I had the same problem and someone recommended downloading window media play version 11. Apparently the lower versions of media player do not have the correct driver. My sansa clip works on my Lenovo laptop and it has windows media play version 10. So I think vresion 10 or higher will work. Hope this helps.

Sansa e280


Hello,

Like most players, the device should contain 3 folders with the name
Music
Photo
Video.
Media is on the player, each type has its their specific folder name (should be int the matching location).
If deleted, make new folder names Music, Photo and Video.

When having problems with making a connection to the computer:
>
Having a version 1 player, the e280 (written on the backside):
1. On your Sansa player, press and hold the Power/Menu button for 15 seconds to turn the device completely off.
2. Slide the Hold switch so the orange portion shows.
3. On your PC, double-click My Computer (on MAC, open the desktop screen)
4. On your Sansa player, press and hold the REC button while connecting it to the PC.
5. Release the REC button when a 16MB-FORMAT drive partition appears under My Computer (on MAC, on the desktop screen)
>
Having a version 2 player, the e280v2 (written on the backside):
For step 1, 2, 3 and 5 follow the same steps as for version 1.
Only for step 4:
4. Press and hold the ( |<< ) button on your player, while connecting to the PC.

Sansa icon will not appear in source window


There are two connection settings in USB: MTP and MSC. For some reason MTP is the default, but it doesn't connect properly on all computers. Select MSC and plug the player in again, the computer will recognize sansa e250 but not show the driver just yet. It is installing recognition software (just basic drivers - nothing heavy) and it doesnt tell you what its doing until its complete. WAIT FOR IT. Once it is complete you will see both the sansa e250 and the removable memory slot in your "my computer" now you're good to go.
