Computer Won't Let Me Access the Device

I have a Slick MP3 and video player that I bought from Family Dollar. The instructions say that when the player is plugged into the USB slot on the computer, it should show up as a disk drive where you can drag music directly to the player. The instructions also say that you can use Windows Media Player to load the player with songs. Neither is true so far. Windows Explorer does not show that there is any other drive on my system, and Windows Media Player does not detect that there is a device plugged in. How do I get my computer to detect this device? It has no trouble detecting any other devices I plug in (cameras, flash drives, etc.). Thank you for your help.

    Same problem here.  Every thing else I plug in works fine, the mp3 player is charging, but my computer doesn't recognize any new hardware and the player isn't listed under "My Computer."

    There is no software included.  I've made sure I have most recent WMP (11).  I have SP 3.  Deleting all the usb entries and reinstalling my usb drivers didn't help.

    Thanks for the help anyway.

Hey there!
please do the following one by one

unplug the power cable going into the power supply. wait for a while and plug it back

install software with updated drivers. check to make sure you have the most recent motherboard drivers.download if necessary.plenty of sites available

update your windows media player

get Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2 if possible

goto Start Menu->Control Panel->System and then clicking the Hardware tab and going to Device Manager. in Device Manager you could delete all entries with "USB" in the name and reboot. let Windows redetect the USB devices.
uninstall your usb drivers and download the latest ones available and reinstall your usb drivers.

Like most MP3 player with an inbuilt internal battery, your Slick 2gb mp3 music and video player will have an internal Li-Ion rechargeable battery that will be recharged via your USB Data cable while connected to an USB port on a PC/LAPTOP or USB charger.

I'm telling everyone who would listen. DO NOT BUY THE DOLLAR STORE SLICK MP4 NOT 3. It is not what you think it is, it is actually a storage place for the personnel in that particular company. WORD!!!!!!!!

Cant put videos on mp3


It may be that your mp3 has specific file formats that it accepts for videos, which is most common - in which case you will have to covert or compress any standard format video into an acceptable video.

Your vidoes may be too big in actual screen size or your slick mp3 player doesn't accept videos.

You may also need the software compatible with your mp3 player in order to download video's successfully. You will need to download or install the software for your mp3 player which will make it easier to upload vdieo's. You may be able to do this via the manufacturers site, or prompted to do this when adding the device to your computer.

Slick mp3 player


When you try to play it the screen should say locked. Push the bottom button that says hold and the screen should say unlocked. Hope that helps. I just bought the same MP3 player and am liking it so far.
