There are two connection settings in USB: MTP and MSC. For some reason MTP is the default, but it doesn't connect properly on all computers. Select MSC and plug the player in again, the computer will recognize sansa e250 but not show the driver just yet. It is installing recognition software (just basic drivers - nothing heavy) and it doesnt tell you what its doing until its complete. WAIT FOR IT. Once it is complete you will see both the sansa e250 and the removable memory slot in your "my computer" now you're good to go.
Plug it into the usb device. Hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds. Go to the RCA website download the latest firmware and install it. That fixed mine and a few other people I know that have one.
I had the same problem, all you have to do is first turn on the Mp3.Then go to settings. Then go down to USB mode. It will probably say, auto detect.But instead scroll down to MSC. If that doesn't work try MTP.
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
THEN, do the "Repair" in the Philips Device Manager
right click on "my computer" select "Device Manager" the u will see from the list a device which is named "OPAL" select update driver.. then u are prompted to search the drivers device (recommended).. click the "I will select the driver for my device" then select USB device and select the driver,, this will install the US driver,, after that ur computer can read ur player..
Grab the software directly from the Philips website at www.usasupport.philips.com - enter in your model #, click on software and drivers, then click on Device/Frimware Manager - this is a more recent version than that found on the installation CD.
Also, you can follow the FAQ process on the website which says "Player not recongized by PC"
If that fails, do a repair and a firmware upgrade: 1) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website 2) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button 3) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off (if you haven't done so already) - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new You will now be able to load the firmware upgrade by clicking on the update tab in Philips Device Manager. The firmware upgrade should resolve the issue permanently.
