Re: 500 songs, all gone but wont allow other downloads, "to full"

Use settings "format" on mp3 player. This will delete any hidden files. If you download in one format (say like Ubuntu) and delete them under another (say Windows), files can remain in *.trash which is hidden. To avoid this in the future, try deleting with shift+del as it will bypass the trash folder.

I purchased a Coby 4 GB MP3 Player. It stated that it will hold 2000 songs but became full at 500. Did I download incorrectly?


When it says 2000 it means that it can hold 2000 songs, considering that each song is 2 MB. So, 2MB * 2000=4000MB=4GB.
So your songs were much larger than that.

WESTERN DIGITAL 500GB MY BOOK/ SOMEHOW A MP3 FILE COPIED TO IT, AT 92MB, BUT I CANT PLAY IT OR DELETE IT/UNREADABLE AND CORRUPT/ TRIED WEB FORUMS, BUT I DONT WANT TO REFORMAT AS IT IS NEARLY FULL OF LOTS...


Download a program called Hijackthis from Download.com

Once you run it, click on the button that says "Open the Misc Tools Section" and then choose "Delete file on reboot"

Select the file from your external HD, and click okay. It will ask you to restart your computer, so be sure that you have everything closed down and ready to restart.

Please Rate. Thanks :-)

I would advise to also run a Virus scan (I advise running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, also from Download.com) on your external, because it sounds like a virus. Just FYI.

I HAVE DOWNLOWDED SONGS BUT A LOT OF SONGS WONT COPY TO MP3


Okay, fist, you need to make sure the player is good (boots up, goes to menu, etc.). next, you need to put all of the songs into media player, then SYNCH them to the player. If you can't do that, try putting all of the songs into a folder called "music" and then put them into a subfolder called "albums." it should work shortly afterwards.

Sansa Clip 2gb only plays parts of songs


The songs you have loaded have a restrictive license on them that only allows full playback on a computer, not on an mp3 player. If you only download songs in mp3 format, you will never have this problem.

Downloading


Songs from most music services have what is called DRM encryption on them - it is a license that will only allow you to do certain things with the song. Your songs probably have play rights, but not transfer rights. Upgrade your music service subscription.

Wont download all my songs!


check the options to see if the option to allow songs with digital media rights is enabled. This sometime prohibits the songs from being downloaded to the player if they were downloaded from itunes or rhapsody.
