Sansa View 8 GB Can't Locate?

I have a Sansa View 8GB Video Media Player and I am trying to connect it to my computer so that I can put music on it and the device does not show up on my computer. It will show up once and then states that I must reboot my computer in order for it to be properly installed. So I did and then when rebooted it still does not show up. I thought it was my computer which is fairly old, but my IPOD works fine on. So I went to borrow a friends computer and have the same issue. The player is for my niece and she doesnt have internet access so I offered to do it for her, however the device is not recognized by my computer so I can not. Can anyone walk me through how to find the device, or have this issue and have any advice?

What i would recommend you to do is to uninstall the device and reinstall it back...to uninstall it...assuming that you are running windows xp...click on start, right click on my computer and go to properties..you should have your system properties open then click under hardware then device manager...look for the sansa device..it usually located under portable device..if its not showing there i would recommend you to look for under disk drives and see if its there..right click on the device and click on uninstall...after you unintall it unplug your device from the computer....Then follow this link below to download the porting kit...http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A2E73160-E862-4F19-BB26-C0CAFE798955&displaylang=en .Then check the mode of yuor device to make sure it sunder MTP not msc...To check the mode go under menu, settings and choose usb mode...After you check the mode open up your windows media player click on tools, options and click under privacy...clear the history and caches...after you finish you can plug the device on the back of the computer not the front then windows should recongnize it and it should work properly..if that doesnt solve the problems upgrade your windows media player to 11 even though you have done that already..and try to reconnect your device..make sure you have it on the back of your computer...

Should you have any questions..let me know..
P.S.Please rate accordingly...
Thank You

Describe how to delete songs on the SanDisk Sansa video MP3 player 8GB


Connect the Sansa to your computer using the supplied cable. Open up an explorer window. You'll see your Sansa either as a removable hard drive or as a Sansa, depending on the USB mode. Either way, navigate into it, then into the MUSIC folder. You can delete entire albums from here, or navigate into the albums and delete individual tracks.

Sansa view 8 gb


I think I have a solution. If you're using Windows Media Player like you're supposed to, click the sync button in the top menu bar. if it says click here to sync device slick there and it'll pop up a menu telling you to name your Sansa and click ok and you should be good to go.
