What does it mean when the player says bad track for your songs?

this means that the player cannot play the selected file or song. it might be due to a bad conversion or the player not being able to recognize your song's format.
also, it could be that you disconnected it from your pc before the file was completely copied and as a result the file was not properly copied and that makes it more of an invalid file.
you could try re-converting the file or downloading a fresh copy and see if it does the same thing for the song
hope this helped you? please rate

Hello! I have a chance e200 which is blocked,


Recovery Mode

I was having a problem with my player and after a little back and forth they showed me a back door to recover the system:

If your Player wants you to start in recovery mode

1. Activate the "HOLD" function 2. Press "Rec" and hold, while ath the same time pressing "ON/OFF" button and hold.

After some seconds of pressing there appears a screen reading: Recovery mode: Connect cable Now connect to your PC. A folder 16mbFORMAT will appear under 'My Computer'. Call SanDisk technical support for the most up to date firmware files. 1-866-SanDisk

Note: The firmware is available online via links in their forum at

There are currently 2 version of the e200s, make sure you get the proper firmware for your version.

Copy the .MI4 file from the zip to the 16mbFORMAT folder.

The one thing I don't see mentioned in thread is to format the device completely, create a new directory called "sansa.fmt" in the 16mbFORMAT folder. Then, unplug the usb cable from your computer. Powering down will not reformat.

I can not get cd that I have in my computer to

You cannot copy a CD song to a MP3 player, it does not recognize the CD file format only MP3 file format.
You can convert your CDs into MP3 files can copy them to your MP3 player. There are freeware programs on the Internet that convert CD songs to MP3 format, the CD song is rip/converted to MP3 file.
Microsoft Media Player can also rip CD songs into MP3 files as well as playing MP3 files/songs.

Sansa e200 music

Well formatting IS deleting all the files on your sandisk. I figured that out the first day i had it. So if you're formatting when all your songs are on there, then that's your problem. If not, then i dont know what to tell you.

Mp4 player nano has stopped working

You are copying an unknown format to your mp4. Some mp3/mp4 handles a different type of audio and video files. Read your manual and check what particular audio and video files it can read. Look for an audio and video converter on the net. install it on your pc, convert your audio/video files to a format your mp4 can read and copy it to your mp4. I hope this helps you.

A Simple Thank you is Good Enough

Sansa e200 No USB Menu Option?

e200 or c200? I know that problem was fixed on the e200 with the latest firmware update. Download the sansa updater utility at the sandisk website and see if you can upgrade your firmware.
