    Windows has stolen my MP3 Player!

    Help! Arg lol. So my cheap-as-chips MP3 player has decided to turn up as a "Windows Portable Device" - "MP3 Player" rather than just showing up as a removable drive.

    All I really want to do is copy the music over, I don't use WMP nor do I want to but I can't see any options to turn it off.

    Can anyone help me *** has taken over...

    have you updated media player in the meantime? play around in the settings to see if it has a mass storage mode, failing that, just use wmp

    Cheers. I've upgraded to windows media player 11 now, and I have the option to open it as a folder. Still not quite a removable drive as I don't think I can safely remove it, but I can get rid of wmp again now and get back to listening to music the way I want to!
    Thanks again

    Uninstall windows, install linux

    2 proper suggestions:
    1) Try it in a different USB port.
    2) delete it from device manager when connected
