Hi Annebelle, I just read the user manual for your KEY005 and it says it's a USB 1.1 device and that no drivers are needed for WinXP. It ALSO says that the device is powered directly from the USB port when plugged in. The USB hub might be the problem. Try plugging it directly into a USB port on your PC. If it still does not work try flipping the switch to OFF/CHARGE and then back to PLAYBACK/DOWNLOAD. I think plugging it straight into the PC will solve the problem. If not you can try the latest versions of any drivers/software from here: BTW you didn't happen to upgrade to WinXP from a previous version did you? That can sometimes cause problems like this (ESP. with USB devices) unfortunately upgrading to WinXP is NOT the same as a full fresh install of WinXP (gotta love M$) I hope this helps. Let me know how you make out, El Duderino

When you install the software/driver a message box will pop up saying this driver is not digitally signed, you sould ignore this and click continue, otherwise the driver will not install.

    If you computer fails to recognise the player, the drivers are not installed properly.

    Check in my computer to see if your mp3 player appears in other devices as a storage device, if not the driver is not installed.

    Also make sure it is being connected to a USB 2 connection as sometimes mp3 players specify using USB2.

    Also if you have a non powered USB hub (eg. not mains powered, usb powered only), this will also cause connection problems.

    usb2 is a faster file transfer rate, but I PODS for example will only run on a usb2 port, although, if it were not recognised it would not give the option to remove safely, make sure the driver you have installed is for Win XP.

Computor wont recognize dvd player

You might need to have a computer administrator account to perform some tasks.
Most new devices your computer will recognise automatically. When your comp is running, plug in your new dvd player. Does it beep and say 'New Hardware added? If not then use
The Add Hardware Wizard which enables you to add new hardware or troubleshoot any hardware-related problems.
Open the Add Hardware Wizard

  • To open the Add Hardware Wizard, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Printers and Other Hardware. Under See Also, click Add Hardware.
  • If it can't recognise the player, it gives you the option to select the correct make and model. Is yours on the list? If not, you may need to go to the Microsoft site and update the list of players.

How do i turn on my bluetooth on my emachines pc

Click the "Start" button, then choose "Control Panel," "Network and Internet" then finally "Setup a Bluetooth enabled device."

Power on the Bluetooth Hardware you want to connect to the computer. You must have some sort of hardware to connect to the computer, in order to enable the Bluetooth connection.
