Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

Open Question

Downloading RCA music management software (to use my new MP3 player) onto a HP PC that operates on Windows Vista. I'm told the software needs a Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 or higher --- after trying to download the service pack is not compatible.... searched for Windows Vista form of service pack and as it's a patch, it cannot be downloaded without base software..... what am I missing? What do I need to do to finally use my MP3???? Thanks, Evon Hanson bobevon@midwestinfo.net

SOURCE: RCA mp3 player software won't install on my computer.

Vista isn't supported by RCA at this time.  Vista is junk, unfortunately (might get better next year when the first Service Pack gets past the Release Candidate phase).  

That's why lots of folks "downgrade" to XP or just get a Mac (I've done both!)

You would have to go on the site and download the software for Windows 2000 ( I saw they have a version for Philips Manager for other versions of Windows)

SOURCE: I have Gateway 98 Windows

It appears that you are using Windows 98 as your operating system, if this is the case it is not compatible with the newer Ipod software. The new Ipod's require at least Windows XP service pack 2, Vista, or newest Mac software. Here is a link to Apple's website so you can check the system requirements in the support section. http://www.apple.com/support/

For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

  • You will need USB cable .
  • It will be provided with your mp3 player.
  • Connect your RCA MP3 player to your computer with the USB cable that came with the player. Plug one end into the Opal player and plug the other end into your computer's USB port.
  • Open the Rca's USB flash drive. Click "Start." Click "My Computer." Click the "USB Mass Storage Drive."
  • Open another "My Computer" window, and locate the music that you wish to download onto your RCA MP3 player. Click "Start." Click "My Computer." Click "My Documents." Click "My Music."
  • Drag and drop the music files you wish to download onto your mp3 player's "Internal Storage" folder (for Windows Vista) or the "Media" folder (for Windows XP).

  • Enjoy the songs....

    Hope it will be helpful...

    How do i put songs onto my mp3 player?


    Hello jaclyn22,

    There are two ways to transfer files to your RCA Peal TH1101 MP3 player. You can either use a MP3 manager software application (such as Rhapsody or Yahoo! Music Jukebox, which is included on the CD that comes with the player) or you can simply drag and drop MP3 files from your computer's hard drive into the player using Windows Explorer.

    The advantage of MP3 management software is that it allows you to organize your music collection, create playlists and purchase and download new music.

    The procedure for how to use these methods to load music onto the player can be found on pages 10-11 of the user manual. If you need a copy of the manual you can download it from this link to the RCA website: http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/images/buttons/media_icon_pdf.png

    Best regards,
    Ken

    RCA mp3 player software won't install on my computer.


    You don't need the installer- Windows Media Player will find the device, then click on "Sync" at the top to download the music to your player.

    Try music management software that still downloads from libraries like
    RealPlayer, Winamp. If you can load your device to it, can manage it through that.
