If you have trouble connecting your mp3 player to your computer, you can always try this --it definitely works on my computer;

1) turn on your mp3 player,
2) push the 'power slider' downward to put it on hold,
3) press on the left of the wheel as if you were to go to the previous song,
4) wait until the 'blue rectangle with the lock' flashes once,
5) plug in your mp3 player to your computer,
6) wait for a few seconds, and a menu should pop-up

hope this was helpful!

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.

Why is there no manual with my sansa fuze


Hello,

For the Sansa Fuze there's a manual available in pdf format on the Sandisk support site:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/UserManual/FUZE/fuze_userguide_en.pdf
Save this file to a location on your computer for later use.

When you explore "My Computer" the micro SD card with x GB memory, should be available as an extra external drive.
This drive will show up as an extra drive letter with a total capacity of x GB .

PLEASE HELP !


Ok, first take in a deep breath. What you should do is hold in the power/menu button. hold it in for about 2-5 minutes, yes it will take a while. just be patient. once it is finished restarting plug it back into your computer and it should be detected.

My 8 gb sansa


Does the charging sign show up? It could be a bad cable. Also make sure you have the right software You can get it here at: http://www.sandisk.com/sansa
Go to Support\product support\sansa view\ thenlook in the right column

Try it with different usb ports as well.
Go to Device Manager and look for "?'s" or "!'s"
