Hi. Let me first say I followed board etiquetty by checking other threads, but everyone elses problems don’t seem to be as grand as mine!
I am using a year old laptop running XP SP2, and am having mad problems getting the Sansa Clip to work on it. When I plug the lil sucker in, i get the “bing” noise, and the little icon saying new hardware found, however there is an error of no driver suitable to run it. When i tried on my mums brand new Vista laptop, the computer just went on the internet and merrily found the driver and it was charging within minutes. I can get it to do absolutely zilch. The screen lights up, but the battery doesnt flash, it’s just solid, and then when I unplug after an hour, say, I get a few moments of battery life before it conks out.
I know my computer must be able to power this thing with the appropriate driver. Where can I get this? I have to say Sandisk’s site is pretty unhelpful with this. I found a page with a list of drivers, but none of them link anywhere!
Can someone please help me with this? P.S. I downloaded WMP11 and that didnt help as when I went to the sync screen it said no device connected. Aaarggh!!!
