Question about SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player
Have read all sorts of fixes nothing works it was working for awhile but now keeps doing same thing turn it on and frezes at refresh database so frustrating
The Same thing happened to Me once. All you have to do is reformat it. You can do this by first putting the player in recovery mode. You can do this by putting the hold button on the side where you can see the orange and then plug the device into the computer while holding the power/Menu button. Then go to my computer to Verify that it came up as 16MB-Format. Then you can type into the address bar and type in http://mp3support.sandisk.com/firmware/rhapsody-220.127.116.11.zip. then once you do that right click on the file you downloaded and select open with compressed folder and drop and drag to the 16MB-Format drive. In the 16MB-Format drive folder select file menu and select New - Folder and rename it sansa.fmt then press enter to save. Finally move the hold switch back and disconnect the device and look at the screen and verify it is formatting and resetting once it's done and finishes the updates restart and if needed pick your language. check and see if you can use your player.

Haha, Go to your computer with the device plugged in, right click, hit format... and it wipes everything, than sync. And it won't freeze at refresh database!

1. hook sansa mp3 player back into computer
2. hold button until it turns completely off while still connected
3. turn sansa player back on while still connected to computer
4. disconnect usb cable IN THE MIDDLE of the writing process
5. if you disconnect before the "connected" phase, this somehow resets the chip to "stand alone" mode
this worked for me "WAR - EAGLE " go AU tigers :)

I had the same problems, first i could not load songs once I did it would lock up. So I tried the sansa suggestions, change to MSC reload firmware niether worked but now it would lock up on the refresh screen. I did not want try to format the unit so I started trying different things. What I found was when loading songs thru Windows media player some songs had album titles and some did not. Most times the songs without album titles would load but then the player would lock at the refresh screen. Resolution was to remove the album title from each song, Once I did I was able to upload all the songs I wanted, the system did not lock up on either screen and is working with no issues now.
