    I have windows xp so like it said, it should work without installation being required however,when i put my mp3 in, nothing happened. The first time, it said the system was not compatible and then failed to work afterwards. I then tried installing it but it said the installation was interupted, therefore the installation was a failure.

A lot of people have been complaining about this particularproduct.First of all, you have to format the player, but theinstruction manualdoesn't even mention this..
Plug one into the usb port and wait for it to detect. Then go to My Computer, and right click on the drive and Format.
You should now be able to copy songs over, although Protected mp3's WILL NOT PLAY ON THIS PRODUCT!!!
Unbelievable, I know, in this day and age..
Almost makes you want to download and install Soulseek and download 'normal' versions of the mp3's, doesn't it? Because they will always play in your mp3 player?
So first format the thing. The rest is up to you ;)

Hope this helps ;)

Plugged in usb cable and it pops up found new hardware, but keeps trying to find driver....I bought three of these for my kids...two worked fine this last one does not work at all..HELP!!

I hope you aren't connecting them all to your computer at once. If that is the case, connect them one at a time and see for yourself the amazing results!

But of course, that's me being a pessimist. Use the same USB outlet for all 3 mp3 players, make sure it's the same cable too. That's to eliminate any possible problems with other USB outlets. Hopefully all 3 work, if not then update your USB drivers. Any free online driver checking program can update drivers.

If the one still doesn't work, call up Nextar and arrange with them to fix your player. You still have that 90 day warranty, eh?

I have a 1GB Nextar MP3 player that's only been used a few times. I loaded the driver in my computer. When I plug the device into to USB port, it says unknown device and I can't load any songs from my...

You need to install it as a usb mass storage device. by doing this just plug it in, and when it comes up at unknown device. right click on 'my computer' then select 'manage' this will open up the computer management window. Click on the 'Device manger' you will then look for your nextar mp3 player device, it will be marked as audio device with a yellew question mark by it, just right click that icon, select properties -> select the driver tab-> click on the update driver -> select the 'yes, now and everytime I connect a device' radio button. click next. select 'Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)' radio button. select next, on the next screen, select 'Dont search. i will choose the driver to install' button. Click next, you will see a list of devices on this screen, you are going to select 'USB Mass Storage Device" then select next. At this point you will see the drivers being installed. After that you will be able to use your Nextar MP3. Just click and drag your mp3 from your pc to your nextar.

I hope this helped.

I already install the hardware but still the computer cant find it...

first change the USB location ...cause sometimes they need a different kinda USB port ...that if it still doesn't find it ...go to control panel ...,on add new hardware and run the wizard will prompt you with a question to wich you will answer that you already connected the new device..but is not installed yet ..
it will search for all the devices and show you what it found ...after that ..if your software is already installed....choose to run the installation automatically should find the driver and work....
the other issue is that without driver ...your mp3 should have been seen already into my computer as a removable storage device ...and you should have been able to remove and add data on it ....
if it still not working ...leave me a message here ...and I will see what can be wrong ...Good luck !

Nextar MA933A MP3 Player ?

you can download the driver @ for Nextar MA933A. However it seems you only need the driver for it if you are using windows 98 or windows 200 prior to SP3. At the link above you can also download the manual, and read the FAQ section.

hope this helps.

Many people sow the Nextar T30 as not being shown on their PC just as mine did. I found that, the USB port on the T30 is very very tight and even when you have the mini USB in enough to charge the device it doesnt always read it. You have to push the plug in until it snaps in place. You will see no metal on the mini USB plag showing at all once it is in all the way.

I first put the CD in that came with it, then I opened it and found the folder with the firmware update program and clicked on it to install because it also has the drivers. Once that was done I restarted my PC and then connected the USB plug in all the way until it snapped in place (be carefull could break it as it is too tight really). And now my player works every single time all of the time.

Hope this solves your problem like it did mine.

this means the driver isnt installed for the device.
first, try plugging it in, then goto my computer and look for 'removable device' that is where you will access the mp3's.
If all else fails, google 'nextar mp3 player driver'
good luck :D

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.
