    Hi guys,

    Having a problem with my MP3 player recently. The mp3 player that I have has built in 512 meg of memory. It also has a 1 gig SD card that u slot in it. When connected through a USB cable windows explorer shows these as 2 removeable drives. Now, in the past, a few weeks ago I was able to copy and paste mp3 files into these drives. No problems at all. Recently though, when I try to copy files I get the message 'the drive is write protected and files cannot be copied.' I tried switching the write protetctor on my 1 gig SD card, but to no avail. So I dont think this is the problem.

    I cant even copy any files to the built in 512 meg memory. On some occasions, as soon as I go into a folder on the 1 gig SD card, the computer has rebooted.

    Any ideas of what may be wrong here ? I am using wondows XP, and nothing has really changed on my computer for the last few months.

    many thanks

    What make is it? If it is branded mp3 player checj their website for firmware updates.
    There are 2 separate storage devices and you are getting the same error when trying to access them . This makes me think there is something wrong with device's firmware.
    Just a guess...
