Welcome to the group SLIM JIM!  :)

You can't use mp3s, that may be your problem.

The files must be a specific format (*.wav or *.aiff) and sample rate (44.1kHz).
The GR-55 is also fussy about some types of thumb drive, i hope you are using only the side USB port.

Windows Media player will typically save song files in *.WMA format, you need to probably convert your song files to *.WAV format and then copy and paste to the thumb drive.

You can use iTunes or Audacity to convert MP3s to Wav or AIFF.
http://audacity.sourceforge.net/


How to Convert MP3 or AAC Files to AIFF Format with iTunes:
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1348

The GR-55 Player needs these file types:
File format: WAV, AIFF
Sampling frequency: 44.1 kHz
Bit depth: 8/16/24 bits

The Thumb drive should be FAT-32 format too.

Most DAW's will also let you import mp3's etc, you can then edit them to suit (think intro to Pink Floyd - Time as an example) and export as WAV files. You can have a lot of fun with this feature.  ;D

 This is a great feature on the GR-55. 
 I learned the hardway that my USB thumbdrive needed to be formatted FAT 32 to upgrade my firmware, once done I put some music in wave format, cool.
 Question: Is there a way to rewind when learning from songs?
