My sansa 250 mp3 player

I have a sansa 250 mp3 player. i recently just got a new computer. as i tried to download music onto my mp3 player a message kept popping up saying that i have to install new hardware. it tried to install something called mtp for my sansa. then it said that it would not be able to install because i do not have the installation cd. i did not need the installation cd when i first got this mp3 player. what do i do if i do not have the installation cd?

    I have the same problem. Got my sansa about six months ago and used Rhapsody. Then lost my sansa for the last three months, but it jsut turned up. I had cancelled Rhapsody. I have gotten a new computer since then. In trying to hook up to this computer, ti says I need some software.

  • Catorachi Dec 29, 2008

    I got this Sansa as a gift from my cousin and he lost the installation disc. He said that I would be able to download it off the internet but I haven't found a site where i can download it. People have said in Forums that you don't need the disc you just need Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10 or 11. I have that and it still doesn't show up on my computer. when it's plugged in all it says is found new hardware MTP Device. I don't know what to do.

If you are using Vista OS the driver for samsa mp3s are not present in the system.. you need to call the manufacturer and have them send you a hotfix link...

same thing happened to me i have a Sansa 2GB clip which i received from our christmas party at work... my excitement turned into frustration when i found out that it is not compatible with the new laptop that i purchase because it has Vista OS in it...

they sent me this Hot fix link and after downloading.. it finally worked with my windows media player

The drivers for the sansa would be coming from your windows media player software and also your operating system. The minimum system requirements of the player are windows xp with wmp 11 or 10 and vista with 11. Downloading the appropriate version of windows media player would help with this issue. if not download the mtp porting off the microsoft.com site.

    If you are using vista try installing the MTP porting kit from the microsoft.com website. If that wont work try updating your vista operating system.

the only thing that you have to do is that when they send you that message don't click yes. But you also have to go to www.sandisk.com so you can download the software for your sansa. Hope this helped find the solution for your issue!!
