MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

Unless you are using Windows98, your computer should have the drivers it needs to recognize your player.

You can try re-installing the latest Rio software.

Plug the mp3 player into your PC via the USB cable. When it loads as a drive in MY COMPUTER, right click on it and select "Format."
Choose the "FAT" file system to format. This will erase and reformat your Rio Forge memory.

I had the same problem and, after scouring the internet in search of a solution, found nothing. So I started messing around with things. About 5 minutes ago I came up with something that worked for me! I'm still in 'testing' mode but it's playing some ACDC now so I'm happy. ;-)

My first step was to download a firmware 'update'. I'm not sure if it's newer or older than the firmware that I already had in there, but it works so what the heck. It's version 1.16 and is available for download here:

http://www.opendrivers.com/downloaddriverlink.php

Filename is 'RioForgeFlash_116.exe'

To update the firmware, I connected the player via the USB cable. It will power itself up automatically - make sure you have a fresh set of batteries in it. Once it powers up, turn it off but leave it plugged in via USB. Then, power it up again but press and hold the mode button (the small button on the face, to the left of the main navigation buttons. It's the one you use to select different play modes etc.). It will power up and display 'UPGRADER'. From this mode, run the udate file (RioForgeFlash_116.exe); it will update the firmware in the Forge.

Once completed, my Forge interacted normally with the Rio Music Manager and I was able to upload music to it again. I did lose all the music that was in there and on the storage card, but that's better than having a useless MP3 player!

Best of luck!

Sony 5 cd changer disc exchange system With usb port


All this digital stuff can be more confusing for the user than standard tape systems. You may need to put files on the flash drive that are compatible with the CD changer for the files to be imported. Check the internet about this problem with the model unit you have and I bet you are not the only one having this problem. The flash drive may need to be having cda file son it or maybe something else.

Denon CD deck


This unit needs a service visit. It may be a common problem with that model but to me it sound like a power supply issue as when you play a disc more power is used to rotate motors and move the sled. This is indicating to you that it is in a weakened condition and will soon fail more significantly. The problem may be as little as a solder joint or a defective Filter capacitor which is common in some models of equipment.

I don't know how to download cd's and dvd's on dell EL-1210-09


What do you mean download cd's and dvd's? You don't download them, you simply put them in the drive and play them. If you purchased a music cd or a movie dvd that you want to play or watch, then just put it in the drive. The system will recognize it and automatically open Windows Media Player for you to play it or you can open it yourself if autoplay is not active.

Exactly what is it that you are trying to do?

If you are talking about putting a blank cd or dvd into the drive to copy music or a movie to it, that's another story and will take a while to explain. You will basically need to make sure your CD/DvD drive can burn CD's or Dvd's. Then you will need some type of burning software (later versions of Window Media Player will burn).

Click Start/My Computer and look at your devices. if your DvD/CD Drive is listed look for RW which means rewritable (it can burn or copy). If it say DVDrw it can read and write dvd's. If it says CDrw it can read and write cd's. You can also look on the drive door on the computer where you would place the cd or dvd. If it says Rewritable CDrw (it can write cd's) or DvDrw (it can write dvd's). If it says ROM (read only media), that means it can Read Only and not write.

If the drive is rewritable then the software such as Media Player will allow you to go find what you want to put on the cd or dvd. You have two ways of putting things in the software to burn or write. You can copy and paste, or you can drag and drop.

I dont know hot to put the music to the MP3


Your mp3 player should work like any other hard drive. Plug it in, download music, and copy that music into your mp3 player's directory.

I have a CD-player that says: '' Disc not finalised''. That happends when I put a burned CD in the cd-player and when I put a original CD in the cd-player. What to do???


It should still be possible to play the CD in spite of the Disc not finalised message.

However, I am not clear where you have recorded the CD. When you say origninal CD, is this the one you bought from the music shop.

Finalise CD applies to only to recordable CDs (CDR or CDRW). If you do not have a manual you can dowload one from this site. Refer page 24.

When I play a song on my mp3 player, the screen displays "unknown."


Mp3 players are programmed to read original & copied songs when you download music into your Mp3. if you copy an original CD (music) to your Mp3, the songs will be displayed along with all the infos of that song, i.e. artist, track #, year,etc. if you copy a CD which contains copied songs from other originals, it will display "UNKNOWN" because original CD's have their own trademarks that distinguishes them from copied CD's or any other CD for that matter...

I have been bought a Alba 1.8lcd MP3 palyer and have installed the cd it came with and it comes up in my computer but after ive put music on it and then go to play it it just says empty file ???


1. May be there is a particular music folder in which you have to copy the songs.
2. otherwise there is something wrong with the device and get it replaced.

I've lost my manual, & can't remember how to put music on from an external source. i want to use the line in feature, & record from my portable cd player. Any help out there?


Hi there,
Windows Media Player can actually rip songs directly from music cds for you and then you just copy paste them in your MP3s memory. If not, Try to look for NeoAudio version 9.9.9 which is a free music cd ripping software.
