You accidentally deleted a key INF file on the player. Try running a Repair in the most recent version of the Philips Device Manager from Philips website. There is no guarantees that it will work, however. The newer Philips players are easy to mess up, because of the way they want you to add and delete songs.

Service installation section in this INF is invalid


If the player is showing up in your Windows' Device Manager under "portable devices" with a yellow "!":

1.) Right-click the yellow "!" and choose "update driver".
2.) When given the option to connect to Windows Update, choose "no, not this time" and click next.
3.) Choose "Install from a specific location (advanced)" and click next.
4.) Choose "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install" and click next.
5.) Click the "Have Disk" button. Browse to C:\Windows\inf and choose the file marked "wpdmtp.inf"

I can't believe the generic players have such crappy support when so many people have this problem! I think the Windows file problem might be caused by "compressing old files" when you do a disk cleanup.

I just bought the Curtis MPS515


The Curtis site says that a Firmware update is required for this product. The firware update fixes a welcome screen as well as the computer not seeing the device issue - see download site in reply pasted below...

Q: When turned on, The WELCOME screen goes on but the unit shuts down after that even with new battery.
This may be caused due to damaged firmware but can be recovered by firmware upgrade. Click on the link given below to download the Firmware folder on your computer. When done, refer to file "procedure.doc", a Word file included in the Firmware folder, and follow the procedure to upgrade the Firmware of MP3 player. Download the Firmware folder at http://www.curtisint.com/html/custservice/manuals/CUR_MPS515_FW-UPGRADE.ZIP
Q: The computer does not recognize the MP3 player.
Upgrade the Firmware of the MP3 player, as procedure explained above.

Couldn´t connect SanDisk Sansa e250 to Computer


I don't know what to tell you, but since nobody else is helping. Make sure that you've got the mp3 player plugged into a usb port.

Oh, and hopefully you're running XP or Vista. Sandisk requires it.
