Sansa e250 - MTP Driver failure - HELP!

Everytime I try to connect my e250 to my BRAND NEW Vista machine, it fails to install the MTP driver.  Can anyone actually help with this?  I have been scouring the internet for answers, but I cannot find one.

 

This same devices works fine in XP.  Has anyone got this device to work with Vista?

Vista...is that the new version of Windows ME?

 

I believe the actual "drivers" are part of the media player module...can you reinstall/update WiMP in Vista?  If so, that will fix your "driver" / MTP protocol issue.

 

Microsoft decided to "idiot proof" things in Vista...oh well, we all know what that does.  Once you find the WiMP issue (hopefully some Vista fans will chime in), you'll have a happily communicating sansa.

On my XP system, the link is here.

 

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx is right here

 

But WMP is more tightly entangled in Vista, so you'll need to look through Microsoft support pages a bit.

The link you gave says it is for XP.  We need it for Vista and when you go there I sure don't see the download for Vista option, only for XP.

My Vista came with WMP 11 standard...I didn't need to update.

Go the www.microsoft.com or Google "Windows Media Player" and see what you can find for Vista. Since I'm on XP, all I can get from Microsoft are XP links.

This page shows it for Vista. (At least on my Vista 32bit machine.)

 

But for you people that "can't find it" go to Microsoft.com, click "Downloads" then "Media Player".

On the left there is a menu that you can select for "Windows Vista".

Not that hard!

 

I only sound angry because it took me all of 10seconds.

 

Using (and searching) the internet is a SKILL some need to PRACTICE...

Okay, enough of that.  How about a trip down one thread to another discussion of the same issue. I put a few suggestions in there.  I'm feeling froggy.
