Hi,it's not updated that's why . You need to upgrade with firmware.


Follow this instruction:

Things You'll Need:

  • A MP3 Player
  • A Computer with an Internet Connection
Verify that the player is fully charged.

Verify the the player is unplugged from your computer.
Go to the Mp3 support site, linked below, select your player, and download the Sansa Firmware Updater software. Follow the instructions for installing it on your computer. If you need them, you may also download user manuals for your or watch how-to videos on updating the firmware.
Put the player in MSC mode. Go to the settings menu, select the USB submenu, and then select MSC. Some players with early firmwares do not have the USB options in the menu. If this is the case with your device, then there is another way to force it into MSC mode: Put the device in "hold" mode by sliding the hold switch until orange is visible. Next, press and hold the left (rewind) button until the screen changes. Go to the next step.
Plug your mp3 player into your computer and wait. The Firmware updater should launch automatically. Follow the prompts to update your player. Be certain not to unplug your player until the updater is finished. The software will tell you when it is safe to disconnect.

Tips & Warnings
  • If the above does not work for any reason, there is another way to update the firmware, by manually installing the necessary files. Consult the official support forum for specific instructions for your device. See the link below.
  • Be sure not to unplug your device while it is being updated. This could permanently ruin it.

I have a sansa mp3 e280 and when i turn it on it says load image failed


i am assuming the image file means the boot loader, the problem is a bad flash can cause this mostly. also note that if you tried to update the firmware you will have to either re flash it. or send to factory for repair. better to not update new components.firmware if this is the case, they often become bricked units.

I have problems with format erros from limewire


Maybe you can check at the end of the music file and make sure they are no other extension. Also, it could be that the mp3 files are encoded into a higher or lower codec which your device cant read. Check properly the files you download.

MY NEXTAR MA9336A1S IS STUCK ON THE NEXTAR SCREEN


Since the operating system and navigation software are preloaded into the internal flash memory of the GPS, the freezing may either be software or hardware failure. First, press the "Reset" button or push the stylus into the "Reset" hole, to see if the navigation software can load successfully. If the program still does not load, then the software may be corrupted. Also, if the internal memory fails to read or write and the software cannot load properly, it may be caused by hardware failure. In either case, please return the unit for exchange or repair to the retail location from which you purchased it, or contact us for further assistance.

If you clicked "yes" to an Update for your device, then all your songs have been wiped. Firmware Upgrades and Repairs (whether performed knowingly or unknowingly), will delete all songs from your GoGear.

Alternatively, when you have automatic synchronization set up for Windows Media Player, then re-syncing to the device when the songs don't exist on your computer will also cause the GoGear to be wiped. It's a feature of WMP that I don't like.

make sure they are mp3 format and that you are putting them in the mp3 folder and that you are putting them on the card's drive, not the built in memory drive. To find out which is the card drive, take a picture with the card in, and which ever drive has that picture is the same drive you need to put the mp3's in.
