Check for a file that will end in the extention .bin. u may have to enable view hidden files and folders in the folder options in the tools drop down menu. copy that. then, if you need it back, just paste it back into the mp3 player

follow the instructions below to get the sansa firmware updater to make sure that the firmware for your payer is updated automatically:
METHOD 1 - Download and manually update the Sansa m200 

NOTE: The manual update does NOT support firmware version 4.X.XXX. Refer to METHOD 2 if the firmware on your Sansa m200 is either 4.X.XXX.

I NEED DESPERATE HELP


If Windows Media Player is not recognizing the player, try the volume +/Recovery method and then reformat the player inside Windows Media Player.

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.

Sansa m240: 0 MB after wrong firmware update


If your Sansa does not recognize MSC (Mass Storage Class) mode, then your PC will not be able to communicate properly to it. Sandisk can fix it but you will have to email support@sandisk.com, to ask them how to proceed from here. Give them the following information: 1) Sansa device model 2) Firmware version on your device 3) What computer OS you have 4) Problem you're experiencing (what you've done) ZT3000 Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

Sandisk sansa problem


This error message may largely be due to the corrupted Music Database file that the Sansa M240 creates to maintain an information pool on the music files downloaded to it. Normally, if you are unable to completely format the player in Windows Explorer, there are still 2 other (and actually, more recommended) options that you have: (1) Switching the M240 to MSC mode and formatting in "Disk Management". You can get to this window by right-clicking the "My Computer" icon and selecting "Manage". Make sure that you use the FAT file system to optimize the 1GB memory (2) Switching the M240 to MTP mode and formatting the player in Windows Media Player 10 or version 11. The mode of the M240 can be changed by accessing the menu and going to "Settings", then choosing "USB" In general, formatting the player in "Disk Management" is more effective than formatting it in Windows Explorer. Also, it would be a good idea to upgrade the player's firmware to the latest version via the SanDisk website: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 I hope this helps. The M240 is a great player.
