It is probably corrupted. This solution will delete ALL information and files on the MP3 player.

Under Windows go to "Control Panel" then "Administrative Tools"

Next go to "Computer Management"

Under this menu scroll down the menu bar on the left side and select "Disk Management"

Now this is the tricky part, you need to find your MP3 player, if you see a device with 1GB of memory that is it.

Right click it and select "Delete Volume"

Then right click it again and select "Create Volume" (Or something similar)

Once the volume is created it should function properly once again.

    Didn't help. Only the main hard drives and other empty "Media" drives were listed under the Disk Management listing. Thanks anyway...any other suggestions?

My nextar ma566-1bl will turn on but i cannt get to music and when i plug it into the computer the computer cannt even know it is there


1. Go to the Windows Desktop, click on the "Start" button, and then click "Run" or "Start Search" if you are using the Windows Vista operating system. 2. Type the following text into the text box: 3. "devmgmt.msc" Click OK. 4. Select your computer when the Device Manager window opens, and then select "Action" from the options at the top of the window. 5. Choose the "Scan for hardware changes" option from the drop down menu that appears. 6. Insert any USB device such as a mouse or flash drive into the USB port in question. Now simply check the USB device to see whether it is working in order to test the port. Try resetting the device it?s usually a small pinhole on the back or side of the device try holding that in for about 10 seconds OR Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturers website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

Cant recognized on XP


If you are using an USB extension or an USB external hub, get rid of it.

Try plugging the MP3 to a different USB port.

Try unplugging AC charger, and removing laptop batter for ten minutes, sometimes this can fix problems caused by accumulation of electrostatic charges on USB controller.

If that does not solve the problem, test a different USB device on the same laptop, and test the MP3 on a different computer. Either one may be faulty.

If the problem is the laptop you may fix it by removing and reinstalling USB root hub on hardware devices in Control Panel.

M P 3 player


There is no need for a driver when using the MA566 with Vista, it should just show up as a thumb drive as well. Try to set to MTP mode.

Can't download songs


I don't really know how Rhapsody works - do you have to download strait from the site to player, or do you save the files to your hard drive in between. If you have them as individual mp3 or wav files on your hard drive try using a different media player.

I did read in the installation guide for my ma566 that its not compatible with downloads "purchased from" itunes. Maybe its the same thing with Rhapsody?

Re: the xp vs win98 - on a phone call to Nextar tech support, I was told that if you have XP you don't need to use the driver disk but you might need to help the computer search online for updated drivers. I'm not sure if your saying your issue is that your COMPUTER is acutally 98 when it was "supposed to be" Xp, or if you are trying to use the 98 driver disk on xp and its not working.

Did your computer ever even recognize that the mp3 player existed? Or are you getting a specific error message?

Ilo mp3 player 1g


This player only seems to be able to transfer MP3 format with Vista, using windows media player syne. Unless someone found otherwise.

When using XP Pro and Windows Media Player you can transfer WMA but you have to go into the PROPERTIES of the drive (mine was mp-556/G: drive) and DESELECT the option to transfer folder hierecy. The MP3 player is not able to reconginize the folder structure it usually creates.
