Well i try to sync music to it and it stops on the

Just to be clear,most players require no special drivers. MSC mode will work out of the box with just about any MP3 player and any OS (W*ndows Linux). MTP mode will work as long as you have WMP 10 or 11 installed. Firstly, I will try to explain MSC mode and MTP mode and what they mean. MSC stands for Mass Storage Class. When your player is in this mode, the computer will see it the same way it would see a Thumb drive or flash drive, as a removable disk. It will assign the first available drive letter to your device, as well as one for the memory card (if it uses one and it is installed). This is probably the more popular of the 2 modes, and is a more "open source" type of standard. Most computers detect the player in this mode without a problem very well and right away.
MTP stands for Media Transfer Protocol. It is a Microsoft standard and is Microsoft's solution to connecting MP3 players and cameras to a w*ndow based Computer. MTP mode must be used in order to transfer ANY Digital Rights Management (DRM) protected content. MP3's downloaded form services like Rhapsody and Napster will only function in this MTP mode.
Most good MP3 players will have both of these modes at the users options.
Although not all do, so it is a good idea to check yours for these settings if you are having connection problems
NOTE: Any songs added to your player in MSC mode will not be available in MTP mode and vise-a-versa. In other words You can't see the files added in the other mode and you can not play them. You know you have some files on your player and can not find them now, you may have to change modes so they are available. Some players in the SanDisk line up use Instead, an "Auto Detect" function that is suppose to Automaticly use MTP mode. If MTP mode does not work for any reason, it should default to MSC mode.
To use MSC or MTP modes go to your players settings.
These settings will vary based on player model and you might have to refer to your users Manual. Check their web site for a download in PDF form. Turn the player on, if it is not already Navigate to the main menu of your player; this is the same menu that gives us options such as Play, Record, Info, etc... Navigate to "Settings" on the main menu of the player. After navigating to "Settings", you should see an option that states "USB" or "USB MODE" From here we can select MSC or MTP modes (could vary based on player model) Highlight the desired mode and select it, at this point it will roll back to the 'Settings' menu Connect the player to your computer and verify it is connecting in the desired mode. It should be noted, when a device is in MSC mode, it will appear as a "Removable disk". When connected in MTP mode, it will show up as an "Audio Device".
Now most players now days can and will use`MS W*ndows Media Player. You can also try to reinstall W*ndows Media Player 10 or 11 Next W*ndows has a update to fix if all else fails try this link. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A2E73160-E862-4F19-BB26-C0CAFE798955&displaylang=en

I lost my cd and need to reinstall the driver and

Sorry but there are no specific drivers on the CD for this player. I've had this player since '05 and was trying to get it installed under Windows Vista with only limited success. This player seems to work best with Win XP.

The c150 has two modes of operation MSC and MTP. In MSC mode Windows recognizes the player as a flash drive. You create folders using Windows Explorer just like you do on any hard drive and then copy your music files into the folders. The second mode (MTP) works with a music player such as Rhapsody or Windows Media Player (ver. 10 or higher). SanDisk bundled Rhapsody on their CD and I just installed it (today) on my Vista PC and it seems to work OK. Any files dropped on the player in MTP mode are invisible to the music player running in MSC mode. However, all files added to the player, regardless of the mode used, are visible as one big happy list when you use the player.

You set the mode you want to use before plugging the player into a USB port by going to "menu/settings/USB" on the player then choose either MSC or Auto Detect (defaults to MTP).

SanDisk has very little tech support info about this player on it's web site. I hope this is helpful.

How do i delete music from my sansa mp3 150

easiest way is to hook it up to your pc, go to start, my computer, then find the sansa - it should have a folder that says music, go into that folder and delete what you want deleted and add what you want to add... that's the easiest way

"MTP DB Mismatch Format?"

I had the same problem In My Sandisk Sansa, and the way I fixed it is the following: Plug your player in your computer in MSC mode (On your player, go to settings, then USB and choose MSC) Then in "my computer", right-click on the player icon and go to "properties". In "properties" go to "tools" and in the first option, which is "error checking", click on "check now". In check disk options, check both "automatically fix file system errors" and "Scan for and attempt recorevy of ba sectors". It's going to take a few minutes (phase 1 and phase 2 will be displayed). Wait until it is complete. When it is done, close the "properties" window and right-click on the icon of the player and click on "format"! It should say format complete and the player should be then be ready to synchronize files again! Now Enjoy That Good luck!! From:-Javed(Taj)

"unknown" album or artist

If you're using MSC mode (moving files via explorer), I believe the player ignores the directory structure for the most part, and uses the MP3 tags. I've had very good success using Media Monkey (which is freeware) to group the songs, and then transferring from there, in MTP mode.

If you've already cleared all the songs, might as well update the firmware (that solves most issues).
