Yes if you have the Phillips WACS700 and want to install the software that came with the system to upload/download music and you have a windows 7 or Vista you need to open the explorer and go to the CD/DVD folder then look for the .exe change the properties of the .exe files to run in compatibility mode "compatible with Windows XP SP2", then run them from the explorer. I have a Win 7 computer and both software that came with the CD did not wanted to run because they required XP, as soon as I change the properties of the files they ran and installed without a glitch, everything worked as it should and I been able to enjoy my music on the WACS700.
If you open the CD contents in a folder and run the Setup in XP compatibility mode, and the software should work.
<div>Good luck from there! I still can't get my PC to recognize the music center.</div>
After the MP3 songs are transferred from the PC to the Music Center via DMM, do not disconnect the power cord. The Center is updating its internal database to mark the changes of music library. Wait for around 20 minutes to let the Center update the database completely. When the internal updating is complete, you will be allowed to turn the Center into ECO Standby mode.
