if you still have the warranty with your mp3 player, then you go to the store you bought it from and get a new one and it comes with a disc you MUST download to get music

These re the songs that came with the player even if it is brand new, and plus since these artists don't want these to be copied they use a special method to hide them form any OS, hope i helped....

Try a "hard reset". Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds to shut off. With the device off, press and hold the vol + and the center select button. Power it back on, see if that works. You can add to the question if you have more questions. Best of Luck.

If you are trying to format the device thru Windows Media Player, try just thru My Computer. My Computer>Device Name, right click and select format. Otherwise you may need to change the mode on the device. Settings>Mode or USB. Please add to the question, if you need more help. Best of Luck.

Try copying new MP3 files to it. If you cannot do that, try downloading Sansa's Firmware Updater and following the video example on Sansa's website to update your firmware. If that doesn't work, try to get it replaced if it is under warranty. Otherwise, please dispose of properly.

SanDisk Sansa... | Answered on Nov 06, 2008

Dear paige1340, I was surfing the web looking for help with my sandisk c140 and I came across this page. I just had a similar experience with my sandisk c140. Im sorry that this isnt a helpful email, but I was wondering if you figured out how to fix that problem. Then only difference between yours and mine is that mine are gone even when I check with it connected to my computer. I tried to format it but it did not change anything. If you have any suggestion that would be great. My email is below. Brice [email protected]

I have a quick and painless solution for you.

First open your mp3 player and go to settings. Under the USB menu change it to MSC. Then plug in the mp3 player to the computer. Open the My Computer on your desktop, right click on the Sansa mp3 player and click Format. Make sure Fat32 is checked and Quick format is UNchecked. Then format the mp3 player. After that it should be clean and work just like a USB drive.

Hope this helps!

Also my sceen doesn't work. I when it come on it cut right back off. I never drop it or anything.

We need your model number to be of most assistance, but if the recovery mode failed to wipe everything off, then go intoi Windows Media Player and delete them manually by left clicking on the song title (make sure you delete them from the Songs folder underneath your mp3 player name - not the Songs folder directly underneath "Library") and presssing delete on your keyboard. Once you test on a few individual songs, then you can click several songs, or even "Select All" and delete them in bulk.

Your MP3 file might not have any content on the right channel. Try another Mp3 file. If the problem occurs on another file check the hardware:
Unplug the headphones from the mp3 player. Try another set of headphones. If the problem occurs with another set of headphones, it is a broken player. If using another set of headphones cures the problem, try your original headphones again. Plug your original headphones back in. If the problem comes back, buy a new set of headphones.

Try formatting the drive. Plug it in. Open Windows Explorer. Right click on the drive and select format. This will delete all content off the player.

Download this file:

This is the firmware update utility for Sanca c140 (c100 series) devices.

There is a howto.txt file included, follow the instructions.I am posting the instructions here for convenience.

1. Download the attached file and save it on the desktop.
(the player should not be attached to the computer at this point)
2. Double click the file to run it.
3. Accept the license agreement.
4. Remove the battery from the mp3 player.
5. Press and hold the center (select) button and connect it to the computer (keep holding the button, this is the firmware update mode).
6. If the New Hardware Wizard appears (now you can let go of the select button), do the following: (if asked, choose not to connect to the internet for updates), then choose to install the device automatically, then follow the prompts to finish the installation.
7. When the wizard comes up, or when the Update button becomes active (whichever happens first), you may release the select button.
8. Click the Update button, and then click OK to the message that comes up.
9. Wait until the upgrade finishes, then unplug the device.
10. Put the battery back in, and turn on the player.
11. Hopefully the update will be performed, then choose English for the language when prompted.
12. Check if the issue is resolved.
