You must Look on your Desktop Locate
My Computer
Right click on My computer
click on Properties
Go to the Hardware tab
Click on Device Manager
Locate your USB Ports which are probably at the bottom of that list
If there is an X over the USB Connections you must right click to enable them
The other solution is to plug up the device and follow the above steps
I sensing that this device did not have drivers that were downloaded to your system.
The other thing is try to plug the device into another computer to see if it is reocginized by the other computer. If it is reocognized you know it is not the device. It is software related

My Philips Gogear is not recognised by my PC so I cannot download or upload music


Use the USB port at the back of your computer.
Set to MSC mode of your player. Select Settings -> PC connection preference.

Try to avoid using a USB hub. Try to avoid using a USB extension cable.

My Acer laptop ASPIRE 5738 does not recognise USB Mouse, previously it is working fine. But if I attach other USB device it is working. It is only problem with USB mouse.


Do you have another USB mouse around that you can test with? It sounds like the USB port on your laptop is fine but the mouse is the issue.
If you can find a spare around and test or alternatively you could try to bring the laptop to a friends house and borrow their USB mouse temporarily.
My guess is that the other mouse will work fine. How many USB ports does this computer have? You can also try changing which port you plug it in to.

I have windows 98 can i download songs to my mp3 trio


The MP3 player uses a USB cable to download music files from the computer. Windows 98 does not support USB port even if the computer has a USB port. If the computer has a USB port then you need to install a Windows 98 USB driver so it can connect with the MP3 player to download mp3 music files.

I have an acer 5740G laptop to which when i am connecting the MV 920 cannon cam corder through the camera's port in to the laptop's USB port, the laptop does not recognise this as an external removable...


This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection for stills (if they have one) and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. With desktop Windows PCs, you can fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This comes with a driver for the card. If your laptop doesn't have a Firewire socket, then you are probably stuck.

Won't play back and is no longer recognised by my computer


Problem solved with my jensen SMP-1GBD MP3 player. I re-examined the instructions & followed them exactly as they were written, then the unit worked just fine. What I found out was that you first have to plug in the ear phones, then you have to hold down the "on", button for three full seconds before it will turn on. It was just a case of not following the proper procedures as written on page four under the "Power on/off ", section of the directions.

My laptop dosent recognize my phillips gogear SA60XX


You can get the installation software from Philips website. Some laptops have a USB 1.1 port, which does not have enough power to support an Mp3 player. If the laptop USB port is definitely a USB 2.0 port, then hold in the volume + button on the Go Gear before connecting it to the laptop to see if you can force recognition.
