I'm gonna replace my HD5 with a new IAudio X5L. To do that, I'll need to transfer all my mp3 files from the player back to the PC. I deleted all the mp3 files already and an error message apppears saying that I can't transfer my songs. Is this because I haven't authorized my device, yet? (Trouble is I can't since there's no authorize button where there should be one.) When I first connected it to my lappie however, (before the SonicStage upgrade) I did try to authorize it but the 'authorization screen' does not change. I waited over an hour and the device is STILL trying to register. This happened twice already to both HD5's I've owned so I never got around to actually authorizing the devices. Or does this have nothing to do with it? Is it because the file locations of the original music files in my PC are PERMANENTLY 'altered'? How do I get around this??
Seriously. I'm ready to print out a return label from Amazon already but I can't yet because 200 songs are in my stinkin HD5! I don't want to go through the painstaking process of ripping all the CDs again.
AND I WANT THE X5L SO SO SO SO BADLY.
