-changed the cable
-directed the "New Device" wizard to look for drivers in C:\Windows\INF , C:\Windows\winsxs
-copied different copies of "usbstor.inf" & "usbstor.PNF" into C:\Windows\INF and different locations but none of those have worked
-I have even tried deleting INFCACHE.1 and nothing.
-went to: http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/r....asp?prodID=109 which is Rio's support page for this device but they claim it doesnt need a driver as the OS should read it as a mass storage device.
The mp3 player still works fine and plays music as it should it just doesnt want to be recognized in either vista or xp. any help or suggestions is really appreciate it as Im very little away from giving up on it. Thanks all!
