Hi,

Recently I found an old mp4 player (Optix Tiamat) of mine and I'm trying to connect it to my PC to see what files are on there (mp3, mp4, ...). The problem is that my PC doesn't recognise the device. In fact, when I connect the device, the PC doesn't do anything... Just as if it wasn't connected. Here's a link to an image that will show what it looks like if it helps:

It would help a lot if anyone knows a way to connect to it. Maybe it's just some drivers that I need. It's kind of a path to my childhood :) So it would really make my day.

Regards
Daniel

There is a setting in the menu on the device to 'connect to pc' the screen will turn blue and just have 'pc connection mode' on it or something similar. Ive set one of those up but it has been ages, windows xp i think. Then the pc should see something is plugged in and you can fight with drivers then.

I found no setting saying 'pc connection mode'. But somehow, now it does get recognized and I can look into the files on my PC. Maybe it was the cable's fault. Anyway, thanks for helping.
