    My Philips 8GB gogear plays songs and videos but when i try to sync new songs and videos my computer doesn't regconise the device. I have reinstalled the usb drivers and reset the device and no joy. I have done quite a bit of research to find the solution and the on thing I have found is......THIS DEVISE IS ****. SOOOO many people have had serious problems with this device. If you have the reciept bring it back and spend the extra few quid and get sony mp3 player or Ipod or summit.

Triple Reset for GoGear:
Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player.

Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

Coby mp3 player


Try to reset it if possible.
If the computer charges it then the computer recognizes it as a connected device. That's how usb works. It could be you need a new USB cable. Many devices that use USB for charging do not have the data leads connected in their cables. This is called a "vampire" connection as it only sucks 5 volts DC from the computer/charger .

Vivitar mp3 player isn't recognized by computer


If the MP3 player is not charging through the USB cable when connected to the computer and the computer cannot detect the MPe player then you could have a faulty USB cable. Try a different USB cable.

My sony nwz-s638f is not charging if i put it in the plug how can i make it work?


Hi,

Please make sure that the Computer is recognizing the Walkman when connected to the USB port.

Make sure that you're using the supplied USB cable for connecting to the Computer.

If you use the portable player for the first time, if you have not used it for a long time, or the battery is depleted, it may take up to 5 minutes for it to be recognized or start charging. On models with a display, the display will remain blank. If it the portable player is not recognized or does not begin to charge after waiting 5 minutes, reset the player by pressing the reset button.

Disconnect the USB cable from the portable player and then reconnect.

Check the connection status again.

Disconnect the USB cable from the computer and then reconnect.

Check the connection status again.

Check for available space on the player using Windows Media Player or My Computer.

Restart the computer.

Check the connection status again.

Check that the USB cable is firmly connected to both the computer and the player.

Check the connection status again.

If the player is connected to a USB hub, disconnect it and connect it directly to the computer with a dedicated USB cable.

Check the connection status again.

If the player is still not recognized by the computer, disconnect all devices connected to the computer with a USB connection and restart the computer.

After the computer restarts, connect only the Walkman player and test the connection again.

If the player is still not charged by the computer, try a different USB port.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to put msic on it


Hi,
Install the Windows driver included in the product package before connecting your Sylvania MP3 player. Insert the included driver CD into your CD-ROM drive and run the setup file if it does not load automatically. This driver makes sure your computer can recognize and operate the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 2 Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 3 Insert the other end of the same USB cable into the USB port on the computer.
  • 4 Wait for the computer to recognize the Sylvania MP3 player as a connected device. Open your file manager or browser to locate the Sylvania MP3 player as a drive or connected device if your computer does not prompt you automatically.
  • 5 Open the file folder containing the MP3 or WMA digital music files you wish to download to your Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 6 Drag and drop the file or folder icons of your desired digital music onto the Sylvania MP3 player device icon. Drag and drop the digital music into open folders within the Sylvania MP3 player device icon as well.

    I HAVE BEEN GIVEN A MP3 PLAYER WITH NO INSRUCTIONS


    Hi, what you need first is a usb cable that will connect your mp3 player with your computer, after getting this, connect the usb cable to side of your mp3, and the other end to your usb port on the computer system. Wait for sometime for your computer to recognize the usb and mp3 player.

    Open your music files on your computer, right click on the folder and click on send to, select your mp3 player, and send all the music you want to transfer from your computer to the mp3 player to it.

    I wish you best of luck.

    Creative Zen Vision M won't charge it's battery.


    check your usb cable...i had the same problem...

    I have a usb cable that came with it ( or some other mp3 player i bought), but it is way too short, so i bought a cheap ($1) and longer usb cable. The computer recognizes the mp3 when connected, but it wont charge with the long and cheap cable.

    Maybe you also have a long (or short) cheap usb cable...or maybe your usb cable is plain broke...

    MWZ-S615F will not charge or connect


    I'm sure it's the cable that's not functioning properly. Mine started doing the same thing and after wiggling and adjusting the cable inside the MP3 itself, the computer finally recognized it and I was free to charge and add music. Also you can try to connect it to a different USB port on your computer. The beeps however are news to me, unless I just never noticed. One piece of advice is to never let the MP3 battery die, because after I let it happen mine began to experience more severe problems.
