You have to drag and drop songs from your itunes library. It also helps to place the music in different folders. When you plug the player into your computer, it should ask if you want to open the files on the player. Do this, then select to make a new folder. Open the folder, (there should be nothing in it.) Then drag the songs from your itunes library to the open folder of the player. When finished dragging songs, make sure to close the folder on the player, then to safely eject it from the computer. All songs purchased from itunes are in AAC format. You will need to convert the songs to mp3 format before dragging them to the player.
Hope this helps. This is how I get songs onto my mp3 player. Itunes is so much easier the windows media player.
You go to Settings, check System Info, check number of songs in there. If they are existing, you should change to MTP or MSC to play it. Or go to Settings, Reset All, Yes. Try it.
If you accidentally formatted it, can't restore them.
When connecting the player to a computer with XP it should be detected directly in Windows Media Player when:
1. The player is not locked.
2. Media Player 9 or 10 is installed and updated.
If the player does not respond or seems to be "frozen", the data on the
device might be corrupt. Then the player should be reformatted: this will erase all data ! How to format, see step 1 and 2: STEP 1 - Connect the device to the computer 1. Remove the battery from the player’s battery compartment. 2. Put the hold/lock switch to lock. 3. Plug in your device to the computer.
STEP 2 - Format the device 1. Double-click My Computer. 2. Right-click on the player, which might show up as a Removable Drive, select Format. 3. Click Start. 4. Click OK when a "Format Complete" dialog appears. 5. Click Close.
There are also updates/reinstallations for the player's firmware
when needed.Press play/pause/up button and repeat/ab/down button
to see the software version; model number, storage capacity.
Take note that if you have reformatted your drive all file inside were lost. Basically mp3 players can play only mp3 format. If the format of your songs inputted to your mp3 player are not the same with the format required to your player nothing should be happen to play.
If the required of your player is mp3 so you need to put only mp3 format. No other format should be played. If your download songs are wma format convert it to mp3 format.
Make sure that the Mp3 player is formatted correctly. Plug it into the computer and in the My Computer screen right click the device, from the pull down format select Format and choose FAT32. This will wipe all the songs from the player, so add new songs, turn on the player and see if it works. If it doesn't plug the player back in and Format it again with the regular FAT setting.
The mp3 manufacturers are often being disingenuous - they plug an mp3 player into a Macintosh, and it shows up, so they say, "Hey! It's Mac-compatilbe!" But, the software is certainly not Mac-compatible, so if you ever experience a problem, there is no way to fix it. Also, the Sansa e200 series does not recognize iTunes format.
In general, I would agree that you need to reformat your player, but I have no idea how to do that on a Mac (I'm good at a lot of things, but I'm Mac-illiterate).
Yes, formatting your MP3 Player will erase everything on it other then the required system files.
If the MP3 Player is USB Compatible, plug the USB into the MP3 Player usb port, then plug the other end of the USB into your computer (provided your computer has a usb port). Depending on if the MP3 player needs software to put music on it, it should be easy. Allow the MP3 Player 1 minute to fully load onto your computer.
1) My Computer 2) Find your MP3 Player, should be something like F: Drive or MP3 Player (depends on the kind). 3) Double click on the icon of your mp3 player. 4) If there is music or anything in there, create a folder on your desktop or where ever you wish to move the music. 5) Highlight every song or anything, and right click drag it into the folder you have just made. 6) Make sure no songs are on the mp3 player. 7) Unplug it, check for songs, and if successful, you should have all your songs off your MP3 player and onto your computer! Double check, then you can format it or do what ever you wish!
