Problems with MP3 Player and USB port.

Hi all,

I have recently purchased an 128mb MP3 player.

When I connect the MP3 player to my (win xp) PC through USB port the PC recognises it then rejects it, then the MP3 switches itself off after about 2 or 3 seconds! I have tried the MP3 player on other PC's and it works with out a problem! Also my mates MP3 player works fine on my PC?!?!?

Anyone out there have any idea's what the problem might be?

Many Thanks

All I can think of is that perhaps your powersupply is not able to provide the necessary power and when overloaded it will turn off a peripheral.

Can you unplug any other USB peripherals and see what happens?
