I have the same problem, except that I can get sync if i power the unit down after discoeccting the failed attempt to recognize USB device. Sometimes the MTP device prompt shows up and then doesnt when I try again, I solved this by downloading codecs and utilites for windows Media Player. I had ver,.10, went to 11. This seems to be better as the available downloads are more effective,

Now i can sync, still doesnt recognize all the time, but just unplugging it and restarting windows media player with the device unplugged seems to work. Use the Settings in WMP and open the "available devices or supported devices on web " and you can download free updates, codecs, etc,,, that got mine working.

Device not playing


The software/firmware of the player is going to need to be updated. You can download the latest drivers from the sandisk website so pc recognizes it, then download the software/firmware update and transfer it to the player

My computer cannot pick my mp3 sansa player


This solution is specifically for the Sansa c200 series, but it will get you started in the right direction - check Sandisk's website for the specific method of entering MSC mode for your particular Sansa:
Connect the device to the PC in MSC Mode
View/c200: Turn on then press and hold the rewind button while plugging to the PC
If that fails, unplug the Sansa from the computer. Uninstall all the Sansa software in the add/remove programs section of Control Panel. Reinstall the clean version of the software from Sandisk’s website – make sure you get the files for the c200 series. Then replug the Sansa and try again. The root of the problem is that Sansa has one set of drivers and Windows has another. If you plug the mp3 player into the computer before installing the Sansa drivers, the Windows drivers will trump the Sansa’s.
Here is a helpful link from Sandisk on the problem with extra information on Vista operating systems:
