My computer won't recognize the mp3 as a drive, it will recognize it as a device. which makes my life difficult. i can't upload music to it just by rip the cd directly to it - like with many other MP3's. i have to rip music to my library and then use Sync to transfer the songs. the same if i download music from the net, it has to be saved on to my hard drive and from there transfer to my MP3.
is there any way of making things easier and get my computer to accept my mp3 as a removable drive?

Try reformatting your device, that should do the trick! Also, make sure that your drivers on your computer support that divice! Also, make sure your drivers are updated fully! Also, maybe you have a bad sync cord!
Go into your Start Menu and right click on My Computer and choose "Properties" from the menu. Click on the Hardware tab on the new window that opened. Select Device Manager. Check to see if your device is recognized under Windows Portable Devices. If your device is not recognized here,what i would recommend you to do is to uinstall the device.
To uninstall the devid just right click on the device name and hit uninstall...the device usually listed under disk drives, portable devices and univeral serial bus controllers.. Once you uninstall the device..you will need to make sure what mode you have the device...turn the device on and click under setting and look for usb mode...then you want to make sure its under MTP mode or Auto....then what you will want to do is to plug the device on that back of the computer not the front...then windows should recognize it...if that doesnt do it you will need to contact the manufacturer of the device. 3. Open Windows Media Player and go to the Sync section. It should be recognized on the right-hand side. If it is not, or if your device has a drive letter after its name (for example F :), your device is not being properly recognized by the computer and you will have to contact the manufacturer of the device. 4. If it is seen in Windows Media Player then disconnect the Device and close all programs. Next we are going to make sure that Windows Media Player is not storing unnecessary information about your device:
1. Open Windows Media Player. 2. Maximize the program and choose the Tools > Options menu. 3. Click on the Privacy Tab in the open window and choose "Clear Caches" and "Clear History". 4. Re-connect your device and choose "Manual" and "Permanent" on the window that opens. 5. Close Windows Media Player.
