If your PC is later than Windows 98SE the operating system does not need a driver to recognize the device. Sometimes (not sure what condition causes it, but it may be if I plug it in while the player is on) the system is looking for an MTP device instead of a USB storage device.

To fix in XP, I did the following: connect the mp3 player when it is powered off. Right click on My Computer -> properties -> hardware tab -> Device Manager . In the list I saw Audio Player with a yellow exclamation mark. Right click on the Audio Player device -> in the device properties I changed the device from audio player to USB storage device. After that, the mp3 player appeared in Windows Explorer and I could drag and drop the music onto the player. This seemed to fix it for the next time.

1. In the run command (Start menu bar) type "regedit" to bring up the Registry Editor.

2. In Registry Editor, navigate to:

3. In the details pane, double-click DevicePath.

4. Add a semi-colon to end of the existing text, and then add the path to %SystemRoot%\System32. The result should be similar to: %SystemRoot%\inf;%SystemRoot%\System32

Do not remove the %SystemRoot%\inf file path from the DevicePath registry entry.

5. Click OK to save the new value, and then close Registry Editor.

6. Delete “INFCACH.1” FROM C:\Windows and C:\Windows\Inf Directories (if it exists)

7. Ensure that there is a copy of the usbstor.inf file in C:\Windows\Inf
If there isn’t – follow the below steps:
a) From another Vista system (copy it out of another Vista system and copy it directly into the C:\Windows\inf directory


b) From the problem machine, run Command Prompt ( as administrator). From C:\ do a dir usbstor.inf /s . Wherever the file is found, go to that directory and copy all the files located in that directory to C:\Windows\inf directory

8. Open device manager, uninstall all unknown devices (right click, uninstall) so they all disappear from the list

9. Reboot the computer

10. Plug the device in (the drivers will now install and the device will be usable!)

Computer cannot detect mp3 player

If the level of infection by the virus is high, you can try repairing the OS by using the OS cd. You wont loose any installed program if repaired. But the virus will be in dead state after repairing. Then install a good anti virus and do a computer scan. This is the best way to get ride of severely infected virus. The problem you have can be because the virus may have corrupt the mp3 player's exe file

I having the same problem

Yeah, they have this annoying habit of putting the hidden/crucial files in the same folder where you add music. If you try to delete songs in bulk, you can end up accidentally deleting crucial system files. It sounds like the computer is recognizing that something is plugged in - you may want to see if there is a firmware upgrade available for that player - the upgrade might re-add those missing files. Call Nextar also to see if they have any bright ideas - if they can't fix it, and you are still in warranty, then they can replace it for you. Best of luck!
