Mobile device does not synchronize with Windows Media player

My mobile device (Pharos Traveler 137) running windows media 10 mobile player is not detected by Windows Media Player 11 running in Vista.  Connected and synchronized correctly for months, it is not so now, even if the mobile device is detected by the computer and synchronizes correctly for other purposes such as outlook, files, etc..   How to get Windows Media Player to detect once more unit (specifically the card 8 GB storage) in the window of synchronization?

2. read how the player will sync your device, which is directly under where you type the name of the device. If storage of the device is more than 4 gigabytes, for example, and your library on Windows Media Player fits on this device, the player chooses automatic.
3. selection of automatic synchronization means that your device will reflect all your Windows Media Player library and it will do so that whenever it is connected. Click on "Finish".
4. to synchronize only some of your library when the player chose automatic, you can choose what will sync when you open Windows Media Player. Click on the portable device in the right pane and drag the items you want to synchronize with this device.
5. selection of a manual synchronization indicates that the player has detected that the portable device has no place for your entire library. Click on "Finish". Open Windows Media Player, select the portable device in the right pane and drag the items you want to synchronize with this device.

  • How to convert wma and wav, mp4 files and what not not mp3 with Windows media player?

    * Original title: music questions

    Music has become a huge problem for me.   My car CD player only supports mp3 format.  I wish I could burn my CD from which I get used various locations, so that I can play in my car. Or convert files I have, which are not in mp3 format.  I played the same CD in my car for years.  It's a little sad.  And convert mp3 no mp3 files, so I can play them in my car, because I don't have a player other than Windows media player and speakers belong good markets.   How to convert files to wma and wav and mp4 and what not in mp3?

    Music is expensive nowadays and the multiple formats and thus loss of music bought and in the cloud, or itunes 'cannot locate the source' will not play, and when devices in the event of a failure or who are upgraded drives me crazy.  I have more music in my life and I wish that we would go back to portable music as CD.

    I usually use Windows Media player to RIP CD, that I find at thrift stores.   I have my brother gave me, on the PC that is in all sorts of types of music files.  I found a job online converter and it is, according to me, so thank you guys for suggesting that.  Have tried 3 different ones and finally found one that works in the last one.  I think my brain might need a bit of adjustment, of our days, (won't tell you music I have on CD, would seriously date), no kidding, but probably my PC could also use the setting.   I also have itunes for Windows, but have hardly used it.

  • MP4 does not work in Windows Media Player

    I'm working on a project that has videos on built-in slides.

    When I save the project as a swf or exe file, it works fine. I need as an mp4. When I try to record it in a mp4, it works on a mac computer, but not on a Windows computer. I tried on Windows 7 and Windows 8. On Windows 7, I get a message saying "Windows Media Player has stopped working". On Windows 8, the message says "element not found."

    Some Captivate mp4s works; others do not. I don't understand what the difference is. Videos seem to better operate the videos embedded in the slides.

    I use 6 Captivate. I create projects on Windows 7.

    Thank you

    I got it work. All I had to do was resize the project to a smaller size.

  • Webcam on Satellite A200 does not work with Windows Media Encoder

    Material: TOSHIBA Satellite A200 (1GH) with built-in Chicony webcam.

    When I use the software Chicony webcam - it works allright (video recorded normally).
    BUT: when I have Chicony software from Windows Media Encoder (preinstalled with Vista) - when I try to select the webcam as input device - and closing the error reported is "the device is not ready".

    This error also repeated if I select for driver webcam Microsoft instead of native driver Chicony webcam.


    Download the latest driver Chicony and the software for the Toshiba page and install it.
    Don t forget to remove the old version.

    In addition, if you get the error message like webcam is used by another application or "device is not ready you must start the msconfig and should turn off and turn on webcam chicony and process service.»
