My daughter plugged in her generic mp3 player (iPod look a like) to my computer and somehow Vista has turned it into a boot loader device. When I try to open the icon it asks me to insert a disk and through device manager it lists it as USB 2.0 Boot Loader USB Device in disk drives. For the sake of my daughters sanity can someone help me make it play the loud horrible music she like to listen to?

Iíve tried it on several different systems. vista and xp. All say the same result. If you know of a generic mp3 driver I can try it would be most helpful.

Hello and welcome to BC :thumbsup:

My first step would be to format the device.
Plug it in to your computer, click My Computer, then find the device. Right click and select "format"

Also, did the MP3 player come with an installation/driver disc of any kind?
If so I think we can get the driver from that.
