If the player is showing up in your Windows' Device Manager under "portable devices" with a yellow "!":

1.) Right-click the yellow "!" and choose "update driver".
2.) When given the option to connect to Windows Update, choose "no, not this time" and click next.
3.) Choose "Install from a specific location (advanced)" and click next.
4.) Choose "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install" and click next.
5.) Click the "Have Disk" button. Browse to C:\Windows\inf and choose the file marked "wpdmtp.inf"

I can't believe the generic players have such crappy support when so many people have this problem! I think the Windows file problem might be caused by "compressing old files" when you do a disk cleanup.

The wpdmtp.inf file might be damaged. It will say the the INF is invalid, go to http://www.infdump.com/ and download a new one and replace the damaged file located in C:\Windows\inf. Relaunch installation, the device is gonna be recognized as a disk. Go to device manager and update the driver. Youre done.

I recently bought an AOC E790Sw monitor. When I try to install the monitor driver using the method described in the manual, it gives a "a service installation in this inf is invalid" and there is a yellow exclamation mark in front of the monitor "AOC 1970w" in the device manager. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but the problem remains the same. I'm running windows xp pro. Thank you.

Your device is not compatible with your existing OS. XP is wonderful operating system but, unfortunately, there are newer devices that will not work in that environment. Bet you a cup of coffee that if you attempt to install it in a later computer with, say, windows 7 it will work!
