Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted. http://sandisk.com/assets/file/downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool. - Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds) - slide the hold switch into "hold" position. - Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer. Then run the recovery tool. Again, select format when prompted. Best of Luck.

    Then your device is the Rhapsody version, unfortunately the software is different.

    You need to manually create a format text document.

    Its a rather long process and easy to do incorrectly.

    You can call SanDisk and they will send it to you.

I have a Sansa Miniclip that is about two and a half years old. When I try switching it on, the Sandisk logo appears and flashes for 1 or 2 minutes before the screen shuts down and the wheel flashes a few...


Sounds like it's time for a new mp3 player, fortunately you can get Sansas like this one fairly cheap if you buy them used online.

What operating system are you using?

  4. Release RECORD when you see "welcome to recovery mode" on the player's LCD.
  5. Open My Computer/Windows Explorer and see if you can find a new removable flash drive labeled "16MB-FORMAT".
  6. Right click on 16MB-FORMAT and select New Folder.
  7. Name the new folder "sansa.fmt" (without the quotes).
  8. Wait one minute.
  9. Reset HOLD back to unlocked position.

Sandisk sansa e250 still sandisk


If the Sandisk sansa e250 appears under your computer you can format it by simply right clicking it and selecting format.

Quick format usually works best but make sure no applications are using the device when you format. If applications are using the device when you attempt to format you will get an error message that will prevent you from continuing.

You can disable any applications using the player by going to the task manager.
