You can try updating the firmware for the mp3 player, if available/applicable. You can also try pressing the reset button on it or reformatting it completely.

Hello,

When the Sansa Express keeps freezing you can RESET the device using next step:
note:
The device can be either on or off, player NOT connected to the computer:
Press and hold the Volume Up (+) and Select buttons simultaneously for approximately 20 seconds.

When the "rebuilding database" message keeps coming back, the player will need an update.
Use the Sansa Firmware Updater (works on Windows only) or go for the matching download on the forum:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/446/kw/database/p/555%2C662%2C687/r_id/101834
The Sansa Firmware Updater will contain the driver for the computer to perform a firmware update on your player [ METHOD 1 ].
When downloading the driver package manually, first put the driver "StMp3Rec.sys" in the correct folder on your computer. Next start the SansaExpressUpdater [ METHOD 2 ].
During this update, connection between player and the computer is based on MTP mode, Media Transfer Protocol: Drivers and software are needed to get access to the player.

The player could also be accessed in MSC mode, seeing the player as a removable disk. How to get connection in MSC mode, see next link:

"keeps saying building database and stays like that


An unwanted file (like a virus) on the player's storage could cause this problem.

A quick solution would be to run a virus scan using an Antivirus when the player is connected to the computer. If still the problem persists, try manually analyzing the files on the player. Sometimes, weird things like even a word document could stop the player from loading.

Wondering how a word document could go into a player? Just try to remember whether you used the player as a pen-drive for transferring files!

If you are not sure which files are unwanted, feel free to list out the files that's on the player. I will try my best to locate the culprit for you :)

Good luck!

Cant turn my phillips pss110 after taking it out of the computer


does the device immediately shut off after displaying the Philips boot screen? if so, the mydb internal database file may be corrupt or missing.

Get the free program "ShoqBox Buddy" and use the "rebuild database" function to see if that fixes it.
