    The format wouldn't work when connected to the computer but the integral format fixed the problem.

Reformat the player:

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 lost the download cable for my Exilim camera. There is a picture in the internal memory that I really, really need! How do I transfer the picture in the internal memory on to a memory card?


This procedure will copy all files from internal memory to a memory card.

1. Load the memory card to which to copy the files.

2. Turn on the camera, enter the PLAY mode, and press the MENU button.

3. On the "PLAY" tab, select "Copy" and then press right-arrow.

4. Use up/down-arrows to select "Built-in->Card" and then press SET.

Wait until the Busy message disappears before doing anything else. After the transfer the last file transfered will appear on the display.

How to I start the c240 up it My computer doesnt


On Windows XP, when you open My Computer, the Sansa C240 shows up at the bottom, under "Other". Because of DRM restrictions, you cannot copy media files to the C240 using Windows Explorer. You have to use Windows Media Player to sync playlists to the C240 (WinAmp can do it also).
I also suggest that you check out RockBox. It's an alternative operating system for portable media players and they have a version for the Sansa C240. It will give you some additional functionality.
As far as I can tell, to copy files to the microSD card (if you're using one) you have to use a media card reader, then insert the card into the C240.

The photo files that aren't showing up don't meet the specification in some way or another - they aren't jpeg, the resolution is wrong, or the file size is wrong. Transferring music files from card in mp3 player to computer may not be possible - connect mp3 player to computer, double-click my computer, and open photos folder or any other folder that looks relevant - see if the said photo files are in there. If not, then you are out of luck.

Getting music on to my KG800 mobile phone


I had the same thing with my KF510 but I don't know if it will be the same with your phone. When you connect the phone via the USB cable you will see two removable drives in My Computer ( I have Windows XP) one is the phones internal memory the other is the memory stick.
Drag and drop the MP3 files onto the memory stick - BUT - make sure you drag the files onto a folder in the drive not just onto the drive icon as if they are not in a folder ( on mine the folder is called Sounds) the phone won't find them.
To see the folders on the drive icon just double click the icon or right click - explore.
Hope this helps you.
