Re: locked usb port
OK, they're wrong. The USB port isn't locked - the player is locked. Find the lock or hold switch on the side of the player and set it to OFF - see manual for details (BTW, if you have the manual or a link to the manual, post it here - we've been trying for months to get one).
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.

I think the easiest way would be to fit the SD card into a USB adaptor and plug the adaptor into the USB port of a computer. If you computer doesn't have a USB port, several printers have them and you can access that port when the printer is linked to the computer. Some printers will even take the SD Card direct! Once connected the Card will be just like a drive. And you can copy the MP3 files to your computer, then import them to the MP3 player.
USB SD Card adaptors are not expensive and can be found on Amazon.
WE BOUGHT ONE AT BIG LOTS FLINT.
FIRST IT WOULD NOT COME OFF OF USB SCREEN WHEN DISCONNECTED FROM COMPUTOR. NOW IT'S STUCK ON WELCOME SCREEN & THE COMPUTOR WILL NOT CONNECT TO IT. COULD NOT FIND SOLUTION ON WEB SITE.
WE WILL BE RETURNING UNIT TOMORROW MORNING. THESE UNITS ARE A PIECE OF JUNK FROM WHAT I FIND ON THE WEB.
IN ADDITION TO THIS MY WIFE STATES THERE IS NO REASON WE SHOULD HAVE TO GO ON THE INTERNET TO SEE IF A PRODUCT DOES OR DOES NOT WORK. IT SHOULD WORK.
Make certain that your version of Windows is up to date by visiting
Windows Update. There have been updates to the USB
support in almost every version of Windows, especially the 9x and Me
Make certain that your system BIOS is up to date. BIOS support is an
important part of USB support, and just like the operating system, there have
been updates. Exactly where and how to get an updated BIOS will vary depending
on the manufacturer of your computer - check with them.
Make certain that your USB hardware drivers are up to date. The drivers are
the hardware-specific interface between Windows and the USB ports. Getting
updates to these drivers will depend on the manufacturer of your computer, or
the manufacturer of your USB port add-in if the USB ports are on an expansion
card, so you'll need to check with them.
If you can't connect iPod nano to your computer , make sure;
you have installed the latest iTunes software from www.apple.com/ipod/start.
Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer. Note: A USB 2.0 port is recommended to connect iPod nano. USB 1.1 is significantly slower than USB 2.0. If you have a Windows PC that doesn’t have a USB 2.0 port, in some cases you can purchase and install a USB 2.0 card. For more information, go to www.apple.com/ipod.
iPod nano might need to be reset (see page 64).
If you’re connecting iPod nano to a portable or laptop computer using the iPod Dock Connector to USB 2.0 Cable, connect the computer to a power outlet before connecting iPod nano.
Make sure you have the required computer and software. See “If you want to double check the system requirements” on page 68.
Check the cable connections. Unplug the cable at both ends and make sure no foreign objects are in the USB ports. Then plug the cable back in securely. Make sure the connectors on the cables are oriented correctly. They can be inserted only one way.
Remove battery, press and hold "Play" button when inserting into USB port. Run the firmware update and should be able to re-initialize the device, start the update with the "Format" option checked. Worked for me.
I'm assuming that there's currently no response from the device - if you are still getting music and other lights from it; ignore the following.
These devices use USB to charge. It is possible that your USB port is actually the thing not working. Have you attempted plugging it into another computers USB port, or a standalone USB Hub that uses a power adapter? Also, some ports won't provide enough power to charge - if you are using a non powered hub this may be the case - these can also include those handy USB ports on the side of the keyboard.
Also, verify your USB cable is good - this can be difficult as the Sansa's use a proprietary connector. It's not likely to just go bad, but check to see that it fits properly and doesn't appear broken.
