Computer doesn't recognize Sansa

I am not able to get past your instructions to in looking for Sansa. It is not showing up under portable device and it does not show up under disk drivers. I went to the control panel and tried to unistall Sansa from there, but only the Sansa Converter is listed. Should I just try to download from the porting kit link that you gave me? I thought I had an installation disk, but I can't find it.

Is there driver/ software for Win ME for the Sansa Clip mp3?


a friend told me that if the device shows as"connected" when hooked up (it does) AND the battery charges correctly (it does), then (a)the USB connection had enough juice; and (b) the PC recognizes it - i just had to FIND it. device manager/ MyComputer: nada; same for ANY file/ folder with "sansa" or "sandisk." working thru WMP (Windows Media Player), however, I discovered that drive E - for a portable hard drive, NOT currently connected via USB - was STILL showing up in the "Copy to CD or device" field. sure enough, it was the SanDisk clip player (even though it was NOT under the "Recognized Portable Devices" subsection). without using the installation disk at all, it downloaded tunes just fine. *note: the installation disk seemed to be an .exe file ONLY for the Rhapsody music service. as noted above, it was unnecessary. also - my USB ports are 1.1 and not 2.0, and package stated USB 2.0 was a "minimum requirement" - not true*
