Maxx digital MP4 player

My MP4 player is malfunctioning. None of my computers will recognize it. When I plug it in, my computer tells me unknown device malfunctioning. I bought 4 of them (one for each kid for Christmas) and two of them don't work. What can i do? Not sure I can get my money back.

First of all, if you are attempting to plug this device in to the frontusb port or to a usb hub, try plugging it directly in to one of theback usb plugs of your computer as this is going to be a true "usb 2.0"port. That is, of course, if your motherboard suports USB 2.0. As withmost new devices, they are all usb 2.0 and only some will be usb 1.1(the older version) compatible. As well, some usb players will havesoftware that is not necessarily required to "see the unit" on theother hand, some do have device drivers that are required (as in thecase of the toshiba and creative units), in order to utilize the builtin software functions.

One other thing you can check for is the device manager (right click onMY COMPUTER and select PROPERTIES then click on HARDWARE tab andfinally DEVICE MANAGER) Here you should see no "yellow" exclammationpoints which would be telling you of a device conflict. If youcurrently have your unit plugged in, you may notice the "unknowndevice" which would be your unit. By clicking on any item that has theexclamation and REMOVING it. Removing all devices with conflicts andthen clicking on REFRESH (search for new devices) it should once againattempt to install the device. If you are still having troubles, Iwould be visiting the manufacturers website and reading any FREQUENTYASKED QUESTIONS (faq's) regarding the device as well there are quiteoften updated device drivers available from the site in which you mayor may not require.

How do I download music onto my MP4 player please?


You should have received a data/charging cable with it.
Plug it in to a USB port on your computer.
The computer should recognize it as an external data device like a thumb drive, and you can copy music to it.

The computer may need a driver to tell it what it's looking at, and if one is required it is usually provided on a CD that came with the player.

Will not show up on comp. or charge


Most likely the device has had damage done to it either from being dropped, not being ejected properly from the computer or liquid damage. It's corrupt from what you've explained and now it not turning on tells me that it's pretty much gone. I advise looking into getting a new MP3 player.

Problems with computer connection


There's many reason that explain why a usb device can't be recognized by a computer, such as:

If it use to be recognized & function:
- Try the device on other computer, to check if it is ok.
- Try the computer with other device.
- Some computer virus can damage the function of usb device, if it is, try to clean up your computer and usb device.
- If you ever plug other similar device to the computer, and the device failed to be installed, then the computer will mark all similar device as unknown. Try to reinstall the driver, but remove the unknown mark first (plug the device, right click on my computer, properties, device manager, then find device with question mark or X mark, then uninstall it)

If it has never work with the computer before:
- Try other driver, contact the device vendor, or find in internet
