Re: Radio Problems

You can try rockbox, from rockbox. org. Its a bit complicated and not as elegant, but it can detect radio stations with plenty of presents availabile for download.

How can I remove SlotRadio advertisement from my Sandisk Sansa Clip + 8Gb. I can't find any SlotRadio files in both UMS and MTP modes.

You will need to manually reinstall the firmware from the Sansa Website

Current version is 01.02.15 (at this date 1/30/11)

On your clip the version number may be followed with an "a"

Your clip should be at least 50% charged or greater before following these steps

DO NOT use the Sansa Updater

1. Download the current firmware for your Clip+ from the Sansa Website

2. Save the zipped firmware ( to a folder you can easily locate (Downloads)

3. Create a new folder naming it what you wish.. (Sansa Firmware)

4. Open the downloaded zipped file( using something like Winrar

5. Delete the file clpp_data.dat (This is the slot radio ad)

6. Extract/unzip the remaining file clppa.bin to the new folder (Sansa Firmware)

7. Plug in your Sansa Clip

8. Drag and drop (copy) the clppa.bin file into the internal memory or root of the clip

9. Unplug the clip from the USB port on your PC

10. The firmware will update and the media will refresh.. and you will no longer have the Slot radio Ad on your clip

Good luck

I have three clips.. 2 of the 2 gb.. 1 of the 4 gb and now a plus 8 gb.. and yes..I too found the banner ad annoying as all get out.

Sansa e260 firmware

Mine was a bit more FUBAR I guess. I have a Sansa e260. I had rockbox on it, went to switch back to the firmware. Uninstalled rockbox and on reboot... the e260 was refreshing the database and then came to a frozen green screen.

My e260 was already in MSC mode. I did the steps above but was still stuck.

The solution that worked was one posted by "Slaughter" on anythingbutipod.

The ultimate fix for all e2xx v1 problems - Format, enter recovery mode, downgrade firmware Link (you'll need to format the drive), reinstall newest firmware via newest Sansa Updater, reload tunes.

I believe all you need to do is go to SanDisk's website, under Downloads, then download the Firmware Updater:
After installation of Sansa Firmware Updater
* Please make sure your Sansa player is in MSC mode before plugging it in.
* Plug in your Sansa player and it will automatically check for updates.

Common questions about the Sansa Updater

Q: What does the Sansa Firmware Updater do?
A: The Sansa Updater is an application that checks for the latest firmware updates then downloads and installs the firmware to your Sansa device. The Sansa Updater is NOT a firmware.

Q: Why do I need to install the Sansa Firmware Updater to download "firmwares"?
A: Once you install the Sansa Updater, you don't have to worry about which firmware to download for your device. Sansa Updater downloads and installs the right firmware for your Sansa device.

Q: Do I need to install the Sansa Firmware Updater everytime there's a new firmware?
A: No, once the Sansa Firmware Updater is installed, future firmware updates are done by just plugging in your device.

Q: What does a "firmware" do?
A: Firmwares contain miscelleneous bug fixes and enhancements.

Q: Which Sansa players is the Sansa Updater compatible with?
A: The e200, c200 and m200 series

Q: Should I "Open","Run" or "Save" when i click on "Download Sansa Firmware Updater"?
A: "Open" and "Run" would automatically start installing the software,. "Save" would save it to your computer and you can run it in the future. We suggest you "Open" or "Run" the installer.

Q: How to change to MSC mode:
A: On your Sansa device, press "menu" and go to "Settings" then "USB" choose "MSC"

Q: How to check for firmware version?:
A: On the e200 and c200, press "menu" and go to "Settings" then "Info"/ "System Info". For m200, press "menu" then "Information".

Sandisk m250 mp3 player

Did you buy it in Europe? It could be a certain model made for Europe not to have FM radio. Or if you bought in the U.S. it should already be activated...

Also, if it has settings see if it has a place for region or country and change it to U.S. if it has it.

Automatically Deleted Radio Presets

Nothing I can say, but try downloading the newest firmware, from the sansa web site. This will most likely fix the problem.
