How do I undisable my ipod


You need to put the phone into recovery mode, that is a way to disable/enable.

Placing your device into recovery mode Follow these steps to place your iOS device into recovery mode. If your iOS device is already in recovery mode, you can proceed immediately to step 6.
  1. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
  2. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.
  3. If you cannot turn off the device using the slider, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the device turns off, release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons.
  4. While pressing and holding the Home button, reconnect the USB cable to the device. The device should turn on.
    Note: If you see the screen pictured below, let the device charge for at least ten minutes to ensure that the battery has some charge, and then start with step 2 again.

My ipod touch is disabled and it has 21543900minutes before it's enabled, is there a more efficient way of enabling it? Celene


Hm.. looks like someone might have been trying to get into it and failed the password too many times.
Try this.. hopefully you have a backup of the ipod on your pc.
Hold the sleep key and then tell it to turn off. Press the sleep key again and hold the Home key (bottom key) while it loads up. this should put it in to recovery mode.
Then when it shows the plug and the itunes disc on the screen plug it into you pc. It will tell you that it is in recovery mode and from there you should be able to do a restore. (click the ipod on the left column and it should show a button in the main window)
Recover and you should be good to go.

My recovery mode says "enter USB2.0 MSD mode" what do i do


Hi there.

I can understand your issue. When you say "enter USB2.0 MSD mode"getting into recovery mode. Then i'd say firmware needs to be updated..

Please follow the steps..

There are files in the player that might be corrupted causing the device to freeze and stop responding.

SOLUTION 1 - Reset the device.

1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button.
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.

NOTE: Resetting will turn the player off while it is frozen.

SOLUTION 2 - Force MSC or Recovery mode then update to the latest firmware.

STEP 1 - Force MSC or go to Recovery mode
For e200v1/e200R (Recovery mode only): Connecting in Recovery mode

1. On your Sansa player, press and hold the Power/Menu button for 15 seconds to turn the device completely off.
2. Slide the Hold switch so the orange portion shows.
3. On your PC, double-click My Computer
4. On your Sansa player, press and hold the REC button while connecting it to the PC.
5. Release the REC button when a 16MB-FORMAT drive partition appears under My Computer.

For e200v2 (Force MSC mode only): Enabling MSC mode

1. Turn device OFF.
2. Slide the hold switch to the direction of the headphone jack so an orange color would show putting the device on Hold.
3. Press and hold the ( |<< ) button while connecting the device to the PC.

STEP 2 - Update to the latest firmware manually, as it is described in Method 2 http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/306/kw/e200/r_id/101834.

In case you have any further inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us!

E250 How do i downGrade


Recovery mode:
first, Create a blank file with filename "sansa.fmt", put the player to recovery mode this way = you have to enable the hold key then plug it to your computer while holding the record button. you may release it after you see 'welcome the recovery mode'.

Then drag-drop this file, the file will tell the device to format itself after you unplug it

Hope this help, if so please leave rating

to run recovery mode is done by 1. Enabling the Hold Switch on the device when it is showing red 2. Press the record button then press the Menu/Power Button then it will show welcome to recovery mode on the screen of the player. I want to ask are you receiving Load Main Image Failed Switch to Recovery mode? If so reloading the correct firmware for your device will resolve this issue. Take note that there are 3 models of the sansa E200 , the first one it the Version 1 while the second one is the Rhapsody Model the one that has a rhapsody channel on it and the latest one which is the Version 2 that supports audible and SDHC cards.
