Windows Media Player won't recognise my MP3 Player

Today I bought a small MP3 player and tried to put music

into it, just to find out the "How To".

 

Following instructions, I plugged the device into a USB

socket, the computer recognised it and I could explore

it with no trouble.

 

Windows Media Player version 12.0.10011.16384 was

a different matter though, all it did was ask for a device

to be plugged in.

 

I spent some time speaking to the Sony help desk and

did everything that they asked me to do, with no luck.

 

Can anybody shed any light on this please?

 

I am running Windows 10 on a HP 110-352na AMD A

series quad core, 2 GHz CPU, 8GB Ram.

 

Thank you.

 

Mike.

I don't understand why you opened up your WMP. Simply plug in your MP3 player and drop and drag files into it as you would any other USB drive.

Did you get this figured out? If you have not then a bunch of us can give you some helpful tips. First thing is do not open the WMP if you are trying to add files to an external MP3 player. Did the Sony rep tell you that?

My 2 cents, VLC Media Player from VideoLAN may be a better choice. The software is free, General Public License.

No, I'm not affiliated with VideoLAN, I just like their software.

Will5200, I don't see what VLC Media Player has to do with solving the OP's problem.  For that matter, I don't see what Windows Media Player has to do with the issue.  The issue is this: The OP bought an MP3 player and wants to put music on it.  As Rocky Bennet said, just drag and drop the MP3 files to the MP3 player.  You really couldn't want a simpler solution that.
