The lock is a small silver slide switch located on the side of the unit labelled as "HOLD". Slide that back to the right.

SOURCE: rca mp3 player wont connect to computer

you can easily download the software by visiting the samsung website - www.samsung.co.uk and going to their support/download page.

The most common faults with this player are

1. The touchpad fails

2. The USB part of the device fails.

These are hardware faults and cannot be rectified other than replacing 1. the touchpad and with 2. the whole unit.

Makje sure you have loaded the software correctly first of all and have restarted your computer.

If you cannot see the player in windows explorer then most likely it is the usb hardware problem.

Hi,

You can try to reset :

http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1382?viewlocale=en_US

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1320?viewlocale=en_US

If you still have the problem you can try restore :

Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.

How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:

1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.

2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.

3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes. If the iPod's display doesn't show "Connected" or "Do not disconnect" you may need to put the iPod into disk mode to proceed.

4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software.

The 4 possible restore options are:

Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.

Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.

Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.

Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.

6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.

7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

For Mac:

1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.

2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.

3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes. If the iPod's display doesn't show "Connected" or "Do not disconnect" you may need to put the iPod into disk mode to proceed.

4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.

5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:

Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.

Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod, even though a newer version is available.

Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with latest iPod Software version on your computer.

Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with latest iPod Software version on your computer.

6. A message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator's name and password.

7. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.

8. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

9. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

Or

Try to reinstall

To update and reinstall your iPod software, first download the latest version of iTunes.

http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Next, open the new version of iTunes and connect your iPod to your computer.

Select your iPod in the source list and click "Check for Update" under the Summary tab. iTunes will check to see if your iPod needs to be updated and perform the update for you.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

I'm released from fed prison and need my mp3 player unlock where do I send it to do so or is there a way I can do it myself


Hello, Tara -

I found some information about the Federal prison MP3 players on the Zoukis Prisoner Resources web site (one of the suppliers of services and products to Federal prisons) here:
https://www.prisonerresource.com/prison-survival-guide/things-to-do-in-prison/mp3-players/

At the end of the information on that web page, it states:
(Quote)
When you leave prison you can take your MP3 Player with you, but you will have to mail it to the Advanced Technologies Group, and pay a $15 fee, for them to remove the 14-day revalidation security feature.
(End quote)

However, the article does not provide the address for Advanced Technologies Group to which you can send your MP3 player.

I did find the Advanced Technologies Group (Keefe Group) website however. I know Keefe supplies many products and services to prisons because I know some Keefe Group employees.

This is the link to the Advanced Technologies Group / Keefe Group Contact Us web page. The phone number for Advanced Technologies Group is in Des Moines, Iowa. Call that number and ask to find out about sending your MP3 player to them, with a check or other payment information.

Best wishes.

I have a Amp'd Maxxpro that I received in prison. How do I remove the security software so I can be able to download music to it. Also my computer keeps stating that it is MSC device.


MSC is a set of protocols for managing communication between USB storage devices and operating systems.


In order to change the software the device would have to be wiped clean, and the original software installed back on it, you will have to contact the device manufacturer of obtaining the software if it is even passable to install it without specialized equipment.

I have an mp3 player that I purchased while locked up in a Federal prison, I am now at home and want to find out how to remove the security device.


Can you force it to do a "factory reset" ?
This would reset it to a state BEFORE the prison's I.T. team installed any software.

Amp'd maxx 4gig mp3 used with access corrections


It's a mp3 player that we got in prison. It's locked with software that won't allow us to connect it to a computer and manage files unless we pay a $25 unlocking fee. We're trying to find out if there's a way to get around the software that has locked our files(that we paid for) in our player. It's not the switch eather. That's only for locking the key pad.

Need security software for amp'd mp3 player


Success! If you own an AMP'D MP3 player and have been suspicious about the manufacturer's claim that attaching it to a computer will disable it....you were right to be suspicious. Leaving the device turned OFF, attach it to your computer with a USB cable, after Windows cannot find a driver, go into DEVICE MANAGER and select the device and install the ADDONICS USB STORAGE DEVICE driver located under the UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLER Header. Again, leave your MP3 Player OFF. After the driver installs Windows should assign the player a drive letter and then you can simply copy the music you have to your computer. Additionally, you can write TO the player, using it as a portable mass storage device.

It wont pop up in the computer when i connected.


Some mp3 players, such as ipods, require a 2.0 usb connection. Most ports on the front of computers are only 1.1 and this is not even enough power to charge some mp3 players, such as an ipod.

A. Have you tried connecting the mp3 player to a different port?
B. Have you installed any software/drivers that may have come with the mp3 player on a cd? Most software is available for download if you have lost a cd or the mp3 player did not come with one. Most mp3 players do not require software to access and load music.
