If you can listen to the recording, on the player, it must be a different format. Play the recording back whilst recording on your laptop, if your laptop has no internal microphone, buy an external one, for recording.
I suggest that you uninstall and reinstall the USB Driver to resolve the issue.
Follow these steps to uninstall the driver and confirm the player is recognized
This procedure must be performed while logged in as Administrator or to an
account with Administrator rights.
If you are using the Windows® XP operating system, you must have Service
Pack 2 or later installed.
Click Start and then click Control Panel .
In the Control Panel window, click Performance and Maintenance .
In the Performance and Maintenance window, click
In the System Properties window, click the Hardware tab.
On the Hardware tab, under Device Manager , click the Device
In the Device Manager window, click the plus (+) sign in front of Disk drives
Click to select the Sony USB device .
From the menu, click Action and then click Uninstall .
In the Confirm Device Removal box, click OK .
Disconnect the portable player from the computer.
In the System Settings Change box, click Yes.
After that, restart the computer and reconnect the Player to resolve the issue. USB Drivers are generic to the Operating System and will reinstall automatically after restarting the computer. I hope it works.
in the manual it says
Turn on the MP3 Player by holding the PLAY/PAUSE button.
2. Take the USB Cord and plug the corresponding ends into the MP3 Player and a Computer.
3. When connected the LCD Display will either say “USB” or “MTP”.
4. Press the “M” (mode) button to switch between “USB” and “MTP” mode.
“MTP” mode will only work, when your player is connected to Microsoft® Windows® XP and Windows® Media Player 10.
The MP3 Player will only work in “USB” mode when it is connected to Windows® 98SE, ME, or 2000 Professional.
is this helpful.Take your time sometimes these things don't work because you've missed out one step so go slow and try it two or three times before you give up
You can switch your player between USB and MTP mode only if your player is connected to Windows XP machine and Windows Media Player 10. When the player is connected to your Windows XP machine, pressing the M button on your player will switch your player between USB and MTP mode.
It is simple. Forget the MTP Mode. Simply put the player on, put it on hold, press and hold the record button while you plug in the cord. It will go into USB mode, the only thing is that you have to do that everytime. Hope this works.
i had the same problem but solved it, it seems that the usb driver does not always install with the software installation so you must install using the DEVICE MANAGER make sure first your mp3 player is connected, so ( copy & paste) your software to desktop, then go to CONTROL PANEL, then SYSTEM, then HARDWARE then DEVICE MANAGER, in device manager you should see ( zen v plus ) with a yellow question mark above it, which means the drivers are missing, click onto that and follow instructions to install the drivers which you will find in the software you have pasted to desktop. good luck, tony spain
I had this same problem and was able to solve it. Just go into Control Panel (make sure it's in Classic View)-> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager, right click the GPX icon under Protable Devices and then click unistall. Then disconnect and reconnect the player. Windows will automatically install the drivers and that's it, you can now go into USB mode again. Hope it helps.
When the YP-K3 2 gb device is plugged into the USB Port, the system
says "Found New Hardware, Samsung YP-K3" which then switches to "MTP
Device" and then fails on an MTP error. It seems to be searching for a
driver, and cannot find one. H E L P!!!!!

The problem is that this player have 2 standards for connecting to PC. One is MSC and other is MTP. Each one have different directories structure. If you put music when your player is connected as MSC, when you will conect as MTP you'll be not able to see the files uploaded previous. The same case is available when you write music files as MTP=> you can't see these files in MSC mode. So, set USB mode of your Sansa as MCS, power off, put hold switch to lock and connect to PC. You will see 3 directories: Audible, Records and Config (or something like that). See if your "invisible" music files are here. If they aren't connect as MTP. To connect as MTP: set USB mode to auto, shut down Sansa mp3 player, put hold switch to unlock and connect to PC. You will see only 2 directories now. Media and "something" (I can't remember now). Look for your "invisible" files and do what you want. MTP mode is for use with newer PC's. I advice you to use MCS mode all the time because is compatible with any PC (old or new). Good luck!
