Question about SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player

1 Answer

My Sansa e260 Mp3 player isn't recognised by Windows and will not show up as connected.

I just bought a Sansa e260 for $80, 4gb of space. Looked like a good mp3 player but now that I've tried to acutally use it, it turns out that I cannot acutally place music on it because when I plug in the usb cable to the computer it doesn't do anything.

When I first plug it in the usb light lights up for a split second.

I am using a usb hub, I was wondering if it was a power issue but I highly doubt that as I am using a Logitech usb hub.

I also downloaded the drivers for it, there was a similar question asked before. The website didn't have drivers for the e260 though, only the e200. Even in the box I got the e260 on the manual was for the e200.

Any information would be helpful.

E200 is the generic name for the entire e-series including the e250, e260, and e280. The only difference between the models is the amount of internal memory. The e200 driver is used for all models in the series, and the e200 manual likewise covers the series.

Sansa e260 mp3 not recognised as a device on my computer


An Update: that yellow square means that it is not recognised, I missed it on the first read through. It means you do not have the required driver to run this application. First port of call is Microsoft Support and see if they have any thing, else Google it and try to find a free one that supports your player. Sorry about my previous post.

When I try to sync my Sansa e260, only a few of the songs actually get transferred to the Sansa from my computer. I've tried several times, and what is on the Sansa does not agree with what I have/had in...


Did you check the format supported by Sansa Player. If the format of your songs are not supporting by Sansa, try to convert those to compatible format and then sync .

Please let me know the result.

Thanks

Space is taken by my video but video is not showing it on there


I suspect that the Video is not in a 'compatible' format.
Delete the video and verify the sort of format that is compatible.
Genrally - thats the way out.

PC cannot detect Sansa e260


Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

My Sansa e260 only has half its memmory.....


reformat the drive by connecting in MSC USB mode. (Change in settings on your mp3 player) Connect the mp3 player to the computer and go to MyComputer (usually on the desktop of windows XP) Right click on Sansa260 drive and move down to format. It takes a few minutes and I did disconnect while it still said writing on the mp3 screen. All files were gone and I reloaded the songs. It seems to be working fine now.
