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

How do I convert and transfer music from my computer to my dmg ds140 mp3


Did you transfer MP3 files, i.e files with a .mp3 extension after the name, e.g. StarSpangledBanner.mp3 ? From the error messages you are getting, it looks to me that the files you transferred are not MP3 files. For example, when you press Play, one or more files are highlighted and the player tries to play the first (or the only one) highlighted, but it can't because it is in a format that is not supported, i.e. not MP3. When you click Music, the player starts looking for all the MP3 files that you have on the player or on an external memory card. It cannot find any, hence the 'empty disv/card' error message.

After uploading music the message disk error keeps showing and no music is avaliable to listen to


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

Uploading music


Well first of all, all music purchased from iTunes is in mp4 format, not mp3. You will have to convert you music to mp3 format for it to work. The retail version of nero, works well for that. Another option is to burn your music to cd, then reimport it into your music library, from the cd, as mp3. You'll have to change some setting though if you go that route.

Music from Itunes (from cd's uploaded to computer) to Sansa


The Sansa Clip cannot read AAC file format (which is the format used by iTunes) - convert all your AAC files to Mp3's or WMA's

Error Message


This just sounds to me like you have a slight error. You may need to update your firmware/drivers or formatting.

One of those solutions should fix your problem.

To update your firmware you will need to visit your mp3 players manufacture, I have found your firmware all you will need to do is visit this link and download the firmware/drivers -

http://www.sandisk.com/driverdownload/index.asp

Once your on the website choose your mp3 player ect.. then click download.

If that doesn't do the trick my final solution is to format your mp3 player then update the firmware/drivers.

To format a basic way follow these steps. First click on "Start" - then go to "My Computer" - then look for your mp3 player if the name hasn't been customized it will come under the name of "Removable Disk" - once you've found it right-click on it then click on "Format".

Once you've formatted then do the first solution surgested. which was install the firmware/drivers. Once you've done that upload music back on to your mp3 player then see if the problems be fixed.

Good luck. Hope my solutions were helpful.
