My Zen 2 GB portable mp3 player is not working. It was docked on my computer and when I looked at it, it seems to be stuck on ''shuttind down''. No matter what I do nothing happens and Windows does not recognize it being plugged in via a usb cable. Always worked in the past (purchased in Aug of 2008). Does anyone have an idea of what might be the problem. Item was not dropped or used out of the normal modes of downloading and playing music.
I located a reset on the mp3 player and used it by inserting a paper clip in the little tiny reset hole. Fixed the problem, but trying to locate the reset hole is no small feat, a magnifying glass would probably be useful.

To be honest it probably is not cost effictive to repair any but the most expensive MD decks.
I'd suggest you look for a working twin to yours on ebay and buy it.
I spent $350 to get a high end MD deck repaired and the repair only lasted six months. This is even more true with portables.
Watch out for any portable with odd rechargable batteries, there are several legendary protables which cannot be used as the batteries have not been made in years. Replacements if found are overly expensive and probably old, used replacements have little life left in them.
I hope this helps the many people searching for drivers for this digital music player...First one should completely read the DMP-90 USERS GUIDE,SPECIFICLY the Appendage....I wonder if this is a major reason why users cannot get the MP3 player to work ??? If it simply does not connect to ones computer ...... the reason will be that the Parallel Port Mode is incorrectly set...So how do we check this ? First click START > then Right Click My Computer > then Properties .>then Hardware > then Device Manager ......<br /><img src="hairy_kiore_4.gif" /><br />Now Expand + on Ports (Com & LPT)<br /><br /><img src="hairy_kiore_0.gif" /><br />If it does not state ECP Printer Port the DMP-90 will not have a connection with the computer...<br />So lets say it only reads Printer port (with no ECP in front of it) ...Well one has to set this within the bios of ones computer.. So if one does not know how to do this get a friend who does ....<br />Now the drivers ...That work with XP..Heres the link..<br />http://drivers.downloadroute.com/D-Link-DMP-90-Mp3-Manager-041502.html<br />and the file name....<br />Dlinkdmp90_app_041502.exe<br /><img src="hairy_kiore_2.gif" /><br /><br />Install in Folder.....It will have 3 files...<br /><img src="hairy_kiore_3.gif" /><br />Open Readme text file and read it....It basicly says ...Execute the port95nt.exe program first. It will automatically upgrade your Win2000/NT/XP with the new patches. then reboot your computer..then one can move the cakernt.exe file into another directory or folder ....then Double click the cakernt.exe and it will activate the program for downloading the MP3 files into the player.....I actually never moved the cakernt.exe..I just double clicked it from its install folder and dragged the MP3's into it.......<br /><br /><br /><br />
Sounds to me like a oscillation in some circuit. This is a common issue with unstable circuits that can happen to any Op Amp product device. It can be brought on by a connection issue as well. The noise is best investigated with a scope to find out what it looks like and then to find the problem on the bench. I bet Tascam does not repair it but just replaces a card or board in the unit.
If you want to burn a CD you have to make a master. For 2 cd's you have to make 2 masters, one for each recording.
The best way to handle this is to "create a song" for each speech giver and give each a name.This is because you can make only one master copy of a song before burning a Cd.
But another way is to :
1. Make a master of the first speech giver (who is on one track) and record to the Cd.
2. Make a new master of the second speech giver (on the other track) and record to Cd.
As long as you don't mind, the second mastering will overwrite the first one that you did, but then you already have burned a copy of that Cd!
After speaking with a Hitachi consultant friend they said the individual dock is not sold seperately from the whole unit currently, at one point it was available but not now. She suggested a few things to try. 1. Look at online parts stores for electronics.. it may be a long time GOOGLING but she said some older suppliers may still have stock. She said the part number on the dock itself is what you need to look for not the actual AXM system number. 2. You can get a 3.5mm headset jack to RCA output cables (the red and white male ends) that would be able to plug into the input of the unit and you would plug the headset jack in the Ipod like headphones. 3. Look on ebay or other sales sites for used systems like yours that are not working or broken. You can get the extra part from them and discard the non functioning part.. or contact the seller to see about only being sent the ipod dock.
Connect the unit to your computer with the USB. It will show up as an external hard drive. Click on the unit from the menu and you will see 3 folders on the menu. Drag any mp3 music file from your computer to the "Music" folder on the unit. The problem you may run into however is that itunes music are copy righted and many songs on your computer may be mp4. You may need to rip directely from the cd's onto the computer, or even burn to a disc and then rip them back.
This a memory problem ,try to look for the reset button and press it .
If you can't find the reset button then the other option is unplug the
unit for 24 hours the purpose is to reset and dessipate or drain the
charged current .
