Hi there!

I just got a brand new mp3-player but somehow I managed to completly fu*k it all up :)
*A state of mine

Well, I´ve fixed it up and re-installed the drivers and WindowsXP keeps telling me that the device is ok and drivers are correct, but I can't see the player from anywhere, not even from the program included on a disc.

Why is this? What should I do? Really want this to work so please help me out! :)

Mp3Player: iMX -430 InnoAX :-: Link

I did what your not supposed to do :( I disconnected the player before turning it of from devices (right, bottom corner right next to the clock). The manual says that you may not do that but stupid as I'm, I did.

I´ve tryed to find the mp3-player main software but can't find it.

Also: The mp3-player wont start, It shows a loading picture and wont continue. The strange thing is that Windows device manager finds it but nothing else sees it.

The mp3 player uses a flash media storage. When you disconnect it from a device before powering it down, it usually results in the deletion of all the media/files in the flash memory. In some cases, it might ruin the flash card. This might be your problem because I don't think there's anything wrong with the firmware, or at least I don't see how doing what you did would corrupt the firmware. Try inserting a different flash card and see what happens.

According to the link you gave me, it lists variable flash memory sizes it can support
(128 /256 / 512MB / 1GB), meaning that you should be able to change the flash memory card. I suggest that you consult the manual on how and where to remove the flash memory card. The following image contains several flash memory cards, one which may look like yours.
