Vista + mp4 player= not working! help

I got this mp4 player for christmas, and I can't get my computer to recognize the device. I live with my friend and we share her computer, and she has Windows Vista (which I hate). I bought all of this music and downloaded it to my computer and can't get it on the player. Can anyone help me?

I have tried just plugging it in and the first time it said that it had downloaded all of the software needed, and then it wont read it. A message will pop up saying that the device has malfunctioned and that Windows can not read the device. Please help!

Unit should show up as "removable drive" in "Computer" folder if it doesn't check Administrative Tools/computer managment/disk management.If it's listed make sure it's online and has a drive letter assined to it.
Another similar problem arises when your connected to a network . THE UNIT AND THE NETWORK TRY TO SHARE A DRIVE LETTER. This can also be fixed in Disk manager just reassign another drive letter to the unit. DO NOT REASSIGN A NEW DRIVE LETTER TO THE NETWORK DRIVE.

I have exactly the same problem with Windows Vista. Every time that I want to put some new music into it, I have to find a computer with Windows XP. It apparently doesn't work with Windows Vista. The only solution that I found was finding other PC that doesn't use Vista.

I suggest finding a friend with an XP machine. Connect to that one, and if it works, it means Vista does not yet have the correct driver for this player. Dont expect a lot of success with video. Tons of people are not able to play video at all, eventhough it will download to the player fine.

Did you get a device driver CD along wit the MP4 player? If yes, then install the software before inserting the mp4 player to your computer.

I have mitone mp4 player (MITMP26) 4 GB . I have a problem. USB device don't see my computer. Windows 7 64 bit. Please help me.


Hi, player not recognized by the computer

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 Sansa 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 Sansa 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: Sansa MP3 Players can connect to your computer in MSC or MTP mode. Exceptions are mitone mp4 player Connect and mitone mp4 player Express which only use MTP mode. MTP mode is the recommended and default method for mitone mp4 player Players when used with Windows OS.

The mitone mp4 player 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.



SOLUTION 3 - Connect using MSC mode
Connecting in MSC mode will help determine if there is a problem with MTP mode or with the Auto Detect mode feature of the player. You can use Forced MSC mode or switch the player settings to MSC.


If the player is detected in MSC mode but not when set to MTP mode, try to update or reinstall the mitone mp4 player firmware

NOTE: mitone mp4 player Express and mitone mp4 player Connect do not have MSC mode. For mitone mp4 player Connect you can try reinstalling the firmware using the Connect Recovery Mode.

Additional troubleshooting notes:
If you have replaced the mitone mp4 player Player and you still have problems getting it to recognize in the computer, then you may need to try some additional troubleshooting.
- Try connecting on another computer.
- Try using a different USB cable
- Try connecting to the back USB ports which may supply better power.
- If only MTP mode is not working, try reinstalling Windows Media Player
For Windows XP try also download and install the MTP Porting Kit.

Hope that helped And please don't forget to rate me..

Have a nice day....

Mp4 player


This is the worst mp3 player ever invented - i have to tell you this up front. There is no driver, the company does not support the product anymore - I would return it now while you still can.

Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
