If your Sansa Connect won’t start check to make sure the device is
charged and the hold switch is in the unlocked position. If the device still
will not start, you may need to run the Sansa Device Recovery application.
With a copy of the Sansa Device Recovery application installed on a PC,
you can connect your to the device via the USB cable to the PC, and
restore the device software to an uncorrupted state. However, all of your
subscription settings and content will be removed from the device.

or google the sansa connect recovery tool

Problem with max. volume


Not Mac compatible largely.

ALL Mp3 players have a disclaimer telling you not to play it at max volume. Get adjustable headphones to resolve problem

I have Sanso m250 2.0gb mobel. Logo screen is appearing when i power on after that i am unable to play the mp3 songs or play FM Radio etc..


Try doing a hard reset on a Sansa m250:
  1. Turn off the Sansa. Just pull the battery out for a second.
  2. Plug the Sansa into a computer4.gif, and open "My Documents" in the computer.
  3. Open the Sansa file as if it were a drive, then go to the "MUSIC4.gif Specific storage" file.
  4. Right click the "MUSIC Specific storage" file, and press "Format."
This should hard reset the Sansa m250. I do not know if this will work on other Sansa m200 type .mp3 players. You can start over with your playlists. This has worked for me.

Not enough space to listen


If it''s any consolation, the same thing happened to me after I loaded about 1.6 GB (~250 MB left) of music on my Sansa m250. I tried to delete the required 8MB, but the directory structure got destroyed to the point where my computer wouldn''t recognize the device. I called their technical support and they''re having me send it back to them for a replacement! It''s not you, but the player! I don''t know if there''s anything that can be done from a consumer standpoint.
