  • Hi,

    Please start your MP3 player, connect to the computer, then start WMP, switch to sync, is the green bar moving and show the progress of sync? Please tell us the symptom.

    At this point, please follow the steps to set up your device:

    If the Player has automatically selected to sync your device, click Finish. When you do this, the Player will sync your entire Player Library to your device. After that, your device will automatically sync every time you connect it to your computer while Windows Media Player is running.

    If the Player has selected to sync your device manually, click Finish. Then, on the Sync tab, select the files and playlists you want to sync manually.

    If it does not work, please refer to Open the Windows Media Player Settings troubleshooter and check the result.
