    I have the same Problem. I connect it to the computer. It doesn't show up anywhere. Not even in the windows explorer. I tried reinstalling the driver. That doesn't help. And windows tells me that the device could not be startet and gives me a "Code 10" error.

    The manual's reccomendation is based on a player that is on, but not being used at all - the estimate is completely unrealistic. This is a pretty weak mp3 player that needs to be charged daily. If you are losing charge completely - holding it less than 2 hrs - then the player is defective. But 8 hours of continued use will completely drain this player.

    Make sure the hold switch is not activated when connecting the player to the computer.

How do i access mp3 files on the SD card


Put the card into the player, connect your player to your computer via USB, and open up "My Computer".

You will either see the player under the computer as something like "Sansa Clip", or you will see two new drive letters, one for the Clip's internal memory, and one for the microSD card.

If you see the two new drive letters, double-click on the one associated with the microSD card, and you will see the files on it (probably in folders, like "Music").

If you just see something like "Sansa Clip", double-click on that, and you should see two entries, "Internal Memory" and "Expansion Card". Double-click on "Expansion Card", and you will see the files on the microSD card.

How do i download music to my San Disk Sansa clip MP3 player?


You shold be able to sync the Sansa to your media player on your computer by just connecting the supplie dthe cable to the USB port and open windows media player. If you are just trying to dump songs on to it then all you need do is connect the sansa and go to my computer find the new device, open the device and copy your music from the folder you hvae it in and drop it directly to it. The Sansa is not like the I Pods that use software to sync music. Basically it is like a flash drive (thumb Drive) or a hard drive.

Double click the My Computer icon when your Sansa clip is connected, and open the "Record" folder; then click on the FM or Voice recorder, as appropriate. Or, open in Windows Media Player library.
