The sandisk sansa m240 1 GB player is also recognized by Windows XP "My Computer" or "Explorer". To make the windows XP operationg system to recognize the player it requires a little change in the player setting itself. 1. Go to the player menu 2. Go to settings 3. Go to USB 4. Select MSC (Generally by default it is set to "Auto detect") AND YOU ARE THERE!!!!! The player is shown as a new hard drive in My computer / Explorer -- Tridib Khanra

Kindly see, if this helps. My sister's Sansa M240 couldn't be recognized in Windows XP "My Computer". But, I tried to open Devices from Real Player. It worked.

On the Sansa, settings menu make sure USB is set to autodetect. Uh, I also tried another USB port, so I'm not positive which fixed it! So much for the scientific method.

Sansa e200

There is one option, not really a fix, just a workaround. Try the player on a different computer computer and see if it is recognnised there. If it is, then use something like a pen drive to transfer music from the PC that doesnt recognise the device to another that does. Now you can transfer music using the WMPlayer sync service.

If your device is not being recognised on many computers, it looks like it is time to chuck it away. You can also try this first though..
1. Remove the player from the PC and switch it off.
2. Restart the computer.
3. Hold the +Volume button and connect to computer.
4. Keep the button pressed for at least 60 secs, and you should see the "Found New Hardware" balloon pop up, indicating that the device has been detected.

If even that fails, then I'm afraid your Sansa player has run its course, and you may need to purchase a new player...:(
