If that is only a simple/usual reciever then you simply hook your laptop speaker out to any available line in of your receiver like aux, CD, DVD, video aux. but not the phono in please. you are just using the receiver as a simple amplifier for your laptop. is that what you need to know mam?

just post your comment if you have a different query. Regards/Reden

Denon dvd player and playing mp3


Check the user manual, is it able to play mp3 files? You've not mentioned the model number so, you could try going to the Denon Support pages:-

http://www.denon.co.uk/uk/support/pages/support.aspx

There you should be able to download a guide if needed and/or check whether there are any firmware upgrades to download for your player.

I cannot delete files from my philips gogear ariaz 16gb as it says write protected and when i change to msc to connect to computer so i can manage my folders, it automatically changes to mtp. also my files...


Hi maryseppanen
You can delet you files this way...the other problems may go away after you do this


BE SURE NOT TO DELETE YOUR FIRWARE, ONLY THE SONGS,FILES,ETC.
Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio
Books, Apps,etc. from MP3 Player/Ipod
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release,right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
BE CAREFUL and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player.

Hi I've downloaded flash in a zip file flashmp3player.zip and installed it like it mentioned in the help file I uploaded the file to my web server main directory but I got a problem playing the mp3's...


I set up flashmp3player at home on a Linux server and it played music fine when I loaded it through flashmp3player.html like you said. At home I'm able to access the mp3/ subdirectory but on your site I cannot:

I suspect your web host may be prohibiting access to files and/or directories with 'mp3' in the name. Try copying an mp3 to your web root directory and then downloading it - if access is denied then my theory is correct.

The 5500 doesn't recognize the files on my ipod, which are mainly cd's impoted to itunes, so i converted all the files to MP3 but it still isn't recognizing the files. what do i do?


Actually there are 2 possible solutions to your problem. When you plug in your Ipod or USB drive into the Denon HS5500 the machine will put a file on the drive called "Denon_DJ". This file needs to be deleted each time you add new mp3's to your ipod or usb device or your new files wont be shown.
The second has to do with what type of mp3 you are using and what sample rate it was created with.
For instance I record music with my computer and keyboards. I like to record in 96KHZ because it sounds so much nicer than 44.1k. Well the Denon wont read anything created with a sample rate higher than 44.1K . I downloaded a song from a DJ friend that was recorded in 48KHZ and made into a 196k MP3 file. The Denon wouldn't play it because it is not 44.1. Check your manual or check online.. the Denon reads 44.1k 320kbs and lower files only.. (Bad Denon)
You may also want to avoid what are called Variable Bit Rate files. Most files you download online are ripped at a variable bit rate. The Denon will play variable bit rate Mp3's .. But you will not be able to save cue points or save memos to the system. I found this out the hard way. So. I took all the files I had created that were VBR and put them into Audacity with the Lame MP3 plugin and set the bitrate to 320kbs and now I can save memos.. But everytime I put the USB flash drive into my pc and put new songs on I have to delete the Denon_DJ folder.. Its sad too because thats where the HS5500 stores it's playlist files... :( Bad Denon. They should have asked me to write the software.. xD
I hope that helped you..

Ipod says it's playing but the songs won't play


Hi,
Does it stop on the same song every time? If so, it may be because the file is corrupted or the wrong format. Try deleting the file from iTunes and reloading it. Hope that helps. Check the file format by right clicking on the file and then clicking 'properties'. Check to be sure that it is mp3 or a file that the iPod will play. Hope that helps.
