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.

My mp3 player won't display the music i've downloaded onto it but when I hook it up to the computer it shows that the music is on the device. Why is that?


Itunes wont block other music from appearing, but it is possible that you stored the music in an incorrect folder. Try and make sure the "missing" music is located on the same folder as the Itunes music and this should resolve the problem.

My computer recognize my new ipodtouch like a ipod digital camera - the operating system is XP Professional with SP3. itunes 7 don´t recognize the ipodtouch and the new iTunes 8 i can´t...


Haven't hit that problem but best option = uninstall all apple software and reinstall then add the touch. Make sure you export your music library before you uninstall. Also make sure there is a reboot after the uninstall and that the device is NOT connected during this time. By the way - It is normal for the ipod to show as a usb drive but it should also show in itunes. Make sure you install the latest itunes.One good thing to note is that it IS showing up as a usb drive and that means there are no issues with USB.

Make sure you have media player 11
If you can, the best test is to try your player with another PC, to see if you still have the problem. This localises whether the problem is with the PC (most likely the USB) or the player. See the link below (search on "connection problems") for a lot more troubleshooting on this.

Well I'd suggest that you uninstall it from your computer then reinstall it. This is a common solution to most problems similar to this.

Perhaps you still have it in "hold" position.
Otherwise, reinstall the software or try to put music on by adding the folders direct into the Phillips with the explorer.
