It isn’t your computer: this camera (although it is otherwise great) has serious interface issues with computers. Mine is driving me crazy and I am in South America, so all I can do is rely on these tech forums to try to get some clues. When I connect my camera to my computer, sometimes the computer sees it and it transfer files and edits just fine. Other times it sees and transfers, but then the software wont edit (says there is an error). Other times it sees it but the computer says it doesn’t recognize the device, and the software therefore wont run to upload the files. However, if I leave it plugged in long enough, *sometimes* like an hour later, it just all of a sudden recognizes it – but sometimes it never does, all day long. Sometimes I plug it in and it doesn’t show up on any drive at all, even if I change it from one USB port to another. There is a newer laptop here running Vista that never once has been able to see the camera, and an older one running XP that sees it every single time, but suffers a power surge because it is too old and tells me to unplug the device and reset the port and not to use it there again. When I can get my computer to recognize it, I immediately run the upgrade available on the site http://www.mysmallwonder.com/support/downloads.aspx and that usually fixes the problem for a few days – the computer can see the camera and recognize it for a few days – until it cant again! (Make sure to follow the instructions all the way through, which include disconnecting the camera from the computer and pressing the delete button on the camera after the download, and then turning the camera on again to finish the process.) The upgrade usually also fixes the software glitches (for when the computer recognizes it and I can upload videos, but not edit them, but today for example, the upgrade hasn’t fixed the glitches and I cannot edit at all. I am going to try deleting the RCA memory manager program and uploading again through the camera. One big problem I have is that I don’t have the original disk with me, so when the software goes psycho I have to download the program through the online upgrade that only will work when it interfaces with the plugged in camera – which depending on the day, may or may not be recognized by my computer, or even APPEAR on any drive. That’s where I am. Please let me know if anyone knows how to solve this.

My computer does not reconize my mp3 player after power failure on computer. the mp3 player froze up on updateing library.


Hello and thatnx for using Fixya !
The issue is with the player ...if the power went off during the update and the process was not completed ..this is the issue you have to deal with ...The procedure is to reset the mp3 player back to the factory settings using the reset button ...or by removing the power source...Most of them have a hidden button in a hole ..somewhere on a side...and needs to be pressed with a sharp object in order to reset itself ..Aftyer that reinstall the driver software if it has something like that ..and try again ...Usually it should be seen after this operation ...but in case it still makes troubles...just reinstall the computer too...

My Flipshare video camera will not turn on. When I try to power it up on my computer or with the power cord, nothing happens. No light goes on, no nothing. Pleas help!


Hi d_cockerham,

You should try resetting your Ultra HD Flip Camcorder. Unfortunaately the support knowledgebase does not list the proceedure but I managed to get an email from them on how to proceed.

The steps to reset/resolve an issue where your UltraHD will NOT turn "On" is as follows:
  1. Remove the battery pack from the camcorder.
  2. Connect the camcorder to a powered USB port on your computer.
  3. When the "Connected" indicator comes on, insert the battery pack into the camcorder.
  4. Safe eject your camcorder from your computer.
  5. Reconnect your camcorder to your computer.
  6. The battery pack should now begin to charge within the camcorder
Hope this helps anyone else who encountered similar problems.

Coby MP-610 MP3 Player froze up wont turn off or connect to my computer


If it just froze up, there's a reset button at the back/bottom, I used a staple if a paperclip isnt available. The reset button did nothing to solve my problem of only getting a screen showing "COBY" but maybe it'll help you.

My ipod nano is freezing up and as a result my computer wont reconize it, wont play any music , and wont turn off.


Reset the thing by holding the center button and menu button at the same time until the apple logo appears.  Then re-sync with computer and look for ipod firmware updates.  If that don't work, then your ipod is fu.k.d up in which you should take it back to the Apple store and get the thing exchanged if your under your year warranty.

It wont Work :(


I would try to get into the recovery menu and see if you can run a clean up first (a clean up will not erase anything on the player).
To access the recovery menu
1. Detach the Zen player from your PC , and ensure that the Zen Sleek is turned off.
2. Connect the power supply to the player.
3. Hold down the Play/Pause button while inserting a paper clip into the Reset hole underneath your player, beside the data/power connector. Keep on holding the Play/Pause button while you release the Reset button. The Rescue Mode screen will then appear.
4. After the recovery mode has started, release the Play/Pause button.

Again if you can get into this menu, try a clean up first to see if that resolves the problem. Clean up should be the first option in the menu.

USB Unplug Crash!(for a Flip Video Camcorder Mono HD)


this happened to me a few days ago, what you have to do is hold down the off button for 20 seconds. This technique is called hard reset, so it should work if you do that. :)

Frozen go gear sa9200/17


Use a small papaerclip, pin, or other device and insert it into the reset hole until the GoGear shuts off. You may have to download the more recent version of the software for the device at www.usasupport.philips.com even after doing the reset.
