If it's format you wish to do, make sure your mp3 player is connected to your computer first.

Once it's connected to your computer go to "Start" - "My Computer" - look for something called "Removable Disk" place your mouse over and just see if it's your mp3 player if it is right-click on now click on "Format".

Allow format to complete and try your mp3 player again.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.

My samsung yp-u5 mp3 player was not work attached the pc they shows not drive in the devise. so i want driver insatallation methode of samsung yp-u5 mp3 playe.

MP3 players use the popular USB connection which sometimes produces errors while connecting. These messages are similar to the "Device Not Recognized" error received with various USB devices. Fixing an MP3 player is sometimes specific to the brand, but they are so similar that most can be fixed the same troubleshooting steps.


Device Manager

Click "Start" and go to "Control Panel." Double-click "System" and locate the Hardware tab to find the Device Manager. Vista and Windows 7 users can just type "Device Manager' from the start menu.

Locate "Disk Drives" from the list and double-click "Portable Device." If there is an exclamation mark or other error on the device, go to the "Drivers" tab.

Click "Uninstall" and remove the player. Restart the computer and attach the player reinstall the drivers.

Anti-virus conflicts

Plug the player into a different computer to see if it gets recognized. If it does not, contact the manufacturer to find out if it is broken.

Turn off your anti-virus program on your PC if the device works on other computers. Reinstall the drivers using the device manager as described in section 1.

Plug in the player to confirm the connection.

Other solutions

Check the battery level and make sure the batter is not low or depleted. A low battery will sometimes prevent the player from connecting. Let it charge from the power cord, if necessary.

Verify that you have at least Service Pack 1 installed. Go to the Start menu and type "Run." Press Enter.

Type "Winver" in the box and press "Enter." The Windows version will be displayed along with any installed service packs. Download a service pack from Microsoft, if applicable.

Remove the player from the USB port and push a pin into the reset hole located on the bottom. Reconnect to see if the problem is resolved.

Check the connection to make sure it's secure. The cable should fit firmly into both the player and the computer. Connect to a different USB port if you have one available.

Download updated firmware or use the MP3 Recovery Tool provided under Resources (for Zen players).

Tips & Warnings

A bad cable will sometimes prevent a good connection. Use a different one to isolate the cause.

Have been using an ma566 mp3 player (1G) for a couple of years now. I have used it on 2 different computers with windows XP as well as windows vista. I had it plugged in and was deleting some music so I...

It is probably corrupted. This solution will delete ALL information and files on the MP3 player.

Under Windows go to "Control Panel" then "Administrative Tools"

Next go to "Computer Management"

Under this menu scroll down the menu bar on the left side and select "Disk Management"

Now this is the tricky part, you need to find your MP3 player, if you see a device with 1GB of memory that is it.

Right click it and select "Delete Volume"

Then right click it again and select "Create Volume" (Or something similar)

Once the volume is created it should function properly once again.

Sandisk is not being recognized on my computer

SOLUTION 1 - Verify if minimum system requirement is met.
SanDisk card readers support Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2 and Windows 2000 SP4.

For MAC users, see
Troubleshooting USB device on MAC

SOLUTION 2 - Verify the reader's status under Device Manager.

STEP 1 - Connect the reader to the PC

NOTE: It is recommended that you plug your card reader to the back USB port on your PC to ensure that there is enough power from the USB port for the card reader to be detected properly.

STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager
1. Right-click My Computer.
2. Select Manage.
3. On the left pane, click Device Manager.

NOTE: The card reader will appear in two places: Disk Drives and Universal Serial Bus controls as USB Mass Storage. If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) next to 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, and then click Scan for hardware changes.

STEP 4 - Verify if the reader is detected
1. Double-click My Computer.
2. Look for the card reader under Devices with removable storage.

SOLUTION 3 - Try other USB ports.
A yellow exclamation point (!) under Device Manager usually means that the device is not receiving enough power. If the reader is not receiving ample amount of power from the USB port, it may not function properly.

SOLUTION 4 - Change the drive letters

NOTE: The SDDR-89 reader should show 4 drive letters under My Computer.

How to fix sansa clip rhapsody installation problems. it says i need to trouble shoot at 99% and then it stops. i alredy downloaded the firmware and it still does that

IMPORTANT: To function properly, your Walkman® player must be recognized by your computer as a Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) device. If the portable player was connected to the computer before the Windows Media® Player version 10 or later was installed, it will be recognized as a Mass Storage Class (MSC) device and not function properly. In that case, a different procedure is available to correct this issue. For some models, when you use the portable player for the first time, if you have not used it for a long time, or the battery is depleted, it may take up to 5 minutes for it to be recognized or start charging. On models with a display, the display will remain blank. If it the portable player is not recognized or does not begin to charge after waiting 5 minutes, reset the player by pressing the reset button.

If the issue persists, please Click Start and then click Control Panel . In the Control Panel window, click Performance and Maintenance . In the Performance and Maintenance window, click System . In the System Properties window, click the Hardware tab. On the Hardware tab, under Device Manager , click the Device Manager button. In the Device Manager window, click the plus (+) sign in front of Disk drives . Click to select the Sony USB device . From the menu, click Action and then click Uninstall . In the Confirm Device Removal box, click OK . Disconnect the portable player from the computer. In the System Settings Change box, click Yes .

After that, restart the computer and reconnect the player

My BUSlink MP3 player is flashing "Hello"

Have you checked the battery voltage? make sure its in the original capacity. Go to Control panel>Performance and maintenance> System> Hardware> Device manager> Universal Serial Bus Controller, click on the + sign to see the list of installed devices. If your player is connected, it should be listed there with a yellow flag (the yellow flag indicates that although the connection is there, it is not working properly). Right click on it>Properties>Troubleshoot. See if the troubleshooter can help. And you can format it there.
