Question about Sylvania Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Why doesn't my computer recognize my Sylvania SMP4200 when I connect them using the USB port?

My computer does not recognize the player as a removable stroage device, thereby preventing file exchange. In addition, the device does not charge when connected to the computer. Before I lost power, music playback was stunted and stopped frequently. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium OS.

SOURCE: Computer doesn't recognize MP3 player -

I had the same problem, all you have to do is first turn on the Mp3.Then go to settings. Then go down to USB mode. It will probably say, auto detect.But instead scroll down to MSC. If that doesn't work try MTP.

Sansa c200 series – Computer/OS Not Recognizing
Connect the device to the PC in MSC Mode
View/c200: Turn on then press and hold the rewind button while plugging to the PC
If that fails, unplug the Sansa from the computer. Uninstall all the Sansa software in the add/remove programs section of Control Panel. Reinstall the clean version of the software from Sandisk’s website – make sure you get the files for the c200 series. Then replug the Sansa and try again. The root of the problem is that Sansa has one set of drivers and Windows has another. If you plug the mp3 player into the computer before installing the Sansa drivers, the Windows drivers will trump the Sansa’s.
Here is a helpful link from Sandisk on the problem with extra information on Vista operating systems:

Connecting an Eclipse MP3 Player to a Computer


Many people have found that their computers do not recognize the Eclipse mp3 Player, even after connecting with a USB cable. I had the same problem but discovered that the problem lies with the cables themselves. I have several USB 2.0 5-position cables that fit the Eclipse USB port perfectly, but only ONE of them actually works - the cable that came with the player itself. If you've lost this cable, you may be in trouble.

Attached is a screen-grab of the type of USB plug and port involved. You don't see them around very much anymore, and I have no further advice if your player doesn't have a USB port of this shape.

Same thing happened to me with an IPOD. When I plugged it in to one of my USB ports, it ******** up all the USB ports. I suggest reinstalling the drivers for your USB Ports. Then install the software that came with your MP3 Player before replugging it in. Good luck :)

My ipod doesn't recognize on the computer


Hi daycing...

First, make sure your iPod is fully charged and then toggle the Hold switch on and off.
Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore
Go through the 5 R's of iPod troubleshooting, which will often solve your issue. If you're still experiencing the issue after going through each of the steps, then continue for more suggestions.
To determine if your iPod syncs via USB or FireWire, check the table in the Additional Information section below.
Tip: If you are using Windows XP and have recently installed a Service Pack, check the Device Manager. Click the Start menu and click Run. Type "devmgmt.msc" and click OK. If no devices appear in the Windows Device Manager, go here.
Still can't see your iPod?
Several things could keep iPod from appearing in iTunes or Windows Explorer. The most likely causes are listed below-you'll find information for both USB and FireWire (IEEE 1394) iPod connections. Check each one starting from the top of the list to see if that is what's keeping iPod from appearing.
Make sure your computer meets the iPod system requirements
Make sure that your computer meets the system requirements to use iPod with Windows.
If your iPod displays an exclamation point folder or sad iPod icon
If your iPod displays a folder with an exclamation point icon or a sad (unhappy) iPod icon on its screen, or if your iPod doesn't appear in iTunes or My Computer, follow these instructions to resolve the issue.
Charge the iPod and make sure it is getting power
Your iPod must have enough of a charge for your computer to recognize it. Connect your iPod to its power adapter or to a high-power port on your computer to charge your iPod if the battery is depleted. If your iPod is connected through FireWire but isn't getting power from the FireWire bus, your computer may not recognize it.
Secure the iPod's connections
Make sure that there is nothing physically inside or blocking your computer's USB (or FireWire) port, and that the cable connections to your iPod and computer are secure.
Note: If you're using an iPod shuffle (Second Generation), make sure the iPod is inserted securely in the iPod shuffle Dock.
Restart your computer
Sometimes simply restarting your computer can resolve issues.
Connect iPod to a high-powered USB port
If you're connecting an iPod, iPod mini, or iPod shuffle to your Windows computer, make sure that you're connecting it to a high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer.
If you're connecting the iPod to a Windows laptop computer through USB, connect the laptop to a power outlet before connecting your iPod. Also, see iPod not recognized when connected to Windows laptop over USB to be sure that your USB ports are supplying enough power.
Typically, USB 2.0 high-power ports are located directly on your computer. Try connecting your iPod to another USB port on the computer.
Avoid connecting the iPod to a USB hub. Connect the iPod directly to a USB 2.0 port on the computer. If a hub must be used, make sure the hub is USB 2.0, and that it has its own power supply. Also, make sure the hub is connected to a high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer.
If the issue persists, try disconnecting other USB devices from the computer such as printers, cameras, scanners, external hard drives, and USB hubs to determine if there is a conflict in the USB chain.
Check whether your iPod's cable functions properly
Make sure that you are using the cable that came with your iPod. Some third-party cables may not work properly with iPod.
Make sure that nothing is in or blocking your computer's USB or FireWire port.
Check the connections to make sure that the cable is completely plugged in.
Try another known-good FireWire or USB through Dock Connector cable if available.
If swapping out your old cable for another resolves the issue, then your original cable should be replaced.
Place the iPod into Disk Mode
Try placing the iPod into disk mode to see if it is recognized by iTunes, or My Computer.
Check which format iPod is in
iTunes for Windows only recognizes Windows-formatted iPods. You cannot use a Macintosh-formatted iPod with a Windows PC. To learn for which platform your iPod is formatted, follow these instructions.
Check whether your computer's port functions properly
If another FireWire or USB port is available on your computer, try connecting your iPod to it.
If your computer recognizes your iPod after trying a different port, the original port could be faulty.
Note: iPod will not automatically wake up if you connect it to a 4-pin FireWire port. You must press the Select button (the wheel's center button) on the iPod to wake it from sleep.
Check if Windows confuses iPod with network drive
If the drive letter after iPod ("E" in most cases) is mapped to a network drive, both Windows Explorer and iTunes may exhibit strange behavior in relation to the iPod (including preventing iPod from appearing. See "Windows confuses iPod with network drive and may keep iPod from mounting or songs may seem to disappear" for more information.
Your USB or FireWire card isn't recognized by Windows
Make sure that Windows recognizes your USB or FireWire card. Follow these steps to find out if Windows sees your card.
Third-party software may be causing conflicts
Some third-party software (such as security software) may prevent your computer from recognizing your iPod.
Try adjusting the settings of such software, or temporarily disabling it, to see if that resolves the issue.
Also, try booting Windows to Selective Startup mode to disable any third-party startup programs and services, and isolate which software may be causing the issue.
Install or reinstall iTunes
Download and install the latest version of iTunes.
In some cases, you may need to completely uninstall and reinstall iTunes.
Make sure FireWire card is a WHQL-certified IEEE 1394 card
Only certain iPod models sync via FireWire. Refer to the table in the Additional Information section to make sure your iPod can sync via FireWire.
If you have a FireWire (IEEE 1394) card installed in your computer and are using it to connect your iPod, make sure that the card is Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) certified. If it isn't, your iPod may not be recognized, or you may not be able to send music to the iPod.
If you're not sure about your card's WHQL certification, check the inbox material that came with your FireWire card or contact the card's manufacturer. You can view a list of WHQL-certified cards on the Windows Hardware Compatibility List website. To view this:
Go to the Windows Hardware Compatibility List website.
Click on the link that corresponds with your Windows Operating System to view the compatibility list.
Select your Operating System build, and then from the Product Categories pop-up menu, choose 1394 Controller.
Click the Search Now button.
You can also check the list of recommended FireWire and USB cards that have been tested by Apple with iPod and Windows XP (Apple sells FireWire cards that are compatible with iPod at the Apple Store.).
To rule out an issue with your FireWire card, try connecting a different FireWire device to the card to see if your computer recognizes it.
Check for a conflict in the FireWire chain
Only certain iPod models sync via FireWire. Refer to the table in the Additional Information section to make sure your iPod can sync via FireWire.
Your computer may not recognize your iPod if there's a device conflict in the FireWire chain. To see if this is the case:
Disconnect all devices from your computer's FireWire ports.
Connect your iPod to your computer's FireWire port.
If your computer recognizes your iPod, you should troubleshoot for FireWire device conflicts.
There may be an issue with your computer
If another computer is available, verify that the same issues happen with the other computer. If the other computer recognizes your iPod, you may want to troubleshoot for issues with your original computer.
Your iPod needs service
If after following these steps your computer still doesn't recognize iPod, see the iPod Service website to arrange for service.

