Re: volume and changing songs
OK, first try hooking it up to your computer and then find the specific model of your mp4 player and find the "drivers" online, then find a "firmware update" for it. and you might want to check out if there's a reset configuration on it.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This guide will show you how to make iPhone ringtones using songs on your iTunes music library right from your Windows PC without installing any application (except for iTunes, of course) and without registering to any website or any premium text services. That means, everything is FREE!
Everything is done directly on your computer, you can do this even without internet connection.
This is for all iPhones (iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G or older) and for all iOS versions.
Here's what you need:
Computer running on Windows 7, Vista or XP with iTunes installed
Song(s) on your iTunes music library
Note: You don't need your iPhone yet until you're done making your ringtone and are ready to sync.
If you don't see the Ringtones list on your sidebar, don't worry. It will show up after you're successful in creating your first one.
Open iTunes (from your PC) and select any song from your music library.
Right-click on your chosen song then click on Get Info.
Click on the Options tab, at the top of info window.
Look for Start Time and Stop Time, and copy whatever is written in the Stop Time box (which is the full length of the song) to avoid messing up the original copy, coz you're gonna need to put it back later.On the video, the original length of my song is 5:48.055, but ringtones for iPhones could not comprise the full length of the song, it must only be around 1 to 30 seconds (though I'm not sure if 30+ sec will still work).
Shorten the song to acceptable limit (1 to 30 sec.).On the video I used the first 9 seconds, by changing only the Stop Time from 5:48.055 to 0:09.000.You may also choose the middle part of any song, say you can set the Start Time at 1:23.456 (or any time of your choice) and the Stop Time at 1:54.321 (or any time of your choice).
Click on OK to apply the changes.
Select the same song, click on Advanced from the Menu bar at the top of iTunes Window, then click on Create AAC version.Notice that the AAC version has shorter time than the original one.
Modify the original copy back to its full length (noted on step 4), then click on OK.
Right-click on the AAC version, then click on Show in Windows Explorer. A folder will open showing your two songs in file form, the original copy having the .mp3 file extension, and AAC version with .m4a.If you cannot see the file extensions, Go to Control Panel>Folder Options>View (tab)> and from there, remove the check beside the option saying Hide extensions for known file types. Click on OK to apply the changes. (Watch the video for clearer instruction.)
Change the .m4a file extension to .m4r.You may also change the name, but that's up to you. The important thing is to change the file extension.
Then Windows will ask:Just click on Yes.
Double-click on the modified file to add it to your ringtones list, and you're done!
The only thing you need to do now is to sync ringtones so you can use them on your iPhone.
WARNING-BEFORE YOU SYNC Syncing ringtones will affect the music library on the iPhone, so before you click the sync button, be sure to transfer all your purchased songs first (from iPhone to PC) so no song will be deleted. Or better yet, do this only when you're working on the computer where: you save all your songs, or; you regularly sync your iPhone.
Notes: This guide is intended only for iPhone users, because iPhones do not accept file types other than .m4r as ringtones.
This guide is intended only for Windows users. The guide for Mac users is written separately, with its own video.
This is because the songs literally cannot fit onto your player. Songs, like all files, take up a certain amount of digital space. Craig MP4 players generally are small in space, usually ranging from 1-4GBs, which will not get you far if you have a lot of songs. The only real solutions for this without buying a new MP3/MP4 player is to be more selective with the songs you put onto it. There is not a way to change the amount of songs something can hold, so you just have to put less onto it. Also, If you put videos onto it, get rid of those first because videos take up way more space than songs.
If you want more space, I would recommend a 8GB or 16GB music player, those are satisfactory for most people with a lot of songs.
Also, for now you could try downgrading the audio quality, which will reduce the file size, effectively making more songs able to fit onto your player, but I would not recommend this because it does create a noticeably worse audio quality.
the volume may change depending upn the quality of the songs that you may have downloaded...one way to fix that is to go to itunes...edit...preferences...click on playback and check the sound check option...this will adjust the sound levels of all songs automatically...you can even change individual song volumes....right click the song that you want to change in your library...go to get info...options...and there you can adjust the volume of the song or even define preset equalizers for any particular song...hope im of help :)
I HAD A VISUAL LAND MP3 PLAYER. ONLY PLAYED FIRST 10 SECONDS OF SONG. IT IS SET TO INTRO. WHILE THE SONG IS PLAYING PUSH THE BUTTONS AND YOU WILL SEE THE OPTIONS COME UP. SONG HAS TO BE PLAYING. CHANGE FROM INTRO.
The songs are in the wrong format. The format of the songs are wrong in one way or another. Each Mp3 player has a product spec sheet that lists which type of music file it is compatible with (Mp3, WMA, WAV, AAC, etc). You can't play iTunes songs, which are AAC format, on a player that only accepts Mp3 or WMA format. The second formatting issue has to do with the DRM license on the songs you have downloaded. Right click a song that gave you an error, click on "Properties," and click on the "License," "Media Usage Rights," or "Digital Rights Mgmt" tab (wording varies by configuration). Not every song allows unlimited or even one-time transfer to a "portable device" (code word for "Mp3 player" in this case). Also, some songs are fixed-term - they expire after a while - sometimes in as little as 24 hours. To get around this, convert every song to Mp3 format. Either that, or upgrade your music service subscription to the highest pkg they have available and never cancel (Napster's basic music svc, for instance, does not let you transfer to an Mp3 player, but their "Napster To Go" upgrade does allow transfer). -Tha Mp3 Doctor
If NONE of these changes work, 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.
1) Disconnect from computer, turn it off, hold in volume + button and reconnect it to your computer - continue holding volume + until the Found Hardware Wizard comes up. 2)
