HI, I am having Sansa Clip 4GB Capacity. When i Switch it on it does not get Switch ON. WHen i Connect it to Computer in MSC mode my computer recognize it as a “Removable Disk” with capacit 4.03MB. It does not allow me to either format it or open it. i TRIED usind Sandisk Firmware updater but it says connect ur player to ur computer and when recognized press FINISH. but on pressing FINISH nothing happens and the message remains as it is. PLease Advice me What could be the problem and possible solution.

What happens when you try to format it?  Absolutely nothing?  No message from Windows?

the message windows give is “Disk in Drive I is not formatted. Do you Want to format it now?”

If i say yes then it opens the format dialog box where is shows me the following things:

Capacity: 4.03MB

File System: FAT

On Pressing START button to format it says “Windows was Unable to complete the Format”.

one more thing it doen not give me any other option like FAT 16 or FAT 32 etc.

Perhaps a simple question, but:  did you try a system reset?  On switch held uppermost for 15-20 seconds.

HI TRIED EVERYTHING. I TALKED TO THE CUSTOMER REP. ITS TOTALLY DEAD. GOT IT CHANGED IT FROM THE DEALER. THE SYMPTOMS WHICH LEADS TO CONCLUSION THAT PLAYER WAS HAVING HARDWARE PROBLEM IS.

GO TO MY COMPUTER. RIGHT CLICK THE DRIVE ICON CORRESPONDING TO THE PLAYER. GO TO PROPERTIES AND SEE IF IT SHOWS SIZE = 0 BYTES  IT MEANS PLAYER HAS HARDWARE PROBLEM. THEN THE ONLY SOLUTION IS GET IT REPLACED FROM THE DEALER. 

ANYWAY THANKS FOR THE HELP BUDDY.
