Hi,you need to rest your mp3 player...

How to Reset a Sansa Clip

The Sansa Clip is a high-quality MP3 player. It holds hundreds of songs and is built for portability. The "clip" allows you to attach it to your clothing or belt while you are working out or on the go. Even the best MP3 players can encounter some problems, and the Sansa Clip is no exception. If your Sansa Clip freezes up and does not respond, you may have to try resetting or reformatting it.

Instructions


Complete Reset

Turn Sansa Clip on. Press the "Menu" (home) button.

Press the bottom of the scroll wheel until you reach the "Settings" screen. Push the center button to choose "Settings."

Scroll down to "Reset All" and select. You'll be asked to confirm the reset. Select "Yes." This option will simply allow you to reset the language and location settings on your Sansa Clip. It will not erase data from the clip. To do a complete factory restore, follow Steps 4 and 5.


In the "Settings" menu, scroll down until you reach "Format" and then select. You will be asked to confirm that you wish to format. Select "Yes."


Wait for the screen to say "Formatting Complete." You have now cleared all the files from your Sansa Clip and reset it to factory settings.

Resetting a Frozen Sansa Clip


Push the power button up and hold it for 20 seconds. Release it, then turn it on again.


Go to the Sansa website and download the "Sansa Firmware Updater."


Select "Run" when the updater installs. (Installation will take less than two minutes.)
.


Wait for the Sansa Firmware Updater to run through its system test. It will ask you to connect the Sansa Clip to the computer to update your Sansa's software.


Connect the Sansa Clip. Remove it from the computer when instructed. If this process does not unfreeze your Sansa Clip, contact Sansa support at the Sansa Firmware Updater website.

Tips & Warnings

You should download the Sansa Firmware Updater to your computer even if you aren't having a problem with your Sansa. This will ensure that your device software remains up-to-date and free of technical glitches.

Reformatting the Sansa Clip will erase all songs and data on the device. Resetting will simply change your player's settings.

My Sansa Clip won't work. When I turn it on it says: Not enough space for music DB Please free 30 MB. But when i connect it to my computer it doesn't register. PLEASE HELP ME


Because you drag 7 drop songs or files too much into the sansa clip in MSC mode, it causes like that.
Turn it on, it will show " Not enough.....free 30 MB", and then automatically turn off. Plug it into pc, open my computer, it will be under name "Sansa clip..." or "removable disk ". If your pc does not recognize it, unplug again and replug it.
Open Sansa Clip..., or removable disk, and delete some songs.
Good luck

My computer does not recognize my sansa clip


font.f1 {font: 12.0px Times} Hello and thanks for contacting FixYa Technical Support.

Anytime there is an issue where your Sansa clip is not recognized by your computer, run the firmware update for your version of Operating system (Windows, Mac or Linux)

Firmware is software for the hardware itself, so if there is a case, where the hardware connecting via a USB port like your Sansa clip is not recognizing, going to the manufacturer's website and updating the firmware for their specific product you purchased, is a step in the right direction.

For your benefit, I have provided the link to the Sansa Support page, where you can download and install the most current firmware update for your Sansa Clip.
Download Sansa Firmware Updater

Also, for regular operation of your Sansa clip, make sure you are following these steps for use of this device:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  1. Turn on the Clip
  2. Put the device in Hold (move Hold button until orange is showing)
  3. Press and hold the Center Button
  4. Plug the mini-USB connector into the device (be sure the USB is plugged into the computer)
  5. Wait for the Clip drive to mount
  6. Follow instructions below and drag files to the Clip drive
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Let me know if this helps.

Regards,

Computer wont recognize sansa clip mp3 player


Reformat clip with disk utility after looking at it like an external disk. Do this by turning it off. Puting it in lock mode. Hold down middle button as you plug it in.

I am mad at my Clip as it did the same thing.

MY SANSA CLIP MP3 PLAYER 2 GB


please check on the backlight settings on the "system set" in the Menu, make sure you have a value in there, but if in case the Sansa itself does not seem to be turning on, the check on the battry if it is charged / overcharged. if you have checked on this area and you had the same issue, then you may want to check on the Backlight or the LEDs of your player, better if you consult the warranty of the player before opting to open theunit up by yourself.

hope this helps.
