Try this;

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.




Best of Luck.

(e260R) Refresh Database eternal loop


Turn it on into recovery mode (Hold + Record Button + Power)
Connect to computer (You should detect a 16MB drive)
Make an empty text file inside the 16MB Drive and rename it to "sansa.fmt"
Unplug the Sansa. You should see now a "Formatting..." on the Sansa's screen.
Sansa fixed!

Screen remains on Refresh Database everytime I turn it on.


I've run into this also. a few options.. 1) Use the Sansa Updater software to upgrade firmware. (available on Sandisk website) 2) Sometimes adding a couple new songs back wakes it up.

"refresh database failed"


You have an error in the firmware. This is damage than is irreparable by any user of a mp3 player. Call the company, tell then that your firmware was corrupted and ask how you can "hard boot" back into a "Fresh copy" of your firmware. Problem solved! hope this helps!

How do you refresh database?


This just means that the player is refreshing the songs on the list, it does not mean that you have to do anything.

Refresh database looping


This may not work for everyone - but try inserting a TransFlash (also called Micro SD)card in the microSD slot, and power on. It may then correctly refresh its database. It worked in my case, with firmware ver11.
