Windows XP Pro is very nasty when it comes to reading mp3 players. The OS is designed for maximum secuirty, so unless you change the security settings, it treats the mp3 player as an "unauthorized user". Here is some general TS to try first:

RCA M4208

Make sure the lock switch on the back is in the unlocked position. For the player to say "Loading," especially the first time you plug it into the computer, is normal - your computer is communicating with the player, installing drivers, and trying to load the Easy Rip Software. If it stays on loading past 10 minutes, however, something is not right. If you have selected to open the device automatically using Windows Media Player, you are headed for trouble, especially if you have more music and other files on your computer than the mp3 player can handle. If you have accidentally done this, disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player.
If you have checked the above, and you are still having problems, disconnect the mp3 player from the computer. Hold in the power button for 10 seconds or more to reset the mp3 player. Try plugging the mp3 player into the computer again. If it stays on loading for more than 10 minutes, unplug the mp3 player, go into the settings menu and change the mode from MSC to MTP or vice versa. If it still misbehaves when you replug the mp3 player into the computer, download the latest Easy Rip software from RCA's website and update your player's firmware - take note of the section they have on Windows Vista if you have Windows Vista. Good luck!

Vista compatibility problems when trying to install set up program for yumi pro mp4 player v 4.05 get message blocked due to known compatibility problems


Copy the installation to your hard drive.
now take the properties and setup it for windows xp under the tab compatibility.
now run your application with administrative privilage. right click then "Run as Administrator'

Vista's Compatibility assistant is known to have a lot of bug.

if it didn.t work then
Press the keyboard combination "Windows Key +R"
you will have run dialogue box
type in "services.msc"
in the window that appears look for "Program compatibility assistant" and then disable it.
now restart your computer and try installation
it will be fine

its recommended that you switch your os to windows 7 from vista as windows 7 is more bug free and crash is unlikely to happen

My zen micro will not work on windows 11 media player


Try the recovery tool from here (this is relevant to your recovery mode question also), but not all mp3 players will work with Windows Media Player 11 - causes a DB corruption - roll back to Windows Media Player 10 if this is the case:

Cannot instal RCA Opal m4002


Get an updated version of the software from RCA's website. Windows XP Pro and Mp3 players in general don't mix well - on a networked business system, Mp3 players are seen almost like hostile, foreign antibodies.

Installation


If you have a genuine version of Windows with a licence key, then download and install XP Service Pack 2 from the Microsoft website. You can also request a CD copy.

If you do not have a genuine copy with a licence key, then you will not be able to re-activate Windows XP once Sevice Pack 2 has installed.

Problem with Zen nano


· 1. remove all creative software from your pc (do this from start menu/settings/control panel/add or remove programs)
2. Uninstall Windows Media Player 11 and Windows Media Player 11 runtime. This will rollback the pc to an earlier version of WMP.
3. Download the latest version of the zen driver from this location:
http://us.creative.com/support/downl...ame=Windows+XP
4. Make sure the zen is not connected to the pc and install run the exe file to install the software on your pc. at some point, the install will tell you that the unit is not connected. Connect the unit to proceed. it will also notify you that you are replacing an existing software, or something to that effect. I accepted or said OK to this popup. Once the firmware is installed, my started to work fine. You can now reinstall WMP from microsoft website. Hope this works for you.

you might want to verify that your new player has the latest firmware available, as this might address the unresponsive-button issue you're having. Firmware updates are surprisingly easy - you just download the firmware file from Creative's website, plug in your player, and double-click the downloaded file. It's that easy.

All else failes download the recovery tool from creatives website.

Trouble Installing MP3 player.


Are you using a USB1 or a USB2 connection for the device. I found that on my older computer which still utilizes USB1 I had the same problem but on my newer PC utilizing USB2 it was recognized correctly and I had access to all the folders. Both PCs run XP.
