Hey, 1st, thx for this great gadget, it changed my life!!
Second, is there any wishlist? I would like it not to erase its track memmory (I mean, to remember the track from one time to another) when i plug and unplug it to a computer.
I use lots of files containing audiobooks (mp3 format) and whenever i connect the device to a computer, it will loose the position where I was, and i will have to search for it again.
Thankyou guys for your hard work!!

Hello everyone! I am a new here. I bought Sansa Express 2 Gb.
I have a problem with my player, I decided to update the firmware, but it completely went wrong.
1) Sansa Firmware Updater did not work after few tries (Windows XP), the installation didn't start.
2) I downloaded the zip file with 01.01.12 firmware for Europe, unzipped it to my Desktop, moved the mentioned file to windows 32/..., then I started the SansaExpressUpdater and after a few seconds I got the message:
"SCSI Sense code: Device reported an undefined sense code
0xf0, 0x0, 0x9, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0xa, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0"
Then the update quickly finished, with text "Your device is updated" but no text no name of the firmware version. Player shut off, then connected again to computer. I tried this many times, but no progress. When I disconnect the player and turn it on only San Disk logo appears and then nothing (black screen).
Please, help me to make my Sansa Express live again!!!

> Anyone have any ideas?
I ordered a Coby 4G mp3 player, has not arrived yet. It is the same "all in one" format as the Sansa. It does not have expandable flash and takes a AAA battery, I forget if it can record. I do not know if it is any better, it hardly seems like it could be worse. I used to think SanDisk stuff was great, but based on my experiences with the Sansa player that is downgraded to "junk": takes forever to turn on when loaded with 3GB of music, hard to use (poor user interface), cannot play while charging, bad random play, easy to corrupt and make unusable. It could be a lot worse, but it could also be a lot better and my guess the competition is better.

Hi i tried to update my sansa express. connect it with the pressing - volume and everything. I didn't back up just music, and then I formated the sansa.
does anyone can help me with a back up you can share? a copy of your files or something? I cannot update and now it does not even turn on.
I used to have version 01.01.05A, i think any version will help.

I have the same exact problem, but I have the 1GB version and I'm using Windows Vista. Same exact error message and all. When I try to connect to the computer it shows a graphic of the mp3 player and the computer connected by some weird blob (looks like static and it's in the shape of a square). When the device isn't connected to the computer and I try to turn it on, I get the SanDisk logo and then nothing. I hope someone can help.

Nevermind. I just got mine fixed. I looked at the "How I debricked my Sansa", or whatever that forum was called, and here's how I fixed it: I held down the (-) key while plugging it in and kept it held down (it may take a few tries); there should be a pop-up asking to install the software, let it automatically find the correct software (should be the top option); once that's installed, do the usual firmware install, saying yes to formating the player; this time, it works and doesn't give that annoying error message. I hope it works for you like it did for me.

I have a SanDisk Express 1G, I am running MS Windows XP professional on my work computer so need a driver that it can use on this computer. Where can I get it and what is the name of it?
