Re: its not open like troubleshooting
Try this what you need to do is plug your player into the computer. Then, in the go to my computer in your start area. In your computer folder, you should have a removable disk (D:), this is your player.
Right click on the tab and go to Format, click on quick format and then start.
The next window that should pop up will say that it will may erase all
the files on the device. That is ok. It will erase all the music you
had on there, but that is easy enough to load back on.
Wait for it to finish, unplugg it, turn it on, and you should be good. All you have to do now is reload the music!

make sure the mp3 cd you burned is just that, meaning when you burn it, burn it as a data cd and make sure that all the files you put on it are .mp3 and not something like .mp4 .acc .wma if they are you'll have to get a conversion program and convert them into .mp3 files
if you plug your mp3 player in, it will open something saying what you would want to do with it. click open to view files, or something like that. click internal memory, then click photo. then, you can drag and drop your files onto it. if that doesn't work, get the sansa media converter.
Hoot the MP3 player to your computer. Open My Computer and open the external hard drive device that is now listed (this is your MP3 player). After your have opened your MP3 player you should see whatever folders currently exist on the player. Right click and you will see the option "new" or "new folder" to create a new folder. When you select to create a new folder you can click on the name and rename it whatever you want. Hope this helps!
Go to Control panel>Performance and maintenance> System> Hardware> Device manager> Universal Serial Bus Controller, click on the + sign to see the list of installed devices. If your player is connected, it should be listed there with a yellow flag (the yellow flag indicates that although the connection is there, it is not working properly). Right click on it>Properties>Troubleshoot. See if the troubleshooter can help. If not, click on Action on the top bar and then Uninstall. Leave your shuffle on and connected and reboot. XP should now recognize and install it.
Another possible solution.
Click on Start, click on Run and type the following in the opening textbox:
and press the Enter key
A window will open (black and white) and will display the following:
C:\Documents and Settings\Your Name\
Type the following at the end of the above line after the \
Net start stisvc
And press the Enter key
You will get a message that service is already started (if so this does not solve the problem) or that it is starting (if so this may solve the problem). Then try connecting your camera after you close this window. To close this window, type EXIT at the end of the displayed line and press the Enter key.
Yet another possible solution:
Open Tweak UI if you have it. Get it if you don't. In Tweak UI, open the My Computer tab/line and click on Drives. A list of all possible drive names will appear with the ones you want to show in My Computer checked. If your removable storage/generic volume/camera drive as shown in Device Manager (mine was F:) is not
checked, check it. The drive will appear in My Computer.
If your drive is already checked, it's something else.
Tweak UI can be downloaded from the following site:
