    WMP10 ( doesn't detect my Samsung YP-K5 MP3 player.
    Windows does detect it - Device Manager shows it under the "Windows Portable
    Devices" Type (though I have to insert it twice in the same USB port to get
    this to happen, the first time I get a "USB Device not recognized" error.)
    This device carrys the "PlaysForSure" logo.
    (Other Music Management sofware doesn't detect it either: MusicMatch JukeBox
    10, Samsung Media Studio 5).
    Running Windows XP Pro, SP2 and all high-priority updates installed.

    Any help to get this to work is appreciated!

    Are you using a front-side USB port? Those often can be quite buggy - the
    rear-side ports may work better...

    I've tried every USB port on the computer (Dell Inspiron 9300 Laptop)
