Sansa c-200 mp3 player ( refresh database screen stuck)

I see a solution to this problem for the sansa e-250, and I tried doing that, but after i get to the found new hardware screen it says my device isnt found? ( I run the recovery tool, and then I get that my specific device isnt found)
It gets on the refresh database screen and goes half way then freezes, thats all it will do besides turn on and off. So, I hold down the record button and then plug into the usb port and then get to running the recovery tool and says my specific model isnt found. Is there a diff solution for my specific model. Its a 2 gb player... I am pretty sure its a c-200, or an e-200... Pretty sure its c-200!
HELP!

I had repeated calls into the sandisk customer center, and eventually, after they tried to help me out, I was asked to send the player back and the company is replacing my player. They told me there is a 4% rate of failure on their products. So, Hopefully after I get the 2nd player, I wont have any other issues with it. I HOPE !!

I had the "Refresh Database" problem with my C250, it just sat there after turning it on! However, the GOOD NEWS is, I corrected it! First I connected it to my PC, then FORMATTED the unit. This gave me an empty player that at least would turn on. Then I downloaded the Sansa "Updater" from the SanDisk website. After setting up the updater software, I connected the C250. It automatically checked for any new firmware, and loaded it into the player. After that I restarted the C250 and it again came up OK without any music loaded. The last thing I did was to load only 1.8 GB worth of music files. My take on the problem is that if you overload the memory, or interupt a file while loading, then the "datbase" function never gets done. I've had mine running for about a week now without problems! Hope it works for you too! <Good Luck> David

Stucked at Refresh database


When the Sansa reads "refreshing database," what it is doing is going through all the songs you've loaded on to it, pulling out the "tag" information (Artist, Album, Song Title, Genre) so it can add this information to its own database which it uses to display the songs to you in its menus.

If it gets stuck during this process, usually it's because of a corrupt song file, or a song file in a format it doesn't understand.

Note that the e280 is only able to play MP3 and WMA audio formats. If you've loaded a different type of audio file onto your Sansa, you'll need to remove them.

If the songs you've recently loaded have all been MP3 and/or WMA, you may have loaded a corrupted file onto your Sansa. Try removing the songs you recently added, and see if the problem goes away.

MP3 needs to refresh DataBase?


You have to many songs a sansa e 250 only holds a certain amount of space so your best bet is to buy a memory card or delete songs so you can add new ones.

Sansa e250 screen is stuck on refresh database


Press the "lock" button to where the Orange is showing. Then press the record button on the left side of the MP3 for a bit. Try this several times. I did it twice and it worked! M.P.

Refresh database freezes


Try updating the firmware of your player. Switch the player to recovery mode (enable hold switch and press and hold the record and power button until you see on the screen welcome to recovery mode) download the sansa firmware updater on the sandisk website and install it to your computer. When it ask to connect the device connect the player and check if there are updates on the player. Also try to format the player it may be the songs on the player is causing the problem.
