    Sorry but I have to say that the volume drop only happens when you select one of the EQs, e.g. Heavy, Rock, and Jazz. Once you reset the format the unit, it goes back to the default setting, which EQ is off. You may try to setup the EQ again and see if the problem is still there. I think this is the firmware issue.

    Sorry but I have to say that it doesn't work. Actually the volume drop happens only when the EQ is on. After you format the unit, all setting go back to default -- EQ is off by default. I think this is a firmware issue.

    You are right! Before I did the reset, I was using a custom Equalizer, but after the reset, I didn't. Now I just tried enabling a custom equalizer, and the volume drops after I "Go Back".

    Actually, if you want to get technical, I think it's not really a Volume Drop, but an artificial Volume Rise when you power on, and it resets to the correct level after the "Go Back".

    Either way, it's annoying...

This happens when you're not using the default setting for the equalizer, I'm not sure how to fix it using modified equalizers, but to stop it from happening you'll have to settle for the default equalizer.

I noticed the same thing with mine and I seem to have fixed that problem (accidentally). I decided I wanted to clean the unit up, so I did the following:

  1. First I RESET the unit using a pin in the little hole on the back (marked RESET).
  2. Next I chose the FORMAT option in the SETTINGS menu and cleared the memory (ALL songs and settings).
After reloading my music, I noticed the volume drop NO LONGER OCCURS. The unit also seems to POWER UP a little quicker too, but I can't say for certain.

I'm hoping my little RESET/FORMAT will fix a few other little quirks in the unit (like SHUFFLE playing the same track over and over out of 400+ songs!)

Volume wont turn up


Resetting the volume limit on your iPod Nano affects everything you listen to, from music to audio books. You can adjust the volume for each individual item on your Nano using the click wheel, but the highs and lows of the sound will depend on the overall volume limit setting. Volume levels will vary with different ear buds and headphones, and using external devices like docking stations to play your iPod Nano will also cause variation in the volume.


Instruction:



1 Press any button on your iPod Nano's click wheel and turn it on. Press the "menu" button at the top of the click wheel until you reach the iPod menu.

2 Select "Settings" from this menu by scrolling down until "Settings" is highlighted, then click the center button.
3
Select "Playback" from the menu choices that show up.

4 Select "Volume Limits." You will reach a screen with a speaker icon and dots indicating the level of volume your iPod is currently set on.
5
Scroll the wheel up or back to adjust the volume limits. Press the center button and you will have the option to lock in your settings by selecting a four-digit combination lock. This is not a necessary step; you can click on "done" and finish. Setting the combination allows you to have more control over any future changes to your iPod's volume limits. Scroll the click wheel to select your combination. Press the center button and you will revisit the volume limits; adjust it as you like and press the center button.

Goodluck

Tips & Warnings
If you set up a combination and forget it, you can reset your iPod Nano and start over again. Resetting will not lose any of your downloads, but you will need to restore or reset many of the settings you initially chose when you first set up your iPod.
Changing the volume limits on your iPod Nano covers everything on your player, but the sound levels for songs, audio books and shows will vary based on how they were recorded.

How do I download music on my mp3 player? I bought the mp3 player(gpxml638b) and it did not have any soft ware. I have the wire to plug from mp3 to computer, but how do I start downloading music?


Sir,

1. Turn on the MP3 Player by holding the PLAY/PAUSE button.

3. When connected the LCD Display will either say “USB” or “MTP”.
4. Press the “M” (mode) button to switch between “USB” and “MTP” mode.
“MTP” mode will only work, when your player is connected to Microsoft
® Windows® XP and Windows® Media Player 10.

1. Start Windows Media Player 9 and connect the MP3 Player to your computer.
2. Click “Copy to CD or Device”.
3. In the drop-down list, on the “Items to Copy” pane, click the play list, category, or other item that you want to copy.
4. Clear the check boxes next to any files you do not want to copy.
5. In the drop-down list, on the “Items to Copy” pane, click the device that you want to copy files to.
6. Click the ‘Copy’ button.
7. Repeat steps 2-5 for any other items that you want to copy to your unit.



1. Start Windows Media Player 10 and connect the unit to your computer. On your player’s display it should say ‘MTP’. If not, then while the unit is connected press the ‘M’ (mode) button to change from ‘USB’ to ‘MTP’ mode.

Need Creative Zen user manual. No longer on the website. I really just need to know how to create playlists if you can help me with that.

I got a missil gl-1502 for xmas,the manual isn't that good.It doesn't te me how to load music on to it.I have been trying to load for acouple of days.I have music loaded on to my computer but can't get it...


These made in China MP4 players are quite budget ... however,I've managed to get mine working just fine. Just follow these steps:

1.Charge the unit. (These things come with a dead power supply, soyou'llhave to to charge it with the provided USB cable... or any cable such asone that works with a camera. you'll not be able to load it orturn iton until this has been done. 3 hours later your computer willdetect newhardware (USB mass storage device) and install the appropriate drivers.

2. Loading MP3's... there are 2 ways to go about this...

a) If you have the latest Windows media player click on the SYNC tab and follow the directions.

b)Open "My Computer" you should be able to see a new drive (probably E: F:or G:) double click to expand it, you should see a bunch of folders,simply drag and drop your MP3s to the Music folder.

3.Converting and Loading Video: The included program that comes withthesecheap-*** players is a bag of $#@! so dont even bother with it.

The best program to convert videos to work on this thing can be found HERE

-Pick the first one (note:this file is zipped so will need to extract it),
pick up a trial version of WinRar HERE

-Once extracted, go ahead and run the program...click ADD

Choose your input file, and output path,

Youwill need to know the resolution of your screen. Under Playertype,choose SUNPLUS AVI and select the video resolution of your Missil, 30frames/sec and the best sound/video quality and hit start.

- this process takes a while (30-60 min) depending on file size.

- Once complete, simply drag and drop (cut and paste) the converted file to to the VIDEO folder on the players drive.

3.Finally disconnect the player from the computer, it will say"pleasewait.. building playlist" once this is done you're good to go

I hope this has been helpful... and please... dont forget to rate this solution.

Can't create playlists on my zen x fi


I tried some suggestions posted here, and after some testing, I can now give you step-by-step instructions to create a playlist on your Creative Zen.

First, you need to think of the NOW PLAYING list as the "selected songs to be added to a playlist".

So, to start clean, let's empty out the NOW PLAYING list as follows:
1) from the MUSIC menu, select NOW PLAYING
2) when a song is shown on-screen, click the context menu
3) select REMOVE ...
4) select REMOVE ALL
Now, the NOW PLAYING list is empty.

Now, you need to select (mark) the songs you want to add to your new playlist:
1) go to an individual song
2) click the context menu, and select ADD TO SELECTED
3) go to another desired song, and do step 2) again
4) repeat until done

Now, to create a NEW playlist, go to the MUSIC menu, then:
1) select NOW PLAYING
2) it will show you the first song that you selected
3) press the Right button, to scroll through all of the other songs you selected
4) when any song is shown on-screen, click the context menu
5) select SAVE AS PLAYLIST (this refers to ALL songs in your NOW PLAYING list)
6) type the name for your new playlist, and click checkmark
ALL of the songs in the NOW PLAYING list are now saved as your New playlist.

From the MUSIC menu, select PLAYLISTS. You will see the name of the playlist that you just created. When you select that playlist, you will see the list of songs you had selected.

Please note that these songs are still in your NOW PLAYING list also. To create a another New playlist, you will first need to empty out the NOW PLAYING list as you did above.

I hope that helps.

Enjoy!
