Problem with Vista and MP3

I have the new windows vista,and I cannot seem to be able to play my MP3 on my computer. I plug it into the usb port while it is turned on, and the options menu comes up, and it will not allow my to play my MP3.
I go to the hard drive and click on the removable hard drive files, and none of my songs appear. all I see is my recording file and WMPinfo. none of my songs. but they still appear on my player after uplugging it from the computer. How do I fix this?

Mp3 will not connect with my computer

I'm pretty sure I fixed a similar problem. Go to your device manager on your PC and uninstall the walkman driver. After this is complete just plug the walkman back into you Pc and the plug and play will download the driver again. This worked for me. My operating system is Windows vista.

Not detected by computer - cannot recharge battery

yay I found a solution! so I kept getting the error about an MTP device, so I did a big search. I am running vista on a 32 bit processor. what you need to download is the MTP installation programme from windows. so click on
and then just select what processor speed you need. should do the trick! I also downloaded initially, but it didn't appear to work. hope that you all get to the bottom of this frustrating problem :)

Won't Upload Songs

player has problems with windows media player 11. works with wmp 10. player also has problems with vista. firmware was designed for xp. no firmware updates available. you can try dragging and dropping through windows explorer, treating it as a usb mass storage device. it will play folders and songs this way. to get vista to recognize it, format the player through the player's menu ( set-system-format ) not through the computer. take out the battery for 15 minutes. reboot your computer. put battery back in. plug into usb port. hopefully vista recognizes it as usb device
