How to transfer music from an external hard disk files the reader thumb

I have my music on my external hard drive and I have a usb input on my car radio (up to 8 GB), but I tried to transfer playlists of hd for the thumb without result. I synchronized in wmp11 but also tried to add files to wmp, but the files on the hard disk are staying to the format of the album and do not appear as they do id they are on my hard disk. is there a post hd USB RIP tab with drag and drop each song in a record high desk then copy of thumb? all the files were on my old computer with windows xp and it was much easier to use it. WTF.


Hello knottywolf,

·         Have you tried to copy the files from the external hard drive to the flash drive?

·         What are the type of files that can be played by your car stereo?

·         After a synchronization of devices, have you tried to copy the tracks instead copy the playlist?

If you are not able to transfer the playlist directly from Media Player, you should try to copy the files to your external hard drive from Windows Explorer and paste them to the USB.

Thank you

  • How to transfer music from Windows Media Player to MP3 Sony Reader

    When I try to transfer music to the library media player to a Sony 4 GB MP3 player with 3.00 GB of free space, it comes back with an error has occurred. What should I do to fix this problem.

    Yes, but his advice to help get rid of the error. From your brief question, nobody can guess that you are a "dummy computer." In addition, you don't say what model of Sony, so you can't see how to use it to help you!

    Unfortunately, there is no easy cure for wave-the-magic-wand. You will need to go under the hood and get your hands dirty or ask someone to do it for you.

    So, without being facetious, here's the long version. If anything is not clear re-don't post, no problem for re - explain:

    (1) read the manual supplied with your Sony device. If it says install software Sony provided on a CD or DVD with the unit and you did not and that yet, then install it...

    (2) use said software Sony for transfers - it works? I ask because I had a Sony camera a long time ago and it necessary/best worked with Sony software. Their video cameras are another example of this. But that is besides the point.

    (3) if the manual says you need or can use WMP to the sync'ing, then that's where we get dirty hands.

    (4) do the following: right-click on my computer (on your desktop) > click Properties in the menu dropdown > left click on hardware > left click on Device Manager.

    (5) glance to see if there are yellow asterisks against one of the entries in the Device Manager. If there is, note to the bottom of the unit in question, double left-click on it and a small window will open. Note the exact error. Re-post with the said error.

    (6) If no error: disconnect your Sony USB device > left click on the sign against the penetration of USB Controllers + > make right click on each entry to tour who turns and selected 'delete '. Not re-start your PC until all the hubs/USB controllers are removed/UN-installed... This will unfortunately be uninstall all your USB devices (keyboard, mouse, printer, etc.), but don't worry, the driver software will always be on your PC. See paragraph after Phew!

    (7) re-boot.

    (8) let XP re - install the USB software necessary for all USB devices you may have connected (keyboard, mouse).

    (9) once things are settled down, grab the manual Sony. Check to see if you need to install the drivers for the device from Sony. If necessary, then pop the installation in your drive disc and install it there. If its so-called plug-and-play, then XP will install generic drivers and you do not have to do a thing. Whatever the option, when XP says your device is ready to use, open WMP (or the Sony software, if its necessary) and transfer away.


    If you have a USB printer (or other device) turns on / them one by one. XP will ask you if he can look for the drivers. Let him do his thing, as the necessary files are already on your PC (see end of point 6). and he must know where to look. If there is just one problem, you need to reinstall the driver, XP will overwrite all of the files that is already.

    Listen, if you're not happy to do the above, ask someone to help you or do for you.

    Re-post if the problem persists, but please give references of full model of your Sony Reader so I can take a look at the online manual.



  • I just downloaded winows meïdia player 11 it won't import my music from my external hard drive

    Winows meïdia player 11 won't import my music from my external hard drive whenever I try to add files, it just seems threw? How can I get my music in my library?

    The instructions are for WMP 11 on XP. Here are the correct steps to WMP 11 Vista: (note the reset of the library will make you lose all the counts to play and possibly ratings too)

    -Restart the PC.
    -Click Start, type services.msc in the search field and press ENTER. In Services, locate the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service . If its status is started , double-click the service, and then click stop .
    -Click Start, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft in the search field and press ENTER. This folder opens in Windows Explorer.
    -In this folder, rename the folder Media Player as Old Media Player . If you do not see the folder, then it is probably hidden. Set Explorer to view the hidden files and folders and show protected system files.
    -Launch WMP, your library will have been reset and will be rebuilt. Check if the problem persists.

    How to transfer my music from my iPhone to my macbook pro 6

    Where is the music? If it's on the iTunes store and then with the same AppleID on Mac, you can download it again. There is no easy way to transfer music from iPhone to Mac, and you're not supposed to do anyway.

    If the music on the iPhone has been transferred from another computer, you cannot connect your iPhone to another music library without erasing music on the phone.  Give us more details.
