Hi

I have experienced before when my cousins MP3 is corrupted A

All song cannot be played because of some faulty songs or files. What I did is I connected it to my laptop using a USB cable and then transfer all the songs files & the picture files from MP3 to Computer. Then I deleted all these songs and pictures in MP3 player.

Then I started playing song and opening picture file each file into my computer to see which on is corrupted (that cause your MP3 faulty). If faulty, delete it. Once you all check the song and it is playing in your computer and pictures can be open to your computer. It means all these files are working good. Make one sample song transfer to your MP3 player and play it in your MP3. Once it played, you can start transferring all files.

Regards

I bought my son a "MP4 player, Augen is the Manufactor or model. Will you tell me how to download music to it. I have downloaded a few songs but get this message- "format error"


Hello,

the reason its showing format error is because the songs you downloaded into it is not compatible with the player. For example, if the song you were suppose to download was to be in AAC format, and you put MP3 format, it will show format error because it does not recognize songs in Mp3 format but with AAC format.

Therefore, when you want to download songs into the Mp4 player, make sure the songs are in either WMA or MP3 Audio format. These audio formats are compatible with Mp4 player.

Also, if you want to download videos, make sure they are in MP4 format.

I wish you good luck.

I need to delete songs from my MP3 player.


Hello,

try formatting it. I think there is a problem with the player. If it does not format, then prepare to get another mp3 player.

Take care

I HAVE DOWNLOWDED SONGS BUT A LOT OF SONGS WONT COPY TO MP3


Okay, fist, you need to make sure the player is good (boots up, goes to menu, etc.). next, you need to put all of the songs into media player, then SYNCH them to the player. If you can't do that, try putting all of the songs into a folder called "music" and then put them into a subfolder called "albums." it should work shortly afterwards.

Sony NW-E507 Cannot play!


The songs that won't play are in the wrong format. Three common music formats are: WMA AAC Mp3
AAC (ITunes) does not work with most players, WMA is problem-prone. I would use Mp3 format only.

The song format is most likely wrong:
read my "Tips and Tricks" on Song formats for Mp3 players: too long to repost here

Song Formats for Mp3 Players Explained
By Tha Mp3 Doctor
I have seen quite a few threads around Fixya in which the stated problem is that the Mp3 or Digital Audio Player will not load the songs; will appear to load the songs but will not actually play them in the Mp3 player once disconnected from computer; will skip the songs on the player, or show only “0:00” for file length; songs “disappear” all of a sudden (although this particular problem can be caused for many reasons not covered in this article); your store-bought/burned/ripped CD’s will not load into your Mp3 player; or get the error message “File Format Not Supported.” All of these problems occur because the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not recognize. Every music file is in a certain format. The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC, WAV, RA, etc. Each Mp3 player only recognizes a certain number of these formats. Every Mp3 Player is different. You will have to check your Mp3 player’s product specifications (specs) or user’s manual to find out which formats your particular Mp3 player recognizes. When you try to download or sync the wrong file format, you will get one of the errors that I mentioned above.

Or, it could be a "formatting" issue:
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
