    I have the very same problem. Vista won't accept & load my Sansa e250. I have changed it to MSC mode, still nothing. Vista will start install & then wants driver & fails to install. My Sansa shows in Device Manager under Portables with a dirty big exclimation mark. Sandisk help so far has told me to try all the things I have already, uninstall & reinstall & try on other OS & machine. Fine on XP machine but mine's Vista!!!!!

    Hey, the best solution to get your Sansa e200 series work with Vista is to switch the USB settings of your sansa from MTP to MSC mode.

    Navigate to Settings from your main Sansa menu, go to USB Mode and change the settings.

    Its working for me....

Looking at their site it looks as though they do not have a driver for vista for your mp3 player. you could download the xp driver and try it.or you could always make a duel booth system on your machine..not very pratical but it would be a fix.

Player won't work with vista? can i download software to make it compatible with vista?


Hello,

When you're able to view the menus of the player, look in the manual on page 30 = page 31 of the pdf file for the USB connection mode on your player:
Settings
USB > Auto Detect
> MSC
M200 series manual in pdf format:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/downloads/um/sansa-m200-um.pdf
With Windows Media Player 11 under Vista, the player should be
recognized as a media device in this Microsoft Media Player. Transfers can be made in MTP mode (Media Transfer Protocol) using WMP 11: USB mode should be in Auto Detect.
In Autodetect mode files on the player can also be viewed in the Explorer mode under My Computer, seeing the player as an external flash drive.
In WMP11 use Library and Sync mode for creating playlists and synchronizing music. More about how to use WMP11, see the help items in the player (click on e.g. Library or Sync etc.) or go to the Microsoft site:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/using.mspx


When USB mode is set to MSC mode (Mass Storage Class) the player can only be viewed in the Explorer under My Computer.


More online support for the Sandisk M230 under M200 series players.
Main main support link:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4487#m200
Update page for the players' firmware using the Sansa Firmware Updater:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1107/kw/updater/p/555%2C662%2C670%2C677/r_id/101834
Help links for the M200 series are also available on Sansa Forums:

Hi my sansa won't show up in my Explorer after I


Sansa support for c200 series:
http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_c200/faqs

Look for item 15 in the c200 faqs "player not recognized":
1. Have the Windows Mediaplayer 11 installed and updated
if this did not help and
2. When running Vista apply the microsoft hotfix
when not running Vista or this didn't help:
3. install the microsoft MTP porting kit
MTP stands for Media Transfer Protocol based on software linked
players.
4. If that didn't help try to connect in MSC mode.
MSC stands for Massage Storage Class based on hardware linked
devices, seeing the player as a removable disk: In the player
Go to Settings > System Settings > USB Mode & choose MSC.

Just ask for help if this will not solve your problem.

My sansa mp3 player isn`t recognized by the computer


It may depend on your operating system, but there are known issues in vista. There is also a hotfix from microsoft. This is from the Sansa Website FAQs at http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_clip/faqs

My Sansa player is not recognized by my computer when I connect it.

The most common reason for this problem is not having the latest Windows Media Player installed, or having a Windows OS version that is not supported by the Sansa player.

The Sansa players support Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista and above. If your operating system version is supported by the Sansa player:

SOLUTION 1 – Download and install the latest Windows Media Player

SOLUTION 2 – If that didn’t help, and you are running Windows Vista, apply the following hotfix - KB940199

SOLUTION 3 – If that didn’t help, download and Install the MTP Porting Kit (click here)

SOLUTION 4 – If that didn’t help, try connecting the device to the PC using MSC mode

On the Clip: Go to Settings > USB mode & choose MSC

I hope this helps and please don't forget to rate my answer.

First of all, may I ask if you have a mini disc player or a Sansa Clip? Because the Sansa Clip does not play discs of any kind.

If you do indeed have a Sansa Clip you will find the FAQ rather helpful here - http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_clip/faqs
Question 9 there is regarding devices not recognized by the PC and the solutions are as follows:

Sansa E280 isn't recognized by Vista


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/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
