When I plug the mp3 player into my computer, it stops detecting anything on my external HD. I don't get any error message, and any files it was showing in Explorer appear to still be there, but if I try to run or copy any of them they aren't detected. If I restart the computer with the mp3 player and the HD both hooked up, only the mp3 player will be detected at all. However, if I reboot with only the HD plugged in, it works fine.
I'm running Windows XP Home, and the HD is an old WD 120 gig.
Re: My mp3 player is interfering with my external HD.

Connect the supplied USB cable to your player and then plug it into the USB port of your computer. The computer will detect your player as a Removeable disk or External storage device then click on this device to view the files, you can then click on the music file to highlight the fiel and then press the Del key to delete the file off your MP3 player.
Plug the MP3 player into the computer with a USB cable.
The MP3 player should then be automatically detected by your computer and show up as a device (external drive or folder) on your computer.
You must then open this external file (MP3 player) by either double clicking or right clicking with your mouse. Then drag the MP3 file or files from your computer to the MP3 player.
Your USB port might not be 2.0. Plug one side of your USB cord into the back of the computer & with the other side you plug it into your Zen. Run windows media player (it should be windows media 11. If not,upgrade) and your Zen should be detected
lol You don't need to uninstall anything just go into My Computer in the Start tap in the Bottom left corner of you screen and click on your mp3 player's picture and if there isn't a picture it will say your mp3 player's IP name or company name.
have you tried plugging your HD into another computer to see if it has the same problem with another computer?
if the 2nd computer is able to detect your HD, I suggest a backup of your files and format your HD immediately. Your primary computer should be able to detect it then.
A piece of advice: try removing or unplugging your HD once in awhile. External HD is somewhat different from internal HD. :)
Hello. It sounds like your external hard drive has crashed, or is getting ready to crash. If you can back up your data, you should do it now. If not, you should get your drive to a professional as soon as possible.
I'll monitor this thread. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.
Here's what you do. Make sure that you can play one of the sample videos to your TV. Next, stop and go to the home screen. Next, if your external HD has a powersource, plug that into the wall and the device so that it has power. Next plug the usb cable into the side of the DVR Station. The device screen (or the tv if you are still on tv out) should say, external device connecting. It will show the double browser screen and then just go to the file desired and click on OK. If the device doesnt recgnize and mount the external hd, could be because there is not enough power to the ext. HD or the HD is formatted in somehting other than fat32.
First, try getting the new version of the device manager from the Philips website.If that doesn't work, try repairing the device (warning: this will delete all songs from your GoGear, so you will have to re-add them again). 1) Back up all files on the GoGear 2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) 3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button 4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new
