Can i put my i-tunes library on my samsung mp3 player


Yes and No...
Yes you can put the music on your Samsung from Itunes but each song must be converted to WMA instead of ACC.
Ipod/Itunes=ACC
Windows Media Player=WMA
Go to this website and download a free media converter and convert your ACC music to WMA music.

Bring music from website to itunes


There are lots of methods. You can resort to online music download website, chrome extension, or music download software. Follow below steps, to know the detailed information. Leawo Music Recorder is a super recording software to help you record various kinds of music from multiple sources like online music like YouTube, computer audio, and built-in input audio. The recorded music files will be saved into an output format of MP3 or WAV.
1. Run Music Recorder on your computer and enter the recording interface. Audio source should set firstly before music recording. In order to record the music from YouTube, we should choose the option "Record Computer Audio".

2. Click the red button "Start" to make Leawo Music Recorder begin to work. Then play the music on YouTube. You should note that the music recorder should work prior to playing YouTube music.
If you want to decide the start and duration time of the recorded music, just click the icon button "Task Scheduler" then you can finish this customized setting as per your requirement.

After the music has been recorded from YouTube, you can use iTunes to move the recorded music from computer to your iPod

Keeps telling me need aac firmware upgrade from rcaaudiovideo


I kept getting the same aac firmware message until I followed the following steps:
I downloaded the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1, and followed all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you start the program:

start the program,
remove the battery,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button when the the term "initializing" replaces "searching",
click the start button to replace the firmware.

If your computer recognizes your pearl, then backup your music first and check the "format data" box. I couldn't play aac files without formatting while upgrading the firmware.

My creative zen keeps telling me playback error so i can't listen to music. ive reset it a million times


either the songs are in the wrong format, or you have a corrupt DB.

Get firmware upgrade or recovery mode instructions from Creative's website.

If you are trying to download iTunes songs - dont!
The format of the songs are wrong in one way or another. Each Mp3 player has a product spec sheet that lists which type of music file it is compatible with (Mp3, WMA, WAV, AAC, etc). You can't play iTunes songs, which are AAC format, on a player that only accepts Mp3 or WMA format.

The second formatting issue has to do with the DRM license on the songs you have downloaded. Right click a song that gave you an error, click on "Properties," and click on the "License," "Media Usage Rights," or "Digital Rights Mgmt" tab (wording varies by configuration). Not every song allows unlimited or even one-time transfer to a "portable device" (code word for "Mp3 player" in this case). Also, some songs are fixed-term - they expire after a while - sometimes in as little as 24 hours.

To get around this, convert every song to Mp3 format. Either that, or upgrade your music service subscription to the highest pkg they have available and never cancel (Napster's basic music svc, for instance, does not let you transfer to an Mp3 player, but their "Napster To Go" upgrade does allow transfer).

I cant download music


Go to RCA web site at http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=235 and download the latest firmware upgrade first. The new firmware allows your player to read .wma files you can drop and drag files to it or us media player to transfer the music to the player, you must note this player only plays .mpy or .wma files musicmatch was the only jukebox that could convert to mpy and it doesnt exist anylonger youll have to convert your mp3 to wma files then transfer them to your player or when you rip music, rip it in wma files to begin with

Will not read the sandisk card


When RCA first came out with the Lyra series the only way to get music1.gif onto the device was by using musicmatch jukebox that would convert your mp31.gif file to mpy before downloading it to the device. But now RCA has come out with a new firm ware update for these mp3 players that improved the players playback quality plus enabled it to use .WMA files. so first go to RCA support http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/select.aspx?u=downloads and find your player and download the firmware and drivers (if needed) upgrade and install to your player its very easy and instructions are at the same site. You can now convert your music to .wma or use the free Real player that will convert mp3 to wma1.gif at the kbps that you request before loading it on. If your music is all ready in wma format you can use windows media player to send the files to your player. One last thing the .wma files that you put on your Lyra player need to be at least 128kbps or higher enhanced playback quality of wma files (160 kbps to 256 kbps).

Won't paly WMA files that I bought online!


I remember reading somewhere that if you upgrade your firmware of your H340 from US to international to get video you lose the ability to play DRM music. I from this I would that the international version can't play the copy protected files. I am not sure of the legalities in your location, but you may be able to work around the copy protection. Maybe a google search would give you some hints.
