My Audio Device Only Plays the First 10 Seconds of a Song

A TechLore "Ask the Experts" Question...


My wife has a Sylvania MP3 player. When I download songs it only plays
about ten seconds of each song. I'm using Windows Media Player 10. Please Help!

Many audio products have playback feature known as "intro/scan" mode, or something similar. No doubt you're familiar with other playback modes like repeat and shuffle. "Intro" mode automatically plays the first 5 to 10 seconds of each file to help you locate a particular song on a CD or MP3 player, just like how you would look for a particular song manually.

You should be able to find an option to turn this off in the MP3 player's menu.
