Sandisk does not provide a driver for anything older than Windows XP. You cannot charge the player over anything but a USB 2.0 connection (older computers don't have these). For more info, check here: http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board/message?board.id=clip&message.id=1348

To my knowledge, the only way to charge an mp3 on a computer is with a USB drive, so if the computer is so old it doesn't have USB ports, then you may want to look into buying a new computer or asking a friend to borrow theirs.

How to recharge ematic esport clip using USB cable


You can charge it connected to your computer or buy an adapter that you can plug in the outlet for an mp3 player.
It comes with a USB to recharge on PC, you cannot recharge in iPod stand. I believe iPod has the market on this.

I just got the mp3 player. ive been charging it but when i disconnect it from my computer it shuts off and wont turn back on. HELP!


Some older computers that have USB ports that limit the output to 5V @ .5 amp current. Depending on your MP3 player, it may not be sufficient to charge the player. This was the spec back then. Since then, new USB specs call for 5V @ 1.0 amp current - a two fold increase in current.

You may have better luck connecting to a powered USB hub instead. If you're only looking to charge the MP3 player, you don't even need to connect it to the computer. The powered hub gets powered by connecting the ac adapter / power supply to a wall outlet - instead from of the computer's power supply via mother board.

The above assumes there is a good, rechargeable battery; a functioning charger & USB port in the MP3 player and of course, a working USB cable. If any of the above is faulty, you'll never get the MP3 Player to accept a charge. You should try different computers, cables and ports if possible.

Good luck!

MP3 player won't recharge


It could be possible that the connection on the mp3 player is damaged, which would explain the connect/deconnect sounds and the recharge problems.

SanDisk, 2 GB Sansa mp3 player won't charge


You MAY have a power glich. In which case, hold the power/menu botton down for 20 seconds or more, then connect it to the computer.It's best if you use a USB input that's NOT part of a Multi-USB base, as those DO cause power gliches.
