Half of song list not recognized by Sansa e260


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.

Sansa e260 isn't recognized by my mac


On your Sansa Go to "Settings" then "System Settings" then "USB Mode," change it to MSC, now try connecting it. If that doesn't work try the other modes just in case.
Hope this helps!

Songs will not transfer to E260


Make sure the songs that you put on are in a format compatible with your player.

If they are not compatible they will not show on the screen or play....

Can't get videos onto my sansa


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)

Cannot seem to synch songs to my Sansa e260 (4G) from a CD


In Windows Media Player, go to the little black arrow under the Rip tab --> Rip Options --> Format --> Mp3

Now, re-rip those CD's and transfer them to your player

Not recognized.


Have you downloaded the firmware from sandisk?

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
Go to this site: there is a firware update
also, Media Converter (if you do not have it)

How to videos
More Support information

In the manual it shows that the 4gb is the Sansa e260; is that what you have?

and then transfer them to your Sansa player. Sansa Media Converter offers
features such as cropping, rotating, and resizing before transferring them to your
player as well as the ability to transfer photo and video files to your microSD card.
Refer to the Sansa Media Converter software for file formats supported.
To transfer photos and videos to your Sansa player, follow these steps:
1. Connect the Sansa player to your computer.
2. Select Converter using Sansa Media Converter on initial connection.
3. Click Add Media to select photo or video files to be converted.
4. The Sansa Media Converter will store all converted files in My Album. Click
the Album Name box and type in the name you want.
5. Click to start the conversion process. A status box will appear
showing which file(s) are being converted.
