bit more information - which MP3 player are you using? It probably needs drivers installed ...

With Ipod I think you have to format it first using the software if I remember correctly.

Did it come with software?

If it's a pen drive type, you won't need drivers. It should be recognised as a mass storage device. You can then drag and drop mp3 files onto it's icon in My Computer.

What's Teleadapt? Google suggests it's an online retailer. What make of MP3 player have you got? Under XP most MP3 players - including iPods - show up as a drive under My Computer.

I'm having the same problem with my Sandisk MP3 player - it is not recognised as a USB device or removable storage device. Laptop beeps when I plug in or remove it, but it is listed in Device Drivers as "Other Devices" MPDX1 MP3 with a yellow Question mark and Code 28 error.

This should be plug and play with XP Home, and my USB mouse and Canon camera USB connections work fine. I have checked all the services settings as automatic and started without success. The drive works fine on my wife's Windows ME laptop.

I may have installed the 98SE driver by mistake as it started the Wizard and asked for a driver disk when I first inserted it. Where can I find the W98SE driver so I can delete or uninstall it?
