dont load crappy software that comes with these things,
windows generic usb storage device drivers works solidly.
just treat it like a flash drive, drag and drop your mp3s into the music folder.
and make sure its charged, i.e. leave it plugged into the computer for al least 30 mins

Hi

Try and reset the player by inserting a pointed object inside the small hole(on tha back of the player), press and hold for 5-10 seconds to let the player reset. If this doesn't work then connect the player with the computer and let it charge for a while. Now go to control panel-> administrative tools-> computer management/system management-> storage, check if you are able to see the mp3 player here. If it is visible then try a reset and try again. If not then reset the player while it is connected with the system. This will resolve your issue.

Hope this helps...

First, make sure your iPod is fully charged and then toggle the Hold switch on and off.
Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore
Go through the 5 R's of iPod troubleshooting, which will often solve your issue. If you're still experiencing the issue after going through each of the steps, then continue for more suggestions.
To determine if your iPod syncs via USB or FireWire, check the table in the Additional Information section below.
Tip: If you are using Windows XP and have recently installed a Service Pack, check the Device Manager. Click the Start menu and click Run. Type “devmgmt.msc” and click OK. If no devices appear in the Windows Device Manager, go here.
Still can't see your iPod?
Several things could keep iPod from appearing in iTunes or Windows Explorer. The most likely causes are listed below—you'll find information for both USB and FireWire (IEEE 1394) iPod connections. Check each one starting from the top of the list to see if that is what's keeping iPod from appearing.
Make sure your computer meets the iPod system requirements
Make sure that your computer meets the system requirements to use iPod with Windows.
If your iPod displays an exclamation point folder or sad iPod icon
If your iPod displays a folder with an exclamation point icon or a sad (unhappy) iPod icon on its screen, or if your iPod doesn't appear in iTunes or My Computer, follow these instructions to resolve the issue.
Charge the iPod and make sure it is getting power
Your iPod must have enough of a charge for your computer to recognize it. Connect your iPod to its power adapter or to a high-power port on your computer to charge your iPod if the battery is depleted. If your iPod is connected through FireWire but isn't getting power from the FireWire bus, your computer may not recognize it.
Secure the iPod's connections
Make sure that there is nothing physically inside or blocking your computer's USB (or FireWire) port, and that the cable connections to your iPod and computer are secure.
Note: If you're using an iPod shuffle (Second Generation), make sure the iPod is inserted securely in the iPod shuffle Dock.
Restart your computer
Sometimes simply restarting your computer can resolve issues.
Connect iPod to a high-powered USB port
If you're connecting an iPod, iPod mini, or iPod shuffle to your Windows computer, make sure that you're connecting it to a high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer.
If you're connecting the iPod to a Windows laptop computer through USB, connect the laptop to a power outlet before connecting your iPod. Also, see iPod not recognized when connected to Windows laptop over USB to be sure that your USB ports are supplying enough power.
Typically, USB 2.0 high-power ports are located directly on your computer. Try connecting your iPod to another USB port on the computer.
Avoid connecting the iPod to a USB hub. Connect the iPod directly to a USB 2.0 port on the computer. If a hub must be used, make sure the hub is USB 2.0, and that it has its own power supply. Also, make sure the hub is connected to a high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer.
If the issue persists, try disconnecting other USB devices from the computer such as printers, cameras, scanners, external hard drives, and USB hubs to determine if there is a conflict in the USB chain.
Check whether your iPod's cable functions properly
Make sure that you are using the cable that came with your iPod. Some third-party cables may not work properly with iPod.
Make sure that nothing is in or blocking your computer's USB or FireWire port.
Check the connections to make sure that the cable is completely plugged in.
Try another known-good FireWire or USB through Dock Connector cable if available.
If swapping out your old cable for another resolves the issue, then your original cable should be replaced.
Place the iPod into Disk Mode
Try placing the iPod into disk mode to see if it is recognized by iTunes, or My Computer.
Check which format iPod is in
iTunes for Windows only recognizes Windows-formatted iPods. You cannot use a Macintosh-formatted iPod with a Windows PC. To learn for which platform your iPod is formatted, follow these instructions.
Check whether your computer's port functions properly
If another FireWire or USB port is available on your computer, try connecting your iPod to it.
If your computer recognizes your iPod after trying a different port, the original port could be faulty.
Note: iPod will not automatically wake up if you connect it to a 4-pin FireWire port. You must press the Select button (the wheel's center button) on the iPod to wake it from sleep.
Check if Windows confuses iPod with network drive
If the drive letter after iPod ("E" in most cases) is mapped to a network drive, both Windows Explorer and iTunes may exhibit strange behavior in relation to the iPod (including preventing iPod from appearing. See "Windows confuses iPod with network drive and may keep iPod from mounting or songs may seem to disappear" for more information.
Your USB or FireWire card isn't recognized by Windows
Make sure that Windows recognizes your USB or FireWire card. Follow these steps to find out if Windows sees your card.
Third-party software may be causing conflicts
Some third-party software (such as security software) may prevent your computer from recognizing your iPod.
Try adjusting the settings of such software, or temporarily disabling it, to see if that resolves the issue.
Also, try booting Windows to Selective Startup mode to disable any third-party startup programs and services, and isolate which software may be causing the issue.
Install or reinstall iTunes
Download and install the latest version of iTunes.
In some cases, you may need to completely uninstall and reinstall iTunes.
Make sure FireWire card is a WHQL-certified IEEE 1394 card
Only certain iPod models sync via FireWire. Refer to the table in the Additional Information section to make sure your iPod can sync via FireWire.
If you have a FireWire (IEEE 1394) card installed in your computer and are using it to connect your iPod, make sure that the card is Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) certified. If it isn't, your iPod may not be recognized, or you may not be able to send music to the iPod.
If you're not sure about your card's WHQL certification, check the inbox material that came with your FireWire card or contact the card's manufacturer. You can view a list of WHQL-certified cards on the Windows Hardware Compatibility List website. To view this:
Go to the Windows Hardware Compatibility List website.
Click on the link that corresponds with your Windows Operating System to view the compatibility list.
Select your Operating System build, and then from the Product Categories pop-up menu, choose 1394 Controller.
Click the Search Now button.
You can also check the list of recommended FireWire and USB cards that have been tested by Apple with iPod and Windows XP (Apple sells FireWire cards that are compatible with iPod at the Apple Store.).
To rule out an issue with your FireWire card, try connecting a different FireWire device to the card to see if your computer recognizes it.
Check for a conflict in the FireWire chain
Only certain iPod models sync via FireWire. Refer to the table in the Additional Information section to make sure your iPod can sync via FireWire.
Your computer may not recognize your iPod if there's a device conflict in the FireWire chain. To see if this is the case:
Disconnect all devices from your computer's FireWire ports.
Connect your iPod to your computer's FireWire port.
If your computer recognizes your iPod, you should troubleshoot for FireWire device conflicts.
There may be an issue with your computer
If another computer is available, verify that the same issues happen with the other computer. If the other computer recognizes your iPod, you may want to troubleshoot for issues with your original computer.
Your iPod needs service
If after following these steps your computer still doesn't recognize iPod, see the iPod Service website to arrange for service.

