Alright it seems that alot of people are or have had problems with this thing, I had given up on it for a while now and was just gonna get a new one but I'm trying to fix it through this place to see if I can get some reults. I tried to install the latest version of firmware and that went ok, now when I connect it to my computer it either says MTP Connected and shuts off or it says MTP connected then dont disconnects and then shuts off, any help would be greatly appreaciated.

My recording has just disappeared after looking with zero size.

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.

Sony Walkman NWZ-E438F connects & disconnects itself from USB

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 properly.
  • 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.
  1. Click Start and then click Control Panel .
  2. In the Control Panel window, click Performance and Maintenance .
  3. In the Performance and Maintenance window, click System .
  4. In the System Properties window, click the Hardware tab.
  5. On the Hardware tab, under Device Manager , click the Device Manager button.
  6. In the Device Manager window, click the plus (+) sign in front of Disk drives .
  7. Click to select the Sony USB device .
  8. From the menu, click Action and then click Uninstall .
  9. In the Confirm Device Removal box, click OK .
  10. Disconnect the portable player from the computer.
  11. 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.

Need to mp3 out of mtp mode and into usb mode need help

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. 5 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

Problem with mp3

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.

MTP Connected but not Accessible

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.

Creative zen v plus

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

Switch from MTP to USB

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.

MTP Error

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!!!!!

Disconnecting player while in MTP mode

It is not designed to show up as a Removable Disk in MTP mode, therefore it wont show up in the Safely Disconnect Menu.

If you are using Windows Media Player to transfer, as soon as the SYNC is complete, it says "ok to disconnect". You can disconnect without any problems.

If you are using Rhapsody, or the Best Buy Digital Music Store, you can right click on the device in the Sources Menu and select Disconnect.

Best of Luck,

Problem with drag and drop

(FOUND THIS SOLOUTION ON AFTERDAWN.COM) 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!
