    Thanks for your advice, but I still have a problem. On the back of the package of the Philips SA2315 MP3 player, the requirements said that the MP3 player is compatible with Windows ME, which I have. But when I tried to update the Windows Media Player for my computer, the latest update that was compatible for Windows ME is Windows Media Player 9. I downloaded that, and it didn't solve the problem that I had with my drivers. Should I try to download Windows Media Player 10 for windows ME?

  • DenisL Sep 19, 2007

    I tried that but it didn't work, it said that it can only be used with Windows XP.

Most of the newer MP3 players use the drivers built into Windows media Player 10 and newer. I would suggest checking the version of Windows Media Player. Best of Luck.

Hi, my pc don't read the mp34 audio player =( help!!!


Why is my mp3 and mp4 player not being detected by my computer when I connect it?

This may be caused by one of the following:
1. Minimum system requirements were not met.
2. Corrupted drivers.
3. Computer restrictions.
4. Power issue.

To resolve this issue, try the following solutions:

SOLUTION 1 - For brand new player or first time connecting to this computer.

For Windows XP users: verify the following operating system requirements are met.
- Windows XP SP2 or higher
- Windows Media Player 10 or higher

Download and install the latest Windows Media Player if it's not installed.

For Windows Vista users: If the player is seen in My Computer when using MTP mode, but not showing in Windows Media Player.
- Download the hotfix from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939211.
- Run the hotfix.

For MAC users, see mp3 and mp4 player not recognized by a MAC OS

NOTE: If you are trying to connect to a Computer at work that is part of a network, there may be user right restrictions that are set to disable access to new hardware or stop any program installations. You may need to check with your IT administrator to see if this is causing the problem.



SOLUTION 2 - Refresh the driver

STEP 1 - Connect the mp3 and mp4 player to the PC
The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery charging or full.
- If the player does not turn on try other USB ports or on another computer if one is readily available. Ensure you are connecting directly to the computer USB port and not to a USB hub.
- If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up in as a storage device in an explorer window, then the screen is just not working.

If you receive the error "USB Device Not Recognized" on the computer, the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.

.

STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager
1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage.
Image
2. Click Device Manager on the left pane.
Image

NOTE: mp3 and mp4 Players can connect to your computer in MSC or MTP mode. Exceptions are mp3 and mp4 Connect and Sansa Express which only use MTP mode. MTP mode is the recommended and default method for mp3 and mp4 Players when used with Windows OS.

The mp3 and mp4 player will show up on Device Manager's right pane as:
1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC)
2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode)

If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers.


STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers
1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall.
2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.

NOTE: If a device with yellow exclamation point (!) continually appears and disappears, then the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.

No audio output device is intall


I also could not find recovery manager, and I also did not have the option when going to device manager and selecting action to scan for hardware changes. However, I fixed the problem by these steps:

1) Go to device manager

2) Select sound, video, and game controllers from the list, and select high definition audio device when it drops down

3)New window opens. Select the driver tab. Click uninstall.

4)Then after it is uninstalled, go back to device manager window.
Select action, and THEN you will have the option of scanning for hardware changes.
Select this option and it will reinstall and the problem should be fixed.

I cant get in my computer but its showing in device manager


As you tell the device in can only be detected in the device manager.
It can not be seen as a removable disk in MSC mode and neither in MTP mode, showing as media player with the Sans icon.

Consult next page about 'player not being recognized':
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/42/kw/manager/r_id/101834
Refresh the drivers or manually ad the driver for the player as described.


Sansa manual for e200 series (version 2):
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/downloads/um/e200v2_userguide_en.pdf

Important:
1. Check the system requirements of the computer as described in the manual on page 8 of the file [=page 5].
2. Charge the device using an USB connector directly to the computer,
not through a hub or card reader, preferred at the back side.

If more help is needed, just post a comment.
