So thankful I found you guys. I appreciate any help you can give me. First let me say that except for shopping and googleing on the computer I have no idea what makes it work or how to program or any of that. I recently purchased a Phillips 512MB, I could not afford a real IPOD but I didn't need anything fancy just something I could store some music in to help with my walking excercise.

I was able to burn and sinc and get some music into the device but I could not see how to organize it into folders and I would have started over again but couldn't see how to erase the music I transfered in the first place. The little instruction booklet did not give the best instructions and there was no way of calling into Phillips to get help. I don't know if it's my media player or the audio player that is the problem. Again let me say that I might as well be in kindergarten as far as understanding how to operate these things so if anyone finds it in their heart to help me please use simple words.

Thanks again. Radiana

Did you scroll through the iPod's Menu commands? You should be able to "Add New Folder", name it and transfer your music into each folder you made to sort it all out. Don't use iPods so this may be only a iTunes feature.

Ron he doesn't have an iPod, he/she has a Phillips 512MB MP3 player. radiana try creating a "music" folder when browsing the mp3 player, and dragging and dropping MP3s into there. If this doesn't work get me any serial codes, or the full name for the mp3 player so I can look into it deeper

to clarify sam's suggestion...open up "my computer" you should see your C:\ drive floppy drive cd rom drive...etc...whatever drives you have...is the philips player listed here as well? if so you should be able to double click it and open it just like any other drive/folder.

as a note...MOST if not all MP3 players track the songs by ID3 tags not by file name/folders....so folders aren't needed to keep "CDs" in tact (like...keeping the tracks together when accessed by the player) this usually removes the need for folders
