SOURCE: USB Device Not Recognized

It sounds like you need a driver for your player on the pc - or the old one is somehow corrupted. There are some conflict issues with new versions of windows media player also. Go to this link; http://www.usasupport.philips.com/productDocuments.html?ProductCode=HDD082/17B&subCat=HDD_AUDIO_JUKEBOX_SU_US_CONSUMER and download the "Firmware Manager" about halfway down. Install it and see if your problem is solved. if not, please post again with details of which windows version you are using on the pc, and I can talk you through a few more things to try. You can also see if i'm online and talk live if you prefer. Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: the mp4 player keeps crashing my computer

If your PC is running Windows Vista, don't even think about conencting it until you get the firmware upgrade for the device.



Triple Reset for GoGear:
Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player.

Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

Make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged. If you are running Windows Vista, you need to get the upgraded software from Philips website. If all else fails:

Push in the tiny reset button on the device. If that doesn't fix it, install the latest firmware from Philips.com

Sony Home Theatre System Turning Off


Appears that you have a bad cap in the power supply that is changing value as it heats up. Hard to find - only thing you can do is go to suspected units and replace them hoping that you got the bad one. Or just wait till it finally pops.

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.

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.

My ipod is showing file system error


Hi


File system error can appear due to unplugging the MP3 player without disconnecting it. It may have happened due to formatting it with a different file format or due to memory issue with the player. Please reformat your MP3/MP4 player. Connect it to the computer, go to My computer-> right click on the mp3/mp4 player after it is displayed-> select format-> Format it as FAT32 File system. Formatting the MP3/MP4 player will delete all the songs/data from the player. So, backup all data before formatting it. Hope this helps...

Dv Mp4 Mp5 player cannot recognize by PC


Your younger brother should be doing your chores for the next month to repay you for wrecking your Mp4 player - I am guessing formatting it erased everything including the operating software.

The Mp4 player like most things is a small computer and computers are just so much junk if they don't have an operating system.

I fear your player will remain junk unless you can find a suitable operating system and persuade the player to accept it.

I suggest you contact the supplier for advice in the first instance, you could be lucky and find them helpful.

If that fails then asking around all the nerds and boffins you might know of could produce results, as could some general online research.

Korg Triton Le keyboard not working


Hello! My Triton LE did that yesterday at rehearsal room. It came on twice (by turning it off and on every time the error message appeared), I could play the auditions and demos but when i hit the keys i heard nothing.

Soon after I went home (still with sweat on my forehead and my heart pumping like a pneumatic drill) I connected it and everything was working like nothing ever happened!

So guys, everybody who has the same problem: Don´t panic! I think for me, the power plug at the rehearsal room had a problem. Who thinks of that? Nobody... So check your keyboard on another power plug...If you can, try it in a friends house. Or check your house plugs.

I assume if the Keyboard doesn´t get enough power, the error message appears. Hope that Helps!

Can install new firmwire


1. Download Winrar here, its a freeware, this will help you open the file

2. Download the firmware here, the newest one is 4.13

3. Unzip the firmware file and select "extract to" using winrar, just extract it to the "desktop"

4. After the 2 files are extracted from the folder, select both of them, right-click and select "cut"

5. Now, go to "My Computer", double-click "P2" (that's the MP4 player) and double-click "internal storage", now, in this directory, "Paste" the 2 files you "cut" earlier, once the files have been successfully pasted (look at your PC screen and MP4 player and make sure nothing is transferring), exit the window, unplug the MP4 player and power it on, the player will be updating and turning of a few times, but once its of, turn it back on until the whole process is finished.

Mp4 player - accidental deletion of software


ok...here goes...

Right-Click the "Removable Disk" icon, and scroll down to "Properties"

click "Properties" and another window will appear. There are Tabs at the top of the window. click the "Tools" tab.

select the "Check Now" function located next to the "Error-Checking" option. ANOTHER window will appear.

select "Automatically fix file system errors" and click "Start".

This takes around 15 seconds and usually fixes the problem. you will then be able to add/delete files in the MP4 player.
