Ok. I'm Mexican and my English is not so well but I have an solution that I'll like to share.
You have to download this file http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1449
and unzip in the Desk of windows . It's name is "pp5022.mi4"
Open the Notepad program and create a file whit name "sansa.fmt". IMPORTANT Dont save it like "sansa.txt" or "sansa.fmt.txt"
(We don't have to put anything in the notepad file, live it blank) and saved in the windows Desk same as "pp5022.mi4" file.
If you don't know where is notepad program go to "star" then "programs" then "accessories" and you'll find it there.
First step be sure that your sansa is off
then put the lock switch in the position orange (Sansa Locked)
Then press the Microphone bottom and keep holding, at the same press the menu bottom and keep holding too at the same time.
Wait until you are in the Recovery Mode.
Then conect your sansa to the computer.
And it's gonna appear a new window whit a "version.txt" file.
Take the 2 files that you created in the Desk and drag and drop to the sansa. Then unplug your sansa to the pc.
Now turn on the sansa but Unlocked before.
And I hope that your problem have been gone.

In Normal conditions, after plugging in the MP3, amd waiting one or two minutes, the device should be installed automatically by the system. This works in the same way on Vista and on XP. On Windows 98 and Me the device may not work. After the MP3 is installed, you can reach the Sansa under My Computer (Computer). It will be displayed as an external disk named Sansa. If you are using an USB extension or an USB external hub, get rid of it. Try plugging the MP3 to a different USB port. Try unplugging AC charger, and removing laptop batter for ten minutes, sometimes this can fix problems caused by accumulation of electrostatic charges on USB controller. If that does not solve the problem, test a different USB device on the same laptop, and test the MP3 on a different computer. Either one may be faulty. If the problem is the laptop you may fix it by removing and reinstalling USB root hub on hardware devices in Control Panel.

If you are using a USB connector [that connects extra ports to your computer] it sometimes doesnt work... so if possible hook the USB sansa cable to the main ports in the back of the server. It might also work to hook it in, and then go to 'My Computer' and see if it shows up there. Good Luck =]
