I called sandisk. You have to have service pack 2 on your windows XP and you have to have Windows Media Player version 10 or 11. One one of my laptops I had version 9 and it wouldn't work, I changed laptops and it works just fine.

If i plug my player to pc it shows charging and full charge but if i disconnect it will appear lowbat in the screen. and my pc doesn't dettect my unit


Try turning off the player and then back on again. The battery status should update and show full charge. Restart your PC and reconnect the player and it should appear again.
Simply pulling out the USB cable can cause a communication error, so it's always best to use the 'Eject USB device' option. When you want to disconnect, the player will be listed as an external hard drive when you open up 'My Computer', right click on the drive and select 'Eject'.

My Sansa Clip won't turn on even thought the battery is full.


Unfortunately there was a manufacturing flaw with many Sansa Clips which caused one of the battery leads to detach from the battery. A symptom of this is that the Clip will turn on and charge when connected to an external power source, such as USB or an AC adapter, but will not actually turn on using the internal power source (eg, the battery).

If your Clip is still under warranty, you should return it for a refund or an exchange.

Is there driver/ software for Win ME for the Sansa Clip mp3?


a friend told me that if the device shows as"connected" when hooked up (it does) AND the battery charges correctly (it does), then (a)the USB connection had enough juice; and (b) the PC recognizes it - i just had to FIND it. device manager/ MyComputer: nada; same for ANY file/ folder with "sansa" or "sandisk." working thru WMP (Windows Media Player), however, I discovered that drive E - for a portable hard drive, NOT currently connected via USB - was STILL showing up in the "Copy to CD or device" field. sure enough, it was the SanDisk clip player (even though it was NOT under the "Recognized Portable Devices" subsection). without using the installation disk at all, it downloaded tunes just fine. *note: the installation disk seemed to be an .exe file ONLY for the Rhapsody music service. as noted above, it was unnecessary. also - my USB ports are 1.1 and not 2.0, and package stated USB 2.0 was a "minimum requirement" - not true*

Sandisk Sansa Clip 2GB not detected by XP SP2


Change the USB Mode to auto-detect and see if you get better results. If that fails, switch entirely to MTP mode.

Charging SanDisk Sansa


Go ahead and do this, in case the DB is corrupted:
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
