First you going to need to answer a bunch of questions. You need to give the make model and year of the car you're trying to play these on. Second, what are you using to play the files (your cell phone, an iPod type device, or you loaded the files into the hard drive of the radio itself (mostly found on Dodge Chrysler vehicles)

My RCA MP3 player (Th 1101) just stopped working all of a sudden. We changed the battery, made sure "HOLD" wasn't on, but it still won't turn on. Is this thing just a cheap piece of **** and won't work anymore, or is there a solution to my problem?

SOURCE: Alpine CDE-102 w/usb port: will not

Hello desoren,

The receiver may not be set to recognize MP3 files.

Press and hold "sound setup" until the unit enters setup mode. Rotate the volume knob to "play mode" and press "enter". Check that the setting is CD/MP3 (not CD/MA), or rotate the volume knob to change the setting to CD/MP3 and press enter again. Press and hold "sound setup" again until the unit exits sound setup.

If the files are still not recognized, I'd try using a different USB drive, a different computer to write the MP3's, and/or a different application to download or rip the original music content.

Hope this helps.

My mp3 says file format error when I try to listen to the music.


It's possible that the file type of the music file(s) you are trying to listen to are not a supported format of your mp3 player. Your player only supports MP3 and WMA audio formats. You should check the music files you are tying to play to confirm they are of a compatible format.

How to Convert Protected AAC to MP3 / WMA


Apple is now promoting its AAC music pricing at 3 leyers across the board by encouraging consumer to upgrade to iTunes Plus for DRM-free, although Apple listed various advantage of music in AAC over MP3, people keep looking for "AAC to MP3 converter" to convert AAC to MP3/WMA, why?

Why Convert Protected AAC to MP3 / WMA?

(1). iTunes AAC music has two types --- DRM protected AAC (with .m4p file name); Non-DRM AAC (with .m4a file name).
(2). For Non-DRM AAC (M4A) music, most of the popular digital devices can't play them, for example, if you have iriver and want enjoy iTunes M4A music on it, sorry, no luck!
(3). For DRM protected AAC (M4P) songs, only Apple's ipod, iPhone are authorized to play them, of course, with limited number of iPod players and computers to which to transfer.
(4). MP3 and WMA are the most popular audio formats for most of the digital players including PSP, PS3, Zune, Xbox 360, creative Zen, Archos, Iriver, Blackberry, Samsung, Sonywalkman, HTC, Sansa, Cowon etc.

Converting protected AAC to MP3/WMA needs a all-round application that can remove DRM and convert AAC to MP3 both.

Why Choose DRM Music Converter to convert Protected AAC to MP3 / WMA?

DRM Music Converter can:
(1). Remove DRM from online stores like iTunes, Zune Marketplace, Napster, Rhapsody etc.
(2). Support input audio formats: protected AAC (M4P), protected WMA, M4A, MP3, AC3, OGG, APE, WAV, MKA.
video formats: M4V (protected MP4), protected WMV, protected ASF.
(3). Support output audio formats: WMA, M4A, MP3, AC3, OGG, APE, WAV, MKA.

Then you can:
(1). Convert AAC to MP3, WMA, M4A, AC3, OGG, APE, WAV, MKA;
Convert AAC (M4A) music to MP3, WMA, AC3, OGG, APE, WAV, MKA;
Convert protected WMA to MP3, M4A, WMA, AC3, OGG, APE, WAV, MKA;
Convert protected M4V / WMV / ASF video to MP3, M4A, WMA, AC3, OGG, APE, WAV, MKA.
(2). Transfer iTunes music on non-Apple AAC-compatible digital players; Play protected WMA at will.
(3). Play and share music in whatever format on whatever player you l

