Push ctrl+alt+delete on your keyboard to bring up Windows Task Manager. Check application's to see if your media player is listed there (for example if you were running Winamp, look for winamp in the applications). If there is nothing listed there check the processes tab for the name of your media player + ".exe". If you find it right click and click end process. If you either can't find it in that list or it does not shut down then keep the window open and follow these tasks: First know where the file is located (right it down). You can do this by right clicking it and going to properties, copy down the "c:\...\...\filename" location. From windows task manager click 'file' at the top left and click run. It should bring up a black dos program. Click the Windows Task Manager again and go to explorer.exe and end process. This should shut down whatever file is being run. Switch to the black dos program and type "del c:\...\...\filename". This should bring up a prompt where it will ask you if you are sure. If you are positive this is the right file then go ahead with the deletion. If it gives you an error then ask another question regarding booting into the dos system before windows comes up. If it does delete it (and it should except on rare occasions) then type in "windows" and it should bring back up explorer and you will be all set. Hope this works and it should work for any file that refuses to be deleted because its in use.

My Hitachi dmp860 player displays the error message "NO AUTHORITY" when trying to play wma files that I originally ripped from my own cds. Why is this and what can I do about it?


When you ripped them, you probably used Windows Media Player which will add copy protection by default if you don't set otherwise.

Either

- Re-rip as MP3
- Re-rip with copy protection off

It is easier to re-rip than to try to remove copy protection.

It wont play music. it keeps saying no file


: The reason your player says no files is because the files from I-tunes are in an unsupported format called MP4 or MPEG layer 4. The music formats that you MP3 Player supports are MP3, WMA or WAV files.



: Why do some of my MP3 files not play when transferred to the player?
A: First, make sure the Element MP3 player you are operating supports the MP3 file that you are attempting to play. Please reference www.elementelectronics.com to look up your model’s specifications.
Check to make sure there is no copy protection on your MP3 files. You can determine if the file is protected by right clicking on the file and selecting properties. In the properties window you can find whether the file has any copy protection placed on it. This normally happens while importing music files through Windows Media Player. To make sure that Windows Media Player does not copy protect music follow these steps.

1. From the Windows Media Player screen Click “Tools” on the menu bar at the top of your screen and select “Options”. If the menu bar does not appear, right click on the “Rip” button at the top of your screen and select “More Options”
2. Click on the “Rip Music” tab, uncheck “copy protect music”.
3. Click ok to save the new setting.

Wont copy songs to mp3 player because of write protection


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. Under this menu, you will be able to choose the type of music file as well as the quality with which you would like to save the music.
  4. Make sure the box next to Copy protect music is left unchecked.
Your GPX player has the ability to play music files in both the MP3 and WMA format. Make sure to use MTP when transferring copy-protected WMA files.

Sounds like the tracks you are trying to load are copy protected (DRM)

If you are using Windows Media Player, turn off the DRM protection as follows:

Right-click on the Media Player frame and select Tools then Options. (or just click Tools > Options if the file menu is in view)

Click on the Rip Music or Rip CD tab and remove the tick from the Copy Protect box.

Any CD's already ripped will need to be ripped again without the protection.

How do i remove write protection from my music so i can copy it onto my mp3 player?


I had this same problem with a cheapie mp3 I bought off of ebay. I read on another site to make sure that your player is not set to 'pause'. On this shuffle it's hard to tell so I pushed the pause/play button just once and then had absolutely no problems in copying music files or listening.

Others have said to flip a write-protected switch from on to off. But as far as I can tell mine had no such switch. Also have heard to format and start all over but I wasn't able to do that either.

So please try to push your pause/play button and try again.

Coby mp3 player problem


Write the songs to a CD (or a CDRW) first, then re-rip them to Windows Media Player/iTunes/whatever as mp3s, or unprotected WMAs.

Honestly it's easier to burn and re-rip than remove the copy protection. When you burn it to a CD, the DRM goes away, and you'll have a new file that actually plays on your player.

Playing a song?


Did you use your own cd's? If so, did you use Windows Media Player to copy (rip) them to your computer? Windows Media Player, by default, has "copy protect my music" selected. To remove this, in Windows Media Player select Tools>Options>Rip Music and un-check the copy protect my music mark. You will need to delete the music you already transferred, then re-copy the music without protection, then re-transfer them to your device. Best of Luck.
