Question about Kingston Kpex100 Digital Media Player

Kingston K-PEX 100 2GB not recognized by computer! HELP!

My computer will not recognize my K-PEX. Normally, when I plug the USB to the computer, the device says "Charging... Disconnect and reconnect for USB mode." When I do this the device briefly shuts off and turns back on with along with the previous statement. I'll just keep plugging and unplugging, and I'll still get the same result. If I'm lucky, the device will occasionally say "USB connected" but my computer still will not recognize it. The funny thing is that I was able to put music on before but now it won't.

Any ideas?

P.S. I've also tried the whole "install new hardware" tip and no go. Something about "see code 10". PLEASE, HELP ME!

Hi yea i had the same problem and i realised this was because i plugged it into a USB hub. if u do the same try plugging directly into the port on the system unit. If not u may not have the required drivers for this device.

There's a small hole where you can insert a needle size pin or any thing that will fit there to reset it. you can try this first.

I can't get my computer to recognize the Coby MP610-4G when I plug it in. Therefore, I can't transfer any music to it through windows media.


Does your Coby MP610 act normally, other than your computer won't recognize it? Have you tried plugging it in to a different USB port on the same computer, or into a different computer?

I use a different MP3 player myself, but I have revived it and my Sony-Ericsson cell phone by upgrading their firmware. Neither device was being recognized by the computer until I reflashed the firmware, and in both cases reflashing fixed them.

If you want to try reflashing your Copy MP610, I just posted the steps as a Tip on the Fixya website.

I hope that helps.

My computer wont detect the mp3 and connect


Is the player working normally otherwise?

If so, then try the player in a different USB port on your computer. When plugged in, the display of the Pearl should say that it is connected to a USB device and it will show up automatically as a removable external drive in your windows explorer.

If not, then upgrade the firmware in the unit and the computer will recognize it again. Download the firmware upgradefrom http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1, and follow all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you start the program:

start the program,
remove the battery,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button the the term "initalizing" replaces "searching",
check the box that says "format data" (you can try it first without this checked, it may work and will save your music),
click the start button to replace the firmware.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again.

RCA pearl 1602-A won't register when plugged into USB port.


When my computer wouldn't recognize my Pearl, these are the steps I followed after downloading the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1

remove the battery,
start the program,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button when the term "initializing" replaces "searching",
click the start button to replace the firmware.

You might want to try leaving the "format data" box unchecked the first time. If that doesn't work and allow you to backup your music, bite the bullet and format the data area.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again. It also fixed my aac-error problem.

Computer stopped recognizing USB cord from Zen sleek photo


The first problem is probably a software incompatibility between Creative's software and Windows Media Player version 11. The second problem is possibly a need to replace the battery. 3rd party batteries are about 20 dollars now.

Computer doesn't recognize unit when connected


Hi All,
I had the same problem and was going crazy trying to figure this out, but I found that I had installed the GPX mw3816 on my bottom USB port and was trying to plug it into the port above it, because I had plugged another unit into the bottom port, but I switched the ports and it immediately installed. This is another reason, I am thinking of dumping windows and moving to a MAC. Peace!
