Switch USN modes in the settings menu

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 this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
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.

I formatted a sandisk sansa with a mac and it formatted everything even the os on it so how do i put it back?????


Hello,
Here's a page showing links how to reconnect the player to the MAC Operating System and how to use iTunes for the e200 series:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/229/kw/mac/p/555%2C618/r_id/101834

When the firmware on the player has been erased, a download and reinstallation of the firmware has to be performed.

The Sansa Firmware Updater can only be used on Windows based systems: So get the firmware directly from this site : http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board?board.id=e200
Check the version of your player to get the matching download.

e.g. selecting e200 v2 there's one download for America; 2 downloads for Europe, one without FM (radio) and one with FM.
Read the instructions on the sandisk forums site for the players recovery.

Need more help ? Just post a comment.

Get the software from Sandisk's website - e200 series Support - get country-specfic software - are you in a country that bans music download services? Contact Rhapsody support, or go to their country-specific page for the answer to that one
