What i would recommend you to do is to uninstall the device and reinstall it back...to uninstall it...assuming that you are running windows xp...click on start, right click on my computer and go to properties..you should have your system properties open then click under hardware then device manager...look for the sansa device..it usually located under portable device..if its not showing there i would recommend you to look for under disk drives and see if its there..right click on the device and click on uninstall...after you unintall it unplug your device from the computer....Then follow this link below to download the porting kit...http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A2E73160-E862-4F19-BB26-C0CAFE798955&displaylang=en .Then check the mode of yuor device to make sure it sunder MTP not msc...To check the mode go under menu, settings and choose usb mode...After you check the mode open up your windows media player click on tools, options and click under privacy...clear the history and caches...after you finish you can plug the device on the back of the computer not the front then windows should recongnize it and it should work properly..if that doesnt solve the problems upgrade your windows media player to 11 even though you have done that already..and try to reconnect your device..make sure you have it connected on the back USB>>>

And if that doesnt work try to obtain the driver for your sandisk device go to http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/index.asp and find the driver for your device..and then connecct the device on the back of your computer...it should work properly..if you are still having any problems..let me know..i would be more than happy to assist you..

I can not resync my sansa e270 when i plug it into the computer, i use rhapsody and never had this problem before


Hi, theres 2 ways usually to sync with sansa.

usually wen u plug it into the usb cord, u shud be able to open a folder and put musik through that.

My computers. than go to Sansa

or WMP depending on ur version

go to Synchronizing or Copy to CD or DEVICE.

there should be syncing button under the music list depending on the version.

but i stick to open my computer and the Sansa folder.


IF NOT THAN DO THIS..

Go to ur Sansa in the USB option change it to MSC than follow these instructions


To add songs using the MSC mode, follow these steps:

1. Organize your songs into folders and place it into one directory.
2. Open "My Computer" and open the drive for your Sansa.
3. click on Tools choose File Option, there will be a Pop-up screen and choose View Tab
4. Select on Show Hidden files and Folder Option, so you can see all the files
5. Choose MUSIC Folder, double click and Drag and drop all the songs on that folder, and It will go automatically on your player. OR highlight a songs, right click select COPY, go to MUSIC folder right click then PASTE and it will be save on your Player


Good luck.

Files , I want to delete are invisible.. when searching device files...


It's kind of crazy, but here's what works for me (pain in the **** too). Some of the songs, you can see in explorer IF you set the MP3 player to Autodetect. The rest of the songs you can see if you switch to MSC.

So to be able to see all of the songs, I need to switch from one to another. I suppose that if I reformat the mp3 player (after having backed up all songs). Then I can choose just one mode to upload the songs.

I'm guessing that it has to do with differences with rhapsody, windows music player from XP and windows music player from Vista. But not sure.

Go to MENU>> Settings>> USB >> and switch between 'auto detect' and MSC.

Can not view my music files on my laptop (but can on my desktop)


Get the latest firmware upgrade - this player wasn't originally designed with WMP 11 in mind. Also, make sure the laptop has the folders "My Documents" and "My Music" on it - this is primarily where WMP reads from.

Files on player are not listed in wmp or in windows explorer


change the settings of the player to MSC and connect the device to your computer. It will be detected as a removal disc drive. Open it and it should contain the folders in your player. IF you can only see a few folders. Click on Tools-Folder Option - Show hidden files and folders. Then you should see the folders that you have. Right click on the song and choose delete.
