    I formatted my Sansa e200 mp3 player because i was having trouble, it wouldn't let me take any files off of it, so i researched around and found that the problem was with the formatting, so i thought "if Leopard is having trouble with this (i'm on a leopard macbook) then if i format it to the Mac Journaled option in Disk Utility, i'll have no problem!! huzzah!


    don't ever let me run a country...i was wrong, and now it's not showing up on my mac AT ALL or on a windows machine so i could reformat it properly, i'm now stuck with no MP3 player which really sucks as i have a big train journey tomorrow

    Anyone have any idea's ? :( i've spent a fair bit of time looking around, but no answer, and the Sansa/Sandisk people are useless

    does the thing mount in disk utility?


    failing that i'd plug it in to a windows box and let the sansa software try to do it's thing
