When I bought this MP3 player, the company I bought it from said it was compatible with Window 2000. Turns out it works only with XP. It's a great unit and I don't want to take it back. One solution is I upgrade to XP, but I've heard I'm better off with 2000.
Is there a way I can still transfer songs over using 2000? When I connect the MP3 player to the computer via USB, the MP3 recognizes that it's hooked up, and the Unplug/Eject Hardware symbol comes on in the bottom corner of my screen. However, on My Computer and Windows Explorer, neither recognize that the MP3 player is pluggged into the USB port. Therefore, I cannot drag my files over using Windows Explorer. Any other options or ideas?

the reason its showing format error is because the songs you downloaded into it is not compatible with the player. For example, if the song you were suppose to download was to be in AAC format, and you put MP3 format, it will show format error because it does not recognize songs in Mp3 format but with AAC format.
Therefore, when you want to download songs into the Mp4 player, make sure the songs are in either WMA or MP3 Audio format. These audio formats are compatible with Mp4 player.
Also, if you want to download videos, make sure they are in MP4 format.
Try letting your computer do the work .. If you are operating on a pc use Window Media Player to sync and download music to your player... First put the songs into your library .. connect your mp3 player to your computer and see if the Windows Media Player recognizes it.... If it does you are in business... highlight what songs you want.... right click ....add.... sync list.. when you get the songs you want on yer list sync the mp3 player and your done... hope this helps
what operating system is your computer.XP is the operating system recommended but you need windows media player 10.If you have them both you can move/sync files thru Windows Media Player(WMP) but they have to have a drm licence.
If you've got Windows® 98SE, ME, or 2000 Professional.
5 just connect it, find My computer and you should see the player listed,double click and the files should be visible.
I would check your friend's operating system to see what he/she used and if any problems occurred.
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.
Mp3 repair services generally cost more than the player itself -minimum $229.00
Is the computer recognizing that you have an mp3 player plugged in? If not, 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.
If the pc does recognize the player, and it is not syncing, then the songs you are trying to load are in the wrong format, or your music service subscription has expired/doesn't have high enough rights.
