Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player
I pluged in my sansa clip into the usb port and the icon came up but it only gave three options
Transfer files using windows media player

The MP3 is indeed found in windows media player but when ever i try to transfer a MP3 it does it but then it won't show up on the mp3 when i unplug it.
So i just want to be able to find it in my computer but it will not show up in my computer no matter what I do. and ive gone to device manager and found it and everything and i still can't transfer files,
and ive used every usb port on my comp

" The following steps finally fixed everything for me. While it may seem long, it only takes about 15 minutes and should fix everything.

unzip firmware file
connect to computer
drag firmware file onto sansa Clip icon in Windows explorer
wait to finish all copying (Sansa Clip screen will say connected, not writing or reading)
firmware updates on device, then it shuts off automatically
turn it back on
reformat from device (settings menu, format)
put in msc (under USB mode on settings menu)
open sansa Clip E:/ in Windows explorer, delete all files (should be 6-8 folders and files in top level directory of Clip)
reformat from windows explorer (right click, format, (FAT file system, NOT FAT32))
put in mtp (under USB mode on settings menu)
It will run through quick setup again, due to files deleted before.

"Update Track Licenses' (same menu)
connect to computer
wait for Rhapsody to fully load clip (may take 30 seconds)
reformat from rhapsody (right click on sansa clip icon in rhapsody, select reformat)
hold down control and shift buttons at same time, right click on sansa clip icon in Rhapsody, select 'reset secure clock'
right click on sansa clip icon in rhapsody, select authorize device
wait while sansa clip updates (wait for screen of device to say 'connected' for a while, rather than writing or reading)
wait a while updates finish
verify acount, and dates on device, under setting menu, account
should say renewed (with today's date) expires a date 30 days later.
download one new track from rhapsody you never have downloaded before
transfer that one track to clip
wait for all updates to finish
verify account, dates on device, check that the track plays properly"
Hope that helps.
