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.

Got the small pink clip on style for Christmas. Went to recharge on my pc and it would not charge in the front USB port. Had to charge it in one of the back USB ports. Charged just fine, but now our computer(old Dell 2000 windows XP) is no longer working so we bought a new Dell Insprion. Cannot recharge it on my new computer. Called Dell and they said there is nothing they can do. Bought a 4 place USB universal charger and it will not charge it either. Not sure if this will help anybody, just sharing my experience.

Deleting songs


connect your MP3 player to the computer with a USB cord. click My Computer you should see RCA Lyra. Next,
go into windows and open up a folder --- any folder will do (you can use one on your desktop if you like) once the folder opens, please click the little arrow around the top of the folder. you should see it say :
Desktop,
My Documents,
My computer
c:\
(and which ever drives you have on your pc) please look for one called:
RCA_LYRA.

once you see that one, please click on it.
then, what you will see in your folder is all of the music you have inside your mp3 player. even those disturbing audio files that they put into our players.

To delete those files, and any mp3 songs, highlight them, and press delete. then press ok and there you are. if you would like to move the songs to your computer, just highlight them and drag them onto your desktop, or another folder, or where ever yopu would like to put them.

once your done, just unplug and there you go (oh! you can also add files to your player this way. just add them into the folder with your mp3 pluged in).
altight, hope that helps. i hope you all have a nice day and take care. cheers..."

How to delete songs


To delete the songs on your RCA, attach the usb cord to your computer, and turn on your rcy lyra mp3 player.
(if you dont have any pc then you could do this from a friends (or evern an internet cafe) pc as well, it doesnt hurt or harm anything and theres no need to install anything either)
.
Next,
go into windows and open up a folder --- any folder will do (you can use one on your desktop if you like) once the folder opens, please click the little arrow around the top of the folder. you should see it say :
Desktop,
My Documents,
My computer
c:\
(and which ever drives you have on your pc) please look for one called:
RCA_LYRA.

once you see that one, please click on it.

How to clear the mp3 player and put new songs on it


Take off the USB cap on the side, and plug that end into the USB of a computer. The "My Computer" window should open and the screen on the mp3 should turn on. At this time, you can copy/paste songs onto the new drive that appears. (probably drive F: or D: ) When you're done, make sure to unmount the drive. On some Windows computers, there will be a new icon on the taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Right click that and choose "safely remove hardware". Then click "stop", then "OK". When it says you can remove it, make sure the mp3 doesn't have a loading animation. (not the battery animation)

On Unix computers, right click the drive on the desktop and choose "unmount". Make sure you wait for the loading animation on the mp3 to finish. Then you can remove the mp3 from the USB port.

To remove songs, you do the same thing, but instead of copying and pasting, you just select the songs you don't want on it and choose delete. (If you're on a Unix computer, delete the ".trash" folder as well(it's a hidden file) or else the songs will remain.)

There's also a way to transport files back and forth with Windows Media Player, but I haven't tried it yet.

Firmware for mp3???


because you formatted your mp3 thru the computer, if your mp3 has an option in its sytem you may format it here. and you should download the songs thru the sonique stage, you can not transfer directly coming from your win amp or windows media player because of different file format

When you put songs on your mp3 player don't put them in folders if you do.

Also did your mp3 player come with any software, you may need to use the software in order to put songs on.

When you've finished putting songs on do your safely remove your mp3 player from the computer, if not that could be your problem.

Also it could be anything from a small read error, try formating your mp3 player which may fix this problem to do so follow these steps below:

First connect your mp3 player to the computer, once you've done that go to "Start" - "My Computer" - now look for something called "Removable Disk" which is your mp3 player, once you've found it "Right-click" on it then click "Format", once format as complete put music back on your mp3 player, then see if the problems been fixed.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way. Further problems, leave a comment on here and i will get back to you a.s.a.p.
