Cant put songs onto my daughters bratz mp3 player


Hi, 
When plugging a USB removable device/storage, you should see an icon named "Safely Remove Hardware" in the system tray (right side of the task bar, near the clock). Left click on it, and you should see a list of removable hardware.
If you can not see the device there, then there is problems with your MP3 player, perhaps the battery is too weak; if this is the case, just leave it a few minutes until the device charged and initializes and recognized by the computer.
If you can see the device, but no drive letter assigned to it, then there is problem assigning drive letter to it.
You can re-arrange the drive letter assignment by entering Computer Management console: right-click on My Computer, then click on Manage.
Choose Disk Management, and assign a drive letter to your device.

The Safely Remove Hardware dialog box does not appear


not really, you may be able to select the option, if you right click on the drive in my computer, but they don't always disconnect the hardware anyway, so just remove it as lons as you know there is no activty

Tried the solution you offered for c240....


Go to Start --> Control Panel --> Printers and Other Hardware --> System --> hardware --> device manager --> right click on the usb port that is malfunctioning (should have a red or yellow exclamation by it), right-click it and click on Update Driver

If that fails, try another USB port on the computer to see if you have more success

Kinda long, sorry: Unable to safely remove or rename folders/files on my YP-T9


It sounds as if it a problem with write caching.

Basically, if write caching is enabled, any changes you make to the files in Windows are not actually carried out at the time, but are saved into memory and then when you select safe removal they are written to the external device in one go. From what you describe, since you can't select safe removal, it sounds as if the changes are never being written to your player.

Try this:

Go to My Computer, right-click the icon for your player and select properties.

Go to the hardware tab, scroll down the list and highlight your player and then click properties.

Go to the policies tab and make sure 'optimize for quick removal' is selected.

Ok your way back out.

Hopefully this should solve the problem.

Pc won't recognize


i have a k3, and i had that same problem. my computer wouldn't recognize it, and it was really frustrating. i searched around and i found out a strategy that works for me. i'm not sure if it'll work for you, but you should definitely try it. most likely the case is that the usb port is jacked up. what you need to do is click the start button to bring up the tool bar, then go over to my computer. when you are hovering the mouse over my computer, right click on it and click on properties. click on the hardware tab, and then go down to device manager. once you are in device manager, find a button that says "scan for new hardware" or "scan for hardware changes". it should then recognize your samsung k3. if not, then i dont know what to tell you. haha.

Phillips Go Gear 6GB


The Phillips website has a solution for this:
Go to the FAQ for this mp3 player. It'll tell you to install the Device Manger which will repair the problem. I've done this, however, the Device Manager claims my mp3 Player is not connected.

Try this yourself, you might have better luck.
