Question about Philips HDD082 MP3 Player

Computer reads the player as a CAMERA

Pretty much self explanitory, ive had it for about 1 year now and ive had this problem before but was somehow able to fix it but now can't remember how after i got my computer cleaned and rebooted. i connect it to my computer and i can't use the device manager because it dosen't recognise it as being an mp3 player but instead interprets it as being a digital camera or a scanner. thx for the help :)

My first gen touch wont turn on, it wont sync to my pc, and i cant get any kind of response out of it, ive tryed plugging it in, but the screen stays blank, and the computer doesnt recognise that it is...

Your iPod seems to be pretty dated - like 4 years old. A usual iPod only lasts for about 1 - 2 years - so bravo for making it last 4!
What seems to be the case is that your iPod probably has a dead battery so you can choose to do either of the following:
  1. Go to the Apple Store and ask for a repair on the iPod.
  2. Go to the Apple Store with your old iPod and purchase a new one. Mention to them that you are willing to give up your old one, and you will get 10% off of the price.

How do i work my eclipse mp3 player? I plugged in the usb cord to the computer from the mp3 player and it will not turn on or charge.

My player is telling me that i need to format the unit even though it's loaded with music files and have had no problems with it in three years. I don't know why this has happened. Please advise..thank you

Somehow the data has gotten corrupted and it can no longer read the contents, or worse, memory failure. You might be able to salvage some of the data by connecting it to a computer and copying the files to the computer. Then, disconnect and let the player format the memory.

RCA Lyra H100A

You must be running Windows 98 - see if RCA's website has the driver - you must have that driver or the installation CD - there is no other way (unless you get a computer running Windows XP or higher):

1. Insert the supplied installation CD into the CD-ROM drive first.
2. Read the readme file of the installation CD.
3. Double Click “77xinst”, then Restart Computer.
Method Two:
1. Insert the supplied installation CD into the CD-ROM driver and
connect the unit to your PC via the supplied USB cord.
Note: Do not select the charging battery mode after connecting the
unit to your PC. Please see page 4 for details.
2. If the player is recognized by your PC, the “Add New Hardware
Wizard” is activated, and click “Next”.
