Okay, so I plug my Sansa into the computer, and it says that a USB device is plugged in; I click on the G: drive, and the folders in it are 'Audible', 'Config', and 'Record', along with a file. I clicked on all the folders, but they're empty! Can anyone tell me how to get my computer to recognize my MP3 player?

usually wen u plug it into the usb cord, u shud be able to open a folder and put musik through that.
My computers. than go to Sansa
or WMP depending on ur version
go to Synchronizing or Copy to CD or DEVICE.
there should be syncing button under the music list depending on the version.
but i stick to open my computer and the Sansa folder.
IF NOT THAN DO THIS..
Go to ur Sansa in the USB option change it to MSC than follow these instructions
To add songs using the MSC mode, follow these steps:
1. Organize your songs into folders and place it into one directory. 2. Open "My Computer" and open the drive for your Sansa. 3. click on Tools choose File Option, there will be a Pop-up screen and choose View Tab 4. Select on Show Hidden files and Folder Option, so you can see all the files 5. Choose MUSIC Folder, double click and Drag and drop all the songs on that folder, and It will go automatically on your player. OR highlight a songs, right click select COPY, go to MUSIC folder right click then PASTE and it will be save on your Player
You don't mention what type of PC you manage your clip on .. but if it is a MAC
Plug the Clip in via USB
Click on the Sansa Clip listing on the left - Not the disk itself, the DEVICE. Click the 'Partition' tab Under Volume Scheme, choose '1 Partition' Click the 'Options...' button Choose 'Master Boot Record', then click ok Click the drop down next to 'Format:' and choose "MS-DOS (FAT)" Click Apply (Thanks to Pardsbane over at the anythingbutipod forum)
When this is complete, you can eject the disk if needed, and your clip should be back to normal. You will probaly lose all music files when you do this.. but at least you will have your Clip back to a functioning device
If you have a Windows based PC
I suggest you first have the Sansa Updater installed or become familiar with how to manually update
Plug in the Clip via USB
Go to My computer
Delete one of the music files within the Music Folder
Test the clip
If this doesn't fix it..
You should reformat the drive
You will lose ALL music audio books stored on the drive
In My Computer Right Clik on the Sansa
When Complete run the Updater
Now try to place a album or song via WMP on the Clip
Test the clip before putting more music on it
Sorry mate it has been corrupted and and may not work any more it seems the set up and read file that is like a operating system has been moved or deleted. The same things happens with usb drives.or has been disconnected without using the disconnect usb device icon.
Plug it into the USB, then select the drive in XP " my computer " or in vista/7 " computer " and open the device location. you should see a music folder in the main directory and from there right click and delete any song or folder on that device.
1. First, check your device setting up on MTP or MSC? Turn on device, go to "settings" , press down or up to find "USB Mode", you can see the check mark at MTP (auto detect) or MSC mode. Change to another usb mode.
2. You have 2 ways to delete songs:
2.1. Delete songs by device: play songs, press down (sub menu) until you meet "delete song", select it and yes
If you delete all items in device: Settings, Format, and yes
2.2. Delete songs by computer: plug device to computer, double click on device icon, Music folder, and delete songs you want. If you don't see songs in there, unplug the device from pc, and then change USB mode, and plug device to pc to delete.
