    the mp3 player isn't being read by the computer, it doesn't recognize it what-so-ever. The player turns on but that's about it.

If you have a blank screen, just pale blue LCD and no icon or words or anything, chances are that the Firmware is corrupted, and you have to find a clone firmare to reload.

Look for ALI M5661 based MPtools to see if it can detect your mp3. And it is a problem. Very few on the net. This is NOT a Sigmatel.

There is one person, I forgot his URL has details with pictures to show how to bring back the Nextar clone - Ali M5661R based mp3 player.

You have to find a similar unit to use (I have not yet found a thing called PMex) a firware download tool to copy to your pc then use the MPtools or another (I can't remember exactly - isptool what not) to reload the firmware back on to the Nextar. (All the data will be destroyed that is to say the songs).

If you are in Canada, Canadian Tire may still have it that you can buy one. In fact it is on sale this week Oct-04-2008 Saturday on for seven days) for $24.99  before taxes from $39.99.

Beware there is a newer unit called MA588-200S (could be MF588?), and looks different - thinner and looks like a dog biscuit and not a short stubby cigar, buttons and descriptions (seven presets instead of six) are the same but a bigger bubble wrap package. Both bar codes scan as the same unit and price.

The new one may have different processor and radio all that. So I can't say these are exactly the same. I have never tried the MA588.

I have to say that the FM radio is much better than many others and not much noise and sounds better. It does FM direct recording as wav files. And the battery not lithium rechargeble (I use AAA rechargeables) and last very much longer about 8 hours.

Hope it helps.

My mp3 player will not turn on and I dont know why and when i pluge it in my laptop it dosent do anything its dosent evan say something is in the woles where pluge it in and i dont know why


Hello

What version of windows do you have? XP and Vista should work with built in drivers. If you have 98 or ME, you would need a mass storage driver that it appears RCA themselves dont provide.
Try this with the MP3 player plugged in.

Right Click on My Computer and select Manage
Expand the System Tools tab if needed
Select Device Manager

Look for any object with a yellow circle/black exclamation mark

If you see one for the MP3 player, right click, select properties, go to the
driver tab, then click uninstall.

Then, unplug and reconnect the MP3 player and reinstall.

I dont know how to put music in this mp3 player!!!


Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on
"Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that
you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want,
release, right click and then click on "Delete"
Now your mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Be careful and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Thank You

My apple ipod isnt working


Hold down on the center button while holding down on the menu button. The apple logo will appear and this will reboot your Ipod.

Make sure the lock isn't on when you do it.
