    Power button reset has no effect
    Can't remove battery. Have no idea how to take it apart.
    "Sansa Clip Overview' says the rechargeable batteries are no replaceable, which leads me to
    believe that they(or it) is solder in place.
    Did manage to remove the plastic 'clip'.

    thanks

Slide and hold the power switch up for about 20 seconds to reset the player. Then power on the unit. If the error is still there, connect the unit to your computer and attempt to save all of your files so you can reformat. I would also upgrade the firmware if you don't have the latest.

Hi Dr. Hook
Did you mount the scandisk? The Linux machine might have mounted it and when you just remove it, then some software still stay on the scandisk. Insert the scandisk into the Linux machine again and umount it (unmount). Then plug it into a real computer :-), find the drive and look indside to find and delet what you dont need.

Plug your SanDisk back in the usb port. Then go to my computer, find the drive that contains your SanDiisk. Open the drive and see what is installed. Remove anything that you didn't personally place there. Sometimes by just connecting the device your computer might have installed files by default Or your player didn't recognize how much space it really had until you plugged and it updated itself.

OK PEOPLE!! have asked this same question over and...am getting the run around...please don't make me continue asking for help with this question. its a sandisk mp3 mini clip, and this issue is getting any...


Use SanDisk MP3 Players
SanDisk is an electronic device manufacturer that creates various types of MP3 players under the SanDisk Sansa product line.
The SanDisk MP3 players range in storage capacity, starting at 512mb, and are intended to operate on the Windows operating system.
Most SanDisk MP3 players also include a built-in video player with a color screen, an FM radio tuner, and a memory flash card slot to expand the MP3 player's storage capacity.
Use SanDisk MP3 players to take your computer's MP3 library with you and listen to music wherever you go.

1. Verify that your computer meets the operating specifications required to sync the SanDisk MP3 player with the PC.
All SanDisk MP3 players require Windows XP or later; Windows Media Player; and a USB 1.0 port. A USB 2.0 is important if you want high-speed music syncing.
2, Check that the SanDisk MP3 player has a full battery charge.
All SanDisk MP3 players have a rechargeable lithium ion battery, and some SanDisk devices have a replaceable battery.
The battery icon on the top right-hand side of the SanDisk MP3 player's screen displays the current status of the battery's charge.
If the battery is low, recharge it before using the SanDisk player for the first time.
To charge, connect the player to your computer's powered USB port using the included USB cable.
The SanDisk player's screen will display a yellow charging icon.
Unplug when charging is complete.

3. To turn on the SanDisk MP3 player for the first time, unlock the "hold" switch on the top of the MP3 player by sliding it so that the orange tab does not appear.
Then, press the "power button" once.
Wait for the SanDisk MP3 player to respond.
The thumbweel of the player will flash a light and the screen will turn on to display the player's menu options.
Turn off the SanDisk player by holding down the player's power button for two seconds.
Wait for the screen to display "Goodbye" before releasing the button.
4. Practice resetting the SanDisk MP3 player to solve critical software errors and to fix the MP3 player if it freezes.
To reset the player, hold down the power button for fifteen seconds.
This resets the MP3 player to its original factory settings and can help resolve any problems you encounter while using the SanDisk MP3 player.
5. Connect the SanDisk MP3 player to your computer using the included USB cable.
Once the computer has sensed the connected device, the SanDisk player's screen will display "Connected" and the SanDisk Portable Media Player will be listed under Other in your computer's My Computer window.
6. Add music to the SanDisk MP3 player.
Double-click the Portable Media Player listed in the My Computer window.
Double-click the Music folder.
Select the MP3 files that you wish to load onto the MP3 player and drag them into the Music folder.
The player will load them into its internal memory and make them available for playback once the device is disconnected from the computer.
7. Sync your MP3 song playlists from Windows Media Player to the SanDisk MP3 player.
Create a playlist in Windows Media Player and connect the SanDisk MP3 player to your computer (see Step 5).
Once its connected, Windows will display a dialog box. In the box, click "Sync digital media files to this device."
In the next window, click Set Up Sync. In the menu, click Personal Playlists and then select the playlists that you wish to transfer to the SanDisk player.
Click the Add button then push the Finish button to transfer your Windows Media Player playlists to the MP3 player.

Sansa m230 not syncing music files or downloading them. Process leaves the Sansa m230 with 0 files and i am finding it impossible to load new file(s) ?


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. Then add music this way and see if it is works: 1. Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer. 2. Wait for your computer to find and recognize the player. This may take a few moments. Once you receive a confirmation message, open your computer and scan the icons for the SanDisk MP3 player. 3. Open the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player on your computer. The music files that you currently have saved to the player?s memory are displayed. 4. Open a folder containing music files that is stored in your desktop computer?s memory. Scan the files for songs that you want to transfer to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player. 5. Left-click on a song file and drag to the SanDisk Sansa window. Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list. 6. Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.

Check to make sure you stll have your driver for the player on your computer. If that does not work try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. After doing this if you still cant add music on your player try loading it this way: 1. Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer. 2. Wait for your computer to find and recognize the player. This may take a few moments.

Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list. 6. Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.

How do i charge my sansa mp3?


  • Step 1:Plug the appropriate end of the USB link cable that came with your SanDisk MP3 player into the MP3 player itself. The port for this cable can be found on the right side of most models of SanDisk MP3 players.
  • Step 2:Plug the other end of the USB link cable into a free USB port on your computer. This will effectively connect your SanDisk MP3 player to your computer.
  • Step 3:Turn your computer on. This will cause your SanDisk MP3 player to automatically begin drawing power from the computer and charging its battery. On the screen, an indicator light will flash yellow while the player is charging.
  • Step 4:Disconnect the cable from both your MP3 player and your computer when the device has finished charging. You will be able to tell when the charge is complete when the indicator light that previously was flashing yellow appears as solid green.

    Won't start--No Sandisk display.


    Download and install the firmware updater.
    If that doesn't resolve, your player may really have a hardware issue. The battery is not replaceable by the consumer. My reccomendation is to exchange it with the store. If that fails, redeem your warranty through Sandisk (hope you saved your receipt).

    CHARGING A 1 DAY USED SANDISK SANSA MP3 4G


    Run the Sansa Recovery Tool from Sandisks' website and start over from scratch. Usually this problem is caused by trying to transfer too many songs at once, but any number of Rhapsody errors could have caused this.

    E280 not charging


    You might have to get a new charger--But be careful. If the charger isn't made especially for the Sansa e280 there's the possibility of it messing up the mp3 player itself.

    It could also be your computer's USB port. Try using a friend's computer or a different USB port perhaps and see if it works then.
