I have somehow lost the ability to sync music to my ipaq rz 3715. Media Player 10 says it cannot detect a device. I have pressed f5 to refresh and this does not fix it. This happened ever since I installed a video codec pack for media player. I have since removed the codecs to see if this fixes the syncing problem but it hasn't.
I also cannot see the device in 'My computer' so am wondering if my computer is not detecting the device at all. I have checked the cradle is plugged into a usb port (have checked using all ports. However my pc does make a sound when I put my ipaq in the cradle.
Any ideas how i can fix this?

Re: Lost ability to sync with Media player 10
You could try reinstalling WMP10. You can do this by going to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Components. First you need to uncheck the bos to remove it, then go back in and recheck the box and it will be reinstalled.

1...You must download and install Windows Media Player 11 on your computer. NOTE...Some older MP3 players will not work with Windows Media Player 11 or Windows 7 with Windows Media Player 11.

Normal audio CD tracks should be converted to mp3 files onto the computer's hard drive, first.
This is called ripping or RIP function.
There are several programs that can RIP audio CD.
It is important to convert music into the correct bitrate for the player to match for playback. (192 kbps is good quality and often used)
You can use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 for conversion.
When you use WMP 10 or 11 and the player is detected in the program:
1. Tell the player were your music library is: setup your music library.
2. Create a playlist; make playlist name and add mp3 files to the list.
3. Synchronize the playlist with mp3 files to the player.
If the player cannot be detected in WMP 10 or 11, but only can be viewed as a removable disk in "My Computer" : use the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method to put mp3 files from the computer onto the player.

It should be recognized by your computer.
I did a search for drivers and they are not needed for this model.
For music, After the computer has recognized it has been plugged in. Start, My Computer, and it should show up in there as (my sansa or sansa clip) something along those lines.
You may open it and drag your music files into the accroding folders inside the device.
OR You may use Windows Media Player 11 to Sync to your Mp3 Player. The Sansa Clip has problems with Windows Media Player 10 so i would reccomend using Media Player 11 to sync.
For future help or more questions please comment,
I hope this has helped :)
Before you even think about installing this player, uninstall window media player 11 and get windows media player 10. Windows Media Player 11 ruins this player. Then, use windows media player 10 to sync music to this GoGear. You can get the software (which is not essential for basic use) at www.philips.com/support - enter country and model #, then click on software & drivers.
