I had to switch my clip to mcs to get it to talk to my computer. It was able to use mtp mode, but I think (not sure) that it stopped after I upgraded Windows Media Player to version 11. Now I have a problem with the Overdrive Media player. It downloads the audio books just fine, but the player will play a couple of parts and then for the rest say that the player needs to synchronize with the media player. So, I contacted Overdrive and they said the following:
We are sorry to hear that you are having trouble listening to our
titles on their Sansa Clip. The error message you are receiving is
often caused by a USB setting being changed during transfer. Our titles
are DRM-protected files and must be transferred in MTP mode. There is
another mode, MSC, which allows them to save any data on the device and
also transfer non-encrypted music and audio books. With the Sansa Clip,
these modes should change automatically.
So, how can I get my computer to recognize the player in MTP mode? Another computer will do so without any problems. Do I need to revert Windows Media Player to version 10?
Thanks for any suggestions.
