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.

Hi my sansa shaker wont play music


The Sansa Shaker ONLY plays MP3's, I downloaded a bunch of .wma files and kept getting the uh-oh so I put on an mp3 I had a voila! it played. Bummer though. Guess I gotta figure out how to convert my music files for my daughter, or pitch this thing and buy one that will play any media file.

Sylvania Video MP3 Player says it will hold 500 songs, however, my will only play 25, says it has only 25 songs, but when connected to my Windows media player, all the song(137) will play on the player?


I understand what you are feeling. It took me 4 hours to figure this one out. You have to make sure that the MP3 Player registers to your computer first and you can do this by connecting and disconnecting the system until it finds the new hardware. Then you open the drive with you voice file in it and then you have to drag your music and put it into the voice folder and then when you disconnect the divice from the computer, the music will be on your MP3 player. Then you can click on the music icon and then you will see voice and then you can see your music as well. And you should be ready to listen to your MP3 Player.

I charger my sansa shaker and it turns on and you can her the sound go off when you turn it on but when i go to shake it or change the song or just let it play the music doesn't come on. Not one song. So I charged it for a long time and put a brand new battery in it and its still not working. I know there is music on it because i had it work about 1 year ago and when i found my shaker i turned it on and nothing happened. How do I fix this problem?

Try playing that particular track on your PC. If the same happens, then it is a corrupt file.
