Frozen at start update

Hi I purchased the c150 a few days ago and have been uploading music onto it over the past few days. after uploading some songs it has now frozen on the screen that says "Start Update BrowseDB" I have tried taking the battery out and starting it up again but it doesnt do anything because it freezes at this screen right after the SanDisk intro screen. I've tried pluggin it into the computer but that doesnt do anything and the computer wont recognise it when its plugged in. any help will be greatly apprecited - Dale

    I'm having the same problem... It won't start, it just gets frozen on the Sandisk screen. After a long while, it says something like: restore DB Browser. However,I can't do anything because my computer won't recognize it!!! What should I do now?

    I just turned it on after playing it and the Sandisk logo came on and then it went to the song I was listening to and froze. I also have tried taking the batttery out and reconnecting it to the computer. So far nothing works.

The secret to treating brain damage on the c150 is to definitely use the <http://www.sendspace.com/file/7ge9cr> download. This is a *.rar file and you need to also download the 7zip freeware program to extract the contents of the file to a folder. Read the *.txt message in the folder and follow the directions and you will be back in business. Your c150 will probably occasionally have a relapse so keep the folder on your computer. This works!

I also have this problem.
It is completly frozen..as in it will not do anything except stay on one screen. Its not only when you download Ken.
It does not respond to my computer either


Someone from another site suggested i i download this
http://www.sendspace.com/file/7ge9cr


but i can't figure out how to make it work.
I'm really not good with technology.

I called sandisk and emailed them.
It has been a week since i emailed and have not gotten a response.
And when i called all i got was a recording telling me to email them!!!
I am so frustrated.

It's normal.i'm experiencing that everytime i download new songs coz your memory is updating the new content/tracks in it. you just have to wait maybe 1-2 minutes... it depends on how many songs you put in it.

My computer wont recognize my USB


Hi,

Try the following steps:

Resetting the device:
1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button.
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.

NOTE: Resetting will turn the player off while it is frozen.

If that doesn't work, then you may download and install the Sansa Firmware Updater and update to the latest firmware.

Sandisk 240 1.0 gb


I had this same problem. What I ended up doing was going into My Computer into the device itself and seeing what showed up. It appears a few new songs I popped on there the day after were appearing but nothing else. I deleted all the files, unplugged it from the computer and let the library update, old songs were still playing. Plugged it back into the machine and voila they showed up.
