Check Sandisk website to see if they have Vista compatible software. i know that newer usually means better, but in the case of Microsoft Vista, you will be astounded at how many devices are not compatible with the OS. Hopefully SP1 will fix many of these issues.

My computer can't recognize my sansa fuze player... plz help me..


The Fuzeplayer must NOT be connected to the computer before you install the software.
If this has happpened, you will need to remove the Fuse driver in Device Manager. (Inst for XP)
Go to My Computer->Right click and select Properties. In properties, select hardware and Device Manager.
With Device Manager open, plug in the Sansa Fuse player. Find the new driver that popped in.
(You can do and undo this several times until you are certain you have the right one.)
Right click the fuze driver and select 'Remove'.
Close all windows you opened.
Unplug the fuze player and do not connect it until the driver is reinstalled with the driver disk. When the software asks, plug it back in.
That should solve it.
Unsure? ask a knowledgable friend to help.

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*

Computer wont recognize sansa clip mp3 player


Reformat clip with disk utility after looking at it like an external disk. Do this by turning it off. Puting it in lock mode. Hold down middle button as you plug it in.

I am mad at my Clip as it did the same thing.
