    Mine is doing the same thing... I can see the song titles but it won't let me play them. Is there any way I can fix this without using wmp 10? t apparently isn't compatible with my version of windows. I have wmp 11 and my mp3 player was working with it before and now its not... this mp3 player is the worst peice of technology i have ever owned....

Make sure you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 2, and Windows Media Player 10.

If you have Windows Media Player 11, then uninstall it to roll back to version 10.

Install and run Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

Connect the player to the power supply and PC.

Select the Repair/Restore option and follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player, freeing up any dead space, and re-load the system files.

NOTE: THIS WILL DELETE ALL TRACKS ON THE PLAYER.

How do i download music to my mp3


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files onto your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player.
For CD disks 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 a Craig mp4 player and when I try to sync music onto it some of the songs say " Did not fit on device" Why?? And what can I do to change it?


This is because the songs literally cannot fit onto your player. Songs, like all files, take up a certain amount of digital space. Craig MP4 players generally are small in space, usually ranging from 1-4GBs, which will not get you far if you have a lot of songs. The only real solutions for this without buying a new MP3/MP4 player is to be more selective with the songs you put onto it. There is not a way to change the amount of songs something can hold, so you just have to put less onto it. Also, If you put videos onto it, get rid of those first because videos take up way more space than songs.

If you want more space, I would recommend a 8GB or 16GB music player, those are satisfactory for most people with a lot of songs.

Also, for now you could try downgrading the audio quality, which will reduce the file size, effectively making more songs able to fit onto your player, but I would not recommend this because it does create a noticeably worse audio quality.

Can I use Coby MP305 4GB MP3 player with iTunes on my Mac?


Hello,

You cant synchronize with ITUNES to a Coby MP3 player. Itunes will not recognize the device. Also, Itunes are AAC format which this unit doesn't recognize.

If you have MAC. plug unit into computer, it should show up as NO NAME on your desktop, you wuold have to drag/drop your MP3 file to this location.

If your interested in converting ITUNES to MP3, here is how you could do it on ITUNES "this does not work for purchased music" -

How do you download music to an mp3 player from a cd?


Hello,

Normal audio CD tracks should be converted to mp3 files onto the computer's hard drive, first.
This is called ripping or RIP function.
There are several programs that can RIP audio CD.
It is important to convert music into the correct bitrate for the player to match for playback. (192 kbps is good quality and often used)
You can use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 for conversion.

When you use WMP 10 or 11 and the player is detected in the program:
1. Tell the player were your music library is: setup your music library.
2. Create a playlist; make playlist name and add mp3 files to the list.
3. Synchronize the playlist with mp3 files to the player.

If the player cannot be detected in WMP 10 or 11, but only can be viewed as a removable disk in "My Computer" : use the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method to put mp3 files from the computer onto the player.

When needing more help, don't hesitate to write a comment in this reply.

My Phillips Go Gear 8GB MP3 player wont sync music


Windows Media Player 11 ruins this player. Uninstall Windows Media Player 11, and roll back to Windows Media Player 10. Then use version 10 to sync songs to your device.

Insignia NS-4V24 sync error


Most likely a issue in the FAT or similar table. The tables used on the internal memory is allocated only for short files names since most media managers change the file names to fit 8.3 dos. They do this since mp3 and mwa audio files use id tagging. So try renaming your mp3's that its eight letters or numbers then the three letter extension .mp3 = rap0001.mp3

Can not remove files from sansa


Windows Media Player is a little temperamental when it comes to music on the device.

You can manually manage the music from My Computer>Device Name (m250)>MUSIC Folder.

You can drag & drop files onto the device from here, as well as, right click and delete them.




Best of Luck.
