RE: mp3 player write protected

Hi people. Have a look at your mp3 player to see if you have the hold button on. When the hold is selected you will not be able to format or delete. Hope this helps

RE: mp3 player write protected

Take the wire lead out of the pc for about 30 mins and then try again and it should work. It was saying write protected for me aswell but the next day my brother tried it and it worked. Hope this works for you guys.

RE: protected cds to mp3 player

I have just found out how to put protected cds on to my mp3 player. I don't know if anyone else is having trouble with this. I down loaded cloneCD it has a 21 day trial and i am so pleased. I had to copy it to a blank cd then rip it back off but it worked. yeah yeah.

The original cd let me rip it to my pc but not to sync with my mp3. But i done it!
Jackie on May 16, 2006
RE: mp3 player write protected

TRY CLONECD IT WORKS IF YOU COPY TO A BLANK CD THEN RIP IT BACK OFF. THE COPIED DISK IS NOT PROTECTED. CLONECD HAS A 21 DAY FREE TRIAL.
