My computer has stopped recognizing the mp3 player when i plug it in
My mp3 shows up as removable disc H. The media player will recognize it, but says that they are no files on my mp3 player. I can't sync, or delete any music.
To gabby, some computer may not even recognize mp3 player from a removable disk, i would suggest that your mp3 player will serve as a back up... tranfer all your music to a folder to a fixed drive like drive c: then change the format w/c suits for your pc's media player compatibility like mp3 formats then, after your done transfer again all your songs to your back up mp3, or better yet scan all your music w/ an anti virus like kaspersky, hope this would help

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.
What services is it not showing up on? Windows Media Player? Try downloading Media Monkey (they have a free version) - it will recognize the player, and you can use Media Monkey to view, transfer songs.
if you have a Windows-based computer, you may have to reformat the iPod by going to My Computer, right-clicking on iPod logo, and then selecting "Format" player (only do this as a last resort - iPod's are generally so good that you just plug n play). The apple website has good info if you need Vista-related support for this.
try uninstalling it with the add/remove hardware opt. on control panel. check hidden devices on device list to see all devices. then plug it back in after its uninstalled. If that doesnt work try using free version of real player, it has drivers for most mp3 players and will work with many more than media player 10.
I am guessing there is a problem with the driver for the audio player. I have a Coby Audio Player MP-C827, and one day my brother decided to just remove it from the computer without correctly stopping it. Ever since, whenever I plug in it into my PC, it just does not open...nothing happens. And I don't have the cd to re-install the driver files. With respect to all of the above, a driver file which is needed by the mp3 is either damaged or corrupt. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
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
