Beware the following steps will completely reset your device to factory default and will delete any files you have placed on the device!
Be sure the device is OFF.
Slide the Hold switch atop the device to the right (orange showing).
Press and hold the REC button down while connecting to the PC. Keep the button held down until it pops up in the Windows Explorer( My computer) window, and the device says "welcome to Recovery Mode" on its screen.
A new icon will appear (in "my computer), labeled 16MB FORMAT.
Under NO circumstance, even if your PC "wants" you to, format this partition!! It will erase the firmware and bootloader of the device!
What we want to do is double-click the new icon labeled 16MB Format with your mouse to open its window, on a blank part of this new window right click and select New > Folder. Rename this new folder sansa.fmt and drop it into this 16MB partition.
The presence of a folder in there instructs the Sansa to perform a formatting operation.
Right click on the 16MB FORMAT partition logo, and select Eject. Then unplug. Your Sansa will format itself automatically.
Do not press any buttons on the device until formating is complete.
After formatting, then plug in again! Remember to flip the Hold switch back to OFF or you will get a key lock message, and the Sansa will shut down.
The Sansa should show up in the window.
This should restore normal USB communication. Then, you can establish an MTP connection.
