  • 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?

    1. don't you make changes before the show?
    2. is the device detected on the computer?
    Step 1: We recommend that you check if the sync settings are correct. To do this, follow these steps.
    1 open Windows Media Player.
    2. click on the arrow below the Sync tab, point to the device, and then click Advanced Options.
    3. the Properties dialog box for your device is displayed. Tab sync, box start sync when device connects checkbox.

    Step 2: Add a device to sync in Windows Media Player.
    1. start Windows Media Player and connect your portable device into a USB port on your computer. A box of "Windows Media Player ‑‑ Device Setup" appears, showing that he recognized the device and provides an opportunity for you to name your device.
    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.

  • DRM will not play on Windows Media Player

    For years, I've been downloading audiobooks (WMA) of Overdrive and listen to them on my computer.  The DRM has never been a problem.  Suddenly he is now.  Whenever I try to play a protected file, I get the "Windows Media Player has encountered a problem when reading this file."

    I scanned this forum and others.  I carefully and repeatedly followed the instructions given here.  I used ResetDRM (once again, repeatedly).  And the result is always the same.  I can play video files, mp3s and wma files not protected to my heart's content.  No problem.  But DRM won't work.  After that I run ResetDRM, WMP says to update software to play a DRM file.  Let him do it.  And then I get the SAME error.

    I am at a loss.  Can someone help me?  Please?


    Try downloading or restore the rights to use and check if this may help. For more information, see this article:

  • Question for Microsoft Support; I have a huge amount of music files .m4a that I can not play on Windows Media Player?

    Question for Microsoft Support;
    I have a LARGE amount of files music .m4a in a storage drive stand alone that I downloaded from an old Apple computer have more possession of. I can't understand how to enter these data into my old Emachines computer Windows Vista run the Media Player program. I tried to copy a few files m4a manually in the file Media Player Music folder, but they do not play. I'm not really all that computer savvy and know only the basics, I need to use my computer really. Can you give me some step by step instructions how to get these converted files or whatever it is I need to do to get them to play and to integrate properly into my library if it is possible? If this isn't the case, I'll have to go out and buy a new Apple computer for my 60 GB music collection. In the past, that I've never had no real problem shooting files to leave this computer based Vista and convert these files to my old computers Apple Itunes Player. So what's the problem with your system of guys that done anyway this such a pain in the butt? I would really like to understand what exactly is happening with this issue? It's very frustrating for me. I'm a finish Carpenter not a computer programmer. Such things should not be so difficult for someone like me to understand. All I intend to buy a really nice computer, probably in the summer and was considering a Microsoft based computer. But if this kind of problem will be spread with Microsoft products, so maybe I should reconsider. help you can offer to alleviate this problem will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
    Tim M. from Detroit.

    According to research on the Internet, Windows Media Player, atleast this is version 11 (included in Windows Vista and available for Windows XP SP2 +) cannot play Apple loseless type .m4a audio files without having to install any codecs.

    If you want to use Windows Media Player, you can follow the instructions mentioned here to install the necessary codecs and plugins.

    (In the related instructions above, in the first step talks about codecs - your .m4a files are files Apple loseless then follow the party referred to in the first stage about Apple loseless .m4a)

    Personally, I prefer using alternatives to Windows Media Player rather than installing codec packs.

    If you don't want to install codecs, download no matter what media player from "programs that open. M4A files"- Windows category list on this page.

    If you use a spare player - VLC Media Player is my choice.

  • Skins for Windows does not apply on Windows Media Player 11

    I use Windows Media Player 11 for Vista 64 bit and I download a skin and try to apply it to every time it won't work. It only works if I double click the skin file and I won't continue to do it every time. I tried to look for answers to this problem of alreadt, but every single response is to go to and it does not at all help.

    Hi Matt,

    You save the skin before applying it or run it directly?

    If you save the skin before applying, you must double-click it to apply. Other wise, you must change the mouse settings to use the single click.

    For more information, you can consult the following article:

  • 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.
