My coby -mp 610-2g was hookup to my cpu and i


Having devices connected during reinstallation of the Operating System will lead to a faulty detection on the USB ports.
Connected devices will not be recognized.

How to get the USB ports functioning again:

>0. First disconnect all apparatus connected to the USB ports.

Step 1.1 will take a long time again, I'd prefer step 1.2:
1.1 Perform a new installation of Windows XP (the long way) or
>1.2 Delete all USB hardware in the Control Panel (the short way).

>2. Install the software for your device and perform an update.
Update Windows Media Player 11 and / or Coby Media Manager.

>3. Open the software WMP11 or the Coby Media Manager.
Connect the device and make a setup for connection in the
software you use.

When you need more help for software or hardware configuration, just add a comment.

Is there driver/ software for Win ME for the Sansa Clip mp3?

a friend told me that if the device shows as"connected" when hooked up (it does) AND the battery charges correctly (it does), then (a)the USB connection had enough juice; and (b) the PC recognizes it - i just had to FIND it. device manager/ MyComputer: nada; same for ANY file/ folder with "sansa" or "sandisk." working thru WMP (Windows Media Player), however, I discovered that drive E - for a portable hard drive, NOT currently connected via USB - was STILL showing up in the "Copy to CD or device" field. sure enough, it was the SanDisk clip player (even though it was NOT under the "Recognized Portable Devices" subsection). without using the installation disk at all, it downloaded tunes just fine. *note: the installation disk seemed to be an .exe file ONLY for the Rhapsody music service. as noted above, it was unnecessary. also - my USB ports are 1.1 and not 2.0, and package stated USB 2.0 was a "minimum requirement" - not true*

My XP system does not recognize Sandisk Sansa e260

The XP did not recognize the device because I used a after- marked USB expander board that did not provide enough power to the device. Plugging to the Motherboard - attached USB port solved the problem.

Ok when you hook it up and it says MTP just push and hold the Play pause key till it says Usb then it should recognize it .....
now mine recognizes it on both usb and mtp i have win xp pro ...  If you do this and it doesnt work 
If you are using Windows XP or Vista, make sure that the player is in the Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) mode. This can be done by pressing the M button. This button is located on the top of your mp3 player. Open Windows Media Player 10 or 11 and follow the directions for transferring (synchronizing) music. If you have Windows Media Player 9 on your XP machine, upgrade to Windows Media Player 10 or 11. This can be done by visiting
If you are using Windows 98SE, Windows ME, or Windows 2000, you will only be able to transfer music using the USB transfer mode. Open Windows Media Player 9, and follow the directions for transferring (synchronizing) music.
If you have version 9 on Windows 98SE or Windows ME, you will need to visit the Download Center for updated drivers.

Usb not recognized on sansa e280 (sandisk)

Unfortunately, so simple - although this simple solution does not appear in any manual. the solution: put your Sansa in the rear USB - and the PC immediately recognizes the MP3 or MP4. The USB soccket in the front of the PC does not have enogh power, and when using the rear USB port - it works!

Cannot chage YP-K3 player

The usb message has nothing to do with the ability of the unit to charge. It just means that the port on your computer is recognised as a USB 1.1 port.

It is more likely that the battery no longer holds a charge. The battery can be replaced but it is difficult to open up the unit without damaging the casing. There are instructions on opening up the unit on youtube. Other than buying a faulty unit with a working battery I don't know how to get hold of the batteries. Be careful when replacing the battery. If it is connected the wrong way you will fry your unit.

Brand new Samsung YP-K3 charging FOREVER..

well have had my k3 die on me once, pressed reset on the back and it worked again (this in the it doing nothing anymore case) as for the cgarging thing try it on another computer, when I charge my k3 at work it charges all day but I don';t get a full battery, at home I charge it for bout 2 to 4 hours to get full battery. I think it has something to do with ho many things u have connected to ur usb ports or how much output ur computer gives to ur usb, maybe it goes to like a lower voltage to preserve electricity, no idea how to change this but unplug unneccecary things.
