Question about SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Sansa e270 I tried to synch my player to Windows, and since then it's been completely screwy. I've reformatted several times and reloaded music/photos/etc but it will invariably copy the first song on the list up to 50 times and lable it "Unknown". I've gone through the list of Unknowns and it's always the first song copied. Help?

Corrupt DB.

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.

Probles with formatting and resync sansa e270


hi! you can try reformatting by activating the keylock and then press and hold the record key while turning the power on. it will go to the recovery mode.

plug the mp3 usb to your pc.

open a notepad apllication and create a new blank file.
save as sansa.fmt and change save as type, it should be All Files. it will create a file with 0 bytes.

you can now disconnect the usb and wait til the mp3 displays formatting.. it will reformat by itself.

Reformat the whole thing with Rockbox. That's the whole point with buying the Sansa, as far as I understand.

In regard to my answer


I'm not sure what the original problem was - you don't necessarily need the install CD if you are running Windows XP. If you have Windows Media Player 11, reformat the player inside Windows Media Player, and then restart your computer. Should be working again upon restart. Also, follow the recovery instructions on the Sansa website - I did something simple like pushing the volume + button, or the play button (can't remember which), and Windows recovered the player, and read it as a Sansa player again. Worked after a bit of trouble
