Question about SanDisk Sansa e130 MP3 Player
I hope this may help you, as it did for me. You can usually use Google to find older versions of the firmware (this is the stuff that makes the player function correctly when you power it on) at least that is the best definition I can give you! You can save the firmware to your PC, then connect the player to begin reloading the firmware that way, I would suggest going to SanDisk's website (sandisk.com) but for older units, they may not have the firmware available for that model anymore. Anyway, no you do not have to have the unit hooked up (unless you want to) and having the SD card in the player will not effect nor mess up so long as you make sure that you download the firmware to the Sansa, and not onto the removable disc. Good Luck, and I hope it works for you!

Tips for a great answer:
Before updating the firmware, be sure to verify and complete the following procedures:
Back up all audio, video, image or data files stored in the player to a secure location before changing the firmware.
All contents in the player will be lost when you install a new firmware.
Close all active applications as well as all background applications, including all media players and anti-virus programs such Norton Anti-virus.
Disable the Detector application in Creative MediaSource.
To do so, start Creative MediaSource, click on Tools, Settings, and then Detector. Uncheck the box next to Enable Detector.
Close down MediaSource.
Ensure that the firmware download was saved into the hard drive of your PC, not the player itself. Otherwise, it will report an error message Unable to lock the drive.
