yeah i plug it in and it does nothing. it doesnt read it it doesnt do anything. on the mp3 player it says usb connected and shows like it is but under computer nothing shows up.. all my drivers are up to date my usb is up to date. i know i had this same mp3 player with vista a while back and it worked perfectly fine.

You always run the risk of poor support when you buy a knock-off, no-name brand of anything. Do other USB devices work on that same port?
