These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
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/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, 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.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

This is my final cry: My mp3 sansa wont turn on, i made the mistake of dropping it a week ago and it wont turn on. Ive tried the reset the method(15-30secs) but it doesnt work...... at all. it wont turn...

You could try the Updater program and see if you can un-brick the chip. Go to the SanDisk site and download the Updater program, follow all instructions. That is the only thing that might work, as it may have broken an internal circuit.

Not sure but it could be dead, but dont worry till you do a hard reset by pressing and holding down the "select(Square button)"and "volume up" buttons.

I just got mine today and been looking through the sandisk forum.

Hope that helps bye :)

Mp3 player wont play songs or anything

Only 2 suggestions here: 1) Make sure your HOLD switch is not enabled. 2) Try to update the firmware If neither of these work, time to send the unit back to Sandisk

Freezing

These units are noted for this problem. They cannot be fixed. I bought to for Christmas presents and after 2 days one was stuck on the "Initialization" Screen. Went back to Circuit & exchanged them both because there was a major hardware/firmware upgrade on the new ones. After about a week, same problem. Now I'm just going to return them. You can only return it or throw it away.
