i think we giving up on main topic here?
have u tryed to reformat ur flash drive? have u tryed to format in fat16 instead of fat32?
when wmp notices flash drive first time, it leaves a file in drive, maybe is something wrong with that file.

But mostly i think ur windows 7 copy maybe is messed up, u sure about that ur copy is ok and was not predited before install?

I gave MM a shot. Like it a lot actually, but got a problem with the syncing part and guess this is not the appropriate place to pose the question. Posted it on MM forum, but no reply yet
MediaMonkey • View topic - not able to sync multiple playlists to device at once!
I'd apreciate it if you take a look

Thanks a lot
