take your mp3 off the usb and go into the settings, you should find settings for the usb connection , ,, one of the options should be highlighted , chose the other one and try again,,,, your mp3 was set to charge only just pick the other setting and it should work. that happened to me once

Media Manager is just the software that allows you to sync, the MP3 player should still show up as a Removable Disk drive under 'My Computer'. If not, check your connections, something should also appear on the MP3 player screen when connected to the computer.

well it should show up under my computer as a lettered drive. But if you goto this link http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=NWZS618F&LOC=3 and select your operating system you can find a firmware update. As well as find software to use. If you update your firmware you should be able to fix this problem from happening in the future. If you are unable to update the firmware due to it still not showing up on the computer.
you may have to reset it to factory setting. this problem was possibly caused if you formatted the device on the computer and deleted its usb PNP settings. Instead of formatting it through the device.
to reset the device back to factory settings you.. 1. press and hold the back/home button in the pause mode until the home menu appears. 2. press the directional buttons to select the settings icon (looks like a suitcase) then press the play/pause button to confirm. 3.press the directional buttons to select the "common settings" and then press the play/pause button to confirm (the list of common settings options will appear) 4. press the directional button to select "reset all settings" and then press play/pause button to confirm.
(the confirmation screen to set back to the factory settings will appear). 5. press the directional button to select "yes" and then press the play/pause button to confirm. ("restored factory settings" will appear)
for reference you can find a copy of the user manual by clicking here.
If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the comment 4 thumbs up. thanks and have a great day.

My computer doesn't recognize my gpx ml648 mp3 player when it is plugged in.. why not?


I am going to type up what the owners manual says for this:
1. Try running Windows Update to see if there are any Service Packs they have available. You can do this by going to www.windowsupdate.com

2. Scan for hardware changes. To do so, open Device Manager. This can be found by right clicking on My Computer. Choose Properties from the menu that appears, In this System Properties menu, click on the Hardware tab. From the Hardware tab, click on Device Manager. Within Device Manager, there should be a listing for Portable Devices. If there isn't a listing for Portable Devices or the listing shown is highlighted with a question mark, right click on Universal Serial Bus Controllers and select Scan for hardware changes.
3. If no devices connected to a USB port can be recognized, try connecting the mp3 player to a different USB port.

Also, if you are using a USB extention cord - stop. make sure the cord from your player is directly connected to your computer.

Problem installing driver


I first found that when I plugged my player into my computer it registered it as a MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) device and in turn never showed up as a storage device on my computer. I fixed this by going into my Control Panel -> System Icon -> Hardware Tab -> Device Manager button. Clicking on the “System Devices” tab should have “Walkman” or MTP device. Right click on it and go to properties, now before doing anything it should say “Location — —— Location 0 (Walkman)” if not try unplugging the walkman and see if the MTP device you’re looking at is removed from the list, just to make sure it’s the right device we’re looking for.
If you’ve confirmed it’s the Walkman, click on the “Driver tab” and click on “Update Driver…”. Then click on the “Install from a list or a specific location (Advanced)” option and click “Next”. Now select the “Don’t search. I will choose the driver to install.” and click next. It should now bring up 2 driver choices, one being “MTP Device” and the other “USB Mass Storage Device”. Select the USB option and select next, it will then install your walkman as a USB storage device and after that’s done. It should be a matter of unplugging and plugging the Walkman back in and it should show up on your storage options in “My Computer”"

Re: Computer recognizing USB connection to dell dj


Go into your Start Menu and right click on My Computer and choose "Properties" from the menu. Click on the Hardware tab on the new window that opened. Select Device Manager. Check to see if your device is recognized under Windows Portable Devices. If your device is not recognized here,what i would recommend you to do is to uinstall the device.

To uninstall the devid just right click on the device name and hit uninstall...the device usually listed under disk drives, portable devices and univeral serial bus controllers.. Once you uninstall the device..you will need to make sure what mode you have the device...turn the device on and click under setting and look for usb mode...then you want to make sure its under MTP mode or Auto....then what you will want to do is to plug the device on that back of the computer not the front...then windows should recognize it...if that doesnt do it you will need to contact the manufacturer of the device.
3. Open Windows Media Player and go to the Sync section. It should be recognized on the right-hand side. If it is not, or if your device has a drive letter after its name (for example F :), your device is not being properly recognized by the computer and you will have to contact the manufacturer of the device.
4. If it is seen in Windows Media Player then disconnect the Device and close all programs.
Next we are going to make sure that Windows Media Player is not storing unnecessary information about your device:

1. Open Windows Media Player.
2. Maximize the program and choose the Tools > Options menu.
3. Click on the Privacy Tab in the open window and choose "Clear Caches" and "Clear History".
4. Re-connect your device and choose "Manual" and "Permanent" on the window that opens.
5. Close Windows Media Player.

I hope that help...
Thank you

My pc wont accept my mymusix player


I solved this problem by:

1) First, uninstalling the device using the Device Manager. (I.e., control panel --> System icon --> Hardware tab --> Device Manager button. The device is located under Portable Devices. For me it had a name like MTP Device -- I don't recall the exact name. Right click on the device and select Uninstall from the pop-up menu.)

2) Second, I disconnected the player physically from the PC.

3) Third, I followed the PD-6070 FAQ page instructions (found at http://www.mymusix.com/) entitled Q: How to recover my player's firmware?

The PD-6070 player is now detected properly and my daughter is very happy!

Wont load songs


What you have to do is this: 1) The HDD Detection tool Connect the device to the PC, load up Musicmatch. On the left click "Portable Device" tab, wait for the PC to show your device. The device should show as "Philips GoGear" if it's showing as "Philips Nike" go to "Tools" on the right, click "Settings" click drop-down menu & choose GoGear. You need to do this everytime you transfer files. If that doesn't work, you need to do this: 2) Manual Re-Install You can re-install the player manually by doing this : - connect the player to your pc by USB cable - uninstall all Installed software for the player - remove device from Windows Device Manager : - Desktop - right click on "My Computer" - select Properties from the menu a new windows appears: System Properties - click on the tab "Hardware" - click on "Device Manager" a new window appears" The Device Manager navigate to the player (should be shown as Philips Nike) at the USB Devices - right click on the player - select "un-install" from the menu - Windows will unsinstall the device - If the player is not listed, the device has been deleted Now to edit the Windows Registry: (Note: Mistakes cannot be un-done so be VERY careful) 1. Disconnect all usb devices. 2. Go to the registry (Start -> Run -> type "regedit") 3. Make a backup of the registry -click "file" -click "export" -Search/Create a logical location ("C:\REGBACKUP" for example) -choose a filename ("registry backup Date.reg" for example) -Please pay attention if Export range is set to "All" -click on save 4. Click on the + infront of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -Click the + of SYSTEM -Click the + of CurrentControlSet -Click the + of Enum -Click the + of USB Here you can remove all VID``s -Before you remove the VID you have to set the right permissions, this can be done as follows: Right click on the folder USB and click on "Permissions", select in the window that pops-up Everyone and and select "Full control" at the permissions. 5. Reboot PC without ANY USB devices connected - install the software and plugins - connect the device to your pc by usb Check if device works and if still showing as "Philips Nike" try the first step again. Hope this helps, Weedy
