I am using the Portadisc with Windows XP, and I never had the slightest
problem with USB recognition... I regularly connect my Portadisc units to
various computers runing XP (laptop, desktops, etc.) and Windows XP never
failed to give me the little "beep" in the next 2 or 3 seconds after the
device had been connected...

I suppose you have already tried different cables ? 

What software are you using to do the transfer ? In CoolEdit 2000, for
example, even though the Portadisc is identified by Windows as a sound
device, it will not automatically be selected as the input/output device.
The sound card is the "default" selected device. However, this is just an
selection to make from a menu.

I just bought an HHb Portadisc and was dismayed that Windows XP
doesn't recognize it as a USB device.  The literature with the
minidisc player says it should download to Windows 95/98/2000/ME or
something, but doesn't mention XP.  Has anyone faced this problem
before and cobbled together a solution?

(We do have an older PC we could probably download to, burn to a CD
and download from the CD to the new computer, but that seems
cumbersome.)  (I also sent a message to, but so far haven't
gotten a response.)

Any help would be appreciated.
