Hello,

Scroll on next page to get to Support information for Sansa e200 series:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4487


See the link Sansa player not recognized by the computer:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/42
and follow up the instructions.
1. Use the original cable and try more USB ports.
2. Let the player charge, connecting the player directly to the computer,
preferred at the back side of the computer.
3. Check the device manager in the computer management for the player running with a functional driver without "yellow" marks, question mark or note of exclamation.

When connecting a brand new player as mentioned in the top page, scroll on the page to:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/42#brandnew
Read the information and setup the USB connection as described on the page.

Need more help ? Just post a comment.

How do I get the downloaded music from my computer into the clip?


You have 2 ways to transfer your songs from your computer to your sansa clip:
1. Plug sansa clip to computer, double click on "Sansa Clip ...GB", double click on "Internal Memory", you will see the file "Music", copy your songs and paste them into Music file of the device.
2. Using Windows Media Player: open windows media player, plug sansa clip into computer, click on Sync tab, select songs that you want to sync, drag and drop song selected into "Sync list" on the right side of the windows media player (you should update wmp11), then click on button Start Sync.

Good luck

Wont put songs on


I would wait for the writing message to go away before disconnecting the player - this is the standard message it will give you when you are transferring songs to the player. If it still says writing after 5 minutes (this is assuming you are not trying to load more than 20 songs at once), then you might have a real problem.

Make sure the files you are trying to load do not have DRM encryption on them, and also make sure they are in mp3 or wma format.

If you have Windows Media Player 11:
Quick Method 1 - 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.
Quick Method 2 - 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

Uploading songs


This player is not compatible with iTunes
Ripped from CD - acquire license by going into songs' Properties and clicking on license or digital rights tab; or try and re-sync

There could be something else wrong with player for which the above methods fail. In this casE:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, 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.
