My sansa disk is froze on the refreshing media screen

This happens often with Sansa Media Players, your best bet is to delete all your songs off the device, then re-add them again. But this time have your device on hold, which is having the switch at the top of the device pushed to the right side. This will make sure nothing happens while the device is syncing.

Help i can't open my sansa E200

Go to the place where you bought your Sansa E200 and ask them to have the firmware reinstalled. Most mp3/mp4 players crashes its firmware when you are working on something and the battery goes down. There is nothing wrong with your gadget's harware, just a software issue.. that's all.

A Simple Thank You is Good enough

Uploading songs on it

you could try putting it into recovery mode if it's like the sansa e200 series. to do this plug it into your computer and click the hold button so the orange is showing. next, hold down the record button while pushing and holding the power button at the same time. after a few seconds it should go into recovery mode and factory settings will restore. this works for sansa e200's and i hope yours is almost the same as them. try the sansa forums though they could help alot.

best of luck

To format your Sansa E200 series MP3 player:

IMPORTANT: Make sure you have backed up all of your data from the device before continuing with the format. Procedure will erase everything off the player. Agree to the warning.
5. The format will complete. Close the format window and your player should be ready to use.
