Sansa Fuze player will not connect to the computer


The Sansa Fuze information support is on next site:

Sansa Fuze can connect in either MTP or MSC mode.
MTP is Media Transfer Protocol when a software program like Windows
Media Player 10 or higher is installed.
MSC is Mass Storage Class when the player is detected as an external flash drive in "My Computer".

The connection mode can be set to one of the following USB modes:
auto detect:
the player will connect in MTP or MSC mode. It depends on the drivers that are installed for the USB ports for the operating system and extra media software, if the data on the player can be detected. In auto detect
mode, MTP mode detection is only possible when having Windows Media Player 10 or higher installed.
detection on operating system Windows XP SP2 or higher, in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.
detection on operating system Windows in the explorer in "My Computer" and on MAC operating system.

Look in the manual on page 35 = page 38 in the pdf file, how to switch the USB mode under System Settings in the player:

My PC (windows XP) doesn't detect Sansa e250 MP3 player

Turn the player off before you plug it in and if it doesn't find it then turn it on while plug in.

Sandisk is not detected in Vista operating system notebook

See the FAQ here -

The most common reason for this problem is not having the latest Windows Media Player installed, or having a Windows OS version that is not supported by the Sansa player.
The Sansa players support Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista and above. If your operating system version is supported by the Sansa player:
SOLUTION 1 – Download and install the latest Windows Media Player

SOLUTION 2 – If that didn’t help, and you are running Windows Vista, apply the following hotfix - KB940199
SOLUTION 3 – If that didn’t help, download and Install the MTP Porting Kit (click here)
SOLUTION 4 – If that didn’t help, try connecting the device to the PC using MSC mode

View/c200: Turn on & press and hold the rewind button while plugging into the PC

PC won't detect sansa e280 please help me

I had the same prob with my e280 yesterday and i bought it 4 days ago. I'm using a vista o.s. and i found a way to transfer files this morning. if you are using a vista os you should first set your sansa to MTP mode so that your windows media player can detect your e280 then you can start synching. If you are using XP o.s. there shouldn't be any prob with that but you have to switch to MSC mode. you can find these settings on the setting menu of your e280 then USB can also open the E280 player if you see it on "my computer" there you can transfer the files.don't use your wmp player when you are doing this on vista cuz the wmp player will also synch at the same time and it will synch the same file.
