Im from Austria (yes that doesnt matter)
igot the same problem, and even violating my radio (BUAHAHA) doesnt solve that problem. At weekend i will open it and see what i can do,
But till yet i know that this Error ALWAYS comes along with a cd Error in my case,

Because when the CD insertion engines arent pulling the cd, that error will happens on usb (i have no idea how they linked but they are) because when my player gets warm the usb-problem sometimes disappears, but always along with the insertion problem..

i think all that players u mentioned were running with the same Chip or internals, whatever, at weekend i know more but i guess its an cd insertion problem that is somehow linked with the other devices

Use a computer with a CD/DVD drive and a USB port. Insert an USB memory stick into this computer, and also insert the Nortons CD into this computer. Copy the contents of the Nortons CD onto the USB memory stick.
Remove the USB memory stick and insert it into the Dell mini's USB port and then install Nortons from this USB memory stick.

I have a sandisk memory stick duo. The pictures and videos can be viewed while in the sony webbie. When I plug it up to transfer the pictures/videos to the computer I get an error message. Is there...

Connect the memory card/stick to a USB memory card reader and then plug it into the USB port in the computer. The computer will see this as an external memory card.

How do I use the CD that came with my ACER aspire to download microsoft word when the laptop doesnt come with a CD player?

Find a friend with a computer that does have a CD-ROM, and a USB port. Purchase a USB memory-stick that has at least 1GB of memory.
Get your friend to copy all the files from the CD-ROM to the memory-stick, including any "hidden" files.

Then, put the USB memory-stick into your computer, and install the software.

Clarion DXZ385USB will not play from the usb input

It is not compatible. I had the same receiver and mp3 player. according to the Clarion website, an "ERROR 5" is the message for a compatibility problem. You probably got an "ERROR 2"(format problem) when you had the player plugged in and then cycled through the sources(that's how I received the error).

I have since bought an Ipod and the USB input works just fine. Clarion says the deck is MTP compatible, but it will not run a lot of MTP devices. Only Ipods and certain memory sticks. The Creative Zen Vision M is read as an MTP device when it it plugged into anything like a computer, Xbox 360, and the Clarion USB receivers. The Clarion units even attempt to read it as an MPT device, but will not play. It is not an issue with the receiver or the MP3 files. The Creative Vision M is not a compatible device, sorry.
