My recovery mode says "enter USB2.0 MSD mode" what do i do


Hi there.

I can understand your issue. When you say "enter USB2.0 MSD mode"getting into recovery mode. Then i'd say firmware needs to be updated..

Please follow the steps..

There are files in the player that might be corrupted causing the device to freeze and stop responding.

SOLUTION 1 - Reset 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.

SOLUTION 2 - Force MSC or Recovery mode then update to the latest firmware.

STEP 1 - Force MSC or go to Recovery mode
For e200v1/e200R (Recovery mode only): Connecting in Recovery mode

1. On your Sansa player, press and hold the Power/Menu button for 15 seconds to turn the device completely off.
2. Slide the Hold switch so the orange portion shows.
3. On your PC, double-click My Computer
4. On your Sansa player, press and hold the REC button while connecting it to the PC.
5. Release the REC button when a 16MB-FORMAT drive partition appears under My Computer.

For e200v2 (Force MSC mode only): Enabling MSC mode

1. Turn device OFF.
2. Slide the hold switch to the direction of the headphone jack so an orange color would show putting the device on Hold.
3. Press and hold the ( |<< ) button while connecting the device to the PC.

STEP 2 - Update to the latest firmware manually, as it is described in Method 2 http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/306/kw/e200/r_id/101834.

In case you have any further inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Zen stuck in recovery mode, reboot failed, firmware recovery tool downloaded and updated, reset button failed, last time this happend we had to wipe it totally off and start over, much time...


You can reset your zen by placing the pen head in the hole below the power button for 20 seconds.


Or


Attempt to slide the switch like you are shutting it down and then use a pin to reset the mode. By doing so all song could be washed out

My sansa e280 rhapsody says switch to recovery mode


Recovery mode is used to recover from a fatal error.

Follow these steps and youll be back in business.

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.





Best of Luck.

Recovery mode


Recovery mode won't help you unless you have the recovery files to go with it. Most likely you will need to re-install the firmware on to the device. Download this "recovery tool" from the SanDisk website and run it with your device connected in recovery mode. Make sure you select "format" when prompted. Tool is here; http://sandisk.com/assets/file/downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe Recovery mode - power off device. Slide "hold" switch into hold position. Press and hold "record" button and then connect to PC.(keep record button pressed until after connected to pc) Hope this helps.

HELP ME PLEASE!!!


Hi Alina. Seems like oyur Sansa E260 is experiencing some system errors. Here's a procedure you could try -- it's setting your player to the Recovery Mode and re-flashing its firmware. I hope this helps: RECOVERY MODE Switch your Sansa E260 to its Recovery Mode: 1. Make sure the player is powered off 2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface 3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button. 4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E260 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode" 5. Connect your E260 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above) 6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E260 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6. Next, Apply the firmware for the E260 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time): Step 1: Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E260 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop": http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downl... Step 2: Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred which caused the "Load Main Image Failed" notification in the first place. Step 3: When the process is complete, unplug your E260 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch Step 4: Power up your E260 and 90-99% of the time, it would boot up successfully. If not, try steps 1-4 again

Mp3 wont turn on


wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."try the Reload Firmware option from the Recovery Mode menu? It makes a huge difference!

Seeing as how you can access Recovery Mode, can perform its disk operations, and seeing as how your computer does recognize it, it seems there's a good chance it's simply firmware corruption causing your problem.
