    Have a look at the link below, normally a .bin file is used by the updater application to update the firmware, so you wouldn't open it directly in Windows.  There's a link on the page below to download a firmware updater, not sure what model of Sansa you have so if it's on the list, I would try using that.

      Thanks for your help. However, I have tried this but when I try to do an update i get a muessage that says there is no Sansa Device connected and that is because i keep getting a message on my my Sansa MP3 player that reads " Load main image failed: Switch to recovery mode" I switch to recovery mode as suggested but when I try to do the update i get the message that nothing is attached ???!!!?!?! The Sansa MP3 Player is not being recognized ????!!!???!

      I see.  I've never owned a Sansa product so I'm afraid I can't be of much further help, other than to suggest perhaps trying a different USB port or a different computer, just to be sure.
      Have you tried contacting their support, if available?
