Hello Jarvis.. Looks like the charging port of the player is damaged. You will have to get it replaced. It works when connected to computer coz the USB uses different pins to power up the player..

SOURCE: rca mp3 player wont connect to computer

you can easily download the software by visiting the samsung website - and going to their support/download page.

The most common faults with this player are

1. The touchpad fails

2. The USB part of the device fails.

These are hardware faults and cannot be rectified other than replacing 1. the touchpad and with 2. the whole unit.

Makje sure you have loaded the software correctly first of all and have restarted your computer.

If you cannot see the player in windows explorer then most likely it is the usb hardware problem.

SOURCE: my computer wont reconize my mp3 player

Down load the firmware on Sansa's website. I have a Sansa 250R and it wouldn't work with the new replacement usb (Griffin) cord I bought at Best Buy. So I bought a Sansa Fuze and the cord that came with it worked on the E250R. Huh? Yeah, go figure...and oh, that replacement Griffin usb cord I bought worked fine with the new Fuze. I came real close to buying a new battery for the E250R but instead invested that money in the Fuze.

SOURCE: computer wont recognize sansa clip mp3 player

Reformat clip with disk utility after looking at it like an external disk. Do this by turning it off. Puting it in lock mode. Hold down middle button as you plug it in.

I am mad at my Clip as it did the same thing.

Screen shot here:
Sansa clip not recognized.

How do i transfer music to my zenex mp4 player? it's brand new but the cd (driver software) it came with doesn't work.

Hi lcharlingen3...
Downloading Music to your MP3 Player

1...You must download and install Windows Media Player 11 on your computer.
NOTE...Some older MP3 players will not work with Windows Media Player 11 or Windows 7 with Windows Media Player 11.
If this happens to you, then you will have to uninstall Windows Media Player 11 and install Windows Media Player 10.
2...After you have downloaded and installed Media Player on your computer.
3...Open Media Player on your computer.
4...Install all your music into Media Player that you want to install on your MP3 player.
5...Plug in your MP3 player to the computer using your Data/Sync cord, be sure that Windows Media Player is on.
6...Media player should recognize the MP3 player and sync with it.
7...After it is sync'ed with the computer,you can add the music you have installed into Windows Media Player to your MP3 Player.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up.

What can i do when water is inside my mp3 player, then i lost it for a month. when i found it , i immidiaetly plugged it into my computer, it started working. i let it charge. when i took it out, it...

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you with your problem. Your MP3 Player has been exposed to water, then it gets lost, you find it and immediately plug it into your computer for it to charge and start working again, then it shuts off after you unplug it from the PC. I don't know if you know this or ever read it in user manuals, but they tell you not to expose your electronic device to liquid substances. This can cause product failure as well as harm to yourself or others. I'm surprised it's still working when you plugged it into the computer. I had a flash drive that went through the same experience as your MP3 player: got lost and was exposed to rainwater, then was found later and started to work again once it was plugged into the computer. Later on though, the computer failed to recognize it and it eventually stopped working. I'm thinking the situation with your MP3 player is that the battery or a driver controlling battery functioning, is defective due to water exposure. The driver that controls the PC launch up, may not have been exposed to it as much. You could try opening your MP3 player (if it can be opened) and try to drain all the water out of it, then put it back together and try to turn it on again. If that doesn't work, plug your device into the computer and go to the device manager on your PC. If your computer recognizes the device, go to its properties and click the driver tab. Click "Update Driver" to see if a driver update is needed. If the driver is up-to-date, try uninstalling the driver, then reinstalling it again. If your device is not working properly after this. Then the battery, driver or other electronic circuitry inside of your MP3 player is defective. You can try to replace the battery, if it can be, to see if that makes the difference, but I'm pretty sure your MP3 player is defective now. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but thanks for choosing FixYa to assist you with your problem. Have a good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post.

I just got my Coby Mp3, and i plugged the USB into my computer and the autoplay screen that is supposed to come on my computer, hasnt.

Does you computer detect a new device when you plugged the Coby MP3 player?
If Coby MP3 player has cd driver, better to install it to your pc. Some computer/laptop doesn't detect autoplay when new USB device plug-in

How do you recharge the battery on the mp3

good day,

your mp3 player must come out of the package complete with its accessories and, of course, a battery charger. just plug the charger on its appropriate socket in your mp3 player and plug it on your wall socket.

just follow the suggested number of hours for its initial charging and after that you can just check if it indicates "battery full."

i hope this helps

I have Sanso m250 2.0gb mobel. Logo screen is appearing when i power on after that i am unable to play the mp3 songs or play FM Radio etc..

Try doing a hard reset on a Sansa m250:
  1. Turn off the Sansa. Just pull the battery out for a second.
  2. Plug the Sansa into a computer4.gif, and open "My Documents" in the computer.
  3. Open the Sansa file as if it were a drive, then go to the "MUSIC4.gif Specific storage" file.
  4. Right click the "MUSIC Specific storage" file, and press "Format."
This should hard reset the Sansa m250. I do not know if this will work on other Sansa m200 type .mp3 players. You can start over with your playlists. This has worked for me.
