Sansa Mtp Drivers For Mac

Active2 years, 5 months ago

A Sansa player in MTP mode when plugged into a MAC computer will NOT be detected or recognized. MAC computers supports Sansa players in MSC mode Sansa players can only be recognized by a MAC if the USB mode on the Sansa player is set to Auto Detect or MSC. It could be beneficial not to put up with a manual up-date of the given driver, but alternatively to have a look at the complete archive searching for drivers that were corrupted by your known malfunctioning SanDisk Sansa c250 MTP USB Device. Getting your personal pc or laptop shutdown unexpectantly is among the most terrifying consequence of bad drivers, just like SanDisk Sansa c250 MTP USB Device, and really should be avoided at any expense, should you want to maintain all your information.

I am not a bash expert, but from USB standpoint you can't do this.A USB device is either the MTP class device, or Mass Storage class device.

If the device is MTP, host system needs MTP driver to operate it. File system is behind MTP wrapper.

If the device is Mass Storage, the system will load a mass storage driver.

Mobile phones used to have a manual option to change the USB mode of operation. More recently the Mass Storage option is not offered, because of high possibility of data corruption.

Of course, it is technically possible to have some proprietary switch protocol over USB to change the USB device class back and forth. To complete the switch, the device must disconnect from USB and them re-reconnect under new incarnation.
