These features help you solve the problems that can result from adding, deleting, or replacing files that your operating system, applications, and devices require in order to function. Most of these features are available on all three versions of Windows XP: Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional, and Windows XP 64-Bit Edition. The recovery feature or features that you use depend on the type of problem or failure you encounter. Use the following list to determine which features to use to address a specific problem.
Feature: Recovery Console When to use it: If using Last Known Good is unsuccessful, and you cannot start the computer in Safe Mode.

To use the Recovery Console, restart the computer with the installation CD for the operating system in the CD drive. When prompted during text-mode setup, press R to start the Recovery Console. What it does: From the Recovery Console, you can access the drives on your computer. You can then make any of the following changes so that you can start your computer: Enable or disable device drivers or services. Copy files from the installation CD for the operating system, or copy files from other removable media. For example, you can copy an essential file that had been deleted.

If it wont connect to the PC, you need to put it into recovery mode and format it with the recovery tool from SanDisk.
Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.
You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.
- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.
Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.
Best of Luck.
