Re: Sansa clip; Does not appear on icons

I'm not sure what you mean because im not very familiar with your mp3 player but maybe try throwing music on by going: Computer, and then there should be a file that says "Sansa bla bla bla"
Then go to the file where your music is and drag your songs in to the music folder in your "sansa" folder.
Otherwise try [re]installing the Sansa Media Converter which you indefinetly need.

Hope this helped.

Can i transfer music from my sansa clip to my pc?

Yes, I've just had to do this after formatting my hard drive. It's simply the reverse of putting music onto your clip.

1. Make sure you have your clip to show up in My Computer
2. Open up My Computer
3. Double Click the Sansa Clip icon
4. Go to the folder where your music is stored and open it
5. When you have all your music files on the clip in front of you, simply copy an idividual file by right clicking it and choosing COPY from the menu, then navigate to where you want yo put this file and right click and PASTE. Alternatively, use drag and drop by having your source (clip) window open and your destination window (My Music etc.) open side by side.

Sansa 1 gb

On your sansa, go to "Settings" then System Settings" then "USB Mode," then change it to MSC, if that does not work, try the other modes, just in case.
Hope this helps!

Sansa Clip does not show up on computer

I had the same problem all you've got to do is first turn on the sansa clip.Then go to settings. After that scroll down to USB mode (second from bottom) then it woul probably say auto detect. Scroll down to MSC then hit enter. If that doesn't work try MTP mode.

The sansa player icon doesn't appear

I had the same problem and someone recommended downloading window media play version 11. Apparently the lower versions of media player do not have the correct driver. My sansa clip works on my Lenovo laptop and it has windows media play version 10. So I think vresion 10 or higher will work. Hope this helps.

Getting voice clips to my computer

Double click the My Computer icon when your Sansa clip is connected, and open the "Record" folder; then click on the FM or Voice recorder, as appropriate. Or, open in Windows Media Player library.
