    My Sansa and my PC are obviously not communicating. My Sansa does not show up as a device in the Media Player; the Sansa screen shows "Refreshing database", then (sometimes) "Writing", then "Connected" and the cycle starts all over. It doesn't matter if I plug the cable into the front USB port or the back ... yet my son's Sansa works fine on my PC from any port. (My Sansa wasn't connecting thru the front port so the Sansa technician told me to use the back port ... that there wasn't enough electricity going through the front port.)

SOURCE: cant delete songs

reformat it. 1. right click on my computer and select manage. 2. go to disk management on the left panel. 3. right click on the sansa icon, and go to format. 4. make sure that the file system is under FAT32. This worked for me, hope it does for you.

SOURCE: 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.

Screen shot here:
Sansa clip not recognized.

CHARGING A 1 DAY USED SANDISK SANSA MP3 4G


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.

Broken mp3


The description that says it holds 250 songs is an estimate - there are zero mp3 players on the market that actually hold the number of songs that the box/product sheet advertises. Those estimates are based on low-quality songs that are approximately 2 minutes in length each. So, it sounds very reasonable that 174 songs would fill the player's memory.

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.

Song problem


If your songs are already in mp3 format than they must have been probably saved in 256 or 320 kbps. That is a waste of space since human ear can't tell the difference between anything higher than 192 kbps. For mp3 player it is more than enough to save songs with 128 kbps, especially if you're only using headphones. If the song takes approximately 4000 KB than you could fit close to 500 songs on 2GB mp3 player like yours. So, you need to check the beat rate of the songs and make convert those with beat rate over 192 to 192 or 128 which is just fine.

Few issues with my sansa..


Sounds like your music may have become corrupt.

You can follow these steps to erase and start anew.

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://rapidshare.com/files/67740173/e200fw01.00.12.exe____

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.




Best of Luck.

Problem adding songs


Either get a new version of this song (meaning get a different file with the same song you chose) or keep trying to syncronize it on the sansa.
