Re: can't down load
Downloads from CD will work without problem. Downloads from a music service will be a problem, because this player does not recognize DRM- encryption. Convert those songs that won't work to Mp3 format with an Mp3 converter.

Music will only play if they are in the correct format (MP3) . Are you using Itunes? or similar, if not and you are simply taking songs from a CD or your PC library they are not MP3 bfiles ut audio files instead they will not play. Software like Itunes converts songs into MP3.
The following may help: - Ensure that your Music files are of the correct format (usually .MP3 or .WMA suffix and usually NOT .WAV which is the standard CD format). - Ensure that you upload your music .MP3 or .WMA files to the correct directory and names are not excessively long as some MP3 will limit the max name length. If you know a working song on your MP3, locate the directory it resides in and put your songs there. - Lastly, if you have put your song with the correct naming convention/suffix and you now see them in your player list but they will not play, then your MP3/WMA file has non-compatible 'property' whcih is usually the encoding 'bit rate' (usually anything under 128mbps fix rate is good but you can see what is acceptable by looking at the 'properties' of your working songs that are on your MP3 player)
When you installed the songs all you installed was the title. I had this problem with my rca pearl,
you must downlad the song and not just the title of the song o.k.
Try again with the whole song.
when you put your cd's together put them as a playlist
First try opening the gogear device and click on music right after the welcome screen. Select either "All Songs", "Artists" or "Albums" to find your songs. If you downloaded your songs, they should display on the screen of philips gogear, then you can select them to play on your headphones
Only some audio formats (.mp3 .wav and .wma will be play on philips gogear SA 3020/37)
check the file types from you music the shaker only plays MP3 and PCM WAV file types. You may have WMA (if u used windows media player) which will not play on the shaker (i had this same ploblem btw) you can easly find free music file converter software to change these files to mp3 or wav types (which i did), or you could rerip to songs from a cd and tell the windows media player to rip the files as mp3 types instead of the default wma format
from the windows media player widow :
tools >> options >> Rip Music >> under format select mp3 (theres a wav option but i used the mp3 option to be safe)
do not use the sync feature it will automatically convert your files to to wma (why? i dont know) instead copy the files directly from the folder that contains them :
right click the file you need to put on the player select open file location drag and drop to the player (or copy/paste if you want).
hope this helped =P
This is from Memorex FAQs:
Some programs put the track number as the first 2 characters of the song title (file name) this will cause the player to put the songs in the same order as the CD (or album for those of us old folks). If you drag files onto the MP3 players you can arrange them in any order you wish in the file view of your windows computer. When you go through the songs on the MP3 player, they will be in alphabetic order based on the file name (song title usually). You can't change the player's settings to play in anything but alphabetical order. There is a work around: People can force the play list order by naming the songs with a numeric prefix (i.e. 01, 02 etc) so the alphabetic listing in the player will put them in the order you prefer.
This may have to do with the music service rather than the player itself. Napster, for instance, will allow you to transfer either a complete song or a streaming version of the song. If a streaming version of the song was loaded, you will see information, but the song will not play. On other songs, you must purchase the individual song before it will let you play them. In the past, you could pay a monthly fee (or no fee) for a service, and that was the only cost. Today, many services require a monthly fee PLUS a fee for each song. Try downloading a sample song from Windows Media Player to your device (on XP/Windows Media Player11, a sample song would be "David Byrne, Look Into The Eyeball"). If the sample song (you can also rip one from a CD that you own) plays in the player, then it is not the player that is the problem. Try it, and send me a reply if the sample song will not play.
Well whats happening is the mp3 player doesnt support that file but if you go to Windows Media PLayer somtimes it will actually change the music format. Or if you're downloading your tracks you could try getting your tracks off cd's. When you downloading songs off the internet I'd suggest using Lime Wire.
Well, I may have a solution. Some music websites or "free" mp3 websites put a type of license or protection thing on the files that you download so that when you try to listen to them, you can only use certin software/music players and also make it so you cannot use any of the files on your mp3 player/iPod. I tried a place called emusic.com and they say you get 20, or so, free downloads BUT you can only use their music player for them. And the funny thing is, they have avertisements in about half of the packages of new mp3 players in the market.
Try looking at their policy or license on the website to see if you can put the songs on your mp3 player. Good luck, and have a nice day.
1st I would make sure you have the newest version of iTunes (Free at apple.com/itunes/download)
Then I would try not to run any other programs while importing...
What OS are you running as well as RAM and Processor?
