Question about Philips SA1200 MP3 Player

Computer won't recognize my Mp3 Player

I recently got a new computer after using my Mp3 player for about a year. When I got the new computer with Windows XP I installed the Phillips driver that came with my Mp3 player and plugged in the player. The first couple of times I tried it said that the USB device had malfunctioned and to unplug it and plug it in again. So I did and the same message came up again. I clicked on the message and went through the trouble shooter which basically told me that it couldn't help me. Now when I plug my Mp3 player nothing happens. No sound, no bubble, nothing in My computer. It still plays, but won't synchronize. I tried it on a different computer, also XP, without the driver and the same thing happened. Nothing popped up. I really don't know what to do.

Why won't my new mp3 work properly?

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :-

Computer doesn't recognize MP3 player -

Check My Computer. If the PC recognises the Sansa player then simply add the songs by dragging the files into the player's icon on My Computer. Sometimes this kick starts the built in software included on the mp3 player.

I think I have a solution. First you turn on the MP3 Player and then go to the menu. Go down to settings. Then, go to USB. Go down to "MSC" and hit the middle button. It should take you back to the settings menu. That means you successfully changed that setting. Now plug the MP3 Player back into the computer and open up "My Computer." It should show up. I hope this helps!

I had the same problem, all you have to do is first turn on the Mp3.Then go to settings. Then go down to USB mode. It will probably say, auto detect.But instead scroll down to MSC. If that doesn't work try MTP.
