Can't charge battery

If you are trying to charge it through your PC usb ports and it is a laptop, the usb ports may be shutting off on you to conserve power, depending on your power preferences. USB takes a long time to charge as well.

My smpk4083 wont charge

It can be 1 of 4 things. 1: the way your charging it. 2: the cable. 3: the battery. 4: the conection on your device.
1: Try charging it different ways. (Different wall outlet, laptop, computer, etc.) (Note: some laptops and/or computers might not have a strong enough charge to recharge certain devices. You'd have to adjust the power setting in the control panel or the manufacturers setings.)
2: Try using a different cable. (If you don't have one try wigleing both ends to see if you get a charge.)
3. Try another battery. (Most people overcharge batteries thus shortening the recharging capabilities.)
4. Check to see if any of the pins are messed up or missing on where you plug the wire into your device. (If any are missing you can open it up and replace the part.) Sometimes people end up pushing them in by accident when they conect there charger, so the wire doesn't make a good conection after a while (another case where wiggleing the wire could work).

Yes most mp3 players automaticly charge when you plug in to down load from your computer. All you need is the cord not the software so any pc can charge the mp3.

Does my GPX MW3847 need to be on when I charge it?

You should be able to just plug in the usb cable and it will charge automatically, if your computer has the drivers installed for it. you may be able to test it with a Motorla wall charger to see if the battery will even take a charge.

My mp3 doesnt connect into my usb it just disconnects and starts to charge can you help me

I assume from your description that either you are running a version of Windows older than XP/2000 or you need a special driver. Here is a link for the driver(s) you will need. Just enter your model number and select your version of Windows. Download and run the file and you should be up and running shortly.
