Hi elspethje,

If you are using a MAC, you will need to empty out your trash to clear up the space you made from deleting songs. You can then reload your new songs for it to work properly.

Let me know if you have any further problems

I haven't seen a similar problem, however, my first suggestion would be to try the RESET function.

Second would be to make sure you didn't load the songs into folders on the device - they will only work in the root directory.

Last, I would look for any NON-music files or folders. If you have accidentally transferred other files that could keep it from playing

Remember though, the Swimp3 Players are compatible with iTunes, however, they can't play any AAC / encrypted songs.

Good Luck

The music player of my Nokia 7210 Supernova isn't working because when I try to open it, it always say that "Not Enough Memory" even though I have so much of free space in memory card


Not Enough Memory error suggests that you dont have enough space to load the program into the Memory. Check Phone's Memory (It is about 30 MB total) if there is stuff in Phone's Memory then shift it over to Memory Card and cleanup the space in Phone's Memory.
It will definitely resolve this issue.
If even after wiping stuff from Phone's Memory doesn't work, reset the phone.

SwiMP3 (128 MB) MP3 Player: I have the original first version of the Swimp3 pl...


This could actually be an easy fix. If you have any files on the player that are not WMA or MP3 files, or that you've stored your music in folders - either way it could simply stop the drive from playing.

Incompatible Music Files: If you have loaded a music file that is not compatible, it simply won't play. The SwiMP3 player works with mp3 or wma files, but not aac (like from iTunes).

Solution: Remove the incompatible files. Convert your other music files to mp3 or wma, and if you are importing your songs direct from itunes, you'll need to convert them to mp3s first.



Incompatible NON-Music Files: An MP3 player is similar to a Thumb Drive or Flash Drive because it can hold any kind of file that will fit in the drive's capacity. However, if you have loaded an incompatible file - including JPEGs, Cover Art, Word Docs, anything that is not an MP3 or WMA file, the player simply can't translate it into music.

Solution: Remove the incompatible files, leaving only your mp3 or wma files in your root directory.



Folders: The mp3 player is not able to open folders and play music files stored inside, to the Swimp3 player the folder is simply an un-playable file.

Solution: Open the folders, move or copy the music files into the root directory (remember, mp3 or wma - not aac), then delete the folders.

I hope you find this helpful.

Songs from CDs won't play


Nick,

This is an easy fix. Most Mp3 players, the Aqua Mp3 player included, need to have the files in an mp3 format - not the CD format.

Simply convert your CD to Mp3 files on your computer using a software like Media Monkey http://www.mediamonkey.com/ (which has a free version). Once they are converted, then you can simply drag and drop them on to your Aqua Waterproof Mp3 player.

If you're using a Mac, then you can use iTunes to import the CD and then convert the files to mp3 within iTunes.

I hope this helps you get in the water and swimming to music soon.

How do I load songs from itunes onto the 1gb go


Ensure the sum of the file you want to copy is less than 996 Mb and the go gear has nothing else on it. Ensure it is not write protected.

Go to every folder in the my stuff and multimedia and see if you need to delete stuff to make more space...you may not have saved to the memory card but rather the internal memory. Worked for me.

My sansa is messed up


It is referring to the "database", or the menus on the device. (i.e. - songs titles, music, artists) It needs at least 6MB of free space on the device to create this. If you freed up what you think is 6MB, it may not be enough. Even though you have a 2GB player, there is only 1.85 of usable space on it. So try deleting some more tracks. If not, format the device and start over. Right click on the device in My Computer and select format. Best of Luck.

I had the same problem and it took me while to figure it out, but I did. Thanks to a website telling me how to re-format the whole thing. I went to "my computer" and right clicked on "removeable device" and clicked on format. It should read "fat" not "fat32" then I clicked "start" and then when I loaded stuff on it worked. Good luck!
