Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

Device not detected

I have tried to load songs onto this today. I have loaded up the Media Studio but when I connect the USB cable across to the player it does nto detect a device at all, therfore I have been unable to put any music on it so far. And my USB port is not broken, and I know the computer responds to this because it asks me to syncronise the files to Media Player, before telling me nothing is detected.

Is there a reason for this? The insturction guide was quite small and rather unhelpful in explaining this in any real depth, so some advice would be much appreciated :)

Re: Device not detected

OK I may be barking up a tall tree here. But, I had a samsung for about a day, then I went and got a sandisk. But, I seem to remember having some similar problems. I think I upgraded my windows media player, as well as I had to get some kind of media file or something like that from Microsoft. I just know that the first player I got did nothing. then the second player was the same deal, but someone told me to upgrade and when I went to microsoft, part of the upgrade included the file I am mentioning.

Cannot add new music or access previously loaded music

I know you hate to do this,..but reset your sanDisk, first,..if you've done this and it still doesn't allow you to add, will need to make a change in your settings....go to USB, then make sure you have selected "Auto Detect".

  1. Connect the USB cable to the back side of the device
  2. Connection the USB side of the cable into the USB port on your computer
  3. If you are using a Windows PC, you can locate your swimp3 drive in 'My Computer'
  4. If you are using a MAC, you will see a new icon appear on your desktop 'NO NAME'
  5. If you have MP3s on your computer you can drag and drop files onto your swimp3 drive
Once you have all the songs loaded onto your device, eject your device and enjoy listening to music underwater.

Cant load songs

the best way for that is to read your manual.

Windows XP SP1
Windows Media Player 10
Intel Pentium class PC or higher
CD-ROM drive
USB 2.0 port required for hi-speed transfer
Connect to your Computer
1. Connect the small USB Cable Connector to the USB port on your computer, and then plug the larger
Cable Dock Connector in to your Sansa c200 port.
2. Once connected to computer, it should be detected by the operating system automatically and is
shown as an additional drive called “Sansa c200”.
You will need to use Sansa Media Converter to transfer photos to your Sansa c200. Insert your SanDisk
CD and select Sansa Media Converter to install it to your PC. Then you can load your personal photos
onto your Sansa c200 by using Sansa Media Converter.

To transfer music to your Sansa c200:
1. Connect Sansa c200 to the computer.
2. Drag and drop files from your computer to Sansa c200 by using a variety of music software
programs to transfer/synchronize your files.
3. In MTP mode as long as the files are WMA or MP3, they can be dragged into the Media folder.
Otherwise, they can be dragged into the Data folder (these files will not appear on the player).
4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.

Cant down load songs i like

Go into WMP and connect the USB cable to your computer and player. Press the M button on the side til the screen reads "MTP." The device set-up wizard should start. Then hit the "sync" menu and drag and drop songs onto your sync list

Unable to find usb device in media studio

Does your device show up as a separate device in windows explorer? If so you may drag and drop files directly onto it.

Alternatively you can download alternative free media players like winamp and rhapsody which do the same job as media player.

If your device does not show up in windows explorer then you may have a usb problem on your Samsung media player. This is most likely to be a hardware fault which I don't know a free/cheap solution to.
