Make sure the songs are in the correct format - Mp3 would be best.

If they are all in the correct format, then reformat the player:
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

I bought a 16 gb touch pmp from china and it will not play music


Hi

if you detele all the music from the player and then put in 1 or 2 songs, then play those two songs? do they play?

If they play fine, put in more songs, its very likely that you have been sold a face capasity player, I got a 16GB player from china, it was actually 4GB, everything above 4GB would not play.

read this page, and test your player with the program:

My sansa won't play the music files


That is the problem with WMA's - they are glitchy, the licenses expire after a while, and the songs you paid for are no good if you allow your music service subscription to expire. You actually have to renew the songs through Rhapsody, delete the existing ones after your Sansa, and then re-sync them through Windows Media Player.

If you only download and transfer songs in mp3 format, they will never give you this problem.

Music will not load to player


Some music files are in a DRM-protected WMA or AAC format that does not allow you to transfer the songs to certain mp3 players, even though the songs will play fine on your computer. To get around this problem, make sure that you buy a subscription level that has transfer rights - or, better yet, only download songs that are in true mp3 format. Songs in mp3 format do not have copy-protection on them, so they will never give you error messages, headaches, etc.

Hi, I would like to actually put music on my player, but nothing is working, and only certain songs will sinc through windows media player and drag and drop doesn't work... Please Help!


That player is only capable of playing songs that are in certain formats. iTunes/AAC format is out of the question. The songs that you are trying to load are probably DRM-encrypted WMA's that don't have transfer rights. Either buy the transfer rights, or better yet - only download songs that are in pure mp3 format - they will never give you grief.

Not playing songs/ transferring to MP3 player on Rhapsody.


You probably have to redownload the songs again. Forget about the pictures, this player is pretty buggy, it's not worth it.

My pearl mp3 player says no files when i turn it on


The songs are in the wrong format - it does not recognize iTunes songs or DRM-encrypted songs which do not have "transfer rights" (many msuic services - especially free ones but also paid ones - give you WMA's that have "play rights" -i.e. you can play them on your computer; but if they do not have transfer rights, they will show up in your player, yet not play correctly/skip).

Transfer only songs that are in Mp3 Format and you will never have this problem.

I cant play the songs on my mp3 player


You can't directly transfer it by copy/paste and all that. You have to use their Sonic Stage program. Did you?
