SOURCE: Sony Walkman NWZ-S615F problem detecting and syncronizing

I had the same problem. One day my Mp3 started acting weird and said it was not recognizing the files and that i needed to re download them. Try plugging it up to your computer while its charging and hit the power off. Then reset your mp3 with the button at the bottom and it should recognize it.

SOURCE: Computer can't detect my psp

If you know someone who has a USB data cable for PSP, please borrow and test it with your PSP. USB cables has 4 wires, 2 for power (+5V and GRD) and 2 for data (+ and -). With PSP, the power and data wires are separated and has different input on the PSP, if 1 of the data wires is damaged, it will look like the cable is ok but it couldn't transmit and receive data properly. In your case, I think your PSP is can transmit but couldn't receive a reply from your PC.

Let me know if the borrowed PSP USB cable don't work.

SOURCE: Zune software won't recognize Zune when plugged in

Go to Device Manager by right-clicking on My Computer > Properties. Depending on what version of Windows you are using you will see Device Manager somewhere (might have to switch tabs).

With your Zune plugged in, you should see it under Portable Devices or Disk Drives or something similar (look under anything that could describe the Zune).

Next there are a few things you can try:

1) If the Zune is not installed (has a yellow ! next to it), right click and update driver, then tell it you want to specify where to look, and look in Program Files\Zune\Drivers\Zune\ . The file Zune.inf should be in there, that's the Zune driver.

2) If the Zune is installed, right click and select uninstall, then reinstall the driver I specified in step 1.

That should work, if it doesn't right click on the Zune in Device Manager, go to Properties and tell us if there are any error codes or if it says the device is working properly.

Dont know how to set up zune with laptop


Just download the software from zune.net and then connect your Zune HD to your laptop with the USB cable and you can then add all of your media to the device. In order to wirelessly sync your device you'll need to first connect it with the cable and setup the wireless sync settings. After that you don't need to use the cable to connect your Zune to your laptop.

Windows media player says no device connected


Windows Media Player has a limit of 3 portable devices that can be detected at any one time. I would uninstall every mp3 player's software that is installed on that machine and try again.

Use Windows Media Player

The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/windowsmediaplayer/wmp10/harrison_wmp10.mspx

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/mediaadvice/0085.mspx#EDF

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Click on the icon of your Mp3 player on the left-hand side of the Library

4. Click on the Songs, Tracks, or other Music Folder

5. Find a song or songs that you want to delete

6. Left-click the song once to highlight it

Device firmware


http://www.zune.net/en-us/support/usersguide/default.htm

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Can the Zune sync with Windows Media Player?


There is a way and none of your solutions work. There is a software you can download and use as a Hack but the problem is that is does not work with Windows XP/Vista/7...Windows Media Player does not recognize the Zune as a devioce or a player, just like Windows will not recognize it as a storage drive in Windows Explorer. You would figure with Zune being a Microsoft Product, that it would work well with other MS products but they screwed up somewhere and did not get the memo that Zune is a MS product

Zune will not sync


Okay... what you do is Hold your zune in you right hand.. open the toilet bowl with your left.. put the zune in the toilet... and then flush it... or if you have not gotten a zune... just throw the $200+ in the toilet instead.. Because i have the same exact problem as these guys and none of their solutions have worked..
