No exit here.

How about where you bought it from? Ask them.

Details.

In reply to: mp3

You didn't tell me enough detail. Did it show up as a drive letter?

Please apply yourself a little bit more so I can lock onto what it could be on your other machine.

Nothing happens when i put it in my computer i just get the sound like when you put a flash stick in. It doesent show up anywhere not even as drive letter or mtp player. But when i put my flash stick in the same usb port it works. On the MP3 player it says its connected to the computer but its not.

You didn't answer my question.

In reply to: Windows doesent find my mp3 player

I need to know if it showed up as a drive letter on ANY machine.

You can also fill in some blanks such as versions of IE and WMP. Hint! WMP 11 is known to break such things. My answer to that is don't go to WMP 11.

Reinstall WMP to restore MTP drivers

In reply to: Windows doesent find my mp3 player

OK. This sounds stupid, but uninstall whatever version of WMP you have, then re-install the latest version. The MTP drivers come with Windows Media Player, and somehow, they get moved or deleted (don't ask me how). There may be an easier way to restore the drivers, so anyone can chime in on this.

Not s_word but good advice.

In reply to: Reinstall WMP to restore MTP drivers

Here my advice is to steer clear of WMP 11 too.

It's breaking some players.

http://www.tonychor.com/archive/000465.html notes "I'd been tempted to try WMP 11 but it breaks synchronization with my PDA (using Pocket Tunes from normsoft). It's my understanding other music products may no longer work correctly after installing WMP 11 as well."

I've seen that!