Computer will not recognize mp3 player, device doesn't light up


The two most likely causes for this is either your USB port or the USB cable itself. Try plugging the device into different ports and if that doesn't work, get yourself a different USB cable. If neither of those works then your device is faulty and the only fix for that is to get it serviced by the manufacturer.

My sony nwz-s638f is not charging if i put it in the plug how can i make it work?


Hi,

Please make sure that the Computer is recognizing the Walkman when connected to the USB port.

Make sure that you're using the supplied USB cable for connecting to the Computer.

If you use the portable player for the first time, if you have not used it for a long time, or the battery is depleted, it may take up to 5 minutes for it to be recognized or start charging. On models with a display, the display will remain blank. If it the portable player is not recognized or does not begin to charge after waiting 5 minutes, reset the player by pressing the reset button.

Disconnect the USB cable from the portable player and then reconnect.

Check the connection status again.

Disconnect the USB cable from the computer and then reconnect.

Check the connection status again.

Check for available space on the player using Windows Media Player or My Computer.

Restart the computer.

Check the connection status again.

Check that the USB cable is firmly connected to both the computer and the player.

Check the connection status again.

If the player is connected to a USB hub, disconnect it and connect it directly to the computer with a dedicated USB cable.

Check the connection status again.

If the player is still not recognized by the computer, disconnect all devices connected to the computer with a USB connection and restart the computer.

After the computer restarts, connect only the Walkman player and test the connection again.

If the player is still not charged by the computer, try a different USB port.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I just purchased a smpk7634 mp3 player. I can't get it to work. The tiny manual that came with it is so tiny I can't read it. Is there a manual or instructions you could email me? My email is:...


Here's the "manual" but it doesn't explain much or very well. One loads music (mp3, mwa or another I can't remember) files by connecting the player to a computer with the supplied usb cable (or any standard usb to usb mini connector) and the player is recognized by the computer (windows at least) as a flash drive. Videos are the same way, although we discovered that many avi videos did not play, only those we converted using the software on the small cd that came with the player. Oh yes, the first time we put something on the player and detached it from the computer, the player did not recognize it - not until we powered off the player and then turned it back on.

How to put msic on it


Hi,
Install the Windows driver included in the product package before connecting your Sylvania MP3 player. Insert the included driver CD into your CD-ROM drive and run the setup file if it does not load automatically. This driver makes sure your computer can recognize and operate the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 2 Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 3 Insert the other end of the same USB cable into the USB port on the computer.
  • 4 Wait for the computer to recognize the Sylvania MP3 player as a connected device. Open your file manager or browser to locate the Sylvania MP3 player as a drive or connected device if your computer does not prompt you automatically.
  • 5 Open the file folder containing the MP3 or WMA digital music files you wish to download to your Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 6 Drag and drop the file or folder icons of your desired digital music onto the Sylvania MP3 player device icon. Drag and drop the digital music into open folders within the Sylvania MP3 player device icon as well.
