Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

Transfering Music problems

I had recently fixed my last problem by downloading the newest firmware or something from the Sandisk site. Well, after I downloaded it and my Sansa was updated, i went to put some more music on it. Usually I had been hooking it up to my computer and syncing with Windows Media Player. I had no problems in the past, but after i had updated it, I can't get music from WMP to my sansa. When i try to use the media conveter, I go to the folders with all my music in them, and they're empty. I have no clue what's wrong it it. Can anyone help?

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

I want to download certain songs to my new Ipod shuffle. I do not want to download everthing Is there a way to choose which songs you want to put on your ipod?


The only songs you can download have to come from the iTunes store. Set up an account with a credit card, and you can order single songs, albums or videos, plus some free content. Some albums are sold as whole albums, but that is not the norm.

If you have music on your computer, you can download iTunes to it, and try and drag tracks by having the iTunes window open to your iPod, and the other pane open to your music. Highlight and Right Click Drag - Copy here.

The legit way is to pay Apple $38 to allow you to put non iTunes music on their device.

Check and replace the main digital board. It is faulty. In most cases main board replacement might be followed by a firmware update too. If you wish to get more details visit the site linked here.

Where do i find a firmware update for RCA DTV_SLD50ARQ-2015. and how do i install it since it tells me download metadata fail


You must follow the instruction at the RCA website to update the firmware, my advice? If the player is working ok leave it alone, firmware updates if done incorrectly (one small missed step or mistake) can and do render the device being updated useless.

Unplug the unit from ac power. Remove the battery. Wait a minute. Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. (Yes, I know, nothing will happen visible). Replace battery. Plug unit back in. Now try the power button and see if the unit resets. Sometimes this helps when all else fails especially with a computer which has "hung up" like yours. Let me know if this worked!
