The mp3 files you are trying to listen have been protected with a lisence.. What kind of files are these? MP3? Wma / wmv?

    I recommend you try a few difrent songs. Where do you download these files / music?

  • Ekse May 21, 2008

    Can you give me your email address? I could send you a mp3 file that should work for sure. (song / music)

  • Ekse May 21, 2008

    I'm uploading you mp3 file to try on the player

  • Ekse May 21, 2008

    It should work everywhere, no protections no lisences. Tell me how it works on your player.

  • Ekse May 21, 2008

    the files your useing on your player are protected, you need to get mp3 files without a protection.

  • Ekse May 21, 2008

    well the music files you have on your pc and on the cd have to be changed to mp3 format.

    This can be done with winamp

    Its a bit complex I don't feel like typeing all that I suppose I could show you with remote assistance.

    Your not doing anything wrong, Its simply that those protected wma files aren't allowed to be played on your player.

Voice recorder function or not?

When you turn on your mp3 and there's the list like music, movies, ebook... etc... choose the Record and when you get to rec. push the options button (OPT top right had corner) then start record, then when you're done push pause/play and then turn off the mp3 and then go back to the record mic again and push play to listen to it.
