My pc, a microsoft XP, won't recognise my Kindle as a device, probably pc too old, or is there something I can do?

You could try connecting to different usb port . I find sometimes different ones work for no apparent reason !

You need to install MTP drivers on Windows XP (or a Mac) for it to be able to see a Kindle. The easiest way is by installing Windows Media Player (v10 or later I think). See this help page:
