I have researched the internet in search of my problem. I have a FY500 player which I have just bought in the beginning of the year. When I connect the device to the USB cable to my computer, the computer will not recognize the device. I haven't had any problems up until a few weeks ago, although I had not tried to download any music for a few months and all of a sudden I am having this problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Try plugging your USB cable (attached to your player) into the computer before you turn the computer on and boot up . . . I had this same problem with a flash drive that the computer would not recognize if I plugged it into the computer while the computer was already on.

Go to Device Manager To get to Device Manager you will: Right click on My Computer>Properties>click the Hardware Tab>Device Manager. After you are in Device Manager look for your MP3 player or Unit. Here you should see no "Yellow" exclamation points. If you do they they are telling you that you have a device conflict. If you currently have your unit plugged in, you may notice the "unknown device" which would be your Player or Unit. If you unit has an exclamation point by it, then you will need to click on it and delete it. After you remove all devices with conflicts then click on refresh and search again for your MP3 player/Device. The computer should install your device this time and solve your problem with connection of the MP3 player/Device. Please take time to rate me. Bud

If you do then it means that you have a device conflict.

Click on any item that has the exclamation and remove it.
After you remove all devices with conflicts and then click on refresh, and you will search for your MP3 player.

There are two possible options (these are not guaranteed to work):
1) Go to www.microsoft.com, enter your mp3 player model number in the search tab and see if a new driver has been developed for this device to make it compatible with Vista
2) With your mp3 player plugged in to the computer, go to Start --> Control Panel --> Systema nd Maintenance --> Device Manager
3) Find your mp3 player on the list and double-click the device; click on driver tab and then update driver - select the option that allows you to search the computer AND the internet for the driver (make sure you are connected to the internet BEFORE selecting this option); if you do not see your exact mp3 player name on the list, look for a similar looking name on the list such as "MTP Device"; also, look for devices with a yellow exclamation mark next to them - this is a sign of a device needing a repair or driver update
right click on computer then 1. click properties 2.hardware 3.device manager 4.universal serial bus controller(open the + sign) 5.click upper one double click 6 go to driver 7.click on the update driver 8. then choose second one (advanced) then next 9.click don't search 10.then next next if it is over same process with anotherone then restart your computer and enjoy you ipod and don't forget to give rating
