It all some what depends on the mode of use. Let me explain, most players have 2 modes of use. One is MTP, which stands forMedia Transfer Protocol, in this mode you can or should be able to sync with Media Player, or Real Player, ETC. you have to use this mode to down load Digital Rights Management (DRM) protected content. MP3's downloaded form services like Rhapsody and Napster will only function in this MTP mode. Next is MSC, this mode will work out of the box with just about any MP3 player and any OS (W*ndows, Linux). MTP mode will work as long as you have WMP 10 or 11 installed. Firstly, I will try to explain MSC mode.
MSC stands for Mass Storage Class. When your player is in this mode, the computer will see it the same way it would see a Thumb drive or flash drive, as a removable disk. It will assign the first available drive letter to your device, as well as one for the memory card (if it uses one and it is installed). This is probably the more popular of the 2 modes, and is a more "open source" type of standard. Most computers detect the player in this mode without a problem very well and right away. Now if you have files or songs loaded in one mode, you can not access them from the other mode and visa virsa. This is why some folks can't find songs after they loaded them with Media Player, and there player tells them no more room left on the devise. Hope this helps. So look thru your setting on the player to see if it has these modes of USB connection.

Trying to syn music to my mp3 insignia


It may not be anything you are doing wrong. You will have to see how your player is seen buy your computer. Go to your control panel -> System -> device manager --> Look for your player there, does it show up as a Portable Device? NOTE: The player should show up on the Device Manager's right pane as:
1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC)
2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode.)
It should sync with Media player if it shows up as a Portable device - but if it shows up as a Mass storage device all you have to do is drag and drop what you want into the right folder on the player.

Flash mp3 (MC4004) F"n thing making me mad!


Hello,
When the player shows up as a detected device in Windows Media Player 10 or 11, the MC4004 will try to synchronize the playlists that are on the player with those on the computer.
It is possible that playlists on the computer:
1. have been removed or
2. are no longer in the library for synchronizing

Synchronizing can be set automatic or manually in WMP.

When you right click the player in the list in WMP, selected Library or Sync view, you will be able to setup the sync mode of
the player.
For more help look in the help function "Help with Sync" under the Sync tab in Windows Media Player.

Need more assistance ? Just post another comment.

Error! reformat internal media as FAT16


There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

The way I do it on my MP3 is go to My Computer when device is connected. Then double click on the external drive or whatever it lists your MP3 player as (should be below your D: drive). If you open the external drive you will find whatever folders are on your MP3 player. Drag and drop your music in the music folder and it should work like a charm!

MuVo v100


My MuVo was having problems until I installed the latest firmware. The last firmware release was in July 2007. If you haven't updated the player's firmware since then, try downloading it and installing Creative MuVo V100 Firmware 1.05.01.

If you can't get your computer to even recognize the player anymore, you could try reinstalling the Creative Mass Storage Driver 1.07.00.250.
