Re: why is it not finding it
This is the worst mp3 player ever invented - i have to tell you this up front. There is no driver, the company does not support the product anymore - I would return it now while you still can.
Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it 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.

Plug in the Philips mp3 player to your computer. Use a USB cable to make the
connection so you can begin synchronizing your music collection.
Start Windows Media Player. Depending on how your computer is set up,
this program may start automatically when you make the connection with
the MP3 player
Find the Sync tab in the media player window. Click on this tab and open
the Sync screen. The Sync screen has two panes. The left pane is for
the music collection on your computer; the right pane is for the Philips MP3 Player
Choose the songs from your collection that you want to add to theMp3 Player's memory. Check the boxes that are presented by each song title
Click the "Start Sync" button. The files from your computer are being copied onto your MP3 player.
Wait for the sync to complete. You can monitor the progress in the "Windows Media Player" window.
Close the media player program. Unplug your Philips mp3 player from the computer
NOTE:If this doesn't work you might be able to see your player in the MY Computer window.(after you connect it via USB cable) Select the player copy the songs and paste them into the player. Safely remove the device. You should be able to play the songs ..

Then hit the sync button to load player!! If doesn't use wma then find out which type files it plays then find out which music service it syncs to!!swampratt200!!AAAEEE!!!
If you are using windows xp open my computer The mp3 player should be there as a removable drive You can drag and drop mp3 files into Or you can use windows media player to sync the songs you want on it
Make sure you have the latest version of Windows Media Player. XP has all the right drivers but the iRiver needs to synchronise with Media Player inorder to transfer music onto the player using the sync function. Get Media Player 10 or higher then plug the iRiver into the computer.
