2 possibilities. Most likey you need to upgrade the firmware for your device so that it is compatible with WMP. Go to the sandisk website. find product support and download the latest fimware. install it on your player. then try using wmp again. if that doesn't work you may need to reformat the device. open your 'my computer folder' with the device connected. right click on the device icon. click format. set to FAT format if allowed. click quick format. unplug device and then power it back on. it should reboot itself.

After i plugged it into the computer the only options i get are transfer files from windows media player and no action, what can i do to transfer the songs to the mp3


Select "No Action," to avoid accidentally setting up Auto-Sync (undesirable). Then open up Windows Media Player, and use the Sync tab to transfer the songs to your Sansa. It may sound crazy, but doing it in the way I suggest will allow you to sync songs manually instead of automatically. Auto-sync will add files that you do not want into your mp3 player. Manual sync allows you to choose which songs you add to the mp3 player.

Error message comes up when media player loads saying it can not Sync files, this is when the MP3 RCA H100A is plugged in and says connected. it will not sync my music to transfer it to my MP3 Player.


Reformat your RCA inside Windows Media Player (warning: this will erase all osngs of your player - they will have to be re-added):

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Stuck on the main screen!!! HELP!!


Unfortunately, in the state that it is in, the songs will be deleted, b/c all of the recovery methods result in all osngs being deleted. Sorry.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, 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.
-----
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/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Cant get songs onto my Sansa e280 player =[


"Refresh database" is a normal message that you will get everytime you unplug the Sansa from the computer - don't worry about that aspect.

If the songs that you have transferred have DRM encryption on them, they may not play right (or at all) on the Sansa.

If you have Windows Media Player 11, I would get the firmware update from the Sansa website AND format the Sansa inside Windows Media Player:
for the firmware,
for the format, http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
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 and get your player functioning normally.

Somehow i deleted everything!


There are a few different ways to delete songs off your player - see especially the method involving the firmware update.
Preventive Medicine: To prevent Windows Media Player from adding all of your My Documents files to the Sansa player every time you connect the Sansa to the computer - 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 "Set up Sync". When a window pops up, uncheck the box that says "Sync device automatically".
Quick Method 1 - 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.
Quick Method 2 - 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/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
Slow Method, allows more control over what gets deleted: In Windows Media Player 11, the files are organized by Music, Pictures, Videos, Etc. First, you will want to plug the Sansa player into the computer. Then click the Library tab in Windows Media Player. You will most likely be in Music view. You will see two sets of folders in the left-hand side of Windows Media Player. The first set are all the files stored in your computer. The second set of folders underneath the line that says Sansa 1GB Mp3 player (I forget the exact wording) has all the files that are stored in your Sansa player. Click on the "All Songs" folder. You can individually delete all the songs that you want by left-clicking once on the song name in the middle of the Windows Media Player window, and then pressing "Delete" on your computer's keyboard. You will have to repeat this process again for images, videos, etc by clicking the little arrow next to the picture of the musical note on the upper left hand corner of Windows Media Player, and expanding the dropdown menu, and selecting "images"...then "Videos" etc.
NOTE: After plugging in your Sansa player, if you see a message that says "Connect a Device" in the Sync tab on Windows Media Player, then the cmputer is not properly recognizing your Sansa player, and you may need additional instructions from me.
