I realise that this is quite old, but I had just had the same problem after recently having to change my laptop. Worked fine with Win 98, seen but no files to read in VISTA. After 2 days of searching for a solution, and looking at possible replacements I came across this page;

I will copy the relevent bit below. I realise it is an XP solution, but it seems to have worked for Vista too, I am ripping and dragging and dropping now. If it is too late, sorry, maybe this will help someone else out there.

    I recently got a new laptop (Dell Vostro 1400) and tried hooking up my
    two mp3 players. The new laptop only recognizes my players as MTP
    devices, I can only see them in windows media player (grrr) or winamp.
    On my old laptop and a desktop pc, my players are recognized as hard
    drives, so I can access them through 'my computer.'

    the Dell and the old laptop are running Windows XP Home w/sp2 and
    regularly updated with Windows updates. The desktop is running Windows
    Media Center Edition (2005 I think).

    • Plug in your device. It should be recognized by the system and
      installed as an MTP device the first time you plug it in.

    • Open Device Manager. Find your Sansa Express under Portable
      Devices. Right click. Update driver.

    • Select: No, not this time, Next.

    • Select: Install from a list or specific location (Advanced), Next.

    • Select: Don’t Search. I will choose the driver to install, Next.

    • Be sure to check the box beside Show compatible hardware.

    • Highlight USB Mass Storage Device, Next.


    That was written for a Sansa Express player, but the procedure should work for
    other similar MTP+UMS players. There are also additional methods and
    workarounds in that thread of this procedure doesn't work.

    Good luck!

My pc with the motherboard P5VD2-MX SE has no audio after installing windows 7, the driver didn't install properly and asking a support:WNT_5.1H_MCE.

This is your board with Asus's link:
It doesn't show support for Windows 7 however, some that are compatable with Vista are also compatable with Win 7. Try uninstalling the driver then try to install using Asus link. If that doesn't work do the same here:
You can try this also though, I don't believe you have the AC97 codec.
Good luck,

I dowloaded pictures to my Coby MP3 620 however they cannot be viewed in photos and can only be found in see the files but cannot view it in there either

It sounds like your files are not compatible. Your probably going to have to find what types of files are compatible with the coby, then try to transfer the file type and reload. to convert the file type, your going to have to do that on your computer.
