Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

Open Question

My computer can't find my Lyra HC308A mp3 player

When I plug the mp3 player into my computer, the computer responds with ''Unknown Device''. Also, the player doesn't seem to register when I use Windows Media Player or Yahoo! Jukebox. I am uncertain if I need to reinstall the driver and if so where I could find this driver.

Hi Mina. An internal memory corruption might have occurred on your player, and would need to format your player through "Disk Management" (I'm assuming you have Windows XP or Vista). Here's how: (1) First, set your player to MSC mode by navigating your menu as follows: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode Choose "MSC" (2) Open "Computer Management" by right-clicking on the "My Computer" icon, then selecting "Manage" (3) Your "Computer Management" window should be divided into 2 panes. On the left pane, click on "Disk Management" (4) On the upper right pane of "Disk Management", you should find the drive letter corresponding to your Sansa E250. The lower section also contains the drive # pertaining to your E250. Right-click on either drive letters pertaining to the E250 and select "Format". Follow the on-screen prompts. Make sure that the "Quick Format" checkbox remains un-checked. In general, Disk Management is more the effective tool for formatting your E250 and assuming the format processing completed without any errors, you may now use your player as you would. You may want to set the mode of your MP3 player back to "MTP" (if you're going to download subscription songs -- otherwise, just leave it in MSC mode) by navigating your menu as follows: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode Choose "MTP" In case you get the error "Unable to Complete Format" or the format process is unable to complete, you may want to call the SanDisk Tech Support guys for more advanced troubleshooting (I call `em when I'm at my wit's end lol) I hope it works :)

I had the same problem, all you have to do is first turn on the Mp3.Then go to settings. Then go down to USB mode. It will probably say, auto detect.But instead scroll down to MSC. If that doesn't work try MTP.

I bought this mp3 for my son and had the same problem. Well, it would try to install the device, then say that the device was not recognized. Stupid Vista. So, this is how I made it work: open "Computer" press the reset button on the mp3, press and hold the play button while you connect the USB, continue holding play until you see an icon show up. This seemed to work okay. Hope this helps.

My rd2765 is not showing up on my computer


Hi roquehanzo...
Double left click "Hy Computer"...look under "Devices with removable storage"...Your player should be listed there..if not
*******************************************************************************************************************
Try this solution to your problem.
Go to Device Manager
To get to Device Manager you will:
Right click on My Computer>Properties>click the Hardware Tab>Device Manager.
After you are in Device Manager look for your MP3 player or Unit.
Here you should see no "Yellow" exclamation points.
If you do they they are telling you that you have a device conflict.
If you currnetly have your unit plugged in, you may notice the "unknown device" which would be your Player or Unit.
If you unit has an exclamation point by it, then you will need to click on it and delete it.
After you remove all devices with conflicts then click on refresh and search again for your MP3 player/Device.
The computer should install your device this time and solve your problem with connection of the MP3 player/Device.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up.

Failed to Load Files


I was able to access the play list using Windows Media Player. I was trying to get the computer to recognize the player, and it wouldn't do it. I even downloaded the Lyra Personal Audio Player updater... that didn't work or recognize the player.
Try the programs that are on your computer for playing MP3's.
