Ok it takes a while but heres the solution.
Slide the hold button to ON and hold down the REC button.While still holding the REC button,connect the USB port and wait for your PC to find it. Once it has found it type this link in to download Firm Ware. It may take a while but it is worth the wait.Once it is downloaded to your player EJECT!!! the player before disconnecting the USB port.Now just wait for it to format yor player and it should be working good as new again. =)

Cant download music
The songs need to be formatted for a sansa. Use Windows Media Player 11. Don't use Rhapsody, too many problems.
Load a CD into your computer, on the Toolbar of WMP11 click rip, After all songs are ripped, hook up your Sansa to the computer via USB cable, Click Sync. WMP11 will not only sync the sansa it will sync the micro card also. You have your choice where you want to put the music. Drag and drop the music in the box to the left where you synced your sansa and at the bottom of the box click Sync. All music will be synced to your sansa or card which ever one you chose. Understand, when the sansa starts up, the card syncs with the sansa, you don't have to do anything. Try this and let me know how it works.
