On another my computers works normally, but on this laptop something wrong. When i plug my mp3 player through USB, it charges. But when i click "My computer" i can`t see this device, so i cant copy songs to it. Why that? I have installed latest USB drivers. I repeat mp3 player is working good, it works on another computers.

What does the laptop run?  Are you connected directly or via a hub?  Do other USB devices work?  How about other USB Storage devices?

What operating system are you running?  If Windows 98 that may explain it.

You've installed latest USB drivers but are those just for the laptop and not the USB device.

Still not sure of you windows version as others stated but try this.  Right click my computer/ click manage.  Click disk management and then look at the disks it is reporting in your system.  See if you can find your mp3 player here.  If so check to see if it has a drive letter assigned.  If it does not or the one that it has is used by another drive please right click on an empty space in the drives graph.  Click change drive letter/ follow steps to change drive to something that is not in use/
Let me know if this fixes problem.
