The driver is located on the CD, or you can download it from Sandisk's website, and redirect your computer to the folder you have it stored in temporarily.

Computer says problem with new hardware when plugging in Sansa Clip MP3 player


Go to this link and select your unit in the download wizard and download the drivers for your device. Install the drivers without the Clip MP3 plugged in. Once the drivers are installed, you can then plug in the Clip MP3 and windows should correctly identify your new hardward and finish installing the drivers for it.

Sansa clip 2gb


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, 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.

Win cannot start my sansa clip configuration information in the registry code19incomplete or damaged


What version of windows do you have? Try getting the latest version of the software from:
http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1532

If that fails, disconnect the Sansa from the computer and turn it off. Hold in the volume + button and reconnect it to the computer. Continue holding the volume + button in until the "Found New Hardware" wizard pops up.

Windows xp professional does not recognize device


XP Professional tends to have problems with all devices when you are connected to a network. Disconnect your Sansa player from computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button and reconnect to the computer. Continue holding the volume + button until the "Found New Hardware" Wizard pops up - XP will load the needed drivers.

Computer not recognizing mp3 sansa clip


Comment by vickisanchez, posted on Mar 19, 2008 IT FINALLY WORKS !!!!

Sandisk Tech support had me do the following:

- Turn it OFF
- Put it in the HOLD position
- HOLD the center button IN while plugging into USB port, continue to hold for 5 to 7 sec even after plugged in.
At this point MY COMPUTER recognized it. And it worked.

He also had me to:

- go to WWW.MICROSOFT.COM
- In the upper right hand search bar, type in MTP PORTING KIT
I did this and downloaded the first one. Now my Sansa Clip work perfect. I wish I would have talked to him last week before I returned the last one, for the same reasons.

If this does not help call the 1-800 # , opt #4, and ask for GUY (yes that is really his name) out of 5 or so calls to Tech Support he is the only one who knew what he was doing, and how to actually HELP.
GOOD LUCK

Computer doesn't recognize MP3 player -


Make sure you are using a data transfer cable, and not just a "Charge Only Cable"... There is a difference, and they may look similar and both connect via USB so it can be tricky.
