    It happened same with me. Then I switched off the player by pressing power off button for 5-8 secs. Then I pressed rec button with the hold key in lock position, at the same time i pressed the power on button and came into recovery mode. Then I connected it to MyPc and recovered using sansa recovery tool available in ScanDisk site. After that its working fine.............

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.

Hanged

First, uninstall all Sansa-related software that is installed on your computer. Then, I would load the version of the software from Sandisk's website - it is more up to date than the installation CD. After installation, replug your mp3 player into the computer and try again.

Help i can't open my sansa E200

Go to the place where you bought your Sansa E200 and ask them to have the firmware reinstalled. Most mp3/mp4 players crashes its firmware when you are working on something and the battery goes down. There is nothing wrong with your gadget's harware, just a software issue.. that's all.


A Simple Thank You is Good enough
