Hi, I used Media player 8 until recently to transfer music to my jornada and had no problems. I just upgraded to Media Player 9 and love the new features but now it will not recognize my jornada! Any ideas? My activesync works fine, I just don't have a device in the "copy music to CD or portable" drop down box...only my CD burner is recognized! Any ideas welcomed and appreciated!!!
Hey man! Try it again but this time remeber to synchronise ur pocket pc with ur desktop via microsoft activesync before opening windows media player 9 in ur desktop. It happens 2 me sometimes too when I try to sync music into my hp jornada 540 series. And remember to check if u have the latest version of microsoft activesync i.e, microsoft activesync 4.5 because the previous versions of microsoft activesync may not support windows media player 9 synchronisation. Good luck! Tell me if this worked please. Thank u! :)

Only a hint. Did you check the small print via the downloads for Pocket PC on the Microsoft web pages? If you download from the regular OS pages they don't mention that certain Pocket PC generations are not supported.
I noticed this but only on Media Player downloads fom the pocket PC pages but it takes time to find this more detailed info.

Ok when you hook it up and it says MTP just push and hold the Play pause key till it says Usb then it should recognize it .....
now mine recognizes it on both usb and mtp i have win xp pro ...
If you do this and it doesnt work
If you are using Windows XP or Vista, make sure that the player is in the Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) mode. This can be done by pressing the M button. This button is located on the top of your mp3 player. Open Windows Media Player 10 or 11 and follow the directions for transferring (synchronizing) music. If you have Windows Media Player 9 on your XP machine, upgrade to Windows Media Player 10 or 11. This can be done by visiting www.windowsmediaplayer.com. If you are using Windows 98SE,Windows ME, or Windows 2000, you will only be able to transfer music using the USB transfer mode. Open Windows Media Player 9, and follow the directions for transferring (synchronizing) music. If you have version 9 on Windows 98SE or Windows ME, you will need to visit the Download Center for updated drivers.
Weird! I would try an alternative Windows CE MP3 player such as Xaudio or PalmPlayer to see if they do the same thing. I have trouble believing it's hardware related because AFAIK the MP3 decoding is all done in software, but I guess it's possible.
Unfortunately, hp does not have similar software posted on the Jornada website:
that would change the 256 color display to any other option; sorry!
this is a vary old product that nobody uses now. its like DoDo bird.
why use this device, there is no service support at all on it.
if compelled to use legacy devices,
ask at HP so they can all be shocked, posting for this.
