Question about Philips Audio Players & Recorders
If a different computer recognizes the player, then the problem is not the player, but either the cable used (if using cable) or the computer itself.
Do the following:
If using USB cable, Hub or extension, replace the cable or bypass it. Connect the player directly to USB if possible.
Disconnect all USB devices from computer. Disconnect the computer from power, at the same time remove battery if the computer is a laptop.Wait ten minutes to allow power draining completely.
Connect back power, keyboard mouse and monitor (if this is a PC), restart and connect the player.
If that does not work, try doing a system restore to a recent date before the problem started. You find system restore on Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.
All settings will be back to the chosen date.
If using a determined software to sync the player (eg.ITunes), try reinstalling the software.
If still no luck, then there is a system related software problem or an hardware problem with the USB on computer. Common procedure is reinstalling system, and if that does not work, testing for a possible hardware fault.
Try the steps above, usually system restore or disconnecting will fix the problem.

First make sure usb cable connected to player is working fine.
try it in different usb ports.
Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers.
Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key.
