Can one force Windows to hide MTP capability and connect via MSC?
I'm a Mac user. I have a bunch of partially or totally non-functional Memorex MMP9490 8GB players that I've been using as flash drives. I gave a couple of them to a friend who uses Windows so she could use them for the same purpose.
Unfortunately, when my friend connects them to her computer, they do not show up as drives and apparently connect via MTP. The manual for these players doesn't mention MSC, UMS or MTP, so I assume they auto-detect and connect via MTP whenever they can. Even if there were a way to force the player into MSC mode, it would probably not work with these broken players.
Is there a way to get Windows to 'fool' the players into 'thinking' that MTP mode is not available and that they should connect in MSC mode?
