Every time i plug in my mp3 it says mtp device found. i dont no what that means.also my mp3 wont show on my computer & wont let me download new music.all that comes up is mtp device found & my mp3...


Hello,

MTP stands for Media Transfer Protocol: it means that the player is switched into the MTP connection mode. Files can be transferred in this mode using a software program.
You can look in the manual, which software program matches your player or get a download from the support site (see below).

When you'd like to transfer media in the explorer in "My Computer": look in the manual how to switch to MSC mode for viewing the player as a removable disc. Transfers in MSC mode are the same as copying files to an external usb flash drive: be sure to have the files in the correct format for the player, before transferring.

All support for the "GoGear Vibe" can be acquired going to next site and select the exact model from the list:

Make sure you have synced the songs properly. Try the windows media player. Sometimes when you add songs it just adds it to computer part but does not sync. If u can add how downloaded the songs to your description.

E280r MP3 player wont sync songs!


If your device is getting too close to its capacity, it will effect the menu on the device. You need at least 6-10MB of free space for the "music database". If thats not it, one or more of your files may be corrupt. To resolve this, you should format the device to delete all the music, then transfer it back to the player. To format, right click on the device under My Computer and select format. Please add to the question if that didnt work. Best of Luck.

Unable to find new songs on SD card


If your device is too full, it wont have enough room to create the music database for the new songs. Move some of your music off of the device onto the memory card. Try to keep about 10MB free for each GB of music you have. You can add to this question for further assistance. Best of Luck.

Menu isn't finding the music selections.


Here's what happened: When you first synced your player to Windows Media Player, you may have set up the automatic sync option. When this option is selected, Windows Media Player will add EVERY song, picture, etc from your Library on your computer to the player. Now, every time you sync you device, it adds every new file from your computer into the player automatically. It will even delete songs from your player that were on there before.

Go into Windows Media Player 11 with your player connected to the computer (it will automatically sync and add new files one last time), move the mouse cursor over to the sync tab; a small black arrow will appear under the word "Sync"; click on the small black arrow and a dropdown menu will appear; select "Portable media device" from the dropdown menu, and another dropdown menu will appear; select "Set Up sync"; a window will appear with some information on your device - uncheck the box that says "Sync this device automatically"; click Finish; This will eliminate the problem of Windows always adding/deleting songs/files you don't want into your player.
