Question about SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player

Songs won't Sync

I have had my mp3 for a few months and everything was going fine until a few weeks ago. All of a sudden, my player refused to synchronize my files. Some days it might synchronize some of them and skip others, but none of them play when i turn the player on. I am using Windows Media Player 11 and it says the error is C00D1236. I tried replacing the sync cable and that didn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

To enter recovery mode:

1. Make sure the hold button is on, (look for orange) and hold down the record button and plug into the computer.

2. A 16MB Format drive should appear in My Computer under Devices with Removable Storage, you are now in recovery mode.

Now download the following File:


http://www.sandisk.com/assets/file/downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe


Run the file after downloading and follow the on screen instructions, making sure to connect your player in recovery mode.

Make sure you select the option to Format when giving the option.

after running the program, remove hold from on top of the player and disconnect the player when completed and completion should be set for the player.

After running this, try downloading songs again. Remember to make sure you authorize your player and ensure that the songs being transferred are available for transfer.

Bad File Error

the player's DB is corrupt:

Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - 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.
Firmware Upgrade- 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

Sandisk keeps skipping/freezing songs!

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

My problem

The Windows Media Player 11 issue is sporadic - it often takes hold after you have updated Windows Media Player with a "Hotfix" - Microsoft has been issuing them at least monthly for the past 6 months with their Windows Updates. So it makes sense that your player was working fine one day and not the next. This is definitely NOT an electrical problem.

Erases Everything: Connect your iLo 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 "iLO 2GB player" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything, and the player should work normally after reloading the songs.

My iLO MP3 wont download anymore

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Device keeps shutting off by itself and won't synch

Make sure the songs are in the right format. Napster is a real bear about disappearing songs - try another music svc.
