Re: computer say's its not connected

What i would recommend you to do is to uninstall the device and reinstall it back...tou uninstall it...assuming that you are running windows on start, right click on my computer1.gif and go to should have your system properties open then click under hardware1.gif then device manager...look for the sansa usually located under portable device..if its not showing there i would recommend you to look for under disk drives1.gif and see if its there..right click on the device and click on uninstall...after you unintall it unplug your device from the computer and check to usb has to be under MTP mode or auto....after you check the mode open up your windows media1.gif player click on tools, options and click under privacy...clear the history and caches...after you finish you can plug the device on the back of the computer not the front then windows should recongnize it and it should work properly..if that doesnt solve the problems upgrade your windows media player to 11 even though you have done that already..let me know the outcome...

Dropped two days ago, seemed fine. all of a sudden started freaking out. screen looks like TV static, then freezes on start up screen.


I suggest you to backup all the songs in the Walkman Player to the Computer and Format the Player.

Connect the Player to the Computer to charge it until FULL message is displayed.

Reset the Walkman Player. To reset it by pressing the RESET button with a small pin or similar object. You can also Format the Player if the Format option is available by accessing the Home Menu.

To Format the Player; press and hold the BACK/HOME button, select Settings-->Common Settings-->Format-->YES.

WARNING: There is a risk of data loss. If the memory is formatted, all files including the Operation Guide (If applicable to your model) stored in the player will be deleted. Be sure to verify the files stored in memory prior to formatting and export necessary files to the hard disk of your computer or other device.

Once the Format completes, reset the Player by pressing the Reset button located at the bottom of the Player using a sharp pointed object. Now you can transfer the required songs and files to the Player using the supplied Software or by dragging and dropping the songs through Windows Explorer. This will resolve the issue.

Good Luck!

If the player is new out of the box, it may need charging first. Connect the supplied USB cabe to the player and then connect the cable into the computer's USB port (boot up the computer first) and let it charge for approx. 6 hours.
The player should now work.

How to charge the battery

if you turn the e100 on, make sure the computer registers that it is connected, and you should see somthing on the screen of the e100 that shows it is connected and charging. It should charge both on and off, and it will charge if the computer is in 'sleep' mode but will not charge if the computer is off

Zune Auto Reboot

Try this: 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.

Archos 604 wifi usb connection problem...

Okay, I just started reading your problem and started freaking out because it was happening to me and I suddenly thought that I would have to replace it. But luckily, my only problem was that I needed to prop-up my archos while it was plugged in. I would think that somewhere down the line, me and you have both knocked something loose in the connector. Luck to you, cheers.

Wont go past starting screen PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted. You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool. - Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds) - Slide the hold switch into "hold" position. - Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer. Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted. FYI, if you are using music from Limewire or other P2P sites, they are to blame. They are usually poorly encoded and cause the device to freak out. Best of Luck.
