mp4 problems

  DEMONTRA 23:11 23 Jan 2006

Does anyone out there know anything about mp4 players.I recently bought one for my son through the internet and it played okay for a couple of weeks but now it has stopped working.I bought it from Hong Kong seller on ebay so I contacted them about what sort of help they could provide.Not surprisingly they advised returning it but I'd much prefer trying to get it sorted without that sort of expense.The problem basically is that it won't charge up and when my son connected it to the pc the player wasn't recognised.Please help if you can.

What make and model is it, and what's wrong with it exactly?

Oops, sorry, just read the last line of your post properly. Does it have a separate charger or does it charge via the PC's USB port? If so, try connecting it to a port on the PC itself rather than a hub - it's possible it's not drawing enough power from a hub.

I am expereincing the same problems you had last year and I think I bought it from the same buyer from Hong Kong on Ebay. Did you ever come up with a resolution?

Take it easy!I think we have some puzzle need to be checked according to ur phenomenon?
1.Make sure the data cable still work well,you can have a try on another PC considering u have only one data cable.
2.make sure the MP4 was unlocked before linking to the PC.
3.Make sure ur son's PC hadn't been aggrieved by the virus.
4.Make sure the USB interface of ur son's PC is working normally!
Check this first ,do not forget to tell me the result.
