My Ali mp3 player is not recognized

My 1-gig Ali mp3 player is not recognized when I connect it to the USB port of my computer

    I have an Ali 512M Mp3 player and it is not recognized by my Mac or PC

  • Jeff_Lynn Mar 02, 2009

    My 1GB ALi Corp., Firmware Version: V0.90.05, Serial #
    00000000000000101000101410066790 mp3 player is recognized by my
    computer as a 'Portable Media Player' and 'Audio Player'. I exported
    mp3 music files from my computer to it with no problems. I had to
    reformat my drive and reinstall WIN XP so I lost the original mp3's. I
    now want to import them from the mp3 player back to my computer, but
    the files are not seen by my computer. The explorer window reports it
    as a 'Type: generic hierarchical' and it also reports the total size/free space in the device. Any ideas on how to retrieve the data from the player would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Jeff

(windows xp) Open the Device Manager in the Control Panel, locate the Audio Player/MTP Device (should be under Portable Devices).
Right click it and select Update Driver and select the option to browse manually, press Next and select Choose Manually from a list.
Once there you should have two lists (one with manufacturers and one with devices).
The ALiCorp manufacturer should be chosen by default, if not try to locate it (if it does not exist you need the drivers!)
Important! select USB MASS STORAGE DEVICE from the Device list and NOT AUDIO PLAYER / MTP DEVICE!
Press next/install and let it finish, now you should be able to transfer mp3 files to you audio player using your favorite sync software or manually dragging the files in to the correct device in the my computer folder.

The names for the buttons etc may not the correct as my OS language is not english and I assume you have some basic understanding of computers, this solutuion worked for me and some friends who also bought ALiCorp mp3 players (they are really cheap)
This may also work with other storage devices.

A problem I have also had is the FILE SYSTEM error when trying to play songs, I fixed this by changing the battery to an older one (my mp3 player hates new batteries for some reason)

The best thing you can do to avoid things like this is get a proper mp3 player and dont buy this cheap ****, save up cash for a proper one with USB rechargnig as it will save you money in the long run, stay away from alicorp since everything they make is total **** and incompatible with everything (personal experience).

Hope this helps people and sorry for the english but it is my third language.

Computers don't recognize mp3 player


It's hard to help very much without knowing what kind of MP3 player it is but for starters you should:
1. Fully charge the device and then try plugging it in again
2. If that doesn't work try a different USB cable and/or different USB port on your computer.
Some players also have a reset button you could try.

Speedo MP3 pink 1 gig. When I plug into my Mac (yes, Mac hooked to power source; yes, plugged directly into the Mac's USB) I continually get a message saying I've ejected incorrectly. Then shortly...


It probably means your usb connection is loose. You can try another usb port on your mac, if that is better then the usb port you usually use is bent or has a loose connection, if not the problem is likely the MP3 player's usb.

You could try putting a small amount of weight on the MP3 Player while its plugged in to improve connection. While it is plugged in, use your finger to lightly move the device up or down and hold gently. If the connection improves, use a small weight to hold device in that spot. If you are pushing down put a small box on top of the device, if you are pushing up, gently wedge something underneath drive.

Hope this helps.

Hi, smpk4083 mp3 player not recognized by the computer
Why is my smpk4083 mp3 player not being detected by my computer when I connect it?

This may be caused by one of the following:
1. Minimum system requirements were not met.
2. Corrupted drivers.
3. Computer restrictions.
4. Power issue.

To resolve this issue, try the following solutions:

SOLUTION 1 - For brand new player or first time connecting to this computer.

For Windows XP users: verify the following operating system requirements are met.
- Windows XP SP2 or higher
- Windows Media Player 10 or higher

Download and install the latest Windows Media Player if it's not installed.

For Windows Vista users: If the player is seen in My Computer when using MTP mode, but not showing in Windows Media Player.
- Download the hotfix from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939211.
- Run the hotfix.

For MAC users, see smpk4083 mp3 player not recognized by a MAC OS

NOTE: If you are trying to connect to a Computer at work that is part of a network, there may be user right restrictions that are set to disable access to new hardware or stop any program installations. You may need to check with your IT administrator to see if this is causing the problem.


SOLUTION 2 - Refresh the driver

STEP 1 - Connect the smpk4083 mp3 player to the PC
The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery charging or full.
- If the player does not turn on try other USB ports or on another computer if one is readily available. Ensure you are connecting directly to the computer USB port and not to a USB hub.
- If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up in as a storage device in an explorer window, then the screen is just not working.

If you receive the error "USB Device Not Recognized" on the computer, the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.

.

STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager
1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage.
Image
2. Click Device Manager on the left pane.
Image

NOTE: smpk4083 mp3 Players can connect to your computer in MSC or MTP mode. Exceptions are smpk4083 mp3 player Connect and smpk4083 mp3 Express which only use MTP mode. MTP mode is the recommended and default method for smpk4083 mp3 Players when used with Windows OS.

The smpk4083 mp3 player will show up on Device Manager's right pane as:
1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC)
2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode)

If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers.


STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers
1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall.
2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.

NOTE: If a device with yellow exclamation point (!) continually appears and disappears, then the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.


Hope it helped.

Have a nice day,.

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.

My mp3 is not connecting with my computer


Try connecting through a different USB port. It does not like going through a hub and I discovered that the two USB ports in the front of my computer won't recognize the player, but when I connect to any of the ports in the back, it connects fine and recognizes the device.

Usb port problem


This would indicate to me that your MP3 Player might be bad. Have you tried to connect your MP3 player to another computer to see if it works on that computer?

My computer doesn't reconize my mp3


check if your usb cord if defective.

To check if the mp3 is recognized by the computer go to device manager in the compuer properties.

Go to device manager go to hardware tab and search for new hardware, if you see a question mark in the usb port it means that the computer cant recognize it and you may need a driver. Some mp3 have cd installer of its software. Install it in your computer. and try if the computer can recognize it.

also check if your usb port is working properly...
