My friend is running Vista with Windows Media Player 11. He used to be able to sync his playlists to a USB stick but suddenly he has found that the device is not recognised in WMP even though it is found in the computer drives menu and other files can be seen there. I have read that this problem occurs with newer USB sticks so I tried one from 2010 but the problem persists. Is there a fix?
