WARNING -- PLEASE don't respond to this post without READING It first!  I need a solution specifically for the SANSA CLIP+ ZIP with it's peculiar structure.
____
I'm trying to help my mother be able to print out the folder structure of her Sansa Clip+ Zip mp3 player on her Win7 Home desktop computer. (The device connects through a usb cable.)  We can BROWSE the folders using windows explorer (under "computer"), and look at all the folders.  But we can't print them with any methods suggested so far.

The problem is that the device appears under Computer, but not with it's own letter drive. It's under device manager not as a disk drive but as a portable device.  I cannot get a DOS BOX to "go to it". And when I installed "Karen's Directory Printer", the program was unable to see the device. Finally, when I opened Windows Explorer, and BROWSED to the desired folder, and right-clicked on the subfolders, and choose "print with DirPrinter" (the integrated line from Karen's program), it gave the following error:

Karen's Directory Printer
Folder Not Found:
"::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\\\?\usb#vid_0781&pid_74d0#d505ff109297c1a80000000000000000#{6ac27878-a6fa-4155-ba85-f98f491d4f33}\SID-{10001,D505FF109297C1A8,7908491264}"
____

FYI when I browse the device in Windows Explorer, and right-click on the ADDRESS BAR, and say "copy address", and then paste it back, it shows up as:
___
Computer\Sansa Clip+ 8GB"::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\\\?\usb#vid_0781&pid_74d0#d505ff109297c1a80000000000000000#{6ac27878-a6fa-4155-ba85-f98f491d4f33}"
____


Any ideas, besides screen capture? Maybe changing this device to a proper "disk", so it gets a letter? Would that disrupt other functions?

FYI the programs she uses to manage music (Overdrive Media Console, Itunes,  WMP) don't always show what's in there. And many folders are empty.

Thx!

You must copy files out of MTP storage before printing.
