Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player

1 Answer

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

Software included states I have "Windows 95 or 98" and it will not install; this ancient machine runs Win ME. Sansa site is ONLY for XP/ Vista. Charges fine, device shows "connected" when charging...but there is NO "F:/" drive in the My Computer folder. Have tried a go-around with the installation disk, Run > D:\ > .exe folder, but same deal - won't install (i.e. can't move tunes TO it). maybe a generic USB driver out there somewhere? any clues?

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*

I am having trouble installing the installation cd sandisk that came with my sansa clip mp3 player. I have windows xp and just installed the sp2 pack, but the cd will still not install. Thanks.


pleae check if the cd includes a driver for won xp- it might not

put in cd manually, browse it using the win xplorer, until u find someting like setup.exe
in the main directory of the cd or in the driver directory, double-click7 execute it.
this may tell u if the driver software on cd supports win xp - else get the right driver here:

Having trouble loading music to sansa using instructions given


It should have come with a software, most mp3 players these days encrypt their files in such a way so that only the included software can install/copy/move any files on the mp3 player, i suggest looking through the packaging to find the installation CD or downloading the driver off the manafacturer's site.

Sansa clip installation


What you need to do is update your Windows Media Player. I believe it has to be WMP10 and higher. Let me know if that works. Oh and you also need at least Windows XP Service Pack 2. so update your windows software

I need a driver for my sandisk sansa clip 2GB MP3 player


Xp should recognize it. Soudls like a problem with XP drivers. Leave the device connected and go t windows update and check the other drivers section. You can also open Media player and check for sync status and it should find the drivers or go to Sandisks web site of course and they should have a driver. It is a basic driver nothing spectacular.

You don't need Vista to install the Sansa Clip. Run the installation CD (or grab the software from Sandisk's website), and plug the player into your computer.

Hi sansa clip 2gb


You might have vista, which is compatible with nothing. Go to the Sandisk website, and get the up-to-date software for Vista. If you have a Mac or Linux, forget it.
