Try to re-install the firmware.  Download and double-click.

This might solve your problem.  Also if that doesn't help, try downloading the newest version of Windows Media Player.  
It can be found on the microsoft website or just google it and you will find many download sites.  Hope this solves your problem!!!

Hello J.kam
Use disk management to format it.
At times we use other format like fat or fat32.
Try this.

When I try to sync my Sansa e260, only a few of the songs actually get transferred to the Sansa from my computer. I've tried several times, and what is on the Sansa does not agree with what I have/had in...


Did you check the format supported by Sansa Player. If the format of your songs are not supporting by Sansa, try to convert those to compatible format and then sync .

Please let me know the result.

Thanks

I have the Sansa Clip MP3 2gb.....I have downloaded about 50 songs with no problems, but now everytime I try to download, it shows a red circle with the slash across it and it will not download. I have...


Sounds like the files you tried to download are in the wrong format.

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.

Hey, sansa problem with media player 10


Try formatting the player again.
When you open windows media player it is probably showing the songs that you have on your computer not the songs currently on your sansa.

Blank Screen After Database tries to refresh


If you tried everything you could then Format the player. It will erase everything and will Very much fix anything wrong with the player. To do That go to start>my computer>Mp3's Drive. Probably a Letter like (F:) or (G:) which ever the mp3's drive is. Then Right Click on the Drive and Click Format. it will ask if you want to format, as it will erase everything. Click yes and perform a "quick format" when done. safely disconnect from the computer and restart. then load the songs. It should work then. Hoppe this worlks. :]

My sansa e260 stopped working after unsuccessful formatting


I have guys, I just spoke with the Sansa representative. Even if you have Windows Vista, you do not need a drive for e260 given that Vista carries that drivers for it. If you have tried the steps above, but you Sansa still did not format successfully after using the recoverty tool. This is what you do:

Set you Sansa e260 in recovery mode

- set it to hold
- hold rec
- connect to computer while you are holding rec
- device should be now in recovrey mode
- go to my computer
- go to the folder 16B format
- you will see a text file
- don't worry about
- add a new folder and name Sansa.fmt
- wait up to 2 minutes
- message on your device should say formatting
- wait a few minutes for formatting to take place
- stop the device by removing it safely using windows Safely device removal tool on bottom right corner of your screen
- disconneting your Sansa and you should see a message upgrade finished, Sansa has been restored or something like that
- Power your Sansa on, and Bwala!!! your Sansa is back to normal.

Good luck

It is very dangerous in formatting the 16MB format of the device. After learning it a hard way, i also learned the the 16MB format is a second partition of your player where is installs the firmware of the device. Formatting it will ruin your player and it will never function again the way you want it to work.
