Not Recognized: Try connecting it to the back of your computer or another computer the back straight
to the motherboard this should be USB 2.0 and see if it will recognize

I found another complaint similar to mine and someone had posted a solution, which also worked on my daughter's Sansa e 260.
I went to settings, then usb mode and selected MSC instead of MTP and computer instantly recognized the hardware and I could sync her music for her! Can't remember name of person who'd posted solution, but thanks heaps!
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
