I know that it is not the connection on the unit, nor the usb port. USB port works fine, and the connection on the unit also works fine as the charger too. I bought a new data link cable thinking that it was the cable, not the case. Computer doesn't recognize unit anymore when connected. Was doing so for months, then it stopped. Please help!
windows media player doesn't recognizethe mp3 is plugged in. But the computer recognized it and shows the name of it and everything. Since windows media player doesn't recognize it for some reason I can't sync the music. Is there another way to sync music to mp3 besides windows media player?
Re: Computer doesn't recognize unit when connected
I had the same problem where I accidently removed the player from the computer while the files were transfering. When I pluged it into my computer, it said that the device had a malfunction. Take the battery out of your mp3 player for a few days. I did and now I am able to transfer music to my mp3 player.
Re: Computer doesn't recognize unit when connected
I am guessing there is a problem with the driver for the audio player. I have a Coby Audio Player MP-C827, and one day my brother decided to just remove it from the computer without correctly stopping it. Ever since, whenever I plug in it into my PC, it just does not open...nothing happens. And I don't have the cd to re-install the driver files. With respect to all of the above, a driver file which is needed by the mp3 is either damaged or corrupt. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

1. Confirm the USB port on the computer you are connecting your printer to is being recognized by your computer. The easiest way to do this would be to plug a known good USB Memory stick into the USB port you want to use. If you can read the contents of the USB Memory stick then the port should work. Remove the Memory stick, start the printer installation program (Make sure you don't the printer connected), want until the setup program tells you to connect the printer before you attach the Printer's USB cable.
If the printer isn't recognized try a different USB port, when picking a new USB port to try select a higher priority port, for example in increasing priority from, an external USB hub, a powered external hub, a monitor based hub, USB ports on the front of the computer, up to the USB ports at the computer rear. For USB ports on the same circuit select an USB 2.0 before an USB 3.0 port
If you camera is not detected when connected to your computers USB port what you can try here first is to connect the camera on a different USB port and make sure the connections and usb cable is fine, and if your computer is a desktop you can try connecting the the camera on the back USB port of your computer and see if that will be fine.
But if still not working I will suggest you try connecting the camera on different computer and also if possible use a different USB cable and reinstall the camera software if you have the setup disc for it.
Here's what you can do since this is a USB wireless adapter, first connect the USB adapter on a different USB port on the computer better if you connect it on the back USB port of the computer tower and check if the computer will recognize it and if its recognize you can already continue with the software installation , but if not you can restart first the computer and check if the adapter will be recognized if still not the next thing to do here just to know if the adapter is good or bad is to connect it on a different computer and just to check if it will be recognized once its connected to a USB port , because a device should be automatically will be recognized by a computer once you connect it so if its still not recognized by a different computer adapter is bad...
You may have used a different USB port on the computer. Try a different one.
Generally, any USB port would work, except that some devices create a "Virtual USB" connection that is configured with a specific USB port.
I had a problem like this -- tried plugging the camera in to the rear USB slots not the front ones and it worked fine.
I think that it doesn't like going via a USB hub, but wants a direct connection. All of the USB ports on my computer are connected direct to the motherboard (i.e. none are on PCI cards or anything), but looking at the hardware info for the computer, it looks like the motherboard has a few "direct" USB connections, and then an on-board hub which the front ports connect to. If your computers are the same, that would explain things. I'd suggest trying each USB port one at a time (turn the camera off before plugging in, and back on when in) and see if one of them works. Wouldn't hurt to power the camera from the mains at the time too.
I had the same problem and was going crazy trying to figure this out, but I found that I had installed the GPX mw3816 on my bottom USB port and was trying to plug it into the port above it, because I had plugged another unit into the bottom port, but I switched the ports and it immediately installed. This is another reason, I am thinking of dumping windows and moving to a MAC. Peace!
