I bought my Sansa Clip+ MP3 Player several years ago, and have always plugged in into my Windows XP computer to transfer MP3’s and charge the battery. After a couple of years of no updates and misc. other Windows XP and hardware problems, I finally decided to buy a new computer a and installed Windows 7 on it. Naturally, I have had some transition problems, such as 32 bit software not working properly, or at all on the new 64 bit system. Most of that I found work arounds for. But one problem remains… The new system doesn’t connect properly to the Clip+. It connects well enough to look like it’s charging, but I think it just drains the battery. Or at least I thought it did the first time I plugged it in, but I’m not really sure. I am sure that it is not showing up as a drive like it did in XP and I can’t transfer files to it in Windows 7.
So my question is, what can I do to solve this problem? I read somewhere, but now can’t seem to figure out where I read it, that the Clip+ is set up for XP and that is the problem. So how to I set it up for Windows 7? I installed the firmware updater on the new computer, but since Windows 7 doesn’t register it properly, the updater doesn’t either.
If anyone has any ideas, I would appreate hearing them…
Thanks in advance!
