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.

Stucked at Refresh database

When the Sansa reads "refreshing database," what it is doing is going through all the songs you've loaded on to it, pulling out the "tag" information (Artist, Album, Song Title, Genre) so it can add this information to its own database which it uses to display the songs to you in its menus.

If it gets stuck during this process, usually it's because of a corrupt song file, or a song file in a format it doesn't understand.

Note that the e280 is only able to play MP3 and WMA audio formats. If you've loaded a different type of audio file onto your Sansa, you'll need to remove them.

If the songs you've recently loaded have all been MP3 and/or WMA, you may have loaded a corrupted file onto your Sansa. Try removing the songs you recently added, and see if the problem goes away.

MP3 not being recognized by computer

My opinion.
No one here seems to understand the question...unless it's just me.
Not being recognized by computer means you should not be able to disconnect the device safely. Am I right?
I cannot seem to disconnect the device safely, which means that the refresh database option will not display and do so!
Help?
