Make sure the hold/lock is not enagged
Try another USB port
If that fails:
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.

Try a soft reset by holding the power button for 10 seconds.
if that doesn't do it, your gonna have to try a full reset.
Starting with the power OFF (touch the center button to see ifthere's any activity), slide the power switch DOWN to the HOLDposition, exposing the wee orange dot.
On your PC, open a Windows Explorer window (My Computer).
Holdthe << rewind button of the scroll wheel down, while plugging it in to your computer. Keep that button held downuntil it pops up on the PC. Look for the"Found New Hardware" balloon in the system tray.
If it pops up, then try re-partitioning it
Go to this thread, and download a copy of the 1.01.11 firmware ( http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board/message?board.id=sansafuse&thread.id=210) .
Downloadand install a new copy of the firmware as shown in that thread. BeSURE to unzip the file prior to proceeding. The extracted file will be15,360 Kbytes, named fuzea.bin. Shrink the WindowsExplorer window a wee bit, so that you can easily drag and drop thefuzea.bin binary file into the root directory of the Fuze. This isrepresented by the open Windows Explorer window; don't drop the fileinto any of the visible folders, but into the main box, representingthe root directory.
Once that's done, the display will gofrom "writing" to "connected" on the Fuze, you can disconnect thedevice. What we're looking for is the message "firmware upgrade inprogress" on the device.
Power up the Fuze, and select your language if that screen in active. Then format the device by using the Fuze's settings mode.
Also, remove the memory card if you have one in before all of this just to be safe.
Let me know if this works.
