    i used the e200fw01.00.12 recovery and the USB mode is set to MSC.

    What is the os?

  • mateo1 Feb 11, 2008

    it starts fine and the computer reconizes the player as a drive. i had music on it yesterday but i put another album on it and then i restarted and it refreshed the player clearing all my music

    ok thanks for trying

  • mateo1 Feb 12, 2008

    by the way i fixed it for the moment. when i recovered the player with e200fw01.00.12 recovery program and formated it a second time the memory came back and now i am able to put files on it again.

    os it´s a shorter name for operativ system it´s like xp,vista,98 (microsoft)

    or mac... or linux

    so can you start the mp4?

    does it boot´s like it should?

    ... does it connects to the computer?

    .. you maby can just format the musik and video partition

    i know some tricks about this but it´s good to take 1 step at the time.. you may sometimes think it can´t be more bricked but it can !

Load main screen imaged fialed switch to recovery mode...

Reset All
If your device freezes up press the Menu button and hold for 15 seconds.
This is like a power down of the device. Once you perform the reset, the adjustments you made during last operation
will be gone.....IF that doesn't work try to the update software and install then lock your sansa hold in the rec key on the left at the same time push the menu/power button this will take you to recovery mode then connect to the computer Star the update software if it doesn't start automatic goto /start /all programs /Sandisk/sansa updater/ sansa updater and start it up manually... follow instructions on the updater and the sansa hope this works.... Please rate

How do I recover a recording deleted accidentally from Sansa e250

It is possible to recover your lost recordings.

First things first: DO NOT take any more recordings with the MP3 that you want to recover records from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of recovery.

Then Connect the MP3 to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive" or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a data recovery utility that will recover your recordings with Wondershare Recovery Software from the following link:

Video Audio Photo Recovery (if you are running Windows OS)
Mac Data Recovery (from MacUpdate site)

Do NOT try & write anything back to your MP3 until you can recover your recordings safely!

Acomdata external harddrive gone blank.

dont copy any data from or too the disk then use recover software. like Recover My Files, and if you copy any data to that disk it will damage the data you want.
