7 Answers

C150 frozen! I turned it off, the next day, i tried to turn it on, but the screen is frozen! the SanDisk appears,after that the song screen appears as usual, but i can't do anything, it's frozen. I removed the battery to put a new one into it, still nothing, not even the battery energy level changed. None of the buttons works and my computer doesn't detect it. I tried to remove the battery and directly plug it in my computer, it turns on, my computer still doesn't detect it and the screen is still frozen! Any solution?

You can try get into "Production Test". Just power on your salsa and then press vol- and down button. Maybe you will be able to do something.

I know its a silly question but can anyone please tell me the step-by-step process to transfer songs to my sansa c150 MP3 player......... Thanks

  • Step 1:Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer.

  • Step 3:Open the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player on your computer. The music files that you currently have saved to the player’s memory are displayed.
  • Step 4:Open a folder containing music files that is stored in your desktop computer’s memory. Scan the files for songs that you want to transfer to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player.
  • Step 5:Left-click on a song file and drag to the SanDisk Sansa window. Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list.
  • Step 6:Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.

My Sandisk c150 is frozen and I've tried to turn it off and push the Hold button then turn it on again, but all that comes up is a symbol of a lock. Please HELP!

In this case on the Mp3 player itself u will see a Hold/Unphold slide switch just slide that switch to the opposite direction and that will fix the problem

Frozen at start update

The secret to treating brain damage on the c150 is to definitely use the <> download. This is a *.rar file and you need to also download the 7zip freeware program to extract the contents of the file to a folder. Read the *.txt message in the folder and follow the directions and you will be back in business. Your c150 will probably occasionally have a relapse so keep the folder on your computer. This works!

Delete demo files on Sandisk c150?

The demo songs still don't show up when I select "Show hidden files/folders". I had go to Menu->Settings->Format, and proceed with formatting it to get the demo songs off my Sansa c240 (This will delete all songs/files).
