Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Driver issues... When I connect to my desktop (Windows XP), I have no problems transferring files. When I connect to my laptop (Vista), it doesn't seem to recognize my player. If I go into "device manager," the sansa shows up, but when I click it, I get the following message: "This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1) To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver." When I click Reinstall Driver, I get this message: "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it. MTP Device This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1) If you know the manufacturer of your device, you can visit its website and check the support section for driver software." Unfortunately, no driver software seems to be available on Sandisk's website. Any ideas for me? windows vista won't install my software that came with sansa e260R called Best Buy and was assured by the "geek squad" rep. that all I had to do was go to thier website to download....can anyone tell me where it is there??? I appear to be too dumb to find it or it's not

Re: Driver issues...

Hey I dont know if this will fix the issue with your player working in Vistas but it fixed mine so give it a try. First you have to open the BestBuy Rhapsody player. Once its open go up to the tools tab and select "preferences." Once the menu pops up select "devices" on the left hand side of the window. Once you click on that look on the right hand side of the screen and press the "Add a New Device" button. After that you should get a prompt to download an update for the device and then hopefully your device will be working. Good luck!

Windows xp does not recognize my ematic 8 pro series tablet. Do i need drivers?


What version of Windows XP are you running? Your best bet is to have Windows XP Service Pack 3.

The issue is that the tablet will appear in Windows as a "storage device". The problem is that Windows XP will likely require a driver to understand that your tablet is a memory storage device.

It appears you have two options:

1. upgrade to Windows XP Service Pack 3, reboot the computer and then connect the tablet and see if the OS can recognize your device

2. remove the SD memory card from the tablet and, using a SD card reader on your PC (which you may need to purchase), insert the SD card into the card reader and use this method to transfer the files to the card. Return the card to your tablet.

It appears that Windows Vista, 7 and 8 will recognize your tablet automatically.

Pls help!! My samsung yp k-3 does not recognize by the vista

What you need to do is first connect your mp3 player to a computer that is running xp. This way we can figure out if it is the mp3 player or windows vista. If it is windows vista try and go to the manufactures website and see if they have a driver for windows vista. That is all I can really think of right now

Just drag files from Windows Explorer to device make sure that when you open up device that there are the categories: music, pictures, video, playlist. Drag video to video on device, drag ebooks to playlist. Also, confirm this with Coby Media Manager.

Problems with Vista and video transfer

First, download the latest version of the GoGear software on the Philips website (compat with Vista).

Second, go to the Microsoft website and enter ArcSoft Media Converter in the search box to get addl software that will make it compat with Vista.

Third, check and see if the same file has the same DRM license on both computer. SomeGoGear's only read files with DRM encryption; others only read files without it. Make sure the licesnsing is the same on both computers - the Windows Media Player with Vista may or may not have this feature (if it doesn't get a PlaysFor Sure program for vista on the Microsoft website).

Transfering music using windows 2000

You need to have Windows Media Player version 10 or higher to transfer files to an MP3 device.

You can drag and drop files manually from My Computer as well.

Best of Luck.
