Check DVD recorder file types supported? Windows Media player likes WMA and WMV. DVD movies are AVI, MPG, or VOB. These are just examples.

TRY SOME OF THESE STEPS BEFORE YOU THROW IT

I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click Of Death"

If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

Make sure you are logged in as an administrator. I'd also try the thumb drive in a different computer just to make sure the problem isn't with the thumb drive itself. The drive could also be unformatted, or formatted with a filesystem for a different platform that can't be read by XP.

OK PEOPLE!! have asked this same question over and...am getting the run around...please don't make me continue asking for help with this question. its a sandisk mp3 mini clip, and this issue is getting any...


Use SanDisk MP3 Players
SanDisk is an electronic device manufacturer that creates various types of MP3 players under the SanDisk Sansa product line.
The SanDisk MP3 players range in storage capacity, starting at 512mb, and are intended to operate on the Windows operating system.
Most SanDisk MP3 players also include a built-in video player with a color screen, an FM radio tuner, and a memory flash card slot to expand the MP3 player's storage capacity.
Use SanDisk MP3 players to take your computer's MP3 library with you and listen to music wherever you go.

1. Verify that your computer meets the operating specifications required to sync the SanDisk MP3 player with the PC.
All SanDisk MP3 players require Windows XP or later; Windows Media Player; and a USB 1.0 port. A USB 2.0 is important if you want high-speed music syncing.
2, Check that the SanDisk MP3 player has a full battery charge.
All SanDisk MP3 players have a rechargeable lithium ion battery, and some SanDisk devices have a replaceable battery.
The battery icon on the top right-hand side of the SanDisk MP3 player's screen displays the current status of the battery's charge.
If the battery is low, recharge it before using the SanDisk player for the first time.
To charge, connect the player to your computer's powered USB port using the included USB cable.
The SanDisk player's screen will display a yellow charging icon.
Unplug when charging is complete.

3. To turn on the SanDisk MP3 player for the first time, unlock the "hold" switch on the top of the MP3 player by sliding it so that the orange tab does not appear.
Then, press the "power button" once.
Wait for the SanDisk MP3 player to respond.
The thumbweel of the player will flash a light and the screen will turn on to display the player's menu options.
Turn off the SanDisk player by holding down the player's power button for two seconds.
Wait for the screen to display "Goodbye" before releasing the button.
4. Practice resetting the SanDisk MP3 player to solve critical software errors and to fix the MP3 player if it freezes.
To reset the player, hold down the power button for fifteen seconds.
This resets the MP3 player to its original factory settings and can help resolve any problems you encounter while using the SanDisk MP3 player.
5. Connect the SanDisk MP3 player to your computer using the included USB cable.
Once the computer has sensed the connected device, the SanDisk player's screen will display "Connected" and the SanDisk Portable Media Player will be listed under Other in your computer's My Computer window.
6. Add music to the SanDisk MP3 player.
Double-click the Portable Media Player listed in the My Computer window.
Double-click the Music folder.
Select the MP3 files that you wish to load onto the MP3 player and drag them into the Music folder.
The player will load them into its internal memory and make them available for playback once the device is disconnected from the computer.
7. Sync your MP3 song playlists from Windows Media Player to the SanDisk MP3 player.
Create a playlist in Windows Media Player and connect the SanDisk MP3 player to your computer (see Step 5).
Once its connected, Windows will display a dialog box. In the box, click "Sync digital media files to this device."
In the next window, click Set Up Sync. In the menu, click Personal Playlists and then select the playlists that you wish to transfer to the SanDisk player.
Click the Add button then push the Finish button to transfer your Windows Media Player playlists to the MP3 player.

No extra software is needed if you are running XP or Vista. Just plug the player into an empty usb port and wait for windows to recognize it. Then you can drag and drop your music into the music folder under the internal memory of the player or you can sync it through Windows Media Player.

Sandisk Sans e250 player stop working


Go ahead and do this, in case the DB is corrupted:
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Hi blackmajik, I just got a Sandisk m250. Windows wouldn't recognize it either until I updated my Windows Media Player to version 11. Now XP sees it just fine and the MP3 player syncs with WMP and accepts and plays music!
