Re: My mp3 won't connect to a (my) computer.
This is the worst mp3 player ever invented - i have to tell you this up front. There is no driver, the company does not support the product anymore - I would return it now while you still can.
Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.
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.

Connect your ipod touch to your computer and make sure itunes is open. Hold down the power and home button for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds only release the power button and keep holding the home button until your itunes says it found an ipod in recovery mode. Then restore your ipod by clicking restore on itunes, or restore to a backup you might have made, but make sure it is before you had the passcode, otherwise it will reload the passcode lock.

With the phone UN-PLUGED and powered OFF. Hold the home button and plug into a computer using I-tunes. Continue to hold till the restore screen starts on the computer. You will restore the device to factory and loose everything but it will be useable.
Your school's internet connection has a special set up on it. It will only give access to certain people who have certain computers. You cannot just log on because you want to on their network, unless the school officially tells you that you can use their internet. If that is the case, talk to the school about how to join their internet network.
Try plugging it into your computer. Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons at the same time until the screen goes black (can take longer than 10 seconds) then let go of the sleep button (the button on the top of the unit) while keeping the home button held in (the button on the front of the iPod). Keep the home button held in until your computer recognizes new hardware. You should hear some sort of sound coming from your computer speakers. That and the "installing new hardware" notice should come up in your taskbar (this is where you computer shows the clock). Let go of the home button once this happens. Open up iTunes and then restore it.
Keep in mind, this will remove the code, but it will also completely remove all other data as well.

Try connecting it to another computer and see if it will recognize it as sansa or removable drive. if it does then download the sansa update software and install it. Make sure you disconnect the sansa and connect it when asked. This will update your sansa and add the Usb Mode.

This is a flash device and it comes with a USB extension cable, try not using the extension cable and plugging the unit directly into one of the REAR usb ports on your computer. This should make the device show up as a 'Removable Disk' drive under 'My Computer'.
