    Thumb Down How did this happen?

    Advertisements
    Somewhere in the last few years I have become a total old fogie who can't figure anything electronic out! I got a MP3 player and I've spent like 3 hours trying to figure out how to use it, and load songs on it, including calling tech support.....AND I STILL CANT FIGURE IT OUT! Would it be lame of me to return it and get a portable radio for idiots like me who can only figure out how to pick AM or FM?!!

    I just plug mine in and it prompts me.

    If it doesn't, just go to "computer" and find your MP3 in that folder. Then open the folder with your music and drag the songs you want over there.

    I tried....the mp3 player sayd "loading" and its said that for the last 24 hours.....I tried restarting it....I need "Geek Squad"!! Is it bad that I thought about how fun it would be to jump up and down on it a million times until its in tiny pieces?

    Maybe it's just a pissy mp3 player...take it back to the store and try a diff one? It could just be the one that you bought, what the luck

    I feel the same way sometimes. DH got a smart phone (first one between the 2 of us) and it took me a whole day to figure it out while playing with it and asking DH questions. There are still things on there I don't know how to do.
