Windows Media Player 11 and the C550

9 posts in this topic

Back when I first got my C550 I excitedly installed windows media player 10, only to find that not only could I not use it to sync with my phone, but that i could no longer drag 'n' drop things onto the storage card .... I took me days to roll back the damage.

Now I was wondering what would happen if I installed WMP11. Anybody know, would I have the same problems?

You should have no such problems with WMP11 and the 550. It's a fairly robust relationship, the phone itself, Storage and Storage Card all show on the 'Sync' tab and I've never yet had any sync problems (it even managed to convert an mpg movie to wmv without any hassle!)

Download it - it'll be worth it :rolleyes:

No, still exactly the same ... I upgraded to WMP11 and now i can't even drag and drop files in explorer onto the storage card!

Anyone got any idea how to fix this?

I can sync WMP11 with my C550 just fine (I was alright with WMP10, too). I've used it on both Windows XP (Fully patched) and Vista.

Have you tried installing the latest ActiveSync? Also, have you considered using the Winamp ActiveSync plugin?

You say you can't drag & drop files anymore, which error is it you're getting?

Okay, so it turns out that I can drag and drop - as long as WMP11 hasn't been loaded yet in the session! If it has, as soon as I try to copy anything to the SD card, the whole contence of the SD card just dissappears. This doesn't happen if WMP11 hasn't been loaded. Then it works just fine!

I'm using ActiveSync 4.5 on XP SP2 (fully patched). I havn't considered the Winamp ActiveSync plugin - wasn't aware to this. But will this allow me to transfer DRM protected music? At the moment, the whole drag and drop stratagy seems to work for musics purchased from some places (like MSN music store), but not others (like HMV digital) even though they both claim to use the WMP DRM!
