To clarify Randy's solution: 1. Make sure you have the Firmware Updater program. (Download from Samsung Web Site. Current firmware version 001.156.876) 2. Start the Firmware Updater program BEFORE plugging in MP3 Player. It will say "Searching" until you connect your MP3. 3. Make sure you check the box "Format Data Area" (This will erase the drive and Re-Format it). 4. Press and hold the start button while connecting to your USB port. Do not let go of the start button! 4. When you see the Updater dialog box say "Initializing", let go of the start button. 5. Follow the rest of the Firmware Updater program prompts. 6. Load your player and enjoy! Until it happens again :( LOL PS Media Player 11 caused my player to crash too!

I had this exact problem after using Media Player version 11 to sync the player. I contacted Samsung support and they helped me fix the problem. It was the best support I ever received from a support group. Using Media Player 11 can cause the firmware in the player to become corrupted. You need to go to the Samsung website and download the latest version of the firmware. Like I said the call-in support was excellent and I would recomend calling them to walk you through it, but as I remember it; You hold down the power key as you are plugging the player into the USB port. This forced the USB port to recognize the player as new hardware and establish connection. I was then able to use an install wizard to load the new firmware. All was well after reinstalling the firmware. I'm just hesitant now to use Media Player 11 to load the device. I just opened up the folder in "my computer" and dropped files onto the drive.

I want to download an album from my computer to my Insignia mp3. When I plug the player into my computer all I get is the charging screen. I want to get the album from media player.Jerry


When the player connects only with the charging display, there are 3 points that need to be checked:

Battery and cable connection
1. Connecting the player to the computer, the charging symbol should start loading; battery "green" or "partly green" indication. The player should respond with "OK to disconnect" = connection established correctly.
For proper charging and connection put the USB cable plug directly to the computer preferred at the back side: not through a hub or card reader.

MSC mode
2. The player is switched to MSC mode. MSC = Mass Storage Class. In this mode the device is seen as a flash drive also called removable disk, that can be accessed using Windows Explorer.
The Hold switch was in hold position on the top side, before connecting to the computer.

Disconnect the player and release the hold switch. Next the player should be in standard MTP mode. MTP = Media Transfer Protocol used for transferring files with media software.

MTP mode
3. The media software on the computer for transferring files is not installed or not working properly. Update or reinstall the media software.

When this didn't help the firmware on the player needs to be reinstalled.

My computer is not showing the sansa clip logo when connected


Depending on how many songs that you loaded the last time you used the player, it may stay on "Writing" for quite some time. Eventually, it will go away and go back to charging.

Make sure the hold switch was not accidentally engaged.

To force recognition:
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.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).

Cannot connect


Change the USB Mode from MSC to either auto or MTP and see if you have better luck. If this fails to resolve, here are some other steps you can take:
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:

My sansa e250 keeps connecting and disconnecting from the computer. every time i plug it into the computer, it keeps saying that it's connected and disconnected to the computer. this switches repeatidly...


If it is flashing constantly, go into Start --> Control Panel --> Printers/Other Hardware --> System --> Hardware --> Device Manager --> and uninstall either the Sansa or the MTP device. Disconnect the Sansa from the computer, and reinstall the software that came with the mp3 player.

Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player Problem connection


Found the solution on another site (http://www.everythingusb.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=11238). To quote user AFHavemann :

"* Plug in the player so the USB bus can see it.

* Once it’s recognized (i.e., the device screen reads "Charging" and "USB Disconnected"), go to the Control Panel and click "System"

* Choose "Hardware" then "Device Manager" tab.

* Look for the name of your device under “Portable Devices” in the list

* If the name of your player is under “MTP Device” then the correct drivers are probably loaded

* Right-click on the name of your device and click "Properties"

* Click “Update Driver”"

Then follow the prompts from there. The computer searches for the driver software, etc., and reinstalls/resets information related to the device, which fixed things such that the computer will now recognize the device. I'm not sure what causes the problem, but this solution seems to reset whatever's gone wrong.

MY sansa e260 MP3 player


Try to add the device manually.

Plug the player in while it’s set to "MTP" mode. (This selection is in the Settings area)

On your computer, open Device Manager, and select: Add Hardware.

Choose the "already connected the hardware" option.

From list, choose "Add a new hardware device".

Select: "Install the hardware that I manually select from a list."

Select: Portable Devices, then MTP device.

Hope it works for you.
