You don't have enough room on your drive to do this. I had the same problem. I took all my router ports off and connected just my creative vision player only and it worked. Computer system was over loaded.

Sony walkman nwz-b135 when i connect it to my laptop it will add music etc, but will not charge thanx


Hi,

I'm sorry to know that the Walkman player is not getting charged. I'll be glad to assist you with this. Please perform the following steps:
If the New Hardware Wizard appears and is prompting for a location of the driver, point to the following directory: C:/WINDOWS/INF .
To function properly, your Walkman player must be recognized by your computer as a Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) device. If the portable player was connected to the computer before the Windows Media Player version 10 or later was installed, it will be recognized as a Mass Storage Class (MSC) device and not function properly. In that case, a different procedure is available to correct this issue.
For some models, when you use the portable player for the first time, if you have not used it for a long time, or the battery is depleted, it may take up to 5 minutes for it to be recognized or start charging. On models with a display, the display will remain blank. If it the portable player is not recognized or does not begin to charge after waiting 5 minutes, reset the player by pressing the reset button.
If this is not the first time using your player and it was working properly at one time with no major changes performed (such as restoring the operating system or replacing a hard drive), follow the procedure below:
Connect the portable player to the computer using the supplied USB cable.
Disconnect the USB cable from the portable player and then reconnect.
Check the connection status again.
Disconnect the USB cable from the computer and then reconnect.
Check the connection status again.
Check for available space on the player using Windows Media Player or My Computer .
Restart the computer.
Check the connection status again.
Check that the USB cable is firmly connected to both the computer and the player.
Check the connection status again.
If the player is connected to a USB hub, disconnect it and connect it directly to the computer with a dedicated USB cable.
Check the connection status again.
If the player is still not recognized by the computer, disconnect all devices connected to the computer with a USB connection and restart the computer.
After the computer restarts, connect only the Walkman player and test the connection again.
If the player is still not recognized by the computer, try a different USB port.
Check the connection status again.
Under the Common settings menu of the player, format the player using the built-in Format utility.
Check the connection status again.
Verify the current Operating System. If it is an upgraded operating system, contact the computer manufacturer for updated drivers for their upgraded operating system.
If you are running the Windows XP operating system, be sure you are running Service Pack 2 (SP2) or later.
If you did not have the latest service pack, test the connection status again after it has been installed.
If you are still unable to transfer music to your player and have not yet uninstalled and reinstalled the driver follow the procedure to confirm that the player is recognized by the computer as an MTP device.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

How to put msic on it


Hi,
Install the Windows driver included in the product package before connecting your Sylvania MP3 player. Insert the included driver CD into your CD-ROM drive and run the setup file if it does not load automatically. This driver makes sure your computer can recognize and operate the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 2 Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 3 Insert the other end of the same USB cable into the USB port on the computer.
  • 4 Wait for the computer to recognize the Sylvania MP3 player as a connected device. Open your file manager or browser to locate the Sylvania MP3 player as a drive or connected device if your computer does not prompt you automatically.
  • 5 Open the file folder containing the MP3 or WMA digital music files you wish to download to your Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 6 Drag and drop the file or folder icons of your desired digital music onto the Sylvania MP3 player device icon. Drag and drop the digital music into open folders within the Sylvania MP3 player device icon as well.

    My RIO Cali is not recognized by Rio Software or Media Player since migration to new computer and Windows 7 OS. I tried finding a driver but have been unsuccessful in updating. Any solutions to make it...


    I found myself in the same situation and ended up by downloading the Oracle VM Virtual box (http://www.virtualbox.org/). Installed a virtual copy of Windows Xp and now I'm able to use the indestructible Rio Cali... It only detects my 2gb card as 1 though...

    INITIALIZING


    As long as the computer enumerates the drive (you can see it in My Computer as a drive letter) then there is likely an issue with the firmware. Download the firmware install from the RCA website: http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2558

    Follow the on-screen instructions to perform the install.
    Be sure to back up any important media before performing this install.

    If your computer does not recognize it, press and hold the play button while connecting the device for upwards of 30 seconds. If that does not work then it is likely the player is unrecoverable.

    Installation problem


    Your computer has to recognize MTP. If you plug it into a Windows Vista computer, it will recognize your device. There are steps you can perform for a Windows XP computer to recognize the device without software. Do a search for MTP and Windows XP for those directions. It starts with Adding New Hardware etc...

    Frozen MP3 Player


    There's a reset hole by the side of the player. Try reseting it. It can freeze sometimes, and fix itself after a while. no apparent reason. reset, run the battery down and recharge. Hope it helps. this is from the creative site: The recovery mode consists of these four operations. * Clean Up: It is the least destructive operation. It scans a player's hard disk and removes any invalid links from the music library. It does not affect music files themselves. It is recommended that you perform "Clean Up" first before formatting or reloading the player's firmware. It is recommended that you clean up regularly if you frequently transfer files between a PC and your player. * Format All: It is the same as a Windows format performed in a PC, and consequently all contents will be lost after a format. * Reload Firmware: Reloads the player's firmware (Operating System). It will also format the player. Note : It requires the player be connected to a PC that meets the player's minimum system requirement. Select this option ONLY if you have access to a PC and you have downloaded the necessary firmware to install. * Reboot: Reboots the player. You can reboot the player after performing a clean-up or format, or reboot it without performing neither of them. It is recommended that you try these operations in the following sequence: reboot the player; clean up and reboot; format and reboot; and finally, reload the player's firmware. If your player seems to stuck in the recovery (rescue) mode, you can try the "reboot" operation first, and format the player if necessary. If it fails to reboot, you will need to connect the player to a PC, and reinstall its firmware. For a detailed instructions on how to install a player's firmware, please refer to Updating the firmware on a Creative MP3 player, or refer to the Web Release note of the firmware download. Unlike other hard disk based players, Zen Neeon does not have a rescue mode. Though there is a Player Recovery Mode , it is for use when updating its firmware only. 1. Detach your player from your PC , and ensure that it is turned off. 2. Close all active applications (for example, Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer, or Windows Media Player etc), as well as background applications such as Norton anti-virus applications. 3. Download the latest device driver if you have not installed any drivers for your player. The file name is MStorage_PCDRV_LB_1_07_00_250.exe. 4. Double click on the file MStorage_PCDRV_LB_1_07_00_250 to install it. Follow the instructions on the screen. 5. Hold down the Play/Pause button while connecting the player to a PC's USB port. 6. When the Creative logo appears on its screen, release the Play/Pause button. The player is now in Player Recovery Mode.
