I;ve notice if your computer is not configure properly, windows media player gives you very hard time syncing devices. You also, should check and see what version of windows media player you are using. 11 will sync properly with most devices.

Depending on the Mp3 player you have.... Each player uses different media player to use... the ipod will only work with apple... the zune will only work with zune marketplace... most generic mp3's players will work with windows media player.. If it is a generic mp3 player... iriver .. coby...sony.. toshiba...creative...etc you can use wmp (windows) for your set up.. open windows media player.. connect the mp3 player to it it should recognize it and walk you through it... You can right click on the song and select add to player .. then sync it and you are off and running... hope this helps

Computer doesn't recognize MP3 player -


Check My Computer. If the PC recognises the Sansa player then simply add the songs by dragging the files into the player's icon on My Computer. Sometimes this kick starts the built in software included on the mp3 player.

My sansa mp3 player isn`t recognized by the computer


It may depend on your operating system, but there are known issues in vista. There is also a hotfix from microsoft. This is from the Sansa Website FAQs at http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_clip/faqs

My Sansa player is not recognized by my computer when I connect it.

The most common reason for this problem is not having the latest Windows Media Player installed, or having a Windows OS version that is not supported by the Sansa player.

The Sansa players support Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista and above. If your operating system version is supported by the Sansa player:

SOLUTION 1 – Download and install the latest Windows Media Player

SOLUTION 2 – If that didn’t help, and you are running Windows Vista, apply the following hotfix - KB940199

SOLUTION 3 – If that didn’t help, download and Install the MTP Porting Kit (click here)

SOLUTION 4 – If that didn’t help, try connecting the device to the PC using MSC mode

On the Clip: Go to Settings > USB mode & choose MSC

I hope this helps and please don't forget to rate my answer.

My zen doesnt want to connect


I think I found my answer. With my player connected I went to Control Panel- System- Hardware- Device Manager and under Portable Devices removed my Zen Player. I then went back to Control Panel- Add Hardware- and let the Add Hardware Wizard add my player back.
My Zen Micro Photo now connects to computer and I can charge the battery with no problem.

All my songs got deleted while i tried to add more


I've run across this as well and it's actually a setting in Windows Media Player. The only way I've found to correct it (since I couldn't find it in the advanced options) was to start Windows Media Player and go to the sync page. Then connect the player to the computer. When Media Player recognizes the device it will pop up a screen (make sure you're in the sync page first) that says Windows Media Player - Device Setup. There will be two options, 1 to leave existing files and sync to remaining space and 2 to delete files before sync. Choose the first option to leave existing files and then click next and then finish. You should be able to sync new songs to the player now without it deleting the existing songs that are already on there.

Getting out of recovery mode


I have the sleek photo and mine bugged out yesterday. It would go to the splash screen and then go blank and just sit there. Nothing would respond. I tried reset, reboot and other things too. My pc also would not recognize the player. To make a long story short, I tried other suggestions I found on the web. They didn't work and my player would now only go to a garbled splash screen and go right to the recovery screen.


I had the new firmware, but I couldn't use it because the pc wouldn't detect the goofy player. Then I ran across a site that mentioned that Windows Media Player can cause player recognition problems. I removed both WMP (mine was 11) and WMP runtime using the add/remove programs option on the control panel. I restarted the pc and BAM! the player was now recognized. I ran the new firmware application and the player works fine now. The key for me was getting rid of WMP and the WMP runtime.
