Question about Element Electronics GC823 MP3 Player
: The reason your
player says no files is because the files from I-tunes are in an
unsupported format called MP4 or MPEG layer 4. The music formats that
you MP3 Player supports are MP3, WMA or WAV files.
: Why do some of my MP3 files not play when transferred to the player?
A: First, make sure the Element MP3 player you are operating supports the MP3 file that you are attempting to play. Please reference www.elementelectronics.com to look up your model’s specifications.
Check to make sure there is no copy protection on your MP3 files. You can determine if the file is protected by right clicking on the file and selecting properties. In the properties window you can find whether the file has any copy protection placed on it. This normally happens while importing music files through Windows Media Player. To make sure that Windows Media Player does not copy protect music follow these steps.
1. From the Windows Media Player screen Click “Tools” on the menu bar at the top of your screen and select “Options”. If the menu bar does not appear, right click on the “Rip” button at the top of your screen and select “More Options”
2. Click on the “Rip Music” tab, uncheck “copy protect music”.
3. Click ok to save the new setting.

SOURCE: it keeps saying file error
Check the format of the music you are playing and if you have music that requires the license it will load the music but not play. It will show up as a file error.
