Cant Connect To VISTA Home Premium Sony NWZ-A818 M

  si67 01:09 06 Jan 08

I know that this might be a tired topic, but I just recently purchased an 8gb mp3 player, the Sony NWZ-A818 player.

However, I have been unable to connect to my computer, nor does it charge via USB. The player turns on, but then turns back off after non-use.

My computer:
Windows Vista Home Premium
Asus P5VD2 motherboard, Intel Celeron 1.6GB
7 x USB 2.0 ports
1GB memory
Windows Media Player 11

What I've tried with no positive results:
- resetting the player
- formatting the player to erase the files
- different USB ports on the computer, front and back
- rolled back WMP to 10
- when WMP10 didn't work, I upgraded back to 11, which still didn't work
- I installed the latest chipset drivers (although I haven't upgraded the BIOS just yet)
- tried to upgrade the USB drivers, but Windows Update couldn't do so

In every case, the "new hardware detected" window pops up, and windows wants to install drivers/software for the unit, but obviously, there's nothing that I can install.

If there's anything I can do, please let me know. I would greatly appreciate any and all help. If there's anything else you need to know, please ask. Thanks in advance for any help.
