Usb connection on sirius stiletto 2 to pc

Can anyone help in connecting ()USB) my stiletto 2 to my PC using My Sirius Studio. It seems that it is a serious problem for Sirius. They replaced the unit under warranty, but problem persist. unistalling the software several times also does not correct the problem. My PC uses WINDOWS XP.

    I made sure the satellite radio was turned off. It still won't sync to computer. i have windows vista. When I check to see if the computer detects the player it does. It just won't sync with it.

    Same problem here. I even reset the stiletto knowing that my library and recordings would be erased hoping this would fix the problem with no luck.

I had a sync problem with the Stiletto 2 (SL2) and was able to resolve it by the following procedure:

Click "Start"
Click "Run" > Type "devmgmt.msc"
Click "+" next to "Other Devices"
Note: You should see a question mark and exclamation point next to "Stiletto 2"
Right click on "Stilleto 2" (to see menu); then, left Click "Update Driver."
Follow the steps in the windows hardware update wizard.

You must be sure to have satellite radio turned off in order to connect to the pc. If you are using a home dock, first make sure satellite is off and then push the "Sync" button on the front of the home dock.

You will need to use the aux input from the top of the unit, or from the back of your home dock. If your receiver has a built in or add-on dock for the XM2GO line of radios, you will need to read here:

Your audio out pins on the dock, or on the top of the radio are loose. The BGA connections on the chips inside may also be loose, but that is less likely depending on the force of the collision.

I'm having the exact same problem with my Stiletto 2 freezing up after about 20 minutes to an hour of use (usually goes to dog logo when it tries to do a task like recording). I'll take the battery out...

Continuity check your fuses, they're tiny green SMD fuses located near your dock connector. However, it sounds more like a bad internal connection than a fuse. This was a problem that plagued ST1 sirius radios: solder on the chips' pins would crack, and when the unit heated or cooled it would no longer make a connection, thus requiring a reboot. Long story short, most of them can't be fixed without reworking the connections (and that's a lot of effort for something that will break again).

I'd advise you to send the unit back to sirius if you're still under warranty.

It may also need to be in the charging base during the restore.

Sirius Satellite Stiletto 2

My Stiletto got the same problem at around the same time. I have been reading many stiletto owners problems and see many of the same problems erupting at around the same time-mid to late February. I just spoke with a Sirius Representative who said the Stiletto 2 has been discontinued. Seems like a conspiracy to me.

Error message says to recover connect to a pc via usb. but nothing happens please help!!!!!!!!!

You have to download the recovery software from Sirius. Then you have to hold down the options and display buttons while turning it on. This should initiate the recovery process. This is all outlined in the manual with the recovery software. Having said that I wouldn't bother. These things are junk. I'm on my 8th one from warranty.

Froze at the dog logo

exact same problem here. the fuse inside is blown, according to sirius tech support. I have a new one "on order" as a warranty replacement. They said it could take up to a month (in canada) i read many bad reviews about this unit... now I agree with them completely. 3 months of light home use before a fuse blows? Pathetic. A month wait for a new one? Unforgivable.

I ran the stiletto device recovery program and it works again. You can find it on the Sirius website by searching for "stiletto device recovery". However, it does delete all of the content that you have saved on the stiletto.

Probleme s50 usb conect pc

You have to use My Sirius Studio as the interface to your S50 to add/remove MP3 songs. Depending on your Windows version (hopefully 2000 or later) you should be able to connect via USB and Windows will autodetect the device. My Sirius Studio is a poor man's iTunes where you have to add music files before you can drag them to the playlists you created on your S50. You can download the software from the Sirius web site, including the latest update. Keep in mind you have to disconnect the S50 from My Sirius Studio. You can't copy files to it and then unplug the USB cable.
