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.

How to download songs to an mp3 player from itunes


MP3 players cant be used with itunes, Itunes is only for Ipods and such.
Just see where you download the actual songs. and put them in a folder and copy the songs into your MP3 player.

Or you can also try right clicking on the song in itunes and then copying and pasting it in the MP3 player

There are no instructions in the instruction manual as to how I transfer songs to the MP3 player. Sorry, but I need MP3's' for Dummies. It's the JX-MP102. PLEASE HELP!


Just bought the JX-MP102 find it difficult to use but was able to download songs from a windows xp laptop - plug the mp3 player into the usb port and turn on just as you would for playing music its screen should light up and the computer will pop up a screen with several options click to start windows explorer and from there you can got to place holding music files and copy them the disk letter which represents  the MP3 player. On my machine my main files are on the C disk and a new D disk pops up for MP3 player. I also have a windows vista machine and it also recognizes the player as a new disk drive just like a flash drive.  Unfortunately I can the player to work for a few minutes at best right now even with the music files successfully loaded and playing so I may return it tomorrow. Hope you have better luck.

Copying a cd to the ipod


The songs from CD may be in .CDA format, which the IPod doesn't recognize. Use Windows Media Player to Rip the tracks/convert to WMA or Mp3 format, and then transfer them to the iPod. you can also use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs after you're done ripping them.

Help with copying music to my mp3


I have the same player. Are you just dragging and dropping songs on to the player? I use Windows Media Player 10 to put music on the player. It has a function called SYNC. What that does is take your music from WMA 10 (WMA, MP3 files, etc...) and transfers them to your mp3 player. You might give that a shot. Also, WMA 10 should recognize your player and let you connect with it.
