downloadable software?

I had recently moved and lost my disc.  My Sansa View isn't being recognized as a program in the 'My Computer' screen anymore.  Is there a site I could download the software the View comes with?  Otherwise, my player is a $130(ish) paperweight.

You don't need any software for the View.

Then get the latest firmware. If you don't want to, hold down the left button while plugging in to change automatically.
