Try plugging it into your computer. go to my computer, and double click sansa 260 (or what ever yours is) then you should see a drive called internal memory, right click and reformat . You'll still lose your stuff tho.

My SanDisk is 8gb and when I download photos the device reads unsupported media format. Please advise how to correct this Ralph Reiser


You need to use the supplied Sansa Media Converter program to convert photos (and videos) to a format the Sansa can handle. If you need the SMC, you can download it from

Not working


I had the same problem. I re-formatted the player, and now it works fine. Sure, formatting erases all the music, but at least it works now!

To format, just go to "My Computer", find your player in the list, right click on it, then select format.. you're done!

Sansa e260 freezes up


It's not suppose to say Refresh Database when you connect it to the computer, it's only suppose to say that when you eject it OUT of your computer.

Did you load a massive amount of files during your last sync?

I don't think there's any need in resetting it if it is able to turn off and on. What I recommend doing is formatting it. Remember, formatting the player will cause you to loose ALL your media stored in the device. To format go to "My Computer" > "Sansa e260" right click and go down to format.

If it formats, then good. Turn it on and it should say "Refresh Database". Change the mode of your player to MTP(?) so that it will no longer refresh the database after transferring media(?).

Connect it back to your computer and reload your media onto it that was wiped out during the format. Now disconnect it and see if it works... It should.

If that doesn't work this should do the job for you: http://sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?C...

Always remember to update the firmware on your products, it is a wise idea to do so. (: http://sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?C... < Get updates with that.

Drain the battery if whatever you do don't work. Sometimes removing the battery for a few seconds on putting it back in works.

If you think you attacked this problem from every angle and still no luck. Contact sandisk: support@sandisk.com Give them some time, their swamped with emails at the moment.

Change the Mode on the device and try to format again.

SETTINGS>MODE or USB MODE.

If that doesnt work. This will;

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.




Best of Luck.
