Re: cant get passed recovery mode
This came from another post on fix ya.
For me the solution was this:
After entering the recovery mode (turn off the player, move the hold
button to the right, and press the on and rec button, then connecting to
when the 16 mb folder opens create a NEW FOLDER (not a text
document) called "Sansa.fmt". then disconec the usb and it was fixed.

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.
Hope this would help. Have you updated the firmware of your player? Try updating the firmware of your player. When the player is turn off slide the hold switch for it to show orange/red color. Then press the Record and the menu button until is shows on the screen welcome to recovery mode. Then go to sandisk website and download the firmware update and install it to your computer. When it ask you to connect a device connect the player and update the firmware of the player. If the update is successful then it would ask you to choose a language. Hope this helps
