Sandisk about this problem songs not being recognized on the computer but still on the player:
Use this links as main help thread.

The standard connection type of C200 series is MTP = Media Transfer Protocol. In this mode you can see the connected device as a portable player.

Songs that are put on the player in UMS = Universal Mass Storage mode (also called MSC = Mass Storage Class), seeing the device as a removable disk can only be seen in the players' UMS mode and vice versa.

Check the setting of the USB mode on the display of the C250:

Main Menu
> Settings / USB / Autodetect or MSC mode

Autodetect = MTP mode: computer sees the player Sansa C250.
MSC mode: computer sees a removable disk.

Now 2 things could have happened:

1. Music is put on the player in MSC mode and now the player is
connected in MTP mode or vice versa.

2. There are bad sectors or corrupted files are transferred on the players' removable disk.
  • In case of bad sectors a recovery is possible: in MSC mode perform check disk as told in the link above.

  • In case of corrupted files a format of the device is needed. First a backup of all data has to be made. Next perform format. This can be done in 2 ways:
Using disk management:
Using Windows Media Player:

Option 2. having problems with the disk or data on the players' disk can also be solved by updating the firmware.
For firmware update see link:
Remember: before updating backup the data from player to the computer.

When more help is needed just post a comment.

Sansa support for c200 series:

Look for item 15 in the c200 faqs "player not recognized":
1. Have the Windows Mediaplayer 11 installed and updated
if this did not help and
2. When running Vista apply the microsoft hotfix
when not running Vista or this didn't help:
3. install the microsoft MTP porting kit
MTP stands for Media Transfer Protocol based on software linked
4. If that didn't help try to connect in MSC mode.
MSC stands for Massage Storage Class based on hardware linked
devices, seeing the player as a removable disk: In the player
Go to Settings > System Settings > USB Mode & choose MSC.

Just ask for help if this will not solve your problem.

It takes a while. Try leaving it charged over night, then tell me if you have any problems.

My computer will not recognize my Sansa sandisk MP3 player. I tried to reset it, and when I get the "Please connect USB" message, it still won't recognize it.

hi its because of virus in ur system so try 2 formate ur card for better result else install anti virus in ur system

SanDisk Sansa ... | Answered on Aug 31, 2009

Your model doesn't natively support SD cards over 4GB, however I hear you can install something called "Rockbox," it's a free third party firmware that allows you to dual boot between "Rockbox" and the Sansa firmware. "Rockbox" adds the support you need for SD cards with a capacity of 4GB or more. I've never used this firmware, but it does sound promising.
Download it here
Sorry I couldn't be more help.

USB it to a PC and open up the explorer : rt clk on start, lft clk on explore scroll down to the sandisk player (should be in the list) clk it and on the rt side you should see the folders and songs on it, simply rt clk on the song you want to delete , lft clk delete and its gone.
the sandisk should act just like a hard driver or flash drive when connected with the cable to the PC. If missing the cable you can buy one less than $10 online.
hope this helps
