GPX MW6815DT trouble

My pc isn't recognizing my GPX MX6815DT as a mass storage device. It recognizes it as an audio device only. When I try to transfer MP3 files to the player files, it says that there is not enough space. A 3.5KB song should be no problem for a 256MB player. Is there another driver or software that I need? Thanks.

Re: GPX MW6815DT trouble

For those that still use this mp3 player here are some things you need to know.

the gpx mw6815dt can operate as a media player or a usb storage device.

you need to change which state it is in via the System option.
Enter (Sys) from (Mode) go to (Online Device) enter (Mode) select USB Disk or Media Device. When you connect it as a USB Disk you will see all files not shown when connected as a Media Device using windows explorer. Also I suggest you make sure if you format the GPX you stay with the FAT 16 file system.

Note: DRM only works when the gpx is in Media mode.

If you have an SDcard installed you can access it via windows explorer or media player as a usb device only. With media player 11 you can still sync both the internal and sd drive with your library however you won't have drm options since your in usb device mode.

Note: in order to have both usb drives avaiable you need to use the Multi Drive option under (Online Mode) in the (System) menu, other wise you won't see the sdcard.

Re: GPX MW6815DT trouble

Hi, There are some pre-loaded songs on your device, that can lock down your player making it unable to add more songs. Follow these steps to delete all pre-loaded songs and unlock your player for future music downloads. 1. Connect your MW6825DT to your computer. 2. Open ?My Computer? from your computer?s desktop. 3. You will see ?GPX Player? under Audio Device type. 4. Select and right mouse click on ?GPX Player? and select ?Format??. 5. Click ?OK? on the Format WARNING window. 6. Click ?OK? again on ?Format Complete? window. Now try again to transfer some music. It is recommended to use Windows Media Player to transfer music from your computer to your device. Good day, Daniel

Computer does not respond when mp3 is plugged in help !!!

I had a sandisk that had settings in its menu for two different USB modes. Try the option that corresponds to Mass Storage Mode, this allows the device to be recognized like a USB drive. You can then navigate to the music folder to copy mp3 files from your computer.

Iriver E100 is not recognized on PC

That might be a blessing in disguise. I have never liked the non-MSD option, but I tolerate it. You should be able to transfer and view files with the computer recognizing it as an MSD device. If you insist on changing it, use the iRiver plus 3 software from iRiver's website to update the firmware on the player, and your computer will no longer treat it as a Mass Storage Device - don't say I didn't warn you.

Not recognized by PC

First off.. Make sure your software and drivers are up to date...

Second, try re-installing Windows Media Player or if you have WMP 10 installed, try upgrading to WMP 11.

Also, if you plug in something else to your USB port, does the PC recognize it? Or, if you try your GoGear on another computer, does it work ok?

Trouble Installing MP3 player.

Are you using a USB1 or a USB2 connection for the device. I found that on my older computer which still utilizes USB1 I had the same problem but on my newer PC utilizing USB2 it was recognized correctly and I had access to all the folders. Both PCs run XP.
