First you want to go to device manager to uninstall your device...to get to device manager click on start, right click on my computer and go to properties...click on hardware then device manager...then uninstall your device and unplug it once you do that...open up your windows media player and if you dont have the most recent one you might want to update to WMP11....then you want to click on tools, options, privacy,..you want to clear the history and the caches...then you can go ahead and plug your device in the back of your computer..windows and WMP should recognize the device properly...

We can't download music from our computer to the GoGear


Here's what you want to do. Use Windows Media Player to re-Rip the CD's in Mp3 format. Go to Windows Media Player 11 --> Rip --> Rip Options --> Format --> Mp3 (you can get to Rip options by moving the mouse over the Rip tab, and a small black arrow will appear - click on the arrow).

Once the songs are in true mp3 format, you can then use the Sync tab in Windows Media Player to transfer the songs.

Unfortunately, many of the newer Philips players do not recognize DRM-encryption, which is why the songs would have worked in one player and not this one.

When I rip a CD onto Windows Media Player, it comes out, 1. 2. .3 ...10. How Can You get the songs to be printed instead of numbers representing the songs.


Before you select to rip the songs, edit them by renaming them - song - artist - album etc... then rip the music. Right click and select edit, then rename, press the tab key to go to the next selection artist etc.. and rename. You can also rip the music then go online to let media player find the details, but they do not always find the right details for the correct albums, so I always rename my albums myself

I hope this helps

How do u download songs on a mp3 player


Okay I know how to download songs from CDs and limewire. If you have windows media player, plug up the mp3 player then open up windows media player. Put the cd in and go to rip, choose the songs you want to rip off the cd. Then go to sync and synchronize it to the device. From limewire you type in the songs that you want to download to limewire. Open up my computer and go to your device plugged in. Then drag the items over to the devices open window. Also it helps if you just play around with it on the computer!

Downloading music to my delstar DS 801


You need to subscribe to an online music service or use Windows Media Player to download songs:

The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

It's telling me to synchronize music that I own (copied from cds)


Use Windows Media Player to rip the songs into Mp3 format - make sure you select mp3 in the Rip options. Real Player rips songs from CD into the wrong format.

Sansa MP3 M240 No volume when playing songs, says to synch


Where did you download the songs? Napster?Rhapsody? Any online music stores? Try synchronizing them using their software. If you have ripped songs from a cd you may want to rip them again and before ripping them check this option on your windows media player software. Tools > Options then under RIP MUSIC remove the check mark that say's Copy Protect Music or choose the file format as MP3. Then format the device using the windows media player software(for version 10 = click on the sync tab then choose the pencil like icon on the far right, for version 11 = right click on the sync tab choose the player and choose format) use after doing that rerip the songs using the windows media player software.
