Question about SanDisk Sansa View 8GB MP3 Player - Black

1 Answer

SANSA IS there any way I can help you with the sansa, I know they won't work on most 98 machines, also does any other USB device work on the back port? If the answer is no, then you probably have a faulty USB port.

Here's my problem, the delay. The delay between when I push a button, usually to skip to another track, and the time it takes for the view to recognize that I pushed a button. I know you first have to push a button or scroll the wheel to get it ready to accept a command, but usually when the lights come on, the screen is on the last song, stuck there. Many times it's showing 2 songs back, just frozen. Then I have to wait until it goes dark again, and hope that when I push something again, it has caught up. This should be a fairly simple software upgrade. BTW, I do have the latest upgrade installed. Any help is appreciated, as this is very, very, very, frustrating.


Cheers,

Scott

My computer cant recognize SanDisk sansa clip+ 4GB, where can i download drivers???


There are no particular drivers for any USB devices . They are all Plug and Play devices and will be automatically detected unless faulty or if you are using an older version of Windows ( 98 / 95 etc.).
XP /Vista / 7 will detect your device automatically. Try it on some other USB port on the back of the computer instead of the front ( where usually people tend to connect portable devices ) if its a desktop PC.

Download the converter after you run the link below ....Put check next to converter/firmware update/Manual download...Go to your start menu programs go to sansa choose Sansa updater follow instructions.......(http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Installer/1082/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe) here is the link After installation connect your sansa......
Also make sure you are connected to a 2.0 usb the back of the computer is best (the motherboard2.gif).... USB mode located on the sansa if asked to change to MSC goto menu press enter scroll to settings press enter scroll to usb mode press enter scroll to msc press enter press menu.....Connect should auto start sansa software..... Sansa software/driver Updates firmware follow instructions Downloads manual Downloads converter

Set sansa to recovery mode, Start the updater plug the sansa into the computer, unplug when told sansa, should restart (Lock sansa press and hold rec and menu until recovery begins)
Reset All
NOTE: THIS IS AN ADVANCED OPERATION AND RESTORES ALL SETTINGS
TO THE FACTORY DEFAULTS. NORMAL USERS ARE NOT RECOMMENDED
TO PERFORM THIS OPERATION!
If your device freezes up press the Menu button and hold for 15 seconds.
This is like a power down of the device. Once you perform the reset, the adjustments you made during last operation
will be gone.....
Go to my computer click on folder scroll to sansa and open the media folder and open each sub folder and delete manually then delete the folders Right click on your sansa then format a couple of times hope this works

Is there driver/ software for Win ME for the Sansa Clip mp3?


a friend told me that if the device shows as"connected" when hooked up (it does) AND the battery charges correctly (it does), then (a)the USB connection had enough juice; and (b) the PC recognizes it - i just had to FIND it. device manager/ MyComputer: nada; same for ANY file/ folder with "sansa" or "sandisk." working thru WMP (Windows Media Player), however, I discovered that drive E - for a portable hard drive, NOT currently connected via USB - was STILL showing up in the "Copy to CD or device" field. sure enough, it was the SanDisk clip player (even though it was NOT under the "Recognized Portable Devices" subsection). without using the installation disk at all, it downloaded tunes just fine. *note: the installation disk seemed to be an .exe file ONLY for the Rhapsody music service. as noted above, it was unnecessary. also - my USB ports are 1.1 and not 2.0, and package stated USB 2.0 was a "minimum requirement" - not true*

My sansa e250 could not be detected on my computer


In Normal conditions, after plugging in the MP3, amd waiting one or two minutes, the device should be installed automatically by the system. This works in the same way on Vista and on XP. On Windows 98 and Me the device may not work. After the MP3 is installed, you can reach the Sansa under My Computer (Computer). It will be displayed as an external disk named Sansa. If you are using an USB extension or an USB external hub, get rid of it. Try plugging the MP3 to a different USB port. Try unplugging AC charger, and removing laptop batter for ten minutes, sometimes this can fix problems caused by accumulation of electrostatic charges on USB controller. If that does not solve the problem, test a different USB device on the same laptop, and test the MP3 on a different computer. Either one may be faulty. If the problem is the laptop you may fix it by removing and reinstalling USB root hub on hardware devices in Control Panel.

My sanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player will not charge anymore. At least not on the computer I'm on. I have had it hooked up to charge for 2 days now and nothing. Why is this and how can I charge it?


This is direct from the sansa FAQs at http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_clip/faqs 02. Why won’t my Sansa Clip charge when I connect it to my computer? USB Cable
Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable.

Computer in Hibernation mode
Make sure that the computer isn’t entering hibernate or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be on in order to charge your player.

USB Port 2.0
Make sure your player is connected USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).

USB Port location
Try plugging in different USB port (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); sometimes the front USB ports have problem charging up the device.

Battery
Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.

Latest firmware
Make sure to update firmware by downloading and installing the Sansa Firmware Updater.

I hope this helps, and don't forget to rate the answer.

My sansa media converter did not detect my sansa e280


Set the device to MSC mode (default is Auto) in the USB properties on the Sansa device. This worked for me with a Sansa Fuze on Windows XP running Sansa Media Converter 1.0. Hope this helps.

This is my problem


According to sansa, the minimum required operating system is windows XP. This may be the problem. Does your USB port work with anything else?

How can I get my Sansa m250 to power on??


If your Sansa Connect won’t start check to make sure the device is
charged and the hold switch is in the unlocked position. If the device still
will not start, you may need to run the Sansa Device Recovery application.
With a copy of the Sansa Device Recovery application installed on a PC,
you can connect your to the device via the USB cable to the PC, and
restore the device software to an uncorrupted state. However, all of your
subscription settings and content will be removed from the device.

or google the sansa connect recovery tool

Sansa clip mp3 player


To help you with that, I need to know what operating system your using (XP, Vista, ect...) and what other devices you have plugged into the computer. There are a few things you can try. When you plug it in, does it say it's connected? Does the "Found new hardware" wizard come up? Let me know, I'll see what I can do to help

Sansa e260 says connected but device not recognized


I agree with the above suggestion. Try setting the USB Mode under "Settings" on "MSC" on the Sansa. My computer would not recognize the e260 when the mode was set to "MTP"; works fine on "MSC".
