MP3 player

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

OK, this is slightly off topic but i'm in desperate need of some help as i'm not getting any closer to home :rolleyes:

I have just bought a MP3 player with software that can be installed on the PC from a CD-rom.

The problem is the software isn't doing what it's supposed to do :angry: So, i'm stuck with a functional MP3 player and a functional windows media player on my PC but no inbetween connection (makes sense ?? :blink: ) I can't transfer the music from my PC onto the MP3 player.

Question 1: Can anyone help me ? :rolleyes:

Question 2: Is there a software i can download, from lets say Microsoft.com, that can be used for universal brands ?

Question 3: Are there any decent music sites from which i can download directly onto MP3 player, bypassing the need to save it on my PC first???

would be grateful for any help before i have a nervous breakdown :lol:

Hiyya Kaz , I trieed to emailingf youh andx yming youj but someething is totllay messed uop again and I accann't get to yahoo . GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. I thinkingly I knowing what the rprpoblem is and will fix it in a buit but I waaanntted top trying to answewering your quuueststion .

If your using windowws XP . it's really eaaasy . Is your MP3 playyer a player that playys CD's too or is it a hard drive typye of plalayer ? do you wknoowing what thee cappacity is ?

If yorjh usising a MP3

playyyaer that looks like a CD aplllayer and can play a cd . it's really easssy . All you do is to use your windoows meddia pllayer to recoording your CD's . They will be reccoooorrdes on the commpututer as a WMA file but no wwrrrriories sicne that is still a MP3 file . all you gototos to do is to burn the filee onto a blank Cd and you ccan pllay it onn youir mp3 pllaayer .

If your useing a MP3 playyer thatr is a HARRD DRIVE uniit , you need to ammaking sure that youur USB connecctioon is coenennectedded and is activveaaattinged . yoour commpuututer should see that as a new hhard drivve and thenn it's a simmple thingie of dragging annddd rroping your files frrom one drive to a otthher one .

If you hhahaving to inssert a CD rom onnto your coompututuer to mamking your MP3 pllayer workingly goodly , inswerting the CD and open it up . It may ahveing a icon to inststaling it .

Anyway , ryy ansad emaialing me and telling me what you have an dwhat soort of MP3 pllaayer it and if it's a hard drive or CD player or what an dhow muching file ccappaapcity it has and I maying ly be abale to heeelping you motroer

Kaz , OK , this helppings alot acctauualy . sinnce it's a hhard driveing unit and you having a USb connenection thibgie , you need to installl a DRIVER unit TO you commpuuuter so that it will recccogniisining the MP3 playyer . The CDrom that commed with your MP3 playyer should have a drivier in it . look for that .

Kaz , i jusut ddidied a google search of your Mp3 plalayyyering and had very little luck so , couillded you takking a pictuure of the MP3 pllayer AND the CD rom annd ppspsoting it here and if posssible , taking a ppcctue of thee CR rom when you opeing it with all the icons showiuing .

If you don't knowing how to doed that , it easyy . When you opeing your CD an dall the icones showing up , press the : PRINT SCREEN key . Nothtting will actuall happen but , then going to you START buttton an dpress statart . go to accesssororiies and then to PAINT . Open up PAINT and then COPY to that proggream and from theere , you can savving it norormaly and then , you coulded ppostying the picctuure nroromaly
