These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to the Sandisk website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out.
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

1) You need to set the "tags" in the music files ... artist, album and song name. I would suggest opening up the files in MediaMonkey, which will let you edit the tags.

2) After you download the podcasts with MediaMonkey, you need to find out where they exist on your disk. Then, copy them to your Clip using Windows Explorer.

I can't download music to my San Disk 1GB MP3 player that I got for Christmas. I did not get a manual with it.


To put music on your Sansa e250 you will do this:
Download Windows Media Player 9 or 10 to your computer. I would use Media Player 10 as it is the newer player. After you download Media Player 9 or 10 open it up on your computer, and then hook up your mp3 player, it should be recognized by Media Player and then you can transfer the songs to it. You need to put the music cd in your computer cd player and download the songs to Media Player using Windows Media Player 9 or 10. I have also included a website where you can download the user manual, it will say e200, but the instructions are also for the e250. Good Luck, I hope this helps. Please rate me, Thank You.

DOES NOT RECOGNIZE PLAYER WHEN CONNECTED


ive got the new version of the sony sonic stage downloaded onto my laptop,and when i plug my player into my laptop via usb cable,the player itself is recognized straight away as a harddrive/removable disk etc,and you have to transfrer music onto the player as from sonic stage music library,and you also have to creatate you own music library via sonic stage,and u can also transfer music from your own music library wich you use via windows media player,and also u can transfer a cd into you sony sonic stage music libraty,and this is similar to when your using the windows media player as to rip a cd or transfer music onto an mp3 player,as i use all diffrent types of mp3 players myself,and i find the archos gmini sx 202 player to be pretty awesome player,as ive got to of them as well,and i use windows media player as to transfer music files onto them,and i cannot transfer any music files onto the sony ones via windown media player as those music file wont show up on the player at all,and ive tried this myself,and it will only work via sony sonic stage.

How do i download music to my San Disk Sansa clip MP3 player?


You shold be able to sync the Sansa to your media player on your computer by just connecting the supplie dthe cable to the USB port and open windows media player. If you are just trying to dump songs on to it then all you need do is connect the sansa and go to my computer find the new device, open the device and copy your music from the folder you hvae it in and drop it directly to it. The Sansa is not like the I Pods that use software to sync music. Basically it is like a flash drive (thumb Drive) or a hard drive.

Sandisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player problem


The songs that are on there were probably taken from the Rhapsody music service, or some other subscription music service. You must continue/renew the subscription to be able to continue playing them on the Sans clip.
