Re: windows xp wont recognize usb connection from rave. ...
If you're using the retractable usb cable that came with the player, replace it. I had the same problem. XP recognized that there was a device, but couldn't open it. I was getting a "Driver not installed" error in device manager.

Unless your running windows 98 you do not need drivers as they are already installed in your computer using XP,Vista,Windows 7.
Your MP3 player may not be recognized by the computer...for that problem thy this solution.
Go to Device Manager To get to Device Manager you will: Right click on My Computer>Properties>click the Hardware Tab>Device Manager. After you are in Device Manager look for your MP3 player or Unit. Here you should see no "Yellow" exclamation points. If you do they they are telling you that you have a device conflict. If you currnetly have your unit plugged in, you may notice the "unknown device" which would be your Player or Unit. If you unit has an exclamation point by it, then you will need to click on it and delete it. After you remove all devices with conflicts then click on refresh and search again for your MP3 player/Device. The computer should install your device this time and solve your problem with connection of the MP3 player/Device. Please take time to rate me thumbs up.
Hi, smpk4083 mp3 player not recognized by the computer Why is my smpk4083 mp3 player not being detected by my computer when I connect it?
This may be caused by one of the following: 1. Minimum system requirements were not met. 2. Corrupted drivers. 3. Computer restrictions. 4. Power issue.
To resolve this issue, try the following solutions:
SOLUTION 1 - For brand new player or first time connecting to this computer.
For Windows XP users: verify the following operating system requirements are met. - Windows XP SP2 or higher - Windows Media Player 10 or higher
Download and install the latest Windows Media Player if it's not installed.
For Windows Vista users: If the player is seen in My Computer when using MTP mode, but not showing in Windows Media Player. - Download the hotfix from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939211. - Run the hotfix.
For MAC users, see smpk4083 mp3 player not recognized by a MAC OS
NOTE: If you are trying to connect to a Computer at work that is part of a network, there may be user right restrictions that are set to disable access to new hardware or stop any program installations. You may need to check with your IT administrator to see if this is causing the problem.
SOLUTION 2 - Refresh the driver
STEP 1 - Connect the smpk4083 mp3 player to the PC The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery charging or full. - If the player does not turn on try other USB ports or on another computer if one is readily available. Ensure you are connecting directly to the computer USB port and not to a USB hub. - If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up in as a storage device in an explorer window, then the screen is just not working.
If you receive the error "USB Device Not Recognized" on the computer, the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.
STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager 1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage. Image 2. Click Device Manager on the left pane. Image
NOTE: smpk4083 mp3 Players can connect to your computer in MSC or MTP mode. Exceptions are smpk4083 mp3 player Connect and smpk4083 mp3 Express which only use MTP mode. MTP mode is the recommended and default method for smpk4083 mp3 Players when used with Windows OS.
The smpk4083 mp3 player will show up on 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)
If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers.
STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers 1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall. 2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.
NOTE: If a device with yellow exclamation point (!) continually appears and disappears, then the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.
Ok most new MP3 players want you to use Microsoft Media Player 10 or 11. Then check your settings in the player for USB modes MSC or MTP check out this tip posted here on this site
Ok when you hook it up and it says MTP just push and hold the Play pause key till it says Usb then it should recognize it .....
now mine recognizes it on both usb and mtp i have win xp pro ...
If you do this and it doesnt work
If you are using Windows XP or Vista, make sure that the player is in the Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) mode. This can be done by pressing the M button. This button is located on the top of your mp3 player. Open Windows Media Player 10 or 11 and follow the directions for transferring (synchronizing) music. If you have Windows Media Player 9 on your XP machine, upgrade to Windows Media Player 10 or 11. This can be done by visiting www.windowsmediaplayer.com. If you are using Windows 98SE,Windows ME, or Windows 2000, you will only be able to transfer music using the USB transfer mode. Open Windows Media Player 9, and follow the directions for transferring (synchronizing) music. If you have version 9 on Windows 98SE or Windows ME, you will need to visit the Download Center for updated drivers.
1. Connect your ML648B to your computer with Windows XP or later. 2. By default your computer will recognize ML648B as GPX MTP Device. (Wait for few seconds to a minute allowing your Windows computer to recognize and install necessary drivers for the device for first time as MTP Device.) 3. Press the POWER button from top of your ML648B, to change it to USB mode connection. You will also see USB on the screen of ML648B.(Wait for few seconds to a minute allowing your Windows computer to recognize and install necessary drivers for the device for first time as USB device.) 4. ML648B will now mount 2 drives, one as Tools (as CD-Drive) and second as Removable Disk (Drive) – under My Computer on your Windows Desktop. 5. Double click & open Tools, and run Setup.exe to start installing Video Conversion Software tool. 6. Select defaults options and finish the installation by clicking on Close or Finish. 7. If asked, click on Continue Anyway on Windows XP or Install this driver software anyway on Windows Vista.
Are you using a USB1 or a USB2 connection for the device. I found that on my older computer which still utilizes USB1 I had the same problem but on my newer PC utilizing USB2 it was recognized correctly and I had access to all the folders. Both PCs run XP.
