You can keep the Sansa plugged in without fear of overcharging. The Sansa will play while it is connected to a USB port that is supplying only power, such as a USB charger operating off a car cigarette lighter. It will not play while connected to a computer.

When your MP3 player is plugged into your PC through a USB cable you can listen to the music that is on your MP3 player but through your PC not your MP3 player. Simply open the MP3 player in your PC and double click on what you want to listen too and listen while the MP3 player charges. As for leaving it charging for ever that would be hard on the battery. Let it charge until fully charged and then use it till it dies and do it that way to maximize battery life. Hope this helps you.

Hitachi 50hyt62u H can I add a removable drive as I have a slot in Back for one, and if so where do I get one


You should be able to buy an external USB drive (or thumb drive) at any electronics store.
You can connect a USB hard disk drive or USB
memory stick to your TV by using the USB inputs of
the TV. This feature allows you to play files stored in
a USB drive. 2.5" and 3.5" inch (hdd with external
power supply) external hard disk drives are supported.
IMPORTANT! You should back up your files before
making any connections to the TV set in order to
avoid any possible data loss. Manufacturer will not
be responsible for any file damage or data loss. It is
possible that certain types of USB devices (e.g. MP3
Players) or USB hard disk drives/memory sticks may
not be compatible with this TV.
Quickly plugging and unplugging USB devices, is a
very hazardous operation. Do not repeatedly quickly
plug and unplug the drive. This may cause physical
damage to the USB player and USB device itself. Do
not pull out USB module while playing a file.
Media Browser Menu
You can play photo, music, and movie files stored
on a USB disk by connecting it to your TV and using
the Media Browser screen. To do this, perform the
following: Connect a USB disk to one of the USB
inputs located on the side of the TV.
You can connect two USB devices to your TV. If both
USB devices include music, picture or video files, USB
selection OSD will be displayed on the screen. The
first USB device connected to the TV will be named
as USB Drive1. Select a device by using up or down arrows
and press OK

Since I do not keep my computer on for long periods what kind of charger can I use for the Finis swimp3 player. Will a charger used for my blackberry 5v 1a be ok? Thank you. Sid


Yes you can, the USB cable is used for transferring music files to the MP3 player as well as charging the MP3 player. If your Blackberry charger has a USB socket that the MP3 player can plug into, then it will charge the MP3 player.

I charged my swimP3 but it won't turn on when disconnected from the computer.


The Swimp3 Player does need to be charged for at least 3 hours for the best experience. Here are some tips that could help solve your problem:

Problem: The player doesn't turn on.

Suggestion: Charge the battery in the player for at least three hours, this will allow it to fully charge. You can charge it by plugging it into the USB port on your computer or by using a USB wall charger (sold separately). If you do choose to use a computer to charge it, be sure your computer is turned on. If there is no power to the computer, then no power is going to the USB port to charge the Swimp3 player.

Additional Tip: The charging answers are in the Green Indicator Light.

If the green light is flashing off and on, then your SwiMP3 player is charging

If the light is solid green, the SwiMP3 player is fully charged

If you have no green light - then it is not receiving a charge - check the connection, make sure its plugged in properly, or check to see that there is power from the computer or USB wall charger.



Problem: I have charged my player, the light is solid green, but no music plays.


Suggestion 1: Have you loaded music onto the player? Try adding a few mp3 or wma files and test it again.

Suggestion 2: If the power is on, you loaded music, clicked the Play button and no music comes out, press and hold the RESET button for 4 seconds. It's kind of like rebooting your computer when it crashes. Many times a simple reset clears up any challenges.



If that doesn't work, then it could be the

* volume

* incompatible files or

* folders




Volume: On some units the factory volume setting is very low.

Solution: Try turning up the volume by pressing and holding the "+" PLUS button. If you click the "+" button it changes the song, pressing and holding the button will actually control the volume. And if its too loud, press and hold the "-" MINUS button to bring the volume back down.





Incompatible Music Files: If you have loaded a music file that is not compatible, it simply won't play. The SwiMP3 player works with mp3 or wma files, but not aac (like from iTunes).

Solution: Remove the incompatible files. Convert your other music files to mp3 or wma, and if you are importing your songs direct from itunes, you'll need to convert them to mp3s first.



Incompatible NON-Music Files: An MP3 player is similar to a Thumb Drive or Flash Drive because it can hold any kind of file that will fit in the drive's capacity. However, if you have loaded an incompatible file - including JPEGs, Cover Art, Word Docs, anything that is not an MP3 or WMA file, the player simply can't translate it into music.

Solution: Remove the incompatible files, leaving only your mp3 or wma files in your root directory.



Folders: The mp3 player is not able to open folders and play music files stored inside, to the Swimp3 player the folder is simply an un-playable file.

Solution: Open the folders, move or copy the music files into the root directory (remember, mp3 or wma - not aac), then delete the folders.

When I plug my iPhone into the USB it doesn't


ANSWER: The headphone jack will not charge your iPod. Only the USB will charge your iPod. However, the headphone jack will play music, but the USB will not play music from your iPod.
REASON: The headphone jack does not provide any power to charge your iPod. It isnly has enough power to recieve a music signal.
REASON WHY YOU CANNOT PLAY IPOD THROUGH THE USB: The USB is only intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files. The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer. Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.
TO PLAY MUSIC FROM USB (NOT IPOD): You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.
SOLUTION: To charge your iPod, you need to plug it into USB. However, to play music, you need to plug your iPod into the headphone jack.

I have an Oakley Thump but have been able to access music on it.


Have you tried to drag individual music files to your Thump?  ITumes needs to be set to import in MP3 mode so that the music exports in MP3 mode.  My original Thumps will not play AAC format music files. Also, do your Thumps fully charge using the wall charger?  Hope this helps.

I cannot charge it (USB car charger) and listen to the music at the same time


don't think it's possible. -when you charge and play via your laptop, the player is acting as a USB key and the laptop is doing the playing. -when you charge it via your in-car port you do not have a 2nd device on which to play tunes. it's either charge or play i'm afraid
