Reset the player

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 ipod mini just stopped working cos i didn't recharge it for a while and now i have connected to the computer with the to recharge but the light won't turn on nothing is happening.


Sometimes when the battery is very low, it takes some while charging before the ipod will have enough power to start up the screen etc. Be patient and see how it goes. If nothing still happens, it might have crashed, in which case press the center button and menu at the same time and hold them to reset.

1: Plug your iPod into your computer.

2: Hold the power button and the menu button (underneath screen) down simultaneously until the screen goes black, then shows the Apple logo again. Then release the buttons.

3: Wait for five to fifteen minutes until your computer plays a "chime" sound. The iPod should then show the "locked" screen with the battery logo, and you should be good to go. You will probably want to resync your media to your iPod at this point, and make sure it's charged.

If you are using the same charging cable, you might check the cable. Borrow a friends cable to see if you can charge and if you can charge with someone elses cable, buy a new one for yourself.
