The easiest way to know if this device is installed two ways one there will be a small icon on the lower right bottom of the desktop tray it does vary as to the icon shape but if you scroll through them you will see your Scandisk mentioned there. This is also used for removing the disk do not just pull the disk out without closing it this way first. Also you can left click on My Computer this will bring you into a separate window which displays your hard drive C or other drives if you have them or devices that are installed on your computer it will be located in my computerr. You should see Scandisk there. If not then it did not pick it up most likely this will not be the case it should be there.

Now in order to send files and pull files just use it as another drive if the Scandisk drive is showing it as a letter E: then when you are going to save things to it you can either right click and send files to Scandisk E: or you can copy and past or move them to that drive by dragging files. Or when you get to a downloaded file and you want to save it to your Scandisk E: drive just look for the Scandisk and its assigned letter it just becomes another external drive that is all it is nothing more. Just like C: or D: but it is an external one you placed in the USB port.

Remember very important that you close it down properly or you can loose any saved data in a nano second if you do not close it properly when you are ready to remove it from the USB port. I do hope that this explained it further for you. Thanks for using FixYa! do not forget to place a vote for me if you will! John

Hi,

Sandisk USB Thumb Drive or memory card
They are plug and play so just plugging it in makes it work
You dont need any additional software

Go To "My Computer"
You should see "Removable Disk or Drive"
Just double click on it to open the drive

Then copy and paste or drag your files onto it

Hope this helps, please rate!

I have a really old computer and I put my flash drive into the where it is supposed to go, but nothing came up. What am I supposed to do?


Some Flash Drives don't come with an "autorun" installed in it, if you have a Windows 7 Operative System, it might be installing the driver for it. If it's already installed, go to your computer menu and check if the drive shows up there (In the "removable drives/devices" area).If it doesn't show up, try plugin it in another USB port, your port might be the on not working.

How do i transfer songs to my player???i dont have the drivers installed....


If you have the installation CD use that. You could go to SanDisk web site under downloads or support and download from internet. Final it might be "plug & play". Which means plug the player into a usb port and it will install itself.

Cant install mp3 player


Go into the menu of the Sansa itself and change the USB mode to MSC mode- the user manual will tell you how to do this. Then try plugging it into the computer again. If it still fails, you may have to install Microsoft's MTP Porting kit, but I would have to know your Operating System before i could tell you for sure. Here is a link to some additional information that may or may not be helpful - from people who have had the same problem:

Sandisk have installed driver but am lost as to transfer data


First plugin the sandisk to your usb port, and then check from Windows Explorer, does your sandisk cruzer detected? you'll get a new drive letter besides your local drive or
named "removable disk".
If you do see it then just do format (you'll lose the U3), copy, store, overwrite it again and again as you like.
If you still need the U3 application, pls read this:

Computer doesn't recognise SanDisk sddr-103 as having any capasity.


Don't know this particular one but it is possible the driver software did not install correctly.

Plug it into the US port and restart your system.
This may force Blindows to 'see' it and install a driver or ask you for one.

Couldn´t connect SanDisk Sansa e250 to Computer


I don't know what to tell you, but since nobody else is helping. Make sure that you've got the mp3 player plugged into a usb port.

Oh, and hopefully you're running XP or Vista. Sandisk requires it.
