MP3 Player not recognized as being connected to USB port
I have 4 USB 2 ports satisfactorily connected to a printer, a scanner, an external hard drive and an old iRiver MP3 player (powered by AA battery). My problem is when I tried to connect each of two separate new MP3 players (each with internal rechargeable battery), the battery charges up and the player believes it is connected, but my XP computer only recognizes the presence of these MP3 players, but apparently cannot find the proper driver, as I get the device listed in the device manager, but only with a yellow question mark. The "Found New Hardware" wizard can never find the driver and "cannot install this device," even when I try to remove the driver and repeat the process.

Install the Windows driver included in the product package
before connecting your Sylvania MP3 player. Insert the included driver
CD into your CD-ROM drive and run the setup file if it does not load
automatically. This driver makes sure your computer can recognize and operate the Sylvania MP3 player.
Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Sylvania MP3 player.
Insert the other end of the same USB cable into the USB port on the computer.
Wait for the computer to recognize the Sylvania MP3 player as
a connected device. Open your file manager or browser to locate the
Sylvania MP3 player as a drive or connected device if your computer does
not prompt you automatically.
Open the file folder containing the MP3 or WMA digital music files you wish to download to your Sylvania MP3 player.
Drag and drop the file or folder icons of your desired
digital music onto the Sylvania MP3 player device icon. Drag and drop
the digital music into open folders within the Sylvania MP3 player
device icon as well.
Also try the second port on the back, try a USB stick with some songs on it, to see if the USB ports are working. If the USB stick works, Could be the format the External unit is formatted in. Using FAT32 is recommended, look in the manual (downloadable form numark.com) for supported formats. Preferrable an external HD, which has its own power supply, not fed by the USB ports on the IDJ2 (max 0.5 A)
sometimes usb hard drives will not work through a usb hub.
if the drive works connected to the laptop but not the hub then that's how you'll have to use it.
it's also possible the laptop cannot power both the hub AND the drive, in whaich case you'll need a powered hub (one you plug in to the mains).
I have the same issue. I have 4 Simpletech Signature 250GB drives. They all worked fine at first. After about six months two of them started connecting at USB 1 speeds. It occurs on 4 different computers!!! The post about it being the computer assumes is wrong. How can it work fine for six months and then suddenly change. Also it occurs on different computers. I have submitted a tech support request with simpletech and will post the results.
Hello, Did you try to use this drive on another computer? Did you have the same problem? Did you try using a different cable? I would try these things first in order to determine if the problem is with the drive or with the computer. Good Luck! Dr. Know
