Computer recognizes 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 ipod touch still isnt recongnised by my computer as an ipod, it comes up as a camera. ive tried reinstalling itunes, updating the driver and it still wont work. any more suggestions?

Your computer will only recognize your iPod as a camera, because its supposed to.
  1. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod.
  2. Scroll down on the left side, you should see your iPod there.
  3. If you do not, then consult the Apple Store.

ive got the new version of the sony sonic stage downloaded onto my laptop,and when i plug my player into my laptop via usb cable,the player itself is recognized straight away as a harddrive/removable disk etc,and you have to transfrer music onto the player as from sonic stage music library,and you also have to creatate you own music library via sonic stage,and u can also transfer music from your own music library wich you use via windows media player,and also u can transfer a cd into you sony sonic stage music libraty,and this is similar to when your using the windows media player as to rip a cd or transfer music onto an mp3 player,as i use all diffrent types of mp3 players myself,and i find the archos gmini sx 202 player to be pretty awesome player,as ive got to of them as well,and i use windows media player as to transfer music files onto them,and i cannot transfer any music files onto the sony ones via windown media player as those music file wont show up on the player at all,and ive tried this myself,and it will only work via sony sonic stage.

I have a goodmans gmp38g6 mp3 player its new and battery run out for first time today so ive pluged it in usb to charge and nothing happens ive tried usb port with my camera thats fine and ive tried usb...

Press and hold the reset button (located underneath the hold switch) for 10 seconds. If there is still life in the battery it should start working. If not then if should begin charging when plugged in.

Hope this helps.

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”.
