Try plugging in your device and click on "Sync-Advanced Options"

In the dialogue box, select the tab "File types" and click on "Select All"

Then try to sync again. This worked for me!

How to put music on the player, wont connect to computer some reason


first of all, it depends on what mp3 player it is. but there is an obvious first step to ANY of them.
1) do you have it connected to the computer via usb?

Now that we are past the obvious, Here are a couple various solutions based on type of mp3 player it could be:
IPOD:

1) Download Itunes from www.apple.com
2) Install Itunes onto your computer.
3) Once it is installed, connect your Ipod to the computer, and it should register in itunes. Here, you can click on it, and go to your music.
4) Open a separate window with your music folder, and drag files from that window, to the Music area of Itunes. This is easy.
5) when you have all the music you want on your Ipod in the music list, press "synch". It will all go onto your ipod. and

Voila! you have music!!

Sansa:
1) forget rhapsody. its ****, ignore it, ditch it, it will charge you, and you cant even make playlists with it!!!
2) Open Windows Media Player
3) Open your music folder in a separate window
4) Drag and drop songs you want into a windows media player playlist.
5) Synch playlist to sansa.

OR

1) Still forget about rhapsody, it sucks.
2) Go to My Computer
3) Click on Removable Storage device (you should already have it plugged in at this point. the removable storage is said mp3 player)
4) Open a separate window with your music in it.
5) Drag and drop music files from your music folder into the removable storage disk. you wont be able to make playlists this way, but its easier.

Now almost any other mp3 player would work with one of these methods, possibly only with deviance in which program you will use. I hope this was of use to you.

Need instructions to add music from pc to ipod nano 4gb


get itunes and install that and you should then be able to add music that way ( depending on if you have it enabled to manually manage music in which case you can drag and drop music onto your ipod or playlists or if you dont then you have to click on the ipod and go to teh music tab and click on the playlists you want to synch with your ipod )

There is another piece of software you can use instead of itunes if you dont like itunes and I will post that here in a bit

If you need clarification or are stuck post back and let me know

If I have my YP-K3 plugged in, samsung media studio crashes immediately, and Emodio also does. I want to edit the playlists, the PLA files, is there any other way to do this?


Yes the same thing happens with me. I removed samsung media studio then I create a new folder in My documents, call it by the artist name eg The Beatles. place your mp3's in this file. Now plug in your YP-K3 and double click on it's icon in My computer go to data then music or playlists (whatever you want to do) cut the file you created in My documents and paste it in music or playlists.

yer that's what I do but aparently you can use iTunes

Hope this helps

Can't figure out how to download songs. Mp3 Element 1GB


If you've got songs on your computer under media player, then synch your MP3 using Media Player.
Then you can transfer the files to your MP3 player by moving those from your library in Media Player to
the right Synch List. Once you've got the songs you want, go to the bottom on the right and press
Start Synch.

Sansa mp3 e260


Well, one way of fixing this can be to watch the files sync to your mp3 player and when it starts syncing the unwanted files, just simply press "stop sync". I think i know what you are using and i had the same problem at first. you will make a sync list and click sync but after that list if finished, it will sync the rest of the songs from your computer also, you can just wait for your wanted sync list to be finished and as soon as it begins to sync the unwanted media, just press stop. this wont harm your computer or your mp3 player.

No files in playlist


I just found out how to do this.

I go to the sync page in windows media player and go to "set up synch". Then you choose the play list you want. Then press synch button.

Note, you first have to create a playlist from the library.

Playlists on the MicroSD card?


You just reminded me. I took my SD card out and put it into my phone. I'll replace it in the Sansa and see what happens. So far, synching with WMP works, but still not Napster (where I do all my purchases). oh well.

I'll try putting my card back in. Maybe a DMR key was on it. Also, I may have changed the name of my player. Lookign into a couple options. Back later/another day.

MPC895 won't play files


I had the same problem and solved it by: formatting the Coby MP3 player (again) in Windows Media; creating a new playlist in the window that appears at the left of the screen; synching the new playlist to the Coby; and when the player was 100% synched I left the Coby in my PC until I shut it down completely. Only when I saw that my PC was shut down, did I remove the Coby and it worked fine.

Format the MP3 player. The owners manual should tell you how.

Mp3 player


Load the Philips software onto your computer. You have to load the songs onto the player using WMP (Windows Media Player) 8 or 9. Connect the player using the USB cable. Run the Philips Go Gear Digital Audio Player software. Upgrade the firmware. This will format the player and erase everything you have done so far. Start WMP. Click on the Synch tab.It will have 2 window panes. In the right side, at the top, there is a drop list. Select the player from the list. Now create a synch list by clicking on edit playlist. Once you have added the songs, click Start Synch. That's all there is to it. Ian
