Maybe its your windows system, Try Vista or updated version of XP if thats what you have.

As far as i know MS-DOS is a thing on 98!

Ill not transfer files. Error message "no files were transferred because the preference of "transfer new files only" was set. What does this mean!

A bit unclear question . As far as I understood you should take out your memory card .. copy any existing files to laptop using external card reader . Then format the card within your camera itself. Then reset the settings again. I think your problem will be solved

I know from reading the user manual that it is meant to play WMA
files but you may have to use the coby media manager to convert the files to mp3 or possibly to wma ( that the player can read )
I have similar problems with mp3 files that do not play in my car mp3 player .

Problem with yahoo mess 10..pls help

1. Before you attempt to transfer any files or photos, be sure that they are saved to your computer and that none are open, to avoid getting an error message

2. You may want to consider doing several smaller file transfers rather than a single large file transfer.

3. If you or your friend is behind a firewall and you're having difficulty transferring files or photos, try temporarily turning off the firewall to see if you're able to send them.

"to continue sychronization" error message on music transfer

the best way to solve this is by formatting your mp3 player. at first format your mp3 player, then transfer few songs from some other drive in "my computer", not from my documents. then your mp3 player should work.

Cannot transfer files in to sony 4gb pen drive

try a different usb slot ..if that doesnt works then it sounds like your pen drive is damaged .. that can happen in several ways .. if you carry it around with you, make sure the cap is on ... it can get static zapped otherwise .. also the gold fingers inside can get dirty .. another way the drives are damaged is to remove them while data is still being written to the drive ... wait until the light is no longer flashing before removing .. if you are using win98 or winMe .. then make sure you turn off the device before removing ..

Transferring music from pc to mass storage device.


You said that you checkd the properties of all the 150 tracks right.

150 tracks is 560 MB.

The error message you are getting informs that there is nothing wrong with the player or something.

This eror rfers that the source file cannot be located by the system to transfer or the source file is corrupted.

Try the other source file.

Try transferring the other newly downloaded file.

Hope it helps.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
