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.

Can't get my phone connect to my PC via usb have


You have to install Samsung Studio on your pc.
If you are just going to transfer music and movies, mass storage will do.
You may also opt to get a memory card reader, insert the memory card there then transfer music and videos and other files.

This option allows you to transfer music files from your PC. In order to use this option, you must install V CAST Music with Rhapsody on your PC. 1. Open V CAST Music with Rhapsody software. Don’t have V CAST MUSIC with Rhapsody software? Download it for free at www.verizonwireless.com/music. 2. Install the device USB drivers before connecting your phone to a PC. USB Cable and Device Drivers can be purchased separately via the Music Essentials Kit compatible with this device. 3. From the main screen on your phone, the SYNC MUSIC V CAST MOBILE PHONE display appears. Your phone should display the message: Connected. Connection may take a few seconds. 4. Drag and drop the song(s) you want to sync from My Library, to your V CAST Music with Rhapsody mobile phone, listed under the Sources tab. Once synchronization is complete, press the END/Power Key and disconnect the USB cable (purchased separately). 5. Under the Music & Tones menu, open My Music to view and play your music. • A compatible USB cable (sold separately) is required for syncing. • Music can also be purchased via V CAST Music with Rhapsody through your PC.
Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Music not synchronized


Try going to the actual file the music is in on your computer, then right click Send To sansa 250. If that doesn't work look on the options menu for USB mode and change it, that works on my 280.

Sansa 250 - Having problems downloading music?


You could try opening the folder(s) with your saved music and highlight all the ones you want to transfer to your mp3 player and then right click on one of the highlighted files, left click on Copy, then go to My Computer > Sansa e250 mp3 player should be listed in there, double click on it, then right click in a open white area and left click Paste. It should copy the music right to your player. You could also try using Rhapsody and import your music into it. I use Rhapsody for transferring music to my e250 Sansa mp3 player.
