Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have an accurian mp3 player (42-198 is the # on it) when i first plugged it into the computer to do the "4 hour charge", it said it was charging, but then when i turned it on, it would do the load screen, say "goodbye" and shut off... so i replugged it in, which took 15 tries to get it to connect... now it's frozen on a screen with a full green battery, a white little computer and a bar with a green dot in the middle... i've tried to hit the power button for 15 seconds like it said to do in the manual, but it won't work... it just stays on that screen... what do i do?
Hello Guys ... I got it solved !!! here's what I did:
1- Go to www.mymusix.com
2- clik on FAQ, then on 43-198
3- find the solution for this question :Q: When I turn on my player it says 'Error, connect to PC and use Device Manager to repair'., and click on link
4- Follow the instructions
If after following all the instructions, you still can't see the device on windows, click on downloads, then on 42-198, then download the mpt utility and run it, the do the above steps again
hpe this helps

Charging the player:
i've had a battery problem once.. but i realized that i did not completely turn it off so it was not charging correctly... every electronic item charges faster when its off..
ok so, you know when you leave it on to play and after the cycle is over the music stops? after a while in that "stop music" stage the mp3 player looks turned off... (it's like it's hibernating). before you recharge it always always turn it on and turn it off. that fixes the problem right away. I've had mine for over six months and no problems!!!
as for not getting it to pop up on the computer:
just go to the "my computer" icon and it should have it's own icon there under "other" and you'll see the little icon. must i say.. click on it?
to download music on it:
you can't just copy and paste the music you want into the music folder... the mp3 player will separate and organize it for you..
you should have windows media player.. pop in whatever cd and ripped it into your media library.. then you should sync it with your mp3 player.
if you are downloading music from a site.. don't create any folders on the mp3 player (i know if would let you but DON'T).. just copy and paste the music into the main part of the folder (it's the window that opens after you click on " internal storage device"...
oook... that's all i see up there. have fun w/ da music playa cuz i am.
i'm so glad i didn't get an expensive apple.. i'm not going to pay $100 more just to customize the color!!!!

I had issues with mine where I would plug into the usb and nothing. not charging not showing up on computer, it was like it wasn't plugged in at all. I emailed tech support. they told me to send it in (Radio Shack had none in stock and did not know when more would come in so could not return it for a new one). I sent tech support the mp3 player and in about a week or two I received a new one but now this one has the problem where I at first I was able to load songs to it but now it won't let load or delete songs from the player. All I get is a device is busy or disconnected message. So now I'm back to emailing tech support.
From there website:
"Our goal is to provide the highest quality products, the best competitive prices, and long-term services to our customers. We have the skill, the technical know-how, the professionalism and the comprehensive manufacturing facilities that build on our reputation as digital audio pioneer.....Superior quality, Innovative and unique design, Competitive prices, Prompt delivery, Excellent post-sales services are our keys to success."
I agree they do have competitive prices and their customer service and tech support is very good but quality of product does seem questionable especially with all the problems that these particular mp3 players have been having. Hopefully they can find a way to fix these bugs.
Best solution would be contact their tech support:
