I have bought a Curtis MPK2083UK MP3 player and cannot seem to get any music downloaded to it - it keeps telling me the file is empty. The music file is on it but seems to be under "Recorder"...

If your CD is not working, then use a computer that has a working CD and copy the files off this CD disc to a USB flash memory stick. Then insert this USB memory stick into your computer that has the faulty CD drive and install the software from this USB flash memory stick.

I dont know how to install the firmware for my mp4 i really need help


Hello,

Do you have the CD for the SMPK8858 ?

Then put the CD into the CD drive or DVD drive of your computer and explore the CD, for the firmware update look under:
\Firmware Upgrade tool\ConsumerUpdate 3.1.2.0\setup.exe
1. explore or double click folder Firmware Upgrade tool
2. explore or double click folder ConsumerUpdate 3.1.2.0
3. run or double click file setup.exe: this will start the installation of the update software on your computer.

After the installation of the setup.exe file, run the firmware update program to start the update for your player.


Most Sylvania players will have a CD provided. When you don't have it, download the driver (a zip file) from Curtis:
http://www.curtisint.com/html/CustService/Manuals/SYL_SMPK8858_DRIVER.ZIP
After the download unzip the file with WinZip or WinRar:
now look for the firmware installation program under
SYL_SMPK8858_DRIVER \ SMPK8858 \ Firmware Upgrade tool\ConsumerUpdate 3.1.2.0 \ setup.exe
Double click the setup.exe, the same procedure as when using the CD.

There is also a manual for SPMK8858 (a pdf file) online:

Won't recognize an MP3 format CD


Usually a disc with audio files is not encoded with MP3's, but, rather, audio files. You can check this by manually opening the disc (right click on the player when the disc is in it), and looking at the files. If you only see marker (files of a few kilobits) in "MP3" format, then the disc needs to be "ripped" into MP3 format.

The ratio for audio to MP3 is 10 :1--this means a CD of 700 MB size with 10 tracks will become an MP3 collection of 10 tracks approximately 70 MB in size (this is a standard 128kbps audio quality CD) If the encoding is less (64 or 32kbps), the size of the resulting MP3 is smaller.

The hands down best ripping software to convert your audio CD to MP3's is called Goldwave. Although Nero and Winamp have functionality on a limited basis for this task, Goldwave is a far superior software package to not only rip, but also edit your creations. Once you have installed Goldwave, you use the OPEN CD button to read your files---then save them to your hard drive (in what CODEC or quality you want---MP3, Apple AIF, OggVorbis, etc.etc

Epson Stylus SX100 installation CD is not read


Hello,

There are chances that the installation CD is faulty itself. If it is the original manufacturers installation CD, and appears to be free of scratches and smudges, this is most likely not the case. I would insert a combination of at least one other software CD and one recordable CD in the CD drive of your computer CD/DVD drive to see if these discs are being scanned, read, and show data on those CDs. We want to pinpoint the problem, to make sure that the hardware failure of CD Drive is not to blame, but it could be.

A Disc can spin around in an optical drive, and have laser read issues, and still end up being faulty, and eventually need to be replaced.

If you determine that you need a new Printer installation CD/DVD, and all other data discs work fine in that optical drive, you can download printer driver software directly from the manufacturers web site.

If you provide me all the model and manufacturer details of your new printer, I can locate this direct download link for you, and provide that to you.

Best of Luck!

Can't convert vinyl to an audio file


Hi there; I had the same problem, not being able to install or even view the files on the disc. I have XP therefore out of curiosity I ran it on a PC with Vista and it worked; so I promptly transferred the disc back into my disc drive and bingo it worked. .....Don't ask me how...but it did. Good luck

Downloading software


I feel someone is a little peeved but hey calm down
'HONESTLY.... NO WORRIES & NO PROBLEM'
You have a disk to download music.

Is this a floppy disk or is it a cd?

Some computers nowadays dont come with floppy drives due to They are a little out of date.

Most drivers/programs ect.. are now usually on cd or dvd because it is quicker/easier & well.... Quite cheap.
Now then...
1 stly. If it is a floppy disk read what it says on the front & do a google search for the exact same software
for example...
google (blah blah blah software free download)

& download / run
(blah blah blah) being the software name

IF you have a cd & the cd is smaller than the usual size cd
(DONT WORRY)
These smaller disks are no different to an ordanary cd except they have less disk space on them & they are cheaper.

Put it in your disk drive (In the centre) Close the drive & double click (if it doesnt auto-run) on your cd drive & click on the program & it should load up all being Well.
Note:
You DO NOT have to install software for putting music onto these mp3 players.
If you have a music cd,you Could copy it onto the mp3 just buy popping the cd into the cd drive & copying the track to the mp3 player.
You Also DO NOT have to have software for downloading music onto your mp3 players.
Head over to the I.tunes website (for example) search & find the music you want & download to your mp3.
