LOL. We do give free advice - if Pyro's Tips & Tricks don't help, check out my Tips and Tricks also - linked to my profile. Or just call Sansa and see if they can help.

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.

Oh my God this is my song. I've been listening to the radio all day long.....


Wait for the man to call
I need it fast as I can
I've been shaking all over
It's got me drumming me hands
I've been thinking 'bout the thought on my brain
About to drive me insane
There ain't no safety, you feel that thing
I press the buttons again
You reckon you've got everything to die for
Decaf is here again
It's what I live and breathe and lie for

Katy perry roar lyrics


"Roar"



I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath

Scared to rock the boat and make a mess

So I sat quietly, agreed politely

I guess that I forgot I had a choice

I let you push me past the breaking point

I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything



You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Already brushing off the dust

You hear my voice, you hear that sound

Like thunder gonna shake the ground

You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Get ready \'cause I\'ve had enough

I see it all, I see it now



[Chorus]

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire

\'Cause I am a champion and you\'re gonna hear me roar

Louder, louder than a lion

\'Cause I am a champion and you\'re gonna hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You\'re gonna hear me roar



Now I\'m floating like a butterfly

Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes

I went from zero, to my own hero



You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Already brushing off the dust

You hear my voice, you hear that sound

Like thunder gonna shake the ground

You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Get ready \'cause I\'ve had enough

I see it all, I see it now



[Chorus]

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire

\'Cause I am a champion and you\'re gonna hear me roar

Louder, louder than a lion

\'Cause I am a champion and you\'re gonna hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You\'re gonna hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You\'ll hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You\'re gonna hear me roar...



Ro-oar, ro-oar, ro-oar, ro-oar, ro-oar



I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire

\'Cause I am a champion and you\'re gonna hear me roar

Louder, louder than a lion

\'Cause I am a champion and you\'re gonna hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You\'re gonna hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You\'ll hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You\'re gonna hear me roar...
