Question about Siren Edge MP3 Player

Siren MP3 player not recognized by Windows Explorer‏‏

Hello:

I have a Siren IV 4GB player and it is not recognized by Windows Explorer anymore.

USB connection good, says "USB Connected" and when found the new hardware is installed correctly.

I tried uninstalling the device and reinstalled it but it didn't work.

Device Manager: device is recognized and says device is working properly.

I cannot see it on Windows Explorer anymore like an additional drive.

I have 2 hard disk drives, 1 CD burner and 1 DVD burner, so the last drive letter is G:

I used to be able to do this but since I reinstalled Windows XP it's no longer recognized and I cannot copy and paste songs like before. The device is useless.

When the device is recognized by Windows, a window appears and asks me what I want to do (i.e. sync it with Windows Media Player, take no action, etc..) but the Open with Windows Explorer or Open it with Windows Media Player options do not show up.

I tried to conect it to another PC and it worked. The computer recognizes the device and I'm able to see it on Windows Explorer as an additional drive, so this pretty much rules out a problem with the MP3 player.

Please help.

Thanks,
Roberto

    I have a duocore computer on XP. it says new hardware found but cannot install and says an error. I have a small coby which did the same thing until I changed the usb setting to usb-msc instead of usb-mtp. is there some way to do this on the siren? I have media player11. My son used it on an older computer and it works so it is something with the new computer.

Samsung YP-S3 not recognized by computer


I think you have answered the question yourself. Change the USB cable.
If that doesn't make any difference try searching for the hardware again. Check the settings and drivers are working. Roll back the driver etc.

Adding music to mp3 player???


There was an installation Cd that was supposed to come with it. See if Windows Media Player recognizes it - if so, you will not need explorer. Unfortunately, Siren does not keep the software on their website, but you can call them: 254.224.0222

Here is a link to the user's manual:

Siren Edge 4 gig Boot error,


Siren's software support is bad, but you can call them: 254.224.0222

Sometimes reformatting a player can cause key system files to be lost - this particular mp3 player does not have a recovery tool or a firmware upgrade that I know of, so you can try the Windows Recovery Method: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Let me know how it turns out.

HELP!!!


The songs that you are syncing may not be in the right format for this particular Mp3 player. Where did you get the songs?
Q: What type of files can I play?
A: Mp3 and WMA files. DRM protected WMA files, such as those purchased from many online music services, must be copied to the player via Windows Media Player or the music management software compatible with your online music store.

The player does not support AAC file playback.
(i.e: iTunes will not work)

SanDisk Cruzer 4Gb not found on XP


I have the same issue. I have found a temporary solution though. I have a Sandisk 4GB Cruzer and an HP Laserjet 1022N connected VIA USB. When I uninstall the USB Printing support driver from Device Manager then plug in the Cruzer it recognizes it right away. Not quite sure why this would happen though
