PLEASE NOTE: Re-formatting the MP3 Player will result in a loss of all original files!

I can personally say that the comment posted by 'babayigit-em' works perfectly. The procedure I followed was:

1) START > Run > (In this section enter the command: CMD)
2) In this black MS-DOS box enter the following command: FORMAT F: then press ENTER (Note:' F:' was the name of the drive my MP3 took, this will be different for many people so enter the one in 'My Computer' which your 'removable disc' MP3 takes up)
3) The command will produce a set of information i.e. your MP3 has so many bites and free bites etc., it may ask you to press ENTER again at a later stage it did for me click ENTER where it says and the message 'Format completed' should appear on the screen
4) Remove the MP3 drive from the PC, switch it on (It will say NO MP3 FILE) then re-insert it and hey presto it should work normally again but unfortunately the original files will have been lost.

When i conect it on the pc its appears only transfer mode it shows also the batery is empty and usb conected ready it doesnt turn on

Try a new USB cord and make sure your driver is updated. Try a different USB port on your PC as well. They can go bad. You may try to remove the battery for a minute and then reinstall the battery and see if that resets it and has any effect.

Alba 1GB MP3 Player

Format the drive. Go to "My Computer" then right click on the drive letter of the Alba Mp3 player and choose format, click start. This will delete ALL files on the player, but you should be able to read/write to the drive after that.

Error 000099

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:
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.

Unableto connect to PC

You have to have Windows Media Player version 10 or higher, if you do not then the device will not install correctly.

If this does not apply, then check the Device Manager for errors while the device is connected. If you see any RED or YELLOW errors listed, right click on them and select un-install.

Disconnect the device and re-connect it to install the drivers.

If that doesnt work, add to the message and we can go from there.

Best of Luck.
