I would assume that the music is copy-protected and that the device will refuse to play it because it can't go out to the internet to find a license. If you ripped the music from a CD in WMP, look for an option within WMP that says ''copy protect music'' and make sure it is NOT checked.

How to put msic on it


Hi,
Install the Windows driver included in the product package before connecting your Sylvania MP3 player. Insert the included driver CD into your CD-ROM drive and run the setup file if it does not load automatically. This driver makes sure your computer can recognize and operate the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 2 Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 3 Insert the other end of the same USB cable into the USB port on the computer.
  • 4 Wait for the computer to recognize the Sylvania MP3 player as a connected device. Open your file manager or browser to locate the Sylvania MP3 player as a drive or connected device if your computer does not prompt you automatically.
  • 5 Open the file folder containing the MP3 or WMA digital music files you wish to download to your Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 6 Drag and drop the file or folder icons of your desired digital music onto the Sylvania MP3 player device icon. Drag and drop the digital music into open folders within the Sylvania MP3 player device icon as well.

    Song Formats for Mp3 Players Explained, Part I By Tha Mp3 Doctor I have seen...


    Song Formats for Mp3 Players Explained, Part I
    By Tha Mp3 Doctor
    I have seen quite a few threads around Fixya in which the stated problem is that the Mp3 or Digital Audio Player will not load the songs; will appear to load the songs but will not actually play them in the Mp3 player once disconnected from computer; will skip the songs on the player, or show only “0:00” for file length; songs “disappear” all of a sudden (although this particular problem can be caused for many reasons not covered in this article); your store-bought/burned/ripped CD’s will not load into your Mp3 player; or get the error message “File Format Not Supported.” All of these problems occur because the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not recognize. Every music file is in a certain format. The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC, WAV, RA, etc. Each Mp3 player only recognizes a certain number of these formats. Every Mp3 Player is different. You will have to check your Mp3 player’s product specifications (specs) or user’s manual to find out which formats your particular Mp3 player recognizes. When you try to download or sync the wrong file format, you will get one of the errors that I mentioned above.
    First things first. If you want to know what file type you have, then you must find the location of the individual music file on your computer, right click the title of the song, and select the option “Properties” from the menu. If you do not know how to do this, you will need to contact the manufacturer of your computer or go to www.microsoft.com. For all types of file except RA, RAX, and WMA, the “General” Tab under Properties will auto-populate. If your computer recognizes the file format, it will say something like “MPEG-3,” “Windows Media Audio” (Windows Media Player), “Real Audio” (Real Player or Real Network’s Audio), or “Advanced Audio Coding” (iTunes) or some other such designator. If your computer does not recognize the format, then you will just see a generic “Audio File,” and will have to download additional software. With WMA and some RAX files, there will also be a “License,” “Digital Rights Management,” or “Media Usage Rights” tab. I will explain these licensing tabs later, in the discussion on WMA files.
    For every type of file other than WMA, the format error is pretty straightforward. You are trying to load a completely incompatible file format that is not recognized by the Mp3 player. To give you an example, there are currently no Philips GoGear Mp3 players that will load songs from the iTunes music service. The reason they will not transfer or play correctly is that the GoGear is that iTunes gives the users their songs in .AAC format. The GoGear cannot recognize .AAC format. To resolve this problem, you will have to convert the AAC song file into Mp3 format, or some other format that the GoGear recognizes (Note to the law-abiding: converting a copyright protected file into another format might be illegal. If you are concerned, I would just re-download the same song in Mp3 or another recognized file format – this will require a separate music service other than iTunes, in this example).

    I need help in downloading music to my MP3 player. I have a Creative Zen Vplus


    Hi
    According to Creative Labs, you should either be using the Creative Media Explorer if you are new to MP3 and WMA ripping and want to build up a library or prefer to manage your Zen player as a removable disk drive, or using the Creative MediaSource Player/Organizer if you "frequently need to playback or organize music in your computer".
    The Zen player can handle three primary types of audio files too, the common MP3 format, WMA format and the more unusual WAV format. It's quite likely that your existing audio files are in one of these formats, probably WMA if you've been using Windows Media Player to rip your CDs. If you've purchased your music, it'll be in WMA DRM, that is, a version of the WMA format that includes digital rights management (so you can't just email a copy of the audio file to your pals once you've purchased and downloaded it). Those can play on the Creative Zen too, fortunately.
    To actually hook up your Creative Zen MP3 player to your computer, you'll need the included USB cable, which should connect as shown in this spiffo Creative illustration:
    http://www.askdavetaylor.com/0-blog-pics/creative-zen-audio-usb.png (chek the above figure)
    Once you've hooked it up, the Zen unit should automatically go into USB connection mode (wouldn't be very zen-like if it didn't!) and then you should be able to find the device by opening up My Computer on your desktop.
    When you really dig into the Zen user's guides, you'll find that they recommend Creative Media Explorer for transfering audio files: just click on the "Import Media" button in the application, find the MP3, WAV or WMA files already on your computer, and it should be easy to then copy them onto the player.
    That should get you going.

    Thanks for contacting fixya.com

    RCA pearl 1602-A won't register when plugged into USB port.


    When my computer wouldn't recognize my Pearl, these are the steps I followed after downloading the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1

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

    You might want to try leaving the "format data" box unchecked the first time. If that doesn't work and allow you to backup your music, bite the bullet and format the data area.

    After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again. It also fixed my aac-error problem.

    MP3 FROZEN


    Make sure the songs are in the correct format first - no iTunes allowed. it's best to use songs in mp3 format - they don't have the million problems that WMA files have.

    If the pc is not recognizing GoGear: Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

    Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

    Disney mix max problem


    Connect your player to the USB port on your computer using the USB connector on the Mix Max. A 'MIX-MAX' window will appear in your My Computer folder which is the player's internal memory. To add more files and songs to your player simply drag and drop MP3 or WMA files from anywhere on your computer into the 'MIX-MAX' window.

    For Windows XP, you can utilize Windows Media Player 10 software to convert music on an audio CD into MP3 or WMA format as follows:

    Click on the 'Tools' menu option at the top menu bar, then click on 'Options'; the Option setting menu will appear. Click on Rip Music and set the Rip music to the desired location on the newly ripped music (MP3 format or Windows Media Audio format). Adjust the audio quality as desired. When finished, click 'OK' to confirm the settings.
    Click on the 'Rip Music' icon to start ripping the music to your computer.
    When the music tracks are ripped; connect the player to your computer. Open the 'MIX-MAX' window and open the ripped music location window.
    To add the transferred/ripped music file/songs to your player simply drag and drop the MP3 and/or WMA files into the 'MIX-MAX' window.
    When the files are finished loading into the player, follow the 'Safely Remove Hardware' procedure as shown below.
    Note: For Windows 98SE, Windows ME, and Windows 2000, please use the Windows Media Player 9 to convert music on an audio CD into MP3 or WMA format.

    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.
