My previous flash player (a Mamba Mano mp4 video, $30 at Fry’s on Las Vegas BLVD) got run over by a car (long story). It’s now dead. The car killed it. I got the Sansa Express to replace it. Only $10.99 for Refurb w/ free shipping.
Anyhow, my dead player has symptoms like you described.
I too have the same problem with my player…
When I connect the Player to my PC,the device is getting detected.
But unable to open it.Error message stating “Please insert a drive” is shown.
Wat is the problem and how to solve it? Please help!
Try this: Close Media Player. Goto ‘my computer’ and plug in Sansa Express. A removable drive should now appear. Right-click and select ‘properties.’ My dead player shows 0 bytes capacity and 0 bytes free. How about you?
Try the firmware updater, ‘Sansa Updater.’ Sounds like a defective player to me, though. Good luck.
Oh, by the way, I took the battery from the dead one and glued it to the outside of my Sansa. I thought the battery life was a bit short. Inside is a 250maH Li-ion. I wired the external 400mah Li-ion in parallel. Works much better now. Real long play time.
