Tip & How-To about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

My computer does not recognize the MP3 player

If you are using an USB extension or an USB external hub, get rid of it.

Try plugging the MP3 to a different USB port.

Try unplugging AC charger, and removing laptop batter for ten minutes, sometimes this can fix problems caused by accumulation of electrostatic charges on USB controller.

If that does not solve the problem, test a different USB device on the same laptop, and test the MP3 on a different computer. Either one may be faulty.

If the problem is the laptop you may fix it by removing and reinstalling USB root hub on hardware devices in Control Panel.

Not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge batteries. If you're going through a hub, try connecting it directly. Try a different USB port if you have one. Try plugging it into a wall outlet if if you have an AC-USB adapter.

my sansa e250 could not be detected on my computer


In Normal conditions, after plugging in the MP3, amd waiting one or two minutes, the device should be installed automatically by the system. This works in the same way on Vista and on XP. On Windows 98 and Me the device may not work. After the MP3 is installed, you can reach the Sansa under My Computer (Computer). It will be displayed as an external disk named Sansa. If you are using an USB extension or an USB external hub, get rid of it. Try plugging the MP3 to a different USB port. Try unplugging AC charger, and removing laptop batter for ten minutes, sometimes this can fix problems caused by accumulation of electrostatic charges on USB controller. If that does not solve the problem, test a different USB device on the same laptop, and test the MP3 on a different computer. Either one may be faulty. If the problem is the laptop you may fix it by removing and reinstalling USB root hub on hardware devices in Control Panel.

unplug your mp3 player immediately!! it will fry your mp3 player if you leave it plugged in!! try adjusting the player's settings and seeing if there is somewhere to switch it from '1000mah' to '500mah' or lower. try that. if it still gives the error try a different usb port.
