Hi fellow Sansa users,
Here is the deal, I bought my Clip+ way back in Sept 2010 and I am very familiar with all the tricks that have to be done in order for my brother’s computer (Win XP with Windows Media Player 11) to detect my Clip+
I’ve done the “necessary steps” atleast 4-5 times because he had to reformat his PC from time to time.
Now that I have my own laptop, I cannot seem to make it work. I have read almost every thread about this problem but I have never found a real solution. So I am writing my own case with full details.
What I have:
Windows 7 Home Basic
Sansa Clip+ 4GB Blue
Windows Media Player 12
MTP Porting KIt Installed
Intel i5 2nd Gen
Brand new laptop so don’t tell me that it could be a USB port problem, I have tried the two 2.0 ports and one 3.0 port
Standard USB cable
What I have already done:
Switching it on while holding the middle button
Changing it to MSC mode
Changing it to MTP mode
Changing it to Auto Detect mode
And yes, my Clip+ is chargiing when I connect to any of the USB ports.
I have done these already so don’t tell me to:
Run device manager and click update driver or something, the yellow question mark icon wont even show up
Update firmware, (firmware updater/my laptop wont even recognize my mp3 player)
Update Windows Media Player (I have already have the latest WMP12)
Install MTP Porting Kit (already installed)
Now, can anyone of you still suggest something worth trying? Please don’t tell me to just transfer MP3s from my brother’s PC because it will just defeat the purpose of me buying my own.
Please only reply if you have something good to say, Thanks in advance!
