i will surely help you. you have mentioned that you can see all the songs when your mp3 player is connected to the computer. so what you can do is, you can very well go ahead & format all the songs in your mp3 player using your computer. then you transfer a few songs to your mp3 player(the songs which were not getting recognized in your mp3 player). this should solve your problem.
with the sansa e260 a disk comes with it and you need to install the formater that is in the disk...put the disk in your computer and then the compter will start to load a page that has sever options then click the button that says install the sansa media converter...once its done converting(converting may take a while) the video should be on you mp3 player if not the video has been dumped (or placed) somewhere...you will want to go to file (this is in the sansa media converter) and then click output folder...then follow where the out put folder goes....then once you have found the video left click it once then right click it then click cut...then open up my computer go to the mp3 player then go to the video folder in the mp3 player then right click somewhere in the window and click paste then it will transfer...after the transfer unhook you sansa from you computer and check the video...(it will be sideways just to let you know.....its supposed to be that way so you get the biggest picture out of that screen)
I recently purchased the Sandisk e260 Mp3 player but my PC is not recognizing the mp3 player & i can't transfer my music to the mp3 player. I tried connecting to 3 different PCs & they all don't seem to recognize the mp3 player. any ideas what else i can try?
Also, have you gone to Windows Media Player 11 and tried to sync it?
When you plug the Sansa in, Vista should recognize and the Sansa should show connected. XP should do the same thing.
This is for the Sansa e200 series
