Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

1 Answer

DMP400N Hi! I recently bought a Hitcahi Living Systems Mp3 player. I tried connecting it to my car stereo which I can plug an usb device into. It did not seem to work, however, so I turned the player off and disconnected it. I discovered that my car stereo did not tolerate my mp3 player, due to the format. Unfortunately, when i was about to copy some of my music over to a different mp3 player, I discovered that something was wrong. When I turned my DMP400N back on, the display still said "reading" picturing a computer and the player... Now nothing seems to work! My computer does not seem to find the mp3 player, so I cannot safely remove it from my pc... turning the mp3 player off does not work, I have even tried to reset it by pressing the reset-button with a sharp, non-metal object. I hear the clicking sound, which suggests that the button has been pressed, but nothing happens... the screen is 'stuck', so to speak.... Any chance you could help me? Thank you!

Since I was unable to turn my Mp3 player off, it eventually ran out of battery!
I then connected it to my pc, and now it seems to work like a charm!

I have a SanDisk Clip 2GB that is about 2 years old. When it is not plugged into a power source I cannot turn on the player. When it is plugged into the car adapter, it will turn on and play. While it is...


When your player is connected to the car stereo it is simply acting like any USB source.. your car stereo is not writing to it or exchanging information.

When the player is hooked to the laptop or any pc it is acting like an external read write drive.. data is being exchanged.. so the buttons are disabled on the device.

Chances are the rechargeable battery has failed. This unit does not allow for replacement of this battery. It can still function the way you are using it.. but not on it's own. When you attach it to either car stereo or laptop the unit is getting power via the USB connection.

You can try a reset to see if that helps.. Slide the power button up and hold it for 20 seconds.. release.. and try to power on again.

Update the firmware..

I hope your battery has not died..they last a long time.. but not forever.

Best of luck

Does device manager recognize it as anything? Even some generic name like "usb composite device" or something like that? Or does it say Zune or something else?

CAN I CHANGE THE SETTINGS FOR HOW IT DOCKS I WANT TO PLUG INTO MY CAR STEREO USB TO PLAY, BUT UNABLE TO AS IT DOCKS


Hi,

The USB cable supplied with the Walkman Player is for connecting it to the Computer. Once you connect the Walkman Player to the Computer, it will detect it as an MTP device.
For connecting the Player to a Car Audio System, it should detect it as an MTP Device. The operations by connecting the USB of the Player to the Car Audio System is not guaranteed by Sony.
However, you can connect the Headphone Out of the Walkman to the AUX Input jack on the Car audio system (if available).

Hello

Connect your Sansa MP3 player to more than one USB port on your computer. Ensure that your computer USB port is not corrupt or disabled by testing at least two available ports. This is especially useful when you possess no other USB-based equipment.

Inspect your USB ports' status to ensure they are enabled on your computer. Right-click "My Computer" and launch "Properties" to verify the availability of such connections. Select "Device Manager" from the Hardware tab and click the "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" from the list shown. If a red "X" is shown, the USB ports are disabled.

Ensure your computer is updated by clicking "Start" and launching "Windows Update" from the Programs menu. Alternatively, inspect your USB port connectivity through your motherboard BIOS settings. Note that BIOS access and settings varies by mother board manufacturer.

Scan your computer for new hardware changes. From the Device manager, click the "Action" menu and select "Scan for hardware changes" while your Sansa MP3 player is connected. Allow your computer to attempt to find any physical component recently added in the event it failed to previously detect it.

Connect your Sansa player to a different computer. Test the connection on a different system's USB port to verify that the Sansa device's own connection has not been damaged. Inspect the USB ports on the computer in question as well to eliminate the possibility of both systems having problematic USB ports.

Change your Sansa MP3 player's USB plug. Sometimes the head of the plug may lose contact with the appropriate circuits. Obtain a secondary USB port at your local retail store and test it on an updated computer system.

Hitachi living systems model dmp400n


I've got one of these. All worked fine then both my PCs now declare it a corrupt device and refuse to recognise it! Player still works fine, plays, charges, etc but no PC connection.

Tried the reset but appears to do nothing (player just carries on doing what it doing). Is there a procedure for reset that I'm not following correctly?
Help will be much appreciated!
