I have a quick and painless solution for you.

First open your mp3 player and go to settings. Under the USB menu change it to MSC. Then plug in the mp3 player to the computer. Open the My Computer on your desktop, right click on the Sansa mp3 player and click Format. Make sure Fat32 is checked and Quick format is UNchecked. Then format the mp3 player. After that it should be clean and work just like a USB drive.

Hope this helps!

Sync Notice


This usually indicates that the content you are trying to listen to has digital rights associated with the media. This woud normally be the case if the content was downloaded via a subscrition service such as Napster or Rapsody, which means you are basically "renting" the song instead of buying it. In order to validate that the subscription for that media is still valid (i.e. you have paid for the subscription) you must sync the device with the service on a periodic basis. For example, with NapsterToGo you must sync a device at least every 30 days to validate the subscription.

I try to listen to one particular song, but Sansaclip 2gb freezes


Epsilon - delete that one song and see if the other songs play fine

unschool:
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.

Convert and only load Mp3 format songs - WMA's are way too problematic - you will keep getting annoying msgs like this every month. Read my two-part article on song formats under my profile to get a detailed explanation for why it is doing that.

Synchroniz


Do you have a subscription with Rhapsody or Napster?

If so, you need to log in for them to update your account, which will solve it.

If not, did you use your own music from CD's? Did you use Windows Media Player to copy the music to the computer? Did you change the default settings in Windows Media Player?

If so, the default settings for WMP are to "copy protect my music", which will give you this error. You will need to change the RIP Music settings in WMP. Tools>Options> un-check the copy protect my music option. You will then need to delete all the music you previously copied to the device and ti your PC an copy them again with theis new setting in place.

Finally, if you have the "Rhapsody" version, there is pre-loaded music on it that if not deleted, will cause this problem. You can format the device to remove the pre-loaded music, or manually delete it from the System folder.

Please add to the question if that didnt work.


Best of Luck.

Try a "hard reset". Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds to shut off. With the device off, press and hold the vol + and the center select button. Power it back on, see if that works. You can add to the question if you have more questions. Best of Luck.

MP3 HOW DO I PUT SONGS ON IT


first of all, find yourself a good music download site, limewire.com is excellent. then download all of your favorite songs. go to library click on "explore". when the share folder comes up click on "organize" then "select all". when the little pages turn blue right click one of them and then left click "add to windows media player". the media player will come on playing your first song (normal). click on "sync" then click "sync now playing". you can check progress by going to the media library and clicking on the sansa c140 in the sidebar. hopefully you will be jamming before long. oh! do not unplug your device until it says it's ok on the media player or you click stop sync.;)
