I have media Player on my computer. I added music to my "portable device" , it shows on the media player screen for added music, but will not show up on the player. I added it to the "music" file on the player.
Re: music will not show up on player after download
Two suggestions: put player in msc mode by going to the settings menu and choosing USB mode, then change to MSC then plug in and open the player in My Computer menu if you do not see songs on the player, back out and format player at the drive letter prompt, then add songs either manually, drag and drop to the player (not the music folder!) or sync the songs with windows media player 10 or 11

Connect your portable player to the computer and start the Windows Media player software.
In the Windows Media Player window, click the Sync button. NOTE: If
this is the first time using your portable player with Windows Media
Player, you will be prompted to name your device. Type a name for your
device and then click Finish .
Your portable player will be represented in the right pane. Drag music files to the right pane.
After you have added all of the music files, click the Start Sync button. The song files in the Sync list will be transferred to your portable player.
It may not be anything you are doing wrong. You will have to see how your player is seen buy your computer. Go to your control panel -> System -> device manager --> Look for your player there, does it show up as a Portable Device?NOTE: The player should show up on the Device Manager's right pane as: 1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC) 2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode.)It should sync with Media player if it shows up as a Portable device - but if it shows up as a Mass storage device all you have to do is drag and drop what you want into the right folder on the player.
Go to the following link and download "Multi Media Studio Version 126.96.36.199, and install it on you computer.
Once you have it installed you put you music in it (You can scan your computer with the program to find your music)
Once you have your music in the program, make sure the Multi Media Studio is running, then hook up your cord from the MP3 player to the computer.
The MP3 player will show up in the Multi Media program, you can then click on the player and see what songs you have on it.
If you want to add songs, then highlight them by right clicking and draging down on them, then click on "Add to portable device"...(this will show in the Multi Media Program) This will add the songs to your MP3 player.
I hope this helps
Ok, it took me several hours to figure out such a simple problem. I couldn't open my Emerson 3.50 up on the computer. Therefore I couldn't delete any of the music or add more. It is because it isn't downloading the right driver. You have to manually search your computer for the USB Mass Storage driver and install that. Go into Control Panel, then hardware/sound, then Device Manager. When in device manager find your portable devicse and click on it. Then click on Audio Player. choose update driver and instead of auto driver select, choose "Let me pick a driver". Then choose USB Mass Storage for the driver. Once it has updated you will see all of your songs on Media player. And it works as an MP3 player should!
make sure the the music is in mpy format which musicmatch converts it to when loading it on your device also if its in wma formate i think it needs to be 128kbps or higher also try to use your player to transfer the music to the mp3 player dont drop and drag
Here's what happened: When you first synced your player to Windows Media Player, you may have set up the automatic sync option. When this option is selected, Windows Media Player will add EVERY song, picture, etc from your Library on your computer to the player. Now, every time you sync you device, it adds every new file from your computer into the player automatically. It will even delete songs from your player that were on there before. Go into Windows Media Player 11 with your player connected to the computer (it will automatically sync and add new files one last time), move the mouse cursor over to the sync tab; a small black arrow will appear under the word "Sync"; click on the small black arrow and a dropdown menu will appear; select "Portable media device" from the dropdown menu, and another dropdown menu will appear; select "Set Up sync"; a window will appear with some information on your device - uncheck the box that says "Sync this device automatically"; click Finish; This will eliminate the problem of Windows always adding/deleting songs/files you don't want into your player.
