There can be many possibilities and fixes to this problem. If your PC is Vista Home Basic, many drivers will not be automatically installed. In this case, you must go to google and look for vista-compatible drivers for your phone. Just search something like "Razr V3c Vista Drivers".

The other problem could be and most likely is: the drivers arn't compatible with Windows Vista. Most of these phone programs were created before Vista was even announced, so they don't have compatibility. Again, search google or your phone manufacture's website for more updated drivers.

The last problem could be a bad connection between the phone and the PC, or the phone is already "registered" to your last PC, in which case you must take it to the store and get it "unregistered", but that is rare.

Just bought player dont no how to set it up on computer so i can put my msic on it

Hi MsRenee,

What type of music player have you bought? I'm assuming it's an MP3 player of some kind that attaches to the computer using a USB cable.

If it's Apple-based (iTouch/Phone/Pod), files are synchronised using iTunes installed on your PC.

If it's another product, you can simply attach the MP3 player, browse through the folders as if it were a USb drives and copy/paste the music into the appropriate folders. Some other players have their own applications/software to do so.

Was it a second-hand purchase without a manual? More details are needed so we can help you.

are you trying to copy music onto a cd disk or onto your ipod. If you are trying to copy music onto your ipod, you will have to clear the ipod of the music that was loaded onto it previously, because it will not detect your new settings on your laptop. An easy way to do this is copy over your itunes music folder onto cd/dvd from your old computer and paste the music into your itunes music folder on your laptop. When you open itunes go to file, import file, and choose your itunes music folder. (If it hasn't aready automatically picked the music up). This will put all of your music back into the itunes library. You will then need to create another playlist for your ipod. Reset your ipod in itunes mode and upload your new playlist onto it. If you have vista on your laptop then you may need to download the lastest version of itunes. You can do that by going here>
I hope this helps

Here is where to get the software for your Rio:

Rio went out of the Mp3 business before vista came around, so you may need to get in touch with Microsoft to find out if Rio can be made compat with Vista.
