My transcend Ipod is not getting detected in the computer


Hi, when an pm3player does not detect on your PC, usually when Drivers that corrupted..
How to rectify the problem:

Connect the mp3 player to the PC
The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery charging or full.

- If the player does not turn on try other USB ports or on another computer if one is readily available. Ensure you are connecting directly to the computer USB port and not to a USB hub.

- If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up in as a storage device in an explorer window, then the screen is just not working.

If you receive the error "USB Device Not Recognized" on the computer, the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.

Check under Device Manager

1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage.


2. Click Device Manager on the left pane.


NOTE: MP3 Players can connect to your computer in MSC or MTP mode. Exceptions are mp3 player Connect and mp3 player Express which only use MTP mode. MTP mode is the recommended and default method for mp3 Players when used with Windows OS.

The mp3 player will show up on Device Manager's right pane as:
1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC)
2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode)

If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers.


Refresh the drivers

1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall.

2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.

NOTE: If a device with yellow exclamation point (!) continually appears and disappears, then the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.


Hope it helped.

Good luck to you.

I cant get in my computer but its showing in device manager


As you tell the device in can only be detected in the device manager.
It can not be seen as a removable disk in MSC mode and neither in MTP mode, showing as media player with the Sans icon.

Consult next page about 'player not being recognized':
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/42/kw/manager/r_id/101834
Refresh the drivers or manually ad the driver for the player as described.


Sansa manual for e200 series (version 2):
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/downloads/um/e200v2_userguide_en.pdf

Important:
1. Check the system requirements of the computer as described in the manual on page 8 of the file [=page 5].
2. Charge the device using an USB connector directly to the computer,
not through a hub or card reader, preferred at the back side.

If more help is needed, just post a comment.

Can't drag and drop to from explorer to mp3 player


Check if the player was detected by the computer..

to check: go to device manager
right click my computer go to hardware tab and click device manager and scan for hardware changes.

a baloon will pop up if the device was already detected by the pc
however if it still not detected you must install the firmware of your device, or its driver so that you can browse its content.

Device manager wont detect my gogear HDD1630/17 even though i recently updated the software and driver, also my device is frozen on "Please connect player to pc". I can't even get it back to the menu...


I was experiencing this similar problem, and from my research so were alot of other people, what finally worked for me was this:

  • Update all the software on your computer via Phillips site
  • Open the Philips Device Manager
  • With the device connected and the 'connected to pc' screen showing on the GoGear, do a 'soft reset' by holding the Power Off + Volume Up buttons for a few seconds
  • As soon as the device restarts itself, hold the Volume Down button, the computer should now recognize the GoGear
  • Follow the onscreen directions to Repair the device
  • Thank the intarwebs.
