    My sansa clip used to be recognized on my computer but now it does not show up when I plug it in. I put it in a friends computer and it works fine. I do not have the disk and can not find a place to download a driver. Please help, i need my tunes.

Heres something that worked for me....when I first got my e280 it worked fine then one day it just stopped.. After dealing with sansa customer support several times without any luck and trying everything else I could find in various forums, I came up with something that works for me....1st, if you are running vista, the device has to be turned of when you plug it in. If that does'nt work, try putting your sansa in lock mode...with it turned off plug it in to your pc and hit the power button until it turns off the push it again until it comes back on I did this several times and It worked and it continues to work....Good Luck.

PC does not recognise my Zen Xtra


Connection Problems:
Make sure you have media player 11
If you can, the best test is to try your player with another PC, to see if you still have the problem. This localises whether the problem is with the PC (most likely the USB) or the player. See the link below (search on "connection problems") for a lot more troubleshooting on this.
Download recovery tool off creative's website.
go to my computer > click on hardware tab >
click on device manager button > in the is next screen on the bottom should have>>universal serial bus controllers
(write these down just in case it cant find them)
right click on them and uninstall
reboot let windows reinstall them

Also told Microsoft hotfix causes this problem try uninstalling the last hotfix
If that doesn't fix it try the USB cable
good luck

Player isnt connected to computer


Make sure you are running Windows XP & Windows Media Player 10.

If you have already rolled back from Media Player 11 to 10, make sure you also uninstall Media Player 11 Runtime fro the add/remove programs list.

Cannot install the device


With regards to this issue, I would suggest you to download windows update since samsung MTP devices are generic driver loaded by microsoft. Then after you have downloaded the windows update press and hold the play button of your device while you are connecting it to your computer, if this is successful a Found new hardware message will pop up on your screen then just follow the on screen instruction on how to install your device. Hope this helps. PEACE!
