    I don't know what type of player it is and I use Windows Media Player to sync the music... When I got it from my friend there was a few songs on there but when I formated the player on my home computer of course they got erased. I even went thru every song that I was trying to sync and made sure there was no hidden file attached... should I just give up???

If you already formatted the player itself, the songs itself may be in the wrong format. This player doesn't read iTunes files, for instance - it will look like they have transferrred, but you will not be able to play them.

My device wont play all of my music


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

Downloaded music not audible on 4GB Sharper Image SMP588A-4 MP3 player, but Windows Corp sound effects accidently downloaded play


It looks mostly as a format problem. In general all the possible formats supported by a player are ON, in the sense they can readily used.
Try playing most general formats on your mp3 player.

My nextar mp3 player always say file sytem error and cant get it off or fix problem. Cant listen to music because it is frozed there.


You may want to try to reformat the player and then load music again after the restore. It also may be a problem on the type of file you are trying to play. Most common formats are .wma, .mp3, .wav

My mp3 says file format error when I try to listen to the music.


It's possible that the file type of the music file(s) you are trying to listen to are not a supported format of your mp3 player. Your player only supports MP3 and WMA audio formats. You should check the music files you are tying to play to confirm they are of a compatible format.

My coby mp3 player wont let put music on it!


Go to the coby site and download the coby media manager the one on the player is corrupt (http://www.cobyusa.com/?p=fix_mp822). Once you get that installed on you PC go to Device and expand the device (should have a drive letter with a plus sign click on the plus sign) and you will see that your music is actually in a folder titled "music". Move it all to the folder titled "audio", don't ask I don't get it. You should now be able to use the touch screen and click on the music icon and see all your music.

The songs are in the wrong format - iTunes is not comaptible with it, and it may or may not take protected WMA's. Use mp3 format songs and you should be fine.

Music wont play.


You may have formated the mp3 and there by erased the firmware that allows it to play as a stand alone mp3 player.

there doesn't seem to be support for vista but the link for the firmware and update is here. this will at least let you use it as an mp3 player again
