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.

Hello i am having problems setting my coby mp3 player to the vaio computer so that i can put song on the player i already have my playlist in order but when i press start sync nothing happens what should i...


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. Then following the following the instruction about loading it throuh Windows Media Player: Connect your MP3 player to the computer using the USB cord. Open the Windows Media Player program. When you open the program, your device will be recognized through the "Sync" button on the tool bar that runs across the top of the page. Click on the "Sync" button. To the right a column will appear which says "sync list" at the top. Below the sync list it will say "Drag items here to create sync list." Your library is located in the middle part of the screen. (Your playlists and library listings are in a column to the left.) To select the songs you wish to transfer, simply click on the song and literally drag it over to the listing on the right. When your mouse is over the column, the text will lighten, and a small box with a plus sign will appear. When this happens, let up off the mouse button. The new song will be listed in the sync list. When you have a listing of all the songs you wish to ad, click on the "Start sync" button near the bottom of the column. You will be taken to another screen which will have a listing of the songs you want to add. The computer will sync the songs to the device. When the synchronization is complete, the sync device column will return to the right of the screen. A message will appear letting you know that it is ok for you to disconnect your device. When you unplug the device, the MP3 player should flash a message that says, "Creating (or configuring) library."

How to get videos and photos on it


When you transferred the videos did it say transfer completed? if you are able to transfer and the files are not there...that means your device needs to get a firmware upgdrade..Thats what the corruption of the firmware would do to your device...I would recommend you to try to transfer a song to the device using windows media player..just by going under the sync tab and drag the song to the sync list...if after you transfer the song, it is not there..get a firmware upgrade done in your device...

Songs Not Loading On Player


Did you use Windows Media Player to format?

WMP never does a thorough format.

If so, try formatting thru My Computer. Right Click on the Device (e260) and select FORMAT.

Then try transferring your music again.



Best of Luck.

Loading playlist


The XP Drive letter assignment has nothing to do with Playlists. You need to set the device mode to MSC. Settings>Mode or USB Mode>MSC. Then in Windows Media Player (version 10 or higher) enable auto-sync for the PLAYLISTS only, unless you want all the music force fed to your device everytime you connect. You can add to this question for additional assistance. Best of Luck.
