I'm not sure that I completely understand the issue. Is it not loading songs anymore? The functions of the mp3 player - playing music, etc. only work once the mp3 player is disconnected from the pc.

Try reading this to see if you see anything relevant:
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.

How can I remove SlotRadio advertisement from my Sandisk Sansa Clip + 8Gb. I can't find any SlotRadio files in both UMS and MTP modes.


You will need to manually reinstall the firmware from the Sansa Website


Current version is 01.02.15 (at this date 1/30/11)

On your clip the version number may be followed with an "a"


Your clip should be at least 50% charged or greater before following these steps


DO NOT use the Sansa Updater


1. Download the current firmware for your Clip+ from the Sansa Website

2. Save the zipped firmware (clipplus01.02.15.zip) to a folder you can easily locate (Downloads)


3. Create a new folder naming it what you wish.. (Sansa Firmware)


4. Open the downloaded zipped file(clipplus01.02.15.zip) using something like Winrar

5. Delete the file clpp_data.dat (This is the slot radio ad)

6. Extract/unzip the remaining file clppa.bin to the new folder (Sansa Firmware)


7. Plug in your Sansa Clip


8. Drag and drop (copy) the clppa.bin file into the internal memory or root of the clip


9. Unplug the clip from the USB port on your PC


10. The firmware will update and the media will refresh.. and you will no longer have the Slot radio Ad on your clip


Good luck


I have three clips.. 2 of the 2 gb.. 1 of the 4 gb and now a plus 8 gb.. and yes..I too found the banner ad annoying as all get out.

You have 2 ways to transfer your songs from your computer to your sansa clip:
1. Plug sansa clip to computer, double click on "Sansa Clip ...GB", double click on "Internal Memory", you will see the file "Music", copy your songs and paste them into Music file of the device.
2. Using Windows Media Player: open windows media player, plug sansa clip into computer, click on Sync tab, select songs that you want to sync, drag and drop song selected into "Sync list" on the right side of the windows media player (you should update wmp11), then click on button Start Sync.

Good luck

How to unlock sansa 1 gb mp


Sansa Connect No-Wifi Recovery Tool
Make sure your Sansa Connect player is charged and the HOLD switch is in the unlocked position. Press and hold the power button for 20 seconds, then release it. This will force the Sansa connect player to reset and restart.

If your player still will not start after trying the reset, you may need to run the Sansa Connect Recovery application.

With a copy of the Sansa Connect Recovery application installed on a PC, you can connect your to the device via the USB cable to the PC, and restore the device software to an uncorrupted state.

However, all of your subscription settings and content will be removed from the device.

STEP 1 - Download and install the recovery tool.

STEP 2 - Put your Sansa Connect player in Recovery Mode
1. Press and hold the Power button for approximately 8 seconds to turn off the player.
2. While holding down the Right button, and Volume Up Button,
press-and-release the Power button. Keep holding the Right and Volume Up button. After a few seconds, the player will start and a Recovery Needed message will on the player's screen.
3. Connect the player to a PC.
4. A SanDisk Device Recovery dialog box will appear on your PC. Choose Recover Sansa Device and click OK.
5. Follow the steps in the SanDisk Device Recovery application.
Hope this will help you.

There is one option, not really a fix, just a workaround. Try the player on a different computer computer and see if it is recognnised there. If it is, then use something like a pen drive to transfer music from the PC that doesnt recognise the device to another that does. Now you can transfer music using the WMPlayer sync service.

If your device is not being recognised on many computers, it looks like it is time to chuck it away. You can also try this first though..
1. Remove the player from the PC and switch it off.
2. Restart the computer.
3. Hold the +Volume button and connect to computer.
4. Keep the button pressed for at least 60 secs, and you should see the "Found New Hardware" balloon pop up, indicating that the device has been detected.

If even that fails, then I'm afraid your Sansa player has run its course, and you may need to purchase a new player...:(
