How to fix a sandisk fat is corrupted please recover fat


You could try the following:

Start with the Clip turned OFF. Slide the power switch down to the HOLD position. Press and HOLD the center button depressed until it is recognized by the PC- give it a few seconds.

The Clip's display will state "connected" with the device now in MSC mode.

You can now repair the File Allocation Table (FAT) using Windows' chkdsk utility.

Open My Computer and find the Clip a listed under "devices with removable storage" as a flash drive. Let's say it displays as E: SANSA CLIP for example. Our assigned drive letter is E:

From the Run box under Start, enter cmd and press Enter. You will get a DOS window.

Enter chkdsk E: /f and press Enter. The /f toggle tells the utility to fix the errors.

After clicking on the Safely Remove icon in the taskbar, or right clicking on the Clip and selecting Eject, unplug the Clip.

Try powering it up again, and see if all is well.

Sansa fuze FAT error


Plug your Fuze into your computer. Open "My Computer," right click your Fuze and click "Format," a window will pop up with settings on how you want to format it, make sure it's set to FAT, then click "Format."

My sansa fuze is not working


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me;.

Offhand, the message indicates that the Sansa is requesting that the internal storage be reformatted using the PC. This would require that the Fuze be connected to the PC through USB. Thereafter, the computer would recognize it as an external storage device. Steps required to format:
  • connect Sansa Fuse to USB of PC;
  • double click on "My Computer";
  • it would show probable as an "E";
  • right click on the "E" and click on "Format...";
  • a new window will pop up;
  • under the "File system" pls select FAT or FAT 32;
  • verify that "Quick Format" is un-checked;
  • click on Start button.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Sansa stuck on finalizing update


Remove the battery for at least 3 minutes and then put it back in.. be sure it''s fresh and fully charged

2. VERY IMPORTANT...Turn the "Hold button" ON.. (slide it to the right)

3. Now, plug it into the computer, it would be better if you used a USB 2 port that is located on the back of the computer (it''s on the motherboard)
4. Go to "MY Computer" and see if it shows up as a "Removable disk"
5. If it''s there, then reformat it to ...FAT32...not FAT.if you need help with reformatting let me know.
EDIT* When I called Sandisk on 1-3-07, the tech I spoke with instructed me to reformat to FAT32. Now (2-14-07) I get this from them..."(select "FAT" if the capacity of your Sansa is less than 2GB. For larger players, select "FAT32"). I found I lost a few megs when I formated to FAT32 on my m240, but didn't notice any other difference.

6 Unplug it and let it finalize. Give it lots of time.
7. Return the "Hold button" to off.
I hope that help
Please rate accordingly
Thank you

Wont let me transfer osngs


2 possibilities. Most likey you need to upgrade the firmware for your device so that it is compatible with WMP. Go to the sandisk website. find product support and download the latest fimware. install it on your player. then try using wmp again. if that doesn't work you may need to reformat the device. open your 'my computer folder' with the device connected. right click on the device icon. click format. set to FAT format if allowed. click quick format. unplug device and then power it back on. it should reboot itself.
