    Tried to delete a song and it change to a white screen completely inoperable. Held the power button for 13 seconds until it turned off. Turned it back on all of the song ratings I added in the prior session did not save. Tried delete again same thing happened, except upon powering up it went directly to the white screen. This continued until I gave up. The next moring it was working for half the day and it happened again so I took it back and got another one. I suggest making a back up file for you sansa on your computer and updated it as often as you make changes.

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.

Sansa fuze just froze when i hit skip to listen to another song. please help!


Not to worry, your sansa just hung up , Please look out for the small hole on the sansa for resetting the device, use a small office pin to depress and hold on. The ipod will be reset now and you must be able to continue playing. Connect you sansa to a PC and check out the loaded files. scan them with an antivirus, delete if any corrupt ones. I hope this clear up the issue. Good day

Slide the power switch up for at least 10 seconds, this will reset the Fuze. After which you should be able to power on your Fuze normally.

Reset your Fuze by holding the power slider switch in the "On" position for 15-30 seconds. Release the button once the unit begins to power down.
