ALL DATA WILL BE LOST WITH THIS PROCEDURE!! You can try a ROM recovery. - TURN OFF UNIT - Place hold switch so orange shows - Hold down the REC button with the red dot on the side of the player. - Whilst holding the REC button, press the power button as if to turn on the unit - Let go of the REC button You should see the recovery console. YOU WILL LOSE ALL DATA!! However you will also have a working player. Hope this helps.

    If ALL else fails or you are in the BLUE RING category (only thing that happens is blue ring lights up)

I cannot acses my ipod from computer to update my songs


First, plug both ends if the wire in the right places. Then, after you log in, turn on your mp3 player. My Sansa Fuze will appear in the My Computer folder; yours probably will too. To add anything, you have to access it from My Computer-> [name of mp3 player] ->Music/Video/Pictures to add these things. While you're pasting stuff to the mp3 player, the screen of the mp3 player will say "writing"- don't unplug your mp3 player until the screen just says "connected". The media will refresh, and the content should be available

On the intro screen it freezez and eventually goes to the next screen and says refreshing database but it dosent refresh


This seems to happen when the database gets corrupted.

1. Turn off the player.

2. Plug the usb cable to the computer, don't plug it to the player.

3. Slide the lock switch to the right, you will see an orange strip.

4. Hold the menu button to start the player. Don't release it yet. Wait until a shutdown message appears and the player goes off again.

5. Plug the usb cable to the player end. The player should go on again. The player should mount as a disk on your computer. Find this disk and back up its contents.

6. Format the player, as explained elsewhere.

7. Disconnect the usb cable. This time the database should refresh properly. Once this is done, slide the the lock switch to the left and turn off the player.

8. Turn the player back on. It should work, but you will have to load your stuff again.

9. Redo steps 1 to 5, except that now should copy your music, videos, etc, back into the player.

10. Repeat step 7.

11. Turn the player back on. It should work again.

Not enough space?


What i would recommend you to do is to format the player using the player itself and if that doesnt solve the problem i would recommend you to use windows media player to format your device...to format your player using windows media player go under the sync tab..assuming that you are running windows media player 11..your device should be listed there on the right side...just right click on it and hit format and that should solve the problem..DO NOT USE MY COMPUTER TO FORMAT THE PLAYER BECAUSE IT WILL DELETE EVERYTHING ON THE PLAYER INCLUDING THE FIRMWARE...let me know if that doesnt solve the problem...

HOW TO GET IT GOING


Easy...download Windows Media player version 11 - up-load any cd onto it... click on Sync and drag and drop your music into it (if it still does not recognise your player...click on refresh in sync and it will find it)

How do you refresh database?


This just means that the player is refreshing the songs on the list, it does not mean that you have to do anything.
