How do i copy music to my mp3


You can sync your music and pictures to your player using Windows Media Player.


By default, Windows Media Player automatically loads all the music and picture files

stored in your My Music and My Pictures folders into the library. If you add new files to
these folders, they will also be automatically added to the library.


If Windows Media Player has selected to sync your device automatically, you can choose not to sync your entire media library. You can choose what you wish to sync from existing

playlists or create new playlists. These playlists you have selected will then sync to your player every time you connect it to your computer.


1 Click the down arrow beneath the Sync tab and select Philips GoGear SA60xx > Set Up Sync.

> The Device Setup dialog box appears.


2 In the Available playlists pane, select the existing playlists you want to sync and then

click Add.

That is an error that is thrown out by Windows Media Player if it cannot locate the file, You might of accidently deleted it, moved it or renamed it. Try to find it and put it back into your library.

Syncing with Windows Media Player


Place the music files that you want to transfer into the My Music folder of your computer - Windows will re-read them, and then you can synchronize to your device. Also, make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged on the mp3 player - it probably isn't, but just check.

Sync


make a folder on your desktop, copy the files that you want from your 'music' folder, and paste them into this folder. Then copy all of the files in the folder you just created and paste them into your mp3 player. Open the mp3 player in 'my computer' and just right click and paste. Your music files should go over. Once you are happy delete the folder from the desktop or keep it for further use.

Windows media player not working


Very the file you are trying to play is still there , if it is then create a new play list by allowing WMP to scan your system for playable media. If this fails or the above aint the latter then i'd suggest you uninstall WMP and reinstall it. WMP is in the control panel / add or remove components / Windows Components. You can also log in to microsoft web site and download the latese WMP and install it .

Error message when I try to play a cd,dvd or rip


Before we try blaming a faulty cd/dvd unit lets check out faulty Windows Media Player Software. Is Media Player up to date? Try installing iTunes set as default. That will force the cd/dvd association to iTunes. See if the player works or what the error is...If it works...Then re-open Media player make it the default again and see it what it does. or This is from the Microsoft site: Windows Media Player cannot find the file. This error message usually indicates the link from an item in Media Library to its associated digital media file is broken. Items in Media Library are links to digital media files that are stored on your computer, a network drive, a removable storage card, an Internet server, or another location. Links can be broken for one of the following reasons: * A link to a temporary file from the Internet cache (for example, a file from the Temporary Internet Files folder) was added to Media Library and that file was later deleted. * A link to a digital media file was added to Media Library and the file was later deleted. To repair a link Do one of the following: * If you deleted or moved the file, replace it to its original location. * If you moved the file, right-click the item in Media Library, click Error Details, and then enter the new location of the file. To delete a link Do one of the following: * Right-click the item in Media Library, click Error Details, and then select the Remove file from Media Library check box. * Right-click the item in Media Library, and then click Delete from Library. Good Luck, Tim
