    Pay a little more attention to your typing here... Does the player show in My Computer or not?

    sorry about that i ment to say, i can't get it to show up in My Computer.
    the only place i can get it to show is in (Device Manager, Disk Drives, LG UP3S USB Device).... that is the only place i can get it to show that it is pluged in.

    What is the full model number of this Flash Drive? Yes LG calls these MP3 players Flash Drives. So they would show up in Windows as "Mass Storage Devices". A firmware upgrade is available, but I need the full LG model number. In what country or State do you live? Am I correct in saying that English is not your first language?

    Have you tried this LG UP3 on another computer? If you haven't, I suggest you do it ASAP. If another computer has the same problem, the LG UP3 might just be defective

    I have a question if anyone can help.

    I have trouble putting MP3's onto my new UP3 player with half the tracks copying succesfully and the other half failing to only half copy with error message 'Cannot Copy track 02: File path not specified'. Had no problems with other MP3 players and it seems to choose files randomly.

    Is it my PC? Is it a common problem with this brand? The USB plug does seem flimsy.

    Any pointers on a where product support can be given? There must be a way around it...and yes, it is one of the worst MP3 players made. So much for trsuting LG as a brand.

    The MP3 player does come with a mini CD that only has a Win98 driver as its a standard USB Mass storage device that is compatible with all other versions of Windaz...

    Suggestion - try plugging the USB into a different port, on mine it had issues with the front Dell USB ports as they are old USB1.0 every other port is USB2.0 and works fine.

    If you need the lazy driver on the disc PM me and I will try to help you out, its not copyright issue to get drivers as far as I am aware.

    The disc I have also has a firmware update included that does not run on Vista XP only. Maybe this would help your situation.

    LG UP3 problem

    I recently downloaded the firmware update file from the LG website and followed the instructions for the upgrade. To my shock, as soon as the process was "successful", the UP3# player (2GB with OLED display, model LGT-UP-S(B)) went off and hasn't come on since then. When plugged to a PC, it's not even recognized! I've used it for 6 months only. Help needed.

    Does anyone here have a manual for this player? I've been looking hard but can't find one. Doesn't matter what country it's for, as long as it's in English.

    If there's no manual, can someone provide the folder path for storing music on this device?

    That was the first place I looked. :p I did an online chat with their support, too. (prob should have mentioned that, sorry.)

    Unfortunately, they don't seem to archive much for older products. Something to consider if you're looking at one of their current products, imo.

    Thanks anyway. :)
