For videos, use media converter

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.

If I hit the reset button on my mp3 player to un-freeze it, will I lose my current music on it?


Hi Stacey,
Using the reset button of an mp3 player will not cause loss of music or other media files.
I hope you can un-freeze it in this way but in my opinion the problem could be solved in few cases.
Thanks.

Hello,

Check the bottom of your player, you should find a reset hole, dip a pin into the hole and your player should reset. After your player is reset, it should stop freezing.

When you the player is in the process of resetting, it might show "rebuilding" and might take sometime, but don't be scared after a while the player should boot up.

Take care.

Just freezes when you get the album or track i'm after,and can only be fixed with a reset where the problem is recreated again.


If your using a music sharing website like Limewire, Utorrent, or anything else it may be a bad file and you device can't open it.

Bad Track


You will probably have to reformat the player, but the "bad track" message could also be caused if the songs you are trying to download have an expired DRM license.

Sansa music transfer problem


Thats probably the best idea to erase everything and start anew. You can format the device in My Computer>Device Name (e250)>Right Click on it and select Format. This will erase everything on your device. If you are getting Bad Track from just a few songs, just delete them as they may be corrupt. Also, you need to keep some free space on the device to create the database. Keep at least 6MB free for every GB. Best of Luck.
