Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, 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.

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/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

I have a vgn-b3vp (pcg-5b1m) sony laptop, can i upgrade the memory if it has 512 of none-removable memory and only 1 bank.


Yes, you can use the 1 bank and get higher graded memory, another 512 in the 1 bank would make 1gig, you can probable get as much as 2 gig in the bank to make a total of 2.5 gigs by buying a 2 gig memory stick.

PSP can't read my memory stick and LAN light is flashing.


hi
is it just the one movie that wont play or have you tried music and game saves?
a few things to check
1 is the memory card showing magic gate supported
2 check if the card shows 15.?gb with nothing on it
3 try loading the card with 15gb of music and pictures

i bought a 16gb pro duo memory card from ebay that was a 4gb card showing in the psp as 15.4gb but corrupted every thing after 4gb.
if you also find that the card is only taking between 4-8gb of data contact ebay as this is likely a fake card.

Want to increase memory above 1 gig. compaq nx9010


You may have incompatible memory module. Just put in one memory module in at a time to see if it boots up, this will determine which module was not compatible.

Switch sticks around in various combinations (2 gig in slot one, 1 gig in slot two, switch, try other stick, etc) and see if it is the memory or the motherboard.

Ipods


A Nano is a smaller model player. Usually they range in memroy size of 2 gig up to 8 gig. The units are smaller because they use flash memory rather than a hard drive. They were desinged to be a more cost effective unit than the standard size Ipod and there easier to carry around if you are using them for working out. The current nano model can play video which is a new feature to that line.

A Standard IPod contains a small hard drive and varries in size from 35 gig up to 160 gig. Most people can put their whole music library onto one. Thousands of songs and videos can be put onto one. If you have a Tivo and your PC is connected to it, you can put tv shows on it.

The shuffle is a smaller player. It contains 1 gig of flash memory. It has no display but the size of unit is nice to have for audio books, podcasts, or music.

The nice thing about Ipods over MP3 players is that most musicians in the world use ITunes to sell their music. You can buy one song at a time or whole CD worth of songs. You can take CDs, load them up in your computer and put them on your hard drive and transfer them to your Ipod. You can purchase music tunes for 99 cents a piece. Videos can be purchase for 1.99 a piece. Most Tv programs that are out there available for purchase on ITunes. You can use them on audible books as well.

You can download and subscribe to podcasts. Most are free but there are a few out there that are not. They cover a vast variety of subjects that interest people. I do a weekly podcast covering local news in the Seattle are for out of towners.

A standard MP3 play can read your CDs once there installed in the computer and converted to an MP3 format. Apple files are done in a different format called aac which is only compatible with there players. Some MP3 players can show video if they can accept MP4 files. You can download them to the player if you have a program that can convert them to MP4 format. If you need to purchase songs, you can go through Rapsody. They handle most of the MP3 material for players that are not Apple and have a large selection as well. Audible books uses just about every MP3 player out there.

Getting "Not enough memory available to complete this operation" error message using Sound Recorder


This problem occurs because of a design limitation in Sound Recorder and not because of any problem with the underlying multimedia. That means that the program is unable to access more than 2 gigs of memory by design.

It's generally not a good idea to mix sizes as your more likely to get problems, but that said it probably should still work it's most likely your configuration consult your motherboard book as to what order you should install the memory you have.
