Also, what personally happened to me was that I had accidentally taken the RCA Product Detection off "Start with Windows" when I was cleaning up ****.

If you don't have the RCA Product Detection program running, your mp3 player will keep disconnecting and reconnecting.

It worked for me at least. Let me know if this helps.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

I can't download music files from my computer to my Opal RCA MP3 player.


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

I have recently bought a Phillips gogear 8g mp3 player and I just want to ask (since I don't have a cd software or a manual that came with the product) how do I add songs into my mp3?


you can simply use drag and drop method to transfer music from your computer to your MP3 player. You can also use Windows media player 10 to transfer music. Make sure to use version 10,. Version 11 doesn't work.

Transfer music via Windows Media Player 10:

1.Hook up your GoGear to the PC via the supplied USB cable.
2.Plug your GoGear into a power outlet with the supplied AC adapter/charger.
3.Launch Windows Media Player 10.
Note: Once the device is connected to the computer, all audio or radio playback will stop.
4.Check and make sure that the Create folder hierachy on device option is enabled in Windows Media Player. Go to Tools>Options. Select the Devices tab and then highlight GoGear Audio and click Properties
5.Click "OK" to close the windows.
6.Click the "Sync" tab.
7.In the "Items to Copy" pane, from the drop-down list, click the playlist, category, or other item that you want to copy.
8.Click the check boxes next to any files you want to copy.

9.In the "Items on Device" pane, from the drop-down list, click on PhilipsGoGear for where to copy files to.
10.Click the "Start Sync" button.
11.The Player verifies that there is sufficient storage space on the device to copy the selected files. If there is sufficient space, the files are converted (if necessary) and copied to the portable device.
12.Repeat steps 2-5 for any other items that you want to copy to your portable device.
13.Once the transfer is completed, close Windows Media Player.

14.Unplug the GoGear from the PC and enjoy the music on your GoGear.

Mp3


if it doesn't sync, don't worry just open the folder where the music files are stored on your computer, connect your Sony Walkman to your computer and highlight the music files you want to add to the Walkman and select (copy these files) a windows will open for you to select the place you want to copy to, select your mp3 player and click on copy to copy the selected music to your Walkman

NOTE: if you Sony Walkman has a specific folder for music files, you need to move the songs you copied from your hard drive's music folder to the music folder on your mp3 player for the player to recognize the songs in order to play.

Just installed nero 7 software on my comp. and really messed up all my music files. all my saved files have lost there names & are know numbered tracks of nero media type. Same applys to media i...


hi sir,

by default, you have a music player installed on your system or maybe using windows media player before nero 7 was installed, unluckily, when you did installed your nero 7 it has it's own music player. by the time nero finishes the installation, nero prompts you what media types you are using, by default, nero had selected it's own files types...thats why your music compilation and playlist messed up.

in order to get things back, just right click any music files you have, go to properties, click change for types of file then select the application you want play with your music.
