If the device is visible from the computer, format the disk as described in the product page's video tutorials.

Sounds like the battery may have come loose. Remove the 4 screws on the back, remove and reinsert the battery. Charge the device for a few hours. Best of Luck.

Music won't open


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

I have just bought a new sansa clip. i have successfully uploaded music to the the player and i can hear it well. now when i try to access the player through the computer i cannot access the music and...


Hi, are you sure the computer is recognizing your player?...if not....

player not recognized by the computer

This may be caused by one of the following:
1. Minimum system requirements were not met.
2. Corrupted drivers.
3. Computer restrictions.
4. Power issue.

To resolve this issue, try the following solutions:

SOLUTION 1 - For brand new player or first time connecting to this computer.

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.

For MAC users, see Sansa player not recognized by a MAC OS

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.



SOLUTION 2 - Refresh the driver

STEP 1 - Connect the Sansa player to the PC
The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery 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.
- If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up in 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. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.


STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager
1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage.
Image
2. Click Device Manager on the left pane.
Image

NOTE: Sansa MP3 Players can connect to your computer in MSC or MTP mode. Exceptions are mitone mp4 player Connect and mitone mp4 player Express which only use MTP mode. MTP mode is the recommended and default method for mitone mp4 player Players when used with Windows OS.

The mitone mp4 player player 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, try to refresh the drivers.


STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers
1. Right-click the entry with 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. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.


Hope it helped ..

Have a nice day..

How to put music on it


1st - You need to convert your CDs to MP3 music files.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.
There are also Freeware CD RIP programs on the Internet that can create music title and album folders automatically.
OR
Download MP3 music files from the Internet, some sites will cost money to download these music files.

2nd - connect your MP3 player to your computer using the supplied USB cable. The computer will see this player as an external storage device, Just copy the MP3 music files from the computer's hard disk to the MP3 player.

NOTE - When the USB cable is connected to the computer, it will also charge the MP3 player's battery.

I need to download music and there is no file for


Hello,

Using XP, the player should be detected through the USB port of the computer as a removable disk [also called MSC device].
note:
Before disconnecting the player, always go through the icon "Safely remove hardware" in the right corner below of the computer screen, to keep the player free from data loss or data faillure.

----------
First prepare the player before connection / check normal working of the player:
0. Player NOT connected to the computer
1. Switch the player ON using the >| button
2. Check the HOLD icon in the display: padlock should be OFF
3. When the padlock shows up, unlock the player: slide the HOLD switch to the left: padlock should not show in the display now.
4. Switch the player OFF, holding the >| for about 3 seconds.

When the player should not behave normal, perform a RESET.
0. Disconnect the player if connected to a computer.
1. Remove the battery from the player and leave it out for 10 seconds.
2. Replace the battery.
3. Power ON the player with the >| button and see if the player works normally.
4. Switch OFF the player, holding the >| button for 3 seconds.
----------

How to check the detection of the MSC device on your computer:
0. Player Normal Functioning, NOT connected, NOT locked and switched OFF.
1. Explore 'My Computer': click start in the left corner below of the computer screen and select 'My Computer'.
2. Connect the MP300 to a USB port; detection may take some time.
3. Look on the computer screen if a new removable disk shows up in the explorer overview, coming up with a new drive letter.
4. Now you should be able to put music onto the player, showing up as a removable disk with the new drive letter: use 'copy and paste' or 'drag and drop' method for music transfers.
note:
Before disconnecting the player, always go through the icon "Safely remove hardware" in the right corner below of the computer screen, to keep the player free from data loss or data faillure.

When no new drive letter shows up, try another USB port.
Connect directly to the computer, not through a hub.
If you need more help, tell me at what point connecting or transferring fails in this thread.

There's also a software program called Coby Media Manager that can be used for detection or transfers. Coby Media Manager is based on MTP connection mode.
Need help for this ? Write your comment in this thread.

I have albums in my pc and want to transfer the albums to my nokia 97?


Not sure if you meant photo album or music album??? Here is the steps for both, music first:

Transfer music from a
computer
You can use the following methods to transfer
music:
● To install Nokia Music to manage and organise
your music files, download the PC software from
www.music.nokia.com/download, and follow
the instructions.
● To view your device on a computer as a mass
memory device where you can transfer any data
files, make the connection with a compatible USB
data cable or Bluetooth connectivity. If you are
using a USB data cable, select Mass storage as
the connection mode.
● To synchronise music with Windows Media
Player, connect a compatible USB data cable, and
select Media transfer as the connection mode.
To change the default USB connection mode, select
Menu > Settings and Connectivity > USB > USB
connection mode.

This works for music, photos, or video:
Select Menu > Settings and Connectivity >
USB.
To have the device
ask the purpose of
the connection
each time a
compatible data
cable is connected,
select Ask on connection > Yes.
If the Ask on connection option is turned off or you
want to change the mode during an active
connection, select USB connection mode and from
the following:
● PC Suite — Use Nokia PC applications such as
Nokia Ovi Suite, and Nokia Software Updater.
● Mass storage — Transfer data between your
device and a compatible PC.
● Image transfer — Print images with a
compatible printer.
● Media transfer — Synchronise music with Nokia
Music or Windows Media Player.

Froze on the screen


Here's what you want to do:
1) Back up all music and picture files if possible
2) With the GoGear powered on, reset the player by holding the power on/off and volume + keys simultaneously until the GoGear shuts down
3) Turn the GoGear back on and see if message persists

If the "please connect player to PC" msg persists:
1) Connect GoGear to computer
2) Open Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips in Windows XP if no shortcut on desktop)
3) Click on the Repair tab - see if there is a msg that says something like "to repair your player, connect GoGear to computer while holding the volume + button"
4)IMPORTANT: Disconnect the GoGear from the USB cable, turn the GoGear OFF, and then press and hold the volume + button; then, connect your GoGear to PC while still holding the volume + button (VERY IMPORTANT: this process will fix your player, but it will also delete all music and images you have stored on the GoGear) - do not let go of the Volume + button until a pop-up comes up saying that your player is being repaired

After the repair process is complete, your player should work fine - you will have to re-download all files to the GoGear.
