All right guys, let me teach you a trick involving this MP3. While it is off turn hold on and hold the back button on the face. (Left button of the square) While holding it plug it in and Vista or any other computer will recognize it as a removable drive like a flash drive so to speak. From there make sure it says its connected on the Sansa and then drag and drop what you like in the recommended place. ^_^ Have fun!

I had the same problem. I just unplugged it and plugged it back in and it worked.

    First I would like to say that it was somewhat helpful. However, your way did not work. Instead I just held the "back" button only, not turning on the hold button, and WALLA it worked like a charm. Instantly!!! Good luck guys!

Sansa Driver problem

No need to reinstall XP. Sandisk's website suggests doing the firmware upgrade instead. If the firmware upgrade won't take, then try to force recognition:

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, 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

The media device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected

Make sure you're not using the media with another program while you attempt to copy/sync it to your device.

Pretty late response, but meh.
