MP4 Player Shuts Down When Plugged into USB Port...

I have a "generic" MP4 player that I bought from last years "day after Thanksgiving sale" at Shopko... On the back of the MP4 player it has a brand name, model number, and serial number... The brand name is Studio "a"... The "a" is inside a little box and half a circle, if I could draw it out for you I would... The model # is 06FP05, and the serial # is 3771193H004819 (Made in China)... Here is my problem and I do not know if it can be fixed or how to fix it... My MP4 player was working great!!! I could plug it into my USB port and download my songs onto it and let it charge the battery... All of a sudden one day I went to plug it into the USB port and the screen came up like normal that says, "USB Connected"... That is the screen (that also shows you if the battery is charging)... and then "POOF" it was gone as quick as it came up!!! The little noise came through my computer speakers that let me know it was recognizing it then soon after, the noise that let me know the computer lost the signal!!! I have done some experimentation and found that when the computer is "sleeping" or "hibernating" I can plug the MP4 player into the USB port and it will begin to charge the battery but of course I cannot download any songs onto it... If I put the computer into "hibernating" mode, "sleep" mode, or restart the computer and the plug the MP4 player into the USB port, it will begin to charge my battery and keep the "USB Connected" screen on, on my MP4 player UNTIL Windows starts to load and then the screen disappears all over again... Each time that screen disappears, I have to hit the reset button on my MP4 player just to get it to work again!!! By the way... I and running Windows Vista Home Edition on my computer and I have tried all the different USB ports and they all do the same thing... HELP!!!

    Mine is a Studio A MP3 & Video Player, and I'm having similar problems. I've used it for about 1 week (bought it last summer as an xmas gift for myself and just now getting around to using it . . which could be a problem at Shopko with their 30-day policy or whatever).  It was charging just fine -- and then today it shut itself off while it was running -- so I figured it needed a charge. It was doing this strange screen flashing thing -- no image on the screen, just bright and dim, bright and dim.  I plugged it in and it continues to do that.  Now it won't start up at all, whether plugged in or not.  LEMON . . . I notice there is no mention of warranty in the paperwork or on the package -- so I may be sunk -- but thx for writing; I'll print yours off and take it in to show them I'm not the only one who's having problems! 

    Item # 080-68052.  Made in China . . . so why am I surprised?! I violated my own rule -- never buy electronics that don't have a warranty.  I always use my AMEX or VISA card to purchase things like this because of their built-in extended warranty feature (which I have very successfully made claims on - they're great folks to work with ) --  but if you don't have a warranty to begin with, that's not much help.

SOURCE: Computer doesn't recognize unit when connected

I am guessing there is a problem with the driver for the audio player. I have a Coby Audio Player MP-C827, and one day my brother decided to just remove it from the computer without correctly stopping it. Ever since, whenever I plug in it into my PC, it just does not open...nothing happens. And I don't have the cd to re-install the driver files. With respect to all of the above, a driver file which is needed by the mp3 is either damaged or corrupt. Contact me at

SOURCE: Computer doesn't recognize MP3 player -

I think I have a solution. First you turn on the MP3 Player and then go to the menu. Go down to settings. Then, go to USB. Go down to "MSC" and hit the middle button. It should take you back to the settings menu. That means you successfully changed that setting. Now plug the MP3 Player back into the computer and open up "My Computer." It should show up. I hope this helps!

SOURCE: I bought a generic MP3/MP4 Touch screen player it

It's serious!
The mp4 player can't be turned on. The only method is take it to a repair shop.
Best wishes.

How can I get my MP4 player detected on my dell computer as currently it is not being recognised when I plug it in.

I'm assuming its being plugged into a USB port? Have you tried plugging it into a different port. If its still not recognized. go to "Device Manager", then to "USB Serial Bus Controllers" and delete all the ones that are listed. It will not allow you to delete some, just ignore those and delete all the rest, Then reboot your computer, wait until its finished re-installing all the controllers, then plug in your player.

How do i download videos to my mp3 player

Firstly, if your player is strictly an MP3 player, it will not play videos. MP3 is a music file format. The generic/umbrella term for video files is MP4 (MP4 is just one video format, but is not the only one).
To download files from your PC to your player, hook up the player to a USB port on your PC using the USB cable that came with the player. Once connected , the player will show up in Windows file explorer as a removable drive. Copy and paste the files you want to download on that removable drive using Windows file explorer or Windows Media Player or iTunes

Mp4 player not working

Check your MP4 player's system requirements.
Some MP4 players are only capable of working with certain operating systems and hardware, so refer to your player's documentation to ensure it is capable of functioning with your PC.
Change the USB port your MP4 player is connected to if you have confirmed your PC can function with your MP4 player.
Disconnect other USB devices, and try connecting your player to another USB port if you are still having problems.

Try restarting your PC if it is capable of working with your MP4 player.
Restarting your PC resets non-functioning USB ports, which may be your problem.

Make sure your USB cable is connected properly.
If your player requires you to install drivers, make sure you install them.

Try connecting your player to another PC to see if the new PC recognizes it.
If it does, chances are your computer does not support the hardware necessary to run your player.

Reset your MP4 player if your PC is still unable to recognize it.
Resetting your player varies depending on the manufacturer and model, so refer to your player's documentation.

Contact your player's manufacturer if you are still unable to get it to work with your PC.

Hey why don't you see if you can pry the two halves apart like an ipod, and then re solder the headphone jack. Or try wedging something around the edge of the jack to hold it where you want it. try this first. here is a link to youtube search.

HD6330 GoGear seems to have a virus

Chris, The reason the gogear shuts down is the battery needs charging. The lead that was supplied when new, was fitted with three plugs on it, one went into a power outlet (AC) one plugged into the base of the player, the last one (USB) into your P.C.
You should also have a CD with Philips device manager on, this needs downloading to your laptop, Windows media player version 10. is the only version Philips recomend for up / downloading music to the player.

Turn off the player and let charge for about 4 hrs via USB port. This will charge the battery.

To upload songs to the player plug in to USB port and look for the removable drive through my computer or windows explorer. drag and drop MP3s into to removable drive window.
