Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player
When trying to install my new Opal M4001, I get this message: a service installation section in this INF is invalid. I'm running XP with Windows Media Player 11. Any ideas?
If the player is showing up in your Windows' Device Manager under "portable devices" with a yellow "!":
1.) Right-click the yellow "!" and choose "update driver".
2.) When given the option to connect to Windows Update, choose "no, not this time" and click next.
3.) Choose "Install from a specific location (advanced)" and click next.
4.) Choose "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install" and click next.
5.) Click the "Have Disk" button. Browse to C:\Windows\inf and choose the file marked "wpdmtp.inf"
I can't believe the generic players have such crappy support when so many people have this problem! I think the Windows file problem might be caused by "compressing old files" when you do a disk cleanup.

I've got a Samsung Galaxy S2 SGH i777. I've been trying to connect it to my laptop ( now xp sp3 ) for a few weeks now.
I've tried almost everything :
-updated sp2 to sp3
-unistall and reinstall drivers manually
-tried suggestions from android and xp forums : tried every connection mode, every usb port, code error 28 suggestions, .Net framework update , updated windows media player "mode", and some others ...
But no success.
Until yesterday morning when I just followed divadrummers 5 steps - and it worked for me, finally :).
Thanks a lot
P.S. - I've found that "inf" file in the Windows hidden system files.
Don't give up, keep trying. :)

Installing this framework worked for me. After installing this, not only did it work again, but it now shows up as a portable device instead of just a removable disk. Bonus!
