Charging player/downloading songs causes computer to crash.
I was trying to charge the mpo3 unit using the usb line and subminiture plug and within five minutes, my computer froze up. When I restarted the unit, my screen went blank. I took it to MicroCenter where I purchased it, and I was told that the I/O controller was fried. It there an alternative to charging the mp3 unit without plugging it into the computer's usb ports.

Yes the chord is the charging cable and the download/upload cable.
You will plug it into the usb port on your computer for charging.
You will need Windows Media Player installed in your computer ...after it is installed add your songs to Windows Media Player, then plug your Mp3 player in with Windowns Media Player running, your mp3 player will be recognized and then you can add the songs you added to Windows Media Player.

ensure the unit is chargeable using usb data cable, usb charger has only 2 out of 4 wires connected to the charger whereas when the cable is used as data cable all the 4 wires are connected and the device acts as a usb device, this may block the charging of the device due to internal circuit design within the device.
Run the Sansa Recovery Tool from Sandisks' website and start over from scratch. Usually this problem is caused by trying to transfer too many songs at once, but any number of Rhapsody errors could have caused this.
1.Check usb adapter cable. 2.Check whether the Mp3 player hold button is pressed 3.Reconnect usb cable to other slot 4.Reset default settings on the mp3 player 5.control panel-system-device manager-hardware-USb serial controllers. when the mpo3 player is connected.it might offer a dedicated serial port for the device. check for properties 5.Check IIRQ settings conflicted with any other device 6.if all the settings is normal then the problem with flash Ram present inside the mp3 player. the USB serial controller might be damaged
You might have a "bad" song? Try wipping the songs off and resyncing youre player. Also, for the charging problem. Are you charging it through your computer? I've found that these players charge ALOT better through an AC outlet. I hope this helps.
I don't have experience of your actual model, but I've had a similar thing happen to my Inovix MP3/4 player when it crashed (also crashing my whole computer!) and went completely 'dead'.
Plugging it into the USB port had no effect - no charge symbol and the computer didn't even acknowledge something was being plugged in.
Basically, I kept on trying every time I was on the computer! 2 days later, I plugged it in and 'ding-dong' Windows XP recognised something was in the USB port.
I then carried out a Firmware re-load using the supplied disc, and my player burst into life!
Firmware crashes are pretty common with various players, I believe. Depending on how old your player is, try the manufacturer's website to see if they've updated the Firmware.
