How to fix a sandisk fat is corrupted please recover fat


You could try the following:

Start with the Clip turned OFF. Slide the power switch down to the HOLD position. Press and HOLD the center button depressed until it is recognized by the PC- give it a few seconds.

The Clip's display will state "connected" with the device now in MSC mode.

You can now repair the File Allocation Table (FAT) using Windows' chkdsk utility.

Open My Computer and find the Clip a listed under "devices with removable storage" as a flash drive. Let's say it displays as E: SANSA CLIP for example. Our assigned drive letter is E:

From the Run box under Start, enter cmd and press Enter. You will get a DOS window.

Enter chkdsk E: /f and press Enter. The /f toggle tells the utility to fix the errors.

After clicking on the Safely Remove icon in the taskbar, or right clicking on the Clip and selecting Eject, unplug the Clip.

Try powering it up again, and see if all is well.

Should I let the battery on my SanDisk Clip MP3 player run out completely before recharging for longer battery life? I've heard different answers. Some say it doesn't make a difference; others say...


It does not make any difference with these lithium batteries.
In the older Nickle cadium batteries, it does. It gets a memory effect, if you charge them from a half charges state.

My computer is not recognizing the sansa clip, I am unable to recharge the device anymore, and it does not appear in my drivers. I have retried loading the disk and nothing happens...please help!


Have you tried going to settings, then system settings and changing the usb mode? I have had some computers not recognize my device and this has helped. MSC should be he default mode and your device should show as a drive. The MTP is for DRM management. I have also had a clip that did this and my usb cable was bad.
