Go into the menu of the Sansa itself and change the USB mode to MSC mode- the user manual will tell you how to do this. Then try plugging it into the computer again. If it still fails, you may have to install Microsoft's MTP Porting kit, but I would have to know your Operating System before i could tell you for sure. Here is a link to some additional information that may or may not be helpful - from people who have had the same problem:

Sony nwz-b142 doesn't display in my computer. I already tried installing the device in the control panel and it says device works properly and yet it doesn't display in my computer


This advice could help you if your player works properly and the problem is in your pc only:
At first you should be sure that your USB cable can work.
Then let's see the PC.
You don't need any driver software, if your pc has windows xp sp2 or later and Windows Media Player 11.
If you have problem with your device follow this steps:
1. Connect the player to the computer.
2. From the computer, select start - Control Panel - Performance and Maintenance - System. "System Properties" is displayed.
3. Select Hardware tab, and open Device manager.
4. Open Universal Serial Bus controllers, and select USB Mass Storage Device or WALKMAN NWZ-XXXXX.
5. Select Action - Update Driver ... from the menu bar. "Welcome to the Hardware Update Wizard" is displayed.
6. A dialog on Windows Update connection will be displayed. Select No, not this time., followed by Next.
7. Select Install from a list or specific location [Advanced], followed by Next for the hardware install method.
8. Select Don't search. I will choose the driver to install., followed by Next for the search and install option.
9. Check Show compatible hardware, and then select MTP Device* in the model list, followed by Next. The device driver is installed.
10. "Completing the Hardware Update Wizard" message is displayed, and confirm "MTP Device" message. Click Finish.

Good luck!

I put the usb port in the computer and it will say the computer has found new hardware and for me to install it when i do it will say hardware can't install. what do i do?


Selecting or switching automatically MTP < > MSC
Connecting the player before a media software program is installed, the player will connect as a flash drive also called removable disk in MSC mode.
There are 2 settings for connection mode in the player, MTP and MSC.
See page 36 of the manual for more information and how to set the USB mode:
http://www.cobyusa.com/files/manuals/MP705_MN.pdf

USB mode MTP
Install Windows Media Player 11 for MTP connection to the computer.
When needing a media player update from Microsoft see:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx


USB mode MSC
When you experience next making connection:
Connecting the device to the computer Wizard found new hardware pops up.
Only this time the Windows update searching for software will not work on automatic routine:
ending up with "Cannot Install this Hardware".

Solution:
Manual performing the wizard, setting the device to USB connection type:
1. Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software ?
Select "No, not this time".
[Next]
2. If your hardware came with an installation CD, or floppy disk, insert it now.
Select "Install from a list or specific location(Advanced)."
[Next]
3. Please use your search and installations options.
Select "Don't search I will choose the driver to install."
[Next]
4. Select the device driver you want to install for this hardware.
Select "USB Mass Storage Device."
[Finish]

Note: when using MSC mode always safely remove hardware, the players' removable disk. The icon in the right corner of the task bar.

Computer cant open sansa clip


Make sure the lock switch isn't engaged.
Double-click My Computer, and see if there is a Sansa icon (some computers will only show it as a removable drive or an MTP device).

If the computer is not recognizing the player:
disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).

Easy rip does not reconize the opal mp3 player is plugged to the usb port All of the ports on my computor work.


2 ways to fix.

1st way. Goto had add new hardware wizard.
Have computer find new hardware.
Turn your player to MTP instead of msc
To do that goto player settings and change protocal.
Have the computer look for new hardware that is MTP.
2nd way
Don't use the easy rip.
Mp3 you can drag and drop right into the folder option of the player.
IF you want music video or movie's on it you have to.
download Any Video Convertor http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/
It changes files to mpeg or any file you mpeg is the best for the next step.
Then download this. Sigmatel Motion Video http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm
Its also a free. Convet the mpeg to SMV file. and drag and drop into you opal video folder.
works great but takes a little practice with the settings.
