Dear evildog62,

\015\012The reasons why your external storage decive (like the mpr player) works for about 20 seconds only are many. It sounds like you may have conflicting devices that will kick off your mp3 off the system when they load. I recommend doing a boot in safe mode and seeing if it stays. If it does, then boot normally and try uninstalling the USB devices completely from the Device Manager, including the USB hubs. When you detect new hardware everything should line up and stay in place.
