Hi

I believe it was corrupted for some reason, the best solution is to run system restore point. Just go to start menu, choose accessories, choose system tool and choose system restore and choose the restore point date which you computer fine. It will back to normal.

I hope it helps you.

I am a rookie on the computer. I dont know how to put my music to my mp4 player. Please explain step by step. I don't see where to drag the music to. Also I don't know how to file them as mp3. I have...

Mp3 players are WAY too complicated to tell you in a few simple steps how to get them to work.

The SA178 is completely incompatible with Vista - Philips has issued a warning on their website. If you do indeed have an SA178, don't even try to use it with your Vista-enabled computer.

If, by some chance, you have a different model GoGear that is compatible with Vista - you may have to go to Philips website first to get a key firmware upgrade for it to work properly.

This is all before you even begin.

Once you have verified whether it is Vista-compatible or not, below are help files that will aid you in using Windows Media Player to transfer music files to your device. If your music files are not already in Mp3 format AND they are NOT copy-protected, then you can download a free program like Media Monkey to convert the music files to mp3 format.

Here are the Windows Media Player help files:
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:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/windowsmediaplayer/wmp10/harrison_wmp10.mspx

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/faq/sync.mspx

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/mediaadvice/0085.mspx#EDF

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Click on the icon of your Mp3 player on the left-hand side of the Library

4. Click on the Songs, Tracks, or other Music Folder

5. Find a song or songs that you want to delete

6. Left-click the song once to highlight it

7. Press the “Delete” button on your computer’s keyboard

To copy (RIP) files from CD to Mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

To copy (RIP) files from CD to Mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

How can i play AVI files on my media center/player on vista

Hi,
Windows Vista Media Center won’t play Xvid and Avi files, even if Windows Media Player will play these files. If you want to add support for third party codecs including Xvid and Avi files in Vista Media Center then you need to install the media control plugin for Windows Vista Media Center.
To install the Codec please click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser..
http://damienbt.free.fr/index.php#download
This plugin allows Windows Vista Media Center to utilize te FFDShow decoder, which needs to be installed seperately ((FFDShow rev 1108 recommended: download the last version from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow-tryout)) FFDShow adds support to Vista for MPEG-4 video formats like DivX, Xvid, H.264 and also alllows MP3, AAC, Dolby AC3, and OGG Vorbis audio files to be played back.
have any other queries, please let me know..
Thank you.....

Windows vista & media player

First try uninstalling all media players....and maybe even make sure all references to them are gone if you feel comfortable using regedit (I think that's still available in Vista but I haven't had need to use it since I was "afeared" to try the 64 bit version.) Then you should be able to install the old player....but....why not look at some of the freeware players out there. They are excellent (and don't try to take control / give you junk you don't need) and simple.

RCA mp3 player software won't install on my computer.

You don't need the installer- Windows Media Player will find the device, then click on "Sync" at the top to download the music to your player.

Disney mixmax for vista

The software won't install but you don't need it in order to use it. It's a plug in that interfaces with Windows Media Player. Since Vista comes with Windows Media Player 11 you can just go to the sync page to add songs to the player.

I cant put song in my samsung yp-t9jaby/xaa

You may need to download software for your mp3 player of the manufacturer website or try using Windows Media Player 11.

To try using Windows Media Player 11 follow these steps:

Go to Windows Media Player 11, when you've opened it click on the link at the top called "Sync" once your on that your mp3 player should be there now just simply drag and drop music files where it says "Drag Items Here" on the right panel, then click "Start Sync".

Now unplug your mp3 player then see if it's worked.

If you want to try the other way download drivers for your mp3 player and vista go to this link - http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/index.asp

once your on the site fill in the information about your mp3 player then search and download drivers, but the first step using windows media player i said to do should work no problem.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.
