MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable.For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable tothe MP3 player and the computer.

Music file problem:
Your music might not be compatable with your MP3 player.

like you used mac to put the music on but you try to use windows to delete the files.
Mac uses a diffrent file system to windows.

and highlight one or more songs to transfer between your player and your
drag and drop actions to transfer music files and folders to your player
your music in folders. Your player will play your music folder by folder so
that you can organize your music by artists and albums. You can drag and drop
entire folders to your player. Your player will play the music files that are
not inside folders first followed by the music files inside folders
You can try this, but I was completely unable to get a similar model, the SA4111 to work on my computer using any method at all - this was not their best product:
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.
Make sure you have installed the Philips Device Manager from the product CD. This includes the drivers for the SA4010.
File transfer is done using the Sync function of Windows Media Player.
If you have already installed the software, and are trying to transfer songs with Media Player, try the repair or restore option from the Philips Device Manager. This will format and re-flash the firmware on the player.
If the player still won't take your files, make sure you are using .MP3 or .WMA files. The SA4010 will not take any other formats. (such as .AAC)
If you have the correct file type, then the problem may be due to USB driver conflict. Follow this link for more information:
