I presume you are referring to the disk for an mp3 player as in the question category being for Windows XP and you are using Windows 7 on the computer you want the player on. Generally the easiest way to do this is go to the author', publisher's website and get an updated version of the software that will run on Win 7.
Alternatively you could try running the software installer and subsequently the software itself under Windows compatibility for XP. Right click on the files and select and click on "troubleshoot compatibility" and follow instructions.
A second option is to create a Virtual Machne within Win7 and run Windows XP on this machine which will behave exactly as Win XP. This a complex procedure and you need to have a valid copy of XP as well as your Win7.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Philips produces a variety of MP3 players that differ in capacity and design. All of the Philips MP3 players have one thing in common, however: the way that you manage files on the MP3 player. All Philips MP3 players appear as USB mass storage devices when connected to your computer. This means that you can delete files off of your Philips MP3 player using Windows Explorer, much like you would remove a file off of a USB drive.
To delete them, follow this instructions:
1)Connect your Philips MP3 player to your computer using the USB cable provided with your device. 2)Find your Philips MP3 player in Windows Explorer by clicking "Start" and then "My Computer." You should see your device under the section labeled "Devices with Removable Storage." 3)Double-click on your Philips MP3 player to view the files stored on the MP3 player. 4)Navigate to the folder that contains the files you want to remove. Your files are organized based on the type of file. For example, open the "Music" folder to delete music files. 5)Right-click on a file you want to delete and select "Delete." Click "Yes" when asked if you are sure you want to delete the file. 6)Eject the Philips MP3 player before disconnecting it. Click the "USB Mass Storage" icon in the system tray and select "Safely Remove Hardware." The system tray is in the lower-right corner of the screen.
You can download content to a Philips GoGear multimedia player using Windows Media Player or MusicMatch Jukebox in Windows. Earlier versions of Windows starting with 2000/ME and XP are compatible with GoGear. If the device is not recognized by the Windows XP operating system or is receiving error messages, you may have older versions of the necessary software installed. There also may be firmware issues with the GoGear device.
Connect the Philips GoGear to another USB port on the computer. Sometimes USB ports go out, especially those in the front of the computer case. Try inserting the GoGear into another port and see if XP can now recognize the device.
Download Service Pack 1 or later for the XP operating system (see Resources). Philips GoGear can only operate on XP systems with at least Service Pack 1 installed. You may also receive an error message pertaining to the service pack when trying to insert the installation disc for the GoGear support software.
Install the latest version of Windows Media Player. Philips GoGear requires at least Windows Media Player 11. Windows Media Player 11 is available for XP .
Install the latest version of MusicMatch Jukebox (see Resources). Earlier version of this software may be causing error messages regarding missing MP3 tag information and missing tracks. Follow the download prompts, then unzip the folder and click on the "HDD_xxx.exe" installation file. The latest version of the software will be installed.
Install the latest firmware on the Philips GoGear. The actual firmware required depends on your GoGear model. Open either Philips Device Manager or Songbird, depending upon which management software you are currently using. Close all programs on the computer except for the Device Manager/Songbird. Connect the GoGear to the power supply and the computer. Click the "Repair" tab in the Device Manager and click "Repair," or click "Tools" in Songbird and select "Check for updated firmware," and the firmware will be updated on the GoGear.
Try connecting the unit to your computer. When the device is detected, click on the icon 'My Computer' and then you will see the player as, for example, drive E:\. Right-click on it and then go to 'Format', and format it using the FAT file system, not NTFS.
If your operating system is XP, go to start, programs, accessories, windows explorer. Go to the folder you have the music in, right click on a file you want to put on the mp3 player and see what the file type is. If the file is MP3 or wav, attach your MP3 player with the cable it came with to a usb port on your computer. It will mount as a drive (example E: F:, etc...). All you have to do is drag the file you want on the MP3 player to the mounted drive. If you have VISTA, you go to the microsoft ball in the lower left of your screen, and click one time, select all programs,accessories, windows explorer. Go to the folder you have the music in, right click on a file you want to put on the mp3 player and see what the file type is. If the file is MP3 or wav, attach your MP3 player with the cable it came with to a usb port on your computer. It will mount as a drive (example E: F:, etc...). All you have to do is drag the file you want on the MP3 player to the mounted drive.
If you added songs to the device in MSC mode, then switch to MTP mode, you will not be able to see the songs added in MSC mode and vice versa, though the space used on the player will still reflect their presence. Switching modes should make the files show up. For example, switching from MSC to MTP mode or vice versa.
For older players - e200v1, c200v1, c100, m200 - the files become hidden files if the modes are switched. An easy workaround is to edit the folder options to show hidden files.
STEP 1 - Edit the folder options of the computer to show the hidden files
Windows XP: 1. Double-click My Computer. 2. Under the Tools menu, select Folder options, then click the View tab. 3. Under Hidden files and folders option, select Show hidden files and folders. 4. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. 5. Click Apply, then click OK.
Windows Vista: 1. Double-click Computer. 2. Click the Organize button on the upper left corner. 3. Click Folderand search options. 4. Click the View tab and select Show hidden files and folders. 5. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files check box. 6. Click Apply, then click OK.
SOLUTION 2 - Perform a Check Disk.
STEP 1 - Switch toMSC mode 1. On your Sansa player, switch the USB mode to MSC. 2. Connect the Sansa player to the PC.
STEP 2 - Perform Check Disk 1. Locate the Sansa player under My Computer. 2. Right-click the removable drive associated with the Sansa player, and select Properties. 3. Click the Tools tab, and then click Check now. 4. Click to select the Automatically fix the file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check boxes. 5. Click Start.

I did this yesterday for someone. This is a workaround since there's no manual that refers to Vista setup:
1. Plug in player 2. Click on My Computer (mp3 player should show up) 3. Click on the player (will show amount on disk to hold files) 4. Find your music files and reduce the screen size; drag files to the player
Since I don't use Windows Media Player much, I couldn't figure out the syncing thing since I had already copied the files and didn't want to do it over again. But...if you want them in a particular order, try this:
1. First, create a new folder within the gpx player (click to rename - rock, classical, whatever). 2. Then, open that folder and copy the files to it. When finished, go back to the folder (or highlight all the files within), right click and *create playlist*. Repeat for all consecutive folders.
The first time I did this, I didn't create folders so all the genres were jumbled. The second time, I did it by creating folders. At least it's separating the categories now but I still have to scroll through if I want to go from rock to classical. Maybe that option doesn't exist since it's a pretty cut 'n dried player?...or else the WMP must be utilized. (I'm NOT going to try to figure that one out!) Very different from the IPOD.
My creative zen nano plus 1GB bought 6 months back, when connected to the comp it hangs...then after long time it gives an error message that write file delayed in F:. I didn't even try to write any file...the right click also hangs the computer after long time
