Question

How can I synchronize music and video files from PC to the player using Philips Songbird?

Answer

To synchronize music and video files from PC to the player using Philips Songbird, first import the files into Songbird Library (Part A below). Then synchronize the files to the player (Part B below).

If the files are already in the Library of Songbird, you can directly synchronize them to the player using Songbird (ie, proceed to Part B directly).

(A). Importing music or video files from PC into Songbird Library

  1. Start Songbird.
  2. Click "File" in the toolbar and select "Import Media...".
     

  3. Choose the folder that stored your media files in the computer. Click “OK”.
     

  4. A status bar would appear to show the importing status of files to the Songbird Library.
     

  5. When the import is completed, the files are visible under “Music” (if the files are audio files) or “Video” (if the files are video files) in the Library.

(B). Synchronizing music or video files to the player

You can synchronize music or video files from PC to the player automatically or manually.

To synchronize automatically:

  1. Connect the player to PC.
  2. Start Philips Songbird.
  3. Click on “Auto” button.
     

  4. Click on “Continue” button.
     

  5. Select the type of media (ie, music that you want to synchronized).
     

  6. Tick the box for “Auto Sync”, and then click on the “Apply” button.

Synchronization begins. When synchronization is finished, the message of “Completed syncing device” appears.



To synchronize manually:

  2. Start Philips Songbird.
  3. Click on “Manual” button.
  4. Click on the “Apply” button.
