Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted. http://www.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. Select format when prompted. Best of Luck.

Apparently there is a known problem with older firmware with some MP3 files having info in the ID part of the file that makes the player go crazy. So update your firmware or listen to different music :-)

"Bugs Fixed: Stability· Hanging at Refresh Database with certain ID3 tag genres."

This info from page below. Also shows you how to update to latest firmware which may fix your problem

I cant find the songs to delete and it the refresh database fails everytime


If you cant see it in MTP mode, the MTP drivers may not be installed on your computer.

Its easier to do this than explain the other solution.

Follow these instructions and you will be back in business.

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://www.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. Select format when prompted.




Best of Luck.

Screen remains on Refresh Database everytime I turn it on.


I've run into this also. a few options.. 1) Use the Sansa Updater software to upgrade firmware. (available on Sandisk website) 2) Sometimes adding a couple new songs back wakes it up.

Continous refresh database


I've got the same problem too. I read this on another website: 'well firstly drain the battery and then connect it to charge it up a bit. once it has been there for 5min or so take it off and then turn it on>settings>USB Mode>MSC once you have done that connect it up and it should work/recognise the player. i don''t know how this thingy happens but this is just how i fixed mine!' I'm gonna try it now on mine, and see if it works. I've just got to wait now... Good luck with yours.

How do you refresh database?


This just means that the player is refreshing the songs on the list, it does not mean that you have to do anything.
