Microsoft's MSDN documented an error with this message:
"Invalid device ID. Use the ID given to the device when the device was opened."
It's close, but not yours. If you made a typographical error, please correct it or confirm you supplied the exact message.
I have installed and am happily running Apple's iTunes and iPod on my new WindowsXP computer, but since the installation I am showen, at the start of Windows desktop, error messages: "Invalid MCI device ID; Use the ID returned when operating the MCI device".
After closing each message, all is well and operates fine.
Any suggestions to avoid this annoying message? I'm assuming the MCI device refers to the Apple hardware (found in the registry).
