I have fixed this, and I hate this player, however this is the solution

I've uploaded ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED on this rapidshare link, I format my player and bringit back to life with only this...
http://rapidshare.com/files/106001227/Player.rar.html

1.- unrar to the player
2.- try if it works, if not go to 2.1
2.1.- install the software, included in the rar file, then try if it works it should

IMPORTANT: when you have manage to make it work do this, it will save you a lot of time

1.- browse your player to the system/data folder and backup those files, if you get any future troubles (like no music found, strange characters instead of artist's list) replace those files with your backup, backup those files always after adding new music!!!

2.- save the rar file I've uploaded, if you have the wmp plugin already installed and you get the "Oh dear this hard disk doesn't work" message again, just format the player, and put every single file from the rar to the player

3.- excuse my english...
any further problems --> msn: sebastianoo7@hotmail.com

4.- help other virgin 5gb users

I downloaded music and now my mp3 player wont turn on what could i do to fix it?


Your problem is not related with the music you downloaded. Usually a way to solve this kind of failure is to leave on player utill the battery is completely discharged, then connect it and hope the best. If still won't turn on, probably you have a problem with the firmware of your player because you removed it incorrectly. from the USB port. Most time nothing happens but sometimes this might damage your player. If it's on warranty, take it back to seller's authorized store, but if failure is for incorrect manipultion of the player, warrant won't cover it.

Connect your Media Player into computer.Download a data recovery software to recover your pictures and music.For data recovery program,I have used Tenorshare Data Recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your media player to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted. By the way,you can download it and scan your media player for free to preview whether your pictures and music etc. can be recovered.Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm

Cant play


I know this is not what your hoping for but you may not be able to recover the music you deleted.

The only types of folders you can recover which you delete are boot device folders and connection device folders which are hiddn within' your mp3 player fodler anyway's so i doubt you could delete them anway.

You'll probably have to download the music again or if you've got them saved on your computer re-tranfere them.

Hope my advice was helpful, (Sorry I couldn't be that much of assistance.)

Strange symbols & numbers on some music files


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.
