    I have the same problem, its a fisher-price product and it won't register, I have an additional problem in that the computer recognizes the usb storage device but the program doesn't recognize the fp3 player is attached. I have uninstalled the program and re-installed it, to no effect and I have scoured the fisher-price support site. No help there.

Uninstall what you've installed from the software. It says right in the System Requirements Windows 2000 and XP. Fisher-Price has a Vista version that they can e-mail to you that'll work.

The solution for VISTA is easy.
Install the FP3 software and use it to convert your songs into .fp3 format.
Open EXPLORER, plug in the player and COPY the song from your hard disk onto the player.
You need to edit the PLAYLIST on the player (SNG or songs) and add a line refering to the song you just copied e.g. A:\TRACK0011.fp3 BUT ALSO change the number at the top of the file by the number of tracks you've copied on.
Save the PLAYLIST and SAFELY REMOVE the hardware.
Your songs will be available on the Player. If it doesnt work, check the ATTRIBUTES on the PLAYLIST are not set to READ_ONLY.

This Fisher-price fp3 player doesn't work!!!!


For some reason it has become corrupt. You will have to reformat it. With the FP3 player connected using the usb cable, locate the FP3 player through the removable drives section on your computer. Then right click and select format. This will clean out/erase all files on your FP3 player. This should solve your problem.

How do you convert your own music (itunes) to FP3 format?


There's currently no converter available to convert from MP3 to FP3. Fisher Price wants you to download songs from them or simply just convert from existing CD's.

Until someone decides to make this converter I'm afraid you only have those two choices!

You could try burn CD's from iTunes if you downloaded the music & then rip them to FP3. Painfull but no other way just yet :(

I/o error on a Fisher Price FP3 Player


I spoke with Fisher-Price today and the rep was very helpful. We had to reformat the player. I was able to do it all within 15 minutes on the phone with her and now our player is working great.

A couple items to look for when setting this up:

1. User listed on the FP3 player is the same as the administrator on your computer. You must be logged in as an admin.

2. Check which drive first comes up when you plug in your FP3 player. Then right click that drive-> format -> start (do not do a quick format).

Also, make sure you have enough space on your computer and your running on current drivers and removing devies appropriatly.

Windows vista


There is not a driver - not only is this player not compatible with Vista, plugging it into a Vista computer will ruin it permanently

Disney mixmax for vista


The software won't install but you don't need it in order to use it. It's a plug in that interfaces with Windows Media Player. Since Vista comes with Windows Media Player 11 you can just go to the sync page to add songs to the player.
