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.

How to put msic on it


Hi,
Install the Windows driver included in the product package before connecting your Sylvania MP3 player. Insert the included driver CD into your CD-ROM drive and run the setup file if it does not load automatically. This driver makes sure your computer can recognize and operate the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 2 Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 3 Insert the other end of the same USB cable into the USB port on the computer.
  • 4 Wait for the computer to recognize the Sylvania MP3 player as a connected device. Open your file manager or browser to locate the Sylvania MP3 player as a drive or connected device if your computer does not prompt you automatically.
  • 5 Open the file folder containing the MP3 or WMA digital music files you wish to download to your Sylvania MP3 player.
  • 6 Drag and drop the file or folder icons of your desired digital music onto the Sylvania MP3 player device icon. Drag and drop the digital music into open folders within the Sylvania MP3 player device icon as well.

    My computer has not a cd rom. How can I put the driver of mp3 player element gc 822 on my computer.


    Hello,

    its simple, look around for one of your friends that has a computer with CD Rom drive.

    Copy the driver into the Computer (your friends own) and use a flash drive to copy the drivers from the computer to the flash drive.

    After you copy it into a flash drive, insert the flash into your computer and use it to install your mp3 player.

    I hope you are able to understand my message, if you don't, please let me know.

    I wish you all the best.

    I have an e-machines with a dvd/cd-rom in one that will not work.


    i understand that your pc has a single dvd-drive that has the problem that it dos read dvds but not cds...
    please give model because this is a rare error.
    to check it, get the following disks and the freeware program 'burnatonce' (it is a burning software that accesses the drives on a lower than windows basis )
    to check from the hardware side what the problem is:

    install burnatonce
    run it
    open tools/device info
    and check if the following disc are really recognized or not

    a standard music cd(audio cd)
    a computer cd(original ! windows install cd or other install cd)
    a self burnt cd containing mp3's (CD-R type, 700MB or800MB)
    any other computer cd for pc

    an original film dvd
    a selfburnt film dvd (DVD-R)
    an original computer-data dvd (any PC-Game will do)

    if only dvd's work, strange!

    get a new drive then.

    i dont know the exact model. but there should be a usb cable that came with it. you should then plug the usb cable into the mp3 player and then plug it into the usb port on your computer. at which point on your computer it should have a popup notification recognizing a expansion drive. such as C: would be your hard drive and D: your cd/dvd rom. open the newly formed expansion drive and you can just copy the mp3's to the mp3 player.
