All depends on the file format of the players and if the music is copy protected.
Have a search through this forum and if your still stuck ask again

I think I read in the handbook on my 500 that ipods needed to be configured as an external hard drive or something like that. Didn't take too much notice as I don't have an ipod, (just use the USB sticks myself) so not 100% sure of the exact wording. I can check it tonight when I get home if this hasn't helped at all.

Re: Usb Media Player Not Working!!

hi, my media player was finding all of my tunes, but recently has started coming up as no media found when searching folders, genre, artists, etc, yet when you put in play anything, it does!!

wiped memory card, formatted it, and put tunes back on, to no avail!! i think its something to do with the media database!!

so putting it to dealership today to put blue and me back to factory settings to see if that works!!

Re: Usb Media Player Not Working!!

Open itunes and select edit then click on preferences. Now click the advanced tab then the importing sub-tab then select "import using" and change the setting to MP3 Encoder. OK this to confirm.


Now u need to select your whole library and click on advanced, then select "convert selection to MP3"

Job done! this could take some time depending on the size of your library.

Finally delete the original music file of each track cos it will be duplicated to MP3 ( you will have 2 copies of each track,1 will be MP3 and the unwanted original prob AAC). Hope this helps. shout if u need help!
