Question about SanDisk Sansa e270 MP3 Player

1 Answer

My e270 thinks its brand new every time i turn it on.

Every time I turn on my Sansa e270 It goes to the language menu, as if it were brand new. All of my settings are set to default too. This just started happening about a 2 weeks ago, and I did not drop it or do any damage to it. I've also noticed that it takes longer to start up, and to shut down. What could be the problem and/or what should I do?

Driver for sansa e270 for win xp os

Install Windows Media Player 11. The Sansa drivers, and MTP system, are part of WiMP10 / 11. Windows XP "out of the box" has WiMP9, which may be your problem.

The Sansa can function as a flash drive in MSC mode, but your files transferred in MTP will not be available on the PC side.

The Sansa does not require specific drivers from SanDisk, as it's integrated into WiMP.

Go under menu, setting and change the device to MTP or playforsure..

Let me know if that works

Thanky you

Sansa e270 freezes when USB cable disconnected

Reformat the whole thing with Rockbox. That's the whole point with buying the Sansa, as far as I understand.

The display is leaking. Nothing to do but get it replaced/fixed , or purchase a new piece, as I do not think Sansa sells spare LCd's..
