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.

My sansadisk clip works, but when I plug the USB cable into the computer it switches itself off. If I plug the USB cable into the sansa without attaching it to the computer its fine, its only when I plug...


I think your USB cable is faulty. Try to connect your player using another cable. If this can not solve the problem your device must have some hardware problem and to fix it you should carry it to service center.

After reaching the capacity of my 8gb Sansadisk, I purchased and installed a 16 gb micro sd card, but got no more memory, why not?


The Sansa Clip+ uses microSD cards. Your 16GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible. You need to use microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Sansadisk mtable file problem


Hello,

Switching to MSC mode and performing a content backup
When the player does not respond to the software for the media player
in MTP ( media transfer protocol ) mode you can switch the player to
MSC mode in the player as next:
1. From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB Mode.
2. Select Auto Detect, MTP or MSC.
When having no more screen view, have a hardware MSC selection:
Forcing Sansa Clip to MSC mode, enabling the USB connection mode for the computer seeing the device as a removable disk:
Sansa Clip
1. Turn device OFF.
2. Slide the Hold switch down to Lock (orange color showing).
3. Press and hold the center button while connecting the device to the PC.

Updating firmware
Next update the firmware of the player. This will clean all your files in the player ( have a backup first as told above ) and the software in the player will be updated.

How to update Sansa Clip's firmware, see:

Sansa Clip does not show up on computer


I had the same problem all you've got to do is first turn on the sansa clip.Then go to settings. After that scroll down to USB mode (second from bottom) then it woul probably say auto detect. Scroll down to MSC then hit enter. If that doesn't work try MTP mode.
