    Did the player ever play when connected to the AUX? Also, after the product name was displayed, was there nothing shown on the screen at all?

Did you connect it to an AUX in? An AUX Out could easily ruin the player's hardware.

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.

Connect a audio from the headphone socket on the player and plug it into the AUX input on the stereo system. Set the stereo to AUX, turn on the player and adjust the volume level on the stereo.

Sansa c250 will not show music on memory card


First, make sure it's a microSD card and not a microSDHC card. If your card is larger than 2GB then it won't work in the c250.
Second, make sure all your music in a folder named "MUSIC" at the root of your card. You can have subfolders in that folder, but the top folder must have that name.

Does not recognize the micro sd card


First, make sure it's a microSD card and not a microSDHC card. If it's larger than 2GB then it's a microSDHC card and won't work. Second, make sure all your music is in a folder named "MUSIC".

Added 2gb micro card


The player can read the card, but it is not going to add more memory space to the player. The function of the card reader is to enable your player to play songs that you otherwise couldn't play because the hard drive is full.

Home stereo hookup


Make sure that you are using a headphone to A/V (red and white RCA) (1-to-2) adapter. Then select source on your home theater until it says AUX or wherever you have the A/V (red and white RCA) cable plugged into. If you give me themanufacturer and model number of your home theater system, I can tell you EXACTLY what to do.

Some HTS's come with docking stations - they are probably not designed for Sansa players.
