Default USB Trouble

Hey guys,

My PC recently went up the wall on me and stopped recognising the OS. So i re-installed it. Now my Sony Walkman MP3 player won't register when i put it in the USB port. All my other peripherals work in there but not this. If i leave it in for a long time, until the batteries full, it says Battery Full. But when i take it out and put it back in again theres nothing. It should be saying USB Connect but it's not. Any ideas? It's definately not the MP3 player as it works on my laptop. It's just all my music is on my PC and i don't have space on my laptop for the music and software. Anyone got any ideas?

Bret,
Thanks.

Before hand, was there any software installed for the MP3 player, there should of been some sort of disc, with drivers and software on, that came with the MP3 player. What is the make and the model of the MP3 player?

I've done the the hardware stuff and the only thing that happens is the drivers could not be updated as windows cannot find the right files? Any ideas on how i can fix this?
