The disk that came with it doesn't seem to work for me with Windows Vista. Instead you can use it as a mass storage device.

The movies are hard to find. Try looking at http://store.digiblue.com/category_s/32.htm. That is the wedsite for the manufacturer. Also try Disney shopping.com.

How to Put Songs on Disney Mix Max


The Disney Mix Max portable media player is capable of playing audio files in the MP3 format. It can also play videos formatted as WMV and display photos formatted as JPEG. You can convert audio files into MP3 using the Disney Mix Max software -- Mix It Plug-in. The plug-in works with Windows Media Player 10. This software CD came with the player and is not available online. To download music to the device, you can use Windows Media Player 10 or Windows.

Things You'll Need:

* USB cable
* Mix It Plug-In installation CD

Instructions


Convert Non-MP3 Files

Install Mix It Plug-In. Insert the Mix It Plug-in installation CD into the computer's optical drive. Click "Install Mix It Plug-In" when prompted.

Select to have the program saved to your desktop. Then double-click on the desktop icon -- "disneymixitplugin" to open the setup wizard. Click "Next" in the setup screen. Follow any additional setup prompts.



Open Windows Media Player 10 and create a playlist. To create a playlist, click "Library" and select "Now Playing." Drag songs from your computer to the "Now Playlist List" pane. Click the "Now Playing List" title to open the menu and select "Save Playlist As." In the "Save As" dialog box, enter a name for the playlist and select "Save."


Open Mix It Plug-In. Select "Yes" when asked to save analysis information for your music files. The software will analyze each track's compatibility with the Disney Mix Max player.


Press "Go!" to start the conversion process. Once the process is complete, an inactive "Go!" will be displayed. All music that has been converted is still listed in your Windows Media Player 10 playlist. You are now ready to download music to the player using Windows Media Player.

Go to the website of what you need to reload and if they have a search tab type in "Driver" or "Install files" They might have them available for download. Then just run the .exe file.

Lost Installation Disc


You don't need the disk that came with the Mix Max. It's just a plug in that interfaces with Windows Media Player and it completely optional. Without the software you can still use the Sync function in Windows Media Player to synchronize songs to the player.

Yep you sure can. Depending on the version of Windows Media Player that you have it's pretty easy to rip the CD and then sync it to your Mix Max. I recommend using Windows Media Player 11 as it's the easiest so I'd recommend you install that first. Then insert your CD into your computer, open Windows Media Player and click on the "Rip" button at the top. Select the tracks on the CD that you want to add to the player and click "Start Rip." Once the tracks have completed ripping click on the "Sync" button at the top right of Windows Media Player. Then just drag the tracks from the library on the left to the sync list on the right and click "Start Sync."

Disney mix max problem


Connect your player to the USB port on your computer using the USB connector on the Mix Max. A 'MIX-MAX' window will appear in your My Computer folder which is the player's internal memory. To add more files and songs to your player simply drag and drop MP3 or WMA files from anywhere on your computer into the 'MIX-MAX' window.

For Windows XP, you can utilize Windows Media Player 10 software to convert music on an audio CD into MP3 or WMA format as follows:

Open the Windows Media Player 10 Browser, then click on the 'Rip' icon on the top tool bar. Insert a Music CD into the CD-ROM drive of your computer.
Click on the 'Tools' menu option at the top menu bar, then click on 'Options'; the Option setting menu will appear. Click on Rip Music and set the Rip music to the desired location on the newly ripped music (MP3 format or Windows Media Audio format). Adjust the audio quality as desired. When finished, click 'OK' to confirm the settings.
Click on the 'Rip Music' icon to start ripping the music to your computer.
When the music tracks are ripped; connect the player to your computer. Open the 'MIX-MAX' window and open the ripped music location window.
To add the transferred/ripped music file/songs to your player simply drag and drop the MP3 and/or WMA files into the 'MIX-MAX' window.
When the files are finished loading into the player, follow the 'Safely Remove Hardware' procedure as shown below.
Note: For Windows 98SE, Windows ME, and Windows 2000, please use the Windows Media Player 9 to convert music on an audio CD into MP3 or WMA format.

