My sansa says to put it on recovery mode? can you help me?


On your Sansa player, press and hold the Power/Menu button for 15 seconds to turn the device completely off.
Slide the Hold switch so the orange portion shows.
On your PC, double-click My Computer
On your Sansa player, press and hold the REC button while connecting it to the PC.
Release the REC button when a 16MB-FORMAT drive partition appears under My Computer.
What is recovery Mode?
Recovery mode is usually done as part of a troubleshooting step in updating the fimware on a Sansa player.

Turn on the mp3 and it said recovery needed


Download the Sansa Recovery Tool for your specific player
Then disconnect the Sansa from computer
Turn the Sansa player off
Hold in the REC button
Continue holding the REC button as you reconnect the Sansa to the computer
Continue holding the REC button
After 5-15 seconds, Recovery Mode should take hold.

Getting to recovery mode


You have to Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from Sandisk's website first. Then, disconnect the Sansa from the computer, press and hold in the REC button, and then reconnect the Sansa while holding the REC button.

My sansa e250 gets frozen


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 + (REC button for Sansa e200 series) button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + (REC button for Sansa e200 series) button in. Keep holding the volume + (REC button for Sansa e200 series) 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.

Frozen


Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from Sandisk's website (make sure the Sansa is not plugged into the computer yet). Once the Recovery Tool is downloaded, connect the Sansa to the computer while holding in the REC button and continue to hold it even after th player is plugged in. It should go into Recovery Mode in 10-15 seconds or so.

My Sansa 4.0 GB mp3 player keeps saying 'Not enough space for music DM. Please delete 6MB.' It won't detect any music and I have over 2GB still open, so why!?


hi you might need to run a recovery programme or update the firmware to do this then goto the sandisk website and down load the firmware onto your computer or download recovery programme ok
Once you have done this follow these instructions

1 turn mp3 off
2 slide hold/lock to on position
3 press and hold down rec button on left hand side keep held down
4 switch on whilst still holding down rec button on left hand side
5 it should now say recovery mode
once it says this then open the firmware file on your computer and follow instructions also do this if your using the recovery tool from the site.

If you have any problems then let me know ok
