I have a RCA Lyra MC250 1A mp3 player that i have used in this computer before with no problems. Since then i have reformatted and reinstalled xp and today i plugged the device in and it wont install. i get a message sayint that a service installation section in this INF is invalid. I have no idea what that means. when i went in to the device manager ther is a yellow ! under the portable devices. when i click on the rca player it shows there is no driver installed. when i click on reinstall the driver i get the message i stated above. I though itf i could find the driver online for this mp3 player i would try to install it but i cant find the driver anywhere. would doing a disc error check fix this problem or does anyone know how to fix the INF?

Ok, somehow i have gotten the computer to recognize the mp3 player. I dont exactly know how. I tinkered around with the download driver option in the device manager and this time it seems to have downloaded the files needed. my only problem now is that when i plug the mp3 player into the usb port the icon shows up but disappears after a few seconds. I can open it up by going into my computer but to shut it off, all i can do is unplug it from the computer because the icon is not in the task bar. Doing it that way though i risk damging the mp3 player and losing the songs on the device. Does anyone know how to get the device icon to stay in the task bar?
