My computer says found new hardware but when it tryies to install it says there was a problem does a search and finds nothing. So i cant update the firm ware,i already formated the zen but it did nothing...


When you experience next making connection:
Connecting the device to the computer Wizard found new hardware pops up.
Only this time the Windows update searching for software will not work on automatic routine:
ending up with "Cannot Install this Hardware".

Solution:
Manual performing the wizard, setting the device to USB connection type:
1. Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software ?
Select "No, not this time".
[Next]
2. If your hardware came with an installation CD, or floppy disk, insert it now.
Select "Install from a list or specific location(Advanced)."
[Next]
3. Please use your search and installations options.
Select "Don't search I will choose the driver to install."
[Next]
4. Select the device driver you want to install for this hardware.
Select "USB Mass Storage Device."
[Finish]

Note: when using MSC mode always safely remove hardware, the players' removable disk. The icon in the right corner of the task bar.

Once the device can be reached in MSC mode it should be ready to install new firmware on the player:
1. Backup data on the player to the computer when not on the PC already.
2. Reinstall / update firmware from computer to the player: after this the device will have all the maps for writing data and it can be approached in MTP mode again, using application software like Windows Media Player 11.

Tip

My Computer won't recognize my MP3 player...


For Windows XP users: verify the following operating system requirements are met.- Windows XP SP2 or higher- Windows Media Player 10 or higher
Download and install the latest Windows Media Player if it's not installed.
For Windows Vista users: If the player is seen in My Computer when using MTP mode, but not showing in Windows Media Player.- Download the hotfix from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939211.- Run the hotfix.
NOTE: If you are trying to connect to a Computer at work that is part of a network, there may be user right restrictions that are set to disable access to new hardware or stop any program installations. You may need to check with your IT administrator to see if this is causing the problem.
Next:-- Refresh the drivers. Connect the MP3 player to the PC. The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery is charging or full. - If the player does not turn on try other USB ports or on another computer if one is readily available. Ensure you are connecting directly to the computer USB port and not to a USB hub.NOTE: - If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up as a storage device in an explorer window, then the screen is just not working. If you receive the error "USB Device Not Recognized" on the computer, the player is most likely failed.
Next - Check under Device Manager1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage. 2. Click Device Manager on the left pane.
NOTE: Most MP3 Players can connect to your computer in MSC or MTP mode. There are exceptions which only use MTP mode. MTP mode is the recommended and default method for some MP3 players. Some players will show up on Device Manager's right pane as:1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC)2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode)
If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, refresh the drivers. To refresh the drivers1. Right-click the error mark, select Uninstall.2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.
NOTE: If a device with yellow exclamation point (!) continually appears and disappears, then the player is most likely failed.
Next: - Connect using MSC mode Connecting in MSC mode will help determine if there is a problem with MTP mode or with the Auto Detect mode feature of the player.
The USB Mode setting can be enabled on some players after updating to the latest firmware. If the player is detected in MSC mode but not when set to MTP mode, try to update or reinstall the firmware.

I put the usb port in the computer and it will say the computer has found new hardware and for me to install it when i do it will say hardware can't install. what do i do?


Selecting or switching automatically MTP < > MSC
Connecting the player before a media software program is installed, the player will connect as a flash drive also called removable disk in MSC mode.
There are 2 settings for connection mode in the player, MTP and MSC.
See page 36 of the manual for more information and how to set the USB mode:
http://www.cobyusa.com/files/manuals/MP705_MN.pdf

USB mode MTP
Install Windows Media Player 11 for MTP connection to the computer.
When needing a media player update from Microsoft see:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx


USB mode MSC

Connecting the device to the computer Wizard found new hardware pops up.

MP3 player freezes in MTP mode when using Rhapsody


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
-----
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Try to add the device manually.

Plug the player in while it’s set to "MTP" mode. (This selection is in the Settings area)

On your computer, open Device Manager, and select: Add Hardware.

Choose the "already connected the hardware" option.

From list, choose "Add a new hardware device".

Select: "Install the hardware that I manually select from a list."

Select: Portable Devices, then MTP device.

Hope it works for you.

Go in Control Pannel ->Add Hardware -> Next
Then choose Yes, I have already connected the hardware -> Next
Select MTP device form the list (it is somewhere at the buttom) -> Next
And finish the instralation
Then go to Control Pannel -> Portable Media devices and you will see your mp3 player there.
It is now connected to your computer and you can put your music on.

I hope this is the solution to your problem
