    Your friend needs to try the player on another Computer system. If it is detected, she will need to have her computer serviced. You might tell her to try an external powered USB adapter, on her system first

    I recently purchased the Sylvania MP3 3GB player (SMPK2021) and plugged into my PC for downloading. Before it ends, i pulled out the device. Now the PC no longer recognized the device. What did I do wrong? Tried pushing the buttons to reset but not successful. Any way to reformat or reinstall the program into the device? Any idea welcome. thanks

    Sylvania MP3 GB player (SMPK2021) ver 3.120
    I recently bought one of these, And I always keep it in safe places because my last one (of a differant brand, but it had the same problem, but that's only because the button somehow broke from the inside.). I don't know how, but just two or three days later, the sound stopped working. That is to say, it works, but it won't turn up or down, it's stuck on very low. The inside looks fine, I don't know what happened to it. I'd take it back, as the garentee(sp?) is still affective, but I lost the receipt. (sp? sorry)

    Hi, everyone. I have a Sylvania 2 GB mp3 player. So far, I've only filled up about 500 mb, but when I try to put more files on, I get a message saying that it's full. So far, I've just been dragging and dropping files. I appreciate any help.

    What program are you using to manage this MP3 player? iTunes or something else?

    I'm not using any program. I drag and drop between windows.

    Can you format the MP3 player in FAT32 mode?

    In My Computer, right-click on the MP3 player and choose format. you will see the options there

    In that case, I can't. I'm not given any options when I format. I did try formatting it anyway (I don't know why I didn't think of that before), but that didn't help.

    Btw, sorry it's taking me so long to reply. I really appreciate your help.

    not enough memory

    My mother 'n' law purchased a sylvania mp3 player 3 months ago with 945mb of memory. She currently has used up ~300mb with 70 songs, but is unable to add anymore. The error message stating that there is not enough room continues to pop up. How can we fix this?

    It depends on the model of your MP3 player can accept video, and you can find out what video formats are acceptable to the player in the owners manual
