I'm assuming this is plugged in via a USB port? What sort of mp3 player is it? I've never seen an mp3 player that showed up as a "drive" with a drive letter, but rather it shows up as a "device" which in some cases, Windows Explorer knows how to access and navigate.

It is possible that if the mp3 player is not recognized by Windows 98 (too old to know about the hardware) that you need to install specific programs that came with your player to allow the operating system to browse the player's files. With an 11 year old OS that may be a challenge.

Hey, windows 98 doesn't have usb support. you will need to get a driver for you mp3 player from the mp3 makers website, if they don't have a driver for it im sorry it wont work with your computer. you can also contact them and ask for a driver but as windows 98 is no longer supported. its very likely that todays mp3 players wont work with it.

Plug it into my computer and although it says its connected, my computer doesnt see it.


Hello

Ok, if the computer makes a sound, without notifying you that the device is not recognized, here is something you can try.

Go to:
Start
Control Panel
Administrative tools
Computer Management
Storage
Disc Management

Now you should see your Mp3 drive in the schematic below, right click on it and choose to assign new drive letter and paths.If there is no drive letter assigned to the drive, assign on, otherwise just choose the option to change the drive letter.

Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
Andrea

Computer doesn't recognize my sony NW-E002F.


Try a different USB port on the computer. Preferably one directly in the computer (not on an external device).
Sometimes the computer has a hard time assigning it a drive letter because other devices might be using a letter the drive thinks it has to have. You can also try plugging the drive into a usb port and starting the computer from the off position.

I HAVE DOWNLOAD MUSIC TO MP3 BUT I CANT GET ON


If you mean you can't put the MP3 files you downloaded onto the player, then you simply need to plug the player into a USB port on your computer -- either directly into the port (for some player models) or via an extension cable.
Once you've done so, the computer will "recognize" the player as a new disk drive, and assign a drive letter to it. Your computer will normally inform you via a pop-up, that it found new hardware.

Now just use Windows Explorer to drag and drop the mp3 files onto the new drive. This loads the files onto the player. Once the transfer is complete you can unplug the player, and it's ready to go.

Doesn't connect


Ok, there are a few steps that I need you to do...
with your MP3 plugged into the computer, goto:
-> DESKTOP (front page of the computer)
-> right click on MY COMPUTER
-> left click on MAP NETWORK DRIVE
-> left click on the DRIVE Z:
-> now that this is open, look for an open drive (ex:O,P,Q - do not pick A or Z drive), so we won't wreck another drive when creating a spot for your MP3 Player and remember the open drive letter, and close off this page.

Now that you have the drive letter:
-> Right click on MY COMPUTER
-> left click on MANAGE
-> look for DISK MANAGEMENT and left click on it
-> you should see Volume for SYSTEM and UNKNOWN or REMOVABLE
-> right click on unknown/removable and assign/change to the drive letter from the previous task
-> press ok to save

That should get you to your MP3 player on your computer.

Cant put songs onto my daughters bratz mp3 player


Hi, 
When plugging a USB removable device/storage, you should see an icon named "Safely Remove Hardware" in the system tray (right side of the task bar, near the clock). Left click on it, and you should see a list of removable hardware.
If you can not see the device there, then there is problems with your MP3 player, perhaps the battery is too weak; if this is the case, just leave it a few minutes until the device charged and initializes and recognized by the computer.
If you can see the device, but no drive letter assigned to it, then there is problem assigning drive letter to it.
You can re-arrange the drive letter assignment by entering Computer Management console: right-click on My Computer, then click on Manage.
Choose Disk Management, and assign a drive letter to your device.

Ilo mp3 I cant erase or add music


If you are running windows XP.

Right-click on the Start button. Click properties. While in the Start Menu tab click on Customize... button. Under Start Menu items, scroll to the bottom of the list and click the Display on the All Programs and Start Menu under System Administration Tools.

Now, click ok to finish these two windows you have open.

Click Start,
Click Administrative Tools,
Click Computer Management.
Now on the left side there will be System Tools, Storage, Services and Applications. We want to use Disk Management to see what drive letter is assigned to your mp3 player.

If you see a drive that does not have a letter assigned to it. Right click on the drive and pick Change Drive Letter and Paths...

Assign it any letter that you like (that isn't already used by another drive on this list,) and you should be able to view your files to add or remove just like another drive.

Most common reasons for this happening are... You are connected to a network that assigns drive letters to remote drives, or you have usb devices (like card readers) on your computer that have been assigned the letter that your mp3 player wants to call itself.

Please let me know if this helped you fix your problem.

should have at least windows 2000 sp4 or xp sp1 as operating system. plug into usb port on computer while computer is turned on. computer should recognize and install it as mass storage usb device and assign it a drive letter. sometimes xp will recognize it as a panasonic mtp device. this doesn't matter, you can still drag and drop files on it through windows explorer file manager.
