I am using Windows XPHome. I recently purchased a Technika MP3 player - Model MP407 (2gb). When I attach it to my PC I am advised that new hardware has been detected and that no drivers can be found on the pc. I am then asked if I have the installation cd. When the cd is read I get a message saying that the driver cannot be located on the disc as the disc does not contain a driver for XP - please contact purchasers helpdesk (Code 28). Having done this I was advised to visit the relative website and download the driver from there. Having done this and tried installing the driver I only succeed in getting exactly the same message as before (Code 28).
Can anyone out there help me please.
Thanking you in anticipation.

You should not need a driver for XP

Refresh USB Ports
In device manager Uninstall EVERYTHING under the heading USB,
reboot the PC let XP find and install new hardware.
Your equipment should now be recognised.

you can get the driver from tesco
ive dwnloaded n checked it

but this is usually for win 98 machines

click here

as fruity pointed out its just a case of plug n play on xp machines the device will show up in mycomputer as a new drive ie say u have c drive for operating system then d drive for dvd the e drive will be the mp3 player
all you do is drag and drop the music to this to send it to the mps player
it works like a memorey stick as its a hot swappable item run thru the usb

check your windows is upto date
