This is not an operating system issue. Portadisc has been tested as
compatible with 98/2000/ME/XP.
As to why some computers do not see Portadisc - this is almost certainly a
computer hardware issue - I am guessing something to do with the motherboard
and/or its USB chipset. Bill Gates would know - sorry I dont have his
number. I have not heard of any MAC compatibility issues before.
*Try connecting Portadisc to the PC via a simple USB hub. This is one
particular solution that I know has worked*.

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.
