You keep on pressing the center button and menu button randomly it will shutdown properly . After it has shut down properly connect to pc and have a virus check over the player . And remove any virus present in it .

The refresh database froze.


This has happened to me a dozen times since I've owned mine. It's a piece of junk. But to fix it, you'll have to reformat it from 'recovery mode'. Here's a repost of a solution that worked for me:
  1. Open My Computer.
  2. Switch Sansa to Hold (top switch toward headphone jack).
  3. Hold record button and connect to computer thru USB cable.
  4. The player should say Recovery Mode and USB connected.
  5. In My Computer you should see 16MB FORMAT J: (or another drive letter)
  6. Double click the drive
  7. Drop down the file menu and create a new folder
  8. Name that folder: sansa.fmt
  9. Disconnect the USB (either end) and Sansa will format and reset system.

From the Sansa FAQ page at http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_e200/faqs
09. When I turn on my e200, nothing shows but the blue ring is on, what do I need to do?
Applies to the following Operating Systems:

The player might have a power glitch. As a result, it does not turn on and is not being detected by the computer.
STEP1 - Reset the player

  2. Run the hotfix.
STEP2 - Connect the player to the computer
  1. Connect the device to the computer

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.
