I had the same problem, instead of having the player in mtp keep it in MSC, go to settings then USB change to MSC. Then connect with the sansa media converter open.on your computer. This worked for us.

The Sansa Media Converter (SMC) software is required to convert and transfer videos and photos (pictures) to your Sansa player as well as the memory card in your Sansa player.

NOTE: Only the Sansa e200v2, Fuze, and View allow viewing of video files from the memory card.

STEP 1 - Download and install Sansa Media Converter
The Sansa Media Converter application is available via the Sansa Firmware Updater.


STEP 2 - Convert and transfer your video or image files
NOTE: To see a list of supported image/video file formats, see Sansa Media Converter does not convert a file
1. Run the Sansa Media Converter.
2. Connect the Sansa player to the PC.

7. Depending on what Sansa player that's plugged in or if a microSD is present in the Sansa player, click on the Sansa player or the microSD card on the left pane to select where to transfer the converted files. (in the sample below, we selected the microSD card)

For proper conversion of videos and pictures use the Sansa Media Converter.

There is a download available on the site of Sandisk, called, SMC:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/SMC/
You can have a direct installation or save the execute file, having installed it later.

Note: files should have certain formats before they can be converted to the player with SMC. See next link:

Sansa e260 says connected but device not recognized


Substitute REC fo volume + in the following:
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
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 Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

My sansa media converter did not detect my sansa e280


Set the device to MSC mode (default is Auto) in the USB properties on the Sansa device. This worked for me with a Sansa Fuze on Windows XP running Sansa Media Converter 1.0. Hope this helps.

Sansa media converter!! please help!


Besides the Media Converter, you will need other software which is available for download on the Sansa website - the media converter is just one part of the total package.

If that still fails,
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 Wizard.
