SlicK MP3 USB player

I bought this from Family dollar, it did not come with a CD so I am guessing the driver is somewhere on the Flash Drive, but my computer won't read the driver and does not recognize the player at all when it is plugged in other than to say and unkown device is in the port.

  • trpomeroy Dec 15, 2008

    Need a driver or directions to one.
    All my usb devices had to have one. They all work.
    This was sold without one. It starts the search for driver routine.
    Where do I point it ? The Win 98/2 CD produces no joy.
    Monday it goes back to Family Dollar. If they wont refund my money I will hammer it into the counter in front of any and all customers present.

Boyfriend purchased one of these on the cheap. The first thing you have to do with this player is format it as if it is any other portable media. Go to the setting and say format main disk.

1) One of your USB devices have faulted, or is causing a resource conflict (or similar)
-- Remove all USB devices, and reboot.
2) Your USB chip/ports have been damaged.
-- Find a spare HardDisk or bacjup your data and re-install Windows and see how that goes.
3) Your Power Supply Unit (PSU) isnt supplying enough power to your PC (usually caused by a Video card upgrade). Try a more powerful PSU ... 400watts should do the trick
4) Bad memory (RAM) can cause wierd problems. run memtest for an hour to make sure your memory is ok

It seems that many people are still getting the 'USB Device not Recognized' problem from time to time. Unfortunately there is no easy fix.
Firstly, it's recommended that you make sure every one of your motherboard drivers are completely up-to-date, but you probably already knew that.
In XP, after a USB port isn't used for a long while the USB driver built into the OS sets the OHCI controller to suspend. When you plug a device back in, it can sometimes fail to 'wake up' properly. This problem was supposedly fixed in SP1 but there is a related registry hack that may still be able to help.
Run regedt32.exe and navigate to;
Create the Usb key if it doesn't already exist. Under this key, create a new DWORD value called DisableSelectiveSuspend and give it a value of 1. Then restart the PC.
A long shot perhaps, but I recall having similar problems with a USB hub built into my Microsoft keyboard and adding this key seemed to solve it. It wouldn't hurt in trying .
Alternatively, removing all entries relating to USB in Device Manager and all associated USB drivers will force XP into refreshing the USB driver stack.
Begin by unplugging all USB devices, then use Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel to uninstall any USB driver software. Next, boot up into safe mode and go to Device Manager. Once in device manager make sure 'Show hidden devices' is checked under the View menu. Uninstall all device entries in this order;
1. USB peripheral devices (printers etc.)
2. HID and/or Composite USB (Human Interface Devices) You're using PS/2 input devices so you may not have this entry.
3. USB Root Hub(s)
4. USB Host Controller(s) (Universal or Enhanced Host Controllers)
Then boot back into Windows (not safe mode) and it should populate the Root Hubs & Host controllers again. Proceed to plug your USB devices back in, starting with your powered hub. Be aware that most USB printers and scanners need to have their drivers installed first before you plug them in.
Hopefully some of this may be of help, let us know how you get on.

The manual said to use windows media player 11 to put the music on and hit the sync button on the windows media player. The cd was only to convert video files. There is no driver.

    That one doesn't have a driver. It only comes with a mini cd that is for converting video. The manual said to use windows media player 11 to load files to it. It said to click sync on the program to add the files.

Plug your slick mp3 into the usb port. Close the pop up that says you need a high speed usb port to download faster. Go to start menu and click my computer and double click on removable disk (E:) and drag the mp3 songs you download to your desktop from your desktop over to the window and they will download. Good luck, Jim B

Windows vista

There were several models made in the Classic format.
Early units had either Firewire or USB ports.
If would need an External CD Drive that plugs into the port on the player. Drivers would have to obtained from Apple at their web site and copied to a CD. Then a CD with the drivers would be inserted into a USB CD Drive and loaded on tot eh Player. The other solution is to Download the Drivers onto a computer, insert a FLASH Drive into the USB port on the computer, copy the drivers to the Flash Drive, and move the Flash drive over to the IPod's USB port. Copy the drivers or install from the Flash Drive.

Like most MP3 player with an inbuilt internal battery, your Slick 2gb mp3 music and video player will have an internal Li-Ion rechargeable battery that will be recharged via your USB Data cable while connected to an USB port on a PC/LAPTOP or USB charger.

Slick mp3 player

When you try to play it the screen should say locked. Push the bottom button that says hold and the screen should say unlocked. Hope that helps. I just bought the same MP3 player and am liking it so far.
