Switch from msc or mtp mode to auto, and see if the files show up again.

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 can I fix format error?


Connect your Eclipse player to a computer and try to format it as a Removable disk. If can't, try low level format using HDD LLF Low Level Format Tool

If still can'tt format it, probablt your Eclopse is unrecoverable. Actually, it's the WORST mp3 player I ever had!.

What video file format does my Eclipse 180g2 4gb mp3 music/vid player read?


Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine the type of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI and WMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is an incompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to a format that your MP3 player uses. After video conversion then copy the video files to your MP3 player using the USB cable from your computer.

I have nothing on my polaroid pmp280c-4 and once i try to put music on it, it says i have no room then i formated it and it said i only had 3.53 gb and it is a 4gb please help me i just bought


3.53 is about right for 4gb. The marketing folks give the total memory count when they say 4gb, but when a computer counts it, it counts 1024 bytes as a kilobyte. So, a gb is not 1,000,000,000 bytes to the computer, it's 1,024,000,000. Multiply that out, and there's your missing bytes. Plus, the device uses a little bit of the space for its own housekeeping. Don't panic. You got what you paid for.

My sansa fuse 4GB seems to have lost most of its internal memory.Although I've deleted everything from the unit , I'm left with only 35 MB free of 3.65 GB.How can I retrieve all the internal memory?


You should format the memory of your player but if you have important files on the device make back up of them before. You have two possibilities to do the formatting:
1. On the player use the device Format command under Settings and Format option.
2. Using your computer, and windows explorer select the drive of sansa and right click on and choose format. Type of it should be FAT.
Then you already should find all the internal memory in the device.

Good luck!
