    when i plug it in, I can't find it on my computer.. Help?

  • saratague Sep 19, 2008

    I have the same problem - It recognizes that it's plugged into the computer because the screen on the actual MP3 player says "MTP Connected", but it's not coming up on my computer.

    If you figure out how to fix this, can you please send me an email?

    Thanks!!!

Hi, I just bought this, and have the same problem. Luckily, I found the solution on SanDisk web site:

https://www.customernation.com/pls/ps/ps.ps_main?p_host=304&p_supplier=5096&p_parm=PSHFAQ&p_subcategory=&p_product=

Just go to your mp3 player and set it to MSC. After I did that, it shows up as a USB device on my computer right away. Hope this helps you too.

Hi,
Install the Windows driver included in the product package before connecting your Sylvania MP3 player. Insert the included driver CD into your CD-ROM drive and run the setup file if it does not load automatically. This driver makes sure your computer can recognize and operate the Sylvania MP3 player.

    MUSIC ON MP3 BUT NOT PLAY ANY ON THE PLAYER.


    The manual is available on the Playskool website. Go to www.playskool.com and search "made for me". Unfortunately, mine doesn't work, and that's all you get from the web site - a copy of the manual.

    How to put limewire songs to my mp3 without having to download anything


    You will not need to download anything to Transfer Mp3s from Limewire to this Player. The songs you downloaded from Limewire should be in a folder somewhere. When you set up Limewire you created this folder or used the default folder they provided. Just connect your Mp3 player to your computer. Your computer should recognize it as a drive and Appear in "My Computer". Double click on the Mp3 player icon in My Computer. This will open up the player. Then with the player and the Limewire folder open just drag the Mp3s onto your Player. You can also use this little player as a USB storage device to store other files. If this did not help you please post a follow up comment and I am sure I can help you.

    How to make the mp3 player work


    Plug mp3 player in to usb. Does your computer recognize mp3 player? If yes, than go to "start menu" than "my/computer", than you will see drive folder with mp3 player. Leave this window up.

    Now find your music folder with songs. Click song file, drag file to mp3 player drive folder and drop it in there. It will be added on your mp3 player.

    Another way mabey easier, is to open media player, click sync device, Now media player can read mp3 player. In media player, find your songs in library or the folder that has them. click on "songs" or song file and drag it to the right side of media player and add it to the list of songs that will be added to mp3 player. Once all the songs are in the list on the right side, you can click the button at the bottom and they will be added to mp3 player.



    IF YOUR COMPUTER DOESN'T RECOGNIZE YOUR MP3 PLAYER, YOU WILL NEED TO SEARCH AND FIND THE DRIVER FOR IT AND INSTALL IT.

    Loading mp3 files to garmin nuvi 350


    The device is not recognizing the file name. The Garmin GPS will only recognize MP3 files. Ipod (MP4) and other media files will not play. Converting the files to the MP3 format will correct the problem.

    PC and MP3 can connect, but can't communicate!


    Try changing the mode on the device.

    Settings>Mode or USB, then try your transfer again.

    If that doesnt work, try formatting the device thru Computer management.





    Best of Luck.
