My freestyle player says format error how to fix?? it was working fine and then this error.


Hello there,

Q.: My player is having a DRM error / Format Error / Empty Disk Error
what do I do?
A: For all 3 errors, the first step is to attempt to reset the player, this can be accomplished by pressing the play and menu
buttons down together for approximately five seconds. If reset does nothing, make sure all the songs are .mp3s, if all songs
are .mp3s, attempt to format and re-sync the player.

How do I convert my iTunes into MP3 format?
A: See Music Conversion Instruction Document: Transferring and Playing Music on Freestyle Audio mp3 players with
iTunes.

if you need to format the player here is how for MAC and windows.

Q.: What's Reformatting, How do I format my Player?
A: Reformatting your player basically wipes you player clean and deletes all songs, leaving you with a blank slate. Like
most removable drives you can reformat your player with no worries of damage to the unit. When reformatting on a Mac
make sure you choose the MS-DOS format style.
(CAUTION: FORMATTING WILL ERASE EVERTHING ON THE DRIVE)
PC (Windows NT, 9x, XP and Vista):
1. Plug in the Mp3 Player.
2. Put the Player in removable drive mode. Under "My Computer" you should
see the player as a removable drive.
3. Right click on the "removable drive" and a Drop down menu should appear.
4. In the menu select the option "format..."
5. Make sure that "FAT" is selected as the file system and that Allocation
Unit size is set to "Default Allocation Unit Size"
6. Now click format and wait, after it says format complete, you're done.
MAC OS 9 (and Earlier):
1. Plug the player in.
2. Put the player in removable drive mode.
3. Single-click the disk's icon on your desktop to format.
4. Pull down the "Special" menu from the top of the screen and select "Erase
Disk..."
5. Enter whatever name you want in the "Name:" field in the window that pops
up. If the disk is a hard drive, select "Mac OS Extended" from the
"Format:" pull down. If the disk is not a hard drive (such as a Zip Disk
or other removable media), select "MS-DOS or MAC OS Standard" for the
format.
6. Press "Erase." The drive will be formatted and ready to use.
MAC OS X (and later):
1. Start your computer and plug in the player in the USB port after the Mac
OS has completed loading.
2. Put the Player in removable drive mode.
3. An icon for a removable drive should appear for the flash drive on the
desktop.
4. From the Dock, open "Disk Utility".
5. Click "Erase" from the top selector (next to "First Aid")
6. Choose "MS DOS File System (FAT16)"
7. Click the "Erase" button
8. Perform the instructions given on the screen and finish the formatting.

How can I open my iPod on my Mac Desktop?


<p>When you connect your iPod to your Mac desktop or laptop computer, the iPod name and the icon on the desktop. Most people have no opportunity to open the iPod from the desktop to iTunes music on a regular basis, generally have short, any securities, making them difficult to recognize. However, if you use your iPod in disk mode - basically a portable hard drive - to open your Mac desktop is the fastest way to open the files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect the cable from the iPod charger to the bottom of the iPod and the other end into a USB port on your Mac should be noted that the iPod shuffle is upside down in the dock. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Wait until the iPod appears on the desktop. If not, pull and plug the charger cable, sometimes it takes a couple of tries. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Double-click the iPod icon on the desktop when it appears. IPod open up and show your files. <br />

Can I use Coby MP305 4GB MP3 player with iTunes on my Mac?


Hello,

You cant synchronize with ITUNES to a Coby MP3 player. Itunes will not recognize the device. Also, Itunes are AAC format which this unit doesn't recognize.

If you have MAC. plug unit into computer, it should show up as NO NAME on your desktop, you wuold have to drag/drop your MP3 file to this location.

If your interested in converting ITUNES to MP3, here is how you could do it on ITUNES "this does not work for purchased music" -

I need the drivers for a craig mp4 player cmp621f


The one I bought came with a mini cd that has drivers for Win98 only. Apparently they are not needed for newer OS

I just got one of these and when I plugged it in to my XP Pro based PC it identified itself as "removable disks F&G" F seems to be the players internal memory while G seems to be the mini SD slot. To transfer music to it all I had to do was drag or copy and past the MP3 files into it with explorer (My computer on the desktop) What actual drive letters show up is dependent on how many drives you have so just look for the first removable drive or have explorer open when you connect it, it'll be the first of two drives that pop up.

So basically just transfer files to it like you would any other flash memory drive.

Just a note, real player seems to want to treat this as a device it can use. However, I've tried a couple of times to get it to sync my music into it only to have real player choke and lock up. So I'll just use explorer for now

I plug it into the computer and nothing happens


I depends on what you want to do to it.

Removable media is the mp3 player drives that are viewable through plug-and-play access.

If you want to add music and such to the mp3 player, then you right-click on one of the two disk and select explore.

The right disk should show up in a new window with labeled folders inside..i.e. music.

Drag and drop mp3 files to the appropriate folder to add music, and to delete simply click the file you want deleted and press or click delete.

If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

Removing music


Plug your mp3 player into the computer using a USB cable. Make sure you only have the one MP3 player plugged in, and no flash drives or cameras, etc.

There may be a button on your MP3 player that sets the mode to MTP or USB or Ready Mode. Make sure the setting is at MTP.

Open My Computer from the start menu. There should be a list of drives and document folders. You should see a drive labeled "removable storage" or "_____-Audio Player", (_____ may be your name or the name of the mp3 player).

Double click that drive. You may now see something to the effect of "SD/MMC Card" and or "Audio Player" or the name of your MP3 Player. You may also see files that say "Music" or even the music files themselves.

Double click on "Audio Player" if you do not have music on your SD/MMC Card (or if you just don't have one in your MP3 player).

If there is no "Audio Player" file, click on "Music" or the next best looking folder (it won't harm your computer or MP3 player if you look in all the folders). This should open up into Music files or a folder labeled Music. Double click this folder. Inside you should see all the music (or videos) that is on the MP3 player. Delete the music folders and files, but be careful not to delete anything else. The folders should be labeled by Artists, then Albums, then finally the actual music files. Delete all the Artists, albums, etc, to remove the music.

If you can't find the music files using my instructions, look in the folders of your MP3 player until you find them. Also, remember to have your MP3 player set to MTP mode if it is available.

Hope this helps.
