Ideally you should go to Philips and download the HDD1630/17b software and firmware and print off the instructions and redo your player

Please connect player to pc

You have to run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager - that is the solutino to the problem. If the repair fails, your mp3 player is toast - call Philips to see if you are in-warranty.

Computer not detecting

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, 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.

THEN, do the "Repair" in the Philips Device Manager

My computer don't found my mp3

The HDD1630 is only compatible with Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10.

If you have Windows Media Player 11, unistall it to roll back to version 10.

Install and run the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

Connect the HDD1630 to the power supply and connect to the PC.

The MP3 player should show as an MTP device. There should be a connection icon on the player screen.

Start Windows Media Player, and select the SYNC option to transfer music.
