Can't download music from Napster to YH-920


Move all the files to the windows media player. So the songs are listed in the media player. Then connect the device and use the sync option in the media player. There may also be a sync option in napster but I think the windows media player would work better.

My mp3 player


sometimes when you have a new mp3 player that has not been used it has to format itself, this is normal AS LONG AS THERE IS NO MUSIC already on it

My creative zen keeps telling me playback error so i can't listen to music. ive reset it a million times


either the songs are in the wrong format, or you have a corrupt DB.

Get firmware upgrade or recovery mode instructions from Creative's website.

If you are trying to download iTunes songs - dont!
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).

My sanansa wont let me listen to music


If you use napster which has protected music needs you to connect your mp3 to your computer every so often to renew the music. If you are using the trial version of napster be aware the music transferred only last for that trial time so that is the catch with napster.

Toshiba Gbeat F10 "files not found" Napster says to reformat


I had this problem on mine as well. The problem was that the liscenses on the music was expired. I had to remove the music and then reload it and have had no problems since. Good luck.

Transferring Music from Napster w/o WMP


Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downl...

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.

Best of Luck.

Synchronoze to continue music subscription


I treat my Sansa like a disk drive and simply transfer the files from my hard drive to the Sansa via Explorer.  The tracks purchased from Napster can be downloaded to your hard drive.  Then I exit Napster and use Windows Explorer to simply transfer the data.  Works great for me for the past month!
