Sounds like you have a damaged restore disk. Look at it under a bright light, and see if there are any scratches in the disk. You might be able to clean the disk (always clean from the inside out, never in a circle).
If the player is showing up in your Windows' Device Manager under "portable devices" with a yellow "!":
1.) Right-click the yellow "!" and choose "update driver". 2.) When given the option to connect to Windows Update, choose "no, not this time" and click next. 3.) Choose "Install from a specific location (advanced)" and click next. 4.) Choose "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install" and click next. 5.) Click the "Have Disk" button. Browse to C:\Windows\inf and choose the file marked "wpdmtp.inf"
I can't believe the generic players have such crappy support when so many people have this problem! I think the Windows file problem might be caused by "compressing old files" when you do a disk cleanup.
You may be right about the mboard but also try changing the processor or taking out the processor and try powering on withou the processor. If its the mboard then it could have been because of a power surge and thus the mboards needs to be replaced. let me know how you go. thanks
