I dont know how to put music in my r4i


Your friend is right in part, if you want to put music on your r4i you can, if you drop and drap the music you want onto your sdcard like you would games, you can keep them in mp3 form, i did this for my grandaughter, when i put them on the card i dropped them onto the moonshl folder, then when you turn the dsi on you go to the moonshl folder and you can find the music their and play it, when your friend said you have to convert to aac files thats if you put them on a sdcard on the side of the dsi insert them, if you do that you have to convert to aac, the dsi will not play mp3 files, but it will if you put them on the games card and drop them onto the moonshl folder, if you want to convert your files for the sdcard on the side of the dsi, what you have to do is download itunes if you have not allready, put the music you want to play on your nsi into a playlist on itunes, click on the song then click on where it says create aac version, then when you do that you will see itunes converting it, when you have done that with all the songs you want, right click on each track that itunes has converted and click on where it says show in windows explorer, then when you have all the songs in windows explorer folder drop and drag them all to your sdcard, then put the card into the side slot of your dsi, turn on your dsi, and find the sd menu and their you will find your music, hope this helps you.

Is there anyway to upgrade the Nextar MA933A MP3 Player


free software to convert m4a to mp3 files:

Try the dbpoweramp music convertor.
Run it > Choose file

http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central.htm
That page is the codec page; choose which one you want, in your case:
http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central-mp4.htm
for the mp4 codecs (i.e. aac).

Note: if you download songs from the iTunes Music Store, they will be protected files, ending in .m4p (p for protected). It is quite within your legal right to unprotect these if you so wish: http://hymn-project.org/ that program will do that for you. You can't convert songs that are protected.

A little practice and it'll be second nature :)
Good Luck!

What a PAIN! good luck!

I can't download the music to mp3


The songs you are trying to load are in the wrong format - converting them to mp3 format will do the trick:

For every type of file other than WMA, the format error is pretty straightforward. You are trying to load a completely incompatible file format that is not recognized by the Mp3 player. To give you an example, there are currently no Philips GoGear Mp3 players that will load songs from the iTunes music service. The reason they will not transfer or play correctly is that the GoGear is that iTunes gives the users their songs in .AAC format. The GoGear cannot recognize .AAC format. To resolve this problem, you will have to convert the AAC song file into Mp3 format, or some other format that the GoGear recognizes (Note to the law-abiding: converting a copyright protected file into another format might be illegal. If you are concerned, I would just re-download the same song in Mp3 or another recognized file format – this will require a separate music service other than iTunes, in this example).
