20 Most Recent Lexar MDA256-100 MP3 Player Questions & Answers

Probably because the files you are trying to play are not .MP3 files (an .MP# file has a name that looks like 'songname.mp3). Those are the only files your player recognizes and can play.

This is most likely a file format or digital rights management issue. Make sure the files are in a compatible format. The computer can play them because it is just looking at the player as a storage device and does not rely on it for playback. If the files are .wma, try converting them to .mp3. Your device may have come with software that will perform this function for you.

Is it packed when your daughter gave you the mp3? If so, there should be a manual in the box. Or download it from Internet.Yes, music can be saved to the SD card. In fact generic sd is okay.electronics wholesale

This happens to every MP3 player eventually. You will need to reset it and reformat. Sorry, there is no easy fix. The MP3 system software has crashed for an unknown reason. It happens.

Often, a crash can be caused by static that you, me, or anybody else can even detect or feel. All we can do is reset the device, format it, and install all of our stuff again. I have had this happen to Sansa, IPOD, TVIO, and others. Just walking across a wooden floor can build up a static charge in your body of over 500 volts, and you would never know it. When you hear the crackle of clothes being pulled out of a dryer, or feel the shock from grabbing a doorknob, the charge is in the tens of thousands of volts! It only takes a 50 volt static discharge to disrupt flash memory like that found in a MP3 player, jump drive, cell phone, etc....

Find the RESET button, and after the unit is turned on, hold it in with a paperclip or something similar for 3 seconds. This will return the unit to factory default, and you can reload it with all your stuff.

A good rule of thumb is that before you touch any portable electronic device, touch the biggest piece of metal that is near you, which will drain any static charge in your body. This is purely preventative, and not a fix-all, but it has helped me overall in not having so many problems with my personal portable electronics.

Good Luck, and thank You for using FixYa!

Go to lexar .com then click on the live support via chat ask for a firmware upgrade for your unit they will email it to you.The upgrade should be done via windows XP operating system .Vista is not yet supported.

your external memory card must be empty before inserting to your mp3 player then download files to Lexar.com...let me hear from you how it goes...

pls dont forget to rate good luck!

To format it Connect it to the computer, go to My computer-> right click on the mp3/mp4 player after it is displayed-> select format-> Format it as FAT32 File system. Formatting the MP3/MP4 player will delete all the songs/data from the player. So, backup all data before formatting it. Hope this helps...
