Have an MP3 player which is a USB plug in. It is supposed to recharge while plugged in. Has been working fine. Usually as soon as it is plugged in XP says there is a new device and loads it. Now there is nothing. MYComp doesn't see "I" which is were it should show up.

Have tried rebooting with the USP already plugged in as well as plugging it in after the computer is running. Have tried different cords and USB plugs. Other devices work on the plug.

In addition the player itself will not turn on. Acts like dead battery or... lost everything on it?

Any suggestions?

This is the second MP3 player to go screwy. The other one won't turn off but isn't recognized by XP either.

Tried searching but it is difficult to search for MP3 or USB :thumbsup:

Not sure what to look for in device manager. There are bunches of USB references. But none seems to be for the MP3 player.

It seems to be a dead battery. Or a lose connection. After leaving it plugged in for 48hrs and replugging several times it comes back on. At least nothing has been erased that was needed and it doesn't seem to be a driver problem.

Thanks for your help
