Missing Media Files in Little Math

While playing your Little Math lessons, you may encounter an error pop-up message entitled Media files missing.


The "media files missing" error comes up because Little Math cannot find the images, pronunciation files, or videos which it needs to play back the lesson you were trying to play.


There are a few common causes of this error:


1. You were unable to download your content file completely

If you downloaded your Little Math content file from your BrillKids Account, it might be that your Internet connection was interrupted while you were downloading the file or there was a problem with your Little Math.



1) Make sure you have a stable Internet connection and then re-download the content file. It is recommended that you stop downloading other files while downloading your Little Math content file.

2) Connect to the Internet and launch Little Math and it will automatically check for updates. If an update is available, proceed to update Little Math to the latest version.

3) Your Little Math may be corrupted. Please repair your BrillKids Little Math.


2. You were unable to import your content discs correctly

If you imported your Little Math lessons using the content discs that came in your box set, it might be that the import process was interrupted (e.g., the disc was accidentally ejected, your computer hanged or shut down, etc.).



Try re-importing your content discs, making sure that you finish the entire importing process. If that doesn't help, do try downloading the content files from your BrillKids Account instead. In case you have problems with downloading files, you may try the solution for #1 above.


3. You moved or deleted a file from your Little Math Media Library folder

The media files used in all your Little Math lessons are stored in your computer's Application Data folder (C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BrillKids\Little Math\Media Library). When you delete, move, or rename the media files in your Little Math Media Library, Little Math will not be able to find the files it needs to play your lessons.



See if you can undo the delete action, or rename the file back to its original filename and make sure you place it back to where it was originally. If that is no longer possible, you can just re-import your content files.
