Here is what I found in the Sandisk forums - make sure you download the firmware for your exact player only, or else it won't work right:

Assuming it's a v1 model, you can try updating the firmware through recovery mode. Here's how:

1) Download the firmware file for your region from Sandisk's website - go to Support, Sansa Players, software & drivers, e200 series

2) Extract the files you downloaded in step 1 to a folder on your computer where you'll be able to find them. There will be 2 files in the archive, one is a .ROM file and one is a .MI4 file.

3) Create a new blank empty text file and name it sansa.fmt. Do not name it sansa.fmt.txt. Put that file in the same folder where you put the extracted files from step 2. You now have 3 files in that folder: the .ROM, the .MI4, and the .FMT files.

4) Turn off the player if it's on by holding down the menu/power button. You might need to hold it down for 15 to 20 seconds.

5) Put the HOLD button on the top of the player to the ON position. The ORANGE tag will be showing.

6) Hold down the RECORD button on the left side of the player while connecting it to the computer.

7) You should see a message on the player to the effect MSD MODE 2.0 USB CONNECTED or something similar. If you don't see it, go back to step 4 and try again.

8) Look in My Computer. You should see a new removable drive labeled 16MBFORMAT if all has gone according to plan. DO NOT TRY TO FORMAT THIS VOLUME!

9) Drag and drop the 3 files from step 3 into the root directory of the 16MBFORMAT drive. Right-click on the 16MBFORMAT volume and select Eject or, alternatively, use the safely remove hardware icon in the system tray.

10) Unplug the player from the computer. It should update the firmware, format itself, and then reboot.

The above instructions only work with the v1 model.

Hello support team! i got myself a verbatim store n go 500gb usb 2.0 model nr: 53002. my problem is that as soon as i plug it into my laptop and start copying files on it it takes ages and the system...


Have you tried reformatting the usb drive? If you have any files on it go ahead and transfer them to your desktop. Just create a new folder on your desktop by right clicking on the desktop screen(not a shortcut) go to new, then click on folder(you can name it if you want). now install your usb drive and the auto play screen should come up. Select the "open folder to view files" and your folder will open with your files, now just drag and drop them into the new folder you just created on your desktop. After you have saved all your files to the new folder go ahead and open the new folder on your desktop, just to make sure everything's there, if so time for the next step. Close your usb drive folder by clicking on the "x". Now click on Start(windows logo on bottom left hand), then "computer", then find your usb device name and right click on it. Go down and click on format, then when window appears select quick format, then on the "file system" select FAT32, then click start. Everything will be erased(but that's why we copied and pasted everything to your new folder on the desktop). Once completed open up the device and transfer all your files to it. Hope this helps.

I am using a 848P-A motherboard. I have just installed a SATA hard disk and changed OnChip IDE Device>Onchip Serial ATA to "Enhanced"(intend to use the new SATA drive as a secondary drive) but...


1. Does your new SATA hard drive can be seen in BIOS or POST. if yes 2. Does this new drive shown in "my computer" it should be no or under device manager is should be yes. 3. Use disk management.
To start Disk Management:
  1. Log on as administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
  2. Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
  3. In the console tree, click Disk Management. The Disk Management window appears. Your disks and volumes appear in a graphical view and list view. To customize how you view your disks and volumes in the upper and lower panes of the window, point to Top or Bottom on the View menu, and then click the view that you want to use.


To create a new partition or logical drive on a basic disk:
  1. In the Disk Management window, complete one of the following procedures, and then continue to step 2:
    • To create a new partition, right-click unallocated space on the basic disk where you want to create the partition, and then click New Partition.
    • To create a new logical drive in an extended partition, right-click free space on an extended partition where you want to create the logical drive, and then click New Logical Drive.
  2. In the New Partition Wizard, click Next.
  3. Click the type of partition that you want to create (either Primary partition, Extended partition, or Logical drive), and then click Next.
  4. Specify the size of the partition in the Partition size in MB box, and then click Next.
  5. Decide whether to manually assign a drive letter, let the system automatically enumerate the drive, or do not assign a drive letter to the new partition or logical drive, and then click Next.
  6. Specify the formatting options you want to use by using one of the following procedures:
    • If you do not want to format the partition, click Do not format this partition, and then click Next.
    • If you want to format the partition, click Format this partition with the following settings, and then complete the following procedure in the Format dialog box:
      1. Type a name for the volume in the Volume label box. This is an optional step.
      2. Click the file system that you want to use in the File system box.

