Aigo MP3 player

  BoilerOil 09:54 01 Mar 2006


Yesterday I purchased a Aigo model: UM-A208 MP3 player from Argos.

When plugged into the USB2 port,it should say USB connected,it does not. But on its screen it says reading, my computer could not detect it, and when trying to access other programmes I find Im locked out.

I returned the MP3 player to Argos, they replaced it, this MP3 player is exactly the same.
I click on "My Computer" and all that is there is Local Disk(C:) Floppy(A:) DVD-RW Drive(D:).
It came with a CD-rom and driver software for windows 98SE only. Even with this installed it does not work.

My Easy MP3 player can be detected with no trouble and shows up as Removable Disk (E:)

My System is:
Microsoft Windows XP,
Home Edition Version 2002,
Service Pack 2.

Thank you for your help.

Have one myself, no probs with it at all, unlike a Philips that cost three times the amount and ended up in the trash bin.
XP will or should detect the mp3 player automatically.
If you've installed the drivers from the CD uni stall them as they could conflict.
Try using a different USB port.
Also check that the battery is OK & connected correctly, it sounds daft but a loose connection has caused many a prob.

have Xp it did recognise Aigo when first inserted in usb a month ago, downloaded music tracks, worked o.k. for 3 weeks, now it is not working in any of the usb ports, replaced battery, hold is off, and it is just dead, no display, no usb connection, no music!

Got one of these for my Dad for Christmas. I'm having the same problem.
We connect it to the computer and the computer knows its there because it tones to recognise a usb device. Sometimes it comes up in my computer and sometimes not. If it appears as a removable drive in my computer then when you copy fies to it windows gives the error 'file cannot be found'.
If you click on properties, the drive shows that it has 0mb free of 0mb. Which is clearly wrong.
The battery came with it and shows full charge, but will try another just in caese. Just need to find a spare AAA!

Found a rechargeable battery, still the same problem.

have no problems but found 500 mp3 files limiting
but by using "magix audio cleaning lab" one can load say 20 songs delete the track markers and then export them as 1 file

Make sure you have taken the battery out when you connect to the USB port.
I forgot the other day and it caused probs.
Hope this helps.
