Using Windows Media Player 10
Synchronizing files and playing media on your mobile device has never been easier.
Getting content from your desktop onto your mobile device
To get media onto your device, you can take advantage of the built-in synchronization capability of Windows Media Player 10. Built-in synchronization allows you to sync your PC’s media files with your mobile device on demand, and even sync content without selecting a button via the intelligent Auto Sync functionality in Windows Media Player. Windows Media Player can scan your PC for media and add it to your media library, after which the content will be readily available to sync to your Windows Mobile-based device.
To take full advantage of Windows Media Player 10 Mobile, you will first need to install the PC version onto your computer. You can do so by visiting Microsoft’s Web site at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/download/download.aspx.
Once you have installed it, start Windows Media Player 10 on your PC. Select the Sync tab and then connect your mobile device to your PC. If you have a multimedia card inserted in your device, you will be prompted with a Device Setup menu and asked to choose either automatic or manual synchronization. Windows Media Player 10 sets the default synch method to automatic if it sees that your storage card or hard drive is 512 MB or larger. If your storage capacity is smaller then 512 MB, the default is set to manual.
If you have 512 MB or more of storage on your device or storage card, try the Auto Sync feature. Windows Media Player 10 will scan the music on your PC and sync songs based on the following rules until your storage card is full:
Music rated at 5 stars
Music added in the past month
Music rated 4 stars or 5 stars
Music played in the past month
Music played the most
You also have the ability to customize the priorities and playlists for Auto Sync. Customization can be done by selecting Sync Settings and choosing the items you would like to include. Each time your mobile device is synced to your PC while Windows Media Player 10 is active, Windows Media Player will make updates to your device’s Media Library automatically, based on your preferences.
NOTE: If your device has less than 32 MB of usable memory, whether system memory or storage card memory, you will not be given the option to Auto Sync.
Notice that your device name is listed on the right side of Windows Media Player. Below the device name are the names of folders that reside on your device. By using the four icons above your device name, you can add folders, delete files, format multimedia cards in your device or view the properties of selected files. To switch from your device memory to your multimedia card, select the icon depicting your device name, and then select Storage Card. The contents of your card are now listed.
Select the pull-down arrow just below the Start Sync icon. The selections in this pull-down menu represent the many ways you can sort and sync your media: by track, album, artist, genre, recently played songs, top-ranked songs and more. When you’ve selected the tracks you want to sync, select the Start Sync button to begin syncing the content to your Windows Mobile-based device.
The status section denotes if the song is ready to sync or is currently syncing. The message “Songs may not fit…” will appear if you do not have adequate storage space on your card.
Starting Windows Media on your mobile device
To start Windows Media Player 10 on your Pocket PC, select Start>Programs > Windows Media. You will see your Library screen. From here you can navigate to the five areas of content: My Music, My Videos, My TV, My Playlists and Now Playing. From your Library you can launch music, videos and TV shows that you’ve previously stored on your device’s storage card.
NOTE: If you do not see your Library, select Menu > Library.
Updating your device after syncing content
To update your mobile device Media Library after syncing content, follow these steps:
Select Start > Programs > Windows Media > My Music. This will bring up two selections, My Device and Storage Card. Select the Storage Card option to tell the device to look for media on your multimedia card for Media Library content. If you select My Device, it will look for media saved to your device’s main memory.
Now select Menu>Update Library, and then Search. Windows Media Player will scan either your card or device for new media to add to the Media Library. Use the Update Library function each time you sync over new content.
Now you are ready to play media on your mobile device. From the Library screen, select My Music. Notice that you can now sort by All Music, Artist, Album or Genre. Select the track you would like to hear, then select Play.
Playing video content
Playing your video content is just like playing your music. From the main Library page, select My Videos and choose either All Video or Genre to sort through your collection.
In full-screen Landscape mode you use more screen real estate to watch video. To use this feature, start your video, select Menu, and then select Full Screen. Depending on video size, compression and format, certain videos can be played utilizing the entire screen. Those that aren’t rendered to fit the screen will have a black border.
Synchronizing TV Content
If you have a Windows XP Media Center Edition-based PC and have previously recorded TV shows to your hard drive, you can easily synchronize TV content to your device using Windows Media 10. You can choose to synchronize the TV shows manually or automatically each time your Windows Mobile-based device is connected. Once synchronized as described above, your shows should appear in the My TV selection in Windows Media Player on your device. Content will automatically be resized to fit your device and take up less memory.
Queuing up your media
While in your mobile device’s media library, you can queue up other songs or videos to form a playlist. At any point, highlight a song, artist, album, genre, playlist or even the All Music selection. Select the Menu button and select Queue Up. When you return to the Now Playing list, you will see that all the content under the selected item has been added to the end of the queue. You now can reorganize the order of the Now Playing list however you’d like, by selecting Menu.
Things to keep in mind when playing media
The directional pad is your main control. You can customize it based on your personal preferences.
Pressing the pad straight in (or the standard action key) will play or pause media.
Pressing once to the right or left will advance to the next song or start the song over.
Holding down the directional pad to the right or left will move to the next or previous media file.
Pressing up or down on the directional pad controls the volume.
Use the “#” key to mute or turn on the volume.
If you’ve synced an album for which you had album art from your PC to your mobile device through Windows Media Player 10, the artwork will appear when music from the album is played.
If you receive a call while listening to or watching media on your mobile device, the device will automatically pause and mute the media so you can take the call.
Selecting Menu brings up a variety of selections, including Shuffle/Repeat, which lets you listen to your music in a random-play mode. Note that the Options section is accessed from here.
To play games on your mobile device, select Start > Programs > Games. Both Bubble Breaker and Solitaire come with your device by default, but other games you install will also appear in this game folder.
