    When I connect my sansa to the computer a box used to come up that said what do u want windows to do

    Play in windows media player

    open folder

    no action

    But now that i connect it the box doesn't pop up. I click my computer, I click on the sansa icon which changed for some reason, click on music, and it freezes! I disconect the mp3 player and its fine. I can still hear the songs on the mp3 player but it wont open the folder in which the music is in. It only has the folder with pictures and videos, but no music.

    HOW TO FIX SanDisk Sansa e250 REFRESH DATABASE!!!! If this occurs you have downloaded a song that locks up the Sansa, so remove that song or add a song at a time then after each disconnect and it will refresh until you come to the song that creates the problem - solution is simple, don't add that song. No need to Format or Reset to Factory settings ------ this works everytime!

Take a paper clip and reset in on the bottom of the payer.

Or rather than wait reset it by using a sharp object (end of a paperclip) to hit the \'reset\' at the bottom of the machine.

There\'s a little area at the bottom that says, reset, you take a thumbtack, and just pop it in! It will be back to working condition without losing files with no problems!

I\'ve been through that before. I just pressed the restart button at the bottom. When I turned it back on (thinking now I have to download all the songs again) all the songs and pictures were still there!!

Posted on Jan 16, 2007

I had the same problem except it wouldn\'t turn on after I transferred some songs. The reset button was the fix. I would have never known!

The problem with what your saying, Big and Rich, no offense, but after using one of these mp3 playerS for a year, you will know that it doesn\'t have a rechargeable lithium ion battery...it takes 1AAA battery for up to 17 hours, I believe it is, so you need to reformat the Mp3 player.

Hi

I just have this problem too. It also occured too me before, but the first time I let them(from where I bought)fix it. This last time the garanty was over. You plug the mp3 player in to your computer and format it, if u have some mp3 files on it, do copy them to your harddisk. Then u download the firmware of samsungs site of this mp3 player. You follow the instructions and ur mp3 player is fixed. I have put this message earlier in this problem.

For Flamino 512mb mp3 player, there would be a small hole right near to the head phone socket. It is a very small hole tht resembles the hole in a CD player tht s used to eject a CD incase if it get stuck. That small hole has to be pricked slightly so tht it gets restarted.

A General Info : Any Digital or Electronic device that has no option for the user to interact with the battery( molded battery devices..) will have a small hole for the system to restart. Guy\'s juzz check this out !

I have a WaveX Digital WV-830C, which identifies itself as an SR-M800F when connected to the PC via USB, so apparently it\'s a rebranded Safa (looks identical to Safa pics I\'ve seen too, other than case color). On the side of the player without the record & hold buttons should be a tiny little hole. If you stick a pin or better yet an unbent paper clip into this hole, you will be able to press a reset button that should reset the device if it ever locks up.

Hi, I had the same problems with mine. I called ipod tech support and they walked me through a few steps and we learned that it was the virus protection software that is freezing the computer, I had it go to a blue screen/safe mode all the time until I was able to "back door" the anti-virus software. So check your anti-virus protection, mine is McAffee - the ipod folks told me that they are getting a large number of calls re: this kind of problem.

Hope this helps.

You can also open the battery compartment and disconnect the battery, wait a few minutes and reconnect the battery.

Freezing


dmerunka,

hi, just want to ask if, before you've dowloaded song to your mp3 have you scan it for possible virus? it's adviceable to scan 1st all dowloaded song before transferring to mp3 player for some of it have imbeded malware and virus. most common virus is the brontok which will freeze your played files then shut it off.

try to download " ESET nod32" anti virus and scan your mp3 for possible virus infection. NOD32 have a free trial and can still work even if the trial period expired.

cheers,
mark

I Google'd a way to reset it and it says that you have to hold the power button down for like 15 seconds and then it will reset. Apparently the freezing is pretty common, buts its still an over all good Mp3 player.

Sansa disk e 260


I had the same problem with mine freezing. It happened when I kept pressing the back track button (on left side) to go back to an earlier song. It then froze in the middle of a song, couldn't hear the song, the time of the song was frozen, etc., and the unit stayed lit, despite pressing all the buttons. I tried holding down power but nothing happened. I read another person's post that you need to hold it down 15-30 seconds. I did this and it worked, you just have to hold it down until it shuts down, which was about 15 seconds as suggested, could be longer for others.
For me, next time I wont keep clicking the tracks repeatedly, I'll simply go out of the song and back to the song I want through the menu.
Thank you for the good posts. Glad I didn't have to mess with the battery like others....
