SOURCE: refresh database message

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select format when prompted. http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe 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.

I cannot acses my ipod from computer to update my songs


First, plug both ends if the wire in the right places. Then, after you log in, turn on your mp3 player. My Sansa Fuze will appear in the My Computer folder; yours probably will too. To add anything, you have to access it from My Computer-> [name of mp3 player] ->Music/Video/Pictures to add these things. While you're pasting stuff to the mp3 player, the screen of the mp3 player will say "writing"- don't unplug your mp3 player until the screen just says "connected". The media will refresh, and the content should be available

First you need to redownload the firmware. That is something that you can download straight from the manufacture. Then you want to unplug your mp3 player and go to settings. In the bottom of your settings it should have a option to restore to factory settings.

Sansa clip is stuck on Refresh Database Screen.


1ST: Just try to 'reset' by holding down the main center button AND pushing UP on the lock/off-on button, for about 8-9 seconds,
It will then 'refresh' the database, shouldn't lose anything,
OR:
MANY problems can be fixed ultimately by the following;
REFORMAT the SansaDisk Clip by finding it in My Computer and right click then just 'format' the thing. THEN drag and drop new music into it (or books), DRAG and DROP, you apparently erase the thing with a 'FORMAT' ....BUT - it's .sys files remain and it is like new {as in empty}
This usually fixes almost anything, should even erase a virus (I'm guessing) but shouldn't hurt it.
Good Luck!

-simple 'drag and drop' from my MUSIC folder seems to work just fine for me...

Frozen on Refresh Database


Take out the four screws on the back and pop out the battery then put it back on. Make sure you synced the songs properly. Add to the problem how you added your songs and I might be able to help.
Good Luck
