Hardware issue then - this player must be replaced. Make sure you have tried all of these methods first:
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.

I WANT TO REBOOT MY NETBOOK


Reboot the computer and as soon as it turns on start tapping F9 repeatedly. Do this immediatly after hitting the power button. If Windows Starts to load - you will need to reboot and retry.

Hitting F9 should take you to the recovery partition option. If you select to run it - it will erase everything on your laptop and set it back to factory defaults.

If you have more questions, consult the manual that you can download here: http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=20&s=1&m=Eee%20PC%20R101&os=17&hashedid=GhBUCjHj4BRr7ndV

Hope that helps!

I just fixed it. Uninstall the application by choosing applications and finding scansnap. Drag the folder to the trash. power down your scanner and unplug the USB. Go to the Fujitsu website and download the software again and reinstall it. Plug in the power and USB into your scanner and everything should work fine.
