Turn off the player. Enable the hold switch for it to show orange/red color. Press and hold the record and menu button until the player says welcome to recovery mode. ==Have you updated the firmware of the player?=== IF no Please continue.== Download the firmware of the player at sandisk.com and run and install it on your computer. When the firmware updater ask you to connect a device connect the player to the computer and perform the update on the player.

Refresh database


Sansa e200 provides a RESET function for unresponsive units. Press and hold the MENU button for 15 seconds, and this should work to regain normal funtionality. Please note: settings and adjustments from the last operation WILL BE LOST. The files however should remain.
