Sansa media converter problems

I dont know what happened to it, but I just plugged it in to my computer via USB cable and now when it turns on the Sandisk logo just flashes, fades out, then appears again. I tried to let it keep going until it ran out of battery but when I reconnected it it just did it again. Any assistance would be much appreciated, but I have thought about getting an Ipod lately, and this might be a reason to finally get it. Anyways, if it can't be fixed, could someone let me know what to do with it because I don't want to just throw away expensive pieces of hardware.
Thanks a lot

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.

How To Convert Photos/Videos For A SanDisk Sansa MP3 Player Using The Sansa...


If you own a SanDisk Sansa MP3 player, which includes the Fuze, Clip, Clip +, and View, you may be a little confused as to how to put media on it. However, this is pretty easy with a SanDisk- made program, as long as you follow these simple steps.
You Will Need: SanDisk Sansa MP3 Player, USB Cable, Computer, and Media (Photo, Video, etc.)
  1. First, you will need to download the Sansa Media Converter. This is pretty simple and can be found on the SanDisk website, or you can just click the following link: http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4431/~/downloading-and-launching-the-sansa-media-converter
  2. Once the converter is downloaded, open it and plug your MP3 Player into your computer via a USB port. Next, click "Add Media". You can add as many or as little photos or videos that you want. Click "Convert" and let the program do its magic.
  3. After your files are done converting, they will be automatically stored in a folder entitled "My Album," but you can change that name if you so choose.
  4. From here, you can choose to either save your media to your MP3 player or to a microSD card that you may have separately purchased by clicking the option that you wish to choose. If your MP3 player is connected and you choose no other option, the media will be automatically put onto it if no other option is selected. If not, the media will go to your computer's hard drive.
There you are, this can be used for nearly any photo or video that you wish to put on your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player.
