When turning on my sansa player, I get the message “FAT is corrupted. Connect the device to a computer and”, and then it refuses to work. The problem appeared after synchronizing mp3 files to the attached external memory card. I’ve done this before without problems, and the device has been functioning well for the couple of months I’ve had it.
I have tried using chckdsk on the device, but get the following message after the computer has been checking for a while: “File system type is RAW. CHCKDSK is not available for RAW drives”.
Please help. I’m going on holiday in a few days and it would suck not to have a functioning mp3 player.
