Uninstall USB drivers in Device Manager and then restart your computer and allow system to reinstall drivers for USB on its own. Then try and connect the device again.

My mp3 player keeps rebooting while connected to my PC. Its recognized by the pc and i can transfer/sync files just fine. But it randomly reboots and sometimes in the middle of sync'ing. could it be a usb...


Yes, It sounds like a USB problem. I have a PDA and this was happening to me. Now I have to plug my PDA into a USB port on the back of my computer to keep it Synced up.. Try a port on the back. These ports have more power available to power these devices.

The device can not be detected on my computer


With the usb port I take this you aren't using windows 7 and probably not vista but xp. Open up the windows media player and go to sync there you will see either a connect to device or your mp3 player name on it. Could try another usb port sometimes that works. If your able to reformat sometimes that will work also computer, drive(x), right click quick format.

I am trying to transfer music onto my bush mp3 it is saying device has stopped but i have got it plugged in .can you help me please?


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the Coby website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

then follow these instructions to add music;
**Drag and Drop**
Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder, available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player.
--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.

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.

My MP3 player won't connect to my laptop


Open up your windows media player on your computer and select the sync tab on the upper righthand side .Plug In your MP3 Player and now It should be recognized there on the right pane window when you use the sync feature on windows media player !! Drag your music files from your library to this area and they should sync to your player using the button in the lower right hand corner area . I believe it will say sync or sync device !!

I opened Media Player and plugged the mp3 player into the usb port and used the feature called Sync and it started downloading my music onto the mp3 player. I also checked the function in my computer under device manager to make sure the usb port was working correctly.. Hope this helps!

Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player Problem connection


Found the solution on another site (http://www.everythingusb.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=11238). To quote user AFHavemann :

"* Plug in the player so the USB bus can see it.

* Once it’s recognized (i.e., the device screen reads "Charging" and "USB Disconnected"), go to the Control Panel and click "System"

* Choose "Hardware" then "Device Manager" tab.

* Look for the name of your device under “Portable Devices” in the list

* If the name of your player is under “MTP Device” then the correct drivers are probably loaded

* Right-click on the name of your device and click "Properties"

* Click “Update Driver”"

Then follow the prompts from there. The computer searches for the driver software, etc., and reinstalls/resets information related to the device, which fixed things such that the computer will now recognize the device. I'm not sure what causes the problem, but this solution seems to reset whatever's gone wrong.

Computer doesn't recognize MP3 player -


I think I have a solution. First you turn on the MP3 Player and then go to the menu. Go down to settings. Then, go to USB. Go down to "MSC" and hit the middle button. It should take you back to the settings menu. That means you successfully changed that setting. Now plug the MP3 Player back into the computer and open up "My Computer." It should show up. I hope this helps!
