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.

Ipod crashed, sad ipod face, do i have to get a new ipod? i already went to apple support. doesn't work. ??


There are a few last things you can do. Try entering diagnostic mode by holding the center and left buttons together on bootup. You can also try to see if itunes will recognize it when connected. If so, try to do a restore.

Turned black


I had the same problem.  I went to the Apple.com site and went to the trouble-shooting section.  They said I needed to "reset" it.  This is done by holding in both the turn on button on the face and the turn off button at the top.  Hold in both at the same time for 10 seconds are more.  That worked for me.  
If that doesn't work, they also had something which required hooking it up to your computer, but that "fix" erases everything you have added to it.  It's just like starting over.  
Hope the first method works for you.

Reset and register ipod


You most likely have to restore your ipod to it's original settings by clicking on the restore button on the main ipod screen under itunes, and after it is restored, it should work normally.

8 GB Ipod Nano went dead and now won't charge


does it work on the charger? if not, then contact apple or your dealer for more assistance or repairs.

If it works on the charger, plays music and so on, your battery is probably dead and you need a new one.

You need to RMA (return to manufacturer) that ASAP.

The warranty is very short and you should still be under the warranty period. goto www.creative.com/support and request that RMA as soon as possible.

I had to do that with one of my other creative players. They will give you the shipping info and you ship it to them with original recipt and they will fix it for free (if it is under warranty)
