I have figured out how to download songs from albums to the hard drive and then from the hard drive to the mp3 player, my problem is, we have to play the whole song whilst listenin to it in order to download it to the hard drive, I want to know is there a quicker way to download to the hard drive without listen and playing it song by song, as this is a very long process.
Use a computer to rip your CD's
Then copy them to a memory stick. Then you can plug the memory stick in and copy the files to the hard drive that way. Each files takes about 5-10 seconds.
Hope that helps

When you connect the MP3 player with the supplied USB cable to your computerand the computer detect the player as an external storage device or a Removabledisk, you can then view the folder on your MP3 player. Open the music folderand create a new folder on the player exactly the same way you create a folderon your computer's hard drive. To organise your music, make a folder name withthe name of the music album and place the album's MP3 files in this folder from your computer. You will then be able to select the music you want to play by the music albumfolder.
There are a couple of wats to put music on a MP3 player.
You can download MP3 music files from the Internet, some Internet sites have free downloads and others you have to pay to download songs and albums.
You can convert your CDs into MP3 files can copy them to your MP3 player. There are freeware programs on the Internet that convert CD songs to MP3 format, the CD song is rip/converted to MP3 file.
Microsoft Media Player can also rip CD songs into MP3 files as well as playing MP3 files/songs.
First plug it into the USB port on your computer. Wait for the operating system to detect it and install the appropriate driver for it. Then go to My Computer and it'll be there as a Removable Disk. However, the first thing you have to do with a new Removable Device such as this is, right-click on the drive and Format the drive. This will let you operating system understand and allocate space on the drive for your songs. Then you can copy and paste any mp3 onto it. Some mp4's are protected though so they won't play on it. Hope this helps
I recently got one of these and had the same problems. These were solved as follows.
Firstly, for small devices such as USB sticks and MP3 players they must be formated as FAT32 otherwise they cant be read, NTFS does not appear to be supported.
Secondly, for portable hard drives they must be also formated to FAT32 they also need to be externaly powered. For my 2 1/2" lap top drive the power from the USB port on the machine was not enough to fire up the drive I had to use a Y cable plugged into a mains usb charger to boost the power it then worked fine. Also be a little patient as it will take a little while to read the drive, this will depend on the drive capacity but you should hear the drive ticking over as it does this
