Yep.
Got this new mp3 player.. I assumed it wouldn't need a driver because I'm on XP. Plugged it in via USB and XP asks for a disk to install a driver.
So alright.. I have one of those.
Disk goes in.. opened the install.bat file.
And.. I get to watch it tell me:
"the directory name is invalid"
"the directory name is invalid"
"the directory name is invalid"
"the directory name is invalid"
"the directory name is invalid"
"the directory name is invalid"
"could not find C:\windows\inf\telechips\teleums.*"
"the directory name is invalid"
"the directory name is invalid"
"access is denied"
"installation is complete"
"reboot you computer"

..But obviously installation isn't complete.. and I can't transfer anything to the player. I figure if it worked.. I'd have a G:drive correct?
But anyway.. I've done all that can be done with the hardware tools and whatnot. Searched for the driver online.. found it.. used it. Same thing happened.
So it must be a problem the computer itself.
Now I know that I shouldn't even have to install this driver unless I'm on an early OS, so I figure I was wasting my time with it all along.
What I'm wondering now; is what's going on with my XP.
Am I missing something here?

Fuxxing windows..
