You may have to substitute the REC button for the volume + button if the earlier solutions do not resolve your issue. As always, make sure the hold/lock switch is not accidentally engaged:
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.

I have a sansa fuze 8 gb. I would like to get a manual or some instructions on how to use it. It only list a 2 GB to pick from but mine has 8 GB


The Sanza fuse uses a general manual so size will not matter when looking at the guide.

I found you this one on Sandisk's website, this is more of a quick start guide:

http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/30/kw/fuze*/r_id/101834

And the full PDF guide can be found:

http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/UserManual/FUZE/Fuze_userguide_en.pdf


If you cannot view the PDF file, google FOXIT Reader and install it. This will be able to show you the file. Also Adobe Acrobat works too.

Adding a 8GB MICRO SD card to the Sansa e260


I read somewhere that a 4 GB Micro SD card is the largest you can put in the SanDisk Sansa E260 expansion slot. It's maximum capacity is 8 GB, with internal + external memory put together. This is from what I've read. Hope this helps.

I took my Sansa back to the store under warrenty, They exchanged it straight across. Really the only advise your team gave me was to take the battery out and turn the unit back on- I had already done this several times before I contacted your site. I wasn't thrilled with the advise given to me
