Hello

Connect your Sansa MP3 player to more than one USB port on your computer. Ensure that your computer USB port is not corrupt or disabled by testing at least two available ports. This is especially useful when you possess no other USB-based equipment.


Inspect your USB ports' status to ensure they are enabled on your computer. Right-click "My Computer" and launch "Properties" to verify the availability of such connections. Select "Device Manager" from the Hardware tab and click the "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" from the list shown. If a red "X" is shown, the USB ports are disabled. Ensure your computer is updated by clicking "Start" and launching "Windows Update" from the Programs menu. Alternatively, inspect your USB port connectivity through your motherboard BIOS settings. Note that BIOS access and settings varies by mother board manufacturer.


Scan your computer for new hardware changes. From the Device manager, click the "Action" menu and select "Scan for hardware changes" while your Sansa MP3 player is connected. Allow your computer to attempt to find any physical component recently added in the event it failed to previously detect it.

Connect your Sansa player to a different computer. Test the connection on a different system's USB port to verify that the Sansa device's own connection has not been damaged. Inspect the USB ports on the computer in question as well to eliminate the possibility of both systems having problematic USB ports.

Change your Sansa MP3 player's USB plug. Sometimes the head of the plug may lose contact with the appropriate circuits. Obtain a secondary USB port at your local retail store and test it on an updated computer system.

E350 5.4 oxygen sensor not reading on one bank


most dealers do not read fault codes just to make money
have the fault codes read and that will determine which exhaust sensors are faulty ( heated oxygen sensor in the exhaust manifold) or o2 ( oxygen sensor after the cat converter)
the reading will also show it there is a problem ECM

My memory card is not working


Memory cards, also called memory sticks or MS cards, can create problems with a computer. Sometimes, a computer will not read the card or errors cause problems when removing files from the card to put them onto the computer.


Problems range from a virus on the memory card to inappropriate software on the computer. Fixing the problem partly depends on the cause of the problem, but making the card work is simple and takes only a few minutes.


Scan for viruses. Some viruses or worms infect MS cards.

A computer that suspects a virus might interfere with the memory card as a result.


Look for viruses or problems with the anti-virus software that won't allow the memory card to open. If a virus if found, remove the virus through the anti-virus software before opening the memory card.


Check that the computer has the appropriate software installed to read the card.

Some MS cards or memory sticks might require more updated software or specific software that is not on the computer.


If the software is installed, look for current updates and download any updates to determine if the problem is old software.


Open the control panel.


Click on "Add New Hardware" and see if it is available.

If the hardware for the memory card is not installed on the computer, this will allow installation.


Once installed, the card should read.

If the memory card is not showing up, the problem is often damage to the card, which prevents reading the card. If the card is damaged, it must be replaced.


Use an adapter.

Some memory cards are not designed for reading in a computer directly and require the appropriate adapter.


The adapter changes the data to the appropriate system for the computer to read it.


Hope this helps

All the wires on my computer are not hooked up


All I can tell you is to read up on specific computer hardware components. Get a few magazines on PC's and read them. Its not something that is easily explained without reading up on.

Building a computer is half reading and half hands-on.

Computer won't read hard drive in bios nor on start up


The first step is to ensure the hard drive is functional. Test it on another machine. Then check if the computer has the ability to read the newer drive. There may also be a bios update that may allow recognizing the newer drive.

MY DVD PLAYER ON MY COMPUTER WILL NOT READ INSERTED DVD-RW IT SAYS IT IS A DVD RAM


There are three DVD types: DVD-RW, DVD+RW and DVD RAM
Your computer must be able to read the DVD format or type that is inserted. This is not something where you can just download a program to change. It is in the hardware for your computer. Your computer tried to read the title track of the DVD that you thought was "DVD-RW" and it could not read it but based on the signature that it read thought that it was in "DVD RAM" format.

Solution: This computer will not read that DVD. Either get the information on a compatible formated DVD or find another machine that has DVD RAM capability to read it.

Cant read


Try a different usb port first, then try another computer (with a compatible OS, of course). If another computer will not recognize it, then the player is actually damaged.
