If you have at Windows XP sp2

check your control panel/system/hardware\device manager setting.

You will probably have a yellow mark next to one of the settings delete the option with a yellow mark against it. Disconnect your mp3 player and reconnect it to get it to be recognised.

If you dont have the lastes software for your mp3 player download the latest firmware/software from the samsung support website and install it first. Then connect your mp3 player.

I too had the same problem. I am pretty sure it was because although I have Windows XP pro installed I don't have the XP service pack 2 installed. If you have a bonafide copy of XP pro I think you can download XP service pack 2 from the web. Unfortunately we could not download the service pack from the web as the person who sold us our computer had put a dodgy copy of Windows on it. What I had to do in the end was copy all my songs onto a friends laptop which is more up to date and then it was just a a matter of plugging the MP3 player into the USB hub (didn't even have to install the software) and copy and paste all the songs onto the MP3. I hope you have a friend with an up to date laptop or that you can download the service pack 2 from the net. After all this and finally having many songs on the player it worked for a bit but now I can't turn the darn thing on. Every time I plug it into my computer it lights up and says it is fully charged but once I unplug it, it has no response whatsoever when I try to turn it on. I am actually fed up with it and if you have a receipt and it is still under warranty I would try and take it back and get a more user friendly MP3 player.

Mp3 player not regonised

First of all, if you are attempting to plug this device in to the front usb port or to a usb hub, try plugging it directly in to one of the back usb plugs of your computer as this is going to be a true "usb 2.0" port. That is, of course, if your motherboard suports USB 2.0. As with most new devices, they are all usb 2.0 and only some will be usb 1.1 (the older version) compatible. As well, some usb players will have software that is not necessarily required to "see the unit" on the other hand, some do have device drivers that are required (as in the case of the toshiba and creative units), in order to utilize the built in software functions.

One other thing you can check for is the device manager (right click on MY COMPUTER and select PROPERTIES then click on HARDWARE tab and finally DEVICE MANAGER) Here you should see no "yellow" exclammation points which would be telling you of a device conflict. If you currently have your unit plugged in, you may notice the "unknown device" which would be your unit. By clicking on any item that has the exclamation and REMOVING it. Removing all devices with conflicts and then clicking on REFRESH (search for new devices) it should once again attempt to install the device. If you are still having troubles, I would be visiting the manufacturers website and reading any FREQUENTY ASKED QUESTIONS (faq's) regarding the device as well there are quite often updated device drivers available from the site in which you may or may not require.--------
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

My usb didnt work .. everytime i connect my usb comes said "usb did not recognized .. how can i fixed it .. i want my answer now

OK well simply totally remove ALL USB devices from PC & then remove all USB driver software from Device Manager, & also Uninstall the driver/software, then Reboot, wait a bit after reboot, and the system will be busy installing a NEW USB layer, NOW, INSTALL any software again that came with your unit. IF asked plug it in. If NOT DON'T. After the software has installed, reboot, now wait until at the desktop again NOW plug in your device should be detected and a dong-dong sound should be heard, now your device should show up in My Computer as a "Drive" and you should be able to work with it via the software you installed from the CD/DVD that came with your unit.

My computer says found new hardware but when it tryies to install it says there was a problem does a search and finds nothing. So i cant update the firm ware,i already formated the zen but it did nothing...

When you experience next making connection:
Connecting the device to the computer Wizard found new hardware pops up.
Only this time the Windows update searching for software will not work on automatic routine:
ending up with "Cannot Install this Hardware".

Manual performing the wizard, setting the device to USB connection type:
1. Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software ?
Select "No, not this time".
2. If your hardware came with an installation CD, or floppy disk, insert it now.
Select "Install from a list or specific location(Advanced)."
3. Please use your search and installations options.
Select "Don't search I will choose the driver to install."
4. Select the device driver you want to install for this hardware.
Select "USB Mass Storage Device."

Note: when using MSC mode always safely remove hardware, the players' removable disk. The icon in the right corner of the task bar.

Once the device can be reached in MSC mode it should be ready to install new firmware on the player:
1. Backup data on the player to the computer when not on the PC already.
2. Reinstall / update firmware from computer to the player: after this the device will have all the maps for writing data and it can be approached in MTP mode again, using application software like Windows Media Player 11.

Need more help, just post a comment.

PC will not detect my zune.

Hey!! I just fixed mine! I had recently installed drivers for a PS3 controller, and for some reason those were conflicting with the Zune.

To fix it, I went to add/remove programs, and then removed the libusb program, that fixed it instantly! Good luck!
