Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I shorted out my player. Is there some way to rescue voice files ?

I use my player to record songs that I write. Very useful, since I write all the time. I screwed up bad. I was hooking up a subwoofer in my ride and used the e260 to test it. The player was hooked up already and I shorted one of the RCA wires positive terminal to the negative when I was inserting it. The player turned off. It will turn back on but with nothing on the screen and it will not turn off manually. I tried hooking it up to my pc and it will not recognize it. You can smell that something has burned also.
I am feaking out here. Is it possible there is chip where this info could still be ok ?
Please say yes !

MY MP3 PLAYER KEEPS SAYING FILE SYSTEM ERR


you have to generate the system file in your player. you can doing this by recording your own voice or recording a fm station song(if the option is present) and save it to the device. after that reset your device and upgrade it using the firmware manager from the software cd . but this will format your device and all the data will be lost

My mp3 wont be found


the fact that is you need to generate a system file in your player. this can be done by two things. if you are having a voice recorder in your player, record a voice and store it in your phone. or record an ongoing fm song in the player and save it. after this try connecting your device .and still if the problem persists reset the device. thanks for using fixya. please dont forget to rate my solution

Cant delete files from mp3 player


While the song is playing press and hold down the MENU button. That should take you to the list of songs otherwise you'll get an option for either File Navigator or Playlists. If so, make sure File Navigator is highlighted, press the OK button (centrally located on lower front). In either case, make sure the song you want to delete is highlighted then press the Record button (the one with the dot on it). Use up or down, if Delete is not already highlighted, then press the OK button.

TIME FOR VOICE RECORDER IN 512MB


Not very much. It depends on how many songs are already in the player. The problem is that the recordings are made in WAV format, and WAV format takes up MUCH more space than an mp3 file. If you had no other songs on the player, I would say an hour maximum - maybe much less.

Do this procedure for "voice" mode to delete voice recordings:

Delete file (stop submenu) - Delete corresponding files and save files in Music mode, Voice mode or FM mode.
1. In stop interface (FM without stop interface)
2. Short press "MODE" to enter stop submenu
3. Click "NEXT" or "PREV" to choose "single" or "all" files
4. Short press "MODE" to enter the Delete interface
5. Click "NEXT" to change "no" into "yes"
6. Short press MODE to confirm the delete prompt
"Delete all" will delete all related files stored in the selected folder. For example, if in music mode "Delete all" will delete all the music files, while other recorded files (e.g. voice recordings or FM recordings) will not be deleted.
Likewise, if "Delete all" is used when in the "Replay" menu, this will delete all recorded files but leave music files intact.
FM is much simpler – "Delete" or "Delete all" will delete the station(s) saved before.
