My new Sansa view appears in my computer. But, I would also what it to appear in the Windows Media Player so that I could sync files easily like I did to my Sansa Clip. Are there anyother ways for this device to appear in WMA in mind?

Hi there, I use WMP too and have had good results with it. My thought is some files can not be played like some avi files won't work. They have to be windows compatible or they won't work on your mp3 player. Be careful what you download too (viruses) can affect your players software. I would do a virus scan before transfer. Good luck.
When your player is connected to your computer with the USB connector, you can use your computer file browser software to view all files on your player. Your player will appear as Sansa m230 or m240. Follow these steps: 1. Use the USB connector cable provided with your player to connect the USB port on the top of your player to an open USB port on your computer. The player will appear as a Windows Portable Device on your computer. 2. Delete your music files to the player with software tools like Rhapsody, Windows Media Player or Napster Client.
To transfer music from your computer to your player: 1. Use the USB connector cable provided with your player to connect the USB port on your player to an open USB port on your computer. The player will appear as a Windows Portable Device on your computer. (Can't find the USB port on your player? See The Basic Controls section on page 3.) 2. Drag and drop music files to the player from any location on your hard-drive
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.
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, 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.
I jsut purchased an 8GB sansa view mp3 and I downloaded it like I was suppose to and it does not work in Rhapsody at all, also in the windows media player it shows that the device was installed correctly but it still doesn't work and I still can't sync my songs to it. The sansa icon won't even show up
Get the latest firmware upgrade - this player wasn't originally designed with WMP 11 in mind. Also, make sure the laptop has the folders "My Documents" and "My Music" on it - this is primarily where WMP reads from.
Mp3 files can be loaded using either WMP or Windows file manager (Explorer) but a different USB setting is required by each. WMP uses the MTP setting while Explorer uses MSC. If you used the wrong setting this may have caused your problem. Also for some reason MP3 files loaded using a file manager will not appear when trying to view them using WMP.
To solve the issue I used the MSC setting to view all of my MP3's using file manager. I then deleted the ones I had recently added, changed the setting back to MTP and reloaded them using WMP. Worked like a charm. Hope that helps.
