My compter can not find my mp3 player - RCA M4208 MP3 Player

    I tried to update the RCA M4208RD and it crashed halfway through. It said ERROR on the update progress window and now it wont work at all. It won't reset, it won't even turn on at all. The update software won't work as the computer won't find the device. I guess it is time to exchange it for a new one. It wouldn't turn off by the menu button since I got it and I figured it was just a quirk. Now I know it was a portent of things to come. No more RCA RIPOFFS FOR ME!

Go into the settings menu and switch it away from the USB mode it is in right now - if it is in MTP mode, change it to MSC and vice versa.

Make sure the lock switch on the back is in the unlocked position. For the player to say "Loading," especially the first time you plug it into the computer, is normal - your computer is communicating with the player, installing drivers, and trying to load the Easy Rip Software. If it stays on loading past 10 minutes, however, something is not right. If you have selected to open the device automatically using Windows Media Player, you are headed for trouble, especially if you have more music and other files on your computer than the mp3 player can handle. If you have accidentally done this, disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player.
If you have checked the above, and you are still having problems, disconnect the mp3 player from the computer. Hold in the power button for 10 seconds or more to reset the mp3 player. Try plugging the mp3 player into the computer again. If it stays on loading for more than 10 minutes, unplug the mp3 player, go into the settings menu and change the mode from MSC to MTP or vice versa. If it still misbehaves when you replug the mp3 player into the computer, download the latest Easy Rip software from RCA's website and update your player's firmware - take note of the section they have on Windows Vista if you have Windows Vista. Good luck!

Unplug the sansa and turn it off. Then plug it back into your computer. If it still doesn't recognize it, unplug it and change the usb setting, make sure you highlight it and then press the inner circle or it might change back into the other setting. This worked for me.
