    Last time I formatted my Mp3 player with fat32 it wiped everything including the software which enabled the device to run so whenever I turned it on it came up with '!!ERROR!! Please connect to PC'. After reinstalling the software back onto the MP3 it worked again. Not sure if this is the same problem as yours but I know that my PC didn't detect any MP3 last time either.

    tahnks for your concern

    really i tried sevral time to update the firm ware and every time success
    and still the problem

    i don't know if this problem concerning the firm ware or the memory chip after fat32 formating
    and i can't find a way to reformate it with fat system or see it in my computer as a remvable drive

    it's only appears in the device manager as a universal buss controller

    It's possible that when you did a firmware upgrade the wrong update was used. This will have the same effect as flashing a MBoard with the wrong could end up with an expensive paperweight.
    Have you contacted the manufacturer's site and seen if this can be corrected ? ?
