My pc window can not recognize mp3 player


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.

My mp4 charger stopped working and now my mp4 is useless. i asked my friend if i could use his and he said his stopped working some time ago

You should be able to charge it through the USB Cable connected to your player and computer as well. Otherwise there are some really cheap chargers on eBay you can get as well.

Let me know if you want the link to eBay for the chargers but the majority of the chargers connect to the USB port of your player.

Hope that helps.

Why isnt the sansa turning on ?

There really aren't any options for diy fixes here. If it is fully charged (it takes about 2 hours plugged in to USB) and you are operating the on button correctly and it won't come on it is likely fried. I had one fry recently when recharging on a car charger. Either a component is burned out, or the battery has finally died. Since the batteries aren't user replaceable you are pretty much limited to sending back for a replacement. If it is still under warranty the return process is fairly painless. I'm convinced the quality of these things isn't that great but then they aren't very expensive so get what you pay for I guess. Mine lasted 9 months.

good luck!

Wont turn on

Your charger may be damaged, if the device is charged via USB, your USB port may be damaged / disabled, try an alternate USB port / computer, try an alternate charge of exact specifications.

Your battery may be damaged, the unit may be damaged. If your Zune is still under warranty, request an RMA from the manufacturer.

If it is NOT still under warrenty, please locate the nearest electronic componant repair shop, or remanufacturer

Creative Zen Vision M won't charge it's battery.

check your usb cable...i had the same problem...

I have a usb cable that came with it ( or some other mp3 player i bought), but it is way too short, so i bought a cheap ($1) and longer usb cable. The computer recognizes the mp3 when connected, but it wont charge with the long and cheap cable.

Maybe you also have a long (or short) cheap usb cable...or maybe your usb cable is plain broke...

You charger/USB maybe damaged if you know anyone who has an iPod nano, ask them if they would try charging your iPod up to see if it's you need a new Charger.

If you've only tryed charging it back main plugs try charging it through the computer.

Because that's probably your problem.

Good luck. Hope my solution helped.