Remove DRM from WMV WMA


What is DRM? Why do we remove DRM from WMA WMV? Have you download music and video from Windows Media Player, iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, bearshare, Spiral Frog, BBC iPlayer downloads? These popular music and movie download programs among the music fans always come with a disgusting word - 'DRM'.
DRM (Digital Rights Management) - The anti consumer copy protection that prevents you from using music or movies in a way that suits you. For example, if a WMA or WMV you downloaded from WMP(windows media player) that has DRM, you can only play it back on a compatible device, so if every piece of music had DRM on it you would need to buy the same track on CD to listen in your CD player or car, as an iTunes download to play on your iPod, as a ms store download to play on your Zune etc, but since you paid for it once you shouldn't be forced to pay for it again and again and again, remove DRM license from WMA WMV and other protected files then you can play the music video on phone, iPod, Zune, PSP, CD player, pc, burn DRM protected WMV files to DVD and copy drm protected wmv itunes m4v movie files to anything else that you can listen to music video on.
How to remove DRM from WMA WMV? I got a few methods listed below:
1. Burn and rip
Actually, there is a common free method to remove DRM from WMA with 2 steps, Step 1 Burn the protected WMA to a CD
Step 2 Rip them off to your computer, then the DRM should be removed from the WMA files.
But it's not very convenient and may wear out your CR-ROM. And windows media player can only burn and rip the WMA (or you will need DVD copy and DVD ripper for other formats).
2. Re-record
One of the most common and simple technology is recording the DRM protected WMA then use an ordinary converter to convert the recorded and unprotected files. Because this technology is easy to realized and easy to support more DRM formats besides protected WMA it is welcomed by most of the DRM converters like the SoundTaxi, NoteBurner , etc.
But there are some disadvantages for those programs.
1. The conversion speed won't get much improvement due to the long recording process.
2. Much audio and video quality could be lost during the recording process.
3. Hook
Hook is another new and more complicated technology which can be used to remove DRM license from protected WMA WMV files. Comparing with recording process, these sorts of drm removal have much higher conversion speed, but it's hard to make it support some DRM formats with new and lofty encrpytion tachniques.
And as far as I know, Aimersoft was one of its supporters. After giving a test for some free trials I found it is convenient to crack DRM from protected WMA WMV files with Aimersoft Media Converter, and it also supports other formats conversion like AAC, AC3, WAV, M4A, M4b, MP3, etc.

SwiMP3 (128 MB) MP3 Player: I have the original first version of the Swimp3 pl...


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.

Music downloaded as WMA from PC to MP3tech MP3S4 wont play


Your player should support both MP3 and WMA files. What happens when you try to play an MP3 instead? Have you tried other bit-rates? Those you are trying may be too high or low.

When RCA first came out with the Lyra series the only way to get music onto the device was by using musicmatch jukebox that would convert your mp3 file to mpy before downloading it to the device. But now RCA has come out with a new firm ware update for these mp3 players that improved the players playback quality plus enabled it to use .WMA files. so first go to RCA support http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/select.aspx?u=downloads and find your player and download the firmware upgrade and install to your player its very easy and instructions are at the same site. You can now convert your music to .wma or use the free Real player that will convert mp3 to wma at the kbps that you request before loading it on. If your music is all ready in wma format you can use windows media player to send the files to your player. One last thing the .wma files that you put on your Lyra player need to be at least 128kbps or higher enhanced playback quality of wma files (160 kbps to 256 kbps).

Cannot Enable WMA Playback


what ever you do, DO NOT RESET SETTINGS cause then you just have to reset them and it wont do you any good. I had the same problem. The most lodgicall way to solve this is just to spend like 3 bucks at mcdonalds and get the wifi so you can play online multiplayer, go on the internet, and fix the wma feature. Or you could just free load off of a friends wifi or wirless setup. But you may have to enter a security code.

Won't paly WMA files that I bought online!


I remember reading somewhere that if you upgrade your firmware of your H340 from US to international to get video you lose the ability to play DRM music. I from this I would that the international version can't play the copy protected files. I am not sure of the legalities in your location, but you may be able to work around the copy protection. Maybe a google search would give you some hints.
