When I turn on my SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player all it has on it is record and ready, I used to have a bunch of music on it and I don't know what I did , I did try to download a book once,I think I did...


Hello,
  • First you could try to RESET the Sansa Clip as next:
>>>
1. Turn the player on (shortly switch the power switch up)
2. Slide and hold the power switch up for 15-20 seconds
3. Release the power switch
The reset is completed
<<<
4. Shortly slide the power switch up
Check if the player functions normally again.

  • When the reset does NOT help next steps will be required:
>>>
1. Put the player in MSC mode: this way a computer recognizes the player as a removable disk.
How to put the Sansa Clip in MSC mode:
1.1 Turn device OFF.
1.2 Slide the Hold switch down to Lock (orange color showing).
1.3 Press and hold the center button while connecting the device to the PC.

2. Backup the media content on the player to the computer.
Connect the player to the computer and backup the files to the PC,
exploring "My Computer" in the removable disk.

3. Perform a firmware reinstallation / firmware update.
Use next link for updating the Clip's firmware:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/300/related/1
The Sansa Firmware Updater execute file is mentioned as installer
for getting the matching updates for the Sansa Clip.
Direct to the Sansa Firmware Updater execute file with next link:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Application/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe
Right click the link above and select "Save Target As..." for saving the
installer to a location on the computer.
Double click the execute file after the download has completed to run it.

It wont turn on!


If you were charging it with your USB cord, you have to keep the computer turned on the whole time it's charging, otherwise, it will be losing it's charge.

Sansa 1g clip wont turn on.


did you try holding the power button on for ten seconds (the reset) after trying to charge it again? does it even power up when you plug it into the usb. if it powers on when connected to the usb and then shuts off immediately when you take it off the usb (rather than "refreshing database") then your battery is either 1)disconnected inside 2)dead or there may be issues with power management. Same thing happened to me (disconnected) but I soldered the loose connection and it only worked for two days, even checking the connections again. Now I don't know what's going on. It's more likely the battery has reached the end of its life.

It froze


Sansa Clip Player has some problem. I tried 4 sansa clip players (I purchased at Best Buy for Thanksgiving), and none of them work. Dont even try to exchange them, just return them back.
