Default How to force MSC mode on XP with WMP 10

WMP 10 and 11 come with MTP drivers which take precedence over MSC. Unistalling WMP 10 (restoring 9) should remove the MTP drivers. If however, you want to keep WMP 10, it's possible to uninstall just the MTP drivers (i.e, WMP Portable Device Support). Standard disclaimers ... backup ... system restore ... blah ... risk ... blah
  1. run "RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\inf\WPD10.inf,DefaultUninstall"
    this is the uninstall for the WMP Portable Device Support, it leaves a few things behind which are removed in steps 3-5
  2. reboot
  3. delete folders:
  4. delete files:
  5. delete registry key:
    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servi ces\WpdUsb"
  6. plug it in, if drives don't show up (this will happen if you've already used it in MTP mode)
  7. go to device manager (check View->show hidden devices, just in case)
  8. locate the Sansa device, it should have the yellow exclamation on it
  9. uninstall it, through context menu
  10. unplug, plug back in
  11. now it should be installed as an MSC device and two removable drives will show up
