Re: SA2315/37

That is a common problem these days, and one of the difficulties about owning a new OS. Manufacturers will need to provide their products' users with drivers that will support Vista when they are not cross compatible. I would contact your item and see if they are working on a resolution. YOU may be able to use similar products, different manuf drivers to get yours recognized. Do a GOOGLE for your product and see if there are any others out there that have found drivers for your player. IT is possible to set a computer up dual-boot OS's, Windows XP and Vista CAN coexist. Hope this helps!

My igolf neo won't work with Windows 7 if i try

I fixed this problem by going to Start>Control Panel and uninstalling the Java 64-bit program. It is incompatible with the Neo sync application. The other Java program on there is compatible. It worked immediately without even restarting. (I tried the above Best Solution, but on the newer computers, I get a message saying the Vista driver is only for Vista, not for Windows 7).

Cant get the stupid thing to be redognised by vista usb drivers for the mp3 not installed or regnoised

Hi There,               Vista should reconize  it as a usb divice and look into the storage space. Just try to use vista in the control panel and goto add new hardware if ask for driver just but in the software mini cd it came with. I have no problem with mine. If it does not work then you might have a faulty product or you should ask a vista tech how to identify a a usb divice mp4 player to windows. I know the pmp 8308 Missil is compatible with Microsoft Window Vista. It should just be plug and play and identify as a usb device so you can drag and load your videos or mp3s or pictures or even text into your ebook on the device. I hope I helped a bit. Good Luck

Sandisk is not detected in Vista operating system notebook

See the FAQ here -

The most common reason for this problem is not having the latest Windows Media Player installed, or having a Windows OS version that is not supported by the Sansa player.
The Sansa players support Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista and above. If your operating system version is supported by the Sansa player:
SOLUTION 1 – Download and install the latest Windows Media Player

SOLUTION 2 – If that didn’t help, and you are running Windows Vista, apply the following hotfix - KB940199
SOLUTION 3 – If that didn’t help, download and Install the MTP Porting Kit (click here)
SOLUTION 4 – If that didn’t help, try connecting the device to the PC using MSC mode

View/c200: Turn on & press and hold the rewind button while plugging into the PC

The ez-installer disc wont install on my computer

Make sure that your computer's OS matches the product specs for your player. If it says Windows XP only, it may not work with Windows Vista. If it doesn't say Macintosh, then it is not Maac compatible. Check the manufacturer's website to see if they have an updated version of the software - many manufacturers, like Philips, now have updated software available on their website to support Vista and other OS's.
