    hi, I was checking the device manager as I have been having problems with an mp3 player connecting and I saw that there were exclaimations for both nvidia wdm a/v crossbar and nvidia wdm video capture (universal). It doesn't give me the option to update the drivers so I dont really know what to do. Could this be affecting the connectivity of my player?Any help would be appreciated
    thanks

    It is possible you have a Driver or IRQ conflict. an "!" does not always mean that you need drivers for it. Doubleclick on them and read what it says in Device Status. If it mentions drivers, try to find the most up-to-ddate ones from teh Nvidia website and install those.

    Also, try disconnecting the MP3 player, and reboot, see if the "!"s go away.

    Hi, Thanks for replying, I looked what it said in the properties
    This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24)
    I'm not really sure what to do as I'm abit worried to go installing new drivers in case it messes stuff up, also apart from my player not working there are no other problems with my computer and so if the two problems aren't related I dont know whether its worth putting new drivers in.
    Thanks again

    Fixing your Nvidia devices may be as simple as removing them from device manage "uninstall" and then reboot your machine. or just update the drivers as i previously suggested. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, and your computer has other major problems, I suggest takig it to the nearest computer repair shop. :)
