mp3 player

Another possibility is that your MP3 files don't have ID3 tags within 
them.  There are a number of tools that can add ID3 tags to MP3 files. 
I had an older Sansa that required ID3 tages in files.  A couple of 
other suggestions:

1) Create a MUSIC directory, if nothing similar exists.

2) Create a directory structure for the artist and then the album, and 
locate the MP3 files within.

3) Make sure the filenames of the MP3 files begins with two digits for 
the track number.  For instance:
MUSIC/Dire Straits/Brothers In Arms/06 Ride Across The River.mp3
