    same problem but on Apple Mac.  Tunes have gone on OK but now can't get them off to put new ones on.  I chuck them in the trash but the number of Mbs available doesn't change and it refuses to put more on saying there is no space.  Has anyone else had this with a Mac.  My product is actually Bush PMP1GN/PMP512N.

Use Windows Media Player to delete:

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

The HDD series GoGear is only compatible with older DRM licenses. You will have to load files that are in mp3 format to have any success at all with this series of GoGear.

Can't delete folders. response is devise not responding


to delete files there are 2 ways to do this.(1) first is with the on and facing you. on top the is the black menu switch. (2)hold down until it reads play music,and release (3) cycle either way until it reads delete.(4) cycle the switch until it reads del / push switch in (5) cycle to voice (6) push switch in to delete files. (cycle to exit and push switch again it should go to your music.

Second way is to plug it into a computer with plug and play.with the Trio MP3 on, the computer should open up a menu, chose open files (2) the screen should have music, voice and other files on the display. chose the voice file and click it open. use the mouse to delete files / or point and use the key board delete key to delete files. IF PLUG and Play does not open up goto MY Computer and openit up. drop down to the removeable disk and click open. you should be where you can delete the voice file. good luck and have fun.

Delete music


Hey pepsigr1629,

According to the manufacturer, there are two different ways to remove music files from this model MP3 player. The first method deletes the files directly from the MP3 player itself, and can be done while the player is in playback mode. You'll want to press the "Submenu" button and select "Delete" when individual songs are being played.

Alternatively, you can do it from your home computer by connecting the player to the computer, selecting "Open device to view files using Windows Explorer" when the initial connection is made, locating the folder where your files are stored, then highlighting and deleting the files.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Well Robert, the main solution to this is the firmware. You need to set the MP3 player on to "Disk Mode" and check for any corrupted files or additional files that you didn't install originally. Like I tell all my clients, It's not whats added to the MP3 player, it's whats taken away. If you can't seem to find your original firmware onto your MP3 device, you need to install a new one, or check for additional firmware that you didn't install. Try backing up all your files before you attempt to install any new firmware onto your MP3 device.

Don't panic!

Not playing music


No Music Files Problem solved
Plug the MP3 player to PC
In Windows XP open Windows Explorer and navigate to one of the music files
Try to play the file in Windows
If it fails, unplug player and once the player switches off carry out a reset
Reconnect player to PC and repeat the process described above
You may need to repeat this several times until the music file plays in Windows.
After this format the player using Windows XP
Select the removable hard drive, right click and select format
Choose Fat32, enter a volume label (for example GMP33005) and select quick format
If formatting fails try several times
Once format is succesfull reload your music files using the software that came with the player
Be careful not to exceed 2.5 or 2.6 GB (leave some free space as this might be needed for the player to work)
The player should now play the music files correctly
