1. With Win7, most of the drivers come with / through OS itself.

visit this page for more details on how to update the drivers.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Update-a-driver-for-hardware-that-isnt-working-properly

2. Also, what I see from the site is that musicmatch jukebox is useful to put songs in there.

3. By default, the windows media player recognises the device you plug in automatically (Try changing the device access mode of your player to MTP and then plug it in)

4. Your player can automatically recognise the songs (so, you can plug it in USB storage mode also and try syncing with the windows media player 12 - click the sync tab on the window)

5. You may need the latest firmware for your device (CAUTION: update it only after reading the manual carefully, otherwise it may get unusable)

Here are some links for the softwares (from the philips site)
1. CD contents: http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/s/sa178_17/sa178_17_cdi_aen.zip
2. Musicmatch juke box (may be obsolete): http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/s/sa178_17/sa178_17_mjs_aen.exe
3. Frimware upgrade:
3.1 Readme:http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/s/sa178_17/sa178_17_fur_aen.htm
3.2 firmware: http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/s/sa178_17/sa178_17_fus_aen.zip

:)

Good Luck

My LG X200 works with Windows 7. Can I install XP on this model. And if I install XP, the drivers available for windows 7 will work on XP?


The drivers for Wndows 7 most likely will not work on Windows XP.
If this laptop came installed with Windows 7 it may not have Windows XP drivers.
Before you install Windows XP check the LG WEB site for Windows XP drivers for your model laptop. If there isn't any XP drivers then I suggest you stick with Windows 7.

What is the procedure to install a 32-bit softwares in to my laptop(windows 7,home premium,64-bit) ?


Most programs designed for the 32-bit version of Windows will work on the 64-bit version of Windows. Notable exceptions are many antivirus programs.
Device drivers designed for 32-bit versions of Windows won't work on computers running a 64-bit version of Windows. If you're trying to install a printer or other device that only has 32-bit drivers available, it won't work correctly on a 64-bit version of Windows.

Windows 7 64bit does run programs that will run on windows 7 32bit, see here

How Windows 7 / Vista 64 Support 32 bit Applications

BUT not ALL 32bit programs will run on Windows 7!!! There are many programs that will run on Windows XP and before that will not run on Windows 7. IF you had Windows 7 Pro version (or upgrade) there is a program you can download from Microsoft that will simulate an XP environment to allow programs to run called "XP MODE".
Try to install the 32bit software first. If installation not succeed, it would be better if you first look into a newer version of the program you want to run.You have to consider that a newer version of your program might not be that much more expensive than upgrading to pro, and with the newer version, usually comes newer features.

Hope this help and if helpful RATE please.

No drivers


If the operating system on the laptop is pre windows xp - in other words windows 2000, windows 98, windows 95 you will have to manually go to each manuf of the device you need drivers for and most companies will have a location on there website that allows you to download what you need.If it is windows xp or newer such as windows vista or windows 7.the operating system is much more user friendly and driver installation problems become virtually eliminated.
