For some devices you will have to load the device drivers first then connect the device by usb.  The device should have come with an installation cd.

My mp3 player wont charge but will turn on when pouted in

connect the Sansa (via the player's USB cord) to different USB ports on the computer until the Sansa starts to charge. A weak or non-working USB port won't charge the Sansa.

  • Reset the Sansa MP3 player. Slide the player's "Power" switch all the way up to the "On" position. Hold the switch in that position for 20 seconds. The Sansa resets. Try to charge the player.
  • Install the latest firmware onto the Sansa MP3 player. Download the Sansa Firmware Updated (link in References), and then click the link in Resources for the specific model of Sansa you own to learn how to update the player's firmware.

    Can i play SanDisk Sansa Fuze 2GB MP3 Player while charging

    It depends. What's charging it?

    If it's connected to a computer's USB port, then no, you can't listen to it.

    If it's connected to a USB charger, such as you might find for cell phones, then yes, you can listen to it.

    My sansa 2gb went dead now it wont charge @ all

    It's either problem with the player or the charger if you usually charge it when you connect to the computer then it's more likely to be a problem on the player itself and it will have to be replaced ,if it has warranty then return it.
    You can also try a different USB cable or USB port.

    Mp3 2gb sansa veiw wont turn on... but charge screen will show up


    it seems that your player are corrupted.
    it means some of your file are infected with virus and corrupted.

    if you can try to reformat your player i suggest you to do it.

    be aware that if you will going to reformat all files saved are possible to be deleted.

    My pc wont let me install new sandisk 2gb mp3 player

    On your sansa, go to "Settings" then System Settings" then "USB Mode," then change it to MSC, if that does not work, try the other modes, just in case.
    Hope this helps!

    When i connect my sansa clip 2gb it will not charge. it say connected and then goes off. I thought it was charging but when i checked it the battery had died what do you suggest i do to get it working...

    Check for the following:

    USB Cable 
    Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable. 

    Computer in Hibernation mode 
    Make sure the computer isn’t entering hibernate or sleep mode while the device is connected.  The computer must be on in order to charge your player. 

    USB Port 2.0 
    Make sure the player is connected USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems). 

    USB Port location 
    Try plugging in different USB port (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); sometimes the front USB ports have problem charging up the device. 

    Make sure the battery is fully charged.  It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery. 

    Latest firmware 
    Make sure to update firmware by downloading and installing the Sansa Firmware Updater
