Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)
I have a Sansa e280 and it worked just fine with xp. I now have vista on a new machine and when I plug in the e280, vista "looks for drivers", then fails. In short, it won't recognize it in the mtp mode. It will allow me to look at only video/voice in the msc mode, but I can't see the folders with all my music. What's going on? Any ideas? Thanks
I am using vista and not able to transfer any song. Some time it says driver not istalled. Some time it says driver installed successfuly. In either cases I am not able transfer anything.
Do you have any suggestion?
I am having the same problem and when I try your option, Mp3 Doctor, the MP11 doesn't recognize it either. The issue I and the others are having are when we are in the MTP mode. Sandisk hasn't been any help with this issue either. I keep getting bounced around betweeen HP, Microsoft and Sansa. My player is on the compatibility list for Microsoft which means it should be a "playforsure" device but obviously this is a Sansa and MS issue because this issue does not occur on my XP computer. SOMEONE, ANYONE, PLEASE HELP! I am about to throw this player through the window.

Format - 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

I have a e250 and it works great with my laptop which is running window vista. One thing i do remember missing with is the usb setting on the mp3 player. Maybe you can try switching between the usb opinions to see if that will fix your problem. the usb setting screen is under "setting", "usb mode".
