I have tried to load songs onto this today. I have loaded up the Media Studio but when I connect the USB cable across to the player it does nto detect a device at all, therfore I have been unable to put any music on it so far. And my USB port is not broken, and I know the computer responds to this because it asks me to syncronise the files to Media Player, before telling me nothing is detected.
Is there a reason for this? The insturction guide was quite small and rather unhelpful in explaining this in any real depth, so some advice would be much appreciated :)
I just bought a new mp3 player yesterday and when i connect it to my
usb port it will charge but it wont reconnect to the computer even
after it is fully charged. I checked all my usb ports and they all work
properly. I've tried turning it on when i plug it in. I sent an email
to the company and am still waiting to hear back from them.and same here wot has happended. i rang the company since the year 3000
OK I may be barking up a tall tree here. But, I had a samsung for about a day, then I went and got a sandisk. But, I seem to remember having some similar problems. I think I upgraded my windows media player, as well as I had to get some kind of media file or something like that from Microsoft. I just know that the first player I got did nothing. then the second player was the same deal, but someone told me to upgrade and when I went to microsoft, part of the upgrade included the file I am mentioning.

I know you hate to do this,..but reset your sanDisk, first,..if you've done this and it still doesn't allow you to add,..you will need to make a change in your settings....go to USB, then make sure you have selected "Auto Detect".
MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Windows XP SP1
Windows Media Player 10
Intel Pentium class PC or higher
USB 2.0 port required for hi-speed transfer
CONNECTING AND TRANSFERRING
Connect to your Computer
1. Connect the small USB Cable Connector to the USB port on your computer, and then plug the larger
Cable Dock Connector in to your Sansa c200 port.
2. Once connected to computer, it should be detected by the operating system automatically and is
shown as an additional drive called “Sansa c200”.
SANSA MEDIA CONVERTER
You will need to use Sansa Media Converter to transfer photos to your Sansa c200. Insert your SanDisk
CD and select Sansa Media Converter to install it to your PC. Then you can load your personal photos
onto your Sansa c200 by using Sansa Media Converter.
To transfer music to your Sansa c200:
1. Connect Sansa c200 to the computer.
2. Drag and drop files from your computer to Sansa c200 by using a variety of music software
programs to transfer/synchronize your files.
3. In MTP mode as long as the files are WMA or MP3, they can be dragged into the Media folder.
Otherwise, they can be dragged into the Data folder (these files will not appear on the player).
4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.
Go into WMP and connect the USB cable to your computer and player. Press the M button on the side til the screen reads "MTP." The device set-up wizard should start. Then hit the "sync" menu and drag and drop songs onto your sync list
Does your device show up as a separate device in windows explorer? If so you may drag and drop files directly onto it.
Alternatively you can download alternative free media players like winamp and rhapsody which do the same job as media player.
If your device does not show up in windows explorer then you may have a usb problem on your Samsung media player. This is most likely to be a hardware fault which I don't know a free/cheap solution to.
