I have an etec 2.0 mini mp3 player m211, and recently I have experienced the same issues with windows media not being able to recognize the device. After trying many options, I discovered I could simply connect the device to another computer, and instead on synching song tracks as you would normally do, i simply went to the start menu, my computer, and located the E drive (removable usb drive), and drag /dropped the tracks stored in "my music" directly onto the E drive. After locating the E drive, you can do this by going to "my music", right click on the song track, click send to, select E drive, and its done! At least thats what worked for me as far as downloading song tracks ( dont know if you can do this for uploading as well, havent tried it) .... However unfortunately, this may not be valid info for those using any version older than XP... Good luck!

This is probably a cheap cable.  I have three ETec MP3 players that i purchased for my little kids. (No ipods for them :) ) and I found the same problem with each of them.  When I use the USB cable for my HP 50G it works.  I have not traced the leads to see if the pin outs are the same (I would think that with 4 pins, they should be the same or it may be the quality of the cable.  The thinner eTEC cable may be to thin to carry sufficient current to the device.  My 50G cable is noticeably thicker.

a) From another Vista system (copy it out of another Vista system and copy it directly into the C:\Windows\inf directory

Unable to access my 4 GB Transcend pen drive with Windows Vista Home Premium Edition. Able to access it with Windows XP successfully but always prompting "Unable t find driver" when tried with Vista

Here are the 3 possible solutions to this problem,

Make sure the you have the Service Pack 1 installed for you vista computer.
You can find it out by opening the run command and type "winver" (without quotes) there. If it's not showing SP1 please update Windows Vista to Service Pack 1 which includes the update to fix this problem as this was the problem when vista was launched but fixed with SP1.

If updating vista does not resolve the issue try the solution provided below:


Manually locate the driver within the Vista operating system. 

Microsoft Windows Vista may not find any driver for the device that is plugged in the USB port because the usbstor.inf (for MSC device) or wpdmtp.inf (for MTP enabled devices) is not present inside the C:\Windows\INF folder.  

To resolve this issue, you must copy the driver files to the C:\Windows\INF folder. 

Browse to the following folder:

1. C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository. 
2. Look for the folder that starts with usbstor.inf_. 
3. Copy all the files inside this folder to C:\Windows\INF. 
4. Disconnect and reconnect the device. 

If the problem still persists, try this Solution: 

Clear hidden devices and make changes to the Registry

First backup your registry by  following these steps,
1. Click Start 
2. Type regedit on the start search field, then press Enter. 
3. Click File then select Export. 
4. Under Export Range select All. 
5. Type in the desired name to be saved. 
STEP 2 - Remove Hidden Devices 
1. Click Start.. 
2. Type cmd on the start search field , then press Enter. 
2. Type set DEVMGR_SHOW_DETAILS=1 and press Enter. 
3. Type set DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1 and press Enter. 
4. Type start devmgmt.msc and press Enter. 
5. Device Manager window will appear  
5. Click View, then select Show hidden devices. 
6. Click + to expand Imaging devices, Unknown devices, and USB devices. 
7. Verify if there are any devices and unknown devices (including grayed out devices). Uninstall. 

STEP 3 - Remove all oem*.inf files 
1. Click Start. 
2. Type cmd on the start search field and press Enter. 
3. In the command line, type in the following commands and press Enter after each command: 
  cd \windows\inf 
  ren infcache.1 *.old 
  ren oem*.inf *.old 
  del C:\windows\setupapi.log 

STEP 4 - Remove entries under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB 

Remember,if you have a USB keyboard or mouse, do not remove the VID entry for these devices, otherwise, Windows may not restart correctly. 

1. Click Start 
2. Type regedit on the start search field, then press Enter. 
3. Click on the "+" symbol beside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE 
4. Navigate to \System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB. 
5. Highlight and delete all the VID_xxxx entries. 

Please note that if you have a USB keyboard or mouse, do not remove the VID entry for these devices, otherwise, Windows may not restart correctly. 

After this turn off your PC completely then with the PC turned off, plug the USB flash drive to a USB port and then turn on the PC. 
Now, a New Hardware Detected balloon will appear and the USB drivers will load automatically.

Please let me know if the problem persists.

Some songs downloaded on omnitech mp3 player won't play

Some of the Mp3 players require a particular directory structure.
If required, this directory structure is created automatically when you format the card in the player itself.
Make sure you take a backup before formatting the card as it will delete all data on the card.

After formatting, you may see few folders (unhide hidden files as well)
You need to transfer in one of these.
Also let me know how exactly transfer the songs if this does not resolve. If possible, also try giving few details.

Any idees?

Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Open the Philips Device Manager (Start à All Programs à Philips Digital Audio Player à SAXXX à Philips Device Manager) and click on the “Repair” tab.  Then click on the “Repair” button to start the repair process.  Most of the time, when your player is in that state, the Device Manager will not recognize that your GoGear is plugged in.  If this is the case: Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.

Delstar 1036 problem

If the MP3 Player is like I think it is, you need the software installed to transfer the files to the player, because it has to give each song a specific "code" that the player is able to see.   For the disc not installing look for the option to manually install the software (usually [Drive Letter]:setup.exe or something) in the user manual, and it "might" be a little more straightforward.  However, I am not sure if all of the software is compatible with Vista :( Sorry

Driver for flash memory card for windows vista

Here is the solution for pen drive (you are must to have got acces to
Windows XP installed drive):

Windows\system32\drivers) on the some location on your disk.
- plug in device with Vista running
- when it is not recognized place to location where you saved these two
files above
- when you vista recognize mass storage device you will get information
about inproper INF section, and the second device will be unknown in your
device manager
- try to actualize driver for unknown device and point Vista to find driver
into your c:\windowsvistadir\ [x] with subdirectories

This problem may be because u have enable some security on ur memory stick if so try this driver
