SOURCE: REG - windows not recognised

For some models pressing select and the + volume button for 10 sec resets the device and it is recognized by the pc on connecting. Check ur manual to check the way to reset ur device. You can download the manual from http://www.sandisk.com in case you have misplaced it. Drop me a mail at balneet_83@yahoo.com to let me know if the solution worked for you.

Press and hold the lower volume button and plug it in to the computer simultaneously and keep holding the minus button until a box appears where the message of usb device malfunctioned and click on it. Then follow the instructions and it should be recognized.

SOURCE: Sansa Fuze 8GB hard drive shows up as unknown device.

Have you tried changing the USB Mode in your 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!

The software is only for Windows 98 otherwise the player is a plug and play device (Windows 2000, XP & Vista). Click here if your operating system is Windows 98.

Is there driver/ software for Win ME for the Sansa Clip mp3?


a friend told me that if the device shows as"connected" when hooked up (it does) AND the battery charges correctly (it does), then (a)the USB connection had enough juice; and (b) the PC recognizes it - i just had to FIND it. device manager/ MyComputer: nada; same for ANY file/ folder with "sansa" or "sandisk." working thru WMP (Windows Media Player), however, I discovered that drive E - for a portable hard drive, NOT currently connected via USB - was STILL showing up in the "Copy to CD or device" field. sure enough, it was the SanDisk clip player (even though it was NOT under the "Recognized Portable Devices" subsection). without using the installation disk at all, it downloaded tunes just fine. *note: the installation disk seemed to be an .exe file ONLY for the Rhapsody music service. as noted above, it was unnecessary. also - my USB ports are 1.1 and not 2.0, and package stated USB 2.0 was a "minimum requirement" - not true*

How do you delete songs of the sandisk mp3 player the model is m230


Windows XP puts the Sansa drive into MTP mode by default. (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media_Transfer_Protocol )

In order for the Sansa device to be seen as a drive letter, it needs to be in MSC mode.

OK, enough background! On your Sansa device, go to Menu | Settings | USB and select MSC. Once you exit the menu and connect the device to your Windows XP machine it should be recognized as a drive letter.

This method worked for my Sansa M240. Hope this helps!

Window media player is not recognizing my sansa m230


Refresh drivers - connect player to PC. Right-click My Computer & select Manage. Click Device Manager on left pane. Player will show on right pane as USB Mass Storage device or Portable Device.

If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers: right-click the entry with the error & select Uninstall. On top menu, click Action then select Scan For Hardware Changes.

I need to get my computer to recognise the SanDisk Sansa M230 MP3 Player. I DON'T want to download something that will play around with the entire computer. One Driver ONLY> Cam


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..

Sansa M230 not seen in Explorer or Windows Media Player


We had the same problem with Windows XP. We found some help on the Sandisk web site. On the device go to the Settings menu, then USB. We changed from AutoDetect to MSC mode and everything is working again. Our computer saw all of the songs on our computer fine. Some of the old songs on the Sansa didn't show up on the detect list in Windows Media Player, but they were still on the device.
