Hi,

Where are you dragging the file from? You may have moved the file path to a different location thus giving you an error message that the file cannot be found.

How do i upload new music to my swimp3 and remove old songs on it? I tired to drag it in but it says the file is full.


IF you are using a MAC, when you remove songs from the unit you must empty the trash on your desktop to completely remove the songs from the unit.

I charged my swimP3 but it won't turn on when disconnected from the computer.


The Swimp3 Player does need to be charged for at least 3 hours for the best experience. Here are some tips that could help solve your problem:

Problem: The player doesn't turn on.

Suggestion: Charge the battery in the player for at least three hours, this will allow it to fully charge. You can charge it by plugging it into the USB port on your computer or by using a USB wall charger (sold separately). If you do choose to use a computer to charge it, be sure your computer is turned on. If there is no power to the computer, then no power is going to the USB port to charge the Swimp3 player.

Additional Tip: The charging answers are in the Green Indicator Light.

If the green light is flashing off and on, then your SwiMP3 player is charging

If the light is solid green, the SwiMP3 player is fully charged

If you have no green light - then it is not receiving a charge - check the connection, make sure its plugged in properly, or check to see that there is power from the computer or USB wall charger.



Problem: I have charged my player, the light is solid green, but no music plays.


Suggestion 1: Have you loaded music onto the player? Try adding a few mp3 or wma files and test it again.

Suggestion 2: If the power is on, you loaded music, clicked the Play button and no music comes out, press and hold the RESET button for 4 seconds. It's kind of like rebooting your computer when it crashes. Many times a simple reset clears up any challenges.



If that doesn't work, then it could be the

* volume

* incompatible files or

* folders




Volume: On some units the factory volume setting is very low.

Solution: Try turning up the volume by pressing and holding the "+" PLUS button. If you click the "+" button it changes the song, pressing and holding the button will actually control the volume. And if its too loud, press and hold the "-" MINUS button to bring the volume back down.





Incompatible Music Files: If you have loaded a music file that is not compatible, it simply won't play. The SwiMP3 player works with mp3 or wma files, but not aac (like from iTunes).

Solution: Remove the incompatible files. Convert your other music files to mp3 or wma, and if you are importing your songs direct from itunes, you'll need to convert them to mp3s first.



Incompatible NON-Music Files: An MP3 player is similar to a Thumb Drive or Flash Drive because it can hold any kind of file that will fit in the drive's capacity. However, if you have loaded an incompatible file - including JPEGs, Cover Art, Word Docs, anything that is not an MP3 or WMA file, the player simply can't translate it into music.

Solution: Remove the incompatible files, leaving only your mp3 or wma files in your root directory.



Folders: The mp3 player is not able to open folders and play music files stored inside, to the Swimp3 player the folder is simply an un-playable file.

Solution: Open the folders, move or copy the music files into the root directory (remember, mp3 or wma - not aac), then delete the folders.

This could actually be an easy fix. If you have any files on the player that are not WMA or MP3 files, or that you've stored your music in folders - either way it could simply stop the drive from playing.

Songs from CDs won't play


Nick,

This is an easy fix. Most Mp3 players, the Aqua Mp3 player included, need to have the files in an mp3 format - not the CD format.

Simply convert your CD to Mp3 files on your computer using a software like Media Monkey http://www.mediamonkey.com/ (which has a free version). Once they are converted, then you can simply drag and drop them on to your Aqua Waterproof Mp3 player.

If you're using a Mac, then you can use iTunes to import the CD and then convert the files to mp3 within iTunes.

I hope this helps you get in the water and swimming to music soon.

Mp3 player wont play music, says file not formated


The file not formatted message is not an error that a repair will fix.
The songs that you have loaded onto the player are in a format that the player does not support. Do yourself a favor, and only download files that rae in mp3 format - they will never give you problems, error messages, require long explanations, etc.

Got to help with computer


  1. Connect the USB cable to the back side of the device
  2. Connection the USB side of the cable into the USB port on your computer
  3. If you are using a Windows PC, you can locate your swimp3 drive in 'My Computer'
  4. If you are using a MAC, you will see a new icon appear on your desktop 'NO NAME'
  5. If you have MP3s on your computer you can drag and drop files onto your swimp3 drive
Once you have all the songs loaded onto your device, eject your device and enjoy listening to music underwater.

I cannot copy iso games


try dragging the files into the folder you want, instead of just copying them. because your psp is recognised as a mass storage device, it will copy the files onto the memory stick when you move it instead of physically moving it like it would if you moved it to a folder on your hard drive. good luck!

Downloading Ares free music


The current version of the swimp3 player will support "unlocked" music in the WMA or MP3 format. As long as you're able to create an unlocked or unencrypted version of the music or audio, you can simply copy that to the Finis Swimp3 Hard Drive. Like most mp3 players, the Drive has similar capabilities as a thumb drive or SD Card - so it's just drag and drop.

Of course, you're responsible for your own music ownership experience.

Have fun Swimming with Music.
