Lambour - go to Sandisk website for Vista drivers

ravi, pdebra -

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

I have a svp mp300 media box. When i plug the device into the computer i bring up the mp3 file and copy and paste the music and it shows as being in that file. however when i disconnect the device and go...


I had the same problem and finally figured out that the music was going to the device, but it was not under the mp3 file. If you go to 'computer', then click on the drive you have it plugged into you can drag the files into the mp3 file.

AMT MP3 PLAYER USB 2 DEVICE VIRUS PROBLEM


It could be that _your_ computer is virus-infected, and it tries to infect any device that you connect to your computer.

Find some other computer with "current" and "good" anti-virus software.

Connect the device to that computer.

The anti-virus software should both _detect_ and _remove_ the computer-virus from the device.

Then, on your computer, download and run the Microsoft MRT (Malware Removal Tool): http://support.microsoft.com/kb/890830/

Also, on your computer, download and run the virus-scanner from: http://www.prevx.com
to "clean" your computer.

Then, once your computer is "clean", connect all the USB devices that you have, and virus-scan each one of them.
