Question about HP Jornada 568 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Media Player issue

I've an interesting little issue with Media Player on my Jornada 568. If I play an mp3 or wma file, it plays at about double speed (like a 33rpm record played at 78...). It does this even on the sample sounds that came with the unit. I've applied the HP ROM upgrade, the PPC 2002 upgrade and the WMP update, with no change. The best advice I've got so far is to send the unit in for hardware repair - but since my whole life is on the thing, I'm loth to do that.. Anybody had similar experience..???

Weird! I would try an alternative Windows CE MP3 player such as Xaudio or PalmPlayer to see if they do the same thing. I have trouble believing it's hardware related because AFAIK the MP3 decoding is all done in software, but I guess it's possible.

What am I doing wrong with transferring audio files to the player and how can I transfer WMA audio files to the Coby MP-620 MP3 Player?


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 .

I am trying to download an audiobook file (WMA) from my library website to my Coby 601. The library uses a program called overdrive to download to handheld devices. It says my Coby does not recognize WMA...


The player does in fact play WMA files. However, if the audiobook is a protected audiobook that you purchased, the Coby device cannot play what is called DRM protected files. While Overdrive supports the playback of these files, the Coby player may not, or you no longer have authorization to play the file.

Eclipse cld2 player won't play with headphones, says no files, but when pluged into computer file shows up on laptop and will play through media player? Why can't player find files downloaded on it? ...


This mp3 player is only compatible with mp3 files. If you can play the songs with your media player, chances are that you have the wrong file format for your player. WMA and m4A file formats are not compatible.
To convert your audio files, use the free program found at this location. http://download.cnet.com/Koyote-Free-Mp3-Wma-Converter/3000-2140_4-10442362.html
Remove the incompatible files from your mp3 player.
Import the mp3 files into your media player, then transfer them to your MP3 player.
Good luck!

Cannot play wma audio book on mp3


Audiobooks in WMA format have a restrictive DRM-license that does not allow their use on certain types of mp3 player. To use the WMA file that you already have, you will need to use an illegal DRM-stripper such as Tunebite - but, that's illegal.

You will have to stick to audiobooks that are in mp3 format - and even then, there are a few asterisks - you may not be able to resume where you left off without fast-forwarding. But at least you will be able to play the file.

I can't get my MP3 to download and play WMA Format


Here is the asterisk behind WMA compatibility - there are two types of WMA files - protected and unprotected. 90% of WMA files are DRM-protected, hence they are either not usable in mp3 players that say they can play WMA's, or the song has a DRM restriction on it that prevents it from being played on an mp3 player without purchasing additional rights.

To avoid the problem completely, only download songs that are in mp3 format. It may be more expensive initially, but they are better in the long-term - even if you found a WMA file that eventually works with your mp3 player, the protected WMA files have an expiration date, so they would stop working after 30 days, 90 days, 1 year, or 2 years depending on the specific license for each song. Mp3 files never expire, never give you error messages, and work with nearly (if not all) 100% of mp3 players.

Good luck!

Wont play wma files


Different players will accomodate different formats. You might have to reformat the WMA files on your PC and then transfer to your unit.

I can't download music from my computer to my InVion 256MB MP3/WMA/REC. Do I need something special? Computer says it recognizes new hardware but I have'nt been able to download music


Are you getting a specific error message when you try to transfer songs? Does it look like they are transferrring, and then do not play? Are you just looking for the program that you would use to transfer songs? I would suggest Windows Media Player. Is iTunes your music service? If so, they will not work with this mp3 player.

You can also drag and drop the Mp3 or WMA files from Windows Explorer:
Try this - connect your mp3 player to computer --> double-click on My Computer --> double-click on the icon of the mps player --> double-click on the music folder --> drag and drop the music files to a folder/desktop of your own choosing

Check the format of the song - this player will play mp3 or wma, but if your wma's do not have "transfer rights" then you cannot transfer them to this or any other player.
