Can someone pls tell me how to down load music on my mw140 mp3 player? Can I down load the music from my computer? This is my first time downing music.I will be so grateful for any kind of help.


Hi brown clark...
Downloading Music to MP3 Player

1...You must download and install Windows Media Player 11 on your computer.
NOTE...Some older MP3 players will not work with Windows Media Player 11 or Windows 7 with Windows Media Player 11.
If this happens to you, then you will have to uninstall Windows Media Player 11 and install Windows Media Player 10.
2...After you have downloaded and installed Media Player on your computer.
3...Open Media Player on your computer.
4...Install all your music into Media Player that you want to install on your MP3 player.
5...Plug in your MP3 player to the computer using your Data/Sync cord, be sure that Windows Media Player is on.
6...Media player should recognize the MP3 player and sync with it.
7...After it is sync'ed with the computer,you can add the music you have installed into Windows Media Player to your MP3 Player.
Please take time to rate me

Dvd ram only recognizes cd's not dvd's keeps telling me to insert disc


Go to your computer and open the window. Find your DVD drive, right click and choose properties. Look for the Recording tab and unclick "enable CD recording on this drive". If that does not work, go to either windows update and look for hardware updates or to your laptop manufacturer website and look under the support heading for downloads and drivers for your model. Then look for a DVD updated driver or firmware update.

If you found this information helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback, if not let me know how I can assist you further.

Thank You,

Brian

I have a compaq presario desktop with Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2. The DVD drive plays VCD's but is not recognizing any DVD. Please help


you could clean the lense?
or maybe you do not have sufficient software to view the DVD, i would recommend Video Lan (VLC Player) as that can play encrpted DVD's better than Windows Media Player

I have a compaq presario cq 60 laptop with Vista - i don't understand how to access the CD-ROM drive - I would normally expect it to appear as an additional drive using the Explore function, but I can't...


Normally it would show up in "my Computer" as a drive, if it is not, then the computer is acting like it is not installed or not enabled. Go to the device manager and look for the dvd drive there and see what the properties say. Put the computer on its back and with a small phillips screwdriver, remove the screw that holds the drive to the motherboard. Now flip the laptop back on its feet and insert an open paperclip into the small hole in the door of the dvd drive bezel, this willphysically trip the door to open. Pull the door and tray out and keep pulling and the rest of the drive will follow. Power up your laptop with the drive missing and access "My Computer" and see if anything changes. Now,power down the laptop, remove the battery....wait 30 seconds and slide the drive in and make sure it seats all the way in, replace the hold down screw, replace the battery and power it up. Let windows recognize the drive and load drivers for it. If it does not read the drive, there may be an issue with either the interface on the drive or the socket on the motherboard.

Toshiba dvd rom sd r6012 isn't reading the DVDs


Try some factory CD and DVDs and just try to get them to open in Windows (not play in a media player program). If you get errors on every disc you try, it may be your CD/DVD hardware packing in.

If it reads some CDs or DVDs and not others, particularly media discs, you may be having software driver problems, otherwise, it is likely hardware.

Try inserting the disc and spinning it up while resting the laptop on its side, or even upside down. If it reads sideways or upside down, the CD/DVD reader hardware has gone and cannot probably be prepared (this is a symptom of physical controller failure and is ot fixable by normal means).

Good luck...
