Make sure the hold/lock switch was not accidentally engaged.
If not, make sure the USB Mode in the Settings menu is set to either MTP or Auto. There is a button on the player that, if held too long, can accidentally switch the USB Mode.
visha - get a firmware upgrade - the Sansa clip is not naturally Vista-compatible - it needs help via a firmware upgrade
If none of the above lead the computer to recognize the device:
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
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/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

How can I download music from computer to Mp3 player


1. Get on Computer 2. Plug in USB cord in the USB slot on the main computer. 3. Open My Computer and it should say on the side there is a USB device or the type of MP3 players name. 4. Open up another My Computer window. 5. Goto the location your music files are located and make sure both windows are visible on the screen. 6. Drag your music files to your MP3's music file section. Sometimes the music files wont work so first try the WMA (windows media audio) file first. If the WMA files dont work on your MP3, convert them to MP3.

How do I remove unwanted pop ups?


Internet pop-ups can be an annoyance. These windows are usually associated with different forms of advertisements and at times can include viruses that can infect the computer. Pop-ups do not have to be a part of computer use if the user does not desire this distraction. There are ways to stop pop-ups and prevent them from appearing unless desired. Pop-up blocker allows the user to block these items and select which items to allow.

Open Internet Explorer. Click "Tools" from the menu bar. Tools can be found on the bar that lists "File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, Help" directly beneath the address bar. Click "Internet Options" from the "Tools" menu. Click the "Privacy" tab in the "Internet Options" box. Click to check the box that says "Turn on pop-up blocker" in the "Pop-up Blocker" section of the menu. Click "Apply" to save changes. Click "OK" to close the "Internet Options" box. The computer will now block all pop-ups from websites. If downloading items from the Web, the computer will ask whether you would like to allow these items to be opened. Hope this helps.

How do i download music to psp


I have downloaded music from my PC to PSP. You need a USB to mini-USB cord. Plug the cord into both the PSP and PC. The PC should recognize a new "mass storage device". Open up that ballon on your PC and name that port with a file name. Then, Go to where your music is stored on your PC and "send it" to the PSP file and it will download the music to your memory stick. Good luck!

How do I download music on my mp3 player? I bought the mp3 player(gpxml638b) and it did not have any soft ware. I have the wire to plug from mp3 to computer, but how do I start downloading music?


Sir,

1. Turn on the MP3 Player by holding the PLAY/PAUSE button.
2. Take the USB Cord and plug the corresponding ends into the MP3 Player and a Computer.
3. When connected the LCD Display will either say “USB” or “MTP”.
4. Press the “M” (mode) button to switch between “USB” and “MTP” mode.
“MTP” mode will only work, when your player is connected to Microsoft
® Windows® XP and Windows® Media Player 10.
The MP3 Player will only work in “USB” mode when it is connected to Windows® 98SE, ME, or 2000 Professional.


1. Start Windows Media Player 9 and connect the MP3 Player to your computer.
2. Click “Copy to CD or Device”.
3. In the drop-down list, on the “Items to Copy” pane, click the play list, category, or other item that you want to copy.
4. Clear the check boxes next to any files you do not want to copy.
5. In the drop-down list, on the “Items to Copy” pane, click the device that you want to copy files to.
6. Click the ‘Copy’ button.
7. Repeat steps 2-5 for any other items that you want to copy to your unit.



1. Start Windows Media Player 10 and connect the unit to your computer. On your player’s display it should say ‘MTP’. If not, then while the unit is connected press the ‘M’ (mode) button to change from ‘USB’ to ‘MTP’ mode.
2. If you have not set up synchronization between your computer
and this device, the Device Setup Wizard starts. In the Device Setup Wizard, select Manual.
3. Click Finish.
4. Select Library option. On the right pane select Sync List.
5. From the left pane you can select the Play list or Library and you will see the content songs in the center pane.
6. Select the songs from the center pane, drag and add them to the Sync List.
7. Click the ‘Start Sync’ button in the Sync List pane.
8. Repeat steps 4-7 for any other items that you want to copy to your unit.


Thanks
Good Luck

My computer will not show the music i have on my mp3 player


There is a super easy solution, if you are using windows try using a live cd, which is a bootable cd. Here is the link to a good one: http://ftp.heanet.ie/pub/linuxmint.com/stable/8/LinuxMint-8.iso

just download and burn onto a disc using an iso burner (http://www.freeisoburner.com/)

then boot up the disk and plug in your phone, the os should recognize the mp3 as a mass storage device just like a usb then you can retrieve your songs and delete them as you would files on a usb

Need help putting music on my Nokia Express Music phone.


Maybe you have a faulty cord.
Try using the cord with your old phone, ect.
Also, is this a brand new phone? If it is, maybe take it back to the shop and ask them, if it's not then maybe it was faulty when you bought it.
Either way you should probably take it and the cord back to the shop.
And you can always just bluetooth songs from your other phone onto this phone.
Get back to me mate.
