SOURCE: docking station for MP3 players

I don't understand people, why pay for a docking station... when all you need is a connector from you headphone input on the player to your stereo or boom-box which has an auxiliary input. The plug you can get at any store and it only cost about 3 - 10 dollars. The plug has the same end you use on your headphones and the other end is the same as the input connectors for your stereo unit. That end would have the 2 connectors (usually red and white) that you use when connecting units to your stereo's auxiliary input. Connect and listen to your music.

Or you can buy and fm transmitter for your player and listen to your music via a fm radio station. Cost about $20 or more... depending on the name brand.

SOURCE: docking station for MP3 players

A variation on the best answer is using the an earphone port adapter with the other end having the same kind of plugs as the TV end of your game console cable, just minus the video feed. Plug the earphone end into the mp3 player and the other end into the sound jacks where you would normally put the game console. Some TV's have one set in front and on in the back just like it so you can have your music and your game console hooked up at the same time. If you have a home theater sound system, you will get killer sound out of your mp3 player like no docking station or stereo can produce you'll even get the advantage of the sub-woofer built into this thing.

Another approach is to use a cable from the earphone output to the audio input for your PC if you have a good multi-media speaker set on your PC. Again, you get killer sound and the sub-woofer. Now you might wonder why you would do that as you probably have most of your tunes on the PC already. It's simple. Unless you organize all your music into multiple play lists on your computer, you'll probably have your current top favorites organized on the mp3player and that will allow you more control from the hand than you get from mousing through all the menus and the like on the PC. It will also take advantage of the fact that the mp3 player is doing all the decoding work, and all the computer has to do is shunt the analog sound back out through the speakers, taking a lot less processing power and allowing you to keep using even the slowest PC for more practical purposes, like gaming, surfing, blogging and ....

SOURCE: music will not play from mp3

I had this problem. Plug your Slick Stick player into your computer, then go to MY Computer, right click and then click on Explore. In the left pane, you should see your audio device under a drive letter like J or E or another. Click on it and it should show "Audio Player". Click on that and you should get a blank screen if your MICIN.DIR is gone. If it is, just right click in a clear section of the page, go down to New and click on Folder. Name the folder MICIN.DIR. NOW, you are ready to add music to your player. Just copy and paste your mp3 songs into the same page where your MICIN.DIR is. DO NOT PUT THESE mp3s into the MICIN.DIR folder, but outside of it. The mp3s CANNOT be in a folder of anykind, they should just be loose where you can see them. The player looks for files, mp3 or wma, NOT folders. To check and see how much space you have on your player just right click on "Audio Player", not audio device. Audio player should be under audio device. When you right click and the drop down menu appears, then go all the way to the bottom and left click on "Properties" A pie chart will pop up showing you the amount of used space and free space. Now, on the Emerson mp3 Stick, which is like the Slick Stick, you have to put your songs INSIDE the MICIN.DIR instead of outside the folder. This is the only way they will play. I don't know why it is different. If this does not help, then write me at: We will figure it out. My name is Olen.

You can buy a cable that will connect the output of your mp3 device to the input jack of your stereo at most electronic stores. Make sure its stereo. Very simple to do.

I pod charges, plays, but no sound

Easy, I had this problem too. The reason it isn't playing is because its not in all the way. I was getting very frustrated with this, so I kept trying to push it onto the dock to get it all the way down.
1. Play a song on your ipod/iphone so you can hear it through the device.
2. Connect your ipod/iphone to the docking station(Bose) so that you hear the chime(This lets you know its charging).
3. Pick up the docking station and firmly press the ipod/iphone down on the connector.
4. Keep pressing it and wiggling around until you hear the music begin to play through the docking station.
It may take a few tries, but you will get it.
Hope this helped!

Is Bose docking staions have any adapter to generic mp3 players??

My sansa e280 will not play on the docking station or computer.

Two problems:
1) Your Sansa (and just about any other mp3 player) will not play while it is connected to the computer - it is only supposed to play once it is disconnected from the computer
2) Your docking station might be for brand-name iPod's only - using an incompatible docking station is one possible way to ruin your player

Get a simpler external speaker system with an audio jack that runs from the headphone jack of Sansa to the input jack of the docking station.

Wont play music

Although the connections are very similar, the iHome is probably only for and iPod, and not compatible with Philips MP3 players.

The only dock I know of that is compatible is the AJ300D
