Question about Audio Players & Recorders
At first the device worked perfectly. When I tried to delete the existing music and load different songs using the "my computer" function, I apparently erased the driver and all of it's files. I, now, realize I should have simply reformatted it. This was the first time I tried to change songs on the device and I didn't know I was deleting anything unretrievable. The Windows XP operating system loaded a default MTP driver when prompted but Windows Media Player 11 will not detect the mp3 player, even though is shows up as "audio device" on the "my computer" window. Is there some kind of a software download to replace the missing files. I feel that this could have happened to anybody.
Ok here we go i dunno how i figured this out lol but it took a while. okay so ur gonna go to control panel, device manager, and uninstall the driver for mp3 player. then disconnect mp3 player and reconnect it to reinstall mp3 player. it will recognize it as emerson mp3. right click on it (im running xp) go to properties, click on the tools tab and click on check now on the error checking and select both options of automatic fix file system errors and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors. then hit start and it will start the process of fixing the file error. it takes a couple minutes and when its done disconnect the mp3 player n turn it on and voila!!! it works again. if u need more help u can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. hope this helps yall so u dont throw them away

Try going to Control Panel, System, Hardware, Devices, click on it and update the driver to the MTP device. Should see Emerson MP3 in My Computer. Or uninstall it and reinstall it CHOOSING the device. My XP system kept pointing to my printer (usb) driver. Worked for me with this EMP312-1, cost $12 at Dollar General. Good Luck. Sometimes we get what we pay for, and sometimes we get a lot for what we pay for.

I had similar problem.
Opened package, downloaded songs to only file on mp3.
Seems driver did not load properly.
Would not show what directions indicated.
Would not play songs and could not find songs on mp3 player. Opened mp3 and made new file.
Made music file and copied songs to new file labled music.
Now plays music on mp3!! Hope this helps someone. I still don't think that it works properly,but at least it plays the music.

I did something a little different, but i got the idea from BOOg1. Insted of uninstalling it, just go to update the driver and it will take a few seconds and the mp3 player will work.

I fixed it by uninstalling Media Player 11 from add/remove programs which rolled it back to Media Player 10. Reformatted the device for good measure. Works as advertised now.

I had the same problem, downloaded music would not play. I fixed it by going to the main menu choose music, then Music play and hit the left arrow..an option called Update will appear hit the play button, the MP3 displays "updating" at conclusion the music played. Hope it works.
