I have a Sansa Clip (and a Sansa Clip+) that I have owned for several years. Suddenly it will not mount when plugged into a USB port (any port) on either of my two Windows 7 PCs.
The first PC is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1.
The second (laptop) PC is running Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit SP1.
The Sansa Clip has its USB setting set to “MSC”.
When I connect the Sansa Clip to a USB port the Sansa will start from the “off” state and will indicate that it is being charged (via the USB port). However, the device does not mount and is NOT visible in either the “Devices and Printers” display or the “Portable Devices” under the Device Manager. I have the same result on both PC’s.
The Sansa Clip+ has no problems and mounts perfectly on both PC’s.
I have tried the alternative settings to “MSC” but there is still no connection.
The Sansa Clip worked fine until several days ago when I went away for Xmas. When I came home it has stopped working.
It seems that maybe the USB connection on the Sansa Clip is broken.
Any help would be appreciated.
