Question about SanDisk Sansa View 8GB MP3 Player - Black
I received a Sandisk Sansa View 8GB for Christmas and tried to connect it to my Dell Inspiron laptop (XP SP2). It would not connect to the laptop. I connected with the USB cable and the PC indicated a new MTP device was attached and then indicated that a problem has occurred during installation and your device may not work properly. The Sansa View device was not recognized and did not appear in My Computer.
I jsut purchased an 8GB sansa view mp3 and I downloaded it like I was suppose to and it does not work in Rhapsody at all, also in the windows media player it shows that the device was installed correctly but it still doesn't work and I still can't sync my songs to it. The sansa icon won't even show up

What I have to do to connect my sansa view to my pc is...
step 1 - power up both.
step 2 - connect data cable to sansa.
step 3 - slide the lock button to lock the sansa.
step 4 - while holding the left direction on the thumbwheel count to 10 or 11.
step 5 - plug USB cable into computer.
may need to download software first but most newer computers automatically downloads drive when unit is connected. other than that you should be good to go.

There seems to be a problem when connecting the sansa view to a dell computer when the player is set to MTP. I suggest that you use the MSC mode when using the sansa view.

Changing MTP to MSC fixed it. Thanks a million.

Make sure to remove the MicroSD card and format separately.
Format and restore to factory settings (without MicroSD card)
The Sansa View will be seen by XP and Vista. If you have a music service, do not place any music on the MicroSD card.
Place music service files on the Sansa internal memory. As the days comes close to renew, any music service mp3's placed on the external MicroSD ard, will not renew. A software bug Sansdisk must fix.
