SOURCE: My computer isn't detecting my Sansa mp3 player anymore.

First, make sure the lock switch isn't engaged.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + (or Record) button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + (or Record) button in. Keep holding the volume + (or Record) 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 --> Control Panel-->System--> Hardware--> Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).

SOURCE: sansa will not detect

If you are using a USB connector [that connects extra ports to your computer] it sometimes doesnt work... so if possible hook the USB sansa cable to the main ports in the back of the server. It might also work to hook it in, and then go to 'My Computer' and see if it shows up there. Good Luck =]

Turn the player off before you plug it in and if it doesn't find it then turn it on while plug in.

Your SD card is locked meaning is write protected. To unlock it you need to slide the small plastic toggle out of the 'lock' position. See image below

Sansa e140 just need some help with menus

When you power on your MP3 player it will go to the FM radio. 1. Press menu.
2. Go down once and you'll be on "Mode". Press the right button to access the mode menu.
3. You either press the enter button after accessing the menu or go down to select Playback mode (I forget which one it is).

Good Luck!

Hello, I've actually had the same problem with mine. What happens with mine is the spring becomes loose or bent and needs to be (gently) pried back into it's original position. Hope this is of some help, Jenna
