You probably synced songs that were in the wrong format - see my 2-part article under my profile on song formats for a more details explanation. Short answer: convert all osngs to mp3 format


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 do not utilize yahoo on my internet explorer at all. Yet this morning I was unable to access the internet. The reason read as follows: internet explorer has encountered a problem with an add on and...


The easiest way to fix this problem is to uninstall the Yahoo Toolbar using add/remove programs. Once that is done, your internet should be working again. If you want the yahoo toolbar, you can go back to yahoo.com and download/install it again, and it should work fine.
Today, 12/15/10, I have had to do this on 5 different computers, so my guess is something in the toolbar was updated, and is causing the problems. Reinstalling the toolbar after removing it did not cause further issues.

I suppose you should reset the keyboard and mouse and maybe the access point itself. Try find small buttons on each devise and press them AT THE TIME. You may need somebody's help. Those buttos can by hidden under mouse and keyboard and should be on the top of the access point. This depend on the model, so please reffer to a manual.

ITS FROZEN


My first idea was that the software in the MP3 player caused it to hang. Although I have no experience with this player in particular, try the following: - Open the lid on the back side and take out the battery - Wait a minute or two - Turn it on - Try if it works now
