Question about SanDisk Sansa View 8GB MP3 Player - Black
Sansa works fine on another computer. When changed to my Dell, it does not show up at all. No usb storage divice is listed. Tried trouble shooting with the help file, by uninstalling the usb drivers, using safe mode. still no luck. Meanwhile, the Dell sys finds my 60gig extenal HD just fine, even if I disconnect, and reconnect it....... Any ideas?
Well, all i had to do was turn my view on and it booted up, also popped up on the comp no problem. hope this helps

I have almost read hundreds of topics regarding with the sansa view and on a dell computer, it will not recognize the device... i also have talked with the reps at sandisk and they have no explanation as to why the view is not detected on a dell computer. I think it has to do something with the dell computer will contact dell and see what answer they can provide. BTW im running on Vista SP1 , Optiplex 758 and running on a 512mb. :D

I have recently connected to a Sansa device. The device had to be powered on before it would be detected as a drive. Also it had a hold feature which suspended any I/O. Alternately, the Dell may not have all the usb ports connected to the motherboard. I suggest you plug the Sansa device into the same usb you were connecting the external drive. Beyond this, more information required. I hope it helps. Good Luck.
