Re: connection issue with usb

USB can be finicky. First try switching ports. If you are on a USB hub, try connecting directly to the computer. If you are using front access ports, try switching to rear ones. Next try switching to a different USB contorller. IE if you have different controllers on your motherborad or some of your usb ports are on a PCI or PCMCIA card try switching between these. Finally update the drivers for your USB controller if none of the previous steps have worked. Usually these don't get updated very often, but have your computer search Windows update or go to the manufacturer site just in case. Try it on another computer just to be sure that nothing is corrupt with your Windows installation or set up. If you still have no luck you likely have a damaged cable or a dirty or damaged port on the player. Try cleaning the connection port on the player. If the cable is to blame, you can purchase a dock for the H10, though they are very hard to track down these days.

My philips gogear vibe wont turn on

Reset your GoGear with something sharp like the tip of a pen or the end of a paper clip,

if you're device isn't working properly or there's a frozen display.

Insert the sharp object into the "Reset" hole (located at the bottom of the player), and hold it there until the device turns off.

If resetting the device does nothing to restore the display, access the "Philips Device Manager" through your computer to recover the GoGear.

Click "Start" on your computer, then "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Aria Device Manager," and then "Philips Device Manager."

This will launch the "Philips Device Manager." Make sure the GoGear is turned off completely. Connect your GoGear to your computer while holding down the "Volume Up" button.

Continue to hold the "Volume Up" button on your GoGear, until the "Philips Device Manager" recognizes the device and enters recovery mode.

Click the "Repair" button when it appears on your computer, then folow the steps to fully recover the GoGear.

Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer and restart the device.

Recharge your device if your GoGear dies suddenly while playing.

Connect the GoGear to your computer via the supplied USB cord.

Plug one end of the USB cord into a functional, open USB port on your computer. Plug the free, smaller end of the USB cord firmly into the small USB jack on your GoGear and turn your computer on.

This will begin the charging process of your GoGear.

If recharging doesn't work, the battery may need to be replaced.

Check that your GoGear isn't in standby mode. Hold the "Power" button for two seconds to turn it back on.

hope this helps

Wont sync to my computer and the computer will not recunize it how do i fix this

Go into the control panel, click on system, then device manager and then search the list and see if any red or yellow exclamation marks are present. If none are than unplug all your USB cables going to the computer. Next open up Universal Serial Controllers and uninstall all the devices listed, close the open windows and shutdown the computer, wait 10 seconds after complete shutdown and turn computer back on. Let windows boot completly up and it will reinstall all the USB drivers again and probaly have you reboot the system. After it boots back up install your software to your player, after installed than plug your player in and it should work. If it works OK than plug the USB devices you unplugged earlier back up 1 at a time, windows will detect it and load the required drivers again for each device you plug in. After all your devices are re-installed do a shutdown, wait 10 seconds and reboot. Everything should work normally now.

Nwz-e438f will not play, or connect to computer

Please try connecting the Walkman to a different USB port on the Computer and check if that helps.

Please make sure that there is no other USB devices connected to the Computer at the same time.

If there was no change after the player was reset, connect it to the computer and reset it again, leaving it connected.

Keep the Walkman connected to the Computer for 4 hours to fully charge the battery. Then, check whether the Walkman is working properly.

Ensure that the HOLD switch is not activated.

If the issue still persists after performing the steps provided above service of the Walkman is required.

Battery on Sony Walkman NWZ-E436F

ok, just tried something with maybe a solution....

I was connected via an usb hub to my laptop, then it said battery is full, it apparently didn't charge.

When i connect my usb cable directly to my laptop it started to charge again!!.

My usb hub is not connected to a adapter so all power comes from the USB port, this may be not strong enough to charge your walkman.

Try this (so directly connect to your desk / laptop) it may work!

File System Error!?

Ok, so what you need to do is plug your player into the computer. Then, in the go to my computer in your start area.
In your computer folder, you should have a removable disk (D:), this is your player.
Right click on the tab and go to Format, click on quick format and then start.
The next window that should pop up will say that it will may erase all the files on the device. That is ok. It will erase all the music you had on there, but that is easy enough to load back on.
Wait for it to finish, unplugg it, turn it on, and you should be good. All you have to do now is reload the music!
I had to figure this out for myself just a few minutes ago because I was having this same problem. Good Luck!

MP3 can't work normally

With the YP-u3 connected to the USB port and internet connected, start Samsung Media Studio software, you should get notification of a firmware update to download which fixed the recognition problem for me

Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player Problem connection

Found the solution on another site ( To quote user AFHavemann :

"* Plug in the player so the USB bus can see it.

* Once it’s recognized (i.e., the device screen reads "Charging" and "USB Disconnected"), go to the Control Panel and click "System"

* Choose "Hardware" then "Device Manager" tab.

* Look for the name of your device under “Portable Devices” in the list

* If the name of your player is under “MTP Device” then the correct drivers are probably loaded

* Right-click on the name of your device and click "Properties"

* Click “Update Driver”"

Then follow the prompts from there. The computer searches for the driver software, etc., and reinstalls/resets information related to the device, which fixed things such that the computer will now recognize the device. I'm not sure what causes the problem, but this solution seems to reset whatever's gone wrong.

Usb connection

Try taking out the battery and see of that helps.

If not, straighten a paperclip and insert into the RESET hole for 10 seconds (should feel a light click).

Make sure there's no debris in your USB port on the player.
