Hi there, I've posted this incase you really need to get to the files on your mp3. This might hold you over till the problem is completely fixed...
Plug the mp3 in via a usb cord. Close any menu/window that comes up (if any, since it doesn't recognise it). Click "start", then in the window that opens click "my computer"...a window will come up with all the devices connected to your compute, for instance disc (c) is usually the harddrive. Check all the disc one at a time by double clicking on them. when you find folders in a disc and they contain your music, vids, pics etc then you've found your memory card on the mp3 and you will be able to copy/cut/delete any items there u wish.

SOURCE: My computer isn't detecting my Sansa mp3 player anymore.

First, make sure the lock switch isn't engaged.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + (or Record) button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + (or Record) button in. Keep holding the volume + (or Record) 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.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start --> Control Panel-->System--> Hardware--> Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).

What i would recommend you to do is to uninstall the device and reinstall it back...to uninstall it...assuming that you are running windows xp...click on start, right click on my computer and go to properties..you should have your system properties open then click under hardware then device manager...look for the sansa device..it usually located under portable device..if its not showing there i would recommend you to look for under disk drives and see if its there..right click on the device and click on uninstall...after you unintall it unplug your device from the computer....Then follow this link below to download the porting kit...http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A2E73160-E862-4F19-BB26-C0CAFE798955&displaylang=en .Then check the mode of yuor device to make sure it sunder MTP not msc...To check the mode go under menu, settings and choose usb mode...After you check the mode open up your windows media 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..and try to reconnect your device..make sure you have it connected on the back USB>>>

And if that doesnt work try to obtain the driver for your sandisk device go to http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/index.asp and find the driver for your device..and then connecct the device on the back of your computer...it should work properly..if you are still having any problems..let me know..i would be more than happy to assist you..
Please rate accordingly
Thank you

Can't turn on my mp3 player. I have tried to hold the volume buttom but it does not turn on at all.


what type of mp3 player ?

Charge your MP3 player.

The battery might just be dead, in which case letting it charge for a few hours corrects the problem.


Plug the USB data cable into the USB port on the MP3 player and insert the other end into one of the USB ports on your computer.


In a moment, the computer states that it has detected the removable device.

Sometimes the MP3 player needs to update itself, and it can only do so while connected to a computer.


When the MP3 player detects the computer, it attempts to connect to the Internet and retrieve any system updates available for the device.

Replace the battery.


The battery is usually the first part of the MP3 player to go (especially after excessive use). Although you can manually change the battery on most MP3 players, you need to send your


Apple products (iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Touch, iPhone) into the company so they can change the battery for you.


Purchase a new MP3 player.

If your MP3 player has received any sort ofwater damage, it is not going to turn on at all and there is nothing you can do to fix the issue.


hope this helps

Vivitar mp3 player isn't recognized by computer


If the MP3 player is not charging through the USB cable when connected to the computer and the computer cannot detect the MPe player then you could have a faulty USB cable. Try a different USB cable.

I just got my Coby Mp3, and i plugged the USB into my computer and the autoplay screen that is supposed to come on my computer, hasnt.


Does you computer detect a new device when you plugged the Coby MP3 player?
If Coby MP3 player has cd driver, better to install it to your pc. Some computer/laptop doesn't detect autoplay when new USB device plug-in

Not detected by computer


Try to plug it to other usb ports on your computer. If it still not being detected, try to restart the computer then plug it back.

If it still does not work, plug the mp3 player to other computer just to test if this is a usb port problem.

I am having problems adding music to my sansa mp3 player i plug my mp3 player into the computer a pc and it doesnt come up as it being in the computer


Hi there!

I can understand your issue. When you say having difficulty in adding the music in your player and the device is hooked up. Did you check whether the device is detected in the computer or not.

If the device is detected then go ahead and open the windows media player and add the music into it.

NOTE : Make sure the device should be in MTP mode, inorder to get the device detected in computer..
Please revert for further clarification..

My computer isn't detecting my Sansa mp3 player anymore.


check for up dates to the software for your mp3 and also make sure you have the right software for the make and model of the computer meaning is it a xp, vista or windows 98 .

windows xp should detect new hardware auotmatically. you could delete the software and remove the hard ware for your mp-3 player and try to reinstall it.
