Sansa c150 Problem

When ever i try to sync music form windows media player after a certain point the sycnin freezes and tell the computer tells me my sansa is reacting slowly or not responding or something of that nature and that I must unplug it and try again. This happens over and over, the first time after like the fifth song but after that it wont sync any futher its just sticks at 'preparing to sync' and never does until i stop sync and the computer message appears. very fustrating!

After messing around with settings for a while I finally got it to work. I set the USB setting to MSC instead of auto detect. When I hooked it up to my computer I got an error message I had to cancel several times, but was then able to synch my playlist and it appears to work. I am still curious as to what solution Sandisk is going to offer.

It sounds like you may have some other removeable storage in your computer...try to rename all removeavble disk to something else...they would be listed under my computer...then you want to clear the history and caches under windows media player...by clicking on tools, options....go under privacy..clear the history and caches..hit ok..and plug your device to a 2.0 usb ports...that should solve the problems you are having..if that doesnt work uninstall your device from the device manager and reinstall it back again...

I know its a silly question but can anyone please tell me the step-by-step process to transfer songs to my sansa c150 MP3 player......... Thanks

  • Step 1:Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer.
  • Step 2:Wait for your computer to find and recognize the player. This may take a few moments. Once you receive a confirmation message, open your computer and scan the icons for the SanDisk MP3 player.
  • Step 3:Open the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player on your computer. The music files that you currently have saved to the player’s memory are displayed.
  • Step 4:Open a folder containing music files that is stored in your desktop computer’s memory. Scan the files for songs that you want to transfer to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player.
  • Step 5:Left-click on a song file and drag to the SanDisk Sansa window. Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list.
  • Step 6:Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.
Tips & Warnings
  • When properly connected, the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player displays a USB Connected message on its LCD screen.
  • The music files in the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player will have different icons next to their filenames which will tell the file type at a glance (MPEG, MPEG layer 3 or WMA, for example).
  • Some songs feature copyright protection which may interfere with your ability to transfer music to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player.
