Re: insignia mp3

Similar issues. Both computers wouldn't recognize all of a sudden. Out of shear frustration - I switched to an older USB cord - worked - both computers recongnized the player. This was unexpected - since the new USB cord worked fine with my other devices (camera, etc.). So - recommendation is to try a different cord.

Re: insignia mp3

Please provide more information on the error message.

You can use Windows Explorer to transfer files to your insignia sport player. First, in the settings on your player, go to Settings, USB Mode, Connection Type and select File & Folder. Then, plug your player in to your USB cable. Windows XP should automatically find your player and make a new drive letter in Windows Explorer. Simply drag and drop your mp3 files from your c drive to the new drive for your player. You'll notice that when you delete the files on your new drive for your player that it doesnt remove them from your player. You'll need to use your player (settings, system, erase internal) to erase internal (and external), but after that when you add new files, they will be added to the player when it does the profiling after you disconnect the USB cable.

Computer does not recognize MP3 after reinstall

When you connect your mp3 player to your PC, it will appear in "My Computer" as a removable drive. If it does not, the USB port may be the problem. Plug a different device into this port to make sure it is working. If it is not, make sure you have all the drivers for your computer inastalled. Also try a different USB cable.

Computer does not recognize Coby MP822 4G MP3 player

The actual MP3 player should display a USB connection on the screen, if not, I would say its a connection issue (bad USB cable), my guess is your using a laptop, a lot of laptops disable their USB power options, you probably need to re-enable your USB ports, if desktop, it should show a USB connection on MP3, if not, battery or cable issue.

The computer does not recognize my Atak MP3 player.

My Zen Vision M Series has worked fine with my Dell Inspiron 1150 for about a year with no recognition problems. However, as of about a month ago my PC denies a connection with the Zen now. In many instances a windows message keeps appearing saying that the the usb ports cannot accomodate the connection between the two fast enough. I had minor problems with the usb ports, however, a simple reconnection resolved the problem. How can I get my computer (which is running XP) to recognize my MP3 player and might it really be a usb problem? Would appreciate any assistance mel4pat2000

Best buy program not detecting device

I've run into this problem myself and it ended up being a USB error or problem.

Instead of using the front USB ports like most people want to do (depending on the computer, those are good for flash drives, but are not universally stable for more comples items like MP3 players), try plugging it into the back USB ports.

If that doesn't work, I'd try it on another PC to rule out that the KIX is bad. If it's bad, return it to Best Buy and tell them USB failure. If it connects and is able to be used on a different PC, your USB controller is corrupt...and that's a Geek Squad issue.

These units take more power than a thumb drive and sometimes the front USB ports on a computer just don't push enough current to recognize these players (I have the same issue).

Try plugging it into the back USB ports.

Also, make sure your USB ports are working correctly in your device manager.

Not recognized by PC

First off.. Make sure your software and drivers are up to date...

Second, try re-installing Windows Media Player or if you have WMP 10 installed, try upgrading to WMP 11.

Also, if you plug in something else to your USB port, does the PC recognize it? Or, if you try your GoGear on another computer, does it work ok?
