Lumia 1020 :: Won't Sync Music Using Windows Media Player
Sep 13, 2013
After being a huge advocate for Windows Phone I'm just about done with it after moving from WP7.5 and Zune to WP8.I can't sync anything using Windows Media Player. I put stuff in the sync list and it looks like it syncs then I check the sync status and everything has "error" in the status and nothing has copied. Doesn't matter if it's songs I own or subscription - nothing syncs through media player. I think I did get it to sync to my wife's 620.
According to MSFT this will not let me sync Zune subscription which is another issue I have - and the biggest issue is that I can't sync playlists period. They show up with 0 songs when I sync using the Windows Phone App. But I was hoping using Media Player might solve that but it's not working.I'm using WIndows 7 on my PC. I'm a long time Zune user/promoter. Right now I can't get music on my phone in any reasonable fashion.
OK, so we all know Ovi player is, uummm, a bit flaky?I've given up trying to use it and am now using Windows Media Player to transfer music to my X6. This works absolutely fine other than getting the album art onto the phone.
I need the driver for 'n73 music edition' to sync with 'windows media player 12' (pc operating system windows 7). I have installed the latest version of 'nokia pc suite' and 'nokia ovi suite' in my computer.
I have had my Droid X for about 6 months and until now have been able to sync music to it with no problem. I have a subscription to the Zune Pass so the files that I sync are DRM protected. Windows Media Player is the only software I know of that can successfully sync these files to my phone. That is until recently. While I am still able to syne non-DRM Mp3's, suddenly now when I try to sync any Zune Pass files (which are WMA files), I get an error telling me that the "device's internal clock is not correct". how I can solve the problem but none of them have worked. One suggestion had me go into WMP's Privacy tab in its Tools menu and select the option to "Set clock on devices automatically", but the option was already selected.
How can I check if my device's internal clock is off? What could I have done to mess it up in the first place?
The Sprint manual says you can download music via Windows Media Player or MML , but once you load your music via Media Player, if you use then Motorola you will end up with two seperate files that will use your memory. From the Media player you will have a file called Music,and from Motorola you will have a file MML Mobile.
When I try to sync media from the device I get a the following warning " In order to perform the sync process in MotoCast USB you must first stop the sync process in Windows Media Player." I'm using Win7 Ultimate and have no devices set to sync to WMP 12, when I try to stop the processes in taskmgr they just immediately turn right back on.
I have just bought a new Golf R (amazing car btw) but neither of the USB sockets in the armrest or the dash cubby hole charge my phone. Is this because it is a USB C type cable? It is not a deal killer as I usually charge my phone at either end of my journey but it is annoying!
Another annoying issue is that the Media player does not display the music album art but that is probably a Windows 10 issue and might get updated as the OS is updated.
i'm try to play direct from a website where are 3 players on winamp realplayer and windows media player but none of those are suported what do i need so i can play directly from the website the players are on [URL]
My music player has disappeared from my Media Player folder. I did nothing to delete it. It was working fine I closed it and when I went back to media player it was gone. find it or download a new one. I have a Torch with the latest software upgrades.
I looked around, and have not found an answer to my problem. I want to stream online radio from a website. It says that it is compatible with any mobile device with a windows media player capable player. Media sync does not appear to be the solution.
Here is the website in question: Chiefs Radio Network Listen Live
The song title and artist does not display when streaming music from Nokia Music on my Windows Phone through my car stereos' bluetooth connection. It also does not allow me to skip songs using my car stereo.
The Zune music player on my Windows Phone has this functionality.
i have some songs on my storage card, and when i play it using media player, it takes like about 30 seconds if i want to skip to another song serious i made a hard reset and still doing it.... i tried with different micro sd card, but nothin, still the same, the hd2 is fast for any other app, but i just have that issue... any knows a solution? i already updated music library also !!
I would like to put some music on my phone but im having some trouble, i have made a play list from windows media player and have synced that tracks to the phone but for some reason it has an error. "Windows media player cannot convert the file to the format required by the device". What format the mobile is in, or what to do next?
I have a 4 gb memory card and saved all my music into it. but i cant add those to media player or playlist. to hear a song i need to go to gallery nd play one by one. wat should i do? In media player> options> library details is shown none... but there is no option to add a library.
Ovi Player on Windows does not start playing the samples. When I click on the "30 s sample" play button, the button turns into a revolving "doing something" indicator but the sample never starts to play. I have used this exact same computer before and sometimes it has started to play and sometimes is has not. I have never had problems playing the songs I have already purchased, they start playing immediately.
This is a Windows 7 Home Premium laptop with the latest Ovi Player on WLAN. I have tried rebooting the computer and the network router. I have also tried clearing the network browser cache and cookies. I have tried to play samples without Ovi Player just by connecting to [url]... using Firefox and IE, but playing the samples just does not start. I have also tried another computer, a desktop computer with Windows Vista with the latest Ovi Player with a wired connection to the same router, but playing the samples does not work there, either. The samples have worked sometimes on that computer, too. And also that computer plays the existing songs like a charm.
After downloading the pdf files from internet/mail it shows in the file explorer, but when try to open it, the app pickup list only showing Project Spartan. Nothing else, no Adobe Reader nor PDF reader. I installed another PDF file reader app call Xodo, still no luck.
I would like to go back to windows 8.0 because I have realised too many anomalies with 8.1 software, first I cannot customise the kid's corner anymore, my camera is also not good enough and I cannot use mobile data internet.
I would also like to find out if I can re-upgrade to windows 8.1. I am suspecting that it may not have installed correctly because there was power interruption during the upgrade process. My phone is Lumia 1020.
I have a Lumia 1020 and like two months ago it just stopped being recognized by my pc for syncing it. I tried connecting it to a mac and another pc and it is not recognized. I reset my phone but that didn't work. I'm using the original cable but it does not work.
Probably 60% of the time when I hit the volume down button the option to change the Ringer/Notifications and the Media/Apps volume comes up. I can then, of course, mute the volume on each of those or obviously adjust the volume. However, the other 40% of the time, only the volume for Media/Apps comes up, with no option for the Ringer.
I think this tends to happen when I'm in my car which is communicating with my phone via Bluetooth....could that have a connection to this issue? Also, is there an easier way to mute the phone quickly? Cortana does not seem to perform the mute feature.
