E260V2 is not recognized by PC

My Sansa for some reason is not regonized by the computer (a Windows Vista Home Basic) but still charges. I look through the computer and can’t seem to find anything that says that the MP3 is connented. Even the Sana Updater recognized.

Any ideas to solving this?

Change the USB (under Settings/System Settings) to MSC and see if it is recognized. MTP mode is more temperamental, and may require a reinstall of Windows Media Player. 

If that doesn’t work, try getting a new cord. Possibly the charging pins are connecting while the data pins are not.
