Here's my problem:
I put all my songs on, but every time I plug it in to the computer it erases a few more songs. I tried putting them back on with Windows Media Player but somehow EVERYTHING got erased: all my songs, photos and videos. It's plugged into the computer now, but what it does is it stays connected for about 5 seconds, then says it's writing, then the screen goes fuzzy and it restarts itself. It keeps doing this over and over again and it won't ler me sync it. What to I do???

Re: wont load any songs
Are you unplugging it everytime you put a song in it? if you are then the harddrive in the player will stop working until the whole song is in the player. also it maybe the player has a backup flow that if you keep adding it erases one song at a time. some players do that. dont let the battery run dead either keep it at half way all batteries in players like that dont last long when the batteries is used all the way i hope i helped you out good luck on the player.

well it seems you deleted your songs but not the titles. weird huh but that happened to me too. so hook it up to your computer, go to " my computer", and then right the icon that is your device, and then click format and that should take care of that.
Yes, formatting your MP3 Player will erase everything on it other then the required system files.
If the MP3 Player is USB Compatible, plug the USB into the MP3 Player usb port, then plug the other end of the USB into your computer (provided your computer has a usb port). Depending on if the MP3 player needs software to put music on it, it should be easy. Allow the MP3 Player 1 minute to fully load onto your computer.
1) My Computer 2) Find your MP3 Player, should be something like F: Drive or MP3 Player (depends on the kind). 3) Double click on the icon of your mp3 player. 4) If there is music or anything in there, create a folder on your desktop or where ever you wish to move the music. 5) Highlight every song or anything, and right click drag it into the folder you have just made. 6) Make sure no songs are on the mp3 player. 7) Unplug it, check for songs, and if successful, you should have all your songs off your MP3 player and onto your computer! Double check, then you can format it or do what ever you wish!
I would wait for the writing message to go away before disconnecting the player - this is the standard message it will give you when you are transferring songs to the player. If it still says writing after 5 minutes (this is assuming you are not trying to load more than 20 songs at once), then you might have a real problem.
Make sure the files you are trying to load do not have DRM encryption on them, and also make sure they are in mp3 or wma format.
If you have Windows Media Player 11:
Quick Method 1 - 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.
Quick Method 2 - 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/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
Do a fromat,
The below was copyed from an earlier post of mine.
Over a period of time your info can get corrupt from transering music back and forth.
To format plug it in to usb.
Go to my computer
It shows up as a removably disc, usually drive f:
Right click on drive f: (or the approriate drive) and click format.
Let me know what happens, you will have reload the player, also try bypassing the software you are using to tranfer, by opening up drive f: and clicking and dragging your music into it , or you can copy and paste it into drive f:
