    What you will have to do is to format the device...Once you format it you should be fine...

    Let me know if you have additional questions...

  • Jean Sintulaire Sep 12, 2008

Sansa pmp recovery tool


The Sansa Connect Recovery Tool can be used to reformat and install firmware version 1.2.0.53385 to a Sansa Connect. This version is used in the current selling Sansa Connect products.

If for some reason device becomes unstable and resetting and erasing content doesn't resolve the issue, the Sansa Connect Recovery Tool would clean up your device and restore it to factory settings

2 things to check before starting the Recovery Mode and to use the Recovery Tool:

- First, charge the Sansa Connect for at least 20 minutes using the AC charger to ensure this is not a battery depletion problem.

- Second, hold the power button for 8-10 seconds to ensure the device is turned OFF.

After these steps, you can put the Sansa Connect into Recovery Mode and use the Recovery Tool.

Doesn't start


try resetting the unit. press down on the power/menu button for 15 seconds, and when the pinwheel turns off, wait ten seconds, the turn it on with the HOLD icon in place, and push and hold the record button while it turns on. this will usually bring you to the recovry mode. then you must plug your sandisk onto you rcomputer, and wait for it to tell you when to unplug it. I f this does not work, go to the store that you got it from, and tell them. They will usually happily replace it, but if they don't, then call sandisk, press four for MP3 SUPPORT, and talk to them about it.
