I bought a generic mp3 player that I had trouble with on all three of my pc's: Win98SE, 2K, and XP. I got it to work using the steps below. You might want to try them. Good luck.
Windows 2000 fix for "Mp3 player not recognized". It asks for a file named actdisk.sys, which is not on CD Rom that came with my Mp3 player, and no information is available about it in the manual.

hi, i just purchased a sandisk e250 mp3 player a few days ago, and im having problems with my computer recognizing the e250. i know on the box it says that you need windows xp, but im running windows 2000 and im wondering if there happens to be a driver out right now. when i plug the e250 in, it asks for a driver, but no "suitable drivers" show up. im wondering if anyone has gotten a e250 to work on a windows 2000 os. thanks in advance
