Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
Hi there. I bought a Sansa Clip 2 G from Best Buy on Saturday for my son. We went to plug it into the computer and a little "new hardware found" icon appeared on the screen, but it was not recognized in My Computer so I don't know where to download the files. Also, at the beginning it showed "connecting" when I plugged it in the USB port, but now it doesn't do anything... any helpful suggestions?
pc doesent recognize the mp3
Reformat and upgrade the firmware
REFORMAT FOR WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
FIRMWARE UPGRADE - Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
