You need to use Itunes to load music on your ipod. All you need to do is go and download Itunes and it will add your music into it and just tell it not to be your default player if you still like using windows media player on your computer

SOURCE: Media player does not detect device

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
-----
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Add the files in the folder music. but when want play there isn`t files


HI,
It is possible that the problem is it is either you are putting the song in an incorrect folder or your are suppose to use a program to sync music in the MP3 player for it to detect the audio or songs properly.
just like iTunes on an iPod if iTunes is not used then the audio can be put in the folder of the MP3 player/iPod but will not be detected when the MP3 player is used to play the song/music, Same goes for you Samsung MP3 Player I suggest you check for an application or program that you may need to use in order to get the Audio/Song/Music detect when putting them in the Samsung MP3 Player.
I hope this helps.
Have a nice day,

Hi, I recently purchased an mp3 (it's a small black thing that looks like my square ipod). It came with two songs built into it but I wish to add my own songs. Can you help with this?


no problem it should have come with a cable to conect it to your pc so now open up windows media player and connect your mp3 player and wait for it to be detected once that happens the open up the library in media player and drag the music you want on you mp3 player to the sync list on the right hand side of the screen once done click on sync, media player will take care of the rest

Windows media player says no device connected


Windows Media Player has a limit of 3 portable devices that can be detected at any one time. I would uninstall every mp3 player's software that is installed on that machine and try again.

Sansa M230 not seen in Explorer or Windows Media Player


We had the same problem with Windows XP. We found some help on the Sandisk web site. On the device go to the Settings menu, then USB. We changed from AutoDetect to MSC mode and everything is working again. Our computer saw all of the songs on our computer fine. Some of the old songs on the Sansa didn't show up on the detect list in Windows Media Player, but they were still on the device.

System files - windows doesnt seem to now be able to detect iriver


There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
