Definitely! You don't need the software at all. Just connect the player to your computer with the USB. It should open as a disk drive (if it asks you, choose 'open folder to view files') and then you can just copy music to it with drag and drop. Then use 'safely remove hardware' before you unplug it again, and you should be 'good to go'.

1993 Chevy Corsica Door Won't Open

Yes, Ray, remove the door panel...I don't know any other way to get to the door latch. With the door not opening, 2 choices: you can destroy the panel by cutting out or tearing off part of it-kind of around where the door latch is. Or you can remove the four bolts to the driver's seat, pull it out the passenger side, then you would probably have room to get the panel off. You might want to figure out how to get the panels off by taking off the passenger door panel, where you can work and see it. It is actually pretty easy. A few screws, one behind the inner door handle, a few others-look around. Armrests or door pulls have larger screws. Window crank handles are retained to a short shaft by a wire spring clip. There is a cheap hand tool for removing this clip, purchase at any parts store. Get all the screws out. then slip a thin blade screwdriver or putty knife at the bottom of panel, and pry out-there are about 10 or 12 plastic push button pins around the bottom and up the sides part way. Get the screwdriver close to them and pry outward, you can pop them out of the holes they fit in, in the door frame. Once you get them popped out, each one will make the panel looser and looser, when all are loose, panel will be floppy-pull out from the bottom and lift up-up so the panel lifts out of the window channel. there, done. If any plastic pins broke, don't worry, the others will keep the panel good and secure to the door, or you can buy those pins at parts stores or grab a bunch at salvage. If you decided to just rip the door panel off around the latching area, look for another panel at salvage.

Okay, with no panel in the way, one other thing: the plastic water barrier shield, a piece of thin plastic sheeting glued to the door frame behind the panel. Peel it off as necessary to reach into the latch. Trip the latch to open the door. Both the outside handle and the inner handle operate the latch by rods. The small rods are retained by small plastic clips. Maybe your rods have slipped loose. Also check if the lock rod is unlocked. Sometimes, the lock won't fully release. Keep working at it till you get the door open. (Don't put the panel back on till you know the door will open and close.) You should be able to see why the latch won't release. If you see nothing wrong, spray the latch liberally with a penetrant, like WD40, spray it anyway to get past years of dirt and gunk build up. Whatever is broke, replace from salvage-the latch, handles, rods, etc. Sometimes the rods can get bent and the handles won't work.
Hope you get it, let me know. Post back if further questions on this.

I have a .pst file that is 5 GB which I am trying to copy to a sandisk flash drive cruzer 8 GB. I keep on getting an error message stating the the file is to big for the destination file system. What...

Two possibilities:

1. you already have more than 3GB of files on the SANDISK.
So, delete some files, or "burn" them to a CD/DVD disk,
so that you have at least 5 GB of "free" space available.

2. the "file-system" (the way that the "table-of-contents" is laid-out on the SANDISK) limits the size of a single file to 2GB.
The "file-system" on your 'C:' drive does *NOT* have that identical limitation (it does have a "maximum-file-size", but it is MUCH larger).

Open Outlook, and "compress" all the folders.
Perhaps, the PST file will shrink to less than 4.7 GB.
If it does, then you can "burn" that file onto one DVD-writable disk.

Music transferred from internet to my sansa not good

Am not sure which of the 2 actions we did solved the problem...but we installed the CD that came with it (my daughter has a Sansa C260 and her CD was already installed in the computer and we thought I didn't have to install mine). But we resorted on installing mine too in case it would help with the problem, and then we re-loaded all the songs into my Sansa C250 at a slower pace, although I really don't know if the quicker pace did cause the problem. But now my Sansa C250 is now able to record any song correctly.

Whatever you not hit it, kick it, smash it....unless you bought it with the guarantee of anything is covered unless it's lost or stolen warranty when you bought it! I have had mine for maybe 3-4 months now & still having problems with mine. Mine wants to freeze up on me. The last time was last weekend, & at the time I'm writing this, it has again been frozen the the past hr 1/2 +. Maybe it has something to do with weekends, not sure. But last Saturday, on my way to work mine was still acting "sick". Wierd & not sure what I did or didn't do, but all of a sudden it started working....approx. 7:30 am WIERD! If you find out what may be causing your problem maybe you might be lucky to find the end of the rainbow to technology....good luck! But again, don't smash it unless you bought the extra warranty. Better yet....! Take it back to the store & get a refund! May you have a better & safe weekend, Leesa Last weekend it took maybe 12 hrs. or so to unfreeze & believe me I wanted to smash it with my foot & I did purchase the extra warranty! Not sure if you are having the same problem. Don't destroy it....instead since mine is covered for anything except lost or stolen....please DESTROY MINE!!