        You can change the disk allocation unit size, and then specify whether to perform a quick format, or enable file and folder compression on NTFS volumes.
      Click Next.

  7. Confirm that the options that selected are correct, and then click Finish.
The new partition or logical drive is created and appears in the appropriate basic disk in the Disk Management window. If you chose to format the volume in step 6, the format process now starts.

To format a partition, logical drive or basic volume:
  1. In the Disk Management window, right-click the partition or logical drive that you want to format (or reformat), and then click Format.
  2. In the Format dialog box, type a name for the volume in the Volume label box. This is an optional step.
  3. Click the file system that you want to use in the File system box. If you want, you can also change the disk allocation unit size, specify whether you want to perform a quick format, or enable file and folder compression on NTFS volumes.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Click OK when you are prompted to format the volume. The format process starts.
For further Instructions click the link DISK.
Thanks, looking forward to fix your problem, just give a feedback if this helps.

Outlook express


hi,

Error 0x800c0133 when you are retrieving email with your Outlook Express (OE) is because of currupted Inbox file.
To remedy please follow these steps:
  1. Open OE, on the left pane, right click "Local Folders", select "New Folder...", specify a name for your new folder as "Temp".
  2. If you are still able to access "Inbox", move all mails in "Inbox" to the new "Temp" folder.
  3. Go to menu "Tools" -> "Options" -> "Maintenance" tab -> "Store Folder" button. It will show the location of your Inbox file, please remember this location.
  4. Close OE, go to the location mentioned above, delete the file "inbox.dbx".
  5. Restart OE, the "Inbox" folder should be auto recreated. Move back your mails to the new "Inbox", remove the "Temp" folder.
or

Another solution
Error Number:0x800c0133


Error Number: 0x800C0133 = a corrupt Inbox.

Move any mail you wish to save to a local folder you create. Then:

Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store Folder will reveal the location of
your Outlook Express files. Press the Tab key to highlight the folder
location, then Ctrl+C. Close OE, then Start | Run | Ctrl+V will put the
location in the box - Click OK and you'll see the OE files. Otherwise, write
the location down and navigate to it in Windows Explorer.

In WinXP, Win2K & Win2K3 the OE user files (DBX and WAB) are by default
marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable
Show Hidden Files and Folders under Start | Control Panel | Folder Options |
View.

With OE closed, find the DBX file for the folder in question {Inbox.dbx} and
delete it. A new one will be created automatically when you open OE.

General precautions for Outlook Express:

Do not archive mail in default OE folders. They will eventually become
corrupt. Create your own user defined folders for storing mail and move your
mail to them. Empty Deleted Items folder regularly. Keep user created
folders under 100MB, and Default folders as empty as is feasible.

After you are done, follow up by compacting your folders manually while
working *offline* and do it often.

Click on Outlook Express at the top of the folder tree so no folders are
open. Then: File | Work Offline (or double click Working Online in the
Status Bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until
the compacting is completed.

Turn off e-mail scanning in your anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer
of protection that eats up CPUs and causes a multitude of problems such as
time-outs and account setting changes. Your up-to-date A/V program will
continue to protect you sufficiently. For more, see:
http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3

In Tools | Options | Maintenance: Uncheck Compact messages in background and
leave it unchecked.

Error message


I had the same problem with a USB drive and a SD card. Both were only recieving 170 files to the root folder before I got this error. The solution was to reformat each using using 'FAT32' as the file system. This basically is a more modern file system that allows more files and cam about after win95. It looks like some USB drives and SD card are origninally formted with basic 'FAT'.

To reformat right click on the drive in windows explorer and select 'Format...'.

Another option if you dont need all the files in the root flder is to create a subfolder however this was not an option for me as my digital photo frame would not handle this.
