MP3 driver

  SylvesterMagic 09:30 28 Dec 2004

Bit of a long shot... I was bought an MP3 player for Christmas. It's a 128MB solid state type, one of the small stick looking ones.
Although it says it's a "Sony A380" I'm sure it's a cheap imitation because none of the packaging or instructions are Sony.

It's a bit of tat but I'd like to try and get it working! Trouble is the driver CD I was given with it gives me a "Not checked as compliant for Windows XP" error message when I try to load it so I'm nervous about using it.

I was wondering if there was any such thing as a generic (and safe) driver/programme that I could download from somewhere so that I can download MP3s on to the player?

Any help would be really appreciated.

Load the driver that came with it.

The majority of drivers are not windows compliant because it takes Msoft so long to check then that an update has been brought out before they are authorised.

Just another scam by Msoft to make more money.

Have you tried plugging it in & getting windows to recognise it as a USB mass storage device?

Most of the cheap ones are just a flash drive with a built in MP3 decoder, so you can just copy MP3s across using windows explorer.
