Windows media player won't work


Which operating system ? Which version of Media player ?
Though designed with Windows 7 in mind, Windows Media Player 11 (WMP 11) is fully compatible with Windows XP.

The trick is knowing which version of WMP 11 to download.
Different versions of the software exist not only for Windows 7, Vista, and XP, but also for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows XP.

Additionally, WMP 11 is only compatible with XP if it is using Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3. Before downloading the appropriate installation file, you will need to verify which version your system requires.

Open the "Start" menu.
Open "My Computer."

Click "Help", then select "About Windows."
This will display a window with system information.

Find the listing that specifies your Service Pack. If you are operating without Service Pack 2 or 3, you will need to install one (see Resources).


Open the "Start" menu and click "Run." Within the text field, type "winmsd.exe."

Click "OK." Select "System Summary."
Find the heading labeled "Item."

Under this heading should be the word "Processor."
The value associated with "Processor" will determine which version of Windows XP you are running.

If the value begins with "x86," you are running a 32-bit version.
If it begins with "ia64" or "AMD64," then you are running a 64-bit version.

Download the Windows Media Player installation file that matches your version of Windows (see Below).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/windows-media-player

Open the file once it has finished downloading.
This will launch the installation wizard.

Follow the onscreen instructions to install WMP 11.
The program should now run normally.
How to Fix Windows Media Center

Windows Media Center is the home entertainment hub on a Windows computer.
With Media Center, you can play live television, songs, DVDs and slideshows.

It is preinstalled on Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows Vista Home Premium/Ultimate Edition and Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions.

From time to time, users run into issues trying to play audio or video files, or with an extender connected to Media Center.

Extenders are devices that allow you to "extend" the Media Center onto a TV screen or larger display.

The Xbox 360 gaming console is an example of an extender.
Launch Windows Media Center from your computer's Start menu.

Scroll down to "Music" on the Media Center home screen.
Select "Music library."

If you find an empty folder under "Music Library," navigate to the folder on your hard drive that stores your music file and add it to Media Center's library.

If the problem isn't an empty folder, look at the file extension on the music file that won't play. Media Center can't play files with unknown or incompatible extensions.

If you find a questionable extension, skip that file. Click once on another file with a different extension, one you know is compatible with Media Center, and then click "Open" to test if you can play that one.

Media Center will play MP3, CDA, WAV and other music file formats.
Open Windows Media Player from the Start menu if you receive a codec error while trying to play either audio or video files.

If you open the file in Media Player, the codec will download automatically.
You should then be able to play the file in Media Center.

Troubleshoot your firewall settings if a Media Center extender doesn't work.
You'll have a problem using an extender if Windows Firewall blocks it.

Go to "Control Panel" from the Start menu and double-click on "Windows Firewall."
Click on "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall."

Click to check "Media Center Extenders."
Click on "Apply."

Check external speaker cables to make sure they're connected if you can't hear any sound. Check the computer's volume settings by clicking on the "VOL+" icon at the bottom right corner of the main Media Center screen to make sure the volume is not turned off or down too low.

You may need to reconfigure your speakers if you're having volume or sound issues.
Scroll down to "Tasks" in the Media Center home screen and select "Settings."

Click on "General" and select "Windows Media Center Setup."
Click on "Set Up Your Speakers."

Follow the on-screen prompts to reconfigure your speakers.

How to conect to pc


Here's how you do it.
Plug in the Philips GoGear to your computer. Use a USB cable to make the connection so you can begin synchronizing your music collection.
Start Windows Media Player. Depending on how your computer is set up, this program may start automatically when you make the connection with the MP3 player

Find the Sync tab in the media player window. Click on this tab and open the Sync screen. The Sync screen has two panes. The left pane is for the music collection on your computer; the right pane is for the Philips GoGear
Choose the songs from your collection that you want to add to the GoGear's memory. Check the boxes that are presented by each song title.
Click the "Start Sync" button. The files from your computer are being copied onto your GoGear MP3 player.
Wait for the sync to complete. You can monitor the progress in the "Windows Media Player" window.
Close the media player program. Unplug your Philips GoGear from the computer.
Thanks

Kworld pc to TV - avi does not show on TV screen


This turned out to be due to weirdness in my laptop's onboard graphics card. If I set the external monitor to display the way an external monitor usually does, as a clone of the laptop screen, the videos show up blank. But if I set it as dual-screen (extend my desktop to this monitor) and drag the video app onto the second monitor, it works fine.

Auto deleting songs we wanted there argghhhhh!


If you are using Windows Media Player to synchronise the MP3 player, you need to change the Sync settings, from auto to manual.

If the Sync option is set to Automatic, then Windows Media Player will synchronise your PC and your player, so they have the same tracks. Unfortunately, if a track is deleted from the PC or the MP3 player, then Media Player will delete it from the other.
However, Media Player may have only deleted the tracks from its library, and not from the PC. If you go to My Documents ----> My Music, you can see if the files are still there.

The Manual sync setting allows you to drag and drop files from the Media Player library on to your player as you wish.

Assuming you are using Media Player, connect the MP3 player to the PC.

Open Windows Media Player.

Right-click the Sync tab and select Tools -----> Options.

Click on the Devices tab and select your player from the list then click properties.

In the window that pops up, click on settings, then click the button next to manual to change from auto.

Click on Finish, then close the other windows by clicking on Apply or Ok, until you are back to the main Media Player screen.

You should now be able to transfer your tracks manually.

If this doesn't work, give more details, including make and model of player, and the software you are using for transfer, and I'll try to help further.

I have a new sa4315/97 which was set up last night, transferred files ok and worked well. Plugged it into the computer this morning and the device manager couldn't find it and to run the repair option. ...


Sounds like corrupt firmware.

Run Philips Device Manager, and select the repair option.

Press and hold [PLAY / PAUSE] on the player whilst connecting to the PC.

Continue to hold until Device Manager tells you otherwise.

Follow the on-screen prompts.

This puts the player into recovery mode. If Windows shows a Found new hardware window, select automatic installation, because the recovery driver is installed with Device Manager.

This will format the player and re-load the firmware.

NOTE: ALL TRACKS ON THE PLAYER WILL BE DELETED.
