You can Format your device by using the Sansa Media Converter, Windows Media Player, or manually through "My Computer". Best and easiest way is through "My Computer".
Connect your player. Go to "My Computer" > right click "Sansa e200" > drop down to "Format".
Or do it on Windows Media Player. Connect the player and open up Windows Media Player. Go to the "Sync" tab. Click on the arrow underneath it. Drop down to "Sansa e280" and then to "Format". This can only been done in Windows Media Player 11.
Or go to format under one of the options of the Menu Bar on the Sansa Media Converter.

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.

Okay, my IRiver broke with the same kind of problems but I've managed to fix it!
First off i connected the IRiver to the pc, and whilst it was connecting, pressed the 'select' button (the one on the front with the circle on it) to force it to connect.
Next i right clicked on it and selected format to wipe everything off it (just to make sure it was blank).
Next, go to www.iriver.com and on the left hand side click Support->Download and click on H10 in the product box. On that page should be a file to download called "[MTP]H10 5G/5G Pure/6G Firmware Upgrader/Recovery Tool(US & EU only)". The download icon is just underneath the title of it, so download, unpack using winrar ot winzip etc, then double click and follow the instructions.
It wiped the songs off, but i have an IRiver that works! Its an awful product in my opinion, but better to have it working than not. Can't guarentee that it'll work for everyone but it fixed mine first time.
Hope it helps!

I had same problem, after not using it for years and losing the instructions which I had downloaded in 2005.
Then I recalled that plugging my earphones in might unlock it, and it did. I also plugged it into my PC to add and remove some files (but I don't think that had anything to do with it,
Try it. I have to say this site hasn't helped me as no-one seems to know the answers and google didn't help either!
I'd still like to get the instructions again. In the mean time I will press the buttons and cross my fingers!