Error free 4mb of space to build music library and disney mix max won't play any songs?


The memory may be corrupt and it can't read the music files correctly. Open your My Computer icon and plug the player into your computer. You should see a new removable disk called Mix Max appear. Right click on the disk and choose Format from the pop up menu. At the Format window make sure that the File System is set to FAT32 and click Start. At the next window click OK to proceed. You'll then need to add the songs back to your player but it should correct the problem. When adding the songs to the player again make sure that you leave at least 4 megabytes of space available so it can create the library file.

How do you put movies dvds and videos on your mix max mp3 player?


Ok these are the directions from start to finish.

You need Prism Video Converter and Windows Media Encoder 9 series. You can google both and download for free. You use Prism Video Converter to convert AVI or whatever file to WMV and then use Windows Media Encoder 9 Series to convert the WMV file to a WMV9 file. I know its stupid but if you follow my directions it will work and it cheaper then buying the individual cartridges. Once you have these installed do the following.

Click and open up Prism Video Convertor.

Click to "ADD FILES" on top toolbar. Find and choose the movie you want to convert and double click on the movie and it will add it to the list. Add all the movies that you want to convert. Each one takes about an hour.

At the bottom choose a different output folder. Then scroll through the OUTPUT FORMAT tab at the bottom and choose. .WMV

Click on ENCODER OPTIONS and change everything to the following:
Video Compressor------ Windows Media Video 9
Video bit rate ------------- 4096
Sound Compressor ----- Windows Media Audio 9.2
Sound Format ------------ 128 kbps,48 kHz Stereo CBR

Press ok and then click on VIDEO OUTPUT OPTIONS and change everything to the following
Make sure that there is a check next to RESIZE VIDEO "Shrink or enlarge video to selected size."
Width---- 220
Height --- 176

Make sure that there is a check next to CHANGE FRAMERATE
30.00

Click on OK and then CONVERT when the movie is finished you can move on to the next step

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

STEP 2

Open Windows Media Encoder 9

click on COVERT A FILE and press OK

Then choose your source file ( the movie you just converted with Prism)

Then Choose a new output file like make a new folder and name it MIX MAX MOVIES and click ok

On the next screen just press ok. Don't worry about the setting at this point because we will change them later.

Name the movie. and click ok and FINISH

Once the converter starts press the STOP button on the top toolbar., its RED, a window will pop up, click CLOSE to close the window. Then at the top of the converter click on the PROPERTIES tab. A window will pop open. Click on the COMPRESSION tab in the middle of several tabs. Click EDIT on the right hand side of the COMPRESSION window.

Now you should see 2 tabs. A GENERAL tab and a 259kbps tab

On the GENERAL TAB change everything to the following:

Make sure Video and Audio are both checked
Audio CBR Windows Media Audio 9.2
Video CBR Windows Media Video 9

Click the 259kbps tab and change to the following. ( If you see something I don't mention here THEN DON'T CHANGE IT )

Audio Format 128 kbps, 48 (NOT 44) kHz Stereo CBR
Video Size 220X176
Frame Rate 30
Key Frame Interval 2 sec
Video Bit Rate 384K (this is a little tricky. MAKE SURE IT SAYS 384K)
Buffer Size 5 sec
Video Smoothness 0
Decoder Complexity Simple

for a total of 521.02


CLICK APPLY and wait a few seconds for it to apply and then START ENCODING on top toolbar. When this movie is finished it will play on your MIX MAX, if it still says that the FILE IS NOT SUPPORTED then you have to go into the setting on the max and change the mass storage setting. There are 2 choices can't remember off hand what they are but choose the opposite one obviously and try again. Also you actually have to go to the movies or video tab on the max player not NOW PLAYING cuz that button is pointless.

any problems email me @ cera1756@gmail.com

I have converted many movies that have worked on both our players so if you follow these directions correctly there shouldn't be a problem.

ENJOY
