Go ahead and do this, in case the DB is corrupted:
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/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

My sandisk-sansa mp3 is not getting charged even though its connected .Its a new piece and what should i do


There is a reset switch a small hole through which you can use an office pin to reset. After this use the USB cable to charge from your PC. If any file was loaded use the PC to get access to the memory. Do a full scan of the memory and delete any malware in the sansa.
After this the set might take up charging,if not you must be able to get warranty on the device if it was bought with warranty.
Hope you try this out. good day

My sanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player will not charge anymore. At least not on the computer I'm on. I have had it hooked up to charge for 2 days now and nothing. Why is this and how can I charge it?


This is direct from the sansa FAQs at http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_clip/faqs 02. Why won’t my Sansa Clip charge when I connect it to my computer? USB Cable
Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable.

Computer in Hibernation mode
Make sure that the computer isn’t entering hibernate or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be on in order to charge your player.

USB Port 2.0
Make sure your player is connected USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).

USB Port location
Try plugging in different USB port (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); sometimes the front USB ports have problem charging up the device.

Battery
Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.

Latest firmware
Make sure to update firmware by downloading and installing the Sansa Firmware Updater.

I hope this helps, and don't forget to rate the answer.

Cannot tell when sansa mp3 player is fully charged.


Make sure the hold switch is not engaged - it will interfere with the charging process. Here is a link to the full user's manual:

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.

Battery won't show full charge


I called sandisk. You have to have service pack 2 on your windows XP and you have to have Windows Media Player version 10 or 11. One one of my laptops I had version 9 and it wouldn't work, I changed laptops and it works just fine.
