Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged.
Try a different usb port.
If that fails:
Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns 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. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

Hi My player is Creative ZEN MOZAIC EZ 100 - 4GB It is not able to recharge and when connects to PC there appears scaning Disk... and nothing else happends long time.


I've had similar issues with the Zen Microphoto, usually the case is a defective cable. Even though the PC sees the device that does not mean that the cable is connecting properly. Try using a different mini USB 2.0 cable. That fixed all of my issues with my Zen Microphoto's connection and inability to charge.

My sansa m230 driver mp3 player is not detected as removalble disk i mean as a flash drive on my laptop how can i fix this issue


Hello,

When you're able to change USB mode in the display:
- From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB
- Select in "Auto Detect", "MTP" or "MSC": choose MSC for viewing the player as a removable disk.
When you cannot select MSC mode in the player's menu, force MSC mode with the player switches/buttons:
1. Turn device OFF.
2. Facing the hold switch: slide it to the right so an orange color would show, putting the device on Hold.
3. Connect the device to the PC with the provided USB cable.

note
In MSC mode: Before disconnecting the USB cable always go through the safely remove hardware icon in the lower screen of your computer on the right. Left click the icon to see all removable disks and left click on the removable disk drive letter of the player to disconnect: after the message you can take out the USB cable.

Connect to pc and use device manager


You need to get an USB cable and connect to PC.

On PC , after you wait a bit, you get a small message near the clock, and sometimes also a window popping up, telling you that the new disk had been detected.

Depending on windows settings you may also get a menu with several option, the last one will be open folder to view files.
That opens straight the mp3 folder.

If that does not happen go into My computer folder or Computer on Vista, and look for a new disk.
There you will find the new disk that is your MP3 player.

Once you have the folder with your disk opened, open the folder where you stored MP3 on your computer, and copy them into the MP3 disk.

If there is an error message or the computer does not see the disk then there is a problem, in that case let me know.

Gmini hard disk reading problems


My Gmini XS202s did this twice both time cause the battery went flat while moving files across (I should always charge device while connecting to PC)

First time I reformatted device as FAT32 using fdisk (Windows formatting tool should do same)

Then downloaded latest AOS and copied to root directory. [get AOS from http://www.archos.com/support/support_tech/updates.html?country=gb&lang=en]

second time I ran mkdosfs /media/disk (disk was mount point for gmini). This seemed to fix the device and I lost about 20 files. but better than reformat.

My computer wont recognize my mp3


I know this is only part of the solution:
- turn off your sansa clip
- put the slide button on hold
- press the centered button while connecting the sansa clip to your pc
the sansa clip will now be visible as a removable disk under 'my computer' :-)

I don't yet know how to proceed from here on

Problem ! Please Connect to Computer


This is usually caused by a problem with the hard disk. This is signified by a repeating sound from the hard disk inside the player.

Occassionally it can be fixed by tapping the player on a table when it is trying to start up.

WARNING

THIS CAN ALSO CAUSE FURTHER DAMAGE TO THE HARD DISK so only try as a last resort.
