You may have Windows Vista, in which case the CD will not work. Regardless, get a working version of the software from:
www.usasupport.philips.com - just enter in your model number, and then click on software and drivers.

How do i download music on my mp3 player?


How to Put Songs on Disney Mix Max


The Disney Mix Max portable media player is capable of playing audio files in the MP3 format. It can also play videos formatted as WMV and display photos formatted as JPEG. You can convert audio files into MP3 using the Disney Mix Max software -- Mix It Plug-in. The plug-in works with Windows Media Player 10. This software CD came with the player and is not available online. To download music to the device, you can use Windows Media Player 10 or Windows.

Things You'll Need:

* USB cable
* Mix It Plug-In installation CD

Instructions


Convert Non-MP3 Files

Install Mix It Plug-In. Insert the Mix It Plug-in installation CD into the computer's optical drive. Click "Install Mix It Plug-In" when prompted. If no screen opens, double-click on the "My Computer" icon. Double-click on the installation CD icon. Then double-click on the setup or installation file; this file is often formatted as EXE. Select to have the program saved to your desktop. Then double-click on the desktop icon -- "disneymixitplugin" to open the setup wizard. Click "Next" in the setup screen. Follow any additional setup prompts.



Open Windows Media Player 10 and create a playlist. To create a playlist, click "Library" and select "Now Playing." Drag songs from your computer to the "Now Playlist List" pane. Click the "Now Playing List" title to open the menu and select "Save Playlist As." In the "Save As" dialog box, enter a name for the playlist and select "Save."


Open Mix It Plug-In. Select "Yes" when asked to save analysis information for your music files. The software will analyze each track's compatibility with the Disney Mix Max player.


Press "Go!" to start the conversion process. Once the process is complete, an inactive "Go!" will be displayed. All music that has been converted is still listed in your Windows Media Player 10 playlist. You are now ready to download music to the player using Windows Media Player.

Windows Media Player 10

Open Windows Media Player 10 on your computer.


Remove the USB jack cover located on the bottom of the Disney Mix Max. Insert the compatible end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Disney Mix Max. Insert the other end of the cable into the computer's USB port.


Click "Library" and click a playlist name. To create a playlist, click "Library" and select "Now Playing." Drag songs from your computer to the "Now Playlist List" pane. Click the "Now Playing List" title to open the menu and select "Save Playlist As." In the "Save As" dialog box, enter a name for the playlist and select "Save."



Select the "Sync List" tab and choose "Sync List" from the menu.
.
Verify the items to be synced to the Mix Max, or right-click on a song title and select "Delete" to remove it. Click "Start Sync" to download music to the Mix Max.

Windows


Insert the USB cable to the Disney Mix Max USB jack. Connect the player to the computer with the USB cable.



Click on the desktop "Start" menu and choose "My Computer."


Double-click on the "Removable Disk" that corresponds with your connected device.


Drag songs saved on your computer with your mouse into the Removable Disk folder.

I dont know how to install the firmware for my mp4 i really need help


Hello,

Do you have the CD for the SMPK8858 ?

Then put the CD into the CD drive or DVD drive of your computer and explore the CD, for the firmware update look under:
\Firmware Upgrade tool\ConsumerUpdate 3.1.2.0\setup.exe
1. explore or double click folder Firmware Upgrade tool
2. explore or double click folder ConsumerUpdate 3.1.2.0
3. run or double click file setup.exe: this will start the installation of the update software on your computer.

After the installation of the setup.exe file, run the firmware update program to start the update for your player.


Most Sylvania players will have a CD provided. When you don't have it, download the driver (a zip file) from Curtis:
http://www.curtisint.com/html/CustService/Manuals/SYL_SMPK8858_DRIVER.ZIP
After the download unzip the file with WinZip or WinRar:
now look for the firmware installation program under
SYL_SMPK8858_DRIVER \ SMPK8858 \ Firmware Upgrade tool\ConsumerUpdate 3.1.2.0 \ setup.exe
Double click the setup.exe, the same procedure as when using the CD.

There is also a manual for SPMK8858 (a pdf file) online:

I dont know how to set up my walkman to put anything in it?


I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in transferring files to the Walkman Player. You can use the Windows Explorer to transfer files (music, images and videos) to the Walkman layer. Once you connect the Walkman Player to the Computer, it will display as an additional storage media under My Computer. Please follow the below steps to access the Walkman Player using Windows Explorer.
  • Click Start and then click My Computer .
  • In the My Computer window, under Other , double click the icon for your portable player.
  • In the My Computer\[Name of your portable player] window, double click Storage Media .
  1. Now, drag and drop the music files or folders into the MUSIC folder.
  2. Drag and drop video files or folders into the VIDEO folder.
  3. Drag and drop picture/image files or folders into the PICTURE or DCIM folder.
Now, the only thing you want to make sure is that you're transferring compatible files to the player to use in it. The video files should meet the following requirements.

MP3 is fine for audio and for images, jpeg would be good.

It can also be caused by transferring DRM (Digital Rights Management) encoded media files via the drag and drop method. It is recommended that you use the drag and drop method to transfer audio files that are not encoded with DRM. If in doubt, use either Creative MediaSource Organizer or Windows Media Player to transfer your files.
To resolve this difficulty, we recommend that you format the player and transfer the content again. You can also download and install the latest firmware, and select the Format Data Area option during firmware update.
To format a MuVo player, connect it to a USB port on your PC. Open the Windows Explorer, and locate the Removable Drive listing and right click on it. Select Format, and choose FAT instead of FAT32 or NTFS. After the formatting is complete, make sure that you stop your player before disconnecting it from your PC (see above)
To update or reload the firmware for a MuVo player, select the model of your player from below.

This firmware upgrade only works with Creative MuVo Micro N200 players. Do not install this upgrade to other players.
You will lose all content in your player when you install the firmware. Back up any audio or data files in your player to your computer before upgrading the firmware.
Before installing the firmware, please complete the following procedures:
  1. Download the latest device driver if you have not installed any drivers for your player. The file name is MStorage_PCDRV_LB_1_07_00_250.exe.
  2. Connect your player to your PC.
  3. Close all active applications (for example, Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer, or Windows Media Player etc), as well as background applications such as Norton anti-virus applications.
  4. Double click on the file MStorage_PCDRV_LB_1_07_00_250 to install it. Follow the instructions on the screen.
To install the firmware for your player, follow the procedures below:
  1. Download the firmware update, MuVoN200_PCFW_LF_1_20_04.exe to your hard drive.
  2. Connect your player to your PC if it is not already connected.
  3. Double click the firmware upgrade file.
  4. When prompted to set your player in Recovery mode, disconnect your player from your PC.
  5. Remove the battery from the player, press and hold the Play button while connecting the player to the USB port.
  6. Continue to hold the Play button for about 10 seconds after your player is connected to the USB port.
  7. When the Find New Hardware dialog box appears on your PC screen, release the Play button.
  8. If this is the first time a player is installed as Player Recovery Device, Windows will find a Player Recovery Device (or USB Device), and prompt you for drivers. Click on No , and select Do not search. I will choose the driver to install. Windows will install the necessary drivers automatically.
  9. Double click on the downloaded firmware again (MuVoN200_PCFW_LF_1_20_04.exe) to update the player's firmware.
  10. During the firmware update process, make sure to check the box next to Format Data Area under Download options.
