    Same problem with my E250R

  • gpcohen Dec 05, 2007

    Sandisk support provided me with a link below to the latest Media Converter which solved my problem. No need to worry about modes. BTW, my c240 doesn't have a serial number.

Ok, after much gnashing of teeth, it turns out my R and many folks v2 players need the Media Converter V2 software.

The back of your player has the model number if it has a v2 after it you probably need the v2 of the converter software.

I can't confirm it, but I think the big clue is that in your settings on the player, you will not have the USB Mode in the Settings menu, just a "Mode" option.

I don't know where to officially get the v2 of the converter software, but here is a link to it I found on a forum, clamWinAV said it was virus free, but obviously who knows, but I ran it on my machine and it sees my player just fine:

    Actually that is probably not the solution for the C200 series, but it might not hurt to give it a try and see what happens.

What extra device do i need to transfer photo`s to my sansa?

first off you need a converter program from here
then install that then
  1. Hook up your Sansa MP3 player to your computer with the USB cord. This cord has one flat end that inserts right into the bottom slot of the player. The other squarish end goes into your computer's USB port.
  2. Choose "Sansa Media Converter" from the options that pop up automatically when you complete the connection to your player. Find media that you want to convert to your MP3 player by clicking on the "Add Media" button in the converter. Once you have the media you want in the box, click "Convert" to convert the media and download it to your player
hope this helps a bit
