Sansa updater won't run.

Suddenly the updater won't load. I ditched it, downloaded another copy(the latest I could find) and that one won't run either. This happened simultaneously with my Clip not being recognized by my computer when connected(nothing happens).

Suggestions?:

Re: Sansa updater won't run.

I believe the Sansa Firmware Updater software will only launch once it has detected a Sansa device. If your Sansa is not being recognized by the computer the software will not launch.

 

You might wanna start with this Knowledgebase Article about Sansa not recognized by the computer.

Forget about the updater. Just update the firmware manually. Manually updating the firmware is so simple. Just follow the instructions.
