Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player
A friend was messing with my Sansa one day and didn't know what 'format' did under the 'settings' menu so he decided to see what it did. -_- He reformatted it and all of my songs were gone. I tried re-adding them using Rhythmbox Music Player on Ubuntu. All of the songs are on the device but they don't show up under the 'music' section in the menu. I tried adding them with simply copying the files using the file browser and they still won't show up. Then I decided to try Rhythmbox again but my computer stopped seeing the device. In addition to that the Sansa won't charge anymore. It says 'connected' but its not charging and the computer doesn't see it. Is there a way I can fix this problem or can I trade it in for a new one?
Here's what happened - when he pressed format, the only OS that the device recognizes is a Windows system - you lost the Ubuntu formatting. You can try performing a firmware upgrade on the player, uninstalling all existing Sansa software from your computer, and then reinstalling the software and replugging the player into the computer.
