My player charges but isn't being detected in order to add music
I plug into the USB and my player charges but when I go to the the Windows Media Player and try to Sync to add music it says, "please connect player". That seems odd to me that it is actually charging but it's not being detected like it was never connected.
Re: My player charges but isn't being detected in order...
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.

Yes the chord is the charging cable and the download/upload cable.
You will plug it into the usb port on your computer for charging.
You will need Windows Media Player installed in your computer ...after it is installed add your songs to Windows Media Player, then plug your Mp3 player in with Windowns Media Player running, your mp3 player will be recognized and then you can add the songs you added to Windows Media Player.

Hi dee langton..
Try this method...
********************* Downloading Music to your MP3 Player
1...You must download and install Windows Media Player 11 on your computer. NOTE...Some older MP3 players will not work with Windows Media Player 11 or Windows 7 with Windows Media Player 11. If this happens to you, then you will have to uninstall Windows Media Player 11 and install Windows Media Player 10. 2...After you have downloaded and installed Media Player on your computer. 3...Open Media Player on your computer. 4...Install all your music into Media Player that you want to install on your MP3 player. 5...Plug in your MP3 player to the computer using your Data/Sync cord, be sure that Windows Media Player is on. 6...Media player should recognize the MP3 player and sync with it. 7...After it is sync'ed with the computer,you can add the music you have installed into Windows Media Player to your MP3 Player. Please take time to rate me thumbs up.
It is possible that the problem is it is either you are putting the song in an incorrect folder or your are suppose to use a program to sync music in the MP3 player for it to detect the audio or songs properly.
just like iTunes on an iPod if iTunes is not used then the audio can be put in the folder of the MP3 player/iPod but will not be detected when the MP3 player is used to play the song/music, Same goes for you Samsung MP3 Player I suggest you check for an application or program that you may need to use in order to get the Audio/Song/Music detect when putting them in the Samsung MP3 Player.
I hope this helps.
Have a nice day,
Assuming the player is charged. (For charging always connect directly to the computer, not through a reader or hub).
When buttons on the player do not react, reset the player:
Disconnect the player from the computer.
See that the HOLD button is not engaged.
Gently push the RESET button on the rear side: use a narrow pointed
object, like a paperclip.
Did synchronization of the songs in Windows Media Player fail ?
For transferring songs, check in Windows Media Player:
1. The player is detected in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.
2. Setup the Library / Add to Library: add the location of songs you want to transfer in the library.
3. Create Playlist; give the list a name and put songs in a playlist
4. Sync Playlist: transfer the list of songs onto the player and wait for the message until you're allowed to disconnect.
Your USB port might not be 2.0. Plug one side of your USB cord into the back of the computer & with the other side you plug it into your Zen. Run windows media player (it should be windows media 11. If not,upgrade) and your Zen should be detected
I used Windows Media Player 11 to move music to my Fuze.
Plug your Fuze into an USB port on your computer using the provided adapter cord. Windows will detect the Fuze and install it if need be.
Once Windows has done its thing, open WMP11 and select the "Sync" tab.
You can now drag and drop your music from your Library on the left to your Sync Playlist on the right.
Once you've moved your selections, click on the "Start Sync" button at the bottom of the right side.
The music will be uploaded to your Fuze.
You can have WMP11 detect your music and put it into your Library by pressing the F3 key. Press F3, navigate to your music folder with the Add button, and then press OK. You can remove folders from the list in the same manner.
unplug the power cable going into the power supply. wait for a while and plug it back
install software with updated drivers. check to make sure you have the most recent motherboard drivers.download if necessary.plenty of sites available
update your windows media player
get Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2 if possible
goto Start Menu->Control Panel->System and then clicking the Hardware tab and going to Device Manager. in Device Manager you could delete all entries with "USB" in the name and reboot. let Windows redetect the USB devices. uninstall your usb drivers and download the latest ones available and reinstall your usb drivers.
You probably switched it to MSC mode.
If you go to Settings->USB and select Auto-Detect it switches it MTP (media transfer protocol?).
The player understands both transfers, but they're invisible to one another.
