syncing, most likely because of corrupted music files from limewire or actually i was thinking it might be an excess of songs. even though windows media player 11 wont say filled (after sync) I have a feeling that the restarting issue (my phone is practically flashing on, then restaring one time after another) might be from not having space on the card for updates? haha im no phone tech, just conceptualizing. this is my problem. if it is yours too, take the music back off your card or just remove your card altogether and your phone will be just fine. if you cant take the music back off the card, just format the card. ANYWAYS
to use windows media player 11 to sync to env3
plug in usb from phone to computer, i know its a big step
either- select music from the sync menu when the phone asks you
or - go into the my music folder and press the right tab button from the inner keypad that says sync.
then after your phone hooks up to your computer and is identifiable in the My Computer menu under LG VX9200, open windows media player, it might take a while to read the phone on the media player, then drag mysic into the window on the right hand side of the windows media screen. I had trouble when i clicked the sync tab on the top of the player screen, (you know, the tabs at the top that show now playing, library rip burn and sync) so i'd suggest not clicking the tab, and when device setup pops up, click next and finish. if your wmplayer screen freezes when you click finish and your device name comes up with two squares for its name, restart the process,
Cancel sync on your phone, get back to the sync button on your phone, and do it again, this time, make sure wmplayer is closed, then open it after your computer recognizes the phone. if the computer shows the name of the device as two squares, change the name, it seemed to help me. then.... well yeah just drag music into the window, its best to make a playlist that is named sync list..........mmmm better yet, that might be why mine is restarting, because the entire library is dragged from one playlist, but it doesnt syc like that....... damn nevermind. yeah just drag songs onto your phone and click start sync when you are finished, start sync will be located under the list of songs you create in the sync list window k? that was the bvest way i figured it out, except for my restarting issue, but like i said... limewire loves me. good luck, and help me out with my problem if you have any idea whats wrong, enV3 restarts after sync with micro sd card.

MP3 Player wont let me listen to music it says it has on it

If you already formatted the player itself, the songs itself may be in the wrong format. This player doesn't read iTunes files, for instance - it will look like they have transferrred, but you will not be able to play them.

Help, i cannot put music on my iphone

I have the same issue. The best workaround is to create a playlist in iTunes specifically for the iPhone, and just have the phone sync that list.
