I also use a macbook and I am just using finder to sync stuff up. Plug it in and the macbook should detect the device and then load music, video etc into their respective folders.

2 possible issues:
!) first of all, there are no Philips mp3 players that have Mac-compatible software
2) many laptops have a usb port that is less than 2.0, which is not enough to power this player

I can not get my Apple Macbook laptop to recognize my Mp3 player or add music to it. Says device is unreadable and gives me option to "initialize", "eject," or "ignore" when I plug it in to my computer....


Before you blame your MacBook, make sure another MAC can read your player. If it can, then it's a hardware compatibility issue. Would suggest you back-up your data on the MAC and upgrade the OSx to the latest version. If you have Leopard, please update to Snow Leopard at least. The update disk costs very little and is very easy to do by simply inserting the CD and following the instructions. You will need to reimport your programs and data using the Time Machine program on your MacBook. Max out the memory in your MacBook while you are upgrading it. Crucial.com provides most of the memory for most mfrs, you can use their site configuration to determine the best memory for you MacBook.

Hi i have a macbook air and i dont know hoe to transfer music files to my sony walkman nw-e507


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this. I have the cause to your problem, but you won't like the outcome of it. In order to make music transactions from your PC to your Sony Walkman NW-E507, "SonicStage" software must be installed on your computer. Unfortunately, this software is not supported by any Macintosh OSs. You have a Macbook air computer, which means it won't work properly on your computer. The software is only supported by Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004 & 2005, Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows XP Professional, Windows Millennium Edition and Windows 98 Second Edition. It doesn't even support Windows Vista or Windows 7. The only solution to give you here is to either find another MP3 player that supports Mac OSs or get a another laptop that supports those Windows OSs listed above. I'm so sorry for my incovienient solution, but it had to be brought to attention so you will know. Sorry for the incovienience and thank you for taking the time to view my solution and choosing FixYa as your one-stop place to find solutions to your problems. Have a nice day, afternoon or night.

How can I put music on Sansa MP3 player from Macbook Pro?


Not to sure about a mac but I think mac's use a mp4 format when it rips a cd, and the Sansa will use a mp3 file. You can download a free program to convert these files but again, I know where for a PC but not a mac. Look for free mp4 to mp3 converter program for Mac..

Download songs from ITunes on Macbook to Digital Audio Player


Itunes uses a file format called AAC. There aren't too many players other than the Ipods that can play AAC files. This is why your songs won't play on your Sandisk player. What you need to do is get a mp3 converter, I personally recommend DBPoweramp, excellent program and can convert nearly everything. Once you convert your AAC files to mp3, they should play no problem...

I have a SanDisk Sansa m200 mp3 and a macbook pro


Even on a Macbook pro, you should be able to access your "my computer" option, where it shows you the local disk drives and everything. your mp3 player icon should appear there. then after you click on the icon it should bring up a page containing folders "on" your mp3 player. there doesnt have to be any music or videos or anything like that to have the folders already on there. now i dont have a mac but what i suggested you to do should work.
