    I download books from public library and use Overdrive Media to transfer to my player. I used to get the "synchronize ...." error mssge, but I don't recall what I did to overcome and I could listen and download regularly for months. Now I am back to square one getting the mssg and cannot listen to my digital books. I don't know where to start for remedy.

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.

Its saying music lock


sometimes mp3 player will say that if the song you put on them is copyright protected

if you downloaded it from itunes or urge they only sell protected copies of their music. stores like rhapsody mp3 store sell unprotected copies.

check your ripping software as well, sometimes in your option for ripping the music into a mp3 you can check a little box to protect it, if you did it usually only works on that player and devices synced to it

hope this helps!

Bought a gpx8gb digital media player for my daughter for christmas. I have downloaded her cd's into itunes library. Now how do I get those songs onto her media player?



Check to see that when you rip a music CD that your music is not copy protected. The RIP function in your Windows Media Player will allow you to convert the music CDs you have purchased into either an MP3 or a WMA format.

To adjust the copy protection setting on your ripped music files,
  1. Open the Tools tab at the top of your Windows Media Player.
  2. Select Options and then select the Rip Music tab.
  3. Choose the type of music file as well as the quality with which you would like to save the music. (Your GPX player has the ability to play music files in both the MP3 and WMA format.)
  4. Make sure to use MTP when transferring copy protected WMA files.

If you are using Windows Vista with Windows Media Player 11, you will need to follow these instructions.
Note: You will be able to download purchased/subscribed songs to the unit.

  1. Start Windows Media Player 11 and then connect your unit to your computer. If you have not set up synchronization between your computer and this device, the Device Setup Wizard starts.
  2. In Device Setup - Configure Sync, write a name for your mp3 player.
  3. Click Finish. The window closes and the Sync feature in the Player is displayed.
  4. From the left pane of this Sync feature, you can select from Playlists or Library and you will see the content of these folders in the center pane.
  5. Select the songs or entire albums from the center pane.
  6. Drag these songs or albums into the Sync List, which is the right pane of the Sync feature.
  7. Click the Start Sync button on the Sync List pane.
  8. Repeat steps 4-7 for any other items that you want to copy to your unit.
If you are using Windows XP with Windows Media Player 10, you will need to follow these instructions.
Note: You will be able to download purchased/subscribed songs to the unit.
  1. Start Windows Media Player 10 and then connect your unit to your computer. If you have not set up synchronization between your computer and this device, the Device Setup Wizard starts.
  2. In the Device Setup Wizard, select Manual.
  3. Click Finish. The wizard closes and the Sync feature in the Player is displayed.
  4. Select the Library option. On the left pane select Sync List.
  5. From the left pane you can select All Music or My Playlists and you will see the songs located within these folders in the center pane.
  6. Select the songs from the center pane, and drag them to the Sync List.
  7. Click the Start Sync button on the Sync List pane.
  8. Repeat steps 4-7 for any other items that you want to copy to your unit.
  9. Good Luck, I hope this helps
  10. Please rate me, Thank you

Can't seem to transfer music files to my new MP610-2G


The cobyt player is completely incompatible with iTunes. If you have songs that are in mp3 format, you can use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs to your Coby. If your songs are already in AAC (iTunes) format, you can use a free program like Media Monkey to convert UNprotected AAC files to mp3 format so that they will be usable with your Coby. Media Monkey is not capable of converting protected files.

Music not found


The songs you are trying to load to the Mp3 player are not compatible with the Nextar - a good test for this would be to connect your Nextar to the PC, open Windows Media Player, and click the Library tab, then the Sync tab - if a little blue "i" appears next to the song, it will not work with your Nextar. In fact, any song that is not in mp3 format or unprotected WMA (very few WMA's are unprotected unless you Ripped them directly from CD) will not play in the Nextar.

Converting wma's to mp3 costs money unless you are getting the songs from an actual CD. Better to get an mp3-only music service like Limewire, Rhapsody Mp3, etc.

If you are using Windows Vista with Windows Media Player 11, you will need to follow these instructions.
Note: You will be able to download purchased/subscribed songs to the unit.

1. Start Windows Media Player 11 and then connect your unit to your computer. If you have not set up synchronization between your computer and this device, the Device Setup Wizard starts.
2. In Device Setup - Configure Sync, write a name for your mp3 player.
3. Click Finish. The window closes and the Sync feature in the Player is displayed.

Sansa MP3 M240 No volume when playing songs, says to synch


Where did you download the songs? Napster?Rhapsody? Any online music stores? Try synchronizing them using their software. If you have ripped songs from a cd you may want to rip them again and before ripping them check this option on your windows media player software. Tools > Options then under RIP MUSIC remove the check mark that say's Copy Protect Music or choose the file format as MP3. Then format the device using the windows media player software(for version 10 = click on the sync tab then choose the pencil like icon on the far right, for version 11 = right click on the sync tab choose the player and choose format) use after doing that rerip the songs using the windows media player software.
