    How exactly do I do a hard reset?

    I tried wiping it clean and reformatting it to FAT32 - that didn't work - I got it wiped clean and reformatted, but it's still in Chinese.

    I tried using Sansa's utility to download and overwrite the firmware, but I have the latest with 4.x.x and can't get the utility to overwrite it since I apparently have the most up-to-date firmware already. I'm stuck.

    Any ideas on how to do a hard reset?

Somehow my language got changed from English. How do I reset the language or just reset the player to factory settings?

From the main menu, select the Settings menu (four slide controls). Language is the second item in that menu, and you should find English in there.

My friend went into my settings and changed the language to China

菜单 设置 语言 英语
Menu Settings Language English

Thats a translation if your SanDisk uses symbols for chinese to change it back to english.

Well, go to the settings picture (just above the headphones and disk)
Go down three times and it should be Language.
So you can change it to French there
