Hi, I know there are a million answers for this online, yet nothing is working. Getting a sound device error when I try to play music.I don't know if I have an out of date driver, no driver bad sound card,no sound card, etc.
You probably want to uninstall the sound card driver, reboot, and reinstall. Also check with multiple media players to see if that could be an issue. If you could give me the sound name and/or model number that would be great. If you don't have that and you are running XP please go to device manager, right click on your sound card and select properties then select Details tab. You should see Device ID or Device Instance ID in a drop down list. With Device ID selected there will be a string in a format like: HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0883&SUBSYS....
What I need to help you is this string, specifically the VEN_--- and DEV_----. I know this is a general problem but is caused by specific issues. Hope this helped, reply soon. Zitoc08

Did you transfer MP3 files, i.e files with a .mp3 extension after the name, e.g. StarSpangledBanner.mp3 ? From the error messages you are getting, it looks to me that the files you transferred are not MP3 files. For example, when you press Play, one or more files are highlighted and the player tries to play the first (or the only one) highlighted, but it can't because it is in a format that is not supported, i.e. not MP3. When you click Music, the player starts looking for all the MP3 files that you have on the player or on an external memory card. It cannot find any, hence the 'empty disv/card' error message.
If that is the Double Down Casino, that game has been giving a lot of people, myself included, a lot of trouble. Sorry, but if you paid real money into that, you aren't getting it back. A lot of people have said as much online.
Go to the system panel, there choose "sound" . a list with all available sound devices appear. search for your bose soundlink and make it your "standard device". had the same prob. with my BT headset and this works for me.
if your bose get disconnected the sound should automatically switch to pc speakers.
Please try to play any audio file in windows media player ,and look for what type of error you are getting.if its getting any device error please try to reinstall the Sound driver from system manufacture website.if it playing the file without any errors check the audio device and the sound settings.
You might try plugging it back into your computer, and formatting it. If you don't know how to do that, pull up the screen right BEFORE you would open it to copy music to it, right click on the flash drive, and click format. Format it with whatever the default format is shown (probably FAT32) and then copy your music back onto it. If that doesn't work, let me know.
Windows Media Player cannot play several files in the playlist. This might be caused by one or more problems.
To find information about the specific problems, click the Now Playing tab, and then click the blue or red icon next to each file in the List pane.
In some cases, you might encounter this error message if there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. For example:
Your sound device requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see Windows Help and Support or refer to your sound device's documentation.
You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again
Thanks for asking for solution,I would require some additional info.
1. Does windows media player give you an error while playing the file ?
2. Is the problem only in windows media player ? eg, are you getting windows startup sound.
In the meantime try system restore , take the computer back to the date when it was working fine.
ps: do let me know the make of the sound card and which windows operating system you are using
