    Hi, I have a mp3 player (Ekon). Don't know why my WinXp system stop recognize this device. When I plug it, it simple doesn't appear on screen (despite on the device you can read "starting") the truth is that I can't do nothing. I've tried the Windows update without success and as far as I remember when I bought this device it didn't come with any CD. So you you have a similar problem and find a solution I would appreciate you let me know. Thank you.

If you are connecting it to a non powered USB you may have problems connecting it(by non powered I mean a usb hub that is not AC/DC powered; only powered by your usb port), but if it has worked before, try swapping usb ports and see if it's recognised. Sometimes USB can have a power issue with certain hardware.

Computer wont recognize the mp3


Try plugging your device to the USB port in the back of the computer. On older computers, the front USB ports are USB1 while the ones in the back are USB2, and I've seen it happen when some devices would go completely unnoticed if they were plugged into USB1.

If that doesn't help, try plugging it into a different computer. If that computer also doesn't recognize it, the problem may lie in the device.

When mp3 is plugged in, computer won't recognize it-so won't sync


try resetting it to factory settings.if that doesnt work you have to generate a system file. you can do this by recording your own voice in the player and saving it. this generates the system file and the computer will be able to recognize the player.thanks for using fixya!. please dont forget to rate my solution!

Comp not recognizing mp3 device


to gabby, some computer may not even recognize mp3 player from a removable disk, i would suggest that your mp3 player will serve as a back up...
tranfer all your music to a folder to a fixed drive like drive c: then change the format w/c suits for your pc's media player compatibility like mp3 formats then, after your done transfer again all your songs to your back up mp3, or better yet scan all your music w/ an anti virus like kaspersky, hope this would help

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!

Sansa e250


I am running a Sansa and an Ipod simultaneosuly with no conflict, so the problem is definitely with the Sansa.

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.

Mp3 cendyne 128mb wont be recognized


What services is it not showing up on? Windows Media Player? Try downloading Media Monkey (they have a free version) - it will recognize the player, and you can use Media Monkey to view, transfer songs.

if you have a Windows-based computer, you may have to reformat the iPod by going to My Computer, right-clicking on iPod logo, and then selecting "Format" player (only do this as a last resort - iPod's are generally so good that you just plug n play). The apple website has good info if you need Vista-related support for this.
