This could actually be an easy fix. If you have any files on the player that are not WMA or MP3 files, or that you've stored your music in folders - either way it could simply stop the drive from playing.

Incompatible Music Files: If you have loaded a music file that is not compatible, it simply won't play. The SwiMP3 player works with mp3 or wma files, but not aac (like from iTunes).

Solution: Remove the incompatible files. Convert your other music files to mp3 or wma, and if you are importing your songs direct from itunes, you'll need to convert them to mp3s first.



Incompatible NON-Music Files: An MP3 player is similar to a Thumb Drive or Flash Drive because it can hold any kind of file that will fit in the drive's capacity. However, if you have loaded an incompatible file - including JPEGs, Cover Art, Word Docs, anything that is not an MP3 or WMA file, the player simply can't translate it into music.

Solution: Remove the incompatible files, leaving only your mp3 or wma files in your root directory.



Folders: The mp3 player is not able to open folders and play music files stored inside, to the Swimp3 player the folder is simply an un-playable file.

Solution: Open the folders, move or copy the music files into the root directory (remember, mp3 or wma - not aac), then delete the folders.

I hope you find this helpful.

How do i upload new music to my swimp3 and remove old songs on it? I tired to drag it in but it says the file is full.

IF you are using a MAC, when you remove songs from the unit you must empty the trash on your desktop to completely remove the songs from the unit.

One earpiece is sounding scratchy

Typically the Swimp3 player sounds great right out of the package. In fact we've had many customers who have used it successfully for years. Like all electronics though, sometimes there is simply a problem.

Your new player is backed by the manufacturer's 90 day warranty. You can contact the store or website for an exchange or contact Finis directly to get a warranty replacement. http://www.finisinc.com/Contact/

I charged my swimP3 but it won't turn on when disconnected from the computer.

The Swimp3 Player does need to be charged for at least 3 hours for the best experience. Here are some tips that could help solve your problem:

Problem: The player doesn't turn on.

Suggestion: Charge the battery in the player for at least three hours, this will allow it to fully charge. You can charge it by plugging it into the USB port on your computer or by using a USB wall charger (sold separately). If you do choose to use a computer to charge it, be sure your computer is turned on. If there is no power to the computer, then no power is going to the USB port to charge the Swimp3 player.

Additional Tip: The charging answers are in the Green Indicator Light.

If the green light is flashing off and on, then your SwiMP3 player is charging

If the light is solid green, the SwiMP3 player is fully charged

If you have no green light - then it is not receiving a charge - check the connection, make sure its plugged in properly, or check to see that there is power from the computer or USB wall charger.



Problem: I have charged my player, the light is solid green, but no music plays.


Suggestion 1: Have you loaded music onto the player? Try adding a few mp3 or wma files and test it again.

Suggestion 2: If the power is on, you loaded music, clicked the Play button and no music comes out, press and hold the RESET button for 4 seconds. It's kind of like rebooting your computer when it crashes. Many times a simple reset clears up any challenges.



If that doesn't work, then it could be the

* volume

* incompatible files or

* folders




Volume: On some units the factory volume setting is very low.

Solution: Try turning up the volume by pressing and holding the "+" PLUS button. If you click the "+" button it changes the song, pressing and holding the button will actually control the volume. And if its too loud, press and hold the "-" MINUS button to bring the volume back down.





Incompatible Music Files: If you have loaded a music file that is not compatible, it simply won't play. The SwiMP3 player works with mp3 or wma files, but not aac (like from iTunes).

Solution: Remove the incompatible files. Convert your other music files to mp3 or wma, and if you are importing your songs direct from itunes, you'll need to convert them to mp3s first.



Incompatible NON-Music Files: An MP3 player is similar to a Thumb Drive or Flash Drive because it can hold any kind of file that will fit in the drive's capacity. However, if you have loaded an incompatible file - including JPEGs, Cover Art, Word Docs, anything that is not an MP3 or WMA file, the player simply can't translate it into music.

Solution: Remove the incompatible files, leaving only your mp3 or wma files in your root directory.



Folders: The mp3 player is not able to open folders and play music files stored inside, to the Swimp3 player the folder is simply an un-playable file.

Solution: Open the folders, move or copy the music files into the root directory (remember, mp3 or wma - not aac), then delete the folders.

Songs from CDs won't play

Nick,

This is an easy fix. Most Mp3 players, the Aqua Mp3 player included, need to have the files in an mp3 format - not the CD format.

Simply convert your CD to Mp3 files on your computer using a software like Media Monkey http://www.mediamonkey.com/ (which has a free version). Once they are converted, then you can simply drag and drop them on to your Aqua Waterproof Mp3 player.

If you're using a Mac, then you can use iTunes to import the CD and then convert the files to mp3 within iTunes.

I hope this helps you get in the water and swimming to music soon.

Downloading Ares free music

The current version of the swimp3 player will support "unlocked" music in the WMA or MP3 format. As long as you're able to create an unlocked or unencrypted version of the music or audio, you can simply copy that to the Finis Swimp3 Hard Drive. Like most mp3 players, the Drive has similar capabilities as a thumb drive or SD Card - so it's just drag and drop.

Of course, you're responsible for your own music ownership experience.

Have fun Swimming with Music.

Playing

I had the same problem and it took me while to figure it out, but I did. Thanks to a website telling me how to re-format the whole thing. I went to "my computer" and right clicked on "removeable device" and clicked on format. It should read "fat" not "fat32" then I clicked "start" and then when I loaded stuff on it worked. Good luck!
