Make sure you have media player 11
If you can, the best test is to try your player with another PC, to see if you still have the problem. This localises whether the problem is with the PC (most likely the USB) or the player. See the link below (search on "connection problems") for a lot more troubleshooting on this.
Download recovery tool off creative's website.
go to my computer > click on hardware tab >
click on device manager button > in the is next screen on the bottom should have>>universal serial bus controllers
(write these down just in case it cant find them)
right click on them and uninstall
reboot let windows reinstall them

Also told Microsoft hotfix causes this problem try uninstalling the last hotfix
If that doesn't fix it try the USB cable
good luck

How to set 100hz or Motionflow/Trumotion Effect on Panasonic 42X20 Plasma or...


To those who want to have the Motionflow/Trumotion effect on this Plasma Flat Panel TV or similar models, do the following:

1. Set your media player / source (PS3, Xbox 360, Western Digital Media player, Apple TV, etc) at 720p@50hz / 1080i@50hz / 1080p@50hz.

Note: not all player supports 50hz read your source manual if your source/media player can support 50hz

2. Go to the TV's menu and select Setup

3. Select Other Settings

4. You will be able to change refresh rate to 100hz for a Motionflow/Trumotion effect that they have on LCD/LED (if you don't see the 100hz setting that means your source is at 60hz not 50hz)

Note: 100hz refresh rate is different from 600hz subfield drive.

ON MY SLICK MP3 PLAYER ,WHEN PLUGGING IT INTO A DESKTOP , WHEN TRYING TO DELETE A CERTAIN FOLDER , A POP UP STATES .. ERROR DELETING FILE OR FOLDER , A BIG X THEN SAYS CANNOT DELETE FILE CANNOT READ FROM...


This sounds like you've got one of three things happening:

1 - Your USB cable is dying slowly. Over time connections become seperated within the cable. This causes data loss and all sorts of funny errors. Try a different cable and see if that helps.

2 - Your USB plug is malfunctioning or underpowered. If you are attempting to use a USB 2.0 device on a 1.1 connection, errors may prevent you from doing what you want to do. Try a different USB port, see if that helps.

3 - Your MP3 player has a setting somewhere locking files to the device itself. If windows tries to delete a locked file, you will receive an error. Browse through the manual of your device or the settings on the device itself and see if there's a lock or protection or USB mode somewhere.

Because you're getting the "cannot read from source or disk" error, I am strongly geared towards #1. Get yourself a new cable and see if that doesn't solve the problem.

I had a similar problem with my Sansa MP3 Player... It wouldn't recognize the device until I had installed Windows Media Player 10 or higher... Once I upgraded, it started recognizing the MP3 Player.

Are you running Windows? And below Windows Media Player 10?

My thing that hooks up from the mp3 to the computer wont work or somthing every time i plug it in it doesnt charge and the computer doesnt aknowledge it also i cant open up the phillips mp3 on my computer


If it's a standard cable, it's a USB to mini USB cable. Have you tried a different cable with similar ends? Also, have you tried a different USB port on your computer?

You may have to format it. Plug the device into a usb, goto "my computer" find the device listed, right click on the device and select format. A window will pop up , just click OK. The device should work now.

Sansa M230 not seen in Explorer or Windows Media Player


We had the same problem with Windows XP. We found some help on the Sandisk web site. On the device go to the Settings menu, then USB. We changed from AutoDetect to MSC mode and everything is working again. Our computer saw all of the songs on our computer fine. Some of the old songs on the Sansa didn't show up on the detect list in Windows Media Player, but they were still on the device.
