I have 2 different MP3 Players, a Creative Zen & A Sony Walkman & had no problems with connecting up to my computer via a USB Cable at first.

I have since had problems with the PC not recognising them at all, I just get the sound when the devices are connected which repeats 3 times in a row quickly (the devices turn on but don't connect).

Both players show up in my Portable Devices in Device Manager (as a Standard MTP) but with an exclamation mark.

I can reset the MP3 devices & Format them to re-work a while, but the problem soon returns.

Is there a piece of software out there to aid this problem, or is it a matter of keep on formating??

I am using XP (SP2)

Can Anyone Help It's Driving Me Mad :thumbsup:

Is the exclamation point by the USB controllers or root hub? Uninstall the USB in Device Manager and reboot the computer and let Windows redetect and install them
