When i plug in my Transonic MP4 player a pop up box comes up which says that "USB device not recognised". It then tells me that one of the USB devices has malfunctioned and windows does not...


MP3 players use the popular USB connection which sometimes produces errors while connecting. These messages are similar to the "Device Not Recognized" error received with various USB devices. Fixing an MP3 player is sometimes specific to the brand, but they are so similar that most can be fixed the same troubleshooting steps.



Instructions

Device Manager

Click "Start" and go to "Control Panel." Double-click "System" and locate the Hardware tab to find the Device Manager. Vista and Windows 7 users can just type "Device Manager' from the start menu.

Locate "Disk Drives" from the list and double-click "Portable Device." If there is an exclamation mark or other error on the device, go to the "Drivers" tab.

Click "Uninstall" and remove the player. Restart the computer and attach the player reinstall the drivers.

Anti-virus conflicts

Plug the player into a different computer to see if it gets recognized. If it does not, contact the manufacturer to find out if it is broken.

Turn off your anti-virus program on your PC if the device works on other computers. Reinstall the drivers using the device manager as described in section 1.

Plug in the player to confirm the connection.

Other solutions

Check the battery level and make sure the batter is not low or depleted. A low battery will sometimes prevent the player from connecting. Let it charge from the power cord, if necessary.

Verify that you have at least Service Pack 1 installed. Go to the Start menu and type "Run." Press Enter.

Type "Winver" in the box and press "Enter." The Windows version will be displayed along with any installed service packs. Download a service pack from Microsoft, if applicable.

Remove the player from the USB port and push a pin into the reset hole located on the bottom. Reconnect to see if the problem is resolved.

Check the connection to make sure it's secure. The cable should fit firmly into both the player and the computer. Connect to a different USB port if you have one available.

Download updated firmware or use the MP3 Recovery Tool provided under Resources (for Zen players).

Tips & Warnings

A bad cable will sometimes prevent a good connection. Use a different one to isolate the cause.

Computer does not recognize Coby MP822 4G MP3 player


The actual MP3 player should display a USB connection on the screen, if not, I would say its a connection issue (bad USB cable), my guess is your using a laptop, a lot of laptops disable their USB power options, you probably need to re-enable your USB ports, if desktop, it should show a USB connection on MP3, if not, battery or cable issue.

I had the same problem with an MP3 player once. What causes it is the connection between the Pc and The ext Hdd. What you need to do is either find another plug for the hdd, dont replace the hardrive just the USb cable, or muck about with the cord untill your computer notices it

USB Malfunction


oh God. I have the same problem. but my grandparents got it for me, so i can't find the courage to throw it away. too much sentimental value. see, i put Rockbox on it. it was working fine for a while. this sucks. the good thing - you can copy/cut/paste/delete/move....etc. with Rockbox. so i just put the music on the microSD through the computer, then put it into the player and cut/paste.
