Re: my windows vista pc cannot find a driver for my...

When i reinstalled my laptop i connected my mp3 player to it straight away and it installed the drivers for it and works fine now.

i think this problem may be due possibly to another application or unecessary vista updates ... i only ever install important ones now and not recommended.

Windows VISTA and it is sa9200/17

The verison of the Device Manager on the installation CD is not compatible with Vista. Grab the compatible version from and enter in your model number SA9200/17 - on the next page click on "/17" instead of "/17B" -
on the next page, click on software and drivers; on the next page click on "Device/Firmware Manager" - this version is compatible with Vista

Connection to pc

Plug it in on your computer running Windows Vista to see if the computer detects it. If not try this:

Refer to the product vendor if it's compatible with Windows Vista. If it isn't, you can configure the compatibility wizard for older drivers.

How to get my mp3 to go to zune

Not vista compat - big issue - lawsuits pending

Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged

Make sure the OS is compatible

Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
