In answer to your question, no not in the sense that you mean (similar thing happened to mine). If it does not work at all (that is to say cannot be burned on) when not connected to the PC then I'd say that it needs returning and repacing. If it does switch on when not connected to the PC then try another cable justin case this is the fault, though I am more inclined to the "back to seller" route as the most probable outcome.
You should not need drivers for this device as it ought to be picked up automatically by your computer (assuming that it's Windows, what version are you running?). If you have an expansion card in the player, then try removing this and then re-connecting the Kubik to your PC to make sure that the expansion card is not faulty.
Another quick test is to check the cable, both in a different USB slot if you have one available and / or by connecting another USB device that uses the same connection (in my case, a digital SLR camera has the same USB adapater so I can use the cable for either). If, doing this, the second device also is not recognised then try swapping the cable for a new one (but again, if possible test the cable and connection to other USB device in another USB slot as well).
One other quick question - does the Kubik device work still when unplugged from he PC?
The easiest way is to plug it into a PC - any Mac, Linux or Windows machine will see it as a USB flash drive. Copy the mp3 files you want to listen to into the Music folder. The trick is when you disconnect - unmount the flash drive (or eject it if using Windows) and then wait for the Evo to switch from USB connect symbol to the charging symbol. If it does not change after 5 minutes, unplug it, flip the side switch to off, then back to on and it should be OK.
Attach the device to your computer using the USB lead
Wait for your computer to find the device
Then use Windows Explorer to drag and drop the files onto the device
Make sure the files are in a compatible format to the device
Once transfered power up the device and rebuild the Index of Music using the option under the music menu
