Question about Generic Memory MP3 Player

Mp3 player won't start

My computer won't read the mp3 player when plugged into the usb cable. The mp3 player says "starting" on it but stays in that mode. My other MP3 player which is the same generic brand reads fine with the usb cable. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. The player is only 1 month old. Thank You.

You need to check your MP3 Player on another PC. If it still have the problem then you must return it for a Firmware Update. When any kind of USB Devices plugged and couldn't continue the launch (boot) step. Then you have to be sure that the MP3 Player (Or USB Device): 1) Has a corrupted component. 2) Needs Firmware update (Know as Device BIOS Update).

    I prefer that you check it on a pc with XP installed.

    Drivers on Windows 98 are frustrating to install.

Won't charge when plugged in to USB

Often the problem is the USB cable or the plug.

Make sure the USB cable is plugged in firmly, all the way on both ends. If it still does not charge, try using a different USB port on the computer or laptop. If that fails to solve the problem then get a new USB cable.

If none of the above solves your problem then your device is defective.

    My sanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player will not charge anymore. At least not on the computer I'm on. I have had it hooked up to charge for 2 days now and nothing. Why is this and how can I charge it?

    This is direct from the sansa FAQs at 02. Why won’t my Sansa Clip charge when I connect it to my computer? USB Cable
    Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable.

    Computer in Hibernation mode
    Make sure that the computer isn’t entering hibernate or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be on in order to charge your player.

    USB Port 2.0
    Make sure your player is connected USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).

    USB Port location
    Try plugging in different USB port (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); sometimes the front USB ports have problem charging up the device.

    Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.

    Latest firmware
    Make sure to update firmware by downloading and installing the Sansa Firmware Updater.

    I hope this helps, and don't forget to rate the answer.

    There might be a problem with your USB cable, such as a broken wire, and not the MP3 player itself.
