My GeneralPlus MSDC MP3 player shows to have music on the sd card but the player won't play

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :-

Synced music files won't play on phone

You don't have a codec for that particular format. Try changing the music file to a different format, like MP3.
A program like "Any Audio Convertor" should do that for you in Windows. There are many free windows apps that convert formats of music files. Or do a search for an Audio convertor on the Google play store, there are plenty of free apps. Typically music apps won't display music files they cann't play, it just saves clutter on their play list.

I cannt instal any jar n jad file because on scrine display show download unsurported file

If you are running Windows or MacOS, you will not be able to run those types of files. They are only supported by Unix/Linux. Try looking for a different version of the file to download.

How do you add music,videos, and photos to your mp3 player?

Check the specification of your MP3 player for the types of file format it can play for music, videos and photos. The most common file formats for MP3 players are mp3 for music, avi for videos and jpg for photos. You need to convert the music, video and photos into these file formats before copying them to you MP3 player via the supplied USB cable from your computer.
For instructions on converting music files, click on this link and follow my instructions :-
For photos, save them in jpg file format before copying them to your MP3 player.

I need to know how to get the music and picture to play at same time. Please help me as the wife thinks I'm stupid for not being able to figure this out LOL!! Thank you for your time in this matter. Mr....

Without knowing what model you have it's hard to answer.Most players only play 1 type of file at a time either photos or music.This is due to the way the limited software works.Audio/Video is another thing altogether because the file contains both video/photos and audio.Unless your player has the software to combine and play Music/Voice and Photos as in slideshows it won't work.Good Luck.

When you transfer the music or photos, place them in the correct folders in Root. Also, you can you should drop the files either directly in their respective folders (i.e. music in Music and photos and Photos) or you can put them in their own folders (i.e. Music\Artist or Music\Name of CD) do not go more than 2 folders deep. (while you can do Music\Artist you cannot do Music\Artist\Album).
