Question about Generic Memory MP3 Player

Cannot download music to mp3 player

I bought what I thought was an iPod from e-bay but it is only a digital music player MP3 & WMA. Have an MP3 driver disc which I have loaded to my Windows 98 computer. Plugged it into the USB port and it lights up and has 2 small tunes that were presumably loaded at manufacturer. How do I get my favourite tunes downloaded into the player? I am one of the 'silver top' brigade and not very conversant with the technology but would like to be able to listen to music when I am on long journeys.

    The instruction booklet only says Digital Music Player MP3 & WMA. The box said Multimedia Player. It was brand new. Says "Supports MP3 and WMA music format" "Supports USB function"

    All I get when I tried the above solutions is "Windows Media Player does not detect any storage media in the selected device. Insert Media into the device". I found the advert from eBay and it said "New 2gb Clip Mp3 Player with Samsung Flash". I also downloaded a Windows98 driver but still no joy.

What happens when you plug it into a USB port in your computer?

It should appear as another drive on my computer. If you already have music loaded up in your hard drive, you could try it one of two ways.

1) copy the MP3 songs from the hard drive and paste them to the drive letter assigned to the MP3 player

2) Run Windows media player. See if your device appears on the right side of the screen. If it does you can simply drag and drop your music into the right side of the screen. It will tell you on the screen.

Option 2 is the easiest way to do it.

    There could be a problem running that device with Windows 98. In Windows XP is better at detecting that hardware.



    Do you have Windows XP in your computer?

I am trying to download music I purchased on itunes to my mp3 player. It shows it on the list when I have it on the computer, but does not show or play on the actual mp3 player. What do I do>


Hi dasdis07...

You did not say what manufacture your MP3 player is so it is hard to tell you what to do.
I will assume you have a normal MP3 player...not an Ipod.
Check to see what format your MP3 player will play...because the I-tunes songs are in ACC.
Normal everyday players play MP3,WMA,ect...but will not play ACC that plays on ipods.
You will also need to download (FREE) and run a media converter so that you can convert your ACC music files to MP3,WMA,etc files that will play on your MP3 player.
Once you have your music converter and on Windows Media Player, then you can transfer them to your MP3 player
What your going to have to do is follow these instructions below:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.

Can i put my i-tunes library on my samsung mp3 player


Yes and No...
Yes you can put the music on your Samsung from Itunes but each song must be converted to WMA instead of ACC.
Ipod/Itunes=ACC
Windows Media Player=WMA
Go to this website and download a free media converter and convert your ACC music to WMA music.

Wont play some music


The songs are in the wrong format - see the manual/product specs for your mp3 player for details (note: not all mp3 players take drm-protected wma's)

Exs of music formats:
Mp3 - best
AAC - generally only works with brand-name iPod
WMA (DRM-encrypted) - problematic
WMA (non-DRM-encrypted) - problematic

Can you play WMA's on Sansa Mp3 model e250?


the sansa e250 will play wma files, as per Sandisk.
The problem is you bought them from a download service so there DRM protected.
The easiest way I found to remove them is to use tunebite .
Cost is about $30 or you can find it on P2P sites or newgroups.

The down side is it takes about 14 hours to convert 5 gigs worth of music. But you can then play it on anything.

TIP: convert the files to mp3 not wma so they can be used on practically any player

@szwaan wma stands for "windows media audio"
