Re: My computer does not recogcnise the mp3 player when...
You'll have to be more specific with what kind of mp3 player you have...and yes a driver download should fix the problem. also try going to start>control panel>add new hardware and go through the "Add new hardware wizard"

1. Get on Computer 2. Plug in USB cord in the USB slot on the main computer. 3. Open My Computer and it should say on the side there is a USB device or the type of MP3 players name. 4. Open up another My Computer window. 5. Goto the location your music files are located and make sure both windows are visible on the screen. 6. Drag your music files to your MP3's music file section. Sometimes the music files wont work so first try the WMA (windows media audio) file first. If the WMA files dont work on your MP3, convert them to MP3.
Yes the chord is the charging cable and the download/upload cable.
You will plug it into the usb port on your computer for charging.
You will need Windows Media Player installed in your computer ...after it is installed add your songs to Windows Media Player, then plug your Mp3 player in with Windowns Media Player running, your mp3 player will be recognized and then you can add the songs you added to Windows Media Player.

Hi, simply connect the USB wire that came with your MP3 player to the computer via the USB slot and it will automatically find and install the relevant drivers as this devise is plug and play. Hope this helps Muzzi_123
Uninstall/remove the mp3 player from the device manager of windows while its plugged into you computer and unplug afterwards from your usb port and plug it back in, windows now sees a new device and starts installing it.
Go to the configuration panel\system and click at the tab hardware and klik at the button device manager.
I have fixed our problem! Hope this helps you out. I downloaded a manual for the 44090 model.
Make sure that you don't have it plugged into the usb port and the player is switched to mp3 mode. Open the software and then when it says to plug it in now, you need to turn the player into music mode. Press and hold for 3 to 4 seconds the centre power/play/pause button. It will start the red light flashing. Once the light is flashing it is in music mode. Plug in to the usb port and the computer should recognise it bringing up the install now button for the software. Click 'install now' and it should work.
I don't use the software to load songs I just use windows media player and once I had passed this install now bit media player recognised it instantly.
Everytime you want to listen to music you need to put the player into music mode by holding down that button till the red light flashes. Once music is loaded on it starts playing as soon as that red light starts flashing!
Good luck and I really hope this works out for you too.
unplug the power cable going into the power supply. wait for a while and plug it back
install software with updated drivers. check to make sure you have the most recent motherboard drivers.download if necessary.plenty of sites available
update your windows media player
get Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2 if possible
goto Start Menu->Control Panel->System and then clicking the Hardware tab and going to Device Manager. in Device Manager you could delete all entries with "USB" in the name and reboot. let Windows redetect the USB devices. uninstall your usb drivers and download the latest ones available and reinstall your usb drivers.
Depends on your operating system - this player only works with Windows 98 (with a driver only), Windows 2000 SP3 and Windows XP. Try another USB port on your computer if your OS is a compatible type. The procedure I would generally follow is to install the CD with the device NOT plugged into the computer, and only after it is installed, plug the mp3 player into the computer.
If all of the above conditions have been met. Unplug the mp3 player, turn it off, hold in the play button, and reconnect it to the computer. Keep holding the play button. Should go into recovery mode.
Hi-USB refers to the USB 2.0 standards. It appears your computer only has USB 1.* hardare on it's motherboard. If you have a free PC slot, you can buy a 2.0 USB upgrade card. It will speed up the transfer times between USB devices and your computer.
As for your computer not "seeing" your sansa, try another USB cable. If that does not help, check under control panel/system/device manager to see if the device is properly installed.
The sansa operates as a "removable drive" so you
should see your player as another disk drive in windows explorer.
If you have a drivers/installation CD-rom for your player reinstall them, or check the sansa website for possible newer updates.
