Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player
Back when i got my mp3 player, i screwed things up when i was uploading music. now, for whatever reason, some files are corrupted and i can't seem to get them off my mp3 player. when i go into "my computer" and then click on the shortcut to look at the files on my mp3 player, i can't find the ones that i want to delete, like, there's no file for them. but when i turn on my mp3 player, there are literally hundreds of corrupted songs.
is there a way that i can "reboot" my sansa e280 and just start over new?
in my mp3 are many forder that i can not delete and some songs that will not play.
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, 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.
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/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
