Something installed on your computer doesn't have the drivers installed so it can run. Click on Start, Control Panel, Device Manager,(look in the upper left corner for this). You should have a list of all hardware installed for your computer. In this list should be an, "Unknown Device". Double click on the device, Click on the Driver Tab at the top of the new screen, then click on disable.
This will not install the drivers, but will keep the annoying popup away for good. If you find out which device isn't installed, you can go back to this page and click on update driver. Or just leave it alone. If you don't have anything noticeably not working, like sound, it probably isn't necessary. Hope this fixes the problem...

Computer cant open sansa clip

Make sure the lock switch isn't engaged.
Double-click My Computer, and see if there is a Sansa icon (some computers will only show it as a removable drive or an MTP device).

If the computer is not recognizing the player:
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.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).

Could not detect ethernet card or device

hi there what you can do is 1 of 2 things first you can shut down the computer and remove the card and then turn on the pc and let it fully boot then normally turn off the pc then reinsert the card and see if the new hardware found comes up on restart and installs the drivers for you. or you can go to device manager and do a right click on your network adapter and select scan for hardware change and see if it can find it that way ok i hope this helps please try to keep me posted

Cannot install the device

With regards to this issue, I would suggest you to download windows update since samsung MTP devices are generic driver loaded by microsoft. Then after you have downloaded the windows update press and hold the play button of your device while you are connecting it to your computer, if this is successful a Found new hardware message will pop up on your screen then just follow the on screen instruction on how to install your device. Hope this helps. PEACE!
