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.

Error code c1144


I have 5 biz hub 654s. There is no "utility" hardware button. Instead, open the front cover (marked "biz hub 654") - switch off the main power - white switch in an orange rectangle. Wait 30 secs. Flip back on- then QUICKLY close the door while holding down the yellow RESET button. "Trouble reset" appears - tap it - OK appears below it. Use main power to power down. Wait 30 seconds. Power back up. Works every time.

DVD will not eject on my toshiba laptop



Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer

if there is a small hole on the panel of your dvd drive push a staightened paper clip inside until you feel it press down this will open up the drive

hope this helps

Trying to hook up internet


Hello

Please check whether the Wireles s button is on and there are any yellow marks in the device manager.

Click start and select Run. In the Run box type devgmgmt.msc and press enter. This will open device manager. Then click on + sign next to network adapters and check whether the wireless adapter listed and any yellow marks beside it.

If there is no yellow marks beside the wireless adapter and it is listed in the device manager. Then try to install Wireless drivers and reconfigure wireless network.



Thanks
Regards.

Windows xp will not detect creative zen vision w


There are many possible reasons:
1) USB port is not 2.0 - previous usb ports are too weak for anything but charging - go into hardware device manager and see if their is a yellow exclamation by the USB port
2) You have not downloaded the installation CD with key drivers - download the cd
3) windows is missing drivers - -go into the hardware device manager and see if there is a yellow exclamation mark by the mp3 player icon

Creative's website has an FAQ addressing the exact question you have asked

If all else fails,

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.

Sansa clip mp3 player


To help you with that, I need to know what operating system your using (XP, Vista, ect...) and what other devices you have plugged into the computer. There are a few things you can try. When you plug it in, does it say it's connected? Does the "Found new hardware" wizard come up? Let me know, I'll see what I can do to help

Hi, Confirm that there is an audio device installed in your PC > right click on My Computer, Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager button, expand Sound, video and game controllers, It's got to be there, with no yellow or red marks. Also in Start, Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices, Audio tab, you should have something in Default device. If none likewise in Device Manager or a yellow or red mark, you have to re-install your drivers by right clicking on the mark and click Update drivers. If they're there with no marks, ensure that they are enabled. Perhaps further assistance maybe made available if you can post brand/model of your PC and/or motherboard. Good luck and kind regards.
