I plug it into the usb port while it is turned on, and the options menu comes up, and it will not allow my to play my mp3. I go to the hard drive and click on the removable hard drive files, and none of my songs appear. all I see is my recording file and WMPinfo. none of my songs. but they still appear on my player after uplugging it from the computer. does anyone know how to fix the solution?

I switched my USB setting to autodetect (MTP) from MSC and I was able to see my music files. I have VISTA.

I had the same problem and what i noticed is that the player has two playlists. one on msc and one on autoplay. just switch over to the other and there it is. switch by going to menu-settings-usb

Try switching to MSC on the player's USB setup.

Sorry it will not work with vista.

Usually, Windows will find and automatically install the necessary drivers when you plug your game controller into your computer.
• Plug the game controller into the USB port on the computer. The computer can be turned on when you do this. Windows will recognize the new hardware and set it up to work properly.
Note: Controllers that use game ports (and other ports) are not supported in this version of Windows.
Try this second:

Sync Manager Problme with Vista with LG CU500

The problem is a driver issue. It is strictly a LG/Verizon problem, and not Windows. What you should is hook up your phone your computer LG USB cable and using the Music Essentials CD-ROM.

Install the latest version of BitPim where  you can find at . 
"I hooked up my phone to my computer via the USB cable, and opened BitPim. Much to my dismay, bitpim did not find the COM for the LG Modem".

However, Vista popped up the window in the taskbar telling me that new hardware was detected but could not be installed. I went to Start > Search > Device Manager
Once the Device Manager is opened up, you should see an unknown hardware profile for the USB cable/phone. In my case, Vista seemed to recognize the fact that it was a LG USB Modem, but didn't have the driver. Anyway, right click on the unknown driver and select "update driver software." Surprisingly, Vista will tell you it found a driver. Unfortunately, when when you go to install the driver 2 new unknown drivers will appear.

To fix the 2 unknown drivers, all you have to do is insert the VCAST Music Essentials disk into your disk drive, and point Windows in the direction of the files for the drivers on the VCast Music Essentials CD (in my case, the D: drive).

Windows finished the install, and from their BitPim recognized the cable on COM5.
That should work.

Vista and firewire 1394?

Firewire works fine under Vista, but it's quite possible your USB to Firewire bridge doesn't have proper Vista drivers. You wouldn't expect Vista to include these, they would be installed from a disc that came with your adaptor. USB to Firewire is a questionable option at best... there are often problems with it. You may be better off with a PC-Card or ExpressCard solution, if the laptop is your only computer.

Also, when the camera says "DV IN", it's expecting video from the PC to be sent to it, it's not in capture mode. Most camcorders must be in either "play" mode, or a special "link to PC" mode in order to even be recognized by Windows (any version) as a video input device.

However, until you resolve the issue of supporting your Firewire device in Vista, nothing the camcorder does will be an issue yet. You should check the documentation that came with your USB to Firewire device, the driver disc, etc. for information on Vista support.
