Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

1 Answer

MP3 Player My new MP3 player installation CD is not compatible with Windows Vista and I was wondering if there is a way I can download something to install my MP3 player I just bought my computer. It is an emachine. I just bought my MP3 player and the disk won't do anything when I put it in. My player comes on but keeps saying no file on it when I hit play. I have no idea how to get music on it or how to have my computer recognize it. Please help. Thankyou!

There are two possible options (these are not guaranteed to work):
1) Go to www.microsoft.com, enter your mp3 player model number in the search tab and see if a new driver has been developed for this device to make it compatible with Vista
2) With your mp3 player plugged in to the computer, go to Start --> Control Panel --> Systema nd Maintenance --> Device Manager
3) Find your mp3 player on the list and double-click the device; click on driver tab and then update driver - select the option that allows you to search the computer AND the internet for the driver (make sure you are connected to the internet BEFORE selecting this option); if you do not see your exact mp3 player name on the list, look for a similar looking name on the list such as "MTP Device"; also, look for devices with a yellow exclamation mark next to them - this is a sign of a device needing a repair or driver update

    Don't give up yet. Download the software you need from the Philips website:

    www.usasupport.philips.com

    Enter your model number

    On the next page, click on your exact model number without the "B" on the end

    On the next page, click on "software and drivers"

    I can't believe you have the f--- nerve to rate me inappropriate after not even asking me one time for clarification. I don't like people like you!

There is not a driver - not only is this player not compatible with Vista, plugging it into a Vista computer will ruin it permanently

My computer don't found my mp3


The HDD1630 is only compatible with Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10.

If you have Windows Media Player 11, unistall it to roll back to version 10.

Install and run the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

Connect the HDD1630 to the power supply and connect to the PC.

The MP3 player should show as an MTP device. There should be a connection icon on the player screen.

Start Windows Media Player, and select the SYNC option to transfer music.

RCA mp3 player software won't install on my computer.


You don't need the installer- Windows Media Player will find the device, then click on "Sync" at the top to download the music to your player.

Philips Go Gear MP3/Video Player 2 GB (Model SA3125)


The Phillips Go Gear is not compatible to Windows Vista, and there is nothing one can download to make it compatible. I contacted Phillips, and they said that there are no plans to update the software so that it works on Vista. Pass this to everyone that is having a similar problem. Contact Phillips on their website, and request that the Phillips Go Gear software be updated to include Windows Vista. If more people raise a stink (especially threatening never to buy Phillips products), maybe something will be done.

I tried to get vista to download the driver, and it said none was available for the Fuxion Genie. Their site only has XP drivers.

Media Explorer Isn't Working


This maybe because the software isn't compatible for your operating system. If your operating systems something like Windows Vista that may be your problem, because not many things are compatible with it.

You could try going to Creatives website http://uk.europe.creative.com/support/downloads/ and looking for your mp3 player and software. The link above goes directly to the download location, so just choose your mp3 player ect.. and then download the correct software, which hopefully should work.

Depending where your from choose the country/region in the top right once your on the site.

MAKE SURE YOU REMOVE THE SOFTWARE YOU INSTALLED PREVIOURSLY BEFORE INSTALLING THE NEW ONE.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.
