Hello.I just bough my Sansa Clip. I’m about to go back to the store and return it. My computer doesn’t show the drive
Do you have the necessary operating system components? For Windows, XP SP2 or above, with WMP 10 or above.
Otherwise (and if you don’t want to upgrade your system), try connecting in MSC mode: on the Clip, Settings/USB/MSC; or (and if the firmware is an earlier version that doesn’t have that), hold the Clip’s center button down while connecting the USB cable between Clip and computer (and, once connected, upgrade your firmware–see the sticky thread at the top of the forum).
Hope this helps–
I am a newbie, as well. When I first connected my Clip, Windows did not show it, either, even though I was running Media Player 10. I “upgraded” to WMP 11 and that solved the problem.
