Okay someone here has the chance to save my sanity !!I have an MP3 player (unbranded from Ebay) that will not install properly in winXP - ie, plug ing - says found hardware "USB2.0 Flash Drive" but cannot find drivers Yet, on another frinds PC it finds itself fine as a drive with removable storage and I can drag and drop files no problemBoth PCs are WinXP with SP2I have heard that there is an issue with the "licenses" ?? to do with winXP? Any ideas / suggestions / info greatfully received
does your pc have USB 2.0 ? there are occassions when a machine will not accept gadgets like this if you do not have usb 2.0.The hardware list in My Computer, properties under USB may point you to this and show as a usb 2.0 port or controller.
did you not get a driver cd with it? (obvious question I know)I'm completely guessing here but rather than liscenses would it be the different times of releases of XP?? Like now all XP disks come with SP2 on it, they didn't before, could driver support have changed within XP in the time from you got your copy til when your friend got theirs?
Chip Bitt you make more sense than I do, I'm a bit imaginative at times to say the least.
1) My PC does not have USB2 (my first thought as to what it might be) but my friends dosent either...2) My friends IS a more recent PC (by about 18 months) but surely having all windows updates would solve that??3) Both have SP2 installed
Maybe not driver support? Again a guess, is there no manufacturer listed on the device at all and no cd etc came with it?
maybe you could put it back on your friends pc and have a look at the 'driver details' that it uses on his, then on yours somehow (someone will give details) update(?)install driver from your XP cdjust a suggestion that someone could maybe take up as I am only guessing.
