These types of devices are not made to be able to transfer songs from the device to a computer as to reduce the likelihood of illegal copying of songs - It might be a case where you just need to put all the songs back onto you computer and in future make sure you backup all your data. I would listen to the Sony technician.

Sony Bean MP3... • Answered on Oct 25, 2013


So, you are intending to buy a new MP3 player. You have a wide variety of options to chose from. Creative, Coby, or an RCA MP3 player are just a few of them. It may even be a cell phone that doubles as an MP3 player, or a handheld game console such as Sony PSP (PlayStation Portable). The next important step is knowing, how to store music on my MP3 player, so that you can listen to music while you're commuting to and from work. This article will tell you how to download music onto MP3 device.

How to Download Songs from Internet?

The first step is to download music from the Internet. You can download songs from websites, who allow you to do it for free, or you may have to pay for the downloads. One of the ways is going to the Apple iTunes music store and pay 99 cents for every song you want to download.

Note that these songs are protected by Apple's FairPlay DRM (Digital Rights Management), so you can play the songs only on the Apple iPod, MP3 players. Other online stores encrypt the songs using the Windows Media Digital Rights Management (WMDRM) for security purposes. In order to decrypt and playback these files, you need the license key. If your license has expired, you will not be able to playback the files. Your MP3 player has to support WMDRM, in order to play these audio files.

You can also use a music subscription service such as eMusic. For $11.99 per month, you can download upto 24 songs a month. Other online music stores are Napster, MusicNow, URGE, and Yahoo! Music, which also allow music download, for a certain charge that you have to pay. The other way is to simply search for the song title and artist name on Google, and download the song from some website which allows you to do so for free. You can also download entire albums using BitTorrent.

How Do I Download Music onto an MP3 Player?

Another way to get MP3 files is by ripping your music CDs. In this way, you can convert your music to MP3 or WMA (Windows Media Audio) format. To do this, first insert the music CD into the computer's CD drive. Then you can rip your CD using Windows Media Player, to encode your music to the WMA format. Note that you should deselect the "Copy Protect Music" option so that your music files are compatible with most MP3 players.

The next step is to download music onto MP3 player. This means to copy or sync the songs you want, to your MP3 player. You must be wondering, how do I download songs to an MP3 player? You have to connect the MP3 player to the computer using a USB (Universal Serial Bus) cable. If your MP3 player has USB-MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) support, then even better. The Windows operating system will automatically detect the device, which will be shown as a USB flash drive.

You can find the device by going to "My Computer". Then you can copy and paste the files from your computer to the MP3 player. Otherwise, you can go to "Windows Explorer" and drag and drop the files to your MP3 player. Note that you need to drop the songs into the right directory, or the MP3 player will not be able to play the files.

You can also use the media management functions of Windows Media Player to transfer the files. Most MP3 players have special software available from the manufacturer to sync the files. For example, the Creative Zen MP3 player has the "Creative Media Explorer" to allow you to import the audio. Note that you may also have to install specific drivers for the MP3 player.

Most MP3 players can handle audio files in three formats: MP3, WMA, and WAV. There are also other file formats such as OGG and Apple's AAC (Advanced Audio Coding). MP3 players can also work as FM radio, so you can listen to radio stations that are available in your city. They can also record voice. You have to simply press the Record button, and speak to the device, and then playback what you have just said.

MP3 players also have other functions such as the ability to view photos and playback videos. Hope this article has helped you to learn, how to download music onto an MP3 player. Now, that you know how to copy music to MP3 players, you can enjoy listening to music whenever and wherever you want to.

The charging/connection port is damaged or the battery is simply burnt, you either have to buy a new battery, and if that doesn't work, it get's worst, buy a new mp3.

--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.

Probably pulled it out too fast and caused a shock accross the pins. Do the USB ports on the laptop still work?

From there, you have to press the big red arrow in the middel of the playlist and mp3 player memory to transfer the file. I should all be found in the main screen of sonicstage. Now try that out.

There is a clip on the side that allows the usb port to pop up. Just jiggle it a bit and it will pop up.

The main point is to act quickly, not to give the chemicals time to react. The longer you leave it before you did all you could, the more time you gave corrusion and other such reactions to take place. in any case of dropping into liquid follow these steps: Remove the battery immediately; rinse in distilled water. Why? Distilled water isn't ionised and has a high breakdown dielectric; ordinary tap water is ionised and conductive. leave it in your airing cupboard for a week to dry (if there's any sign of damp anywhere, just put it back in the cupboard for another week). Reattach battery. If it doesn't appear to malfunction (bear in mind the battery may be flat), try putting it on the charger. If it appears to charge (and holds the charge), and still works, you've probably got away with it. If dropped into a soft or sweet drink rinse more thoroughly in distilled water before drying. Carbonated, sugared drinks and hot, sweet coffee are the worst. You may be lucky if it survives. If the liquid is greasy (e.g. coffee with cream, soup etc.) You can use a mix of iso-propyl alcohol and water. IT types use it to clean computers. The water dissolves all the water soluble sugar etc. and the IPA dissolves the grease. A word of advice for the future: leather cases (the ones with leather, not elastic, sides) are your friend. They can protect from splashes and even brief immersion. Good luck

I have the same problem. So I pulled off the Play button and there's a small little stick there and I just tried to pull it out and it kind of helped.
