Question about Siren Edge MP3 Player

1 Answer

Won't connect to computer

My Siren 4g was working fine. All of a sudden when I connect it to my computer (windows xp), the computer doesn't seem to recognize the device. It doesn't show up under "My Computer", although the device itself says "usb connected". I can't add or delete music. I have two identical players, and am having the same problem with both. My wife's player, connected with the same usb cable, works perfectly. My player will still play the music already downloaded to it. Neither player is anywhere near full.

    I had the same problem . You must reinstall the cd that came with the siren player . The computer will not recognize it without it. Sirens website for support is way too cheap they do not even have the install cd on the site. They have have no downloads even though they have a download column. SO DONT LOOSE YOUR DISK AND COMPLAIN TOO SIREN'S WEBSITE..

Internet connection problem My older Compaq evo tower suddenly stopped connecting to the internet tried an other wire still nothing an even older computer connects fine what could be my problem


redux 1.facts emerge.
Ethernet port dead, router ok other PC work there.
unknown card stated, of the 4 .
mint version v18. Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon
be important and even kernal version. 4.4.0-17?
HP EVO D510. year made 2002, even sold with
windows 2000, so old . 16 years old today,
(no spring chicken, and most new OS fail on all 16year old PCs, for good reasons, no new drivers)

it came new with these.
which one do you have.? PCI card.

Integrated Intel PRO/100 VM network connection
3COM 3C905C-TX network connection
Intel PRO/100 S management adapter
Broadcom NetXtreme based 10/100/1000 management Gb adapter

at the Linux command prompt
type
lspci -nn -v (enter) the 2 spaces are mandatory.

see this. in the stream of acts see ethernet pop.
(we can do this this in windows and linux now)

http://www.pcdied.com/example-nn-v.JPG

what is in that slot is anyone's guess, 100's of card there possible.
what I do is open the case side and look
read the card words there, stamped on it,
3com cards are JUNK, HP does not support it now.
(they own it and killed it, wiki HP buys 3COM 2010)
i think linux avoids it for the same reasons.
(reason HP does not make drivers for this card now nor host the old, dead as door nail it is)


what mint? V18 ,ok.
what card is there.

I'd run Ubuntu v16, with a NIC card they like.
Intel card
broadcom
Realtek
tops my list.

the Linux kernal is complied with some NIC cards.
only ,each version is different and very hard to pry this info from them.
sadly,

i see mint fails even on a new ASUS board
with Realtek RTL8111F
a vary common chip
the helper says kernal 4.5 might work.
but that is for newer chips never the old

https://www.reddit.com/r/linuxmint/comments/4f09o5/no_ethernet_with_linux_mint_173_cinnamon/


let me tell you how Kernels are built.
they delete old chips is the rule!
the newer kernals delete the chips used 10 years ago or older,
why
so the kernal is not full of 1000s of useless chip drivers,, making it huge.
reason #2, how can a new Kernal be tested on 100s more dead CHIPs, (dead means not sold, not found now) Impossible, endless task that would be and is not done, same rules MS PNP use.same reasons.


now that you know that
the learn what card you have,
you then ask the mint guys, what kernal
worked on that old card.
(if lucky some poor sod can remember that long ago and answer.

why not buy $20 PC used at GOODwill and is 2007 or newer, be really wise choice.
that is my full and long answer.
if you had told the nic card there, answers go faster.

so brave up see that CAT5 cable on rear of PC
where does it go?
inside,
if a card , what card?, only what card matters.
or buy new one that is supported, for say $10

Alarm seems to work; been checked at Toyota but they say siren is broken and say it's a common fault. But everything else seems to work - you can hear the relay clicking; lights flash.


What is actually the problem, "Actually seems to work", what doesn't work.
If Toyota are on about the 9volt battery back up siren then the main siren may be working fine, but that might not be. Most cars especially Vauxhalls have a 9volt battery back up siren, so if someone tries stealing you motor and they disconnect the battery the 9volt battery will keep the siren going off.

Everytime i try to download SKYPE on my asus Eee PC 4G operating on Windows XP it wont install. It does not recognize it as a windows program. How can i get it to work?


Try an older version and switch off auto update, the new version is too intrusive anyway, it installs it self everywhere in your computer.
I am using an older version and it works fine on my desktop and my wifes Eee PC 4G.
You can download an older version here:

Siren Edge 4 gig Boot error,


Siren's software support is bad, but you can call them: 254.224.0222

Sometimes reformatting a player can cause key system files to be lost - this particular mp3 player does not have a recovery tool or a firmware upgrade that I know of, so you can try the Windows Recovery Method: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Let me know how it turns out.
