Ok, for everyone with e130 "keeps getting an I/O device error, only language screen, than something about 4MB memory..." problem, I just spend six hours of my life trying to solve it and fix my dad's e130 and I succeeded ;)

so, step by step, how EXACTLY I did it:

0) my system was windowsXP SP2

1) remove the battery
2) keep holding the menu button and plug in the usb, keep it for a few seconds more, untill the system will tell you it found a stmp3500 and want to install the hardware
3) allow it to reach windows update for that matter and install the drivers
4) now you have new device that is called "Player Recovery Device Class" you can check it in device manager (Right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager)
5) and now is time for flushing new firmware...I managed to find two versions of firmware for e130:

1.0.101e - http://www.sandisk-karty.cz/sandisk-katalog/sansa-e100-series-mp3-players/dokumenty/
2.0.0.01e - http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1295

6) I tried both of them in many different combinations and finally one and one only miraculously worked for me and that was the one when

I HAD THE SD CARD IN THE MP3PLAYER, THE PLAYER WAS RECOGNIZED AS "Player Recovery Device Class" BY THE WINXP AND I STARTED EUROPIAN sansa-2.0.0.01e.exe !


PS: i don't think that there's a big difference between europian and american version of firmware I mention it just to be accurate about the situation. and big thanks to anonymous guy who turned me to right direction with stmp3500. hope that help to others ;]

Hey folks! Yes there is a way to fix this, after you run format, it runs into the firmware a little bit, so when you reload it, there is a possiblilty that you cross over into that part of the internal memory space that is reserved for firmware operation. The solution if this message appears is simply plug the e130 back up to your computer, and delete a few songs from the Sansa. When you do this and power up the unit should then run normally. This ALWAYS works for me. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the solution.

In Step 2 try holding the power button and plugging the USP if the menu button does not work.

The Music DB refers to the Music Database, or the Artist, Album, and Song info.

The error means your device is too full. It needs some free space on the device to create this information.

Connect your device to the PC and manually delete some files from it in My Computer>Device Name (m240)>MUSIC Folder.

It needs 6MB of free space, so you may need to delete several songs.

Disconnect the device from the PC, it should restart and you should be ok. If the message continues, keep deleting files until its gone,



Best of Luck.

Memory issue


There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Sansa e130 cant open


On not being able to detect any files when viewing Sansa in windows: try changing the format mode on the Sansa device - on mine I go to Settings and then USB and then changed it to MSC. I was then able to see the files in Windows and delete a bunch of them and then resynch in Windows Media Player.

No enough memory


It simply is saying you put to many songs on the mp3 player and you need to delete some by connecting it to the computer and delete them, one way to stop this it to upgrade and get a bigger memory stick.
