    the first thing did all the stuff you said it would, but didn't erase the files.

    the second one, it did all the stuff until the 4th step , i couldn't find a tools tab anywhere with anything saying "check now"

Try this...

1 put on hold and hold record button while u turn on (your sansa is now in recovery mode)
2 connect your sansa to your comp via usb cable a box should show up saying the firmware version
3 close the window and disconnect your sansa (it will restart)

if that doesnt fix your problem try this...

1 connect your sansa to comp via usb cable
2 right click start on windows desktop go to explore
3 scroll down to your sansa's drive rifght click it go to properties
4 go to tools tab and click "check now" under error checking will take awhile and will erase your memory on the sansa but it will probably work again

I hope my post was helpful let me know!!!!

Error opening



I have a kingston DT10 pendrive. When you plug in the pendrive to any computer, it say the pendrive needs to format. When you click format, then it say that windows cannot format the disk. I've try large number of software such as HD Guru Low level format but it's also useless. The problems start when a virus attacking my pendrive then suddenly hidding all my files. It's not a big deal to me to open it using up level button on the winrar system. But, the problem starts when im deleting a strange folder named 3hkgj..... something like that.

Hi, while starting my pc a message displayed that cannot find the script file c/windows/system 32/rahul's virus protection vbe


Let it be a lesson how not to run computer without protection, your computer is infected with rahul malware/virus...

Please follow this advice:

1. switch computer off
2. boot computer in safe mode (tapping f8 during boot up will get you there) as an administrator with network connection
3. go to this site and run they free online scanner:

http://www.eset.com/online-scanner

4. still in safe mode download and install ccleaner
5. run ccleaner, as last run registry ccleaner
6. reboot computer as "normal"
7. do yourself a favour and buy nod32 antivirus, install it and allow it to protect you...
8. download from Microsoft they free Malicious Software Removal Tool and run it as well

If above did not remove all traces of rahul, please follow that advice for manual removal:

1. click on any folder on the desktop
2. select any folder and click "tools" or "properties", you did not stated which windows you run, cannot provide exact instructions
3. select "folder options"
4 select "view"
5. select "hidden files and folders"
6. tick "show hidden files and folders"
7. remove tick from "hide extensions of known file types"
8. remove tick from "hide protected operating system files"
9. search for any file with "*rahul*.*" in title (that includes file mentioned by you in the problem question)
10. delete these files, if files "refuse" deletion, click on they properties, one by one, unselect tick from "read only", click "apply" and then delete
11. remove file "autorun.inf"
12. re-boot with full shut down in safe mode (step 1 and 2 of first part) and run ccleaner again including as last registry ccleaner

Hope this will solve your problem, and buy this antivirus... If problem still persist, do not hesitate to call me back on this thread, if succesfull please leave note.

I couldn't delete song files from T.sonic 850. I connect it to my computer thru USB & when i delete the song files, it get duplicated & appear as 0MB. when i play the player, those songs appeared...


I had this exact problem as well. The solution was to allow Windows to "Scan and Repair" the file system. The scan will likely detect all the duplicate 0-byte files created as you tried to delete files, and will remove these. In addition it should resolve the underlying problem such that you can now delete files normally without creating more of these 0-byte duplicates.

I can not download or remove or add any new programs or msn


There is another way of getting rid of programs in your computer other than going to your Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs menu. Try to locate the where the program is installed. If your computer has more than 1 partition (e.g. Local Drive C, Local Drive D, and so on), see which partition has that program. Use Search function from your Start menu (located on the lower left of your screen), click on All Files & Folders then 2 rectangular white boxes will appear. On the 1st box you type the name of the program you are looking for then click on Search button below. Once the results are displayed, right click on the listed program (it should exactly be the program you wish to remove, okay?) & choose Open containg folder. Once there, you can now manually delete each file & delete the folder itself. If there are files that Windows won't let you delete, try renaming them by changing their filename extension. This is especially true with files having a .dll at the end (those are driver files, they say). Change .dll into .txt then hit Enter key. If still you can't delete them after changing the filename extension, you may have to restart your computer & go back to those files to see if you can delete them already (they should NOW be deletable). Once all files & the folder containg it are gone, go to your Control Panel's Add/Remove menu. Click on the program you were trying to remove to highlight it then click Remove button. It should display a dialog box saying, "This program or the folder containing this program have been removed. Do you wish to remove it from this list?" Select YES.

I hope this will solve your problem. Let me know if it worked on your computer, okay?

****HELPFUL HINT**** Before you do anything with the Garmin unit, you might want to make a folder somewhere on your computer and name it something like NUVI CONTENTS. Then copy and paste or drag and drop, however you want to do it, all the contents of your NUVI. This way if you do something you didn't mean to, like delete a language, you can just put it back in.

Now what you need to look for are 3 folders, one is the HELP folder which is pretty useless once you get the hang of the Garmin unit. As a matter of fact I never even used the HELP button on the Garmin unit, because it's so easy to use.

The other folder is the VOICE folder, open it and start deleting the languages you are not likely to use or need. Make sure you DO NOT delete American English, unless you want to stick to British English. Of course I am assuming you need English, but regardless it goes for whichever language you want to keep. Assuming you are keeping American English these are the names of the files you need to keep in the VOICE folder english_american_.sum and English_American_.vpm.

The last folder is the TEXT folder, open it and delete all the files if you want. American English is the default so it won't go away, but regardless you'll have a back up anyways...RIGHT? LOL

I hope this helps you, and if you have any questions lay them on and I'll see what I can do for you. But I will say that I just bought my Nuvi back in April of this year so I am still learning a lot about it. I am working on tweaking the XML file so that it will ready more than 1 map on the SD, right now we are limited to 1 map per SD card.
