Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
Whilst copying audio files onto the player via the USB it seems like some files from the player have been deleted as a result it does not recognise the players drive. Thus it is not possible to copy any songs across or play anything that exists on it.
Managed to fix it !
Windows XP or any other version had an issue in completely recognising the media player.
Every time I would plug in the MP3 players, Windows would show that a new hardware has been plugged in and try to set-up the drivers. It would also breifly recognise it as being a music player and assign drive E: and F: to it. However every-time I would try and select the E: or the F: drive to inspect its contents Explorer would hang-up and crash.
So I re-did this in MS Dos prompt mode. i.e. for thos who are not familiar do the following :
ClicK Start - Run - and type cmd to bring up the command prompt
then type cd\
and go to the root C:
Plug in the MP3 player and wait for the detection. Once detected on the C:\ prompt
Type Format E:\
Be Very Very Careful that you don't type ***** Format C: ***** otherwise that would be the end of your hard drive and all the data :-)
After the E:/ has finished formatting the control should return back to the C:\ prompt from where you would be able to type E:/ and go the E: drive
Unplug and plug the mp3 player again and now windows should be able to detect the player properly and not hang-up.
You may have just lost all the songs on the mp3 player but now the player is back into life. So start copying your songs and enjoy your player !
