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.

    The volume + method normally causes Windows to load the correct drivers, so don't get snippy with me.

    Uninstall the incorrect Tango driver, and re-run your installation CD.

    Sansa no longer carries the driver on their website. There are a few other people who have asked the same question about drivers for this player, so I would go back in the Fixya archives, and see if any of those outside websites work.
