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.

Okaay , so my mp3 just stop working it dosent turn all at all I was recording a song on the radio which you can do with my rca m4304-A mp3 can do and i have to press the power button so it can stop...


Hello,

When the M4304 keeps shutting off all the time, you did well by trying to charge the player: 3 hours of charging the battery, with the player connected to a running computer, should be long enough to charge to full capacity.
1. Check the HOLD switch ( ) on the rear: move the switch away from the padlock sign.
2. RESET the player: hold the Menu button ( ) for more than 10 seconds.

I have sansa sandisk e 260. last time, after charging it in my computer, i plug it out without having safety mode in the computer. After then i can not open my disk. when i try to turn on pressing on Menu...


1. Download the Sansa firmware.

2. Turn the player off.

3. On the top of the player is a Hold switch located.
Move it to the right so you see "Orange".

4. On the left hand side of the player is a Record button.
Press and hold the record button while connecting the player to the computer.
Continue holding the Record button until you see a new icon under "My Computer": named "16MB FORMAT".
Once you see that icon release the Record button.

5. Drag and drop the download firmware files to your player (16MB FORMAT).

6. Disconnect the player from USB cable.
Several things will be displayed.
When you see Key Lock, System Shutdown, move the Hold switch on the top back to the left.

Otherwise download the Sansa Updater and start follow the points 2-4 and start the Sansa Updater.
After updating the firmware follow point 6.

Stuck


Try holding down the power button for 10 seconds to reset it. if this does not work you need to go onto Sansa's website and download the updater and upgrade the firmware. Let me know if this works or not, if not I will look into it a little further.

My rio used to say upgrator and now its not turning on at all.


I think when you hit the on/off power button (on top near outlet for headphones) AND hit the menu button (on side below volume dial) at same time...it puts the Rio CE2100 into "Upgrader" mode aka "Recovery" mode. From what I've found online, basically, the firmware to the device is deleted. Trying to reinstall firmware, or reflash the device is nearly impossible. The tiny hole near the earphones is for resetting the device--use a needle (about the only thing that will fit-ouch)...but that only lets you turn it on/off if u get stuck. The tiny hole on face near display is where audio recording mic WOULD be if Rio CE2100 had one. If ANYONE knows how to escape "Recovery mode" or "Upgrader" mode please share. This is a common final result for many owners of this otherwise great mp3 player. There is some notation in online help site that says ce2100 requires 500mA from USB and says u can go to Device manager, check ur USB Root Hub, check Power tab to see how much power is being supplied to the device. Mine said 100mA, and doesn't work...but I don't know how to resolve this. =) Maybe tomorrow...or just wait for sales post-christmas. =)
