Seems like the Operating System (is it Windows XP) may have encountered errors loading the native drivers for your player when in MTP mode, or the Windows Media Player version on the PC your plugging your player in is Windows 9 or below. The minimum requirements of the E250 is Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Media Player 10 or above. Falling short of this minimum requirement may cause your player not to be properly recognized. But assuming that the PC you're using the player with meets all the requirements, try to re-load the native driver by plugging your player to the PC and doing the following: Step 1: Right-click on the "My Computer" icon, then select "Manage". This will open the "Computer Management" window. Step 2: Left-click on "Device Manager" Your player comes in two modes -- MTP and MSC -- and is how Windows XP recognizes your player depends on which mode it is set in. To access the modes on your E250, use the menu and navigate as follows: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode If your player is currently in MTP mode, then try this: (1) Left-click in "Windows Portable Device". You should find your E250 indicated there. Check for an error indicator on the left side of that icon. The error indicator would be yellow-colored icons displayed as "!" or "?" (2): Right-click on the E250 and select "Scan for hardware changes" or "uninstall". Both would have the same effect If your player is currently in MSC mode, then try this: (1): Left-click in "Universal Serial Bus Controller". You should find a "Mass Storage Device" there (make sure that the E250 is the only device plugged in to your PC at this time). Check for an error indicator on the left side of that icon. The error indicator would be yellow-colored icons displayed as "!" or "?" (2): Right-click on the "Mass Storage" and select "Scan for hardware changes" or "uninstall". Both would have the same effect Step 3: Unplug your E250 and plug it back in. This would force Windows to re-load the driver. 90-99% of the time, it would re-load the native drivers correctly. I hope this works.

My sanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player will not charge anymore. At least not on the computer I'm on. I have had it hooked up to charge for 2 days now and nothing. Why is this and how can I charge it?


This is direct from the sansa FAQs at http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_clip/faqs 02. Why won’t my Sansa Clip charge when I connect it to my computer? USB Cable
Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable.

Computer in Hibernation mode
Make sure that the computer isn’t entering hibernate or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be on in order to charge your player.

USB Port 2.0
Make sure your player is connected USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).

USB Port location
Try plugging in different USB port (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); sometimes the front USB ports have problem charging up the device.

Battery
Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.

Latest firmware
Make sure to update firmware by downloading and installing the Sansa Firmware Updater.

I hope this helps, and don't forget to rate the answer.

Sansa Connect Problem


I had the same problem with my Sansa Connect. It refused to start up when connecting to my computer. I think it may have something to do with not refreshing my music every so often. I tried the Recovery Tool, but it did absolutely nothing. Same problem was still there. So, I did a factory reset and it worked. No problems. I would recommend refreshing music regularly to avoid this problem.
