· Make sure you have media player 11
· If you can, the best test is to try your player with another PC, to see if you still have the problem. This localises whether the problem is with the PC (most likely the USB) or the player. See the link below (search on "connection problems") for a lot more troubleshooting on this.
· Download recovery tool off creative's website.
· go to my computer > click on hardware tab >
click on device manager button > in the is next screen on the bottom should have>>universal serial bus controllers
(write these down just in case it cant find them)
right click on them and uninstall
reboot let windows reinstall them

My computer won't read the new camera I've got. Even after installing all info from cd. Have tried camera and it works on tv. It won't let recognise the device on problem either. What can I do?

A camera that works connected to a TV without software is not the proper device to connect to a computer. Check again with your packaging and instructions.
Having a camera working on the computer and then porting the video signal to a TV monitor is the preferred arrangement.
Install the software, reboot, then connect a PC camera, it should be recognized and be testable on Skype, etc.

MP3 player won't power up. I was listening to it and it just went off. Thought battery went dead but tried recharging. Nothing happens when I try to power it up. It's a Phillips Model...

Hi ronnie641,

Here is the Support Site for the Philips GoGear Vibe:

You can find FAQ's, as well as instructions on how to perform a Repair (see below). A Repair will restore the device as well as update the firmware.

If you have any additional questions, you can reach Philips Consumer Care @ 1-888-744-5477 - an agent can also guide you through the process.

Hope this helps!


Use a pen tip or other sharp object to insert the RESET hole gently on the side of the player and connect it again to your PC.

If it is still not recognized, your player may be at fault. Try the Philips Device Manager software.

NOTE: Contents will be removed by using the repair function.

  1. Install the Philips Device Manager and run it with your player connected to your PC. You can download it under the Software & drivers section.
  2. Click the Repair tab in the Device Manager, press and hold the corresponding recovery key on the player when connecting it to your PC.

  3. Follow the PC screen to recover your player.

You can find the recovery key on your player from the below table.

Sony Walkman NWZ s616f is not recognized by Media Player anymore

I have a Sony NWZ-S638F and this just happened to me - I think a registry clean up utility did it but in could have been a Norton 360 reinstall too. I am not technical but I stumbled on a solution.

I realised that something had gone wrong when connecting the player's USB cable I heard a triple bong instead of the usual upward double bong. The computer was recognising a connection but the device could not be found anywhere - believe me, I searched.

The device manager for the player said "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)"

Anyhow, I tried system restores which didn't work. I tried reloading the software from the Sony DVD which didn't work. Finally, I decided to uninstall the driver through frustration and partly because I thought it low risk as the player is meant to be plug 'n play and I've got the DVD so if all went bad I should be able to reinstall and be no worse off.

I went to Device Manager, selected + at Portable devices, double clicked Walkman NWZ-S...etc selected the driver tab and clicked the uninstall button. I then connected the player using its USB cable and heard the upward double bong. Eureka. After following the on-screen instructions for a new device and it works just fine.

Hopes this helps.

Philips GoGear SA6045/97 connection with pc problem.

You need to get the product key for Windows from your friend. The days when you can just load an OS from any CD an unlimited number of times is over. Microsoft Genuine Validation requires that you have a Product Key, and you STILL may have to call Microsoft to validate your copy, if Microsoft registers that an OS has been loaded from a single CD too many times.

Help! Devices show as working, but "not detected" when opened

You could try to go into the registry and remove the usb enumeration folder "USB" .HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\ change permissions for it to be able to remove it. When you restart your computer all usb devices will be recognized and installed again. Let me know if this helps or not.

Uninstalled my network adapter by accident

If you can go online, your network device is installed properly, or at least good enough.

NVIDIA drivers have an uninstall option, they never need to be deleted manually. If you need to install older drivers that may work better for an older game, the installation automatically removes your current drivers that are installed.

Toshiba Satellite Laptop DVD Player

It sounds like the DVD player software is defaulting to an external monitor connection for the DVD video output. Try installing a different player or reinstalling/reconfiguring the one provided.
