Device unrecognizable on computer

I bought a TEAC Radio/CD system and got a free included Mp3 player with it. The name on the back of the MP3 player is MP-256PK, and SN:6X 11515-26. Well I connected my MP3 player to my computer to try downloading songs from my computer, but my computer doesn't recognize the MP3 player or USB connected. I went on 'my computer' and there was no devices listed connected to the computer. So I tested with a another MCAfee MP3, and a normal USB into my computer USB ports. My computer displayed that a device was connected, but when the TEAC Mp3 is connected it says theres no device connected on my computer? I put the SD card in, and it's on, so whats the problem

I lost the manual for my Teac Radio/CD player. The alarm is set for midnight and I do not know how to switch it off!

If your Teac Radio/CD Player is the model: GR 7I then you would be able to turn the alarm off by doing the following.
Press the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 button(s) to toggle each alarm on and then off.
If you have a different model Teac, please let me know which model so I can further assist you.

I have TEAC MP3 player MP235 and I can't listen more then 1 song. I have input repeat all int the setting, but after replaying 1. song the player is frozen and I can't listen any more. Can anybody help me...

You should restore the firmware of the device.
Please read this user manual especially the content of the page 22:
To do recovery you will need the CD you had got together with the player. If you have not it now the recovery tool can be downloaded from this website also.
This is here:[0]=235
It's name is Recovery Update Tool
The TEAC website give good support enough, and I hope your device will work fine again.

I bought this MP3 player on ebay and have recently just received it. My problem is that none of my computers cant seem to pick up this device at all. It came with a small CD for driver and manual but even...

Try a different cable to connect the unit to the computer. I had a similar problem and got solved when I used a different cable. I used a cable from a digital camera that had the same connections.
Not working on several computers gives you a clue - is not connecting at all, and is not the driver. Once you have a good cable it will be recognized without having to install any drivers.
That's how I solved my problem, maybe is the same.
Hope this helps.

I have plug my sansa mp3 player in the teac mc and it seems dead.

there may be a fuse in there or even on the back of the teac. if not on the back, then have to take the cover off, and just follow where the ac cord comes in and trace up to the switch, you may find a glass fuse there somewhere thats blown. In which case replace with an exact duplicate. (please be unplugged if you try this)

Nextar will not connect to computer

What operating system are you running?

Did you run the cd included with the device?

Did you click the bubble that popped up when you plugged in the device? If this appears, it can walk you through the device install process.

MP3 Player

There are two possible options (these are not guaranteed to work):
1) Go to, enter your mp3 player model number in the search tab and see if a new driver has been developed for this device to make it compatible with Vista
2) With your mp3 player plugged in to the computer, go to Start --> Control Panel --> Systema nd Maintenance --> Device Manager
3) Find your mp3 player on the list and double-click the device; click on driver tab and then update driver - select the option that allows you to search the computer AND the internet for the driver (make sure you are connected to the internet BEFORE selecting this option); if you do not see your exact mp3 player name on the list, look for a similar looking name on the list such as "MTP Device"; also, look for devices with a yellow exclamation mark next to them - this is a sign of a device needing a repair or driver update

Wont load on computer!!! "Unrecognizable"

Back up your files on the device, if possible and then perform a Repair:
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.

You will now be able to load the firmware upgrade that makes it compatible with Vista.
open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website; click on the Update tab.

Also, it sounds like your new laptop has the Automatic synchronization option selected for Windows Media Player. To fix this:
1) Backup all files stored on your GoGear, as this process will delete all files from your GoGear
2) Go into Windows Media Player 11 with your GoGear connected to the computer (it will automatically sync and add new files one last time), move the mouse cursor over to the sync tab; a small black arrow will appear under the word "Sync"; click on the small black arrow and a dropdown menu will appear; select "Portbale media device" from the dropdown menu, and another dropdown menu will appear; select "Set Up sync"; a window will appear with some information on your device - uncheck the box that says "Sync this device automatically"; click Finish; This will eliminate the problem of Windows always adding songs/files you don't want into your player.
