    When I plug in my MP3 I'm told the computer recognizes New Hardware Installed. Then a few seconds later I get "There is a problem installing Hardware. The device may not work properly." What can I do?

    I was able to connect to my Sansa m250 and transferred some musics. When I tried to add more music, my PC and laptop both didn't recognize the device anymore. I was reading the answer saying go to Menu select USB, etc. Where could I find that menu? Thanks.

    I am also unable to get Win XP to recognize my Sansa m250. I tried: Changing the Sansa setting from "autodetect" to "MSC" and it still does not

    see it.



    The "reset all" on the Sansa but it still does not see it.



    Un-installing and reinstalling the USB drivers but it still cannot see it.



    The Sansa itself does display "USB Detected" & "MSC". I'm all out of things to try. Very strange because up until recently it would always see it.

    I am also having the exact same problem on my other machine running

    W98SE. ( I have installed the appropriate USB drivers for W98SE ).

    This was also working up until recently. Based on this I am wondering if

    perhaps the Sansa could be defective? I don't have any other USB devices

    to test my theory out.

    Hope this helps somebody.

    I am having the same problem on two different machines, one running Win XP and the other one is running W98SE. It was recognized on both machines until recently. It plays music files, records & the FM radio work

    perfectly, just isn't recognized on either machine.



    Steps taken for the Win XP machine:

    1) Changing setting on the Sansa from "Auto-detect" to "MSC".

    2) Un-installing & reinstalling the USB drivers.

    3) Tried the "reset all" on the Sansa.



    Sansa does display "USB Connected" & "MSC" when plugged in.



    Since both machines do not recognize it I am wondering if perhaps the Sansa m250 is faulty, but I don't have any other USB devices to test this

    thoery.

Try going to menu, then settings, then USB and then select MSC instead of the auto select. Hope this helps.

I can't get my computer to recognize my sanddisk sansa fuse mp3 player.


you need to install windows media player 11 or above. Sometimes you have to uninstall your USB drivers from the computer then reboot. Windows will reinstall them fresh. sometimes the USB drivers get funny. It does help. I just hope your USB controller isnt going bad.

My computer does not recognize Sansa Fuze


Hi there,

On your computer, Go to Windows Task Manager or Control Panel. Find the Device Manager. There should be a list called Plug-N-Play Devices.

Find the one that should have the driver details of your SanDisk Sansa Fuze Digital Media Player.
Right click on it and select Uninstall.

Now plug in your MP3 Player again to the computer. This time your computer should detect that your MP3 player is connected and will install the drivers for the MP3 player again.

Hope I was of assistance to you,

Cheers :)

Sansa clip code 10 error


The solution for a Code 10 error is always to unplug the mp3 player from the computer, uninstall all software related to the hardware (in this case, uninstall all Sansa-related software), restart your computer, reinstall all software from the installation CD (you can also get it from Sandisk's website if you have lost the CD), restart the computer one more time, and THEN replug the mp3 player.

There MIGHT be an easier way - you can try running the Sansa Recovery Tool - but Code 10 is almost universally an uninstall/reinstall situation.

USB not getting recognized


Sansa c200 series – Computer/OS Not Recognizing
Connect the device to the PC in MSC Mode
View/c200: Turn on then press and hold the rewind button while plugging to the PC
If that fails, unplug the Sansa from the computer. Uninstall all the Sansa software in the add/remove programs section of Control Panel. Reinstall the clean version of the software from Sandisk’s website – make sure you get the files for the c200 series. Then replug the Sansa and try again. The root of the problem is that Sansa has one set of drivers and Windows has another. If you plug the mp3 player into the computer before installing the Sansa drivers, the Windows drivers will trump the Sansa’s.
Here is a helpful link from Sandisk on the problem with extra information on Vista operating systems:
