Question about Panasonic SV-MP020 MP3 Player
Does anyone else's SV-MP020 hold less than 300 where it's supposed to hold like 500? Anyway, that's beside the point. What's happening is when I plug in my MP3 to my Vista laptop (which has previously allowed uploading) it says the usual: Wait... Except it just freezes here, and doesn't do anything, it recognizes that there's something there, because when I plug in the USB cord and take it out, it makes a noise. However, my MP3 won't get past this screen, and when I open Windows Media Player, that won't recognize a device, either. What should I do? I've tried resetting it, and formatting it. Anything else I can do??
Player has problems with windows media player 11. works with wmp 10. player also has problems with vista. firmware was designed for xp. no firmware updates available. you can try dragging and dropping through windows explorer, treating it as a usb mass storage device. it will play folders and songs this way. to get vista to recognize it, format the player through the player's menu ( set-system-format ) not through the computer. take out the battery for 15 minutes. reboot your computer. put battery back in. plug into usb port. hopefully vista recognizes it as usb device

SOURCE: Panasonic SV-MP020 Wait Problem
Make sure the usb jack is all the way in the player. Mine had a couple of mm of metal showing and felt like it was in, the display lit up, said 'wait' and then 'goodbye' :-(. Only later did I realise the jack still could be pushed fully in a bit further, and then *bingo*, a working mp3 player

SOURCE: after downloading more songs
There is probably a reset switch somewhere that you will have to find, It will be tiny, Just big enough to put a needle in there. Press that and it should reset without losing any data. If it does the same "wait" thing again then remove any new songs you put on and put them back on one by one to see which one is corrupting the software and causeung the problem. Its a good idea to leave 25% free space on any storage device and especially MP3 players etc.
