The drivers and software appear to have loaded, and the mp/player when installed in the usb port does light up and recognise with powered USB on display, but there is nothing on "my computer" that i can see as a drive and when i click on the player software it says no player found I am running Win XP.Its an MP Man 128mb Storage with voice recorder and pocki drive. Any help would be make my new year.

If you go to device manager under systems you'll probably find a question mark under something like USB hub. Right click on this, then driver, then update driver and the drivers should install from there. Good luck!

Rickf, ta for quick response. I had tried that all through device manager etc. It did say I had maybe too many USB devices hooked up and that they may be drawing to much power for the MP3 to work. I've unplugged all devices, then tried again but still no joy. Any other clues?

You shouldn't need to install a driver for XP.

Try uninstalling the player and then letting Windows install it for you - it should see it as a removable drive.

An unpowered USB hub would also cause problems.

Stuartli is probably right. When i tried to install my bluetooth adapter and it's software the computer didn't find it (XP). After uninstalling the software i used windows' drivers and now it works fine. Give it a go.
