I got an error message and now my MP3 player won't turn on.
I uploaded some songs to my SanDisk Sansa c140 MP3 player using Windows Media Player 11. Then I went to the section that lists the songs on my MP3 and noticed a bunch of radio recorded songs there (the ones you can record from the MP3). Most of the files were corrupt and had been for some time (I do not know why), so I decided to delete them since they only froze my MP3 when I chose to listen to them. After synchronizing some new songs and deleting the corrupt ones, I unplugged my MP3 and it said 'please wait' or something like that. A few seconds later, it said 'system fail' and turned off. Now it won't turn on! If I plug my MP3 back into the USB, it says 'Unknown Drive'. Is there any way I can reset my MP3 so it would work again? Thanks in advance.
Re: I got an error message and now my MP3 player won't...
I was formatting my c140 and it got interupted by a power outage.
When I started the c140 I get nothing but blank screens now. When I go
into windows explorer all I can do is see the sansa c140 sign in the
folders menu but it won;t let me reformat it again.
It also won't show up in disk management as a mass storage device.
I'm using Xp-sp2 with media player 11 .... which is neither here or there since I can'r format the thing in the first place.
I do turn it on all I get is pretty colored blank screens. But I do get
the pictures of the microphone, the settings , pictures etc.
Any ideas how to recover the original setings or reload the firmware?

if you are trying to delete files from windows media player totally...(when you delete it gives you that option to delete from library or pc)...it seems you just been deleting from wmp library..thats why its still there....(if you dont want a particular file delete from pc).....same goes for mp3 players...you can delete from playlist or device...your choice....make it good....hope this helped
Do you use windows media player 10 or 11 to sync music into the mp3 player? and have you updated firmware? Go to sansa.com and download a firmware updater and then try formatting the mp3 player, use WM and click on the arrow below sync and go to format.
I had the same problem with mine. So i was using the program Windows Midea Player when i converted my songs to my MP3 player which at first they were in WMA format. then i tryed to change. so i changed the format to MP3 and that put the songs into order of the album.
