    My player will be playing fine and all of a sudden it freezes. You have to sit and hold the power button for about 2 minutes and it will cut off.

    My SanDisk Sansa also freezes and nothing I do but wait, sometimes for at least an hour, will restart it.

My sandisk sansa e260 mp3 player is always freezing . when i turn it on it pops out a window that says "refreshing database" . then stops and only load 15% of it .


Hello,

As you may have noticed already, the player can be switched off when freezing and put on again, resetting the device as next:
1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button.
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.


Sometimes a firmware update or reinstallation is required, to get the player function normally again, see:

Sansa e250 freezes!


This should take care of it;

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe

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.
