a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

For this player, mtp device = good, wmp 10 =good, and xp =good - so your system definitely meets the requirements.
Dell did not list any other repair methods other than reset. You could try this, but it is a long shot: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
I'm thinking that this one just has a circuit/power supply malfunction and will need to be replaced. The starting price for an Mp3 repair service is usually $280, and most will refuse b/c the mp3 manufacturers will not supply parts (Dell officially washed their hands of this product in 2006).

You can still download the drivers and firmware from the dell site for the dj, so you can set up your new computer to work with the dj. (I'm hearing VIsta is not compatible. Not surprising... )One part of the software is the Dell DJ Explorer. It simply opens a window and recognizes your dj. (Make sure it is on and connected)
If DJ Explorer says 'not connected' then right click and click refresh. When it recognizes the DJ, it will say the name you named your dj. Open that like a regular folder and it should read your dj and list all the songs on it. Then simply copy and paste songs to another folder you open on your computer screen; probably should use your My Music folder but that's your choice.
Now that music is saved back onto your computer. Hope that works for you.
A word about the Duebox or Dudebox program and company. I hope they ARE out of business as they scammed me. I checked into it awhile back for a better way to move music around on my 4 DJs and computer, and then bought it. It worked just as they said... at first. I used it to program my first DJ, then basically copied my songs and playlists to the other three (I have one in the house and one in each of our cars and our RV) Great! I'm happy! Then a few weeks or months later, tried to use it again to update, and was told that I could ONLY use it on ONE DJ, and the one I had just plugged in was not the one it recognized. I would have to buy a copy of Duebox for EACH DJ. Bottom line is I no longer support or care much for Duebox, and if they went out of business, then there really is such a thing as karma. I hate scammers.

go to the dell website, download the driver for windows XP, before installing the driver right click on the install icon, go to properties, securities and select "Run as Administrator". Now install the driver. This should allow you to run your driver and software. I have the 30 gig and it worked for me. good luck and I hope this helps.

**Drag and Drop**
Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder; available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player.
--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.
