I had the same problem, which I solved by downloading an update to the 530's firmware, at http://www.transcend.nl/support/dlcenter/Driver/TS530FWV1.4.zip
When I ran it, it told me the unit had to be reinitialized, which I accepted. Unit went off, then I unplugged it, plugged it back in, and the new hardware found wizard went on. After letting it run, I got the message that the hardware was installed. However, the unit did not appear in my list of available drives. I then ran the firmware update again, and voila! The unit's memory can be accessed.

From page 7 of the manual:

Reminders
1.
Make sure the LOCK switch is set to “OFF” before trying to Power ON the unit.
2. Never use the “Quick Format,” or “Full Format” in Windows® to format your T.sonic™ 530.
3. Follow the procedures in the “Disconnecting from a Computer” section to remove your T.sonic™
530
from a computer.

Philips SA1100/02 mp3 player not getting ON

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Comments: - 1. Connect the player to the PC using the USB cable. 2. Open Windows Media Player. 3. Go to the Sync or Devices tab and delete all content from the player. 4. Go to the Tools menu and select Options. 5. Select the Devices tab, highlight the ILO or Siren player and click on Properties. 6. Uncheck the box "Create Folder Hierarchy on Device" Good Luck dont forget to rate me......

Incorrect format

The songs that you loaded onto the player are not in the correct format - iTunes, DRM-encrypt. WMA are not allowed, for instance. Convert everything to mp3 format. It is asking you to reformat the player because it wants you to delete the wrong-formatted songs off the player. I would check your user manual to find the best way to reformat.

In general, though, there are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware.
