Vista PC won't recognize Sansa c250

Everything is set correctly (MSC)…downloaded the firmware updater and the **bleep** thing isn’t recognizable. I’ve searched everywhere for a fix…I can not get this computer to recognize the device…Sandisk firmware updater won’t work at all!!


Anyone have any ideas about this, or am I asking the wrong people??

Not to bug out on you, but I’m not sure how many people around here are running Vista and have run into this.  It may be a problem for Sansa support:
