Old iPaq and Media Player 11?
This is so frustrating I thought I'd just make a blog post and see if someone has a solution. I have an old HP iPaq of the 1900 series, partnered with my Vista Laptop. I like that old PocketPC because it's fairly slim, easy to program and runs a few nice emulators like the ScummVM (mmmh, Sam & Max...). Anyways, every single freaking time I launch Media Player on the laptop, if the iPaq is docked, I'm getting a dialog box that says "your device is using an outdated driver that is no longer supported by Windows Media Player. For additional assistance, click Web Help." No "don't show this again" checkbox, you have to endure the dialog every single f*#$% time.
So I click Web Help, and end up on this (not) very helpful page:
which explains that their only solution to
my their problem is to "roll back to Media Player 10". Uh? On Vista? Nice.
I DON'T EVEN WANT TO SYNCHRONIZE MY MEDIA WITH THIS DEVICE! It's way too small anyways, and I never said that's one of the things I wanted to sync. Why do we have a new Sync Center and there's no option in there to turn that off? Why doesn't it appear in the sync part of Media Player?
Anyway, did anyone experience that and found a way to turn it off? Please?
UPDATE: I just found this thread, which leaves little hope of fixing this... http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/community/newsgroups/WindowsMedia/default.mspx?dg=microsoft.public.windowsmedia.player&mid=2b1aa191-83d8-4f20-8756-dde7695bfdef&sloc=en-us
