Connect it backup.

Then go to start > Control Panel > System > Device Manager...

Are there any Yellow Exclamation marks?

"yes there is a question mark and an exclamation mark along side the mp3 usb port.
but i tried removin and installing it loads of times but it still says the same.
the first time i installed it i think i did it with the mp3 connected, do you think that would have destroyed it?".

If you Right click the device in the Device Manager and choose Update Driver. Windows will want to know where to look. Put a tick in "Windows Update"...Be connected to the internet when you are doing this.

I've got a similar USB stick given by Personal Computer World magazine when subscribing and it has the same problem.

It appears to be due to poor connections.

The connecting strips appear to be metallised surface coatings onto plastic and are concave in profile, resulting in them not making reliable contact.

It's so near to useless that I've given up on it.
