Windows Media Player in this case has a script error that causes it not to respond on any OS platform that has yet to be fixed by updates. I have currently updated it to its fullest and it refuses to respond properly on windows xp, let alone beta versions of windows like windows 7. My suggestion is forget windows media player 11 and go download VLC player which plays more things off the bat anyways. Its free and easy and small. There is also any number of other media players like Realplayer, Quicktime, or Windows Media Player Classic.

Try to download it again, cause maybe the upgrade that you have downloaded is not complete or has corrupt files in order for it function well. if you have tried to download it again and theres no positive results, just uninstall and just use the older version for the meantime.

Hi liz enriquez...
Here is a little help on downloading some songs to your mp3 player and then how to delete from your mp3 player

Downloading songs:
1...You must download and install Windows Media Player 11 on your computer.
NOTE...Some older MP3 players will not work with Windows Media Player 11 or Windows 7 with Windows Media Player 11.
If this happens to you, then you will have to uninstall Windows Media Player 11 and install Windows Media Player 10.
2...After you have downloaded and installed Media Player on your computer.
3...Open Media Player on your computer.
4...Install all your music into Media Player that you want to install on your MP3 player.
5...Plug in your MP3 player to the computer using your Data/Sync cord, be sure that Windows Media Player is on.
6...Media player should recognize the MP3 player and sync with it.
7...After it is sync'ed with the computer,you can add the music you have installed into Windows Media Player to your MP3 Player.

Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio Books, Apps,etc. from MP3 Player/Ipod below:

Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release,right click and then click on "Delete"

ANSWER QUICKLY PLEASE!!!


There could be more than one reason - the most likely is that the HOLD button has been engaged. Your USB port may not be 2.0 - try a different usb port on your computer. You could be running Windows Vista or some other incompatible OS. You may have forgotten to download the install CD. The following information is straight from GPX themselves:
"What if I cannot troubleshoot an error message?" You will need to format your player. Connect the player to your computer using your USB cable. Make sure the HOLD switch is in the unlocked position.
Formatting can be done in two ways:
  1. Within the Start menu, select My Computer. In the My Computer folder, right-click on the icon representing your GPX player. You will be given a list of options. One of them will be to Format your drive. Click on this to erase everything on your GPX player. A warning will pop up to make certain that this is the choice that you want to select. Once your player is formatted, reload your music files onto your GPX player.
  2. Open Windows Media Player. In version 10, open the Sync tab. On the right-hand side, there will be a listing for GPX audio player. Just above this and to the right are a set of four icons. The icon furthest to the right represents, “Format storage media.” This icon resembles a pencil. After formatting, synchronize music to the player. In version 11, open the Sync tab. On the far left column, there should be a listing for GPX Audio Player. Right-clicking on this listing will result in a menu containing Format. Select this to erase everything on your mp3 player.

yay I found a solution! so I kept getting the error about an MTP device, so I did a big search. I am running vista on a 32 bit processor. what you need to download is the MTP installation programme from windows. so click on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939211
and then just select what processor speed you need. should do the trick! I also downloaded http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A2E73160-E862-4F19-BB26-C0CAFE798955&displaylang=en initially, but it didn't appear to work. hope that you all get to the bottom of this frustrating problem :)
