I had the same problem with my computer not recognizing my player when I tried to install it. It turned out the front USB ports for some reason weren't working (for it - they seem to work for other things, just not players). Try one of your USB ports in the back. Unplug a printer or something temporarily if you have to if its using the only one you have. The first clue to whether its working or not (for the player) is that the player screen light (blue) will turn itself on and STAY ON while its plugged in. If the light isn't coming on, then you need to try a different computer maybe.
I'm reading that lots of people are having this same problem - it causes me to wonder if maybe Nextar's USB connectors don't "quite" fit in the USB ports - they seem to be loose like they are too small (the nextar ones) on the MA566. My son's (a different version but still NEXTAR) work fine on ALL the ports of my computer. Go figure.

Perhaps your audio book was from audible.com. They use their own audible format ( .aa instead of .mp3) and only certain mp3 players can play .aa files. If the book is in .aa format, go to www.audible.com and check to see whether or not your player is compatible with .aa files. If not, you're outta luck. durok

Could be a corrupted file, or it could be in the wrong format. Try ripping the CD to your computer in the MP3 format (using http://www.freerip.com/ or something of the like) and placing the tracks on your MP3 player that way. It should fix the problem easily.

Maybe the first one had something wrong with it. Mine has done that since I got it at Christmas. I'm going to swap it for a new one. Mine got screwed up at the factory.

First decide what music you want, then connect your element MP3 usb to the computer to tranfer the music to it, Open windows media player and in the rip column click and choose format option. From the Format drop down, click on MP3 and rip the music. transfer all of the music into your device.
