Updating sansa firmwear
Yetl another problem occurred when I decided to upgrade the firmware.
If you are a Windows user, you are provided with a script called Sansa Update for automating the process, but in GNU/Linux you are on your own.
I only found the information here and there at various vendors.Did you buy a Sansa View only to find out that Windows Vista won't recognize it? The content of the box is: 1 Sansa View1 thin plastic wrap around the Sansa View1 usb cable1 Pair of earphones1 Rhapsody cd1 Sansa View quick guide1 cardboard box Firstly, lets explain MSC mode and MTP mode a bit.Can't update the firmware to allow Vista to recognize it? Well this instructable will help you relieve your frustrations and help you to finally use your device! This is the official explination of what mtp mode is from the Sandisk website:"MSC stands for Mass Storage Class.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. It is a Microsoft standard and is Microsoft's solution to connecting digital players and cameras to a window based platform.
