See if the device manufacturer has any updated drivers for your OS. Smiley

Go back to SP1? Eesh, what kind of advice is that... It's like saying "What, your car won't fit in your garage? Well just leave the door open then."

Got a make/model and someone with spare time can look into it for you? I'm sure there'll be a way to talk to it as a memory stick rather than using the MTP.

i have tried connecting it without the battery to see if it would recognise it as a memory stick but it has made no difference.

Make sure that you have the latest version of Windows Media Player and after any update make sure that you reboot your PC. They try opening Windows Media Player and, with it still open, connecting the MP3 player. Also try any other USB ports that are available.
