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 CAN I SYNC MUSIC TO MY SANSA E250..?


To sync music you have to first open the Rhapsody music player (If you don't have Rhapsody you have to download it fom the Sansa disk or you cannot add music). From there you can drag the songs you want from your library onto the icon in the list on the left that says "Sansa e250". On that screen there is a bar at the bottom that tells you how much space is left on your Sansa.

Hope this helps!

Hi,

From initial appearances, it would seem that you are running out of disk space with your Sansa e250. Should this have happened, there is a strong possibility that the filing system would also have been corrupted. The best would be to reformat and/or perhaps even to re-install the firmware. This is so as to start fresh/anew.

Incidentally, computerrep, anoother resident expert is with Sansa/Sandisk, you may have better luck with his able assistance. In a similar concern, he has posted this solution.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Missing music


Try formating the player. I know mine did the same thing and it had corrupted files on it. So, I formatted it and seemed to work fine. Be sure to back up your music files.

Unreadable files for Sansa e250


Don't worry, there's a solution.

You have to run what's called "Check Disk."
  1. Switch the sansa player into MSC usb mode in the settings under "USB Settings".
  2. Then plug it into your PC and goto my computer.
  3. Then Right click the player's icon and goto properties
  4. Then there should be tabs on the top of the box that pops up. Click "tools"
  5. Then there is an area that says area-checking with a button that says "Check Now..."
  6. A box pops up; Click both option boxes and press start.
  7. Then exit out of all the boxes and safely remove the player.
  8. Unplug player and let it restart.
WARNING: Sometimes it will make files "disappear", but still use space. In that case you will have to format it and put the music back on. It all depends on how "corrupted" the files were. If your files disappear, reply stating so and I will help you out with that if you don't know how to format.

Thank you and please respond with any comments or more questions.

you must use windows media player 10 or 11 to sync songs into the sansa. Make sure you sync it this way or else your songs will not go in properly.

Can not view my music files on my laptop (but can on my desktop)


Get the latest firmware upgrade - this player wasn't originally designed with WMP 11 in mind. Also, make sure the laptop has the folders "My Documents" and "My Music" on it - this is primarily where WMP reads from.
