Default [Q] Win Xp not showing phone?

My phone isn't showing up on win xp. I updated windows media player, and installed HTC sync. Where else should I get drivers?

Which version of Android do you have? Newer Android OS don't mount as a drive any more, they are accessible as MTP/PTP devices.

It won't show up as a drive letter in 4.4. You need to access it via MTP (which is supported by XP SP2). Plug your phone into the computer via USB, make sure that you choose MTP from the prompt on the phone (it will ask PTP or MTP), and it should be available as a device, but not a drive letter.

If all else fails, a search for WIndows XP MTP on google will have more tips.
