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.

E250


SETTING USB MODE
1. Select Settings menu in Main Menu.
2. Select USB
3. You can select AutoDetect or MSC mode.
Note: AutoDetect will default to MTP mode. The MTP mode supports Windows Media Player 10 only.
You must use the MTP mode to synchronize music files using Windows Media Player 10 for the optimal
system performance.

Sansa mp3 player


If the player is in MTP/Autodetect you can just unplug the player from the computer. You can check this by going to the My Computer window and see if the player is listed and if it has a drive letter before it, if it dont have a drive letter then it means the player is in MTP/Autodetect you can just unplug the player from the computer.

Computer won't read mp3 player


Try checking for the mode the player is in, SETTINGS>USB MODE> choose MTP/AUTODETECT. It may be that the setting is in MSC that is why it is not being detected by your computer. If all else fails try updating your windows media player software.
