The folder is hidden. You need to enable hidden files and folders in Folder Options on your computer. If you have the refresh database failed message often., you will need to format the device. Best of Luck.

    To format; connect it to your computer (in either mode). Go to my computer, right click on the device and select format.

    (If you do not see format, then select open, then right click on the ppi.nand, then select format.

    Do not select Quick Format unless you are using Windows Vista.

    Best of Luck.

Yesterday I was creating a database template using mysoftware's My Database V6.5 product that I found on the internet (30 days free trial), I went to save the template and a huge portion of the template...

probably because free trials are only there to allow you to move around the program to see if it is suitable to your expectations
it is not there to use and save data as that is not the purpose of free trial

I try to listen to one particular song, but Sansaclip 2gb freezes

Epsilon - delete that one song and see if the other songs play fine

unschool:
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.
