    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.

Computer doesn't recognized the mp3


this could be a vista compatability issue.
if you have driver or installation cds with the players, try installing any software.
also try a different usb port on the computer, as the port may have already assigned itself, for other devices.
try looking in the device manager, to see if the computer detects the device. but has problems or issues. usually a yellow triangle or exclamation mark.
Finally connect the device, and use ( Add new Hardware Wizard )

thankyou for using Fixya.

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

I cant install nextar mp3 to the computor

Did you go into device manager and uninstall the mp3 player off of your compputer and the reinstall it? If not try that go into control panel then go to hardware then go to the button that says view installed hardware the go to uninstall device! Then reinsert the mp3 player back into your computer and try again. Also if you are not already try upgrading to the latest version of windows media player most mp3 players will malfunction if you do not have at least windows(R) media player 10 although 11 is the newest version available.

Nextar ma570 mp3 player wont turn on

I had the same problem happened on my MA570. I finally find that it is easy to be fixed.
The problem is the lost of the Drive software in the MP3 unit for whatever reason. Use the mini CD that comes with your MA570 when you buy the player in the package. Put this mini CD into the PC. PLug your MA570 through the USB with the PC as a removeable device. Clikc the install software on the mini CD and install it into your MP3 player (for example device F:). After you have the new driver installed, you will be able to turn on the MA570 again. Let me know, if this still not work. It works for me.
