Question about SanDisk Sansa e130 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Internal Searching for music

When I turn on my SanDisk Sansa e130, the blue light comes on and then it gives me a screen saying "Internal, Searching for new music." Then it stays there. It won't turn off untill the battery goes dead. The computer says that all the songs are there and (to my knowlege) everything is right. However, I still can't get past that screen. I've tried taking off all the songs I recently put on and I've tried taking everything off except for one song(in the hopes that I was just overwhelming the mp3 player with too much information...don't ask). Anyway, I can't get anywhere so if you can help out I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks a lot!!!

I had this same problem. I moved all the files off the device. Went into Windows explorer. Right clicked on the Sansa device (the internal memory, not the expansion card memory. Clicked on format and on the screen that came up I picked "Quick Format." I have just now moved all the music (but not the system files) back onto the player. Turned it on and it is now working. Hope this helps

Trouble using an SD Card

If Sansa e130 or 140 is version 1.x.x.10, SD card MUST be formatted as FAT (FAT16). Music files need to be on the root directory for better performance. I have a SD card (2 gig) formatted as FAT16 and the music plays good.

I was not able to upgrade my e130 to Version 2.0.0.1 Firmware.
Hope this helps

Searching for new music

Take the memory card out, clean the contacts and if you have an air duster clean the socket, reset the device by doing the following; take the battery out, hold the power-on button for 30 seconds (time it as it will seem to take forever). Put a new battery in and try it again. If this is no help then it would seem that either the memory card's file system or the internal memory's file system so plug the device in over USB and backup any data your PC can find. with anything that can be rescued, rescued format the memory using FAT32, do not use quick format. Alternatively you can buy rescue software from SanDisk www.lc-tech.com/software/rescueprodetail.html but it's not guaranteed to help.

Just a blue screen.

if the player will still play music but nothing shows on the screen, then the display is shot. The screen is not replaceable on these players. sorry, but it's most likely junk now. You could use it as a data storage device still. Best bet is to buy a used player off ebay or amazon.

I hate blue

goes off because the backlight is on a timer. after 20 seconds or so it turns off if no buttons are pushed. if the player will still play music but nothing shows on the screen, then the display is shot. The screen is not replaceable on these players. sorry, but it's most likely junk now. You could use it as a data storage device still. Best bet is to buy a used player off ebay or amazon.

Sync to player and memory card without duplicates

I got this from:http://www.livedigitally.com/2005/06/27/sandisk-sansa-e130-the-micro-version-of-the-ipod-mini/ Create two playlists with names such as 1. SANSA Internal and 2. SANSA 2GB (assuming your SD card is 2gb). Load songs into each playlist. Edit the sync properties for each drive to only sycn to those playlists. Sync!

Battery

I'm having the same problem! I've had my Sansa e130 for exactly one year today. I loaded new music on it last night and when I tried to turn it on, it said "searching internal memory for new music." I left it on and this morning it wouldn't come back on with new batteries or even when hooked to a computer! I sent an e-mail to the company for help since there is no reset button. I haven't heard anything yet. I suggest you contact SanDisk too. They may have a problem. And I can't believe someone actually suggested as a solution to put a new battery in it or hook it up! No duh! We're looking for real help here, not the obvious things to try.
