Hi i hoked my sansa mp3 player in to the usb and then i took it out and didnt turn on what do i do

You are suppose you use the safely remove hardware option,
you just don't unplug a usb devise without telling windows
to release it.

Remove the battery, then put it back in, restart windows and plug it in,
wait till it see;s it, then in the bottom rt corner of windows in your
taskbar is a little pic of a usb plug, mouse over it and click it, a window will pop up that say stop devise. Make sure you know what letter is listed
under my computer for it, it might be E,or F.

I have an sansa sandisk 2 gig model m250. How do I delete contents that I loaded?

Plug it into your computer via the usb cord and bring up the players contents on My Computer>Player and delete the contents within the folders you want, most likely the Music Folder.

Sansa Clip MP3

Go into My Computer and see if anything pops up once you plug the Sansa in. If it pops up open it up from there. Sometimes this kick starts an Mp3 to install itself.

Sansa clip 2 gig computer doesnt find

This is the method that will force Windows to recognize the Sansa: 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.

Sansa logo appears-nothing else

Hey have you tried installing a flash player I believe thats the format it works on, It should be installed with your windows media player but maybe it is not. You can try that and see if it works after that, I sure Hope it does, When you plug it in you can't see it in my computer under F disk or D or E disk, try it no promises but I am trying for you Oh yeah Look in your device manager when you plug it in and see if you get a yellow Question mark by a usb connection, If you do open the properties on that mark and update make sure you are on line when you do this, Man I sure hope this helps u out I hate when something just won't work and its something simple, Well If not I will research more for you, It makes me mad It won't work for you. Let me Know Hey and Happy Holidays
