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.

SanDisk Memory Cards & USB Flash Drives Data error cyclic redundancy check


Try this, go to start, all programs, accessories, now RT click on command prompt and pick run as Admin.

Now type chkdsk G:

G is what ever the card shows as, in your PC, so if your card shows as E: then use E.

When it's done you will see C:\windows\system 32

Wait it might take a while.

Now type DiskPart

wait, you will see a few lines one says microsoft and when it's ready you will see it say


DiskPart> rescan

So after DISKPART> type rescan

Now try and delete everything from the card and do a quick format.

If this didn't work, you'll have to shell out 7.00 for a new card.

Cyclic redundancy error when copying backed up files into Itunes


Files with cyclic redundancy errors means these files are corrupted and cannot be copied. Since you cannot copy these files from your faulty hard disk again then these songs are lost and you need to download them again.

I keep getting a "cyclic redundancy check error"


Hi,
It could be a few things that's wrong.
Check that the lens on the CD drive is clean and also make sure that the install disk is clean and free of scratches and then try to reinstall the game again.
There could also be some bad sectors on the drive your trying to install too, to check this right click on the C drive and select "properties", then select "tools" tab, in the tools option check the volume for errors.



Good luck
