If you have Windows Vista, the CD will not work - download a clean, updated version of the software from Sandisk's website

I cant boot to my windows 7 desktop without installation cd Problem, does anyone have this same problem or know how to fix it?


You problem is caused by the computer wanting to boot up from the CD drive.
When the computer starts up, immediatly start pressing F-8 (or what ever will take you into the Bios sometimes F-2) this will take you into the Bios of the computer.
Once you are into the Bios, this is where you will change how the computer boots up.
Right now it is booting up from the CD , so you will want to change it to boot up from the Hard drive,then click keep changes. Shut down, and restart back up again, you should be ok then
Good luck,
Hope this helps

My SMP-1GBUB DIGITAL PLAYER is not working...


Try rebooting the computer - a cold boot (complete shut off of power and restart). then see if it will mount. It may have arrived with the operating file folder missing or it may have been accidently erased by you.

This unit appears to have a single level directory which holds the boot file to start it up as well as th eaudio files. If th eboot file is missing or was erased it will not work.

However sometimes Windows will forget how to look at it sattachments especially USB items and a restart from scratch will sometimes blow out the cobwebs. A restart won' thurt. Make sure it is a complete power down and not a RESTART (warm boot) or simply re-awakening from sleep mode.

My GPX mp3 player says MTP?


MTP stands for Media Transfer Protocol. If you did not run your installation CD BEFORE plugging the mp3 player into the computer, Windows XP and higher will read it as an MTP Device. As long as the player does not cause you problems, there is nothing wrong with your computer calling it that. If this is a problem: unplug the mp3 player from the computer, uninstall all software for that player, restart computer, reinstall allsoftware from installation CD, restart computer, then plug mp3 player into computer. Good luck!

Uploading songs onto the Missil flashMP3 player


Drivers required only for Win98. Other versions on Windows have drivers installed. Plug usb cord into PC and into Missil Player. Open my computer, removable disk which is the Missil player) and file where desired music is. Drag music from storage file to "removable disk in "my computer". Treat it as a hard drive copy to, delete or format. To continue playing where you left off when restarting, hold off/pause button down for 3 seconds before shutting off.

SL 100 keeps restarting. Computer does not see it when it's hooked up.


I had to re-install Version 1.1 of My Sirius Studio from original CD that came with my Stilletto 100 as the most recent Version of My Sirius Studio did not recognize my Stilletto when I plugged the USB into my PC, when I re-installed Version 1.1 over the newer version, I shut down the Stilletto by holding down the power swith for 5 seconds then powered back up while holding down the Options and Display buttons at same time until the screen asked me to plug the USB cable into PC to recover. I did this and about 5 minutes later the the software/firmware was re-installed in my SL 100. I then plugged SL 100 into antenna and selected satellite radio, took about 1 minute to re-aquire the station ID's and Icons then I selected Sirius Hits 1 then everythings was back to normal, other than I lost all of my stored songs and recordings, but at least my SL 100 is operational again.

Connection to gogear


Sounds like the firmware is corrupt.

Try this:

Make sure you have installed Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

With the player powered off:

Press and hold VOL+ whilst connecting to the PC.

PC will show drive as Recovery Device (or similar) and device manager will start and show "Your device has an error...."

Click repair and follow the on-screen prompts.

When prompted, disconnect the player and power on.

Player will show "Loading" and then shut down.

Power on again.

Player will show "Updating" and then shut down again.

Player can now be powered up as normal.

Restart
