Re: Enabling mass storage class support on the Sansa's originalfirmware?

Hi Aman,
I asked a friend with a Sansa to go through it and give me the info.
First, you are always placed at the same spon when booting into sansa
firmware. Also, menues wrap. When you first boot, press right >r{ once
to enter settings menu.
Then press up arrow (12:00) once to get to usb and press right arrow
to activate.
Since this menu contains only two options by defalt when you enter
this menu for the first time you should be on the music player
setting. Menus wrap so press either up or down arrow to select the
mass storage option. Press the center to save and exit usb menu.
Press left arrow to get out of settings.
This should do what you want to do.
I don't have one of these, but a sighted person helped me with this.
Rusty
