    my san disk mp3 player comes on but it dosen't do nothing but say sansa

  • Anonymous Nov 23, 2007

    I plug it in, the player turns on automatically. my computer detects something, but is unable to access the players "hard drive". I CANNOT put anything on or take anything from my newly purchased mp3 player. This was a waste of my hard earned money. Never buying a product from scandisk again.

    Plug in the MP3 player into the computer (Vista) and the Mpr3 player shows it is connected, the computer indicates that driver software is installed, but the mp3 player does not show up in "computer" and I can't access the MP3 files. What's the deal?

I got the same problem on WinXP SP3. I haven't fixed the drive mapping issue, however if you have Winamp installed, you can use the Media Library feature of WinAmp which shows you everything on the mp3 player and also drag and drop files and playlists. It works like a charm. Windows Media Player also lets you do it, however I found their interface to be convoluted and confusing to figure out. I didn't want to create a playlist, just drop files onto the player and only WinAmp let me do it with ease. Winamp is free and you can get it at www.winamp.com

Don't worry, it's not Sansa, I purchased a new Sony and a new Samsung MP3s and both are not detected on my computer!

Sansa c250 and rhapsody


I first suggest that you use Windows Media Player on transferring songs to the player. Rhapsody is a p**n in the a** when i use it to transfer songs to the player. Well back to the topic, make sure the device that you have is set to MTP when you are transferring songs to the player using rhapsody.. If it will not transfer format the player using Settings and then FORMAT if it did not work format the player in MSC mode. To do this, go to settings then to USB MODE then change it to MSC and then connect the player to the computer. After connecting the player to the computer ti will be detected as a removable disk drive. Right click on it then choose FORMAT make sure the file system is FAT32. THen after the format is done. Chnage the mode back to MTP then transfer a song using rhapsody. If all else fails using the windows mediaplayer program. Here are the instructions on using the windows media player program.

Make sure your device is under MTP mode...to do that go under the menu settings, usb and device mode and change it to MTP

Assuming that you have windows media player 10.
1. Creating a selection in Windows Media Player
Launch Windows Media Player 10. Click on the Library tab then Add to Library > Add folder and select a folder (e.g. compilation of favourite songs, converted CD, folder of downloaded songs, etc.) from your hard drive (See Image 1). Click OK to confirm your selection. Your folder data will appear in the main window. Repeat the procedure for your other albums.

You can also do this by clicking File > Add to library > Add folder.

When your folders are ready, click-hold to select all your songs and then drag them to the window on the left, as indicated. Select the entire list again and click Now Playing List and select Synch List (See Image 2).

2. Transferring your selection to your MP3 player
Click on the Synchronize tab. Connect your MP3 player to your computer, your player will be automatically recognized by the computer and synchronization (that is file transfer) will begin immediately.

3. Transferring your MP3s to flash memory
Insert the memory card from your MP3 player or MP3 phone into your computer's card reader and open My Computer. Windows XP will automatically recognize your memory card and its icon should appear next to the other icons.

Click on its icon to open your memory card.

Select the MP3 file to transfer. If you want to transfer several files at once, control-click each individual file. In the File Manager window, click Copy File and select the destination folder.

CONNECTING AND TRANSFERRING
Connect to your Computer

2. Once connected to computer, it should be detected by the operating system automatically and is
shown as an additional drive called “Sansa c200”.
SANSA MEDIA CONVERTER
You will need to use Sansa Media Converter to transfer photos to your Sansa c200. Insert your SanDisk

programs to transfer/synchronize your files.

Otherwise, they can be dragged into the Data folder (these files will not appear on the player).
4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.
