Songs from CDs won't play

I loaded some songs from CDs onto the Swimp3 player by dragging them from the CD folder onto the Swimp3 drive. They appeared in the drive and everything, but when I tried listening to my Swimp3, they wouldn't play. How can I get them to 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.

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.

I used to be able to get my swimp3 to work fine from my itunes, now even with the same songs as before it says there isn't enough space even though on screen the file is reading as empty? Does anyone know...


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

E250 SANSA MP3 - IVE NEVER DOWNLOADED MP3 FILES BEFORE....


I have this player and it drives me crazy, too.

I don't know if this will help delete what you don't want but plug the sandisk into your computer and open to view the contents. when you see the list of folders, at the top click on tools--then folder options--then view make sure "show hidden files and folders" is checked. click ok. then if you can see the folder you want to delete, highlight it and press the delete key on your keyboard. (if you want to save it, copy it to your hard drive instead). to put on a cd this may be a roundabout way but is fairly simple. put the cd in the computer, using windows media player rip it and save songs in a folder on the hard drive. save as mp3 (or wma should work, too.) you can read on the net how to do this. once the songs are in the folder, close media play. go to the folder and the hard drive and copy it to the sandisk . you can see on your computer if it is there. unplug from the computer and hopefully you can find it and play the songs. good luck!

Songs don't want to synchronize onto my device


First you need to sync device before adding songs. First plug in device, than make sure computer notices player. Than go into media player or music folder and sync device. Than you can either create a sync list from there, or you can drag songs from music folder into your player folder.

Open start menu, my computer, E,F, or G drive should have player on it. You can drag songs from music folder into this drive folder and they will be automatically added

Got to help with computer


  1. Connect the USB cable to the back side of the device
  2. Connection the USB side of the cable into the USB port on your computer
  3. If you are using a Windows PC, you can locate your swimp3 drive in 'My Computer'
  4. If you are using a MAC, you will see a new icon appear on your desktop 'NO NAME'
  5. If you have MP3s on your computer you can drag and drop files onto your swimp3 drive
Once you have all the songs loaded onto your device, eject your device and enjoy listening to music underwater.

Cant load songs


the best way for that is to read your manual.

MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Windows XP SP1
Windows Media Player 10
Intel Pentium class PC or higher
CD-ROM drive
USB 2.0 port required for hi-speed transfer
CONNECTING AND TRANSFERRING
Connect to your Computer
1. Connect the small USB Cable Connector to the USB port on your computer, and then plug the larger
Cable Dock Connector in to your Sansa c200 port.
2. Once connected to computer, it should be detected by the operating system automatically and is
shown as an additional drive called “Sansa c200”.
SANSA MEDIA CONVERTER
You will need to use Sansa Media Converter to transfer photos to your Sansa c200. Insert your SanDisk
CD and select Sansa Media Converter to install it to your PC. Then you can load your personal photos
onto your Sansa c200 by using Sansa Media Converter.

TRANSFER MUSIC
To transfer music to your Sansa c200:
1. Connect Sansa c200 to the computer.
2. Drag and drop files from your computer to Sansa c200 by using a variety of music software
programs to transfer/synchronize your files.
3. In MTP mode as long as the files are WMA or MP3, they can be dragged into the Media folder.
Otherwise, they can be dragged into the Data folder (these files will not appear on the player).
4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.
