Doing this now for my hubby and online instructions are here: https://www.corrlinks.com/MP3Reset/.

includes the links and what is needed. Basically what is needed to be sent to the company is the MP3 player, a money order (depends on if it is working or not for cost) and the form in the link they provide.

Hope this helps someone! corrlinks com

Give the prison a call. I am sure they will help you unlock it permanently.

I'm released from fed prison and need my mp3 player unlock where do I send it to do so or is there a way I can do it myself


Hello, Tara -

I found some information about the Federal prison MP3 players on the Zoukis Prisoner Resources web site (one of the suppliers of services and products to Federal prisons) here:
https://www.prisonerresource.com/prison-survival-guide/things-to-do-in-prison/mp3-players/

At the end of the information on that web page, it states:
(Quote)
When you leave prison you can take your MP3 Player with you, but you will have to mail it to the Advanced Technologies Group, and pay a $15 fee, for them to remove the 14-day revalidation security feature.
(End quote)

However, the article does not provide the address for Advanced Technologies Group to which you can send your MP3 player.

I did find the Advanced Technologies Group (Keefe Group) website however. I know Keefe supplies many products and services to prisons because I know some Keefe Group employees.

This is the link to the Advanced Technologies Group / Keefe Group Contact Us web page. The phone number for Advanced Technologies Group is in Des Moines, Iowa. Call that number and ask to find out about sending your MP3 player to them, with a check or other payment information.

Best wishes.

I have an mp3 player that I purchased while locked up in a Federal prison, I am now at home and want to find out how to remove the security device.


Can you force it to do a "factory reset" ?
This would reset it to a state BEFORE the prison's I.T. team installed any software.

My sandisk e250 sansa mp3 player does not boot. shows only SanDisk logo. My computer also do not detect the player as new hardware.


  1. Turn off player.
  2. Slide HOLD button to locked position (towards headphone jack).
  3. Press and hold RECORD while connecting to the PC.
  4. Release RECORD when you see "welcome to recovery mode" on the player's LCD.
  5. Open My Computer/Windows Explorer and see if you can find a new removable flash drive labeled "16MB-FORMAT".
  6. Right click on 16MB-FORMAT and select New Folder.
  7. Name the new folder "sansa.fmt" (without the quotes).
  8. Wait one minute.
  9. Reset HOLD back to unlocked position.
  10. Disconnect player from PC.
  11. Wait for player to reboot.
