    Discovered RCA doesn't give a rip about customer support on this
    device, both on the phone and on their website. Great. Will
    not buy anything from these &#@$ again!

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.

Hi !
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!

I recently bought an AOC E790Sw monitor. When I try to install the monitor driver using the method described in the manual, it gives a "a service installation in this inf is invalid" and there is a yellow exclamation mark in front of the monitor "AOC 1970w" in the device manager. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but the problem remains the same. I'm running windows xp pro. Thank you.

XP does not require a CD for installation - it should be just plug-n-play. The full user manual and other software for the Opal can be found at www.rcaopal.com
