My sand disk sansa mp4 keeps on freezing on the music play all the time and the computer cannot read it

How to Reset a Sansa Clip

The Sansa Clip is a high-quality MP3 player. It holds hundreds of songs and is built for portability. The "clip" allows you to attach it to your clothing or belt while you are working out or on the go. Even the best MP3 players can encounter some problems, and the Sansa Clip is no exception. If your Sansa Clip freezes up and does not respond, you may have to try resetting or reformatting it.

Turn Sansa Clip on. Press the "Menu" (home) button.

Press the bottom of the scroll wheel until you reach the "Settings" screen. Push the center button to choose "Settings."

Scroll down to "Reset All" and select. You'll be asked to confirm the reset. Select "Yes." This option will simply allow you to reset the language and location settings on your Sansa Clip. It will not erase data from the clip. To do a complete factory restore, follow Steps 4 and 5.

In the "Settings" menu, scroll down until you reach "Format" and then select. You will be asked to confirm that you wish to format. Select "Yes."

Wait for the screen to say "Formatting Complete." You have now cleared all the files from your Sansa Clip and reset it to factory settings.
Resetting a Frozen Sansa Clip

Push the power button up and hold it for 20 seconds. Release it, then turn it on again.

Go to the Sansa website and download the "Sansa Firmware Updater."

Select "Run" when the updater installs. (Installation will take less than two minutes.)

Wait for the Sansa Firmware Updater to run through its system test. It will ask you to connect the Sansa Clip to the computer to update your Sansa's software.

Connect the Sansa Clip. Remove it from the computer when instructed. If this process does not unfreeze your Sansa Clip, contact Sansa support at the Sansa Firmware Updater website.

Tips & Warnings

You should download the Sansa Firmware Updater to your computer even if you aren't having a problem with your Sansa. This will ensure that your device software remains up-to-date and free of technical glitches.
Reformatting the Sansa Clip will erase all songs and data on the device. Resetting will simply change your player's settings.

Have a nice day....

My Sansa Clip won't work. When I turn it on it says: Not enough space for music DB Please free 30 MB. But when i connect it to my computer it doesn't register. PLEASE HELP ME

Because you drag 7 drop songs or files too much into the sansa clip in MSC mode, it causes like that.
Turn it on, it will show " Not 30 MB", and then automatically turn off. Plug it into pc, open my computer, it will be under name "Sansa clip..." or "removable disk ". If your pc does not recognize it, unplug again and replug it.
Open Sansa Clip..., or removable disk, and delete some songs.
Good luck

When I turn on my SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player all it has on it is record and ready, I used to have a bunch of music on it and I don't know what I did , I did try to download a book once,I think I did...

  • First you could try to RESET the Sansa Clip as next:
1. Turn the player on (shortly switch the power switch up)
2. Slide and hold the power switch up for 15-20 seconds
3. Release the power switch
The reset is completed
4. Shortly slide the power switch up
Check if the player functions normally again.

  • When the reset does NOT help next steps will be required:
1. Put the player in MSC mode: this way a computer recognizes the player as a removable disk.
How to put the Sansa Clip in MSC mode:
1.1 Turn device OFF.
1.2 Slide the Hold switch down to Lock (orange color showing).
1.3 Press and hold the center button while connecting the device to the PC.

2. Backup the media content on the player to the computer.
Connect the player to the computer and backup the files to the PC,
exploring "My Computer" in the removable disk.

3. Perform a firmware reinstallation / firmware update.
Use next link for updating the Clip's firmware:
The Sansa Firmware Updater execute file is mentioned as installer
for getting the matching updates for the Sansa Clip.
Direct to the Sansa Firmware Updater execute file with next link:
Right click the link above and select "Save Target As..." for saving the
installer to a location on the computer.
Double click the execute file after the download has completed to run it.

Is there driver/ software for Win ME for the Sansa Clip mp3?

a friend told me that if the device shows as"connected" when hooked up (it does) AND the battery charges correctly (it does), then (a)the USB connection had enough juice; and (b) the PC recognizes it - i just had to FIND it. device manager/ MyComputer: nada; same for ANY file/ folder with "sansa" or "sandisk." working thru WMP (Windows Media Player), however, I discovered that drive E - for a portable hard drive, NOT currently connected via USB - was STILL showing up in the "Copy to CD or device" field. sure enough, it was the SanDisk clip player (even though it was NOT under the "Recognized Portable Devices" subsection). without using the installation disk at all, it downloaded tunes just fine. *note: the installation disk seemed to be an .exe file ONLY for the Rhapsody music service. as noted above, it was unnecessary. also - my USB ports are 1.1 and not 2.0, and package stated USB 2.0 was a "minimum requirement" - not true*

San Disk Sansa Clip 4 GB

Decided against buying the San Disk Sansa Clip because it does not appear to be Mac compatible. I do not like Windows applications as they always fail or cause other problems.

Computer wont recognize sansa clip mp3 player

Reformat clip with disk utility after looking at it like an external disk. Do this by turning it off. Puting it in lock mode. Hold down middle button as you plug it in.

I am mad at my Clip as it did the same thing.

Sansa clip not recognized.
