Re: flash card not playing
This is the worst mp3 player ever invented - i have to tell you this up front. There is no driver, the company does not support the product anymore - I would return it now while you still can.
Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

If your music files are on your phone or memory card, you can set up the app and it will create a database of all your songs (usually in a folder called "Music"). The app plays what you ask it to play - one song, or an entire album, or all songs in the "genre" Country, etc. The radio just plays whatever sound the phone is sending. The iphone is set up to play a series of songs (probably you selected an album) before pausing.
The video file you have might be encoded with a codec you don't have installed. There are codec packs which cover the most of them, so that media players can play videos. You can try downloading the most popular I know, k-lite codec pack from here. And try to play the video again.
If you don't want to mess with codecs and stuff, you can always try downloading vlc media player, that plays nearly anything without the need of separate codecs.
If the autoplay menu doesn't show up, just go to My Computer and double click whichever drive the USB is in. If it does, just view the files, then find and double click the music files you have in the flash drive. It should open whatever music player you have on your computer and play the music.
Hope this helps.
1. Does it have that error all the time and is unable to play back ANY images? Or does it say that for only some images?
It sounds like a corrupt memory card affecting one or more images that are not in the correct format for the camera to read it.
2. Did something lead up to this condition? For example did anything happen to the camera? Was it dropped, got wet? or someone was messing with the memory card taking it in/out/in/out while the left sitting around?
Here are some potential solutions. Sorry it's not a really short solution but there are several things that can cause this.
1. Re-seat the memory stick. So remove it and put it back in. It should go in smoothly and all the way. See if it works then.
2. Try a different memory stick, take a photo or two and see if it plays back.
3. Erase the offending file. A File Error can be caused by taking a photo with really low batteries and the camera shuts off halfway through saving the photo generating a corrupt file.
It often won't get over that on it's own so you have to use a computer to erase the offending file.
3. Fix corrupt card by reformatting it. You could use a USB flash card reader (or connect the camera via USB) and retrieve your photo's to the computer so you have them. Then reformat the card and it's often OK again at that point. If the problem comes back it's probably a faulty card.
Other causes: A File Error can also be caused by loaning out the memory card and someone put it in a different camera for a while. Then when you get it back it can't read the new files on it. In that case use a computer to remove the extra files or backup your files and reformat the card.
Use the camera to format the card because Sony likes to do things their own way and they don't play well with others (with regard to compatability of batteries, memory cards, cables,,,etc) Their products don't fit or work with other company's products.
One Last check you could do is use a memory card reader (or the camera via USB if it mounts the card as a drive letter) and run a full Windows CheckDIsk on the card, to test it for errors.
It is hard to provide any useful suggestions without knowing the type of cell phone your son is using.
Normally he would put the memory card in the cell phone microSD slot (provided it can support 2gb card), plug the USB cable from computer to cell phone (if it supports this). Normally the phone will have also got some software apps CD which should be loaded to computer. This will provide the necessary functions to load music files to the phone.
Alternative to USB is bluetooth connection which both the computer and the cell phone will have to support. He can transfer music files that way.
I am not sure if he can copy the files directly from the computer to the memory card and play it on the cell phone as data formats are not standard. Also iTunes files need to converted to mp3 format. If these are protected iTunes files then it becomes a bit harder - best to burn a CD and then rip into mp3 format.
Once again these suggestions are useless if cell phone cannot play music (mp3 or WMA etc) files, does not have microSD slot, does not have USB or bluetooth support.
Leave the file on your PC and use TVersity to index and Transcode ALL your videos to your XBOX360 on the fly. No conversion needed. I have copied all my sons DVDs to my PC (he kept messing em up) now I store the originals as backups and play the movies from his xbox with TVersity
Please backup all of your files in your Lifebox to your computer and format the Lifebox to a FAT32 file system. If you want to know why this problem seeks you... NTFS file system cannot be read in other kinds of devices such as TVs, Cameras (New ones maybe) and more! So if you want to watch DVDs on your TV you better format your drive to a FAT32 file system.
