What’s so special about
this mp3 player?
This player is meant to play mp3 and
Windows MediaTM audio files
transferred in the built-in flash memory.
To do so, you need the use of a
Windows computer with USB port and a
music management software (Yahoo!
Music Engine or Window Media Player
recommended).
The Music Management CD that comes
with your Digital Audio Player contains
all of the necessary software
components you need to make your
Digital Audio Player work properly.
2
These components do the following:
• to install USB driver (for Windows
98SE users only),
• to use a music management software
to organize your music collection,
• to enable you to transfer files from
your computer to your Digital Audio
Player.
Getting Started
Inserting the Included CDROM into CD-ROM Drive
1. Turn on your computer and place the
Music Management CD that comes
with your digital audio player into
your computer.
Note:
Don’t connect the USB device
to the PC or digital audio player before
or during the CD-ROM installation.
If you’re running Windows ME/ 2000/
XP, no additional drivers are required.
If you’re running Windows 98SE, you
must install the USB drivers from the
CD-ROM in order for the digital audio
player to function properly.
2. If the setup screen does not appear,
double click My Computer, double click
your CD-ROM drive icon, and double
click “Install” to run the installer.
