After plugging the mp3 player (512 MB; SA 1300) into the USB port the player is not recognized.
XP has been re-installed on the computer. Before re-installation there was no problem. Should, next to Windows Media Player, additional software be loaded in the computer?

Re: mp3 Go Gear SA 1300 is not recognized by XP
Go to Start --> Control Panel --> Printers & Other Hardware --> System --> Hardware --> Device Manager --> Universal Serial Bus Controllers - look to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks next to any of the USB ports. If so, right-click them and select Update Driver. Good luck!

What you will need to do when mp3 player does not charge. First use another
charger to test if it's the charger is working properly.
After testing for charger, and still it does not charge, that means the charging
port on the mp3 player where the charger is been plugged in is not working
properly. You will need to replace the charging port. Alternately you can charge it from your computer by using USB cable. It automatically charges when connected to a USB port
When you connect your mp3 player to your PC, it will appear in "My Computer" as a removable drive. If it does not, the USB port may be the problem. Plug a different device into this port to make sure it is working. If it is not, make sure you have all the drivers for your computer inastalled. Also try a different USB cable.
The XP did not recognize the device because I used a after- marked USB expander board that did not provide enough power to the device. Plugging to the Motherboard - attached USB port solved the problem.
If the computer is running the Windows Vista operating system, your mp3 player is not compatible with it. If it is running XP, load any software that might have come with the player. Then check all USB ports on the computer. If none of the ports recognize the player, hold in the volume + button while connecting the mp3 player to the computer. Good luck!
Plug your player into your computer via USB. If Windows recognizes it, a new drive should show up under "My Computer". It may be called "Removeable media". It may be some letter like "G" or "H". If you have an SD card bigger than 512 MB, then find the removeable drive that is bigger than 512 MB that shows up when you plug in your MP3 player and that drive is your SD card.
I just got a Sandisk m250. Windows wouldn't recognize it either until I updated my Windows Media Player to version 11. Now XP sees it just fine and the MP3 player syncs with WMP and accepts and plays music!
