Re: i cant change any of the songs on my mp3!!!
Try it in your realplayer and see if you can add and delete there after you syncronize it, Try that see if it works for you, Hope so, also if you do manage to hook up with usb go into the setting and check and make sure that all options are check that you want to work, If you see that there is a way to let the sanddisk manage music on my sansa or you can do it, If sandisk is managing it, It will not let you add music, so change that and see if that helps ya out, You may also notice that there is another way to connnect in the sandisks options again, I hope that gets you up and saving music, Take Care and Happy Holidays

Not Recognized: Try connecting it to the back of your computer or another computer the back straight
to the motherboard this should be USB 2.0 and see if it will recognize
it as sansa or Drive/removable drive. if it does then download the sansa
and install it. Make sure you disconnect the sansa and connect it when
asked. This will update your sansas firmware and add the Usb Mode. Try
to connect it to your computer at home it should recognize.... link for
download to a flash drive much easier. Make sure USB mode is MSC Recovery Mode may also allow your computer to recognize the sansa lock
your sansa hold in the rec key on the left at the same time push the
menu/power button this will take you to recovery mode then connect to
the computer Start the update software when finished disconnect.... Sync to upload songs to the sansa......Hope this works
Windows xp, Vista, and Windows7 should already have a driver included
for the v-touch. It's possible that if your computer has a compact
flash card reader, that it maybe preventing the v-touch driver from
being correctly installed. Try using the "Safely remove Hardware" to
temporarily remove your cf card reader. Then try plugging in your
v-touch. It should now correctly install the driver and the v-touch
will show up as a new drive. In Windows Device Manager under "Disk
Drives" you should see 2 new devices - "Company PNP Platform OPN USB
Device" and "Company PNP Platform SDC USB Device
1) Go to Settings/USB Mode and change to MSC mode which make it works as a flash drive/memory stick2) In Windows explorer, you should see two drives in My Computer, one for the unit, one for the card slo3) As for a 'normal' PC, you can now just delete any files/songs from your Sansa directories in either drives! (you can also move existing or add new files).note: if your normally use SanDisk Media Converter program or Windows Media Player, you must change the USB mode setting on your Sansa back to 'MTP' before those programs can see your device.
I know you hate to do this,..but reset your sanDisk, first,..if you've done this and it still doesn't allow you to add,..you will need to make a change in your settings....go to USB, then make sure you have selected "Auto Detect".
If you are just using windows explorer (my computer) to access the files on the player you might need to set your players usb mode to "MSC", if it is set to "MTP" then you will need to access the mp3 players files via a music management software like winamp or wmp.
