I plugged in my Sansascan disk once and wasn't patient enough to wait for it to finish downloading the songs that it was writing, so I just un-plugged it without ejecting it on my computer first. Now when I turn it on it won't do anything at all. It only shows the animated monster and says scan-disk. Plus, when I plug it into my computer it won't do one thing. Nothing will pop up on my desktop to show that it is even plugged in!!!

Connect your device to a computer using the usb cord. If your getting songs from the internet try to select songs from your source and download it first to your pc's hard drive. Once all the selected songs are downloaded, access the files and press ctrl A to select all the songs and right click the mouse. In the drop down command select SEND TO and choose the location of the removable disk that represents your device. Wait until the downloading is finished. If you have any other concerns just write a comments on this topic. Thank you.
Go to this link and select your unit in the download wizard and download the drivers for your device. Install the drivers without the Clip MP3 plugged in. Once the drivers are installed, you can then plug in the Clip MP3 and windows should correctly identify your new hardward and finish installing the drivers for it.
There may be a easier solution But plug it into your computer Then, in the go to my computer in your start area. you should have a removable disk (D:), this is your player.
Right click on the tab and go to Format, click on quick format and then start.
The next window that should pop up will say that it will may erase all
the files on the device. That is ok. It will erase all the music you
had on there, but that is easy enough to load back on.
Wait for it to finish, unplugg it, turn it on, and you should be good. All you have to do now is reload the music! But make sure you dont exceed 2gb or you may have to do this again
Run the Sansa Recovery Tool from Sandisks' website and start over from scratch. Usually this problem is caused by trying to transfer too many songs at once, but any number of Rhapsody errors could have caused this.
depending on how big the songs are say 4 mintues or longer this will determine how many songs will be allowed in the mp3 player
this was in your manual and front of box when purchased in detail about the length of music and not using scan disk
scandisk is a good way to ruin a mp3 player
scandisk is used to fix programs on a move able storage device (hard drive) with moving parts your mp3 is a microchip that stores info no moving parts reccomend a full format of mp3 and reapply your songs