Connect once again and check if the device is detected. If detected save your files to a seperate folder and erase off all memory, reinstall aftera virus scan and check if this works. If not detected it could be a device memory fault, if the power is fine and showing a good charge try to reset and try, if not put the vedice on charge for 12-24 hours, check this out, i hope it works .. good day.

try to charge in different computer

Samsung YP-U3... | Answered on Jul 03, 2010


MP3 player is still charging because the battery and other components are still working fine.

The memory storage could have gone bad. You may try to connect the player into different computer to see if you'll get the same problem. If you do get the same problem, you need to check the Disk Management to see if the player will be detected or not. Here's how:

1. Connect the player to the computer.
2. Right click "My Computer" and select "Manage".
3. Click on Disk Management and a window will appear.
4. Write down the drive letters that you will see in that window.
5. Without closing the Disk Management window, unplug the player from the computer.

If there's a drive letter disappears, then that is your player. But if nothing disappears, then the computer is no longer detecting your player.

You need to contact the manufacturer and have them replace the memory storage inside the player, and reload the program.

Thank you and good luck!

Mine does this too, and I discovered that if you hold the top two buttons (the on/off and the one beside that), while sliding the hold bar the unit will shut off. Then you can turn it on again and 50/50 it won't be rewinding anymore.

At least this way you don't have to take a trip to the computer to plug it in.
