1

Check the orange "Hold" switch on the left side of the Sansa C150, if you cannot turn on the MP3 player or if none of the buttons is working. When the "Hold" switch is up, the buttons are disabled. Slide the "Hold" switch down to activate the buttons again.
2

Press and hold the "Power" button until the LCD screen lights up when turning on the MP3 player. Pressing the button quickly does not turn on the device. The "Power" button is located on the front of the device, under all the other control buttons.
3

Replace the AAA battery, if you cannot power on your MP3 player. To replace the battery, remove the battery cover from the back of the device by pressing in on its tab and pulling it off. Remove the old battery, insert the new battery and replace the cover. One AAA battery provides approximately 15 hours of power for your Sansa C150.
4

Change the backlight settings to conserve battery life. This is useful if you find the battery loses power quickly during normal use of your Sansa C150. To change the backlight settings, choose "Settings" to bring up the "Settings" menu. Select "Display," "Backlight" and then a shorter backlight time. The backlight will shut off after a period of inactivity that matches your backlight setting.
5

Review your music purchases to understand what rights you've purchased to the content, if you are unable to play a track back on your Sansa C150. When you purchase music, it comes with certain rules for how you can store and play it. You may not have paid for the right to transfer the song to a portable media player.
6

Reset the Sansa C150 if it acts erratically or if you have other problems. To reset the device, open the "Settings" menu and choose "Reset All." Choose "Save" to finish restoring the MP3 player to its factory default settings. If you decide not to reset the device during this process, select "Cancel" instead of "Save."

Just to be clear,most players require no special drivers. MSC mode will work out of the box with just about any MP3 player and any OS (W*ndows Linux). MTP mode will work as long as you have WMP 10 or 11 installed. Firstly, I will try to explain MSC mode and MTP mode and what they mean. MSC stands for Mass Storage Class. When your player is in this mode, the computer will see it the same way it would see a Thumb drive or flash drive, as a removable disk. It will assign the first available drive letter to your device, as well as one for the memory card (if it uses one and it is installed). This is probably the more popular of the 2 modes, and is a more "open source" type of standard. Most computers detect the player in this mode without a problem very well and right away.
MTP stands for Media Transfer Protocol. It is a Microsoft standard and is Microsoft's solution to connecting MP3 players and cameras to a w*ndow based Computer. MTP mode must be used in order to transfer ANY Digital Rights Management (DRM) protected content. MP3's downloaded form services like Rhapsody and Napster will only function in this MTP mode.
Most good MP3 players will have both of these modes at the users options.
Although not all do, so it is a good idea to check yours for these settings if you are having connection problems
NOTE: Any songs added to your player in MSC mode will not be available in MTP mode and vise-a-versa. In other words You can't see the files added in the other mode and you can not play them. You know you have some files on your player and can not find them now, you may have to change modes so they are available. Some players in the SanDisk line up use Instead, an "Auto Detect" function that is suppose to Automaticly use MTP mode. If MTP mode does not work for any reason, it should default to MSC mode.
To use MSC or MTP modes go to your players settings.
These settings will vary based on player model and you might have to refer to your users Manual. Check their web site for a download in PDF form. Turn the player on, if it is not already Navigate to the main menu of your player; this is the same menu that gives us options such as Play, Record, Info, etc... Navigate to "Settings" on the main menu of the player. After navigating to "Settings", you should see an option that states "USB" or "USB MODE" From here we can select MSC or MTP modes (could vary based on player model) Highlight the desired mode and select it, at this point it will roll back to the 'Settings' menu Connect the player to your computer and verify it is connecting in the desired mode. It should be noted, when a device is in MSC mode, it will appear as a "Removable disk". When connected in MTP mode, it will show up as an "Audio Device".
Now most players now days can and will use`MS W*ndows Media Player. You can also try to reinstall W*ndows Media Player 10 or 11 Next W*ndows has a update to fix if all else fails try this link. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A2E73160-E862-4F19-BB26-C0CAFE798955&displaylang=en

Sorry but there are no specific drivers on the CD for this player. I've had this player since '05 and was trying to get it installed under Windows Vista with only limited success. This player seems to work best with Win XP.

The c150 has two modes of operation MSC and MTP. In MSC mode Windows recognizes the player as a flash drive. You create folders using Windows Explorer just like you do on any hard drive and then copy your music files into the folders. The second mode (MTP) works with a music player such as Rhapsody or Windows Media Player (ver. 10 or higher). SanDisk bundled Rhapsody on their CD and I just installed it (today) on my Vista PC and it seems to work OK. Any files dropped on the player in MTP mode are invisible to the music player running in MSC mode. However, all files added to the player, regardless of the mode used, are visible as one big happy list when you use the player.

You set the mode you want to use before plugging the player into a USB port by going to "menu/settings/USB" on the player then choose either MSC or Auto Detect (defaults to MTP).

SanDisk has very little tech support info about this player on it's web site. I hope this is helpful.
