Computer won't recognize player

Whenever I plug my player into the USB port, my computer doesn't recoginize it...nothing happens. I have Windows XP and have never had this problem with my player until today. It will recognize my husband's player, which is the same model. Anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it?

    I have the same problem. I hear it "connect" with the windows BLEEP sound, but it doesn't show up anywhere. It used to work fine and come up with the "What do you want to do" Window. But for some nothing. Is it a Windows issue or Sansa?

Check the USB mode in Settings-USB on the Sansa, and try both MTP and MSC modes - one will go.

Have you downloaded Widows Media Player 11? That should fix it. If not, download sa6025_97_pal_eng from and run it.

Computer doesn't recognize unit when connected

I am guessing there is a problem with the driver for the audio player. I have a Coby Audio Player MP-C827, and one day my brother decided to just remove it from the computer without correctly stopping it. Ever since, whenever I plug in it into my PC, it just does not open...nothing happens. And I don't have the cd to re-install the driver files. With respect to all of the above, a driver file which is needed by the mp3 is either damaged or corrupt. Contact me at

Doesnt start up

Hi. My Inovix mp3/4 player suffered a similar fate when it crashed during a Firmware reload. The player went completely dead and wasn't even recognised by the computer when plugged into the USB port. I basically kept on trying - a couple of times whenever I used the computer - using different ports. 2 days later - 'ding-dong' - Windows XP suddenly recognised something was in the port, and I tentatively attempted a Firmware reload. Success! (Don't ask me to explain it tho'...)
