when you say it goes to the beginning of the track when you press play, where exactly do you want it to go ? i have the logitech cordless elite duo and it works perfectly with windows xp.. no problems with either mouse or keyboard. which keyboard are you using exactly? the media buttons are a bit sketchy with media player 9 but when i went to the logitech site it was said that wmp9 was not yet supported. it works fine with the creative media player though.
