Sansa View not appearing in My Computer

I just got a Sansa View. I plugged it into my USB port but my computer does nothing. Doesn't even say a new device has been connected, and I can't see the player in My Computer. I've tried searching for new hardware and have formatted the player.

In that case, I'd suggest you to check whether do you have latest version of USB 2.0 installed in your computer or not. Also you can try by connecting the device in different USB port.If still the same, please go ahead and update the latest MTP drivers.

Steps needs to be followed up to update MTP drivers :

1. With the Sansa connected to your computer, open the Safely Remove Hardware icon in the system tray.
2. Select the USB Mass Storage Device.
3. Click the Properties button.
4. Go to the Drivers tab.
5. Click the Update Driver button.
6. Select Yes at this time only, then click Next.
7. Select Install the Software Automatically, then click Next.
8. This should update the MTP Device driver. You may be prompted to restart the computer.

    Hi


    I've got another update about the device is not getting detected.Try connecting the device to the computer and check whether its getting detected in Windows Media Player. If its not getting detected in WMP, then try updating the MTP drivers as given above. If still the same then you have to run the firmware updater for the device. You can get the patch from www.sandisk.com

How do u download new music and delete old music, im having trouble with this PLEEEEASE HELP


When your player is connected to your computer with the USB connector, you can use your computer file browser software to view all files on your player. Your player will appear as Sansa m230 or m240. Follow these steps:
1. Use the USB connector cable provided with your player to connect the USB port on the top of your player to an open USB port on your computer. The player will appear as a Windows Portable Device on your computer.
2. Delete your music files to the player with software tools like Rhapsody, Windows Media Player or Napster Client.

To transfer music from your computer to your player:
1. Use the USB connector cable provided with your player to connect the USB port on your player to an open USB port on your computer. The player will appear as a Windows Portable Device on your computer. (Can't find the USB port on your player? See The Basic Controls section on page 3.)
2. Drag and drop music files to the player from any location on your hard-drive

My pc window can not recognize mp3 player


Hello

Connect your Sansa MP3 player to more than one USB port on your computer. Ensure that your computer USB port is not corrupt or disabled by testing at least two available ports. This is especially useful when you possess no other USB-based equipment.

Inspect your USB ports' status to ensure they are enabled on your computer. Right-click "My Computer" and launch "Properties" to verify the availability of such connections. Select "Device Manager" from the Hardware tab and click the "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" from the list shown. If a red "X" is shown, the USB ports are disabled.

Ensure your computer is updated by clicking "Start" and launching "Windows Update" from the Programs menu. Alternatively, inspect your USB port connectivity through your motherboard BIOS settings. Note that BIOS access and settings varies by mother board manufacturer.

Scan your computer for new hardware changes. From the Device manager, click the "Action" menu and select "Scan for hardware changes" while your Sansa MP3 player is connected. Allow your computer to attempt to find any physical component recently added in the event it failed to previously detect it.

Connect your Sansa player to a different computer. Test the connection on a different system's USB port to verify that the Sansa device's own connection has not been damaged. Inspect the USB ports on the computer in question as well to eliminate the possibility of both systems having problematic USB ports.

Change your Sansa MP3 player's USB plug. Sometimes the head of the plug may lose contact with the appropriate circuits. Obtain a secondary USB port at your local retail store and test it on an updated computer system.

My sanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player will not charge anymore. At least not on the computer I'm on. I have had it hooked up to charge for 2 days now and nothing. Why is this and how can I charge it?


This is direct from the sansa FAQs at http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_clip/faqs 02. Why won’t my Sansa Clip charge when I connect it to my computer? USB Cable
Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable.

Computer in Hibernation mode
Make sure that the computer isn’t entering hibernate or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be on in order to charge your player.

USB Port 2.0
Make sure your player is connected USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).

USB Port location
Try plugging in different USB port (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); sometimes the front USB ports have problem charging up the device.

Battery
Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.

Latest firmware
Make sure to update firmware by downloading and installing the Sansa Firmware Updater.

I hope this helps, and don't forget to rate the answer.

How do I get my Sansa e260 to appear in Windows Media Player (v. 11; Vista)?


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Dell optiplex 110 sys does not find the sansa view player


I have recently connected to a Sansa device. The device had to be powered on before it would be detected as a drive. Also it had a hold feature which suspended any I/O. Alternately, the Dell may not have all the usb ports connected to the motherboard. I suggest you plug the Sansa device into the same usb you were connecting the external drive. Beyond this, more information required. I hope it helps. Good Luck.
