    When the Sansa Express keeps freezing you can RESET the device using next step:
    The device can be either on or off, player NOT connected to the computer:
    Press and hold the Volume Up (+) and Select buttons simultaneously for approximately 20 seconds.

    When the "rebuilding database" message keeps coming back, the player will need an update.
    Use the Sansa Firmware Updater (works on Windows only) or go for the matching download on the forum:
    The Sansa Firmware Updater will contain the driver for the computer to perform a firmware update on your player [ METHOD 1 ].
    When downloading the driver package manually, first put the driver "StMp3Rec.sys" in the correct folder on your computer. Next start the SansaExpressUpdater [ METHOD 2 ].
    During this update, connection between player and the computer is based on MTP mode, Media Transfer Protocol: Drivers and software are needed to get access to the player.

    The player could also be accessed in MSC mode, seeing the player as a removable disk. How to get connection in MSC mode, see next link:

    Preformat : By Fix-shad0w

    Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
    Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
    Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
    In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
    Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
    Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    I found the best solution was take the Sansa Express outside and break it with a hammer. Then never buy a Sansa again.

    Hope this helped. :)
