START MENU, RIGHT CLICK MY COMPUTER, SELECT MANAGE, UNDER STORAGE, CLICK DISK MANAGEMENT, WAIT A FEW SECONDS, THEN ENLARGE THE PAGE, LOOK FOR THE DRIVE, IF FOUND RIGHT CLICK THE DRIVE, SEE IF YOU GET ANY OPTIONS LIKE MARK PARTITION AS ACTIVE. MARK AS ACTIVE. MAKE SURE THAT "ALL" CONNECTIONS ARE CORRECT. ALSO MAY WANT TO GO TO SAMSUNG WEBSITE AND DOWNLOAD THE USER MANUAL. I HAVE A WD 2TB AND I FIND THE TIME TO READ THE TROUBLE SHOOTING AREAS..................HOPE THIS HELPS..............JEFFXC

Lost the instillation disk


Shouldn't need the disc. A pc should detect the player as another drive when connected with a USB and powered on. Should appear as another drive when viewing "My Computer" (assuming you're running windows).

Sansa Fuze player will not connect to the computer


Hello,

The Sansa Fuze information support is on next site:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3249/

Sansa Fuze can connect in either MTP or MSC mode.
MTP is Media Transfer Protocol when a software program like Windows
Media Player 10 or higher is installed.
MSC is Mass Storage Class when the player is detected as an external flash drive in "My Computer".

The connection mode can be set to one of the following USB modes:
auto detect:
the player will connect in MTP or MSC mode. It depends on the drivers that are installed for the USB ports for the operating system and extra media software, if the data on the player can be detected. In auto detect
mode, MTP mode detection is only possible when having Windows Media Player 10 or higher installed.
mtp:
detection on operating system Windows XP SP2 or higher, in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.
msc:
detection on operating system Windows in the explorer in "My Computer" and on MAC operating system.

Look in the manual on page 35 = page 38 in the pdf file, how to switch the USB mode under System Settings in the player:

Media problem


General system error means it's software is corrupted, just reprogram it. It cannot detect by pc because it have no identity at, just reprogram it and it will work fine, maybe it's infected with the virus while you're synchronizing with your pc.

How to download music


hello there!

Simply, connect your MP3 Player or Digital Media Player to your laptop or pc via USB. Then wait to recognize it from your pc. When it recognized, usually it will prompt you that a new hardwared detected and ready to use. Be sure that your MP3 player is plug and play though. Or go the My Computer and select the new drive to use G:// or any recognition. and that's it you can copy songs from pc to the player. By the way, what is the model of your MP3 player?

hope it will help you! Cheers! don't forget to mark!

Device manager wont detect my gogear HDD1630/17 even though i recently updated the software and driver, also my device is frozen on "Please connect player to pc". I can't even get it back to the menu...


I was experiencing this similar problem, and from my research so were alot of other people, what finally worked for me was this:

  • Update all the software on your computer via Phillips site
  • Open the Philips Device Manager
  • With the device connected and the 'connected to pc' screen showing on the GoGear, do a 'soft reset' by holding the Power Off + Volume Up buttons for a few seconds
  • As soon as the device restarts itself, hold the Volume Down button, the computer should now recognize the GoGear
  • Follow the onscreen directions to Repair the device
  • Thank the intarwebs.

Go gear not working


Install and run Device Manager from the product CD.

Select the repair option, and follow the on-screen prompts.

NOTE: ALL FILES LOADED ON TO THE PLAYER WILL BE LOST.


If this doesn't work then it may be that the hard disk is faulty. There is an easy way to find out. The following procedure allows the player to connect to the PC as a removable drive. If the Pc reads the drive, then the drive is ok.

Connect the HDD1630 to the mains adaptor and the PC.

Before the computer has a chance to recognise the player, press "Power" and "Vol +" to reset the player.

As soon as the player resets (screen goes blank) press and hold "Vol -" until the PC recognises the player as a removable drive.

Try to access the player through "My Computer" as you would the main hard disk.
